response from Horror Sleaze Trash

i heard back from AG at Horror Sleaze Trash on my poetry submission from earlier today. my poems "modern slavery" and "just in case" have been accepted for publication.

Wednesday, April 8, 2020

thank you John Prine

when my mother told me last night that John Prine had died, it was like getting punched in my dick. no matter how much i prepared my mind to the thought that this fucking virus would kill him, i never wanted to see it happen. i put on my 10 favorite John Prine songs last night and have basically had them on repeat since. and to get it down to just 10 was nearly fucking impossible. the one thing that listening to John Prine taught me was how to be a better storyteller. how to weave comedy and social commentary in the same stream of thought. thank you for everything. i hope you get to enjoy Paradise, you certainly have earned it.

so, basically i've been depressed most of today. yet, i had poems to send out. i made myself laugh when i told my mother trying to be creative when depressed is like fucking a corpse. enjoy the visual.

i sent out 22 poems today; 3 each to The Beatnik Cowboy and Red Eft Review; 5 each to Synchronized Chaos (already accepted for publication) and Horror Sleaze Trash; 6 poems to Record Magazine. when i hear back from these places i will pass along the verdicts.

here is your video for this day of National Poetry Month:

WWE Backstage was pretty good last night.

Dark Side of the Ring and After Dark were both really good last night. i was shocked that Vince Russo actually apologized to Bart Gunn about the whole Brawl For All bullshit back in the day.

on the DVR tonight will be Vice News Tonight, The Masked Singer, AEW and NXT.

once i get this blog done, i think i'm going to take a nice long shower and see if some cold water gets me out of this funk.

a big thank you to everyone that has listened to my latest SoundCloud tracks. i really do appreciate it.

i know when i wake up from a dream about my father...

it's never a good thing. and it's not often a dream, more of a recollection of a nightmare. and when i start my day off like this, i know a shit storm isn't far behind.

night 2 of WrestleMania 36 was better than night 1 was. and as much as i loved the Boneyard match on night 1, The Firefly Fun House match between John Cena and Bray Wyatt was beyond fucking brilliant. for every wrestling fan around my age, if you weren't laughing from all the references and the shots taken at the business, please stop watching. kudos to WWE for pulling off an event that was way better than i think anyone ever thought they could do given the circumstances.

Atlanta's Missing and Murdered:The Lost Children was really good last night. i know a little about the story already, so i'm really hoping the documentary will fill in the blanks over the next few weeks.

Westworld was excellent last night.

Last Week Tonight was brilliant as usual.

VICE was really good last night.

Homeland was good last night.

Black Monday was pretty funny last night.

enjoy some music:

and now some of this and that:

on the DVR tonight will be Vice News Tonight, Desus & Mero, The Voice and The Plot Against America. i'll be watching Monday Night Raw for most of the evening.

https://www.juxtaprosemagazine.org/john-sweet/

night 1 of WrestleMania 36 got off to a slow start. i thought the matches were not that different from Raw or Smackdown. about halfway through the night, that all changed. and by the time the Boneyard match between The Undertaker and AJ Styles was over, it was a very enjoyable night. i really hope tonight will be more of the same...

ROH was very good last night.

enjoy some music:

and now some of this and that:

on the DVR tonight will be VICE, Homeland, Black Monday, Last Week Tonight, Westworld and Atlanta's Missing and Murdered: The Lost Children. i'll be watching night 2 of WrestleMania 36 for most of the evening.

i finally figured out how to get the WWE Network on the television in the living room. so, i didn't have to watch night 1 while sitting at my computer.

i hope everyone had a great Saturday. hope your Sunday is even better.

i have no clue when i will be on here tomorrow. i know it will probably be sometime between loads of laundry.

until tomorrow kids...

welcome to WrestleMania weekend...

i have to admit, i am very curious what WrestleMania is going to look like this year. as far as i know, the matches have already been taped, but i have avoided any spoilers. i'm dying for any kind of sports at the moment, so even if it isn't great i'll probably still like it.

Smackdown and 205 Live were both pretty good last night.

the season finale of High Maintenance last night was excellent.

Real Time with Bill Maher was hilarious last night.

enjoy some music:

and now some of this and that:

on the DVR tonight will be ROH. i'll be watching night 1 of WrestleMania 36 tonight on WWE Network.

i got a somewhat decent night of sleep (almost a solid 5 hours) last night, so i'm hoping i feel better today.

the joy of finding toilet paper...

of course, it couldn't be the toilet paper i wanted, but shit, it will do. and mom got a bunch of wipes sent to the house today. so, we're set for the next month or so i think. i did get everything on the grocery list today. took going to 3 different stores to do it. i did get a good laugh when i was in Family Dollar. they were talking about the woman that was leaving the store when i was walking in. apparently, that was her third time in the store that day. mind you, this was before noon. she changed her clothes and came back twice. all for toilet paper and cleaning supplies. the joy of living in a town full of Republicans. everyone here is hoarding everything. fucking assholes.

i did a total of 5 recordings last night of my poems. i will be posting the next one probably early next week on SoundCloud.

