New publication! “My 30th” (a literary poem)

My latest published work (“My 30th”) can be found in the new poetry anthology called The Poetic Bond, edited by Trevor Maynard. Please purchase a copy and support all the poets who contributed to this creative work.

“The purpose in putting together this anthology is to harness poetry through social media and to engage actively in sharing poetry with other poets and bringing poetry to the general public. This collection of poems is the work of a group of poets connected through the global professional networking website LinkedIn.com, and in particular, but not exclusively, the LinkedIn group called, “Poetry, Review and Discuss.””

New Photography Albums Coming

My first three photography albums are now available for viewing under “Visual” while two of them have also been in into surreal slideshows with music (called Grit and Beauty, respectively) under “Motion.” Alternatively, you can view them on my YouTube channel.

Also take a look at my first video poem, The Age of Decline.

New photography albums coming before the end of the year. Stay tuned! I’m including samples from an album in progress called Ruminations in Sand.




A Few Updates

WANTED: JOB & ROOF

While apartment & job hunting in Los Angeles, I am lining up creative projects on the side, preferrably paid. In addition to having two short works in upcoming print publications, I have a few short scripts in development, one directing project coming up, and looking for more! (Especially directing gigs.)

As for a day job, if you know anyone seeking a talented, reliable individual with a vast array of skills and adaptability, let me know. I’m looking. I can do administrative, IT, writing/filmmaking, social media, marketing, etc.

NEW PHOTOS

I also whipped up a few self-portraits with an old wide-angle point and click and Adobe Lightroom 3.3. What do you think?

NEW PERSONA

Take a look at my new page for eDirt, a new persona I’m developing for the website Dirt.com, where I am a regular “Dirtributor.”

Diary of the Unemployed Writer: Part 1

Day 1 of Unemployment: Seeking meaningless tasks to fill my time. Stuck finger in power socket. REVISED: Seeking meaningless, PAINLESS tasks to fill my time.

Day 2 of Unemployment: Rediscovered the ancient art of the paper toss, although in prehistoric times it was know simply as rock toss. Since the paper toss is a relative of the spitball, what were prehistoric spitwads like?

Day 3 of Unemployment: Attempted the colossal task of constructing the Taj Mahal out of my 12-month old’s graham crackers. Upon realizing that I didn’t actually know what the Taj Mahal looked like, I ate the crackers. Mission accomplished.

the internets are in your brain, stealing your freedumz

Back in the day the Internet consisted of two parts: (1) porn, and (2) advertisements for porn. People would say they used the Internet for “research” but we know they were masturbating to Internet porn.

Then along came a little website called MySpace Facebook (“facebook” or “fb”), knocking #2 off its pedestal, so that the Internet internets became one part porn and one part Facebook fb. With the top contender knocked down a notch, Google swooped in and took over the other constituent, again transforming the internets into two new parts: (1) Google, and (2) fb.

“What about lolcats?” you ask, or, “WHAT ABOUT MY FRIKKIN PRON??!!!11” Porn Pron is now found via Google using such tools as “Google Image Search” or “Google Video Search” and thus pron is now a subsidiary of Google. Lolcats remain more prolific than ever, but only through their conduits, Google and fb. No one can deny the compelling awesomeness of Lolcats, pron, fb and Google combined, which is why we invented smartphones, so that we could increasingly ignore reality in favor of lolcats, anywhere in the world, 24/7. Which leads us to this conclusory, if not rhetorical, question: What did people do before lolcats?
