It’s been a while since we’ve done a private show for the patrons, and I feel that the amount of time and the amount of love and support given by them deserves a completely unfiltered and uncensored live stream. We’re just now really growing on YouTube, but for the patrons I’m willing to put the channel on the line to bring the entertainment they deserve!
On November 17th at 9:30pm CST, Deadman’s Tome will go on the warpath on various trolls in the industry, Mr. Deadman will display his love an affection for Gary and Tony, followed by a sausage fest that will probably get a community guideline strike.
The link to watch the live show will be on the Patreon page.
Whether you are a writer, musician, or an artist, we juggle routines with responsibilities and priorities. Responsibilities, such as getting the kids ready for school or taking out the trash, can’t be ignored. Just as priorities such as dropping that morning deuce or brewing that fresh cup of coffee are essential to daily living. But there are things we often think of as priorities when they’re really not. Catching up on Orange is the New Black on Netflix or watching the latest live stream on YouTube aren’t really priorities, and in fact eat at the time you could have for your creative endeavor.
Am I full of crap? Let me put it to you this way. I talked with Chris Roy on a recent episode of the Deadman’s Tome podcast, and this man is an author. Chris Roy has a few books out and his recent work is Her Name is Mercie, a collection of short stories. Now, you might be wondering, big deal there are lots of writers and authors out there. But while you spend maybe an hour a week on that project, he spent hours a day. While you have access to a computer and just about any writing resource, he’s limited to a cell phone and very limited data. You see, Chris Roy is a prisoner sentenced to life. While he has plenty of time to write, and a mind swimming with ideas, most wouldn’t think he would have the tools, resources, and environment conducive for the craft.
Yet, Chris Roy makes it work. I think the big reasons for that are ambition and priority. In prison, Chris does not have to worry about the distractions and the bullshit that constantly bombards those on the outside. So, do what he does and extract those distractions form your life, remove yourself from the temptation, don’t even kid yourself that just on more round of Fortnite will be enough to satisfy you so that you can spend another 30 minutes staring at a blank screen and 15 minutes of actual writing.
So, next time you even think about procrastinating, think of what Chris Roy can accomplish just on a phone, using the time he has. What can you do with your computer? What can you do if you’re not wasting time consuming media?
It’s Saturday before Easter, and I’m assigned the task of turning a rust bucket of a grill into a fucking somewhat sanitary meat cooking machine!
This gill hasn’t been used in ages. The last time meat was on this baby was back when I had to get a bit creative on disposing a body. Only kidding NSA, only kidding.
No, but seriously, this grill is a rust bucket. So what do I do? I YouTube some tips: soap, water, vinegar and a lot of scrubbing. Good thing my arm gets plenty of practice. Okay, I chill it with the puns.
To give an idea of how old this grill is and how unused it has become, frogs are about to get smoked out from their home!
The other thing I do, as a writer, is zone out on this and that. I got to thinking about crematorium workers and the daunting task of cleaning the burn chambers. I suppose the chore is more of a annoyance than daunting. I also suppose that it becomes so routine that the workers don’t even think about the fact that their cleaning human or animal ash. They probably think about it for the first few times, but that conversation must get old fast. Wouldn’t be surprised if the worker cleans the chamber and then chomps down on a Taco Bell burrito with unwashed hands. The guy, assuming it’s a dude, probably wanks on his man meat with ashy hands while fantasizing about the woman, dude, or dog they just recently scorched.
Gross, I know. But it would make for an interesting character. I may never use this guy or chick, but I would think that the character would be so unique and creepy that even as a background he or she would standout.
Think about that. Cleaning this rust bucket of a grill served twould purposes!
Now for the sponsor plug. Bud Light. It’s what I had left in the fridge!
Let’s explore the depths of these exciting and provocative genres with Alex S. Johnson. In addition, we cannot the elephant in the room. The biggest change of the year, of the next four years, and a change that has led to a ripple of protests, riots, and a surge of fear. Alex S. Johnson is a proud Californian and could offer his perspective on what’s been happening with the anti-trump protests.
The Walking Dead is Anti-Zombie, but that should be of no surprise. Zombies get nothing but disrespect from zombie shows, films, and video games. The only fact one needs is that a real zombie was turned down due to “health violations” and that’s total bullshit.

Unbloom by Kristine Hall-Garcia is more than a short horror about a wife that yearns for the affection of her husband, a man that is both a necrophiliac and a pedophile, but her Husband keeps a fuck toy in the basement. Unbloom is more than a brutal and gritty work of fiction, the story illustrates the simple but horrible fact that some people remain silent to the evil that others do.
The story focuses on the wife’s desperate plea for affection, to be loved like the way her husband loves the dead little girl. The wife knew her husband has this sick desire and has been enacting on it, and yet she rides along with it.
Thank god it’s only fiction, right?
While Unbloom is fiction, the reality is that much worse has happened and will continue to happen. In a world where men and women fuck farm animals and sell their kids for money, any thing is possible. Brutal tales like Unbloom serve as a bitter reminder and the complexity of the emotions involved.
