Discovery

An obsessive Google search of myself unleashed a song called “The American Book of the Dead” by Greg Brown.  Catch it on CD Baby here. Hear a sample: The American Book of the Dead

Miscellaneous

Random things, mostly stolen from The Daily Grail. Piece from the L.A. Times that’s similarly smug and dismissive as this Christian Science Monitor piece about UFOs.  Book looks promising.  Piece begins: He’s not saying he was abducted by a UFO and probed or anything, but former President Clinton’s chief of staff John Podesta is lending …

Legalization

One day we’ll look back and gawk at the strange police state we’re living in. For the record, I kind of hate smoking pot. Calls attention to my – and everyone else’s – weird insecurities.  Smoked a lot when I was 15, the feeling hasn’t left me.  Maybe I’ll get over that in a thousand …

Crazy Osmonds

Put this on my old blog back in the day, but this song pretty much rules. I don’t have any great beef with the Mormon church.

Speculative Fiction

More Alex Jones madness – again linked by the Drudge Report, which I find interesting because Jones is such a rabid Bush-hater. It was 2017. Clans were governing America. The first clans organized around local police forces. The conservatives’ war on crime during the late 20th century and the Bush/Obama war on terror during the …

Kindle Author

New interview with me at the Kindle Author blog.  For some reason, this escaped me in other interviews, but it’s true. The plot came about in a dream—no kidding. The book’s in part about a writer working on a novel who starts dreaming about people who turn out to be real. In the dreams he’ll …

Left Behind

A confession – I have only read pieces of the Left Behind books.  I still might try to absorb the whole thing, but there’s something about the prose that’s just asking me not to read it.  The emptiness is so thick I find it hard to pay attention. There’s bad prose and then there’s bad …
