Julia Mahoney of Bloom interviewed me last week. Audio excerpts from that interview are on the Bloom website now. KFTC, lands unsuitable for mining petitions, Mad magazine, the fourth wall, Radio Raheem, and WMMT-FM are discussed. A reading from the novel Trampoline which ends in our heroine Dawn Jewell passed out facedown in her high school parking lot is also included. Thank you to Julia Mahoney and the good people at Bloom.
The Millions pointed me to Big, Bent Ears a documentary project by Rock Fish Stew proprietors Sam Stephenson and Ivan Weiss. Please watch the video at the end of the prologue where Ricky Moore, chef at the Saltbox Seafood Joint in Durham, NC explains how to handle a fish, make rockfish stew, and live life right. I bet I watch this video a hundred times.
"Gun" by Scout Niblett has been on the Trampoline writing soundtrack ever since I heard it. It has a very Dawn Jewell attitude, although I can't imagine Dawn ever shooting her man Willett. Well, I can't imagine her making a music video about it. Hot inflatable guitar solo here.
