G. S. Oldman is a cranky Midwest reclusive who tries to forget that he once published poems and essays in zines that barely existed, then remembers that he also wrote for newspapers and contributed to journals like Thrasher, No Mag, Forced Exposure, Flipside and Option. He also won’t divulge the number of Midwest motorcycles or skateboards he’s destroyed, nor will he mention having filled spaces in X-rated prose and film scripts without having to take his clothes off. In the 1990s, he did time in the backrooms of arts and music promotion in Austin, TX because someone needed to write those blurbs, bios and phony reviews. After Hurricane Katrina, he escaped back to the heartland where all hell did not break loose, and no one could hang the wr ...more

Maybe in another blog post?


It’s a raging old question, I wager, and one that’ll get a person deeper into trouble as easily as give them a sane way out. Trust me; I know this; and Kurt; and Vonnegut ain’t gonna tell me no different.


In a nutshell, audiobook production is nothing to be taken lightly. It can be as formulaic as mundane writing or brilliant as a wild venture that, even with odds supp...

A tough one here. I tend to find most of the world’s disappointment stored in the ideas of “positivity!” and “inspirational!” Not because they set up impossible rewards on ABSOLUTELY-EVERY-THING-HOLY-COWLY-A-RAMA (but cuz days usually start in the cr ...more

Why the hell did I give this gonzo gram-goober 5 stars? Easy. It’s proof that Timothy Leary could make sense when he said, “Why not?” Yep. Easy as that. Kerouac, love him or hate him, did too, and John Steinbeck pulled off the same thing on a much la ...more

One of the freshest novels I discovered at the local library, Antoine Wilson’s “Panorama City” was a grand read of anti-realistic proportions. There’s REALISM!, Realism, and there’s all the points in between. Someplace in that mix lies concepts that ...more

After who knows how many years of being a champion for “the classics” (as well as historic, scientific & industrial non-fiction), I one day forced myself to discover the contemporary novel. This was maybe 7-8 years ago when I saw “Stiltsville” di ...more

At risk of plagiarizing myself, I copied my Sept. 2015 Amazon review (w/minor edits):

I’m generally skeptical about rock & roll books, especially novels. It’s a myth-laden avenue of culture that’s all too easy for an author to fake. It’s possible

Got this from a friend who lives in Sheboygan. Apparently, a revised edition was released that I haven't read. So this may be a flawed evaluation. If not, this non-fiction story is imperfect, but it's a great story on surfing in an unlikely locale. T ...more

Yes. I read this in its entirety.
Yes. I sometimes wanted to quit but glad I didn't.
Yes. You can disagree and avoid me.
Yes. I won't give a Bloomin' Fuck, then.
Yes. It was the best of wakes. It was the worst of wakes.
Yes. In less than 100 words. Yes.
