October 30, 2007 Bonus Bonus Bonus Blog
Did a fun radio interview last night on the BIG KIIC, 96.7 FM in Albia, Iowa. Rich Grimes is the host of "Just Start Talkin'" and, I did. We had a blast talking about all things Iowa and Western. I met Rich at the John Wayne Birthday Bash in Winterset, Iowa last May. Good guy. Loves our magazine and the West and promoted the hell out of us to all of southern Iowa.

Royal Wade Kimes surprised me with his latest CD which has a cut (#15) called, "The Apache Kid," inspired by his visit to Cave Creek earlier this year. Over a tall cool one at Coco's in Scottsdale I told him the story of the Kid's escape and he started tapping his fingers on the table and kind of went into a trance, crying out In-din snippets with a bitchin' beat. The resulting song is major groovy (and soundtrack worthy), and I'll try and get it up on the site as soon as production gets a breath (they are on deadline for the Second Annual Source Book which goes to press next week).

Zoning in on the wordless graphic novel and the inherent visual potential of the medium. I've been thinking in scenes rather than words (besides, that's The Top Secret Writer's domain). Gee, I wonder if Walt Disney has anything to say about that?
