Sometimes I Say Merry Christmas--just to piss people off! Seriously, someone at work ACTUALLY said that to me today. Yes, we we're having a private conversation. It was pleasant... and then the guy I was talking too dropped this bombshell, and I knew I had to post it. Sometimes I... Continue reading

Sometimes I wonder if I've bitten off more than I can chew recommencing the journey to complete a MAMMOTH, epic fantasy novel that originally embarked on back in the early to mid 1990s. Comparatively speaking writing a script is a breeze--and even those I found to be grueling and hard.... Continue reading

Some times your writing life can throw you a bone. Okay, so as I proceed writing this post MAYBE I should watch how I mix my metaphors, but's that's how I feel right now. I'm at a GREAT spot in my current writing; I get to edit and rewrite a... Continue reading

Yay, Billy Mernit is still ALIVE! Was starting to wonder... We're still on for a 2014 version of the ASTA Awards, right? Love rule #8, that's where I'm at in my writing life right now. Editing a 1,400 + page epic fantasy novel, and it's STILL GROWING! Love the information dump, I think it does add to a character's complexity and empathy. Anyway, hope fun things are on your plate these days, Billy. And not projects of drudgery, but labors of love that make the time go by sweetly.

Sorry about not posting last week. Excuse: I went to the Seahawks vs. the Raiders with my dad. Had a few too many beers... The Seahawks won! Then the previous week my boss was gone all week and I put in a lot of extra time at work. Anywho, I... Continue reading

Editing a large scale, epic fantasy novel is a grind. There is no two which ways about it. For the past two weeks or so, I have found myself going back to re-edit chapter two. I really wanted to whip out a draft of the first movie based off this... Continue reading

Okay, so now in my editing phase of the epic fantasy novel I'm working on, I'm getting in some strange waters. I'm working on improving my mastermind villain. If you remember right, waaay back (4-1-2012, to be exact) when I did a post on The best vilians in the history... Continue reading

Can your favorite movie genre spawn a similar use of verbage and phrases in society? Yes, I would argue it can. Growing up in the 1980s I watched as others of my peers actually emulated the bone-headed characters from the dopey Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure movies. And more recently,... Continue reading

Lynn Swann that is. Dude, did you see those two catches # 24 of the Seattle Seahawks made against the Washington Redskins on Monday Night Football, October 6, 2014? If not, dude you missed an amazing trick: a beast became a swan. Lynn Swan that is... The first A-MAZING catch... Continue reading

Sometimes as a result of my 2nd shift job, I watch some pretty strange stuff on late at night, were talking 2 a.m. and later. Last week I watched about 10 minutes of "Wierd Science" (1985: Anthony Micheal Hall, Kelly LeBrock, written and directed by John Hughes). Now in all... Continue reading

I have GREAT taste. Really I do. As you should already know my favorite villain of all-time is Dr. Zaius from "Planet of the Apes" (1968) from a post I did waaay back on April of 2012. Now some people say, you become what you praise. Well... if that's the... Continue reading

Okay, so E.C. Henry IS my writing pseudonym. But after this last weekend I think another nicname may be in order: Mr. Indestructible! You see it was nephew's 3rd birthday on Saturday, and my brother hosted a gathering of little Riley's cousins: two girls and one boy. Riley is Obo's... Continue reading

Anyone who has the balls to split Marshawn Lynch wide, lining up as a wide receiver deserves to get some pub. And that's just what m' man Bevell did this last weekend--in the biggest game of the year no less, the Superbowl rematch against the Denver Bronkos (which the Seahawks... Continue reading

The movies: "Ted" (2012: Mark Wahlberg, Seth McFarlane, Mila Kunis), "My Super Ex-Girlfriend" (2006: Luke Wilson, Uma Thurman), "Weekend at Bernie's" (1989: Andrew McCarthy, Jonathan Silverman) and "Bewitched" (2005: Nicole Kidman, Will Farrell); what do they all have in common? They are what I would call, Unique Abilities Romantic Comedies.... Continue reading

Lemme just state right off the bat that I don't think Hollywood produces enough teenage romance movies. And a lot of the time when they do, they muck it up with stuff like vampires, werewolf and zombies: "Twilight" (4 movies 2008-2012, Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattenson), "Jennifer's Body" (2009: staring Megan...

I actually went into my first viewing of Taylor Swift's video for "Shake It Off" with much trepidation, thinking to myself, what if this girl is a bore and proves me wrong that I recently lauded such high acclaim in in once saying that I could see Taylor Swift becoming... Continue reading

Ever I wonder how my 6-year-old nephew, whom I gave the nic-name "Obo" to, would grade me? Does my good outweigh my bad? Let's take a look... Good: I took Obo to Wild Waves. Even better: I took Obo to Wild Waves a second time, this time with sandals so... Continue reading

I did something a little wacky earlier today; I printed out the entire NFL regular season, and predicted the outcome of every game. As a result of this E.C. Henry now predicts that after the 2014 NFL regular seaon ends here are the teams which will qualify for the playoffs:... Continue reading

Went up to Mt. Rainer last Sunday with my mom. She saw me kinda wallowing last weekend, and just wanted to spend some time with me. We left the house with the best of intentions, go up to Paradise and go hike "our meadow" about a half mile down from... Continue reading

Okay, so in your movie you managed to land Robert De Niro, Katherine Heigl, Amanda Seyfried, and Susan Sarandon. Can't go wrong, right? Ah, what about story? Ah, what about BELIEVABLE drama. The Big Wedding (2013: written and directed by Justin Zackham) is a mess of an attempt at an... Continue reading

Okay, so I'm watching NBC's "The Tonight Show" staring Jimmy Fallon on Wednesday of last week, and guess who was Jimmy's featured guest that night? None other than Taylor Swift. Now, I'll be the first to admit, going into that Wednesday edition of "The Tonight Show" I knew just about... Continue reading

HUGE fan of the NFL. Only played 1 season of organized, after-school, extra curricular, football myself, 8th grade year, didn't know what the fuck I was doing, and the CRAP coaches I had made sure by the end of the season I was still DUMB AS ALL FUCK as pertains... Continue reading

For me it's nothing. I'm 45 years old. Don't have kids. Don't have a wife--or even a girlfriend for that matter. Heck, I don't even have any real friends. When I go out, I go out alone. Sure it cuts down on costs, but it's also not nearly as rewarding... Continue reading
