If you've ever wondered what it's like to run a magazine or how crazy my personal life is, be sure to read the behind-the-scenes peek at the daily trials and tribulations of running True West. Culled straight from my Franklin Daytimer, it contains actual journal entries, laid out raw and uncensored. Some of it is enlightening. Much of it is embarrassing, but all of it is painfully true.
In addition to this current journal, my early journal entries show the rocky road and money lost in the True West Business Timeline.
Bob's biography - The Unvarnished Truth
April 11, 2012Did a tight tracing of Schieffelin Hall this morning to send to my color guy in Cal. Want to see what the color palette is going to be for the O.K. Project. I want it to be Extremely O.K. but I'll settle for Just O.K. Examples to follow.
Speaking of Tombstone, here's a sneak peek at the next issue, which is at the printer even as you read this:
Power went out last night right in the middle of watching the Lawman. I was shooting art reference off the TV when it went down. Man, that John Russell has a great face. So rugged. Little bit of Burt Lancaster with a pinch of Clark Gable thrown in.
Turns out a transformer blew up across the creek, over by Cal and John's casita. Went over there and sat in the dark in their kitchen and had a glass of wine. Came home around nine. Power came back on at ten.
"I never knew a lawman who got old."
—John Russell, as "Lawman"
