An Adventure In Indianapolis Crime Fiction Novel 2009 (3)

People should keep in mind that by buying an official copy, the band will be paid and the quality of the music will be higher.

Still, in some cases, more knowledge helps sales rather than losing them.

Today, you can snatch up a free copy of my fiction novel An Adventure in Indianapolis, aka The Double Life of Tutweiler Buckhead. If you like it, you can also still buy a copy or buy one of my other works.

Reviews and commentary are welcome.

I personally like the album so much that I hope my son buys it for me for my 46th birthday.

Tool’s 10,000 Days

Age 27 years, I believe = 10,000 days of life experience. Like everyone else, I’m taking it day by day.

Perhaps there will be more posts about works I’m promoting. I have mixed emotions about self promotion. All successful artists do it a lot. When anyone wants me or my work, like everyone else, I like it. When people buy my stuff – at my present stage of development I take it personally in a good way. I feel like it means you really care: by The Double Life of Tutweiler Buckhead, or Five Big Questions in Life and show you actually care.

I am acutely aware, like everyone else is, that all promotional material and advertising is somehow as offensive when unwanted or undesired as it is loved when it is actually wanted. In that respect, it is a bit like romantic or sexual contact. Because of that, I feel …like that about it. I want my creative works to really sell and to be bought by those who will most like them…I don’t really want to sell them to those who will be grossed out.

Thanks for understanding!

Naming in the USA & in Germany

I didn’t even watch this prior to posting it. What I can tell you is that in Indianapolis hardly anyone other than my son was called Sven. I know that in Minnesota the descendants of other Scandinavians (NW Europeans) are often called Sven. Here in Germany, there are at least 4 Sven’s in the little village we live in.

I have been getting used to many of the other names. At first they sound like a joke someone has told you when a little drunk in a pub or something like that, but after a while you realize they aren’t kidding, and that’s what they are called.

Two of my first cousins are binationals of the USA and Norway. They grew up in California being called Tove and Hans which is strange, but when they go to Norway they have very normal names.

Have fun with this, may as well.

The Old New Rush – circa 1990 / #12 ?!… called a Tai Situpa

This was when at least one of Alex’s elder offspring was old enough that he is rumored to have been the kid in this video. Now a man in his 30s.

Welcome to this year 2013. Either it will be comforting or will make it worse knowing that the man in this video has been in the same line of work about as long as his more famous dominant quasi-partner the 14th Dalai Lama.

I still practice the boring old 10 Commandments that Moses the Jew swore he got from God about 3000 years ago. You probably do to.
