Another weekend gone another week ahead…come on Thanksgiving!

Thanks for stopping by the old Mother Ship everybody.  Well it’s starting to feel like winter which is great.  I should specify it’s feeling like Los Angeles winter which is different than winter in other places.

It’s about sixty degrees outside, I’m wearing a hoodie, sipping some miso soup from my R2D2 mug and thinking about turning the heat on.  Brrr.

I’m still on my diet and have lost just under 9 pounds, I shall continue the diet indefinitely as I feel great.  However, Thanksgiving is upon us and all bets are off for that week alone.  Shit, is going to get Kraxy!

Yeah that’s Crazy with a K and a X, that’s just how Kraxy it’s gonna get.

Because Thanksgiving may be awesome, but the day after, the day after Thanksgiving when the leftovers have been soaking up the others flavor for two days, well that’s just magical.

Until then I shall remain ever vigilant and eat stuff like this:

20151019_132424 (576x1024)This is an egg white scramble with spinach, bok choy and yellow peppers.  I threw in one actual egg for some flavor along with the egg whites because I can only take so much.

But it is filling and pretty tasty.

Now let’s get on with the shenanigans.  This week starts my three part series opining on the fruitless war raging between 3rd wave feminists, MRAs and MGTOWers.

Oh yes it’s as ridiculous as it sounds.  You can read this weeks post on feminism at Reluctant Joy http://bit.ly/rljywp

Right now streaming over on Podbean and iTunes it’s the post Halloween spooktacular podcast.  There’s a brand new episode Wednesday but why not catch up now http://bit.ly/1KOLDsH

I have a brand new collection of short stories available for free if you have kindle unlimited.  Also as Christmas is fast coming upon us why not pick up my novel The Geek for that miscreant in your life who likes to read.  Here’s a link to my amazon author page with some hopefully humorous ramblings on it http://amzn.to/1MwzPG6

And don’t forget to follow and like me on facebook http://bit.ly/fnbrjwp and twitter http://bit.ly/1YIWqZA

Well I hope everyone has a great day and that you come back Wednesday for updates.

best,

Jonathan

Welcome to the midweek update

Hey Everybody thanks for stopping by.

I’m always pleasantly surprised when I check the stats page and find new and consistent visitors/readers/listeners from places I’d never expect to get them from.  So all you folks from France, Brazil, India, Saudi Arabia and New Zealand thanks for coming back.  Of course everyone is welcome and I’m very happy that my readership and listening audience is incredibly diverse.  Next week just for fun I’ll post the list of countries that my readers and listeners come from so we can all bask in this great global community.

Up on Reluctant Joy there’s a cool little short story I wrote called Night Mage.  I’ve been getting some really nice feedback on it and I’ll be launching it in January as a kindle serial since it’s proven so popular, and it’s an absolute hoot to write.  http://bit.ly/rljywp

There’s a brand new podcast up over on stuff & stuff.  This week’s episode is a very short one.  Nobody could play with me this week so I”m riding solo.  I basically go on a caffeine induced rant for a half hour.  Mainly I talk about the Anthony Jeselnik special on Netflix and why I think it’s more than just a comedy special.  You can listen to Stuff & Stuff on iTunes or on Podbean here http://bit.ly/1KOLDsH

Of course don’t forget to like and follow me on facebook, because I have really low self esteem and your love matters http://bit.ly/fnbrjwp

You might think it’s nearly impossible to make a complete idiot out of yourself when you only have 140 characters to do it in, well I make being an idiot look easy.  Don’t believe me? Then follow me on twitter and see for yourself http://bit.ly/1YIWqZA

Of course no post is complete without me flogging my pulp novel The Geek.  Available as an ebook everywhere ebooks are sold and as a paperback on Amazon.  If you’re unsure of what to get the sociopath in your life for Christmas, Hannukah or Festivus, trust me, The Geek is perfect.  http://amzn.to/1JUFjtH

Saturday is Halloween so everybody have fun and be safe.  I’ll be nerding it up at my friend Tyler’s costume party so I’m looking forward to that.

Again I want to thank my returning visitors and my new ones for stopping by and I hope you continue to find my BS amusing.

Take care all, have a great Halloween and I’ll see you Monday.

Best,

Jonathan

Here we go again, another Monday and not nearly enough coffee!

Man, another seven day work week looms before me and there seems no end in sight for the foreseeable future.  I’m sucking down my third cup of coffee and considering a fourth.

I hope you all had a great weekend and that you have a fun week in front of you.

I’m not much for horror writing but since we’re heading into Halloween I’ll be posting some fantasy stories on Reluctant Joy.  This week I’ve posted a sweet little story called D’jinn and I hope you enjoy it. http://bit.ly/rljywp

Currently streaming over on podbean and iTunes I’m talking about Sasha Grey, Screaming Females, Dengue Fever and why you should never go to Buffalo Wild Wings on the Stuff & Stuff podcast http://bit.ly/1KOLDsH

The fine folks over at TV Campfire made the mistake of having me back on as a guest and that’s currently streaming here if you’re curious http://bit.ly/1G1TxwV

Of course you should also buy my pulp novel The Geek available here in paperback http://amzn.to/1JUFjtH it’s also available as an ebook there as well as iTunes.

Well I’ll be back on Wednesday with the midweek update but in the meantime follow me on facebook http://bit.ly/fnbrjwp and of course twitter http://bit.ly/1YIWqZA

Okie doke have a great day everybody and I’ll see you Wednesday.

Best,

Jonathan

Post no apocalypse update. Yay?

