Indianapolis, Mass Transit and Me.

Not quite the journey of a thousand miles. You may know that I am attending the Bouchercon in Indianapolis. You may not know that I am taking Amtrak there and Greyhound back.  It’s about 22 hours each way. I honestly want to see if mass transit is a viable alternative to air travel.  It’s also green, man.  And I’m all about the green. I will be updating the traveling there and back as well as the Bouchercon/Indianapolis in the upcoming days. You may be amused by keeping...

What Is the Greatest Nation in the World?

Why, it’s the DO-nation! Yes, I ripped that off from somebody who ripped it off of someone else, but it is a wonderful sentiment. You know as well as I do that this country has experienced, shall we say, a bit of an economic malaise over the last year or so?  It’s only now that people are contemplating whether or not we’ve hit a floor. Let’s give this man a sidesmile!  Donate today! Banks and financial institutions get government bailouts.  Arts institutions get the...

On the Road Again!

No, not here, though I wish! Hey, all, I want to let you know about an event coming up this Sunday. Bad news: it’s not in New York City. Good news: it takes place in Paramus, New Jersey!

I’m 40 and I Saw Grant Hart Play

Grant Hart, a one-man band who knows how to wage psychic warfare. Well a whole bunch of things have happened lately that I haven’t been blogging about. I’ve seen The Vaselines twice again when they came through Manhattan and Brooklyn in mid-May.  I didn’t bother write about the shows because they have been so extensively covered I didn’t know what else I could add to it and also I wrote about their two shows in the New York City area a year ago. I’ve also got...

I’ve Had Stuff on My Plate

A Korean chain opens their first American outlet in America! In NYC! Kimchi and hotdogs and bulgogi all in a wrap! And speaking of wrap, here’s a wrap-up as to why I haven’t been posting as of late. I’ve been busy, mostly holed up writing and watching many, many movies. Yes, I said writing!  The sequel to This Is a Bust is coming out on St. Martin’s/Thomas Dunne/Minotaur in Winter 2010, but the specific “pub date” has not yet been set. Whew!  I have...
