Meet The Writer

Today I met Eric Ian Steele. He wrote Clonehunter. I told people that I was finally going to meet the Clonehunter writer and they said "Is he coming here to hurt you?" Lucky for me security was very tight at the border which meant that instead of me being found in a bag in the East River, he, his mom, and I strolled around, talked movies and TV, and ate chocolate.

I know, I know, there's no picture of us together. But we did take a picture. I'll have to wait until he sends it to me before I can post it. Then I can prove we actually met.

He also said the most amazing thing I'd ever heard in my entire life. "Magnificent 7 but with robots." I do not understand why we aren't making this movie right now.

That idea is simply brilliant.

Oh man, the more I think about it the more awesome it seems.
Last week Joe Chapman convinced me we should just use all CG robots in Robowar. That means that bird-legged backwards-knee robots are back in the equation! Woo!

Have you ordered your Project London comic book yet? I have.

It's just gonna make me jealous. But OK, I'll see it! ;-)

So. "Magnificent 7" w/robots. Are ALL the characters robots? Or just the 7 warriors? Or maybe the bad guys are robots, slaughtering humans, but the humans hire 7 rogue 'bots to help them? Regardless, lots of possibilities.

I was thinking that the bad guys were aliens. But you could go in any direction here. The bad guys could be humans and the villagers aliens. Or the other way around. The Magnificent 7 could be made up of aliens, humans, cyborgs, and robots.
There's no way to lose with this idea.