Well it’s Wednesday and the blood moon apocalypse never showed.  That’s the problem with doomsday prophecies.  No one’s ever right about them and if they were it’s really hard to brag about being right while defending yourself against the undead, UN Soldiers, Satan’s Army or whatever BS you said was going to happen.

On the plus side there is new stuff to be had.

Over on reluctant joy this week it’s a second free excerpt of my pulp novel The Geek available for your reading pleasure here: http://bit.ly/rljywp

If you like what you read go ahead and scroll down and read the first few chapters from last week that I posted and if you like that, then why not head on over to Amazon and pick up a copy.  It’s available in paperback and ebook from amazon.com and as an ebook on iTunes.  Here’s a handy link http://amzn.to/1JUFjtH

On iTunes if you search The Geek it’s like the second or third thing to come up.

Over on Tumble and Drift this week there’s another micro-story called Birth which I think you’ll enjoy. Here’s a link to that http://bit.ly/tadsff

Fresh out of the oven there’s a new episode of Stuff n Stuff streaming with my buddy Tyler about various nerdy things.  We also touch on politics, the Pope, debate the best fast food burger in Los Angeles and then Tyler spends the last 15 minutes or so sharing with me what it’s like living with autism.  Which I thought was very cool of him and also informative.

What?  Oh a link?  Sure here ya go http://bit.ly/1KOLDsH and like everything else in the world it too is available on iTunes.

Want to be offended, amused and bamboozled 140 characters at a time, well I can hook you up on the twitters and what nots http://bit.ly/1YIWqZA

And feel free to like and follow my facebook shenanigans here http://on.fb.me/1NX6vtH

I’m pretty excited about tomorrow night.  Not for professional reasons but because tomorrow is October 1st.  And that is awesome because my friends and I are heading into the city to experience the magic that is the Rifftrax crew work their mojo on the greatest bad movie of all time Miami Connection.

The RiffTrax crew are the mad genius’s behind Mystery Science Theatre 3000 a very awesome show that I still enjoy.

So needless to say Thursday night is going to be epic.

Unless of course there’s an apocalypse between now and then in which case, OHMYGOD!  We’re  in hell!  Is that Satan!? Zombies! Marauding gangs of syphilitic rock band roadies are terrorizing the country side! I’m on Fire and being eaten alive by mutant alien buffet seekers! I only have two bars on my cell phone! Aghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!

But I’ll probably just see you all Monday, have a great rest of the week and weekend everybody.

Jonathan

Oh an look here’s the cover of my book

Happy Monday!

Well howdy everybody.

There’s a ton of stuff going on around Fort Geek this week and I certainly appreciate you all stopping by.

This week on Reluctant Joy I’m talking about tolerance, fighting the good fight, fat shaming and the insane world of the overly politically correct social justice warrior, available here http://www.reluctantjoy.com

Over on Tumble and Drift I am beginning to tell Micro-stories and the first one is up this week and available here http://www.bit.ly/tadsff

The fine folks over on TV Campfire had me on as a guest and if you’re in the mood for some passionate talk about TV you should check it out here http://bit.ly/1NiK4BL

Of course there’s always fun stuff going on at my facebook page and I highly encourage you to like and follow my stupidity there at http://www.bit.ly/fnbrjwp

Well it’s another glorious week of whoring myself out.

Hey everybody,

I hope everyone had a nice weekend and that you’re all girding yourselves for the grueling week ahead of you.

But hey, not to fear I’ve got lots of things to distract you and hopefully lessen your productivity so you can stick it to “The Man”, unless of course you are “The Man” in which case I have bad news for your productivity outlook.

Over on Reluctant Joy I’m waxing less than poetically about the average life of a writer in the 21st century.  You can find that here http://www.bit.ly/rljywp

Over on Tumble and Drift it’s part 2 of my short story D’jinn. It’s a sweet little story about the friendship between a human and genie and kind of caught me off guard because I don’t usually write sweet stories.  Snarky, violent and weird sure, but sweet came right out of nowhere.  Part 1 of course is available and you should read that first.  There’s also quite a number of other stories on there but check out D’jinn I think you’ll like it.  http://www.bit.ly/tadsff

This Wednesday episode 2 of my podcast Stuff & Stuff will be available.  If you haven’t listened to episode 1 yet go ahead and give it a go.  In episode 1 I’m talking with my buddy Rob Palmer about the state of the entertainment industry, independent film and a bunch of random stuff. This Wednesday I have a nice little chat with Video Game designer Tyler Uslan about indie gaming and of course stuff. It’s available on podbean and iTunes, so yay for me.  http://stuffnstuff.podbean.com/

And on facebook there’s absolutely nothing productive goin on, as usual but you should like and follow me because I have self esteem issues and I don’t think anyone wants to take responsibility for me going on another shame spiral where I eat six jumbo bags of powdered donettes.  So on your head be it.  http://www.bit.ly/fnbrjwp

And why not follow me on twitter I shall lead you to the promised land, probably not but hey you might as well, I always follow back unless your a bot or trying to sell me followers, if I wanted to buy followers I’d have way more than I do I’m at  @Pron_Coktail on twitter.

And after a fairly serious hiccup my novel The Geek is being fixed and will be back on and available at amazon in a couple weeks in paperback and of course ebook.

Anyhoo, you should follow this blog also and join my mailing list so you can be kept up to date on upcoming giveaways, contests and general information regarding various shenanigans.

I hope you all have a nice day and a great week.

Best,

Jonathan
