November bumbles its way into our lives again.
Love 'em or hate 'em, the Red Sox are the champions of baseball for a year and Bush is our president for another four. But through good times and bad, the Blender is here to give romantic writers a place to write and romantic readers a place to read....and message boards to talk about it all.
This month, your lazy Blender-Keeper is providing a special Director's Cut of a previous Double Feature review:
Henry & June and Backbeat was written 7 years ago this month, but finding Backbeat on DVD has led the Keeper to dust it off and polish it up.
As always, read and enjoy!
A nice succinct metaphor.

In high school we milked that line for way more than it was worth. "What class are you going to next, chemistry?" "Yeah...chemistry." Ahh, youth.

Quite the something to awake to.
autumn in my heart
More of darwin's lovely way with prose.
Come to me...
Spirial called this "sumthin a lill'l differnt"...a cool little experiment, I could almost hear it put into some kind of blues or techno song.
This month's top-of-the-page quote.
(three non sequiturs)
Good little collection here.
A bit over the top in place, but still fun. Maybe I just dig on Zombie references.
Coujeaux and those long luscious lines are back.
Men Sleep Snoring
Sing a song o' Misti, pocket full o' rye.
Similar to my own piece first time, this line has two different readings, though the readings support each other rather than contradict.
