In no particular order...
--Mark Danielewski, House of Leaves. It's messed up, it parallels my favorite album of 2000 (his sister Poe's Haunted), it challenges what a printed book should look like and how it should be read, you can spend years analyzing it and still come up with different meanings to the plot, and overall, it's a hell of a lot of fun to read. One of my all-time favorites, it's a great example of writing outside the usual boundaries of fiction.
--Dave Sim, the Cerebus comic series. Sure, Sim kind of turned into a nutcake in the last quarter of the series (he's really calmed down since then), but I have to give him credit and mad props for creating fascinating characters with depth (even if they end up being jackasses), fascinating art (especially when Gerhard jumped on board), and writing a finite three-hundred issue story arc during a time when comic books rarely did so. I learned a lot about character interaction in this series, actually.
--Katsuhiro Otomo, AKIRA. Another comic series, yes, but one that was absolutely brilliant in its execution. One of the best SF/supernatural storylines I've ever read. Visually stunning and an excellent example of storytelling from a somewhat different culture. From this series I learned about ensemble casting, unconventional POVs, and how to keep the story going even when the scene is completely internal.
--Douglas Adams, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. My favorite of the series is still Book 2, The Restaurant at the End of the Universe, but the first book is filled with some of the best ridiculous, self-mocking British humor out there.
--Erich Maria Remarque, All Quiet on the Western Front. This one always stayed with me since I first read it during the summer of 1989--probably one of the first classics I read in high school that wasn't assigned to me! It's fascinating in its delivery, both sad and lighthearted at the same time as the characters try to make the best out of a really bad situation.
--JRR Tolkien, The Lord of the Rings. Believe it or not, I never read this all the way through until just recently, around 2006. [I attempted it in junior high around 1985, but had little patience/attention for it at that time.] I think reading it as an adult made more sense, as I was able to grok what he was trying to do with it. It's by no means a perfect story, but still one of the best examples of detailed worldbuilding out there.
--Ira Robbins, The Trouser Press Record Guide. I no longer own this, but the 1986 edition was the one that blew the doors off for me in regards to music collecting, rock music in general, and informing me on just how many albums I was expected to have in my then-growing collection. My listening habits changed drastically after I read this book--and yes, I did take notes.
--Madeline L'Engle, A Wrinkle in Time. My sister handed this to me when I was a kid and thought I'd like it. That I did! It was probably my first introduction into reading SF/Fantasy, and still one of my favorites.
--Simon Reynolds, Rip It Up and Start Again. A relatively recent book by a brilliant music writer, it's about the post-punk scene of the late 70s-early 80s, but in the process it explains how that scene eventually morphed into the early years of alternative rock as we now know it. This was the first book I picked up when I started planning writing about the college rock years with Walk in Silence, and it really helped piece a lot of things together for me.
--Lee J Hindle, Dragon Fall. Yep, I've talked about this one before. The book that got me writing seriously in the first place--the one where I thought "hey--I could do this too."

