Kevin is (writing about yourself in the third person (illeism) is a trip) an artist/writer/carpenter and frustrated songwriter living in Johnson City, Texas. His latest frustrating songwriting attempt is titled, "I Touched the Hand That Touched the Hand That Willie Touched", it, according to Kevin, is about falling in love for all the wrong reasons. Kevin is also a closet subversive. He claims he'll come out of the closet as soon as handguns are no longer popular. Kevin is a loud, obnoxious Texan and hopes that this will be held against him -- "It makes life so much harder and interesting when traveling outside of the Lone Star State." Kevin used to be a Golf columnist. He says life as a Golf columnist is not a whole lot different than life not as a Golf columnist. Kevin is sure that Jesus was indeed a Socialist. Kevin founded a short-lived organization, "FOXNO", with a mandate to get Fox News off the air. It got very little traction and as a result, over the ensuing years, Fox has propagandized a very significant portion of American television viewers, which, if unchecked, could destroy this country and the world. Kevin's Father thought Kevin was prone to hyperbole. Kevin wishes everyone would read "A Pilgrim At Tinker Creek", "In Watermelon Sugar" and all the poetry of Carl Sandberg. Kevin once, when drunk, argued, "America is not a city on a hill" for two hours, because "America is not a city, it's a rather large landmass that used to belong to Indians and porcupines!" Kevin once yelled out at a "Chicago' concert, "Steinbeck is God!" Kevin does not suffer fools or assh**es, usually. In 1969 he had a neighbor that was an assh**le who, although an assh**le, was enchanted with the Space Program and the prospect of man walking on the moon. Kevin and his best friend, Tommy, tied thread around a pinecone and at the designated hour, threw the pinecone over the neighbor's television antennae and shook it like hell -- the assh**le neighbor missed Neil Armstrong's walk on the moon. Kevin says that every time he watched Michael Jackson moonwalk he would be reminded of his assh**le neighbor and he would laugh like hell. Most folks that know Kevin would say that he hasn't changed. Kevin Lives in President Lyndon Johnson's hometown. Kevin, along with a few others, is trying to expose Lyndon Johnson for his equivocated humanity and possible good intentions. Kevin is pondering a short story about power and its surprises titled, "Kings Can Dance." When asked about current politics Kevin simply answers, "Trump is a turd." Kevin would like for me to express his gratitude to you for taking the time to read the above stuff and to say, "good be on you."

The Christian Strip Club I now understand how Nazi Germany came to be. We are watching it play out across our country. Those that care and those that truly love religious freedom, personal freedom and freedom of expression (patriots?) need to speak out -- loud and clear, in all ways at our disposal. Satire has traditionally been very effective.

A Rant and A Question How to not talk about climate change -- talk about Melania's t*ts, Donald's pecker, Hillary's e-mails. How did "the greatest country on earth", "the exceptional one", become a pathetic, freak laden sideshow. Many "lesser" countries on the planet are serious about the most important issue of the day.

The Election: This is a Culture War, Not a Battle of Economics We as a nation are presently in the throes of a second civil war. The first was fought over the preservation of a culture -- the economic and social culture of slavery. This time it is being fought over what we, Americans, want the culture of America to be.

Is a Bernie/Hillary Ticket Necessary? Hillary Clinton is the worst, most destructive candidate that could possibly run and or win against Donald Trump. Rush Limbaugh et al. have been deconstructing and demonizing her and her husband since their days in Arkansas. And, she has since built her own particular oeuvre to hate as Secretary of State...in spite of everything I've said above...

The Train Wreck That Is Becoming This Country Mr. Trump is not a "believer" in climate change. He claims it's a Chinese conspiracy. His followers are willing to take up the proverbial sword and go on a crusade against us that respect science. It's the same old story, umpteenth verse. I guess I should have kept my casual remark about the weather to myself. You know what they say about talking about politics and religion -- especially when they are one in the same.

Bernie's Story -- A New Ghost Dance The extreme sadness I felt when reading about the massacre of Native Americans at Wounded Knee was even more poignant for my young self because it was, in part, initiated by a story (The Ghost Dance) told by a shaman called Wavoka that promised a devastated people a new beginning and hope. Bernie is trying to tell such a story.

The Empathetic Neanderthal Empathy is what makes us special. Empathy distinguishes us from most of the animal kingdom. However, and unfortunately, empathy is becoming a rapidly atrophying appendage of our collective American consciousness.

I have decided instead to simply write a little...

The Failure of Religion in America The failure of the Republican party and society preventing the rise of Donald Trump and his angry, proud, bigoted supporters is apparently also a failure of large swaths of organized religion in this country. So much time has been spent condemning and accusing and defining the Other that much brick and mortar Christianity has lost all connection to Christ and is now nothing more than the handmaiden of fascism.

