  George Romero RIP: MARTIN (1977)

The man who brought you zombies has died and, ironically, rests in peace. But there was a lot more to his work. Here for instance is what I consider his greatest film, MARTIN. About a fellow who thinks he's a vampire. Is he? Well, the question becomes, does it matter in the end? This is a film where he questions the horror genre itself. Have a look.

  For Those Who Must Have Their Dr. Who With a Dick




Jodie Whittaker as Dr Who

I see there's a lot of guys on Twitter losing their shit because till now they didn't realize how much they needed their Doctor to have a dick. Aww.

Personally, I'm just disappointed it's not Helen Mirren. But for you basement-dwelling man-babies who fear the living shit out of women, I have a solution! Yes! Here is the thing you really want.

  Deconstructing Comics: Tim & Myself Talk with Steve Pugh About Them Flintstones!

I was on Deconstructing Comics again. Tim & I talked with Steve Pugh about the recently-completed, and much-acclaimed, modernization of the Flintstones by himself and Mark Russell. Have a listen here! 

Also, for pledging listeners of the show at Patreon, Tim & I recorded an awesome bonus overview of the series upon its completion, which came shortly after we recorded the original show.

  Donald Trump vs Joe and Mika: Blackmailer In Chief









Beyond just the national shame of the repulsive, trashy, childish spectacle of the dog in the manger that is 71-year-old toddler Donald Trump's preference for personal attacks on all and sundry rather than doing even one bit of his undeserved job, there was this accusation inside Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough's incisive Washington Post response to his idiot tweets.


Donald Trump Blackmailer in Chief

Trump has been trying to blackmail them into being good little lapdogs, and who knows how many other members of the press as well, given the general bullying they regularly inflict upon nearly all the Fourth Estate.

  TWIN PEAKS: Last Night's Floor-Sweeping Scene

So can we talk about the floor-sweeping scene?
Twin Peaks: Sweeping the floor to Green Onions

This would be an example of what meditation does to Lynch's view of narrative, I think, which seems over time to have more and more in common with John Cage.

Also that Lynch understands TV induces various types of trance states.

  My Work Is About to Be Censored Out of Print! Your Help Needed! (UPDATED)

Update: Thanks to what Amazon tells me were a lot more emails than I've had sales, I'm reinstated at Createspace so most of my print catalog is still live

Except that MARTHA (which they'd left up for 7 years) is banned entirely, and Kindle, though they will stock prose dinosaur porn happily, has also erased me. So you should go to Comixology and Google Play for digital instead.

Thank you for your help. Previous post follows.

Click here for the latest...

Also, last night's TWIN PEAKS: Still loved it, but I'm starting to get a bit over the Confused Coop thing. Remember Ben Horne's Civil War? Feeling a bit like that. But I'll stick with it because anything Lynch does is interesting to me. 

But it's pretty damn good.

  Patti Rocks (David Burton Morris, 1988) starring Twin Peaks' Chris Mulkey & John Jenkins--My Teacher

A favorite from when I was a college student in Chicago. One of my teachers at the DePaul Theatre School(aka the Goodman School of Drama) that very year, John Jenkins (who taught movement) starred in and co-wrote it, along with Chris Mulkey, later Norma's criminal hubby Hank Jennings on TWIN PEAKS--partly on the strength of his performance here. He took us to the opening night, which was awesome. I later had this on VHS and wore it out watching it.

  Paris Climate Agreement: The Future Donald Trump Wants
Tomorrow Trump murders your childrens' world.

Why put my response in words? Here instead:



Glad I don't have any children, myself. Sorry if you do, because they will all suffer horribly in the world this will leave them. The GOP certainly doesn't give a damn about the children they want to force into the world.

But that's obvious, so it's a cliche, so it must not matter. Anyway, we're only talking two more generations.

  GOP Cannot Even Accomplish Evil, Let Alone Governing

Only now does the Republican Party understand what eight years of building a party based entirely on opposition to not only the president, but the government itself and every concept of governing as understood by civilization, will do. 

Only now do they realize they have no one left who knows what they're doing. And that they still have to make the government function, because they have no idea what to replace it with.

Only now does their bluff explode in their faces, but may also do so in ours as well. 

We don't need this incompetent, spiteful, evil party in our way.

  Trump's Communications Director Resigns From What Must Be Most Thankless Job on Earth

Rats know when a ship is sinking.

Trump betrays his communications staff every time he opens his mouth; it is clearly impossible for them to build anything like credibility with the media, who are now quite conditioned to spot lies from this administration, as it can always be assumed that's their first resort. 


If someone said to Trump, "Isn't it true you're just not smart enough to have plotted with Russia?" Trump would not only instantly admit everything, he would brag.

If you stay at this White House one moment longer now, your risk of being indicted grows.

Given all this, why wouldn't Trump's staff quit?

An absolute classic from the golden age of comedy albums, which in my opinion is a lost art that should be recovered. I like comedy better as just audio, personally.

  New! Suzy Spreadwell Chapter 2 p. 3: She Forgot Something

No update here last week because I was too busy with a move of Bottomless Studio, which is now, happily, done. But here was last week's Suzy at MartianLit if you missed it, continuing her parents' conversation about Lot and Sodom, started here

And now, here's this week, where we return to Suzy herself, and her frantic bicycle ride home following the events from chapter 1(which you can read here in print and here in digital). Were they events? Did they happen? And when will she notice she forgot her shorts? Click image to find out more...

  Nope: My Books Censored AGAIN At Google Play

So much for this delusion that Google Play wised up; once again they banned VLADRUSHKA, STORY OF OH, and MARTHA, the last of which is available at Amazon and has been a while. 

So I continue to not be able to have about half my books available for sale. Obviously, I'm livid. You all should complain.
