April 2015 Updates

Hey folks,

As far as I know, Verse Chorus is no longer interested in representing the BJM book. Their reason is the same as most of the other rejection letters I've received, that "this is good work, but I'm afraid it just won't sell. What's the big deal about this band anyway?"

Sigh.

Oh well. Everyone should just know that the book is basically finished and just needs a home to get to take it to that next level, so I've been working on that. Stay tuned.

In between I've been busy acting in film adaptations of Joyce, movies with Tom Sizemore, and making my own records with the band Gorky. Also working on my second Master's in English, trying to publish some poems and essays, and starting a slew of other projects.

There's a new BJM album out this week. Also there was the limited run of the Tess Parks/Anton Newcombe vinyls for Record Store Day. I sadly could not get one, as I live 150 miles away from the nearest record store, but things are happening beyond the hype which interest me more. It is all rolling at a pace previously thought impossible and we are all very excited to see it unfold in reality.

In the meantime, if you'd like to talk with me about the book or anything else I'm up to, Gorky will be playing a gig with Chui Wan on May 4th at Crescent Ballroom in Phoenix. Ricky from BJM will be there, too. Come down and hang if you're in town. $3 pre-sale or $5 at the door. See you there.

JMGV.

Some art for the book...



This is some collage art I made for the first chapter. I plan on doing more like this and spacing them between chapters.
