I write because I play music, I play music because I write. I don't really know what that means.
Shepard, Saunders, Santa. Figure I'll keep it to the S's for now.
Chris, thanks so much for the kind comment and fav for "Repair Man." I really appreciate it!
Hey Chris, thanks for the invite! Debbie says to read 'Jump', so I'm going to do that now. =)
Loved your spaceship story. I guess you took it down right in the middle of me reading it, because my comment didn't post (and I wasn't able to fave it). Anyway, I went to Paradigm to commune with it again there.
B'burg gets the "lake effect," I think. I'm in Prospect Hts. and so am suffering from the "top of the hill" effect. That and the "crappy window" effect.
Wry stuff, hope to read more.
Brooklyn in the house today! Always happy to meet another writer from the nabe.
Welcome to Fictionaut! Glad you found an invite.
Bring on the backbeat, brother.I admire the bass so very,very much.My two favorites would be upright and fuzz. I'm not sure what kind of bass you play but it's got to feel great making that cool of a sound. May I suggest listening to Paul McCartney's bass playing on Abbey Road--simply amazing, fluid and inventive.Welcome aboard.
