The Trailer

You know what’s crazy? I’ll tell you what’s crazy.™ The Trailer. The stench emanating from the Winnebago is overwhelming. It smells like an open sewer filtered through a skunk’s raised tail. The filthy camper is in the middle of the KOA campground at the back end of the park. The trees surrounding the trailer are […]

The Gift

You know what’s crazy? I’ll tell you what’s crazy™ The gift. A white cop. A black woman.  A very large 10 year old boy. I’m seated at a table covered in football equipment. A mouth piece, a face shield, a size 11 pair of cleats. The boy is in 5th grade. He is gargantuan. He […]

The Conventions

You know what’s crazy? I’ll tell you what’s crazy™ The conventions. Donkeys vs Elephants. Republicans vs Democrats. Liberals vs. Conservatives. Americans vs Americans. I’m watching the Democratic National Convention. I watched the Republican National Convention last week. They are the same, but very very different. The conventions are bombastic and over the top. They are biased […]

Tow Truck Discounter

You know what’s crazy? I’ll tell you what’s crazy™ The Tow Truck man. I have met a lot of tow truck guys in my life and they are a different breed. Most of them are big burly Paul Bunyan like bastards who wear short sleeves even in the icy throws of winter. Somehow they stay […]

Cold Turkey

You know what’s crazy? I’ll tell you what’s crazy™ Taking a few months off. For years, I didn’t miss a day. Every single day, I wrote and published a Life’s Crazy story. Some were great and some sucked and most were somewhere in between. But I wrote and wrote and wrote. Then one day, I stopped. […]

You know what’s crazy? I’ll tell you what’s crazy™ Notarized confessions. It’s like Taxi Cab Confessions, except rolling around like a drunk ass in the back of a cab, you’re sorry ass goes to the glass house. You know why Notarized Confessions are  crazy? Because it’s like waving the white flag of surrender. If you’re […]

10 pages

You know what’s Crazy? I’ll tell you what’s crazy! Writing a 120 page screen play, spending months on it, then just dumping it in a box. That my friends is crazy! Sadly I have done this a dozen times in my life. These are the memories that began pulsing through my brain as I stumbled […]

The Box

You know what’s crazy? I’ll tell you what’s crazy™ Writing the great American novel. So what do I want to write about? What do I have to say? They say write what you know. But is that sexy enough to sell? I’ve written what I know, I’ve written what I think I know, I’ve written what […]

The Revenant

You know what’s crazy? I’ll tell you what’s crazy™ The Revenant. A frontiersman on a fur trading expedition in the 1820s fights for survival after being mauled by a bear and left for dead by members of his own hunting team. Yes it is all this. But it’s much more. It’s man versus nature. It’s […]

Dirt Digger

You know what’s crazy? I’ll tell you what’s crazy. Dirt. I am covered in it. I’m exfoliating with tundra. I’m wearing an aboriginal mask of dried grass. I look like Al Jolson if he were hosting the Lawn and Garden Channel. I’m in the back yard toiling on a Sunday. This is America. As Joe […]
