Well It’s finally here!

Happy Monday everybody.

I hope you all got to see the new Star Wars movie this weekend.  I actually didn’t get a chance to see it but will be seeing it Wednesday, so I’m a little disappointed that I missed the hullabaloo of opening weekend but it may be best.

I’m a huge fan but I heard tons of people got dressed up to go see the film.  While that’s totally awesome, I think trying to watch Star Wars while sitting behind nine guys dressed like Darth Vader would probably annoy the crap out of me.

This will be the only post this week as I have tons of family and friends doing annoying things like being kind and throwing parties so I’m just gonna indulge in that and I think everyone should do the same.

But I’ll be back Monday and then it’s new years so not sure what’s going on there but starting January 4th I’m back to the usual two updates a week.

In the meantime over on Reluctant Joy I’ve been posting micro-stories the last few weeks.  I’ve posted them all in order, I think you’ll see what I was doing or at least attempting to do if you read them at one time and I really hope you like it http://bit.ly/rljywp

Over on Stuff N Stuff Palmer and I are talking about really important things like how to tell if a donkey is dead or alive, when to leave a wedding and where to find good Chinese food.  http://bit.ly/1KOLDsH

I don’t know if there’s enough time to get a copy of my novel The Geek to you by Christmas but downloads are instantaneous if you don’t need a paperback http://bit.ly/1MAAyZQ

And as I rush off to do Holiday things I leave you with this thought.  It doesn’t really matter if your Christian, Jewish, Muslim, Hindu, Buddhist, Jedi, Sith or Huffle Puff.  It doesn’t matter what you believe or what you celebrate.  Just try to remember we’re all in this together and give the person you pass on the street a smile and wish them Happy Holidays.

Then in January we can all go back to being right pricks to each other.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

Sincerely,

Jonathan

Happy Holidays!

I know some people get mad at that, the all encompassing Happy Holidays thing but well how do I know what religion you are, so this just seems better.

I do usually wish people a merry Christmas when I see them but mainly because it’s force of habit and just seems cheery.  I am not religious and do not adhere to a mainstream religion but I do love this time of year.

Out here in Los Angeles lights have been going up and continue to go up around the city.  It’s a holly jolly time of year and always makes me happy.  The constant flow of ham and cookies doesn’t hurt either.

I hope things are looking cheery in your neck of the woods wherever that may be and that you’re in a happy holiday mood.

Okay I probably got a little carried away there but can’t help it, it’s a fun time of year.

Have you gotten all your shopping done?  Is there a sociopath in your life who likes to read in between planning monumental crime sprees?  Well have I got the book for you.  It’s my novel The Geek and it’s filled with sex, violence, revenge, prostitutes, a transvestite anarchist and an entire house filled with unicorns and pornography.  Now if that doesn’t say “Merry Christmas ya Psycho!” I don’t know what does.

Why don’t you head on over to amazon and pick up a copy for the bat shit crazy person in your life http://amzn.to/1MwzPG6

Are you a book nerd like me?  Do you like hanging with other book nerds?  Well head on over to goodreads and we’ll hang out together http://bit.ly/1XpMF4k

Over on the podcast my buddy Mike and I are talking about lots of stuff from infrastructure to SJWs, gun rights and more, lot’s of light hearted conversation to get you through the holidays http://bit.ly/1KOLDsH

Over on Reluctant Joy there’s a new micro-story up called SUN and continues the theme http://bit.ly/rljywp

Wanna follow me on twitter?  Course ya do http://bit.ly/1YIWqZA

Facebook?  I can hook you up http://bit.ly/fnbrjwp

And hey, I really want to thank you for stopping by and hope you’re having a great holiday season whatever you celebrate.

I’ll be back Wednesday with new stuff!

Best,

Jonathan

Midweek update

Hey folks,

Thanks for stopping by.  Really crazy around here so this one is going to have to be quick.

