BARBECUE to be published

My weird, weird ghost story BARBECUE will be punlished in the October 26th issue--this Sunday's issue of SCHLOCK! WEBZINE. A link will follow.

It Certainly Looks A Lot Like, Not Halloween

It just doesn't feel right. It just doesn't have the same impact. Granted I live in Milford, Connecticut where the police have, in practice, barred all Halloween expression beyond a simple array of pumpkins.

What have we become?

Well, we have become a society of struggling families. We have become a cosiety devoid of free expression. We have become a censored society where ideas are more illegal than practice.

We also have become a society ruled by bland and mindless entertainment.

And unbeknowest to all our society has become fearful. Fearful to overt expression. Fearful to independant ideas and fearful to stand out from the crowd.

What it looks and feels like to me is that the trepidation of expression has led to the monsters being let loose on maple street, main street and every street in between.

The lack of passion hides an insecurity of intellect and overall lack of creativity spawn by subpar schools and a culture in rapid decline.

Instead of preaching independence and ingenuity we surrounded with collectivity. This correctness of the herd is nothing more than cowardice.

And cowardice is always death.

The death of a coward, like any death is horrible, but it is especially so when it occurs between the ears.

My Article On The Novel "Brain Waves And Death" To Be Published

In Bosley Gravel's Cavalcade of Terror. Details to come....

So what did we see at Gunntown?

Despite the time we spent there and the multitudes of photos, not a thing. The only strange experience witnessed was a dog that refused to go through the entrance. No matter how his master coaxed, pushed and pulled, the pup refused to enter.

Yes, hackles were up.

Yes, the dark barked at nothing.

And yes a photo at that moment revealed nothing.

But deep in my git I knew something was there.

Time To Stock The Cupboard

I don't have much out there. My time has been spent with my business and my submissions have dwindled. But three have gone out today and we are planning now to plow ahead and finish the year, God willing, with a flurry.

Gunntown Cemetery

My words will be spoken by the living protraying the dead this Friday and Saturday. Because of my own insecurities I won't be there to watch but I hope you will. I will await the reviews at Sardi's.

Go to Gunntown. Support the Naugatuck Historical Society. Enjoy the show.

Does it feel like Halloween to you?

I know I've been away, working my day job through a quite intense litigation schedule over the last forty five days but despite the junk trudging through my, I just haven't felt all that inspired.

It just doesn't feel like Halloween.

Global Warming has nothing to do with it. Global Warming is too busy screwing up the NFL, effecting the greatest issues facing humanity and providing smart words for celebrities and creatures who believe they are celebrities.

No. There is nothing special at this time year this time.

Perhaps because the horrors we have faced and will yet to face are all too real and not as contrived and cartoony as our pathetic and pale culture portrays them. We live in a country where our government spies on us, takes the fruit of our labors and refuses to protect us.

Yeah it doesn't feel like Halloween.

It feels like everyday life.
