So we all know I’m a music fan. I was fortunate enough to get to see Alice Cooper and Mötley Crüe earlier in the summer. In a nutshell: an amazing show. It also apparently unleashed my creative side in terrifying new ways. It also got me thinking. I live a lot of different types of … More Dr. Feelgood or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Crue
I talk a lot off and on about influences, and there will be more of that to come this week – some sad, some not. But what do you do when you wake up and find out that THE influence, the major creative force that inspired you to do what you do, is gone? David … More Said You Took a Big Trip: David Bowie
I’ve been debating if I was going to mention this for a few weeks now, ever since a friend of mine posted it on Facebook. I agree with a lot of it, but I also think that it (somewhat) takes for granted what a hard time it is if you choose to make a creative … More Real Life as an Artist or How Much are You Worth?
Yeah, I know that’s a lame title, but do you have any idea how impossible it is to come up with a clever Alice Cooper line that hasn’t been done a million times before? It would be like trying to come up with an original pun of my name or something. Alice Cooper is one … More The Malice of Alice
Okay, okay, we’ve gotten a little heavy in the past couple of posts. While I stand by all that, it’s time to lighten things up before I totally hole up in my feelings somewhere…After the past couple of weeks, I definitely need to remember some lighter stuff. So early in July, I broke down and … More Kickstart my Nightmare: Cooper & Crue
Admittedly I’ve felt at a crossroads lately. There’s been a lot of change going on. All of it has been necessary, not all of it has been easy, and it’s obviously brought about a lot of reflection and reminiscing. A few posts back I talked about my participation in the cult of libraries, which definitely … More Music and Me
It’s not often you get to actually interact or interview one of your inspirations, but I’m incredibly excited to have this opportunity tomorrow (Wednesday, July 9). Join us 9PM EST on The Star Chamber Show when we put G Tom Mac in the hot seat and ask him about his songwriting, his … More G Tom Mac on The Star Chamber Show!
I realize I’ve been pretty quiet lately, but that’s only because there’s a lot going on…a lot of cool stuff, that is. Since one of those projects goes live tomorrow (Wed, Nov 27), I figured that it would be the smart thing to announce that one first. I’m going to be part of a host … More The Star Chamber Show debuts Wed Nov 27 at 9pm EST!
Before I forget (there’s a LOT going on this week for me on so many levels!), I wanted to share two more guest posts I’ve done for Lost in the Shadows! I’m at Laurie’s Paranormal Thoughts and Reviews talking about the book and sharing the excerpts – plus there’s a giveaway to get in … More More guest spots for Lost in the Shadows!
I was interviewed earlier this week by the lovely G.L. Giles, and boy did I have a blast! She asked some really insightful questions that made me think (and think…and think, lol). I love talking about my creative endeavors, and this was a fun chance to do so. To see what I had to say … More Interviewed by G.L. Giles!
