A Product Review

I signed up to do a review of Sleek Black Sport Stereo Sound Headphones. They gave me a discount to do so, and requested I give them an honest review. I figured “What the hell. Can’t hurt, and it’s a cheap price.”

To be honest, I expected them to be rather pathetic. I mean, look at ’em:

They don’t look like much do they? But… They’re actually pretty damned good. They sit where they’re supposed to, and I forgot I was wearing them. The music volume is superb. I actually had to turn it down on my phone from where my others were set. The sound indicator on my cell goes from 1- 100. Before these, I had the volume set at 87. With these, 23.

I think you should go buy them. I’m going to buy another set, just in case I lose these.

A Little About Sweet Mother

There is an epic comedian named Rebecca Donohue. She’s feckin’ hilarious, and a good friend. I discovered her through her blog Sweet Mother. When I found out she had some videos of her stand up, well, I had to hunt them up. I’m including links to some of my favorites. I’ll also why I like them. They will take you to youtube.

Let’s get to them:

From “Solo Night”. “I married your father for the green card. It’s time you know.” When ever I’m feeling like crap, that line right there makes it all seem like it’s not as bad as I thought. The way she delivers it is exquisite.

From a show in NYC. “I would get an STD in the woods.” That one had me laughing my ass off. It gets me going every time. I actually had to stop writing this post for 20 minutes so I could laugh. My jaw aches, and my ribs hurt, I was laughing so hard.

This one isn’t a video, but I think you’ll like it anyway, it’s where you can buy her CD. Holy crap, a CD? How do I even know what that is? Oh, yeah. #oldasfeck

Rebecca is an awesome lady, funny as hell, and a great friend. Go check her out. You can connect with her on Twitter, her blog and on youtube.

I hope to get her over her for an interview soon. Maybe she’ll bring more of her clips. I’ll keep you updated.

Usually, I don’t like Mondays… [post 1 of 3]

…but today is actually a good one. Shocking, right? Today, we’re going to have three posts from me, this one and two others.

This first post is to remind you about an announcement I made last month (seen here). I had asked author R.S.Guthrie to guest post. Unfortunately, as sometimes happens, life got in the way. Mr. Guthrie got a bit swamped and he didn’t get a chance to write that guest post. He recently go a break and has informed me that he intends to send it to me by the end of the month. His guest post will touch on indie publishing and some of the tools he uses. Sounds epic, right?

If you haven’t checked out the books I mentioned in that last post (click the blue “here” above for the reviews), the links to get them are as follows: Black Beast and Lost. Click the links and buy them. Do yourself a favor by getting two great books and help R.S.Guthrie by supporting his work. Oh, click here to get to know him a bit better. He loves hearing from fans.

Later, I will post about the friendly adverb and I’ll add another Carter Blake update.

Coming soon…

In a few days, I’ll be hosting the excellent author, R.S.Guthrie! He’s written some fantastic books. I’ve had the pleasure of reading two of them recently, and they kept me entranced.

The first one, called Black Beast: A Clan of MacAulay Novel, is about a Denver Detective named Bobby Macaulay whose life has recently gone to the dogs: His beloved wife died of cancer, his long time partner was recently killed and he has lost his leg. As he battles with losing his faith, a long-lost secret comes to haunt him as evil strikes his hometown. I have the Kindle version and it kept me up all night, turning the pages. There is a scene in the book that had me say, “Damn!” It was completely unexpected. Black Beast is one of the best stories I’ve read recently. Give it a read for yourself. You won’t regret it.

The next one, called Lost, is the sequel to Black Beast and I had high hopes for it. For me, Mr. Guthrie surpassed them. Lost picks up shortly after the end of Black Beast and we find Bobby dealing with the aftermath of those events. Without giving too much away, let’s just say Det. MacAulay’s life is about to get much harder. He’s called to Idaho to aid his little brother, Jax, deal with a strange case of missing girls. It’s not long before Bobby is called upon to uphold his ancient family traditions. Like Black Beast, Lost had me up all night, turning the pages, eager to reach the end. Unlike last time, though, Lost had me shout three times, “No fricken way! C’mon!” You will enjoy this one just as much as the last, trust me.