Quirky White Guys Robert "LaVoy" Finicum would probably be alive today if law enforcement hadn't treated the occupiers like quirky white guys... If I were the family of Robert Finicum I would be very angry with my government today -- he was crazy, a danger to himself and others, and the government simply treated him like a quirky white guy. We have become very tolerant of quirky white guys lately.

Lake Wobegon Shuttered: Garrison Keillor is Retiring I've been thinking and talking about the power of metaphor lately. Every Saturday morning it was in its full glory -- ringing through my shop, appropriately mingling with the clatter and the buzz. 'A Prairie Home Companion' encapsulated the best and the worst of what we are in farce and prose; sending us angels, dressed like us -- building empathy anew each Saturday on the streets of Lake Wobegon. Thank You Garrison

Surprised by Joy This is the first installment in a series of interviews I am going to try and have with, hopefully, a varied assortment of folks concerning their aesthetic awakening. My definition of aesthetics being what Santayana, Emerson and Thoreau defined as a "lived aesthetic." A combination of Nature and Spirit. I am going to steal from C.S. Lewis and title the series, "Surprised by Joy."

Art as a Vehicle for Dissent I feel sorry for many young folks living in this time. Their lives are in many ways bereft of connection. They have seven thousand friends on facebook but do they have a single song that they can hum that connects them in, what can be, a spiritual, cathartic way; explaining the churning in their guts? Art as protest is a bottom-up eruption that flows over everything, regardless of ideology or aesthetic predilection.

Today I read how Presidential Candidate Ben Carson is now ahead of Trump in the polls. What an amazing country we now live in. I don't understand it. Where did these people come from? How did they grow up in the same country that I did. What was done to them to cause them to flirt with fascism? It's still goofy but..well...

She is the Democratic money raising equivalent of George Bush, both. She is the past. She may be the ideological anti-Bush but she is structurally a peer.

The Rise of Shallow, Demonstrative Religion The Reagan Revolution was as much about the public dumbing down and aesthetic corruption of spirituality as it was about trickle down economics. Public pronouncements on the nature of God in the context of political campaign drivel is a crime against beauty. Watching Mike Huckabee talk about religion is like watching Jabba the Hutt explain the contents of the Louvre.

The Way of Trump: Building Walls Are national boundaries as absolutes healthy for us moving forward?

What if Serious Energy Was Expended on Being For Something? A Tragic thing happened and then a life affirming, wonderful thing is happening. Over Memorial Day weekend here in Texas a much needed, but not in the quantity and rapidity, rain event occurred. Creeks and rivers were very quickly inundated, many rose above all recorded flood stages and something we desperately needed, tragically, destroyed property and lives.

He has worked without rest at creating an oeuvre and persona built entirely on the ravaging and profaning of his occupation. He is, whether one considers him one or not, a journalist. He is the ultimate Anti-American.

Without Hard Work There Are No Kolaches This is a little story I wrote this morning after I posted a piece here yesterday. It got me thinking about someone I used to know. The response to the movie "American Sniper" has been strong and Chris Kyle, the sniper, has been personally savaged and disparaged. Did he deserve it. I don't know.

Thoughts on Reviews of "American Sniper" I haven't seen The movie "American Sniper." I've read many reviews and commentaries here and elsewhere. The overwhelming verdict from the left is that it is wrong. I viscerally believe this to be true. However, there is a flaw that seems to travel through most of the lefty writing on the movie. Or, maybe I should say: from my experience as a young man growing up a young man the reviews are flawed.

Charlie Hebdo: A Missed Bottom-Up, Kumbaya, Opportunity?

America: Je Suis Not Interested The USA didn't send a meaningful representative to the Charlie Hebdo march in France. I think this situation should have all Americans asking themselves -- what are we? The scale of this symbolic blunder is huge and we should be asking what the folks that run this place are truly made of? We can make big movies about snipers but we can't send a meaningful symbol to represent what we claim that sniper was killing for?

Israel: Servicing the Dysfunction The State of Israel is currently deep in the throes of "Servicing the Dysfunction". In its service to the tragic past of its people and "Never Again", Israel is a nation of mentally ill warriors. To willfully destroy the beautiful and cherished lives of innocent Palestinians as a panacea for your own tragic loss is, although common, crazy.

The Filth Eater I attempted to write play years ago entitled "The Filth Eater."

Building Cabinets This piece, ostensibly about carpentry, is really about climate change and global resource exploitation. Simple drawers made in the old way, wooden boxes sliding on wooden guides or simple planes of wood, ring out with a comfortable low clatter. They resonate and chime. Modern drawers guided and fixed by steel and nylon, whir and buzz. They sound like machine. ...They reek of technological masturbation.
