Ahhh, crap

Holy shit, I'm alive.

I really am. I just haven't been feeling too great since the end of the Huge Motherfucking StarWarsTourFromHell, and all of my feeble energies have been directed toward reassembling my shattered life and trying to develop a head of steam on CAINE BLACK KNIFE.

Which I have.

Listen: nobody panic if I'm not around from time to time. I'm really fucking durable (not unlike some of the people I write about), and while being me is not exactly an endless weekend at Disney World, I still enjoy it enough that I will continue doing so until somebody stops me by force.

By the way, have I mentioned that Disney World is really cool? The people down there treated Robyn and me like rock stars, and the rides were great (the DW Space Mountain has to be the single niftiest rollercoaster I've ever been on, and I've been on more than my share), and Animal World or whatever the hell it's called is the coolest zoo I have ever been in, and I've been in more than my share of those, too. In fact, we had such a great time we're going back in 2006, after they finish Everest the Forbidden Mountain -- a rollercoaster that loops INSIDE a scale-model replica of Mount Everest that's gotta be 300 feet tall . . .

And was that really Gregg friggin' Dale posting down there? Holy shit. It's only been what, twenty-five years since I've seen you? And at least five or ten since we've exchanged emails, huh . . . ?

For those of you wondering if I went to high school with you, Gregg will attest that it just ain't so. Trust me -- if you'd gone to school with us, you'd remember. Everybody does. For better or worse.

So anyway, I'm back, at least temporarily. I'll be available for questions, commentary and sage advice. Mostly I'll be working on CBK and waiting for the Downing Street Memo to get enough airplay that even the Republicans can no longer avoid impeaching our Cocksmoke-in-Chief.

Hey, it's good to see you back, man.

Totally with you on the Downing Street Memo...

What bugs the fuck out of me is that this story broke back in May, and no one has been doing anything about it.

Fucking bullshit media circus.

Looks like those assholes are finally gonna get their flag-burning constitutional ammendment, too.

MWS said...

Don't worry about the flag-burning thing. Amendments to the Constitution have to ratified by two-thirds of the state legislatures. Never gonna happen.

It's just a fucking stunt, that's all. They're just throwning meat to the rednecks.

MWS said...

Throwing. You know what I mean.

Yeah Matt, hurry up and get CBK finished so I can buy several copies and send them out as B-Day presents!

The Media meme will take it's time but the shit storm is coming.

It's good to see you back Matt. Long time reader, first time poster. Just thought I'd tell you that I think your Caine novels kick ass. It's great to hear your writing another one. Keep up the good work.

*pounce*

I was wondering what happened to you :P

I got my email update about the downing street thing a couple of days ago, it's starred so that I can go back and double check things. Between my e-signature on that puppy and a bunch of petitions that I signed with a bunch of other scientists bush's regime is going to start stalking me soon :P

(not so much, but you know, a girl can dream :))

Great to see you back Matt. In fact, I'm just passing through your town this weekend on my way to my new job.

Now hurry and finish up CBK.

I'll go against the grain:

take your time with CBK, make it just as awesome a read as your other Caine novels.

It is not heartening that a minority of warmongers and apologists represents the repudiation of international law in order to bring about the police state which has come to pass. This suggests that the deal between the Department of Defense and Halliburton unit Kellogg, Brown & Root can be seen in the light of the apparent fabrications which lead to the result of a pre-fascist atmosphere in America. So far, the influence of Leo Strauss brings about the flagrant lies promulgated by the political donor class. On the other hand, the apparent demise of "anti-Americanism" as a respectable means of stifling recognition of American imperialism represents the crushing of internal dissent in order to propagate the resurgence of White Supremacist ideologies.

Good to see you survived the book tour, Matt. Now we can all look forward to that "New York Times Bestseller" starburst on the CBK cover, as well as the HD and BoT re-issues...
