Haiku Movie Reviews

A shout out to my friend Leeny and her new website, 353 Review:

353 Review

It's your source for the most concise movie reviews in the world. Period. They're all done in Haiku!

Leeny has an aptitude for summarization and a wicked cool sense of humour. I do feel obligated to warn you, though. She has a penchant for zombies.

Check out 353 Reviews, it'll put a smile on your face.

I think a site like this one is a cool idea. It's a common place for authors to post and find author tours.

Unfortunately, it has one flaw (for me, at least). Though I'd love to know when authors are hitting Vancouver I tired of creating freaking accounts. I caved for Meetup and I caved for Facebook, but knowing when an occasional author of interest is hitting town for an event I may or may not be able to attend isn't worth the pain-in-the-ass factor of hitting a website with an account I need to remember.

To the folks at BookTour.com. If you want my eyeballs, copy this implementation: jobs.joelonsoftware.com. After you execute the search you get an RSS feed you can subscribe to. Brilliant. I'll understand if there's a discrete ad, but it better be discrete. And I'll understand if there isn't full info, though you'd better at least tell me the basics so I'll know if it's worth clicking to follow-up.

Super bonus marks for an iCal feed.
