Back when I worked at Starbucks another store tried to prank us once. After a retaliation deemed by some as ‘overkill’ we were never pranked again. Also, Hangin’ with the Pentacles in this week’s reading!
This week I talk about how I got into doing sketch comedy with a group of plucky misfits called MicroSatan, and the connections you form with the people you work with creatively that bond you forever. Also, I’m throwing chaos magic all over the place while Kings and Swords come together in the cards for this week.
This week I performed a LIVE reading form my new novella, Sinkhole, at Wake the Dead Coffee in San Marcos, TX with some other awesome authors, and I recorded my performance to share with everyone on the podcast. Also, the Pages are bringing some strong, excitable energy in this week’s reading.
I’m back from Days of the Dead Indianapolis and what a time it was! This week I recap my experience less than eight hours after I got home, and talk about all the awesome interactions I had. Also, Swords of intellect and experience dominate this week’s reading!
We all have had teachers who have motivated us through the interest they took, or the encouragement they gave. This week I tell a story about a teacher I had who motivated me through a very different manner. Plus, the Moon sets the tone of this week’s reading.
A few weeks ago I told you all about my trip to Chicago for Printers Row Lit Fest including how I performed storytelling at the after party. On this episode I play the live audio from the performance where I regaled the room with the tale of The Great Donks Adventure, and how it will always hold a special place in my heart. Plus, Strength and Balance rule the cards in this week’s reading.
Remember the good old days when smoking a blunt would get you all silly-like? What a time! This week I tell a story of the blunt that numbed all senses except for those of a Houston Police officer. Luckily, it was my friend’s dad, but the important thing is I didn’t learn any lessons. Also, the Wands won’t let me half-ass it while the Pentacles lay out the rest on this week’s reading.
Well, here we are at episode 100, and I couldn’t have done it without your support! I truly, truly appreciate it. This week I tell a story about another wild L2V road show, but one that lacks the fun and games you’ve come to expect. It’s about what you do sometimes on the path to your dream that isn’t glamorous, or sexy, or even necessarily fun at all, but it’s this and hundreds of other small, similar instances that help propel you to where you’re going even though you may not realize it at the time. Also, Pentacles and the Devil are in the cards for me this week.
The first time is never the best, but is a required to experience to get to to where you’re going. The first time on the road is awesome for every band, but how appreciated is it? Also, The Emperor strong-arms through the Swords on this week’s reading!
I’m not sure if this story qualifies as a ‘wrong place, wrong time’ situation, but it certainly was in my mind at the time. I think it’s more like a ‘too high to be any place’ situation I was in. So is the plight of the young stoner, but these are the things we go through that make up stronger. Also, this is about the first time I saw Akira.
I know we all learned to never take candy from strangers, but what about taking strangers to get candy? This week I tell a story about yet another dumb decision I made that could have killed me yet somehow I come away unscathed to fight another day!
I always wanted a van with a wizard airbrushed on the side of it, and one day I achieved one half of that dream. This is the story of said van’s first voyage, and the magic required to get Letters to Voltron to the gig. Also, kings of love lay out a path in this week’s reading.
This week I delve back into my days as a mischievous youth hell-bent on not being convincing myself I wasn’t a giant pussy, and what better way to prove that than with some good old fashion vandalism. I might have jumped the gun at being a super villain though, because leaving my calling card was not the best move. Plus, this week’s reading has us dive into our subconscious while drinking out of cups!
We can’t all be sportsman, right? This week I give some background into the recording of a classic Letters to Voltron record as well as learning when not to hang out in the pool with your band mate.
This week I talk about being signed to an Independent Label with the band I was playing in several years ago. It didn’t turn out to be the experience of our dreams, and it left the band in pieces, but the knowledge gained proves to be invaluable.
I love horror, but when I was a kid it scared the bejezzus out of me! I was afraid of anything the least bit related to monsters or evil, and now I can't get enough of the stuff. Love that evil! Anyway, I started thinking about the origins of this fear and tried to figure it all out in this week's story. Hail Satan!
