Something Like This is a Dapper Press Haunted Lounge Halloween joint thing.

Appreciations many there are. Excerpt? Word.

"It was an agreement, tacit and understood.
It’s what people do over time when they are in love. They ask things of one another. They have expectations. Sometimes spoken, other times stated less overtly, the request based more in how they react, or don’t react, to the things happening around them.
We were watching a movie one night. We were on the couch. There was popcorn, Twizzlers, a comforter that had flowers all over it, and little, twisty vines.

The dogs were lying at our feet, sleeping, their backs rising with each breath, and it was dark, except for the glow of the television which was lighting up Jen’s beautiful face and illuminating her hair like a halo.


Did she look like an angel? Maybe, I thought so, but I was in love. I am in love. Despite what’s happened, where we are now, and what she has become.


Love dies for many reasons, or worse, fades, but it doesn’t stop because of something like this, a disease, or virus, or whatever. It changes, and you adapt, molding it to fit this new way of being. You have to, otherwise you have to let it go, and who wants to do that?"

New joint. Powder Blue Polyester Tuxedo. At the Manifest-Station.

And big thanks to Jennifer Pastiloff and the whole Manifest-Station crew for that. Excerpt? Word.

"Like any relationship, parenting doesn’t always feel like that though, not in the moment anyway, and not until it does, but it will, eventually, and much of the time anyway.

And so, on this day there is quiet.

Can you hear it?

Just wait a moment.

Pause.

Take it in.

It is like magic. It is magic.

The boys are reading and not because we made them do so, or because it is so important to me. It is because developmentally they have caught up with my needs and impatience, and my inability to accept that unlike actual magic, when it comes to parenting, things happen as they are supposed to if you remain diligent and trust in their inevitability."

This Podcast Will Change Your Life, Episode Ninety-Four - You Pull From Everything, starring the Ryan Kenealy.

It does, it is, we do, and we podcast, so very much. We also talk The Catcher in the Rye, working for the circus, doormen, LeBron James, Chicago, dildos, writing copy, and just writing, and both animals in peril, and Animals in Peril. Also, and as inspired by Ryan's recent Recommends joint for Poets & Writers, we do all of it, cigars in hand, sun setting in Millenium Park. Quite glorious it is, and quite certain to change your life.

This Book Will Change Your Life - Project Genesis by the Jerry Brennan.

There is the Brennan and Project Genesis from the Tortoise Books and we have read it and blurbed it and we are happy to report that it changed our lives and we believe it may just change your life as well, so please do hit it, like now, well done, thank you.

"If it takes balls to revisit, if not re-imagine, the stories of the Bible, than Jerry Brennan must have the biggest balls in the room. That he does so with enough humor and poignancy to fill both Sodom and Gomorrah is a tribute to his skills as a writer and interpreter."