Total Bellas was pretty good last night.

Young Sheldon was pretty funny last night.

Indebted was funny last night.

Vice News Tonight had a couple good nights of shows this week.

Better Things was awesome last night.

on the DVR tonight will be Smackdown, Real Time with Bill Maher and the season finale of High Maintenance. i'll watch 205 Live sometime tonight on WWE Network.

our grass got cut today. it was nice enough out that i actually opened up the house a bit.

i managed to shave a bit and get the fucking hair off of my neck before i took a shower today. amazingly, i think the barber shop in town is still open. surprised no one has told the state about that.

Obi Toppin and Anthony Grant pulled off another double trophy take again. both won the Naismith Coach and Player of the Year.

i should be on here early tomorrow. it will definitely be before the first night of WrestleMania 36 starts.

i hope everyone has a great weekend. hopefully the weather is nice enough you can get outside for a bit and do something.

stay healthy kids...

AEW was really good last night as well.

i did watch NXT UK this afternoon. it was really good.

i've got 3 checks i need to write tonight to pay down some credit card bills and i know i need to get some writing done and some recording done.

so yeah, that's all for me kids.

i hope everyone is doing well and is staying as healthy as possible.

welcome to National Poetry Month...

come every April here on the blog, i try to do a little something special for National Poetry Month. but, since the apocalypse is upon us and i'm not really in the mood, don't expect anything magnificent this year. i'm sure i'll post some videos, maybe even do a few myself. i know i am planning on doing some recording this month. hopefully, i will do some writing and get some shit published as well. with that being said, here is your video for this day of National Poetry Month:

i did go to the bank today. i could tell i was out of it. couldn't figure out how to open the tube in the drive thru and i fucking forgot to sign the check. i guess 3 hours of sleep isn't going to cut it anymore. after that, i went to the drugstore. of course, no fucking toilet paper at all to be found. i wasn't in the mood for a search today, so after i got what was on the list, i went home. i think i might have got about 30 minutes of sleep this afternoon. that will have to do.

Dark Side of the Ring and After Dark last night were both brilliant. the topic last night of the show was New Jack. New Jack was probably the craziest wrestler i've ever seen in my life.

WWE Backstage was good last night.

The Scheme was really good last night. it really showed how naive the NCAA and FBI are about money in college basketball.


enjoy some music:

and now some of this and that:

on the DVR tonight will be Vice News Tonight, The Masked Singer, AEW and NXT.

hopefully, i will have a new recording posted by tomorrow on SoundCloud. i have about six poems i'd like to do this month.

amazingly, i haven't had a drop of alcohol in weeks. god i can't wait for sports to come back.

the other thing about April 1st, it is the anniversary of my baptism. i don't think anything can describe my relationship with god better than being baptized on April Fool's Day.

Monday Night Raw was good last night. hard to fucking believe WrestleMania is this weekend.

Desus & Mero was fucking hilarious last night.

not the news i wanted to hear...

i was hit with a right hook of depression last night when it was announced that John Prine was in critical condition in the hospital battling COVID-19. it brought back a flood of memories. i remember when Mary Beth, this beautiful woman i worked with at the airport, told me to listen to John Prine. a funny side note, Mary Beth told me one night if she wasn't married, she would definitely go out with me. i told her you shouldn't have told me that. she asked me why? i said because now i'm the asshole rooting for your divorce. she never did get that divorce. that was over 20 years ago now. thankfully, by this afternoon, John Prine was in stable condition. he's beaten cancer twice, so i'm not counting him out just yet. here's my favorite song of his, although i probably have a hundred or so more i could have mentioned...

i went to the grocery store today to pick up my medicine and get some shit we needed. the store was better stocked than the last time i was there. of course, they still didn't have much toilet paper or tissues, etc. and of course, you could imagine what i was looking for... i still managed to spend over $70 there.

VICE was excellent last night. i'm so happy the show is back on television, now on Showtime.

Homeland was really good last night.

Black Monday was pretty funny last night.

Westworld was fucking great last night.

Last Week Tonight was brilliant as usual.

the iHeart Living Room Concert last night was really good.

enjoy some music:

and now some of this and that:

i have no clue when i will be on here tomorrow.

we had a few storms roll through here yesterday. most of the big shit missed us. today, it's a constant wind. 25 MPH with gusts into the 50's. joy. i'm trying to let the house air out a bit, but i'm not stupid enough to open all the windows and enjoy the chaos.
