Monday Cornucopia of #Crime

Despite my dedicated devotion to idleness, I nevertheless manage to get some things done now and then (seldom what I am supposed to be getting done, of course). Today several spring into the ether at once and a few over the weekend. At Punk Noir Magazine — which you should be reading it every day!…

Holidaze & News

You may guess from the infrequency of posts that I am extremely busy. But I have found time to enjoy myself, too.

Happy Birthday to a Legend (or two)

I should be on my way across the Atlantic at present, but I have to be sure to say a happy birthday to a couple of legends today: Tony Hancock and Paul D. Brazill. They both make me laugh like a crazy person, so if you don’t know them already, you shouldn’t waste any time…