There’s a fresh new podcast up on Stuff & Stuff.  My friend Mike stops by for the first time and we actually had a rather intellectual conversation.  I know, I’m shocked too http://bit.ly/1KOLDsH

Over on Reluctant Joy there’s a new micro story called WATER as I stick to the esoterica theme of the current posts http://bit.ly/rljywp

Tweets are happening all the time, all around us here http://bit.ly/1YIWqZA

And some darn solid facebooking http://bit.ly/fnbrjwp

Why not check out my amazon page and pick up a copy of my novel or short story collection, plus I’m pretty proud of my bio http://amzn.to/1MwzPG6

Plus there’s goodreads, it’s like facebook for book nerds and it’s a whole lot of fun http://bit.ly/1XpMF4k

Okay sorry for making this so quick, but more Monday.  Have a great rest of the week and super awesome weekend.

Best,

Jonathan

Happy Monday, let’s do this!

Hello Again and welcome back to the mother ship.

I’ve been obsessing over some new music this weekend.  Currently I’ve got Adele’s and Cold Play’s new albums on heavy rotation and man I am just a grooving fool.

Annie Lennox will probably always be my favorite vocalist, there’s something about that voice that gives me goose bumps every time I hear it, but Adele is inching up day by day, year by year.  That lady is just really something.  I highly recommend you check that out.

Cold Play gets a lot of shit from people, I don’t know why I think they’re awesome and I don’t care what you think, it’s damn good stuff.

But if you’re in the mood for some indie stuff and you want more unsolicited recommendations from someone you don’t know, with absolutely no qualifications I have two; The Screaming Females and Dengue Fever are both awesome and should be shoved into your Spotify or whatever you use to listen.  I use cds because I’m old and that’s how I roll.

Have you stopped by my amazon page to waste time and possibly pick up a copy of my novel or short story collection yet?  Well why not?  I mean it’s not like you’re not going to end up on amazon eventually for some reason.  You know it’s not just a site to pick up bulk candy bars and sexual lubricants, it’s got books too, lot’s of them and two of them are mine.

http://amzn.to/1MwzPG6

My novel The Geek has even been professionally reviewed and that really insightful person gave it five out of five stars.  No I did not have to perform any sexual favors.  Yes I would have considered it.

http://bit.ly/1MAAyZQ

Over on Reluctant Joy I’m continuing my esoteric themed micro story extravaganza today it’s FIRE http://bit.ly/rljywp

Over on the podcast I’m hanging with my buddy Tyler and his pal Josh and we are really getting our nerd on so if you’re into that sort of thing why not head over, it don’t cost nothin’ http://bit.ly/1KOLDsH

Tweets?  Of course http://bit.ly/1YIWqZA

Facebook? You bet! http://bit.ly/fnbrjwp

And why not stop by goodreads and check out my page there, I’m happy to answer any questions you have, even ones about math, but I’m pretty sure my answer’s will be wrong with the math questions http://bit.ly/1XpMF4k

I’ve got to skedaddle lots of stuff going on around here but I do want to thank you for stopping by and hope you come back Wednesday for the update.

Take Care,

Jonathan

It’s the midweek update!

Hey All, hope everyone is having a nice week.  The weather is crisp, I’ve still got leftovers from Thanksgiving in my freezer and I’m preparing myself for the next wave of insanity.  That insanity is of course called Christmas.

My Aunt and Uncle always do a traditional, English breakfast on Christmas morning.  It’s your basic, awesome fry up with eggs, stewed tomatoes, beans, mushrooms, nine thousand different types of bangers and of course the most glorious of meats, bacon.

Unfortunately my aunt and uncle are getting on in years and wont be hosting the traditional breakfast this year.  Instead my sister has decided to take up the mantle and host.  This is of course very generous of her to do this, but I am filled with some trepidation and dread about my sister taking over this hallowed tradition.

Not because she’s incapable or a bad host, no, it’s far more potentially disastrous.  You see, my sister is a vegetarian.

There, I said it.

Now I have nothing wrong with vegetarians.  I myself have cut down my consumption of meat dramatically and eat far more protein laden vegetables than I have in the past.  But of course I do eat meat…I’m not  maniac.

But, should a vegetarian be in charge of such a meat-centric holiday occasion?

I don’t know.  I have been told that of course there will be a fine selection of meats, both in tube form and of course those lovely, squiggly, nitrate sticks I hold so dear.

I am currently taking people at their word, and live in hope.  But come December 25th, if any person says to me…”No, it’s tofu, just try it, it tastes just like bacon.”  I’m putting a horse head in their bed while they sleep.

Just sayin’.

Now, let’s get on with the hackery and pluggery.

