Hi frenz! My micro-essay “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now, Daddio” is up at Foliate Oak Literary Magazine today. It’s a short humor piece about how I successfully tricked a local radio DJ into playing my favorite Starship song when I was a kid.
You can read it here: Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now, Daddio
Foliate Oak is the literary magazine for the University of Arkansas, and the irony that I did not attend a single day of college in my entire life is not lost on me here. This is my first publication in a university journal, which basically means I get an honorary doctoral degree now or something, so you may now commence calling me Doctor Pissypants.
I have actually been to Arkansas, though. Right in that area where you drive over the Mississippi River out of Memphis, Tennessee and you see that “Welcome to Arkansas!” sign in the middle of a corn field and say to the person in the passenger seat, “Uh oh” and then turn the car around and drive back to Memphis for more day-drinking.
Thanks so much for reading! I’ve just been walking around all day lately not believing my luck.
And here’s your weird boyfriend Nicolas Cage, who is also my weird boyfriend, and the universe’s weird boyfriend.
