Good call. Maybe they should also tie a rope around a cinder black and then their ankles then throw the cinder block off the tallest bridge they can find into the deepest part of the waters. That way the market can lift them up.

REJECTAMATED!

Been a while since I've had the chance to post one of these.

Dear Charles Terhune,
Thanks for your query.
As to your material I'm afraid I will be passing -- I'm just not drawn
strongly enough to the concept of your story to feel that I'd be the
right agent for the project. I realize it is difficult to make an
assessment from a query; nevertheless please know that I give serious
attention to every letter, outline, and writing sample I receive.
Sorry I couldn't give you a more positive reply. Thanks for thinking
of me, though, and best of luck in your search for representation.
Sincerely,
Jennifer Jackson

Ah well. First of many perhaps. Guess this means Tribal Malfunctions is out there and getting eyes on it. Until hell won't have it!

We Are Not Trump Volume One | We Are Not Trump

I cannot tell you how proud I am to be included in this very very very cool compilation All proceeds go to the ACLU. My song is #40 "March of The Deplorables." Guess what it's about?

There are soo many good tracks on this it's not even funny. So give it a listen then donate what you can to download your copy. Because we are not Trump's America.

 

 

"TRIBAL MALFUNCTIONS: EPISODE 2: AGE OF DRONES"

Hey, yo! It's Episode 2! On today's episode it's Chapter 2 of Tribal Malfunctions! Make sure you're caught up to date before you listen.

EPISODE 2 is about a guy and his garage...

EPISODE 2 is about a guy and his garage...

 

A word or two about this podcast if I may:

  1. It's got cussing. A decent amount of cussing. Not Blue Velvet, Sopranos, Midnight Run or Touched by An Angel level cussing but it's up there. You've been forewarned.
  2. Accents: I do some accents in this. It's a multicultural world in the book and people are form all over. I do them not to belittle or make fun of other cultures but to flesh out the world. It sounds ridiculous if you don't. I'm not being jingoistic or patronizing when I do them. I've loved the diverse sounds of all human tongues since I was a kid and I'm not going to stop now.
  3. I'm really digging doing this! I hope you like it.
  4. All the music used is mine! Specifically Cathode Ray Tube although I might sneak in a few Brittney Sparse songs here and there. You can find all the music listed on the CRT discography page or just go to my Bandcamp page where there's a ton of it there as well. Here's a list of the songs played in today's episode:
    1. "Nothing Speacial" (Tribal Malfunctions theme song)
    2. "Jetpax For All (plays during the Travelogue)
    3. Hollow Days/Ringing Nights (heard during the Heavyboys at the T segments)
  5. The Travelogues will appear at the beginning of each episode. These are meant to flesh out the world and provide some insight into aspects of the novel as it progresses. They were fun to write and I think it's a nicer way to do some exposition than someone telling all this crap over a beer.

Well, that about does it. Dig in and listen up. See you next week for Episode 3/Chapter 3!

TRIBAL MALFUNCTIONS PODCAST DEBUT EPISODE!!!

Hello and welcome to this exciting plog boast! Wherein I tell you that I'm going to be releasing weekly episodes of me reading my snazzadicce unpublished but oh so publishable cyberpunk novel TRIBAL MALFUNCTIONS!

The first installment is - surprise! - Chapter 1: The Ballad of FuturePop. Here we meet the young thug FuturePop in his element as he prepares to go to battle in the 21st century gang style.

It's read by me. All the music is by me - Cathode Ray Tube to be exact. I think you'll dig it. So dig in!

 

 

48 YEARS OF EXILE ON EARTH COMPLETED: 52 MORE TO GO.

I celebrated my 48th birthday yesterday by watching bad Christmas movies and eating an enormous brunch that lasted me until about 7PM.

I plan to spend the next year rewriting my neural cortex, reformatting the hardware and in general upgrading the basic structure. We'll see how that goes. So far, though, I think my new tailored wardrobe is smashing, don't you?
