Greetings readers of Brandonia! Whilst working on the site over the last couple of days, it came to my attention that a good deal of my Instagram feed includes workout updates. This prompted a thought to occur. That thought: Why not write some posts about fitness? Here's why: Because everybody and their grandma has a … Continue reading Brandonia Goes Fit-Freak!(?)
I "co-authored" a book with someone called "HowExpert" that's full of tips and tricks that I've learned over twenty-something years of doing rock shows on the road. It's available in both paperback and e-book from multiple booksellers. I don't have any royalty rights to this so sales won't help me financially, but they will help … Continue reading My Touring Guitarist’s Handbook
Hey Y'all, Just wanted to make a quick post to let you all know that I've started writing weekly posts for another WordPress site, space.porn (no, it's not an actual porn site - just a great spot for all things space nerds would be interested in, from news to entertainment to gaming), and I'd love … Continue reading Freelance News
Hey Brandonians. (I just made that up.) It's nigh on November, and to the writing/werd-nerd community, that means NaNoWriMo. For those unfamiliar with the phenomenon, NaNoWriMo is a web amalgamation for National Novel Writing Month, which is actually both a thing and an organization dedicated to promoting writing. I'll let them tell you about it on … Continue reading My NaNoWriMo Pledge

I've been working on getting my stuff moved into a new place, looking for a full-time teaching gig, growing the freelance side-hustle, adjusting to living with a family after not doing that for over twenty years, and I also have to redesign this website AGAIN because WordPress baited … Continue reading Where’s my damned story… Again!?!
<rant> I just went in to fill my coffee. The fourth cup this morning, thank you very much. I sit down at the kitchen table, and I open the Spokesman-Review's regional section. Paul Turner's column is on the front page along the left margin. Now, I don't read "The Slice," Turner's column, on the reg, … Continue reading No, YOU Shut Up, Paul Turner!
So, I'm at a point in my life where I'm turning a page (forgive the metaphor). What I mean is, I've just finished a five-year career in a small town in central Washington as high school English teacher. The decision to resign my position and relocate back to my hometown - Spokane, WA - was … Continue reading Revisiting Core Values
Hey everyone! First, I'd like to thank you for subscribing to Brandonia! Unfortunately it's been a while since I've posted a story. That's because school just got out, and I've been working on moving. Yes, that's right. I'm no longer bound to life in the desert, but am instead migrating to back the capital of … Continue reading Where’s My Story??
