Sunday Songs to Spark the Spirit and Summon the Moves of the Dance

If you’re hatin’ on the latest music phenom known as Billie Eilish because you think her fame is a result of entitlement and nepotism in the entertainment industry — Seriously, who had ever heard of the uniquely-styled seventeen-year-old’s low-level acting parents or whatever their L.A. entertainment gigs are before she and her brother became famous? And I’m still not even sure what her brother became famous for. — like so many are, then I sure hope you’re voting in the 2020 presidential election because we have President The Donald’s highly entitled child and child-in-law prancing all around our pretty but petulant planet behaving as presidential advisors and high-level diplomats who…

Hold on.

Deep breath…

Let’s get back to music before it gets all politically ugly up in here.

In Honor of a Drunk Larry Kudlow

Well, to be honest, King of Greenland, Lord Protector sounds a bit snockered as well…

Nothing wrong with that I suppose…

Which is why I am dedicating our weekly Sunday Song post to our wild and crazy guy of a White House Economic advisor Larry for partying all night long and still staying committed to his task of boldly, if not drunkenly, representing the White House on all the Sunday talking head shows this morning.

But I hope President The Donald doesn’t get too upset by it because we all know he has a drinking problem of his own…

A Poem Illicit by Cindy Knoke

The popular photographer and poet Cindy Knoke wrote us a poem in response to our ongoing flash fiction contest (which ends at midnight tonight so go vote for your favorite story!). Unfortunately, per the fine print of the contest rules, only flash fiction responses meeting the stated criteria will be accepted. All other responses are to be deleted. Yeah, I get down like that. However, reading Cindy’s poem felt to me like listening to a Tom Waits song and if anyone knows me they know I have a huge man crush on Tom. No way I could abandon her poem to a trash can death. So instead I share it here with you where it can shimmy and shake for all eternity as a special supplement to our weekly Sunday Song to Spark the Spirit and Summon the Moves of the Dance…

Sunday Songs to Spark the Spirit and Summon the Moves of the Dance

So for the past two months I’ve been stuck within the tedious and grinding and painful first phase of the developmental process for my next book (while I can’t say the first phase is my favorite phase of the entire book development process — to me the entire process of developing a book is tedious and grinding and painful — I can at least say it is the least tedious and grinding and painful of them all) when it recently suddenly dawned upon me that I am not yet ready to let go of the last book I that tediously and grindingly and painfully developed…

Which of course is The Good Kill, thank you very much.

At first I tried to fight through the desire to not let it go but it wasn’t working…

A Song to Get You in the Mood for THE GOOD KILL Release Tomorrow

Sean “Big Mac” McKnight, one of my favorite characters from The Good Kill, is a huge Slayer fan; therefore, in his honor and in honor of the book’s release tomorrow, it is Slayer’s “Repentless, — a term which, coincidentally, could also be the novel’s theme — that we shall proceed to rock it out to. . .

The Spirit of What Remains

While I’ve given up completely on superhero movies, ugh, especially Marvels’, UGH!, I am still a fan of the superhero genre in spirit and I have very fond memories of as a child riding my bike to the local grocery store and spending all the allowance I had just received on the latest Batman, Superman, and Spiderman comic books and, at a penny a piece, a handful of Bazooka bubblegum with its own little Bazooka Joe comic strip on the inside of the wrappers.
