a dream from dave, illustrated by rose

hi again.
So really, the dragon was a mutated crow. it got the zombie virus or whatever, and started growing, and i accidentally taught it to breath fire, so it was a dragon.

i've really got to stop accidentally teaching zombie crows to breath fire, it only turns into trouble.

originally, i was in a school with a bunch of classmates, and we launched a defensive campaign against the invading zombies, but then they all ran away, died, or turned into zombies.

we had fancy-pants compound bows though, like they use in archery competitions. we fought off the first wave, and i decided to set out on my own to get the crow/dragon before it came back for us. it sort of sucked, because it was on top of one of those giant power line towers, so i had to climb up w/o it seeing me i got about halfway up before some jerk that followed me woke the dragon up, and i had to magically float back down, run away, and do the whole fall down/ roll over and shoot thing with my last arrow.

luckily, i got it.

by the time i got back there were only a few people left at the school, and we were getting surrounded again. we took the elevator to the top floor, cuz zombies can't accuratly push buttons, and shot arrows down at them, but then somehow i was the only one left. apparently i also decided that since no one else was around, i should probably finish up fighting the zombies naked, which seems like a bad idea, in hindsight.

but, i killed off all the zombies, and was down to 2 arrows, which i used on the two talking zombie crows that crawled through a small vent and started making fun of me. jerks.

What a great marketing tool. Get your song on a new i-pod nano commercial. It is one of those tunes that gets stuck in your head, "1 2 3 4 ..." So I found her, Canadian girl Feist. I like her video for "My Moon My Man" even if it does sort of feel rather familiar....
Somebody teach me how to upload a video to the blog!

read our friends.

Gullible zineenator CT publishes great prose "Metal Detector Days" in the lit-mag supplement of RVA Magazine Holy Moly (.pdf download, go to pg 30). RVA Mag should be so lucky to get writers this good for free all the time; but it'd be better if they paid them. Personally, I can't wait for him to get a book deal so I can engross myself in his paperbacks on the train home.

Mario in Brooklyn!

Happy Fall

So I'm going to Minneapolis and then Nashville for work and really what I'm most upset about missing is The Super Massive Cuddle Party in NYC. Sometimes Rose has all the luck.

Halloween Costumes

I know it's early, but I'm already SO excited! I just decided what to be for halloween. I'm calling dibbs now. No biting unless you're in another city!
READY? Drum Roll please...

That's right! I'm going to be the fifth most evil villain ever! according to the Amercan Film Institute: Mildred Ratched RN (from One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest of course!)

I have a great hair dresser I just need a brand new pair white sneakers (size 8.5) and a uniform, a nurse hat and maybe a neck brace. Should I be the scary, stern Nurse Ratched, or the defeated, post-choking Nurse Ratched?

What are you guys going to be for Halloween!?
