So The Shape of Water (my review, for what it’s worth, is here) got a whole bunch of Oscar nominations. I’m gonna use that as my spur for writing Volume Two of Lives of Famous Catholics. See if I can get it done in time for the ceremony in early March. No title yet, but my subject is director Guillermo Del Toro. I know, I know — another film director? But I can’t help myself. For what it’s worth, I still hope to finish Gaga Confidential, perhaps pegged to the release of A Star is Born later this year. I have plans for the other four entries that will make up the eventual seven-story book, but there’s no sense in getting ahead of myself. Let’s see if I can do one.

    Is Chris Farley going to make the cut? I’ve toyed with the idea of taking him up myself … having called myself a “Chris Farley Catholic” on a number of occasions a few years ago.

    Don’t worry, I’ll never actually do it.

    Agree wholeheartedly with your take on Shape of Water, by the way.

  2. I’ll supply the tequila – just let me know when you’re running low…

    Chug! Chug! Chug!
