In the meantime…

Ooooooooooooooohkay. So part of this delay for June…I tried going off my ADHD meds for about a week.

A time which will be known as SQUIRREL WEEK. Because I got really fuck all done. I mean, I was still doing stuff, but nothing focused and big. Then Audacity (the software I use for creating and editing my podcasts) decided it’s going senile. I’m not sure if it’s the software or worse yet (le sigh) if it’s a sign I need to do a re-install/refresh on my computer operating system.

Alternately, I could just start dumping a whole bunch of my saved ideas/ pictures/ jokes on my website (and social media) in the meantime. I’ve got a tonne of stuff, and considering the instability of social media at the moment. Advertisers and users are fleeing Facebook/ Twitter because these two (among other services) are enabling racists and morons to spread their cancerous messages. I’ll still use them as promotional channels, but this is my semi-annual reminder to me to use my website more.

Anyhow. Gonna figure out projects to work on, continue planning my week, etc. In the meantime, as Pride month closes out, and with BLM and protests still being relevant…here’s a very very gay version of that old Shirley Bassey favorite, Diamonds are Forever sung by Black and Gay British musician David McAlmont, arranged by British film composer David Arnold (whom I can’t confirm is gay, but he’s clearly hung around gay men at some point in his life from his acting in the video).

And as I’m about to post it, an idea comes to me….And I think I speak for all when I say WHEN THE FUCK ARE WE GOING TO GET OUR [someone who is not a white straight male] SPY MOVIE?

Alone Plague Journal – new fiction

Introducing The Alone Plague Journal – a new fiction series. I’ve posted it on my Podcast page, the text of it (and bonus links to the YouTube songs) on the Library page. Podcast available through Podbean (also on iTunes and Google Play).

This is a work in progress and a fictional account of one person’s perspective of the global pandemic; I will also weave in other characters and a storyline through the Journal. It’s kinda based on what I’m observing in the world, but also I’m extrapolating trends, ideas, characters (e.g. decided one character would be a bit of a conspiracy nut). Enjoy. Follow me here, on Social Media, download the podcasts, and if you like, support me through my Ko-fi account.
