June 1 Update

Can’t believe it’s June! Only JUST finished up second edition of 𝑬𝒂𝒔𝒕𝒆𝒓𝒏 π‘Ύπ’‰π’Šπ’•π’† π‘·π’Šπ’π’† and sent it to print, and started layout for π‘·π’‚π’•π’„π’‰π’˜π’π’“π’π’…. A bit behind. 1st full ep of 𝑯𝒆𝒓𝒆 π‘ͺπ’π’Žπ’†π’” 𝒕𝒉𝒆 π‘Ύπ’†π’Šπ’“π’…π’ 𝑷𝒂𝒓𝒂𝒅𝒆 is out, to good reviews (about 30 views/listens so far). Next one featuringΒ The “Great” DemonioΒ on Monday. 𝑷𝒂𝒕𝒓𝒆𝒐𝒏 patrons have already seen it. Upcoming eps are very exciting.

For books and writing, π‘°π’Žπ’‘π’–π’π’”π’† π‘ͺ𝒐𝒏𝒕𝒓𝒐𝒍𝒍𝒆𝒅 is chugging along, π‘­π’–π’π’π’š 𝑺𝒑𝒆𝒍𝒍𝒔 𝒕𝒐 𝑭𝒐𝒐𝒍 𝒀𝒐𝒖𝒓 π‘­π’“π’Šπ’†π’π’…π’” has its first illustration sketches from Daniel Milco, and the musical play 𝑻𝒉𝒆 π‘©π’‚π’„π’Œπ’π’Šπ’π’† is starting to take shape (VERY early days!). Most likely after PW comes out I’ll work on re-release and expansion of π‘ͺ𝒉𝒖𝒏𝒏𝒆𝒍 𝑺𝒖𝒓𝒇𝒆𝒓 𝑰𝑰 while working on IC and the cozy mystery I was working on when ‘Rona shut down my writing circuits.

Doing some work with Mynheras now, too!

Theatrically, I plan to bring Gonzo Rising to the theater this summer, as well as a return of π‘Ίπ’Šπ’π’π’š π‘Ίπ’π’‚π’Ž and 𝑳𝒆 π‘­π’π’π’–π’“π’Šπ’”π’‰. And most likely a return to π‘΅π’Šπ’ˆπ’‰π’•π’Žπ’‚π’“π’†π’” 𝒂𝒏𝒅 π‘«π’“π’†π’‚π’Žπ’”π’„π’‚π’‘π’†π’” in October. And some sΓ©ances, too, mustn’t forget Liar’s Seance! And possibly a new winter show?

Continuing work with Kiki Cabaret SLC of course, and supporting such shows as Love Yourself! A BTS themed Burlesque Show coming up!

All while somehow, magically, keeping my time parceled out so I have enough downtime to not be constantly skirting burnout. Which, you know, means a lower paycheck, as almost none of these things is making me any money (for now). But pretty okay with how things are going.

As long as I keep up with my mental health regimen. Which I am doing pretty well with.

NEEEED to get back to Maine soon, though. If only I could keep some money in savings without, you know, needing new TEETH or something.

[Could seriously use some organization support and social media management support. Might be time to hire an assistant.]

Hm, need an image for the algorithm…how about screenshots of the first page of a google vanity search?

Here Comes the Weirdo Parade

This new Podcast is coming to YouTube and everywhere fine podcasts are found!

Scix brings weirdos aboard to discuss the power of weirdness, the challenges and fun of being a weirdo in our society. Weirdo in this case is a badge of honor! Anyone who is marginalized, outsider, artistic or dreaming can be called a weirdo, for any silly reason. Those of us who embrace the moniker tend to band together.

The first episode airs May 30 (2022) and features the Whistling Swans, a weirdo enby folk duo that’s won the hearts of the Gonzo Rising crowd!

We are the
WEIRDOS:
The outsiders,
the edge cases,
the marginalized,
the artists,
the dreamers.
We are part of
what makes life
worth living.
And we deserve
a damned
PARAdE
