When in doubt…

No need to shout; As long as eyes stout; You can find out No need to fret; wipe away the wet; you’re sure to get; what you seek from the ‘net For example, like me; I could no longer see; On my old iPhone 3G; My playlists three With them now gone, I could play… Read more »

Powerless

It’s been hell.  Feeling unmotivated, dispassionate, hesitant and disconnected.  Cut off from the things I know and enjoy. Yeah, two weeks without the desktop. Sure, all you phone and tablet people can’t see the big deal.  Even you laptop people probably scratch your heads.  But it’s all about where your comfort zone is. I spent… Read more »

What kind of week has it been

As with most people who have streaming services for their TV (Netflix, Amazon, etc.), I enjoy watching various television series I never watched back when they were on air. Of those, I particularly like the witty banter and controversial takes from two Aaron Sorkin created shows, The West Wing and the under-appreciated Studio 60 on… Read more »

Unreal!

A few weeks ago, I was watching some sporting event and as the program went to commercial break, I didn’t channel surf as I normally do during that 2 1/2 minute bombardment.

I recently had reason to consider the trouble I… Read more »

Between vision and reality

Book Three of the Jeremy Shuttle Adventures is being released this month and that means a refresh to the website is required. From years of work as an artist and advertiser, I have a well-developed design sense and have always had a clear view of how I want my website to look.  That’s not always… Read more »

I’m #1!

A funny thing happened when I was reviewing all the product information out there on my books.  “What Now?” was finally up on Amazon and authors generally have to manually add information to the listings to make them complete. The process is easy enough to access that I decided to check out the first two… Read more »

A crying shame

What a waste. It was an ugly experience running through my first book again and correcting the constantly repeated error I made.  Ugly, but necessary. One of the most basic rules of grammar:  punctuation goes inside the quotation marks.  I messed that up on probably 70% of the times it appeared in the book.  70%!!!… Read more »
