Let’s Talk About Charles Barkley And Applebees

barkley

Last week, I was a guest on Dirk Walker’s wonderful Inside Joke podcast. Topics include Charles Barkley eating Applebees, walking around downtown Indianapolis in matching Patrick Ewing jerseys with my girlfriend, and Last Call in the City of Bridges.

LET’S FIGURE OUT MY THIRD ACT! #amwriting

2013-05-20 09.42.02Do you guys ever block out your writing projects to try and figure out the scene structures? I was really skeptical of this before I wrote Last Call, but now I’m a true believer. I can’t express how helpful I find it to be able to block out scenes on index cards so you can physically restructure your book. For those curious (crickets), I’m just under 50,000 words on a new novel. It’s about dinosaurs (just kidding (not really)).

The Weekend at Bernie’s II 20th Anniversary Celebration!

bernie 2
On July 9th, 1993 AD, humanity received its greatest gift: the theatrical release of the dopest film ever made: Weekend at Bernie’s II. Join me in honoring this cinematic masterpiece for its 20th anniversary.

This July 9th at 7pm eastern time, we will livetweet a national viewing of Weekend at Bernie’s II under the hasgtag #WAB2. DVDs can be purchased for only $6.99 through Amazon, and can you really put a price tag on a film Variety called “a mildly diverting farcical caper”?

Together, we will share thoughts, critiques, and memories of our favorite undead buddy comedy in real time. Together, we will become infinite.

Goodnight Knicks

In the great big Garden
There were two lonely banners
And a chubby Carmelo
And a video of
Earl going pipestrong on all

And Novak and Cope and Camby were sitting on pine
And the decapitated head of Tyson Chandler
And YA author Amar’e
And a ’95 Co-Rookie of the Year
And a rapper named Iman
And Pope Pablo and Woodson’s beard and an extra large burrito just for Ray Felton
And little old Spike who was screaming “Blue and Gold Skies Forever!”

Goodnight Garden
Goodnight Melo
Goodnight pipestrong Earl
Goodnight League Pass
And the two lonely banners dead in the rafters

Goodnight Novak, Cope, and Camby
Goodnight Breen
Goodnight Tyson’s zombie corpse
And goodnight STAT and your bones made from glass

Goodnight Clyde
And goodnight Lala
Goodnight little blogs
And goodnight Stephen A. who knows everyone personally

Goodnight Pablo
And goodnight Woody
Goodnight burrito
Goodnight Ray
And goodnight to Spike whimpering “John Starks.”

Goodnight stars
Goodnight Melo
Goodnight noises everywhere.

“And the Knicks have done it! They move on to the Eastern Conference Finals after falling behind 3-1 to the Indiana Pacers with three convincing blowouts.”

I done kept it real from the jump
Living at my mama’s house we’d argue every month
I was trying to get it on my own
Working all night, traffic on the way home
And my uncle calling me like “Where ya at?
I gave you the keys told ya bring it right back”
I just think its funny how it goes
Now I’m on the road, half a million for a show
And we…

Boys tell stories about the man
Say I never struggled, wasn’t hungry, yeah, I doubt it
I could turn your boy into the man
There ain’t really much I hear that’s poppin’ off without us
We just want the credit where it’s due
I’ma worry about me
just as a reminder to myself
I wear every single chain, even when I’m in the house
Cause we…

No fake friends, where you real friends at?
We don’t like to do too much explaining
Story stays the same I never changed it
No new friends, friend we don’t feel that
No fake friends, where you real friends at?
We don’t like to do too much explaining
Story stay the same through the money and the fame
Cause we…

THE ASCENSION OF SAINT CARMELO ANTHONY IN INDIANAPOLIS

Books and Booze Podcast

5169_524716058084_7552179_n

Last night, mere moments after the Knicks’ excruciating loss to Boston, I recorded a podcast about Last Call in the City of Bridges with the fine folks at Books and Booze. I want to thank Renee Pickup, Jessica Taylor, and Dakota Taylor for having me. I tried to keep it together and only devolved into a long tirade about Reggie Miller once. Topics include social media, Nintendo, Weekend at Bernie’s II, and the time David James Keaton bought me a Spider-Man fighting ring for our trip to Vegas.
