Facebook Live Event with R. C. Bray!

Good friend and narrator/performer of my books R. C. Bray will be hosting a Facebook Live event on December 27th at 8pm EST.  I intend to be there if at all possible (I’ll be driving home from visiting family on that day) as a spectator.  If you’d like to ask questions of a major audio book industry icon, this would be your chance.

My friend Evan reports on youthful nostalgia, B movies, and bygone trailblazers who hung it all out there.

From the Wastes...

Back in 1992, my Friday night ritual was to run to the gas station just off base and grab a pint of Ben & Jerry’s New York Super Fudge Chunk and a can of Cheezums. I’d then get back just in time to settle in and watch the most glorious Public Access Television show ever created… Attack of the Killer B’s. It was like some kind of mad experiment resulting from a twisted tryst between Elvira, Svenghouli, and a voyeuristic MST3K poking its head in and seeing just what the hell was going on.

I ended up with about 8 VHS tapes filled with static’y episodes (all I had was rabbit ears and tin foil!), but I’d watch those tapes over and over again for the…

I’ve been looking for a site like this for a while.  FINALLY, I’ve found my people!

Awesome, thoughtful articles on the end of everything.  It’s refreshing to see others putting as much thought into this stuff as me.  It helps me to realize I’m perhaps not as nuts as originally suspected.
