Hollywood Ongoing

3 minute sample:

Work on The Dark Side of Tinsel Town continues; an audio recording of the Shooting Script for the imminent Naked Reading the Second shall be available for patrons only on February 1st. The MP3 is 55 minutes in length and made up of excerpts from the first part of the book. A PDF is also uploaded.

“And even though literary investigation may bear no real fruit, I must continue to write this out for myriad reasons, not least of which is the fact that – even to this day – I still find it difficult to believe, even though I possess all the photographs and documents of verification – I still find it difficult to believe that what I am about to write really did happen in my life. In Hollywood, it really did happen…
But this story, dearest reader, is not about me.”

One English Pound Per Week

Being mathematically dyslexic, I recently came across a calculator…
Lo & Behold, check this:
If every follower of this author blog should pledge One English Pound Per Week,
I would not then be forced
To live on Bread & Water.
Most of you have been with me for seven years.
Most of the work has been offered for free…
Question: What value does contemporary literature have for you?
Cash is a concept which cracks my heart.
But alas! I have recently done the maths…
For The Hollywood Bus Stop work-in-progress
Benefaction is required.
Pledges can be made via Patreon or Paypal
In anticipation of the continuation
Of literature for eyes & ears
Consider this an appeal, if the following is worthy
Of One English Pound Per Week.

2018…

P1030931

 

This pocket watch was created in the 1700s.
It is ticking beside me as I type.
Actual year unknown – either 1777 or 1782.
I shall elaborate further come January…

Some Literary Resolutions… because we cannot conquer Time:

1; “If you are doing business with a religious sonnovabitch, get it in writing. His word isn’t worth shit, not with the ‘Good Lord’ telling him how to fuck you on the deal.” – William S. Burroughs.

2; “Do not cast your pearls before swine.” – Source Unknown (if you know, tell me so).

3; “Above all else – Know Thyself.” – Socrates. Later developed by Shakespeare for the mouth of Polonius in Hamlet to; “this, above all else – to thine own self be true.”
