Things Will Get Really Out of Control
if David Foster Wallace Doesn’t Do His Laundry Soon

I’ve not published many novels and short story collections. Here are 11 more books I didn’t publish.

  • David Foster Wallace Gets Serious about His Laundry. A morally passionate, passionately moral fiction that tells what it is to have fucking clean clothing. An ironically unironic story about laundry that includes a 7 page footnote describing the manufacturing process and chemical

Squids on a Wing – Pink Floyd Outtake

Squids, figs, and so many other things before pigs.

I could work hard at completing my novel or revising my short story or writing a novella. Instead, I spent hours creating a half minute video.

Dialogue as Instructed by Unpublished Guy

Dialogue
My dialogue is so alive and real, it has self esteem issues

Make your dialogue real by writing it exactly like a conversation, capturing the boring, repetitive, and inane. Don’t let exposition and long paragraphs of description get all the monotony accolades. Master dialogue that drones on and on, interspersed with ummms and yea.

Make your dialogue more real than real by writing entirely unlike a conversation. I’ve been engaged in some fairly robust girdling Read the rest

Teaching, Writing, and Misshaping Minds

My proudest moment—working as an unqualified teacher sharing with uninspired youth my inability to write and publish. My teaching had a transitory impact on a few people.

Gift From My Writing Students
Gift From My Writing Students

Many writer’s can’t live on what they publish. As an unpublished fiction writer, I have felt even greater pressure to generate alternate revenue streams. My teaching provided more than meager revenue and academic disrespect. I had many opportunities to connect with today’s youth … Read the rest

How Can I Make My Fiction More Unappealing?

Fiction Every Bit as Appealing as Protose
Fiction Every Bit as Appealing as Protose

Early in my fictional career as a literary writer, I established milestones that would build my confidence on my way to publishing success.

The first milestone: profoundly impact at least one person with my fiction. I achieved this milestone quickly. A short story that I had written for a creative writing workshop had profoundly affected one of my classmates. The short story, “Pendanticia, the Uncensored Adventures of a … Read the rest

Ron Paul Descendent Supports Holodeck Manufacturers

Ron Paul Legacy Protects Holodeck Manufacturers
Ron Paul Legacy Protects Holodeck Manufacturers

Mr. Speaker I, Raul Paul, rise before the Federation Council in opposition to this resolution to tightly regulate holodeck manufacturers, just as my father would have, and my father’s father would have and my father’s father’s father and my father’s father’s father’s father …

As is typical of Federation bureaucracy, this proposal usurps the constitution to solve a problem–if it existed, which I don’t believe it does–that would be … Read the rest

Ron Paul’s Hunger Games

Speeding in Post-Paul Alabama – One Way Ticket to Hunger Games.

License and registration, ma’am.

I’m afraid you were going 55 in a 65 speed zone.

That’s a 65 minimum speed ma’am.

I’m not interested in how they do things in the Mississippi. Mississippi is a hot bed of socialism. In the Great Republic of Alabama, we have a low tolerance for slow driving.

As your roadside judge, I sentence you to the Hunger Games. … Read the rest

Kucinich Loss a Blow Against Ineffectiveness

Kucinich Wins Like the French and the French fight like the Ferengi

Kucinich Wins Like the French and the French fight like the Ferengi

Long regarded as a heretic on Ferenginar, traditionalists celebrated the defeat of Dennis Kucinich on March 6th. The orthodox Ferengi despised Kucinich because he was a caring, passionate man who ineffectively pushed his principled agenda. He stood alone, speaking the truth about power and corruption on Ferenginar.

He was one of the few who truly and ineffectually represented the Birkenstock consumer and not … Read the rest

Open Letter to Santorum – Separation of Science and State

Dear Rick Santorum:

The Michigan primary is nearly upon us, and you have an urge to puke. Understandable, with the assault on religion by socialists and phony theologies. I’m afraid it gets much worse, Mr. Santorum. During the struggle between church and state, the spectre of science has been stealthily corrupting our youth, as it casts a fearsome shadow of rigorous, free thinking over public schools.

I believe in an America where the separation of … Read the rest

Neko, Nico, Necco, My Blog Needs a Theme Song

Neko, Nico, Necco WafersNeko, Nico, Necco Wafers

My blog needs a theme song, and I’m asking you to help me decide what it should be.

  • Patterns by Simon and the other Guy. An empowering song about living life one day at a time.
  • Welcome to the Machine by Pink Floyd. A stirring tribute to the industrial revolution.
  • Porchlight by Neko Case. A romantic love song.
