The Ghost of Stuff N Stuff

Hidely Hodely Space Cowboys and Cowgirls.  Thanks for cycling through the air lock and paying the old mothership a visit.

The bro-host and I are currently recording podcasts for the new show The Perilous Podcast which will begin airing in late December/early January so I appreciate the patience.

However, we have both stumbled upon a ridiculous app called Candid which has turned us both into amazing, trolling, shitlords.  We were so amused we felt the need to record a spontaneous episode of Stuff n Stuff.

This was actually recorded a few weeks ago but I’ve been so busy I spaced and forgot to upload it until today.

We say and do a lot of terrible things we don’t mean so do try to lighten up and enjoy, and make sure to check your triggering at the door.  We set out in this podcast to be as extreme as possible to simply show how ridiculously fun and offensive this app can be for letting off steam and saying things you don’t mean.

Here’s a link to the podbean site and it should be on iTunes within a day or so. http://bit.ly/1KOLDsH

I’ll probably be running a series of micro stories over the next few weeks since I get a lot of dm’s on twitter from readers who really enjoy them.

In the meantime here are some handy dandy links for everyone:

Follow me and I’ll follow back, unless you’re a porn bot.  Seriously stop it already porn bots.

If you’re in Los Angeles or coming to Los Angeles and forgot to bring a good book to read head on over to Skylight Books at 1818 North Vermont Ave in Los Angeles (90027).  They’re a really cool independent bookstore that supports local writers like me by carrying their books.

If you like a great book, but don’t know what you’re in the mood for the staff is really knowledgeable.  They have turned me onto some really great reads over the years.

If you don’t like great books, just go in and purchase my book The Geek.

Okay more to come next week.

I hope everybody has a great rest of the week and a fun weekend.

Best,

Jonathan

 

The unbearable likeness of being Micro

Hey All,

As usual thanks for stopping by.  After literally tens of requests for some more micro stories that’s exactly what I’m gonna do.  So for around the next seven weeks I’ll be posting micro stories.

My goal with these stories is of course to attempt to tell a complete story in a paragraph or two.  However, they will also collectively tell one whole story…hopefully.

Once I’ve posted them as individual stories I’ll do one final post of all of them together so that the full story is laid out.

The two big, key words to keep in mind here are attempt and hopefully.

All the links to my other useless crapola will be after the story.  Hope you guys like it.

Best,

Jonathan

SOLACE

The wooden gate creaked only slightly when he opened it.

The smell of the blossoms was both intoxicating and relaxing.

For the first time in a long time he felt safe.

With every step toward the door, the shadows of his past fell further behind him.

The singular lamppost, glowing a soft yellow in the moonlight welcomed him home.

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
