Zine Test: Success

Here is a proof of concept that moves the ball down the field of me working on the mythical zine I’ve been talking about for years. For those wondering, the things on top are pieces of cardstock trimmed to 7.11″ X 11″, and they were put together and photocopied at 77%. Who says you never […]

Bootleg Trollope

I occasionally turn to the Darkweb when I look for something legitimately and find that it is not available anywhere. Such is the 1982 BBC / Masterpiece Theater production of Anthony Trollope’s The Warden and Barchester Towerst. I just finished Doctor Thorne, Book three in the series, and vaguely remember seeing Donald Pleasance in this […]

Attempting Normal on Sale

For those of you who are fans of Marc Maron’s podcast, his book Attempting Normal has been out for a few years but the Kindle version has been over $10 for all that time. Right now it is on sale for $1.99 and there is never any way of telling for how long so if […]

Whadda You Want From Me?

Ever since playing this song on Mad at Dad the other day, I’ve had Billy Squier’s “Whadda You Want From Me” in my head. It’s been 48 hours with no sign of slowing down, so why not share it with everyone? I hadn’t heard this song in easily 15 years, maybe more like 25. I […]

Blindspot

I thought Blindspot looked intriguing so I set it on the DVR and only just got to watching it this week. I watched all of the pilot. By 10 minutes into episode 2, I deleted the series recording and all the episodes. I just couldn’t take it. This is even though I really like Jamie […]

Homework of the Bowie Kind

Per my homework from the most recent episode of Mad at Dad, I’ll be listening to Bowie’s Diamond Dogs top to bottom with headphones. My assertion is that it isn’t better than the Mick Ronson era albums of the early 70s, Michael Butler’s is that it is superior. We shall see. Also on:Facebook Twitter

Zine Me Up

Hey Internet, does anyone know of a place where I can just send some money and get back a mixed selection of zines and/or minicomics? I’m interested in sampling some of each but starting from scratch title by title seems like an exhausting proposition. Also on:Facebook Twitter

New Iron Maiden Album

I have never bought an Iron Maiden album in my life, but I think Michael Butler is selling me one. Here is his track by track of the album, Part 1 and Part 2. I really love this and in fact where he gave Disk 1 a 5.5 out of 6, I would have given […]

Rude Dude

In the department of “who knew?” I just happened to stumble across the documentary Rude Dude: The Steve Rude Story. It is free for viewing via Amazon Prime. I have never heard of this before but now I have it downloaded for offline viewing. I have a plane trip next week with 3 different legs […]

Slip It In

I just listened to the episode of the Rock and Roll Geek Show where he interviewed Inger Lorre about the rise and fall of her band the Nymphs. He got to the end and said “I’m going to play one more song, I don’t even know what it is.” Following that, I heard the opening […]

SC Comicon

Even though in recent years Myrtle Beach has not one but two comic conventions (XCon and Myrtle Beach Comicon), I have been keeping an eye on SC Comicon in Greenville. Last year it was the same weekend as XCon and even so I was tempted to go as it had the far superior guest list. […]

Best Micropayment Joke Ever

From the Surviving Creativity podcast, episode 23: Scott Kurtz: “If I had a nickel for every time Scott McCloud said micropayments would work, micropayments would work.” Also on:Facebook Twitter

Darkness – Barbarians

Yesterday I listened to Michael Butler do a track by track of the new Darkness album Last of Our Kind. I liked it, I like the Darkness in general. This album is something special though. It is somewhere between a theme album and a rock opera. What do you suppose the theme would be? Well, […]

No Balticon in 2015

As much as I’d like to go to Balticon this year, yet again it is not happening. There is always next year (my rallying cry since 2011.) Have the fun for me! Also on:Facebook Twitter

Game of Thrones Game for Free

I bought the Telltale Games app of the Game of Thrones game a month ago. Now and for a limited time, that game is free on various platforms. I’m still early in Episode 1, and am considering just going ahead and getting the season pass while it is on sale for 25% off. I wish […]

Scott Sigler 10 Year Anniversary

Today is Scott Sigler’s 10th anniversary since he entered the new media world, podcasting and giving away his fiction. It’s worked for him, and he is celebrating with a special deal. For TODAY ONLY – which is code for “don’t dawdle” – he is giving away 10 ebooks for his 10th anniversary. This is all […]

Soaking in Game of Thrones

I’ve spent since Thanksgiving reading A Song of Ice and Fire. I finished Storm of Swords and A Feast for Crows and now I’m a third of the way through A Dance with Dragons. Three books in 4 or 5 months is pretty good for me in recent years. However when you consider this is […]

Sonic Subversion on Radio Valencia

Back in January, my friend Michael Butler was a guest on Sonic Subversion, a program on Radio Valencia. I’m finally getting around to listening it today. I heard my own name mentioned in the first few minutes, so I think that counts as a great show. Rock on! Also on:Facebook Twitter
