Friends: I have just been notified that GOODREADS.COM would like me to run their Q&A system. This is big news. The Q&A is similar to Reddit AMA (Ask Me Anything). It means that you, and ALL users of Goodreads, have the capability to post a question, and I will answer.

This Q&A will be posted right here to GOODREADS.COM for all to see. It truly shows the power of the Internet, and it is an excellent way to become familiar with Web browser, etc. I believe that is an important tool for the future. So please, give it a try: ask questions, and I will provide answer.

Some of my new poems have been featured in the UP poetry journal along with several top respected poets. This is big news. Please follow the LINK above and enjoy. And pass it on!

I have become convinced that the new postmodern approach to poetry, with cut-ups and random access and memory logic, is the wave of the future. I have seen the new poetry by my friend Tao Lin and others who are exploring the Alt Lit craze. It seems to work. Make it happen. Connect different ways. And it seems that together, we can create a new poetic literature. Think outside the box. Mix it up a bit. What do you think?

Just featured in The Next Best Book Blog with a Tip on "How To Eat Like An Author." I hope you visit the page. Only takes a moment. There's pictures, and a handy Recipe too. This is perfect for writing (and for reading the writing). Pass It On.

Writing is hard work. Needs energy. In this way it is just like Programming. Both at the Computer. So when I am Writing or Programming, I need something to give me energy to allow me to stay at the Computer. For this, I have a special recipe. It's a Chex Mix For Writers and Programmers. Here 'tis:

1 box Chex cereal (Rice flavor)
1 box Chex cereal (Corn flavor)
1 can Party Nuts (generic OK)
1 small bag tiny pretzels
1 small bag Cheetos
1 small bag Fritos
6 Tablespoons margarine (Blue Bonnet, etc)
2 Tablespoons Worstershire sauce
1.5 Teaspoons Lawry's salt
1 Teaspoon garlic powder
.5 Teaspoon onion powder

Get a big bowl. Mix up the cereals, nuts, pretzels, and chips. Use platic tongs. Make sure bowl is not made of metal. Now in small container microwave the margarine until it's all melted (usually under a minute); careful not to splash. Take out and add all seasonings. Mix well with teaspoon or tablespoon. Pour over the mix in the big bowl. Now pick up tongs again and mix, mix, mix. Place big bowl in microwave and Nuke for 2 minutes. Take out and mix, mix, mix. Nuke again for 2 minutes. Mix, mix, mix. Nuke one last time (2 minutes). Take out, dump whole bowl on cookie sheets or wax paper (you chose). When cool, place in nice plastic tubs or containers you reuse from other things (margarine tub, pretzel jugs, Pringles, etc). Keep containers handy near the Computer for snack to keep going, late night or anytime. YUM!

Glad to see more reader reactions to Huckleberry Milton. Always exciting/entertaining. Can start in on it anywhere. Go any page. Come for more. Now this:

"[T]he plot concept of the novel is sound and definitely interesting."

"[T]his book ... is ... to anyone ... of a certain age and with certain interests."

"This entire book felt like it was ... totally okay ... Not only that, but .... getting anyone else into the book ... '60s-'70s pop culture ... obscure references..."

"The mixture of styles ... worth the effort it takes to get through ... at the end."

I just received notes from several Doctors. They came inside email. The message was tantalizing. But even more importantly, they also decided to use part of my Writing to explain their medical ideas to patients. This is amazing.

First, here is the message. Many Doctors said the same thing. Everyone should read this:

"Being obese is a terrible thing. You are restricted in so many aspects that
life seems bleak and frustrating.
You cannot wear stylish clothes, you cannot get the spouse of your dreams, and
you cannot be as active as you want because excessive kilograms stand in your
way. Do not despair because we have a perfect solution for you. Eat whatever you
like, stick to your usual activities and lose at least 3 kg weekly! No efforts, no health risks, no failure because the product we offer is absolutely natural and 99.99% efficient.
Read now!"

And finally, in the same E-mail was a selection from some of my Writing. I am honored. Here is the selection, read it right now for FREE:

"Catiline and a daughter of Cicero as well as the historic political situation.
Pumped boreholes can be placed at any node within the model domain.
Ince suffered in the 1960s and 1970s from much house clearance and landscaping.
In 1967 Wahl produced the first cordless hair clipper using its own
rechargeable battery technology.
In spite of such huge population,there a only very few hotels to cater the
people. The present synagogue has served the Jewish community since its
inauguration on October 13, 1925. Tycho's character based on Telltale's draft
It complies with the Indian Government's Right to Information Act. Afghanland
Movie Review, Afghanland.
After the war, Jacobsen was convicted of treason and sentenced to three and a
half years at hard labor.
It was great in its way, but it put me in a real corner in that it fucked with
my integrity. Her Majesty put the visitors at ease with a laugh and a
resumption of conversation. Galland noticed that the highly educated engineers
and trainees were selected for the bomber arm in the early war years. Dama does
not try to hide the fact that the Matres dearly want to learn to modify their
biochemistry as the Bene Gesserit do.
Master of Education program started. She comes to the conclusion that she wants
to vote for the legalization of marijuana when she is older.
When the collar is missing, it results in a type of error called a broadstrike.
They do, but the villagers push them away.
Basoli terrazzo nel locale della Pontificia Accademia di Belle Arti."

Wanted to share an important Update with my Friends on here, because it will affect all of us soon. I have noticed that society is increasingly connected on Social Media. It is a definite trend. Facebook, Twitter, Goodreads, MySpace, Tumblr, Google+, Yahoo, everyone needs to know these acroynms now. You can't avoid it.

But there is a problem. Each system has its own connecting features. Each system gives you a way to connect with your friends. Even if you use E-mail import, you don't always connect with all the same friends. That means these systems are unbalanced, unequal. Some people are missing out. There is always a void.

What seems to be the next logical step is a new system where ALL are automatically Friends with ALL other users. It only makes sense. Now, no more need for Friend requests. No worries that you forgot about Aunt Sally on your one page, and your good buddy Joe is forgotten on the next. Now, ALL are connected. It will promote Peace and Harmony on a Global Scale, since ALL will be Friends. It is also good for Business. We must promote this. Partial "Friendship" lists are no longer an option. We must ALL connect.

I believe this can be done by adding a larger array space to the VAR() that holds the Friends list. This is a Programming problem. Simply increase the linked list / data variable from the current level to an integer that can hold all users. I believe it can be done. So if you know any Programmers, please pass this note to them. I think if one of them is able to do it, it will be a great success.

The National Weather Service gave us a Powerful message today: We come in Peace, it seems to say, across all RADAR systems. This tie-dye technicolor light show is visible on iPhone, computer monitor (LCD/VGA), TV, everywhere. Even newspapers will print it. The Washington Post explains. ("Multi-color rays")

I Predict more of these Weather Messages. They make sense. They will send a Powerful Message to the world. People will sit back and enjoy. Like fireworks, but now even on any old Weather app. Families will gather round. Coffee break at the workplace. Everyone will watch, even on bus ride. Looking at iPhone, all will enjoy. And the message? PEACE. Yes, it shows that Peace is important. Good job.

The ladies at Wanton Reads had a lil' chat with me about how it works to rewrite Mark Twain's Huckleberry Finn.

"It’s like Austin Powers meets The Office with a mix of 80s technology and today’s Internet."
