Official Done

Just wanted to post this to be redundant. It's my way of saying I'm now officially done with the book -- that it's completely wrapped up. Last chapter: done; word sweep: check; formatted: got it; Kindle-ready? Yup. Did I send it to any agents yet? Why, yes, I did. One. I even sent it to an editor at Harper Collins. Just for yucks. (yuck yuck yuck.) I'm looking for a lawyer to look it over (on the cheap, or free of charge, hopefully) as well. Moving forward. Trying.

+Carol Es is wrapping up her memoir: shrapnelinthesanfernandovalley.com/2018/05/24/jun… She's put a lot of time into it (like, years), and her drive and diligence makes me feel like a lazy turd. I really have to open #Scrivener and quit fucking around.

Moving sucks. So do it the least amount of times you can. But if you have to move, write an awesome blog post about it, like the talented artist Carol Es did.

You can make a statement, but keep it brief

Oh Canada, the San Gabriel Valley, LSD, white bread, the Oscar race (pretty sure he's white - har har), the wonderful and marvelous (and now dead) Joe Frank, the proximity effect, Craigslist again because apparently I'm a masochist, and last but not least on this abbreviated episode for an abbreviated month: how I became a Bitcoin millionaire!

I'm Going to Keep Doing This

Until I can't do it anymore, that is: posting about how I have too much stuff and I need YOU to come get it and take it off my hands. Please adopt a used up item today.

I am embarking some rough times

or I should say, I am right smack in the middle of them. So I will be posting a series of odd blog posts asking people for help in the form of taking my furniture away.

A Trip to Bukowski’s House

Over the river and through the woods, to Bukowski's house we go. This is just me talking about what it was like there, and how I wound up there. It's a brief tale that I thought you'd like to hear. But don't let it inspire you to go to Bukowski's house uninvited. That wouldn't be cool. Don't be that person. In California you can shoot someone through your front door and never see the inside of a police station for doing it, keep that in mind as you go about your day. It's probably a good thing to keep in mind in general, as a rule for a happy life.
