Th...

A Bad-Ass Review Of How Bad Dave Barry's 'Book of Bad Songs' Is.

Funny story: A Bad-Ass Review Of How Bad Dave Barry's 'Book of Bad Songs' Is.

Dave Barry wrote a book about bad songs. Fully 2/3rds of the songs he writes about are songs that I love. Dave Barry is now on my excrement list. First off, let me explain who Dave Barry is. Dave Barry is a comic god. Not a comic genius. Not a comic professional. Not a comic expert. A comic god. Let's get that straight right from the beginning. I know he looks pretty geeky for someone...

Miserable (Not to be confused with Stephen King's 'Misery')

Funny story: Miserable (Not to be confused with Stephen King's 'Misery')

Contrary to popular belief, most writers would prefer to sit facing a blank wall, rather than overlook a paradise beach in the Caribbean. There are no distractions when you sit facing a blank wall, so in theory, the writing comes easier. I didn't introduce myself, did I? My name is Mike Shuttlecock, and I'm a novelist.
