NEW AND IMPROVED FOR 2019! February 05 2019
I see by the dates on this blog that I haven't exactly been visiting the site as frequently as I might. So here's something a little more up to date, the skinny on what I've been up to, the true gen. (This is a term that came back with soldiers returning from World War I, meaning verifiable intelligence, but more colloquially referring to cool gossip.)
Let's see, since the last posting I wrote a screenplay and music for a dark musical, Wrongside Bob, and tried raising money to get it produced, but the money end kind of fizzled. So Wrongside Bob went to the back burner, though I hope to get back to it some day. Maybe as a stage musical.
I wrote a reincarnation thriller novel, Incarnate, which was kind of wonderfully scary, and I hope to turn that into a screenplay as well.
I made a short film, Curse of the Orange Rug, a Twilight Zoney political parody about an insane clown who kidnaps our hapless heroes in a big old house. You can see it HERE, as well as two music videos from the Wrongside Bob film/CD.
I wrote a Civil War novel, Matamoros, in the early stages of getting published.
My latest CD is out now, The meaning of Life - folksongs and Americana about facing the last act of our lives, looking back, looking ahead, looking within.
And I hope to launch a Patreon page soon, replete with old writings, new writings, music, and me telling the stories of my strange life on video.
That's all for now. More to come. News at 11.
