Dead Love: Zombie Ninja Poetry

Dead Love: Zombie Ninja...

Clément likes to do his translations and occasionally, when the mood overtakes me, I scribble scraps of poems in my many notebooks. My reading of Bruce Boston’s Dark Matters inspired a scribbling frenzy. I wrote a bunch of poems, mostly about ninjas, and I think I’ll...
Dead Love: For the Poetic Zombie

Dead Love: For the Poet...

Last night I was swooning again (near-zombie occupational hazard) over the glittering, edge-of-the-cosmos-and-mind poetry of Bruce Boston in his recently released Dark Matters.  What can I say? The guy just blows me away. Boston is the author of 45 books and chapbooks and winner...
Dead Love: Central Valley Zombie Fog

Dead Love: Central Vall...

Ever walk around in a kind of zombie fog? There are a lot of ways to get there: drugs, alcohol, stress, illness, anxiety, past trauma … the list goes on and on. Personally, I’m quite comfortable in a fog. I’m especially fond of Tule fog, the swampy, soupy ground...

The three old men nodded, began talking amongst themselves. Clément sauntered toward Ryu, took a stand at his side. “I’ve won this round. You’re mine, now,” he whispered and put his right arm, the one with the fingerless hand, around the yakuza’s shoulders; the other arm...
Dead Love: Shout Out to Bonegirl

Dead Love: Shout Out to...

Zoe—Bonegirl—is virtually one of my best friends. She’s my online pal and I am hers. See her post: My Friend, Erin. So here’s a shout out to her: I love you, Zoe! One day your book will be out, and I will be celebrating you! Happy Thanksgiving to you, too! —Erin...
Dead Love: Zombie Thanksgiving Recipe

Dead Love: Zombie Thank...

If you want to know what makes Thanksgiving for a zombie, let me give it to you in one word: giblets. Giblet is a culinary term used to identify certain innards like the heart, liver, gizzard (we are talking birds) and other visceral organs. Also called offal, these parts are used...
Dead Love: Ozzy Osbourne’s Zombie Romp

Dead Love: Ozzy Osbourn...

Here’s a crazy little crossroads where George Romero’s horrific Dawn of the Dead zombie vision and the celebratory lyrics of mad, bat-eating, real life “Prince of Darkness” and perennial zombie boy, Ozzy Osbourne, come together in an lively little song about...
Dead Love: Zombies Love Harry Potter

Dead Love: Zombies Love...

All my little zombie friends as well as the big ones keen on Harry Potter spent the weekend sending Harry Potter sales through the roof. According to reports, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I grossed 125.1 million from November 19-21, smashing even its own franchise record...

10. Girl Crazy (2)...

“He is a devil and he wants our souls,” warned the second old man. “Oh, don’t be ridiculous,” scoffed Clément. “Can we put aside these absurd suppositions? What I want is for the drop to commence as planned. I want Ryu, here, to handle it. He will be working with me.” “Perhaps...
Dead Love: Homage to Marie Laveau

Dead Love: Homage to Ma...

I can’t leave New Orleans without a curtsy to Marie Laveau, the powerful “Voodoo Queen” who captured hearts, minds, and souls here. Born a free woman of color in New Orleans, she was famous as a Voudou practitioner who brought Roman Catholic beliefs and the African...
