So I think we can all agree it’s been a hell of a week. I’m not going to get into what the President said or who’s right or who’s wrong here.
However, I do think a general metric in how you live your day to day life can be summed up as followed:
If the former head of the KKK thanks you for something you’ve said, you’ve said something horrible. Unless you happen to be the current head of the KKK, in which case…well done ya ignorant, racist bastard.
Angie and I are actually going to be preempting our usual podcast this next Friday and will be airing an “emergency episode” of The Perilous Podcast this Wednesday in which we cover the current shit tsunami and dig deep into the conspiracy behind the alt-right, the far left and what really happened in Charlottesville and why you should actually be way more scared than you already are.
However, in the meantime how’s about a nice way to start your weekend.
Over on The Perilous Podcast site I sit down with Bryant Dillon, co-founder of Fanbase press and fellow writer. We talk about how comic book super heroes are becoming the new pantheon of Gods and it’s far more light hearted and fun than what’s going on now.
On The Perilous Podcast YouTube channel we have the video broadcast of our Black Dahlia podcast from last week, plus other past episodes in video form. So you may want to give that a watch.
As for me I’m getting ready to do a bit of traveling. I’ll be in Denver (I think) in late September for a couple days, followed by a trip to Phoenix in late October and then a jaunt down to Palm Springs in early November, so yay me and my hotel points program.
I’m pretty excited about my novella coming out in January and my new novel set for release in spring of 2018 as well as some other stuff in the works I just can’t talk about right now…but it’s all good.
Look everyone, let’s try to stay calm, maybe even distract ourselves a bit (ain’t nothin’ wrong with that) and enjoy our weekend.
I have a lovely weekend planned as I recoup from my latest Jiu Jitsu injury, including a Tchaikovsky concert this evening, a bit of work tomorrow recording some podcasts followed by a night in and then I’m hoping some video games Sunday followed by a movie before going back to training on Monday.
Plus I scored some great plums at Costco this week so that’s good.
Anyhoo, why not follow the links below for all of your distraction needs. Pick up a copy of my pulp novel The Geek. or maybe just unplug from everything and go for a nice long hike.
But seriously, buy my book first, I don’t see why you wouldn’t. Links for that are below. However if you’re in the Los Angeles area or live in Los Angeles and like supporting independent bookstores why not head into Los Feliz and go to Skylight Books to pick up The Geek in paperback.
Skylight is awesome. They support and promote local and indie authors and it’s a great place to pick up a book and browse. I love their counterculture stuff and they have a great selection of quirky fiction.
Plus it’s right down the street from Fred 62. A great diner with awesome milkshakes, so you can stop by there before or after your trip.
No I am not the owner of Fred 62…but I eat there frequently.
Here’s a link to skylight with their address and hours:
And one for Fred 62, because it’s tasty:
Have a great weekend everybody.
