A Night With Poor Favor…

Last night, I  traveled with my friends in the band Poor Favor as they played the Red Eyed Fly in Austin TX. It was a good night for me, because I didn’t have to worry about playing or getting people in the club, I was just along for the ride, and to help Danny from falling asleep at the wheel on the dreaded drive back home. The band is a great one. Kind of this weird little indie jam band with a little T.Rex sensibility.

I shot video last night with the 8mm app on my iphone. You can check it out here:

Tonight, I am honestly thinking about checking out a spoken word gathering, in which area writers get together and read stuff out loud. I do not know if this is a good thing or a bad thing. On one hand, I really am on a quest to meet like minded people. People who feel they have to write because they were born to do it. People who have great ideas about their craft. People who are pushing their own envelope. Not just using fancy words, but simple words effectively.

The one thing I don’t want is to go to a big wankfest where everyone just sucks each other off and gives each other false encouragement with no real criticism or suggestions. How can you improve if you are surrounded by yes men? I would rather read to a dead crowd and be chased through the streets for my awful ideas, prose and plot than get false head. I am very cautious about tonight. But, ever the glutton for punishment, I will go in hopes that I will meet at least one person who is like me in which to create my bad ass literary posse and give this town the new book scare it deserves.

A  girl who works in my building passed away this morning in a car accident on the way to work. We were told it was a car wreck. The girl was 19. I did not know her. She was new. Curiosity got to me so I decided to see if I could look her up. There is [...] Read the rest of this entry »
