Mortification Monday

It's still Monday over here on the West Coast, so there's still time for a late edition of Mortification Monday.   Monday, the 15th of May, 1995 Dear Diary, I had a softball game tonight.

Rejection Playlist Volume 3, Track 3: “Strange Days”

I've been listening to a lot of We Are Augustines lately. Their songs fit seamlessly into the scenes I'm writing for Valentine and the music blends nicely for the rainy weather that has settled back over for Seattle (time to break out the Bourbon and start a fire in the fireplace and throw some beef stew … Continue reading Rejection Playlist Volume 3, Track 3: “Strange Days”

My thoughts on Banned Book Week

Earlier this week I compared Banned Book week to Christmakuh and Mardi Gras. "Show me some skin and I'll show you where the banned books are. Better yet, keep yourself covered.

Bad Poetry Friday

Bruised Words (c. 2/10/1998) Drink your coffee like you're the last man on earth smoke your cigarettes like you're giving birth nicotine and coffee destroy you slowly and I turn on the TV to another scandal beating in the street can't drown you out yelling obscenities at my heart   Notes: There are so many things … Continue reading Bad Poetry Friday

Rejection Playlist Volume 3, Track 1″Can’t Stand Me Now”

This Libertine's song from 2004 is a perfect start to Volume 3 of the Rejection Playlist. It's the classic Indie Rock (and Indie Author) anthem.   Oh, you can't stand me now (No, you can't stand me now) You can't stand me now (Oh, you can't stand me now) You can't stand me now (No, … Continue reading Rejection Playlist Volume 3, Track 1″Can’t Stand Me Now”
