Roald Dahl is so hot right now
The best part of this little summary of Roald Dahl's new hotness in the movie realm is that Robert Altman may be producing and directing a series of Dahl's adult short stories for TV. (If the concept of 'adult Roald Dahl' blows your mind, please procure a copy of Switch Bitch immediately.)

Have you read "My uncle Oswald"? Hilarious, and oh so sick.
Yes! Also highly recommended! The more I think about this, the more I hope this project gets off the ground. The only question is: who do you cast as Uncle Oswald?
Roald Dahl is a fine writer! Kid stuff, adult stuff, memoirs, short stories, all fantastic. He is great because he writes a good story AND he's a word lover. And he has that bit of a cruel streak that you need to be truly funny or interesting or kind.
The best author in the world that has an imagination and is so creative.He makes up words and crazy ideas. He is insane and thats why I like him.
