Reading Books and More Books

First off – Sandbox Radio’s show “The Big One” that I had the pleasure of reading at is up now to listen too. Check it out here!

Hey! It’s 2016. A new year, a new you? For me New Year’s Eve is my favorite holiday. I love all the enjoy and fresh feeling behind it. However I hate how much pressure people put on the night. It has to be the best. It has to be flawless. Well, I had a blast this year! I went to a wedding, which was absolutely beautiful and full of love. Then went out dancing until about 4 in the morning with my dad of all people. It was one for the books.

Now I am back in Los Angeles which means being back to grinding. Writing, networking, and of course reading. Lots and lots of reading. I got some great books for Christmas that I can’t wait to crack up. I am still posting my goofy little book reviews on my other blog The New Blog On The Block. Most recent is actor’s Jesse Eisenberg’s book “Bream Gives Me Hiccups & Other Stories.” Read my thoughts here.

Enjoy!

Ela Barton Has An Event // “social media juice cleanse”

As an artist social media can just be too much. Well, this is true for people in general. That’s why sometimes you need step away from it. Case in point my dear friend Ela BartonEla has decided to take a three day social media juice cleanse meaning being MIA for three days.

Ela was a little worried since she has events she needs to prompt. So I thought; “Hey! Let me help you out. Promote your events while you’re gone.”

This is me doing that.

ELA HAS AN EVENT! On December 10th. Crosscut Arts Salon: Housing Affordability (It’s things like this that make me miss Seattle.) Here’s the show’s details (via Eventbrite)

“Crosscut’s curated Arts Salon series will feature artists who develop visual, film or performance art that explore key challenges in our community.
The first Arts Salon in this series will feature artists who have roots in the South Lake Union and Belltown area and who, through their work, performance and voice, will share the value of artists and art to the city, their experience living and working in the city, and visions for a creative future in the midst of development and a rise in housing costs. 

Enjoy complimentary appetizers and drinks before several artists take the stage including:

-Greg Lundgren, Seattle-based artist, author, filmmaker and entrepreneur, has strong roots in South Lake Union. Lundgren curates art installations with Vital 5 Productions, runs The Hideout and heads the alternative headstone movement at Lundgren Monuments. He will kick off the event with a history lesson on South Lake Union`s art scene.

– Ela Barton, Seattle-based slam poet champion and founder of Rain City Poetry Slam, will perform their “unapologetic, smart and sharp-tongued” (Seattle Gay News) work.

– Seattle-based artist Cathy McClure is known for her toy sculptures, while Alfred Harris will display his transluscent, fibrous, paper creations. Both will speak to creative affordable art space solutions.

We hope to see all of you there for this incredible line up of Seattle`s artistic minds!”

Power Couples

I have a lot to say. I sometimes like to think as a writer I get paid to inspire people and get paid to shit talk. But more importantly I write to keep sane. Posted a piece I wrote a long time ago and had no where to post it so I thought I would post it on my own blog. Why not right?

Tender Moments

I got stickers! To celebrate my new blog and I wrote a “book review.” A writer who writes book reviews? I know, go figure.

I’m really into blogging. But I am starting to think people don’t understand my humor. You guys know I barely can speak English but I am fluent in sarcasm, right?

There isn’t a font yet for sarcasm (yet) but thankful there are emojis to help me out when I am texting. But with blogging, blogging it’s harder. Just know I blog and write to share my views and outlooks on the world while trying to make the reader laugh.

We need to worry less, laugh more, and eat what we want.

Keep on Keeping On

Currently in Seattle, headed to LA shortly. Now, I’ve been MIA for many reasons. Being busy, being me, and what not. The MAIN reason is back in June I was hit by a car while on my bike so I haven’t been able to write, too busy rehabbing.

But for the updates.

-Bumbershoot was this weekend. I was jumping around with a press pass as well as hosting the 2nd Annual Battle of The Word Poetry Slam.

-Various random articles are up on FRANK151 as well. Subject matter from Trump, Frank OceanRachel Dolezal, That NEW Irish Pride, and the most topical subject matter Idris as James Bond (& other comical relief)

-This evening I will be hosting the Seattle Poetry Slam. So come through and kick it!

Til next time.

As always – follow me in “real time” via facebookInstagramtwitter and the good old tumblr.

What I Can’t Tell.

I mean this with every fiber of my being: I do not believe “writer’s block.”

WritersBlock_1024x1024

However lately I have been really rethinking my stance on the subject. I just haven’t been able to really produce anything. I am running low on time with a bunch of different deadlines. But even with the days nearly to an end; I can’t seem to be productive. The only time I ever get any work done is super late at night. (Like right now for example.)

My muse is kind of a brat in that way. Always bothering me when I am trying to sleep but seems to be far too busy to visit me during normal daylight hours.

However I was able to write a “book review” about Kim Kardashian’s book of selfies, compiled a list of summer movies for you to check out, and even got to feature an interview I did awhile back with my friend and mentor Hollis Wong-Wear!

Alright. I’ve been somewhat product but still! These three screenplays aren’t going to write themselves. Well! That’s it for now. Catch back to read more of my rants.

AND AS ALWAYS you can still keep up with me in “real time” via facebookInstagramtwitter and the good old tumblr.

Filling in the Gaps!

So much has happened. So much is going on. So. Why not fill in all those gaps, shall we?

I will hosting the Seattle Poetry Slam Finals this Saturday May 2nd in Seattle at Town Hall

I had the honored and privilege of being interviewed by Theatrical Mustang which you can listen HERE!

I’ve written a lot of new pieces for FRANK151. Oh yeah. A lot of shit talking that I think you might enjoy. A piece about mid-education of music, BuzzFeed, JCole’s Puppy Love, and sadly the LAST Tinder Tale.

But as always you can still keep up with me in “real time” via facebook, Instagram, twitter and the good old tumblr.
