Going Main Stream: Rocky Top Tennnessee The Magazine

So this is a little self advertisement to folks who I thought may and or may not be interested. A magazine that I helped found, and that I’ve been working with for the last year is finally going to print. Pre-orders are now available.

I’m not asking everyone to run out and buy it (although I won’t lie that would be awesome) but pass the word if you would be so kind to folks, and let them know that our magazine is out there and is available to those whom would be interested.

We have put a lot of time and work in to it, and while the subject matter may not be something that everyone I know enjoys I figure at least a handful of ya’ll might be interested (College Football). Here are some of the magazines features:

  • 116 full color pages of nothing but the Vols.
  • 99.9% ad-free.
  • Written by Vol fans for Vol fans.
  • Available as a print version, a Kindle version, and a download-able e-book.
  • Stories written by yours truly and many others

 

The print version is available for pre-order here

If you are one of the many folks who prefer to have digital format, we will be on Amazon.com for PDF and Kindle systems.

If you’re local and you actually think it might be worth while I’ll even sign the durn thing for you. Who knows maybe I can become the next Bill Simmons (doubtful, but a guy can dream can’t he?)

Meanwhile I appreciate your help, I hope everyone is doing well and if you do decide to buy the magazine I hope you find it enjoyable!

My thanks to Joel , and the rest of the guys at RockyTopTalk for giving me the invitation to participate in this dream opportunity!

And as Time Life used to say: read the book!-order here

 

 

It’s (Almost) Football Time in Tennessee

The heat is unbearable. Dry heat my ass.
Over 100 today and more to come this week.

But it’s July. Next month is August. It’s almost time. My heart beats faster just thinking about it.

As Volunteers, we have struggled this past year. Our last seasons have been anything but story book. Dooley however, has indeed made a difference, and I think anyone who bleeds orange and white can agree with that.

It’s been a tough time being a Vol lately.

Basketball program on the rebound. Our Athletic Director gone. It’s not been easy and it seems like the hits just kept coming.

But here’s a thought

It’s Great! To be! a Tennessee Vol!

Ya’ll know I love my Vols.

You also know I love the fella’s over at Rocky Top Talk.

Well they recently sent out a quest for volunteers to give them a hand and you know I had to throw my name in that hat figuring “Hell, why not.”

And as Eric would say, rubberneckers let me tell you I was selected. I guess they figured they could not get a more Vol obsessed lunatic, even if he lives in another state. But whatever the reason I am honored.

Now I ain’t doing anything huge. I’m doing a very small thing over there. Just watching for leads for the main writers, but its still awesome just the same. These fella’s are the know-all’s of Knoxville insofar as I am concerned. The most calm, rational and straight forward reporting you get out of the area.

So a chance to work with them, even as tiny as what I’ll be doing, is very cool.

So keep yer eyes peeled over at RTT folks. I’ll be cross posting stuff here as I always do, but I’m happy to say they are letting me be part of the show.

    Steampunk Girl

    Let’s class up the place a bit shall we? Steam punk ladies have always held a special place in my heart. I think because of instead of frail, fragile creatures steam punk fiction ensconces smart, strong, inventive, and independent women (Such as Polly Perkins from Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow, Mina Murray League of Extraordinary Gentlemen or Evelina Cooper, A study in Silks) I think for guys, or at least guys who think, its an attractive and alluring mix. Classy without being trashy, more vixen instead of vamp. A tease of what could be, what may be and what would be, but she just may kick the hell out of you for making a move but kiss you to make up for it later.

    reblogging here because i can see this being relevant to anyone who’s ever tried to get out of an abusive relationship

    Reblogging because that last comment made me reread the whole thing in a new light and realize this could be vital information. So, putting it out there for everyone, and hoping no one ever really needs it.

  • I want to know you. You seem like someone worth knowing. Every day I feel like I’m surrounded by people with hard edges and sour faces but I get the sense that you’re different. Too often people seem to think that they have the answers to everything. Their faces are trapped in permascowls and they can’t be bothered with anything besides their own narcissism. You aren’t like that. You still ask questions. You’re still looking for the answers.