Or more to the point, to dwell on things only when necessary.
This year I gave up doing a lot of things that were either a waste of time or were distractions.
One was giving up reading the news. I did not do this to become an ignoramus, far from it; it was that I had become keenly aware of the quality (or lack thereof) of the most popular news sites (CNN, Yahoo, etc.). It frustrated me how it was no longer reportage--the profession I know quite well through my father--and had devolved into the quest for site hits. Go to any high-traffic news site, and you'll see it: the headline/link is no longer informative, it's a teaser to get you to click through. The article itself teases you, in its attempt to get a rise out of you. There are blatant and often false assumptions bandied about--the latest being the shock and horror of Obama's selfie during the Mandela memorial the other day being one. It seems these sites no longer aim to inform so as to get site hits and thus more revenue from the ads that pop up on those pages. And when you get the populace in a dither about some perceived peccadillo so that they spend all day yelling at and accusing each other of being stupid poopyheads in the comments section and Twitter, well...their job is done. It's pretty much made a mockery of actual writing and reporting.
That's not to say that I've put an embargo on all news ever--more that I now choose my sources carefully. Call me stuck-up if you want, but good captivating writing is a hell of a lot better than the blustery cheapshot. This is in addition to my resolution over the past few years: I don't need to be plugged in 24/7. I'm still informed...I'm just no longer stuck in the feedback loop.
I also forced myself to ignore that "but you haven't written anything new in years!" voice in my head. The thing is, I have written new things--especially this year, when I heavily revised the trilogy. There are completely new scenes in there, right alongside some of the oldest scenes written from years ago. I realized that it was more important for me to address writing priorities before I went off onto the storyline playground; I've been sitting on this trilogy for over a decade, and I felt it was high time I brought it to the next level.
Which brings me to the next thing: future plans.
As I've mentioned before, I'm frantically getting A Division of Souls and its synopsis ready for submission to Angry Robot Books. I have no idea whether or not it'll be accepted, but I'm super excited about this, as AR publishes some of my favorite books, and I've a feeling the trilogy would be a nice fit with them.
More to the point, 2013 was a year where I learned a hell of a lot about what makes a good manuscript. A few years ago I opined about being stuck in that "OK Plateau", where I had a decent story but lacked the "oomph" to make it to a professional level. In the comments I'd said that one of the problems was that I had too vague of a goal--I wanted to be a pro writer, and...yeah. So I spent the time between then and now working on a more concrete goal: not to just be a pro, but to consciously write on a pro level, to consciously revise the trilogy into something publishable, and most importantly, to keep my writing up at that level.
And thus the last year and a half focusing solely on the revision of the trilogy, the Welcome to Bridgetown website, and all the constant reading, rereading, learning, and relearning the craft.
So! What does 2014 have in store for me?
Well, regardless as to whether or not the trilogy gets accepted by Angry Robot or some other publisher or agency, next year is the year of Moving Forward. I'll be expanding on the Mendaihu Universe (my new name for the trilogy's setting) with new novels and perhaps short stories, maybe even applying some of what I've learned to newer projects as well. I'll be updating Welcome to Bridgetown with more insights and commentary over the year. And once I finally finish the 'Blogging the Beatles' series, I'll also be posting music insights and commentary over at Walk in Silence. And on a more personal level, I'll be working more on my morning words, poetry, art, and music. The finished, posted output for those last three may not be as high as the previous, but I do hope to keep more of a schedule.
Yes, there is a theme here: consistency.
That will be the main goal for 2014: to maintain this higher standard across the board.

A while ago, I was asked to contribute a chapter to an exciting new book called “The Secret Atlas of North Coast Food,” published by the Heavy Table, and masterminded by James Norton.
I’m a huge fan of Heavy Table – possibly my favorite foodie site in the Midwest – and I love James’ work, so I leapt at the chance. I decided I’d write about, cheerlead for and generally champion Madison’s South Park Street restaurants.
This coming Thursday, December 12, I’ll be signing copies of “The Secret Atlas of North Coast Food” at Madison’s Kitchen Gallery, along with my pal Sean Weitner, and Lindsay Christians (Madisonians with other chapters in it) and James Norton hisself. I’ll also be handing out samples of my pal Markus’ chocolates. They’re really quite good, you know.
The event runs from 5 pm to 7 pm, and if pressed, why yes, certainly I’ll sign other, non-“North Coast” things. But the book itself is gorgeous, the writing and illustrations are terrific. Look, I’m not gonna lie here – I’m really happy with how my chapter turned out. (I have no pretensions of ever becoming a food writer again, but I really wanted to make my little bit of this good.)
So, come on down, hang out, have some chocolates, get some stuff signed! Hope to see you there!

