I seem to be everywhere but here, My Blog Can Beat Up Your Blog, these days. As my partners in writing crime, Linda aka @modmomelleroy and Jen aka @jenkehl grow our music site www.raisedontheradio.com I’m pleasantly surprised by where that’s going. Eight days ago, I saw Lisa Marie Presley (@lisapresley )in concert at one of my favorite venues, Eddie’s Attic ( @eddiesatic ) in Decatur, Georgia. The review I wrote for ROTR on Friday http://raisedontheradio.com/2013/11/14/lights-performance-time-declare-lisa-marie-presley-woman/ was picked up by Lisa Marie’s personal website yesterday http://www.lisamariepresley.com/news/328-after-a-lights-out-performance . It has over 1,000 likes on her Book o Face page https://www.facebook.com/lisamariepresley .
My other internet writing criminal syndicate, Linda again, www.elleroywashere.com , of course, and Natalie aka @singingfool1224 , is preparing for the launch of Lefty Pop, a politics and pop culture website in early January. For now, you can follow us on The Twitter @lefty_pop or follow us on the Book with all of the Faces https://www.facebook.com/leftypop . We are hoping to be Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity’s worst nightmares.
My friend Kath aka @katstheory has a music site of her own she writes for. They asked me to review one of the best John Lennon books I’ve read, Lennon: The Man The Myth The Music by NPR music critic Tim Riley. It’s 661 pages I read a couple of years ago so if you need a synopsis and a reason to check out a cool site called Earth Hertz aka @earthhertz check out my review there, posted today http://www.earthhertzrecords.com/2013/10/lennon-by-tim-riley/ .
We’ll get back to more regularly scheduled programming this week, with new story episodes of Silas and Olive, on the run in Florida in 1989 through prompts for Trifecta Writing aka @trifectawriting, Velvet Verbosity aka @velvetverbosity and 100 word song. If you would like to pick the song for this week, leave your request in the comments or tweet me – @lanceburson.
If you felt like a passenger on a weird ride with this mostly self-serving “hey look at me” post, then so did I. Remember Dr. Seuss’ last book, “Oh The Places You’ll Go!”. Well please click on the links provided, “Will you succeed? Yes, you will indeed. (98¾% guaranteed.)”
Also, look below, and go buy some books for Christmas, please.
Here’s Iggy Pop.
