Percy Jackson and The Lightning Doodie

with 9 comments

It was bad. Other words to describe the experience include: abominable, atrocious, awful, contemptible, criminal, dire, disgraceful, disgusting, execrable, heinous, loathsome, low, malodorous, mean, obnoxious, peccant, putrid, rancid, rank, reprehensible, repulsive, rotten, sad, scandalous, shameful, sickening, stinking, terrible, unfavorable, vile, villainous, wicked, wretched, and wrong. Really, any of those will work. Also, doodie.

If you’ve read the book, I suggest you stay far, far away. If you haven’t read the book, let me spoil one part for you in the hopes that you’ll understand I’m doing it for your own good and to save you money and time and brain cells: you will, in all seriousness, witness teenage kids tripping on drug cookies while a satyr line-dances to Lady Gaga’s “Poker Face.”

Exactly.

‘Cause I am due for a miracle
I’m waiting for a sign
I’ll stare straight into the sun
And I won’t close my eyes
Till I understand or go blind

My Life at the Crossroads

013-Crossroads

Internally, I go through this every single day, and it’s getting pretty tiring. So how about y’all just tell me what to do with my life? I’ll even consider being a professional cabana boy or what-have-you. Just help me find my path. I thank you in advance.

I can hear you calling out
Across the great divide
Right or wrong, there’s a feeling in my heart
I try to follow
But lately I just hide

Recepción a Otro Mundo

with 3 comments

Okay, you caught me…I don’t actually own a mini-cactus, but if I did I’d totally place it next to my alarm clock to create these funny Full House-like situations (this is something Uncle Joey would totally do and you know it).

But yeah, somehow I’ve been oversleeping normal alarm clock and my cell phone alarm, which most people would compare to the sound of seven fire trucks all converging towards the same burning building. Huh, go figure. So, this works…for now, despite those rare mornings where I really have no idea where I am.

Also, feel free to correct my Spanish. I did what I could with it…

QUESTION OF THE DAY: How many alarms does it take to get a hobbit out of bed?

Does the couch pull out?
Are you kissed goodnight?
How is Memphis tonight?
I don’t believe that everybody’s lonely underneath it all.

Things I’ve Named

So, help me out here and tell me all about the inanimate objects you’ve named so I don’t feel like a complete sociopath. Bonus points for truly geeky names. Not that we’re keeping score or anything, no.

I’ve become just like a terrible mess
Searching the lines in my face for
Something more beautiful than is there
But the crowds keep me coming back
Cheering

Don’t Know What’s Inside the Black Box

with 4 comments

2008-12-15

Check out those acute geography skills in panel one. If only New Jersey and Australia were neighbors, if only. Then I could actually visit Hobbiton and be with my people.

Anyways, Black Box is a multimedia CD publication from Brimstone Press that features short fiction (drabbles, really), artwork, and music from a slew of contributors. To name a few from the author lineup, there’s Lucy Sussex, Mikal Trimm, Jay Caselberg, Lee Battersby, Jason Sizemore, and me, of course.

My published piece is a quick bit of dark flash called “Something” that is another go at the theme of scary shit under the water that I can’t seem to escape in much of my writing. Oh well. It works for some people.

I haven’t tried to run the CD on my aging PC yet, but if it worked there then that would be Irony with a capital i. Will keep all you die-hard fans up-to-date…

Every day ends in wasted motion
Just crossed swords on the killing floor
To settle back is to settle without knowing
The hard edge that you’re settling for