Have you heard that the Hungry Monster book review gave my novel The Geek five out of five stars in its review?  I know!  Crazy right!?  Well I’m pretty stoked about it, and if you’d like to read the review yourself, check it out here http://bit.ly/1MAAyZQ

Why not check out my amazon author’s page (it’s quite witty) and pick up a copy for yourself in ebook or paperback.  Of course as an ebook it’s available everywhere but for old school paperback head to amazon.

gc

Now that’s a snazzy cover baby!

 

You can also pick up a copy of my kindle exclusive D’jinn and Other Stories, only available on amazon as an ebook and totally free if you have kindle unlimited.  http://amzn.to/1MwzPG6

Over on my blog Reluctant Joy it’s another micro story fitting my theme of esoteric meanderings entitled AIR http://bit.ly/rljywp

Over on Stuff & Stuff my friend Tyler stops by with his buddy Josh and we talk Fallout 4, sex with robots, parenting skills and Tyler reveals his PC over console snobbery. http://bit.ly/1KOLDsH

And now for the usual crap and one new piece.

Follow me on Twitter blahblahblah http://bit.ly/1YIWqZA

Facebook!  It’s like a book, for faces but it’s not a book and you get bombarded with creepy ads related to things you’ve looked at online while away from facebook.  It’s really just Mark Zuckerberg’s way of telling you that he cares and is watching absolutely everything you do online.  If that sort of thing sounds double-plus good to you why not like and follow me there http://bit.ly/fnbrjwp

And hey I’ve even got a goodreads author page now…I think I’m really starting to get the hang of this whole 21st century thing http://bit.ly/1XpMF4k

Well I hope everybody has a great rest of the week and that you enjoy your weekend too.

See you all Monday.

Best,

Jonathan

 

 

 

Back to the grind.

Hey all,

Welcome back to the mother ship.  I hope everyone enjoyed their weekend and that you’re Monday isn’t too mess up.

Well I’m done with all the SJW crapola and moving on.  Over on reluctant joy I’ll be posting some micro-stories. Since they’re only a paragraph I’ll be doing two a week, with new ones on Mondays and Wednesdays. Up first “Earth” http://bit.ly/rljywp

Over on podbean and iTunes Palmer and I are talking our usual nonsense.  Rob makes the mistake of trying to convince me of the value of jewish culture rap (oy!) I explain negative fuck math to him and then we end the podcast with me creating a sex act called The Egg McMuffin and one called the Luke Skywalker.  I give us both homework to come up with more for Wednesdays episode.  So it’s the usual horrible stuff on Stuff n Stuff http://bit.ly/1KOLDsH

Intrigued by this mysterious photo?  Go here for answers http://amzn.to/1MwzPG6

And head on over to like my facebook page http://bit.ly/fnbrjwp or follow me on twitter cuz you know…lulz http://bit.ly/1YIWqZA

Well I hope everyone has a great day and I’ll see you all Wednesday.

Jonathan

20150926_151118

Hey look it’s me looking at you looking at me.  Yeah we just went meta..or inception or whatever, but hey why not check out my author page on amazon for a copy of my novel The Geek or D’jinn and other stories, my short story collection.  http://amzn.to/1MwzPG6

Over on reluctant joy this week it’s my final piece on the Feminist, MRA, MGTOW war http://bit.ly/rljywp

And up on Podbean and iTunes it’s a brand new episode of Stuff n Stuff.  Palmer and I discuss the day his home was raided by the FBI and why it was his brother’s fault.  I explain the math of negative fucks to my dear friend and then we discuss proper masturbation etiquette.  OH don’t look so surprised.  http://bit.ly/1KOLDsH

I give thanks to facebook  http://bit.ly/fnbrjwp and twitter http://bit.ly/1YIWqZA

Well if you are in America or an American living abroad I want to wish you a happy and wonderful thanksgiving.  My your gravy be smooth, your turkey moist and your food baby healthy.  Thanks for all of your support.

To all of my wonderful readers from other parts of the globe who keep coming back to this and my other pages I want to wish you a happy thanksgiving as well.  And I am truly grateful for your continued support.   It really does make me happy to see that I have readers and listeners from so many different countries.

Have a great rest of the week everybody and I’ll see you all Monday.

Sincerely,

Jonathan
