Some of you may recall that I recently found out that a short fiction piece I wrote is getting pubbed.
Today it went live on Storychord and I couldn’t be happier with the look, sound and feel of it.
Here’s an excerpt from the piece:
A breeze came off of the ocean and poured through the screened-in porch. The damp heat of it coiled around Jack like a heavy coat, and the space suddenly seemed too warm and too small. The air smelled of wet pennies and seaweed, the way an approaching hurricane season always did. It made him edgy, thinking of those waters heating up for a big storm. The wooden planks of the swing jammed against him and burned hot against his back and thighs. He looked up and saw that the stuffiness had even encumbered the blades of the ceiling fan. It was quiet except for that hushed loop of the fan and the rasp of the swing.
Also, tell me what you think, maybe?
Here’s why they’ve decided to ruin my memories of a 90s childhood:
We felt we’d got to a point where what we did as a band; and specifically the writing, recording, touring cycle; wasn’t doing justice to what Chumbawamba set out to do in the first place…
Chumbawamba was our vehicle for pointing at the naked Emperors, for telling our version of the truth; it gave us more than the joy and love of playing live, writing songs and singing together; it gave us a chance to be part of a broad coalition of activists and hectors, optimists and questioners. But eventually the rest of our lives got in the way and we couldn’t commit the time and enthusiasm that the band demanded. Couldn’t keep up with whatever responsibilities came with a band like this.
And you all thought art was dead!
Who wants to go pay tribute to their memory at a karaoke bar??

If I’m a hot knife, I’m a hot knife,
If I’m a hot knife, he’s a pat of butter
If I get a chance I’m gonna show him that
He’s never gonna need another
Never need another
Can’t stop listening to this.
It’s that time of year again: Justin Bieber’s new album is coming out!
Because you’re “in the know” and “hip as shit” you’re likely already aware that the album debuts on June 19 and is titled Believe.
I’ll be perfectly honest: To me, a jaded Belieber, this seems like less of an artistic endeavor and more like an opportunity for the Biebs to strut around and show off how cool he is. And he is cool.
There! I said it.
Don’t Belieb me? See below.
Reason: He’s Virile
Ever almost gotten an older woman pregnant backstage at one of your concerts?
No? Didn’t think so, losers.
Reason: Slimed, Slimed, Slimed
If you grew up watching Nickelodeon, like me, then deep down you’ve always wanted to get slimed.
God didn’t want you to have that kind of fulfillment, though, did he?. Know who he chose instead?
Reason: He Loves Basketball More Than People
I mean, do you see how passionate he is about this Lakers game? There’s nothing more important than this. Nothing.
That’s fucking cool!
Reason: He’s Secretly a Feminist
Name one other Prince de Pop who’s gone door-to-door selling cookies for the Girl Scouts of America. Try to name one, I dare you!
Reason: He’s Into S&M
Here’s the thing: You don’t just let people beat you up and take photos for nothing, amiright Rihanna?
With my Vegas road trip just 2 days away, I am officially accepting recommendations for the playlist that will carry my friends and I the 4+ hours it takes to get there.
To be clear, this isn’t amateur hour- I’ve already got the classic Vegas songs on deck (i.e. “Viva Las Vegas,” “Luck Be a Lady,” “Leaving Las Vegas” etc).
Seeking serious party/car ride jams only. What have you got for me?
What you’ve all been waiting for…!!!
