Now is your chance to join in on that.

Deadman’s Tome Recap (5/26)

William C Marchese (WCM): On Friday’s show, we dug in deep with ghost hunter Gerard Simonelli. He taught us about different types of apparitions and gave an insight to his world. 
Jesse Dedman (JD): Gerard Simonelli is a paranormal investigator that doesn’t care for bullshit. I like that, and I think he made for a great guest. I learned so much about ghosts that I’ve begun to question the strange feelings I experience in my own home.
WCM: A surprising visit by a new character, Cat Man, caused Jessie to find a fetish he never knew he had…or did he? Let’s just say, Cat Man was purring by the end of the show. 
JD: What kind of world do we live in where a man dresses up like a Cat? The best of worlds. Oh, kitty allowed me to get close, really close.
WCM: We also touched on a new path being tested to get the show out further, Real Vision Radio, and how we’re feeling the crunch of creative oppression from the various rules and regulations. Lets just say, I enjoyed my four bottles of apple juice. 
JD: We’ve become so accustomed to drinking loads of alcohol that I’m surprised we weren’t going through withdrawals. I swear, Real Vision Radio, we weren’t sneaking shots. I swear it. Yeah, we’re playing on Spreaker and Real Vision Radio now, as well as uploading to iTunes and YouTube. Going on Real Vision is new and with new territory comes unforeseen challenges. They came up, but we learned from them.
WCM: Until next time, please comment or follow. More to come soon.

Deadman’s Tome Recap (4/29/2017) 

WCM — William Marchese

JD — Jesse Dedman
WCM: (Sometime after the show) I lay here, eyes set on the ceiling, I think crazy thoughts. Len plays on the speakers. “Steal my sunshime!” The world spins. 
JD: (Last night into morning) After downing a bottle of wine and several glasses of Jack, I crashed into a drunken slumber. I woke to the sound of my son shouting dad over and over again. I thought it would go away, but the moment of silence was followed by a sudden body slam. My son was on my back beating my head like a bongo.
WCM: And I wake up this morning and the Coronas don’t hold my mind captive any more. See that trick of time? A Motrin and I’m good to go. 
JD: My mind is free from any hangover, but the responsibility of being the best dad ever is not. Busy life in this household. 
WCM: Last night we had a day-late show due to personal issues, but we persevered. 
We talked about cursing, or as Jesse says, “cussing.” How laziness it brings can equate to writing. And a story I wrote about last Wednesday on artificial Wombs.
JD you’re beating around the bush. You know you want to say it. I can’t stop from cussing. I spoke about Trump and then shit spewed out from my mouth! Now I’m at Gary’s mercy. Jesus Christ. 
WCM: Haha, yes. Now lets see what Gary has in store for you. You naughty boy. 
Until next week.

Deadman’s Tome Podcast (recap)

WCMarchese (WCM): Last night on the Deadman’s Tome podcast we had some nonsense bantering, antvdiscussed conspiracy theories. 

While some are proven to be true, it’s important to be careful and watch out where you are getting the news from. 

Jesse Dedman (JD): Mainstream media will not tell you that Disney is conditioning the children for drone surveillance. Disney aims at kids, and profits from prying on them. Now they’re teaching them that it’s cool and normal to have your privacy invaded! 

Why do you think this is happening? They don’t want the kids to object to little shutterbugs flying around them, piloted by pedo pervs. Sick. Evil. But that’s Disney. 

WCM: We also discussed if it is better to type fast, or slow. Sort of came to the conclusion that both can be good for different things. Like fast for getting info onto the page that you’d forget, and slow for being more in touch with the words. Choose them wisely, indeed. 

JD: Fast typing lowers the quality of prose. Writers dependent on speed typing don’t take the time for the best word. Instead, they shit something out as they’re taking a shit on the ivory throne. Some writers, will go back and revise their rushed out story. That seems like a balanced approach.

WCM: Another topic is how cell phones have made it easier to edit and write in the go. I’m literally banging this post out while warming the car to take care of errands. Nice. 

JD: I’m banging my wife while writing this post. Very nice, indeed.

WCM: LMAO!

WCM: This episode was in video format, a little mix up we’re testing. A lot of the things done for now are subtle tests, though, the organic, grass roots feel should never be neglected. After all, it’s just a couple of guys shooting the shit and discussing writing and random things. 

JD: I used to use Live Hangouts for the podcast. A lot of people are used to checking their iTunes feed in the morning after. If we do more live streams, then I’ll make an effort to upload the audio portion to Spreaker and iTunes. 

WCM: Sounds good to me. 

Until next week.
