The Good, The Bad & The Ugly (pt. 1 – Downtown)

It’s been a while since I’ve written anything about my strip club days. I have so much material, but alas, a lot of it is best in spoken, rather than written word. I want to find an illustrator who can take my voice recordings of stories and illustrate them for a YouTube video series. I’ve also given thought to a podcast, but I really like the idea of illustrated videos, in a style almost like Blank on Blank. I even have a clever title for my series, borrowing from the…

So Over 2016

2016 – Just stop. For the love of god, just stop!   I’m almost positive I’m not the only one out there done with this shitstorm year of 2016, with all of its losses and heartache. What’s with the whole Gen-X icons dying off this past year?

  Yesterday, I took a drive early evening with the windows down and music up. It was such a beautiful night; warm air with all the wonderful smells of summer combining into a swirl of memories for me. Isn’t it funny how scents have the power to transport you to another time? I drove to the spot I used to go and sit alone, and sometimes with you, to think and be at peace. I parked my car and made my way to the steps. I sat and watched the sun…

Time Machines and Emotional Roller Coasters

Have you ever thought back to some of the stupid things you’ve done in your past and wanted a do-over? Yeah, me too. If only there were such things as a time machine or even Doctor Who’s TARDIS. But of course there isn’t – it’s all fiction, even though I’d like to believe The Doctor is somewhere out there doing his whole wibbly wobbly timey wimey thing. I’ve been in a stage of downsizing my material possessions and simplifying for the past few years – it’s just stuff after all….
