The original “Clown Tear Junkie,” Mr. Douglas Hackle, recently reviewed my Rooster Republic Press release, Domo ArigaDIE!!!, saying, among other things: “If the idea of reading beautifully crafted prose to experience B-movie, sci-fi, sexploitative, grindhouse camp appeals to you, don’t miss this one.” I truly appreciate Hackle’s words, for given the more recent unpublished work […]

Author Danger Slater recently reviewed Domo ArigaDIE!!! He loved it so much he read it in one day and passed it on to a stranger on a train. Dear, stranger: I hope the book provides you with a pleasant reading experience. And, thanks Danger for the kind words. An excerpt of Danger’s review is: “Domo […]
This final DAY 30 of Domo AriagDIE!!!-infused content comes from the creative and spiritual master, Alejandro Jodorowsky. It is a short, but incredibly moving lecture on Zen, God, and the meaning of money. And it is more than this–it is a song. Only in the last year have I come to truly appreciate and savor […]
I couldn’t fall asleep until 2:30 a.m. last night and here I am, up at 5:00 a.m. Yeah, it’s gonna be one of those kinds of days, but there’s a lot to do, so much brewing. And as I was lying in bed last night, tossing and turning, I was hit with a dose of […]
If you haven’t seen Electric Dragon 80,000V yet, you should. It’s mesmerizing. I wrote an article over at Lady Terminator’s blog. You can check out the madness HERE.
What does madness taste like? It tastes like everything Dr. Steve Brule gets his hands on. He’s the wild-haired doctor of your most surreal nightmare, the bagboy with a crush, who crushes the case with finesse and comic ferocity. He can do no wrong. He’s on Channel 5, for your health. Today’s video shows the […]
Today’s video is a live clip I found of Pika (from Afrirampo) and noise legend Lasse Marhaug collaborating on stage in Japan. I don’t think they did an album together, but if they did, please let me know. I would love to hear it, can’t stop listening to this clip. I saw Marhaug perform with […]
I tend to sit a lot when writing a book. Writing takes a physical toll on my body: the muscle aches, the sore backside, the cramped fingers shivering and withering. To combat this pain, I have to exercise. And, not only to wash away the physical demands of the craft, but to strengthen and sharpen […]
The cover art for Domo ArigaDIE!!! was inspired by Noboru Iguchi’s THE MACHINE GIRL. I didn’t know Iguchi’s work when I lived in Japan, just came across his work a year or so ago. I had a lot of catching up to do. The man is a genius, a crazy movie genius. From what I’ve […]
Shintoism doesn’t play a major role in Domo ArigaDIE!!!, but its power certainly factors into the training of one of the major characters. I also spent considerable time listening to Shinto ceremony music while editing the book. Here’s a short educational video, long enough for you to reach Kami-sama. And for Kami-sama to reach you. […]
