Random Madness 12.16.18
That’s basically what social media is, right? Random madness. One post at a time?
This is everything I wanted to write on Facebook or Twitter today.
I think this will be the daily plan from here on out. Too many feelings to step on when things go directly to the public.
If you get triggered, it’s your own fault. You had to do a lot of clicking to get here.
Enjoy the show…
1. I think I have officially lost touch with society. Everyone is either in election denial or triggered by pretty much everything. Almost like Eastwood in El Camino with less racism.
2. I can’t wait to read this! Probably the only thing that can get me in the spirit. We will read this next week on the Butterflies Make Me Angry Podcast!
3. Never be the poster boy for someone else’s reinvention. Hold them accountable. Witchcraft is cheap and probably has an Etsy store.
4. UPS delivered the vaccine? I’ve watched them drive by my condo without stopping and claim I wasn’t home! No! Bad government. Bad government!
5. I know someone whose motto is “I’ll try anything once, except anal.” I think it’s a motto more of us should get ‘behind’.
6. I’m listening to some of The Doors studio recordings. Multiple takes of the same song. Jim Morrison was burned out, bored, and stoned. He keeps repeating “Money beats soul.” I get it, Jim. I get it.
7. My hometown newspaper asked its readers how they planned on spending their pandemic holiday. Most everyone said they were planning to celebrate normally. If you are unfortunate enough to drive through Greenville Texas next week, gas up ahead of time, pedal to the floor, and don’t pull over for sweet smiles and booty shorts. It’s a trap. At least masks hide meth mouth.
8. Yep. Definitely behind the times. Waiting on my son at school. I’m the only person not advertising a visible frog eye or camel toe. When will yoga pants go out of style? Stay classy, Dallas!
9. Tomorrow night on the Butterflies Make Me Angry Podcast, it will be my birthday episode. Anything goes. I think we will read a story from the Del James collection The Language of Fear. After all, it was the book responsible for my writing career. It is also the book which contains the short story Without You…which is the story that inspired the music video for November Rain by Guns N Roses. Del James is a god. Wrote an intro for me to a book no longer on the market. Go here to join us on the show by chatting or calling in https://www.podbean.com/lsw/MYabTW5FLG?lsid=xyyw9f7gupo
or listen to the recorded version on all other formats like iHeart Radio, Spotify, or Pandora. Kinda boring to do it that way though…
10. My step son just taught me how to play Dreidel. He’s five years old, not Jewish, and probably more intelligent than 75% of the adults who will read this post. Let your kids have the opportunity to explore all religions. Not just yours. It’s not fair.
11. Check out the Sailor Moon episode titled Slim City. It is nothing but fat shaming. I personally didn’t know too many Sailor Moon fans who where super skinny. This must’ve sucked for them. Sure, the episode was written and first aired in 1995, but fuck anyone who would try to profit off of making little girls feel like shit while watching their favorite cartoon.
12. My latest novel. Available in paperback too. Rumors are that hardback and audiobook may be coming as well. It’s not your Paw Paw’s paperback.
