Another reading at Red Rock Coffee.

Another lesson. The reading went OK, but I have to shorten the scenery description at the start. After all, isn't that one thing I am poking fun at from Duh DaVinci Code? And that would leave more room for the colorful characters there. Like the guy who had his face reconstructed to look like a cat face (well, I never saw that, but Steve Notley of Bob the Angry Flower did).

I do love open mic night. The performers vary widely and wildly. OK, some are better than others. But I love seeing the little guy trying his stuff out. When you are on stage, the best thing to do is to always always always FORGE AHEAD!!!

I am about to see if I can write some simple iPhone and Android apps. This would be good for me. Start small. (Hello, World!)

I have been checking out lately. The website shows blank, except for cinemasports' phone number, and that the website is having technical difficulties. If cinemasports is going outta business, I am really gonna miss it. The Iron Chef of filmmaking. Making a 3 minute film in one day. Totally from scratch. Hmm, maybe I ought to look up these 48 hour short film makers. I could do that. Ah, the RUSH of filmmaking!!! I... NEED... IT!!! I will check this out. Hmm, I wonder if I can stand 48 hours to adrenalin.

Here I am. The writer.

I am at Red Rock Coffee. Listening to local bands. Writing another chapter of my book. Not quite as far as I would have liked into the chapter, but OK, I have a good shot at having it ready to read at Red Rock's Monday night Open Mic.

I am beginning to wonder if I should post some of the chapters. Or maybe that should go into a separate blog, aimed only for the book.

And my nose is getting, uh, a little runny. I ain't gonna last much longer tonight.

The music here is good. Several little bands. The voice of the little guy! And a few cute girls. They all sound pretty good!

I am at a table with two chairs. I sit in one, the other is empty. I was asked 4 times if sir, is this chair free? Yes. Yes. Yes. Yes, it is, yes, go ahead, yes yes YES. (It was a little noisy that fourth time.)

Well, time to pack up. I also deleted some rotten marketing posting off my blog. C'mon, you jerks, very few people look at my blog! You wanna get your filthy rotten stinking spam read? Aim higher!
