On the positive side of things, I was able to sit and do quite literally nothing for almost an entire year. Although, I didn’t exactly do nothing… I cleaned up and restored the entire discography of Chumbawamba, as well as re-posting most of their liner notes from my decades-old website. I restored, mixed, and completed an entire “lost” Beach Boys album, almost entirely from hours upon hours of session recordings. I properly mastered and re-uploaded my own music. I played an assload of Animal Crossing: New Horizons. I wrote a bunch of stuff, and most importantly…
I finally published book 1 of my comedy adventure series! “TIMECLOCK: The Adventures of Richard Flint” is officially out and for sale in both ebook and physical forms, at all online shops called Amazon. You can find it HERE! I’m pretty happy with it, and have begun work on book 2, which will be called “Hibernation Death Nap” and will be released whenever the hell I actually decide it’s done.
I haven’t decided if I want to pick back up my poetry blog posts that I began waaaaay back at the start of 2020, which came to a halt for obvious reasons… but I might just make myself do it. It might be a decent way to really drive those creative juices into my brain and out of my body.
So, as we start the new year that we’re already a week into, go ahead and BUY MY BOOK and give a little listen to the new remaster of the dumbest song I have ever recorded…
Something I did to myself many years ago — eleven to be exact — was force myself to write one poem every week. Observational, sometimes absurd, I wrote one per week for an entire year.
So here I am again, with a new blog, a new year, and a new pair of knickers… And what better way to ring in the roaring twenties than with anther year of running out of ideas for poems?
I’ll be posting one new poem per week, unless of course I forget, in which case the following poem will be about how I forgot… I expect it to be an entertaining and occasionally arduous experience for us all.
Amidst all the newly penned thoughts and observations, I will be re-posting all of the older poems I wrote way back when, simply for the sake of moving them to this new blog, and away from the old one, which is relatively inaccessible by now.
So here’s to a lot of absurdity, and I apologize in advance for some of the things I’m likely to write.