Living in the midwest for a few years now, I've met a lot of nice people. When I first arrived, I embraced St. Louis as the antithesis of New York City: affordable, spacious, polite, and importantly, unpretentious. Now that I know it better, I see its downsides as well. A big one is racism, but I'll address that another day.
What I've been noticing lately is how kind and gentle people can be in person, but when they reveal their politics, they turn out to be quite ungenerous, if not downright hateful.
This seems somewhat decent: whatever your beliefs, still show respect for your fellow human being. It's usually called "tolerance". The crazed radical view is opposite: stick to your guns. If you have strong feelings about something, act to your convictions. If that means coming across as an asshole to some sinner, so be it. Their feelings are secondary The Truth.
As you might expect, I don't subscribe to the latter viewpoint. But the "tolerance" approach is starting to wear thin. Are all these people who are outwardly nice to me while holding fundamentally opposed opinions lying through their teeth every time they smile? Is it not important to keep one's actions and values consistent?
Do I recommend all the bigots and zealots stop being kind? No, obviously not. Most believe "common decency" is a good thing. So if consistency is important, but your values aren't respectful, there's really only one solution left. Change your values. Stop being two-faced and teach yourself that kindness and respect are a higher calling than judgement and condemnation.
Barbarians follow their hate. Civilized people learn to live together in peace.

--My primary work these last few weeks, when not working on The Persistence of Memories revision, has been getting the submission package ready for Angry Robot's Open Door. The last few days have been spent working on a two-page synopsis. I probably could have approached this one a little better by creating one from scratch; instead, however, I took a previously created eleven-page outline and edited the hell out of it until it made the two page limit. [ dancinghorse, you may remember this outline from a previous read. I've since learned my lesson in brevity. :) ] The lesson learned here is to shape the synopsis down to the barest of detail. The second lesson is to work from the ground up, not from the roof down...it's probably a hell of a lot easier!
--Despite a few coding bumps in the road, I am now building what I'm calling my official author website. It's focused primarily on the trilogy and its universe (which I have now dubbed the Mendaihu Universe) and can be found here if you're curious. I'm currently having a few coding issues (on the WordPress side), but hopefully those should be ironed out soon.
--I'm attempting to do my daily 750 Words again, after not doing so for some time. I often do them during work hours, and Q4 has finally quieted down enough that I can squeeze it in over the course of the day. I'm hoping this will clean out the cobwebs and get some new creativity up and running again.
--It's December, and many music magazines have already posted their best-of-year posts, so I should probably start doing mine as well. Maybe start building the year-end compilation too.
--This also means that it's time for me to do a retrospective on what I've worked on writingwise this year, and my plans for next year as well. Let's just say future plans for 2014 are going to be quite productive, and hopefully fun and fruitful as well!
It of course reminds me of Thanksgiving 1995, when I lived in Allston--one of the coldest weekends in the Boston area, when the apartment manager left and spent the night at relatives. That was significantly worse, as I had to complain quite loudly to my landlord (who relented and gave me a space heater, natch), and I actually put up a bedsheet over my bedroom window to keep out the quite strong draft. No lie--that sheet billowed like a sail all winter. Thankfully, though, our present situation is INFINITELY better, our landlord is a very cool guy, and the maintenance guy's cousin/assistant lives next door if there's any other issues. So there's that. ;)

There is a legend, a legend of two men -- if you can call them that -- who lived in the olllllld west and made a podcast out of wood, rocks, and clover honey. How? Well, it was the 1800's, so it was lacking in some technical ways, but goddamn it, spend a little less time "how"ing and a little more time "wow!"ing! Yep, roll your tumbleweeds on over, and set your frilly daisycrumpets down for a thrilling installment of the Cinema Sewer podcast, where Cinema Sewer magazine author Robin Bougie and sinister cowpoke Tim Hulsizer rustle up some movie and counterculture-type yarns for yer listening pleasures.
This episode finds those filth-desperadoes going on about the 1970s Gorilla-rape adult movie from Canada -- Sexcula, an angry visit from Allen Pacino, a recollection of tape-trading and VHS bootleggers, and an inside look at the way Bougie has spent his adult life wrestling with Feminism and how it relates to fantasy.
It's #1 here at our itunes page:
