Camera Redux

My short, Camera Eye, published last year at Apex Digest, continues to hang out in the top ten from month to month.

Kinda cool.

Great Heinlein Quote

Not much of a Heinlein fan, but I ran across this:

"1. You must write. 2. You must finish what you write. 3. You must refrain from rewriting, except to editorial order. 4. You must put the work on the market. 5. You must keep the work on the market until it is sold." -Robert A. Heinlein

and was suitably inspired.

Uggh.

No good news yet.

Instead: three rejections this week.

I'm Back

I hate Jan. -> Mar. I never get anything done.

But now it's spring and I'm back.

Not that anybody reads this thing anyway.

Got a few lines in the water as far as stories go. Hopefully I'll have some good news to post soon.

Amazing what a few beers and a little self-pity can do:

I feel much better this morning about not winning the Apex contest.

Congrats to the winners!

Bleah

Well, I made the final twelve of the Apex Digest Halloween Contest, but didn't make it into the top four prize winners.

Sucks.

Grateful Dead : 11-6-79

Stream

C. Miller has once again graced us with a new transcription of a classic '79 show, and it's one of my fave-raves. It's often discounted because of the great company it keeps (10-27, 11-9 etc.), which is a freaking shame, considering the perfect nature of set II.

Set I shouldn't be overlooked. Vocals are spot-on and Jerry's cooking, but it's standard for the period, smoking as it is.

Set II is the real craziness: four songs (and Drumz) encapsulating and condensing the GD second set gestalt into that old proverbial nutshell. The song list runs:

Terrapin->
Playin'->
Drumz->
Black Peter->
Good Lovin'

...signifying:

Parable->Enlightenment->
Statement of Purpose->Exploration->
Chaos->
Death->
Rebirth

Beautiful, aint it?
