"Whether working by analog or digital methods, you're using the two most important tools you have at your disposal
: your brain to work out what to do and your hands to steer the tools to do it."

Well stated and an excellent post

"And to the O.P. : congrats on the guns! I thought the movie was pretty good, with stellar acting from the leads, but should have been made into a series instead."

Thanks Joe, that means a lot!
I loved the movie too and while not canon with the books, it was a great intro to the story for those not familiar with
the 8 book series.
FYI, apparently the plan IS to make a series based on the 4th book "Wizard and Glass". This book is mainly all backstory from Roland's teenage past (no spoilers here !)
I'm a huge fan of this part of Stephen King's work, can you tell ? ;)
Also, during the recent auction of props from the movie, I was lucky enough to win some production used sketches from Jake's bedroom. If anyone is interested I can scan and post them here.

Me as Roland for Rose City Comicon, with the guns.
My wife took the pic, I'm not a "me pic" kind of guy
but I really like how this one came out, especially
as I didn't know she was taking it !

Candid photos are the best, really. They capture a person better because the stand-still-and-smile sort of pic can never really shake the feel of being staged.

This one's pretty cool. It's moody and just begs to have a story written for it, like a production still in search of a movie. ;)
