Cool. You should post in the Author's Thread and see if it's okay with Jim and blab. blab has some books available in paperback and for Kindle.

I'm still reading the Clare Winger Harris anthology in between dribs and drabs of other things. It's pretty amazing. The one I read today is about a young, handsome doctor who has it all, but who has the bad luck to be involved in a couple of serious accidents, losing a limb each time. In his trauma, he decides that every time he loses a piece of his body, he loses a piece of his soul. When his girlfriend leaves him for his best friend, he disappears for several years to test his theory-- he comes back as a heartless cyborg bent on revenge. He's defeated by the friend and police, but with his dying breath he realizes that the artificial limbs and organs didn't cost him his soul, but he did it to himself. And this was published in the 1920s.
Yeah, she's amazing, isn't she. I found her book in the room I named the libtary cuz I don't use it as a bedroom. And I will have a splendid time sorting my books.

Yeah, that collection was an interesting discovery. Between ebooks and print-on-demand, this is a great age for rediscovering forgotten literature.

I just finished reading Nam a Rama, it is a wild example of military humor. Phillip Jemmings is brilliant. And now I am reading Paula Caplan's When Johnny and Jane Come Marching Home How All of Us can Help Veterans. Paula is one of my favorite people. She interviewed me a while back, and I met Bill Shinsky cuz she interviewd us at his Coachlella Valley Art Center. She is part of the Listen to a Veteran project. She sets us up with listeners who have agreed not to interru[t us, and not to judge us, let us talk. I have done this twice and it's really great to be listened to like that. I'm gonna bring the book in to show my va psychologist. She says we are not mentally ill, we have a reasonable response to war. Bill is another favorite. his sergeant used to tell him Bill you're no soldier and Bill would tell him I keep telling you that. :lol:

Wasn't that "Listen To A Veteran" project supposed to be on DVD? Was it ever released?

I don't know, must find out.

And now that I didn't get to see 12 Strong with my friends in LA at a Blue Star Theater, or anywhere in a Blue Star Theater, I'm gonna print up the information and present it to Congressman Ruiz at his 3rd annual Vetetans University on March 3ed. He is a great Congressman and his dream is to make the Coachella Valley the most veteran welcoming community in America. He has done a fine job of it and he can do this too. With the crappy va fiduciery controlling my money and not letting me have any of my own cash, I need a movie theater where I can go free. Hmm, wonder if I can make a PSA about them and tell veterans to stear clear of them, that would be better than putting them in my novel, but they're going in there too.


Now that I've finsished the book, I really want to see the movie, and I want to read the book he wrote aobut the Tet Offensive.

That's it. I remember that "Formerly..." message. I don't see anything about a DVD, though.

I described the listening session as " enlifting".
Hey, listen to Bill Shinsky too. He runs the Coachella Valley Art Center and he's really good.

That was an interesting clip. I like how he mentions that the project isn't just for people who feel they have experienced massive trauma, because just being at war is trauma enough by itself.

I was surprised to hear that he was scared. He is the calmest Vietnam veteran I know.

It's interesting how he didn't even realize it because it was so constant.

I'm just working my way through all the Jeeves and Wooster stories by P.G. Wodehouse which I'm sure you all know a good deal better than I do. The perfect bedtime read after a demanding day at work: funny, thrilling, yet you can stop any time.

I know of them, but I've never read them. I think I may have gotten a collection for my Nook or Kindle, though.

And he was a volunteer at the Veterans Universary so I got to see him. We had a good long chat. I am feeling that I am getting my real life back.

And Lisa was not there but her assistant was and she and I are still good, she wasn't part of the crowd that dumped me into the va fiduciary's filthy grasp.

I will be singing Air Force Blue and a french rock and roller chansons de blue, so I'm thinking a German folk or any kind of popular song with lots of blue in it, can you help me out?

I replied and now I can't find it.

I love PG Wodehouse.

Can you help me, huggle, I need a song, a folk or any kind of popu;lar song in German with blue in it. I am learning guitar to accompany myself. I'll be singing three songs, One is Air Force Blue, another is a Frech rock and roller I rmember from when I was in high school chanson de blue. I think a German song with blue will be just right.

Lets see if thhis one will post/And ther it is the one I tried to post before. :veryhappy:
