The Chartbombing Debriefing

The Chartbombing Debriefing

So yesterday was Chartbombing Day for The Lives of Dexter Peterson. If you’re reading this, I probably didn’t need to tell you because I emailed, Google Plussed, Facebooked, and tweeted about it a thousand times yesterday. Now the dust is settling from the virtual cash mob of yesterday and it’s time to see the results.

Today we bomb the charts!

In a nutshell, we’re trying to storm the iTunes and Amazon daily top-ten charts today. All it will take is a 99¢ commitment from you to make this happen! If we manage to push this song into either of the two charts, I’ll be sending out the exclusive Commentary Album to everyone who signed up

Good Morning, City I’ve Never Lived In

Good Morning, City I’ve Never Lived In

For the record: I’ve never actually lived in New York City. In fact, when I wrote the chapters about Dexter Peterson living in New York City, I lived in Nashville and had only been to the Northeast once or twice. Now that I live in Boston, I almost feel like a traitor for opening the

Who The Hell Is Dexter Peterson?

Who The Hell Is Dexter Peterson?

So my latest album (and novella, and graphic novel) is called The Lives of Dexter Peterson, in case you haven’t heard me raving about it lately. Sure, it’s a new batch of musics and quite possibly the best-sounding record I’ve ever made, but I don’t think I’ve ever really gone into detail about who the

Sex, Drugs, and… Comic Books?

Sex, Drugs, and… Comic Books?

I rarely post stories about drug dealers- something of an occupational hazard if you play bars -but this one caught my eye.  Apparently giant SUV’s with gold rims and an all-bass sound system aren’t enough for some dealers… Aaron Castro of Commerce City, Colo., was one of the leaders of a 41-person methamphetamine ring, which

Introducing the Robot Air Force

You have no idea how much I want a dozen of these things…

The Death and Return of Superman

The Death and Return of Superman

Yeah, that. I actually own the “Superman Is Dead” issue, naively thinking it might actually be worth something someday. In other news, I have a short stack of toilet paper with some pretty colors on it if anyone needs some… PS – Elijah Wood is my hero.

Limited Palette Doesn’t Mean Limited Potential

Limited Palette Doesn’t Mean Limited Potential

I swear, I don’t base my blog posts on what C.C. Chapman writes in the morning, but today it seems we’re writing about the same subject:  How limitations spark creativity.  Kudos for beating me to it, Mr. C., you win this time… The album I’ve been working on for the past year and a half

Comic Books Will Never Be Worth Anything, Right?

Comic Books Will Never Be Worth Anything, Right?

You probably collected something at some point in your life, right?  Runtt collects vinyl records, I’ve got a stash of old badges from conventions I’ve been to, I know a lot of dads that collected enough National Geographic issues to build a magazine fort.  God knows if you’re reading my blog there’s a good chance

I Dream of Strange Places

I Dream of Strange Places

Like you, I dream of fantastic things.  I call myself a space pirate captain because, in my mind, I want to be out there.  You know, that Shatneresque “out there” that implies boldly going and exploring strange new worlds and all that.  Maybe even the occasional green woman here and there, but mostly I’m interested
