Okay let’s take a breath…

Hey All,

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.

Jonathan

Meet Your New Planetary Protection Officer.

Hey All,

I hope everyone had a good and productive week and that you have fun plans for the weekend.

So by now I’m sure most of you have heard of the Planetary Protection Officer position at NASA that is currently vacant.  If you’re unfamiliar with it, below is the link to USAJOBS which has the ad there and of course you can apply online if you meet the requirements…also spelled out in the ad.

Here’s the link:

https://www.usajobs.gov/GetJob/ViewDetails/474414000/

Of course when we hear a job title like “Planetary Protection Officer” that sounds really exciting and why wouldn’t it be.  I like to think I am a man of action and able to rise to the occasion so I followed the appropriate link and sent the following email to NASA and officially threw my hat into the ring for this exciting position.

I’m not trying to boast, but I really think I have a shot.

Below is the letter in full that I sent:

Dear Sir/Madam/Jedi/Starfleet Officer/Protocol Droid and/or Lizard Snake Man/Woman thing,

I am officially applying for the open position of Planetary Protection Officer. I feel I meet all the requirements and also bring some unique talents to the table that go above and beyond what you are looking for.

Firstly I do have a lot of engineering expertise. Not only am I a certified Level 30 Dungeon Master, I have created over 2000 dungeons and campaigns during my career and have drawn most of those on graph paper with both ruler and compass, in pen! That’s right Pen!

I have planned, organized and built most of the spaceships in the Star Wars Lego collection including the Millennium Falcon. Please bear in mind I am talking about the Millennium Falcon that is comprised of 5,195 pieces, not that amateur hour crap most people build.

Secondly in terms of planetary protection and space program planning expertise, I’ve got that covered in spades. I have played through the entire Mass Effect Series, Doom and am fluent and familiar with both Kerbal Space Program and the old Missile Command Game that a I play through my emulator. Also, let’s not forget the aforementioned 5,195 piece Millennium Falcon I built, on my own!

In regards to diplomacy I feel confident in saying that I am incredibly diplomatic and easy to get along with. I have negotiated various peace agreements amongst the members of my Dungeons and Dragons group, not only during campaign but out of campaign as well.

And if you think it’s easy getting a Dwarven Cleric and a half Orc Ranger to see eye to eye on the do’s and don’ts of dungeon exploration, then you give it a shot pal.

I do not have a degree in physical science, but I do have a degree in physical education.

Okay I didn’t graduate but I bet I can do more jumping jacks than you and I think that should go into my plus column.

I have also spent years watching youtube videos about aliens, ufos, tiny animals eating tiny burritos (that’s gonna come in handy trust me) and have even commanded my own starship in Star Trek Online. That is not a paid plug, but it’s a great game.

I am also fluent in Esperanto, Klingon and can get by in Spanish as long as I’m ordering a coke.

Now, I do think it would be fair to state what I think are my weaknesses. Should we come into actual contact with Aliens I think I’d be pretty good at handling that, though it might be a good idea to keep some adult diapers handy just in case. If they’re friendly we’d be good to go. However, any aliens bent on domination may present a problem. I am an avowed coward and honestly think I’d probably turn tail and betray humanity to our new overlords at the first sign of trouble, this would most likely happen after I put on a clean diaper.

I think that pretty much sums it up. I look forward to hearing back from you and serving my country, the planet and humanity.

Again, let’s not forget that whole 5,195 piece Millennium Falcon thing.

Klaatu Barada Nikto,

Jonathan Latt

I encourage everyone who is interested to apply for the job, but let’s be honest, I’ve probably got this sewn up at this point.

Anyhoodledoodle, on other fronts there’s a brand new podcast up today over on podbean and iTunes for The Perilous Podcast.  This week we’re talking about the infamous Black Dahlia murder.  It’s a bit sad, but very interesting.

Over on the YouTube channel we’re airing the video version of last week’s podcast all about the Men In Black.

All my organic, non gmo, locally sourced links are below.

I hope everyone has a great weekend and a productive week.  See y’all next Friday.

Best,

Jonathan Latt

Two For The Price Of Two!

Hi again, it’s me again.

Real quick if you just can’t get enough of me rambling on and on for no good reason I had the pleasure of being a guest on two podcasts this week.

Those lovely fellows Ben and Keith who are The Two Gay Geeks had me back on their podcast this week.

We talk about everything from Brazilian Jiu Jitsu to what I’ve got coming up next year and beyond as well as my frustrations on why nobody has done a Blake’s 7 reboot yet.

You can listen to that on their website or iTunes.  The link to their website is here:

http://tggeeks.com/blog/2017/08/07/tg-geeks-webcast-episode-129/

Also I had the chance to sit down with the fine folks from FanBase Press for their Fanbase weekly podcast, also available on iTunes or their website.

Again, here’s the link to their website:

Hey all let’s go to the base.

Hey everybody,

My shocking popularity continues this week on the fanbase weekly podcast.

I had the honor of sitting down with Barbra and Bryant Dillon as well as Clarissa Thorne and Drew Siragusa to talk about a ton of fun stuff.

Plus I do think Fanbase Weekly may have the best theme song I’ve heard in a long, long time.

If you’re interested in hearing four intelligent folks and one moron talk about a bunch of stuff from the Karate Kid sequel to NASA check it out.
