Support a Saint – Aaron G’s book is here!!!

Friday, March 31st, 2006

If you can’t help your friends, then what GOOD are you???

Aaron Golden (CotC to oldschool forum freaks) has been around BS since the beginning…and by that I mean genesis, folks. When I wanted to bounce early story arcs off of someone, I’d bend his ear first. When I was trying to find just the right name for everyone’s favorite troubled Arab, he brought the goods. And when I sought a respectful and gut-given chapter critique – mere hours after a new one was launched? His was the review I most craved.

So the least I can do – the most minimal of thanks, all things considered – is to trumpet his first officially published work – SWANN. Seriously – the guy got on Amazon before us (well, maybe Tobias beat him to it) , and apparently he’s already cranking through hundreds of copies and receiving generous dollops of kudos and critical acclaim!

The reviews are passionate and strong – reflecting the work within. I’ve known Aaron since this idea began to take serious root, and I’ve watched its creation literally transform him. Poetic, painful, and often profound, he has a unique style that mirrors a crystalline intellect…and a chaos-ridden heart.

I think more than a few of you can relate – this project being a blinding beacon of angst, and all – so buy the damn thing already. He deserves your fiscal support on the sheer courage and creative efforts alone.

And on a final note, peeps – Kim and I are off this weekend to the big Seattle Con‘ to spread the saintly gospel and raise a few glasses with old friends. Expect a newsletter early next week with show feedback, summer contest info (hmmmm?), and a hefty revelation or two…

Oh – and treats. Don’t forget the treats.

Word is Bond.

Gettin’ Jiggy with Jerusalem…

Just got a mail from forum lurker Shai-hulud with a sweet treat attached – seems that the often brilliant (but just as often ‘grumpy’) Warren Ellis has allowed a particular Live Journal group to scan and post one of his most beautiful Transmetropolitan stories – Another Cold Morning – in its entirety!

Click here…before he changes his mind after a shot or two of Jager. ;)

More structural and explosives experts…and a couple of surprise administration cameos. The last 20 minutes is particularly engaging and fact-CRAMMED.

Watch. Wonder. Wake up.

Doesn’t this look like fun?

(posted by tobias)
OK boys and girls, today’s Storytime Reading is about The Apocalypse. Now I know you’ve all heard about it, and maybe have some questions, and we at Broken Saints are here to help.

The photo at right is from a lovely page on Rotten which I found kinda fun. But the real reason I’m posting is to draw attention once again to the fantastic Maureen Farrell, who puts things in a very chilling current perspective for us as usual.

What can we do about all of this? Probably nothing, but at least we have the Daily Kos to put our helpless shame into searingly eloquent words for us… but (and this is the shameless plug part of the post, you knew it was coming) if you find yourself getting bored just hanging around waiting, the least I can do is suggest a suitable soundtrack

Almost as good as The Shining one from a few months back!

Wonder if Lynch is having a giggle right now?

Coke, Porn…and 9/11? Sheen gets TRULY ballsy.

Tuesday, March 21st, 2006

The original story was linked and seen by millions on Conservative mouthpiece The Drudge Report yesterday evening.

It was pulled soon afterwards. (I use that term, in relation to the WTC, with great irony)

Yes, yes…I know – Sheen’s a washed-up ‘thespian’ blessed by nepotism – with more relevance to journalistic hooks of adultery, drug use, and Heidi Fleiss than Neocon aspirations and Oil Wars – but this is symbolic of something.

A celebrity – someone with public appeal, for whatever reason it’s been ‘bestowed’ – has spoken out in an informed and educated manner on what many believe to be the greatest sham and propaganda atrocity of the last century. And when the same Republican spin-factory that breaks the culturally polarizing Lewinsky scandal posts the story, it gives it a frightening level of legitimacy. That it was immediately propagated by thousands of alternative news outlets causes even deeper waves to ripple across festering pool of public opinion. But the fact that the mainstream press has refused to comment in any way – even after repeated inquiries from a hardened media watchdog like Alex Jones – reveals just how powerful the machinery of spin, and the vaccuum of truth, is becoming.

Like this very comprehensive article trumpets – in New York Magazine, no less – this is our generation’s Kennedy Assassination.

But unlike past generations…are we going to do anything about it?

(UPDATE – A CNN Showbiz report does a piece on this Thursday night, and a few mags are starting to follow suit from reader pressure. Stay tuned….)
