Artists, aspiring or otherwise! Want to help out a good cause?

The great musician Spartan Jet-Plex – seriously, check out her stuff on Bandcamp – is organizing a zine and live benefit show in Richmond, VA in February. The zine is looking for contributors! It can be drawings, photography, comics, poetry, editorials, whatever. The theme is social justice/civil rights but it can be general or specific, literal or abstract. It will likely be black and white due to cost. Deadline is January 2nd. It will likely be sale on the Friends For Equality Bandcamp as well. Proceeds for show and zine are going to Forward Together and Sister Song. Great causes, and I’m hoping to contribute to the zine. Won’t you join me? If you’d like to join in, drop me an email at aspeed2 at gmail dot com, and I will pass on the submission email.

A snippet of the work in progress Holden sequel …

I’m still working on the Holden sequel, which is too damn long. So I thought I’d treat everyone curious about it to updates and snippets. Such as this one. I will give you no context. This is simply a random part. Sorry, but I think it’s more fun that way.This bit has Roan and Chai in it, with a cameo by a couple of hockey players. ** “Roan!” Grey exclaimed, sounding remarkably like an excited little kid. And unlike an excited little kid, Grey grabbed Roan in a bear hug and lifted him off his feet. He even shook him around a bit, like he was no more than a rag doll. Roan looked both amused and slightly ruffled at this. “Put him down before you hurt him, you big oaf,” Scott said, with weary affection. That alone told Chai Grey had done...

Andy’s Best Albums of 2016 Playlist Roundup

Andy's Best Albums of The Year 2016 Playlist from notmanos on 8tracks Radio. I know it seems a little early for a best records of the year compilation, but these last couple of months of terrible 2016 have been dedicated to distracting myself from thinking about reality. And what better solace is there than music? More than a few great musicians died this year too, which seemed like adding insult to injury. (David Bowie, as usual, knew exactly when to go. That bastard! Always ahead of the rest of us. If someone told me he was The Master, I wouldn’t be the least bit surprised.) But, putting Bowie’s prescience aside, it actually was a pretty good year for music. A lot of people released good albums, and some even released great albums. In no particular...

Happy holidays! A new playlist for you!

Not a huge holiday person myself, but if you celebrate, I hope you have a good one. But for all my fellow grouches, enjoy this themed collection of songs that don’t say anything positive about families or holidays. Or both. Or neither. Andy's Anti-Holiday Playlist from notmanos on 8tracks...
