Lunch tonight was: Carnitas, carnne asada and pollo tacos from the place by the Harley Davidson store. Washed down with a half litre Mexican coke!

My name is...My Name Is...

Nothing is more satisfying to a writer than seeing their own name in print, especially if someone else printed it, except that the thing onto which you name is printed comes up when you type your own name in Amazon.

So, behold! I feast on this divine pleasure. carefully type in on any internet browser or just type my name in amazon and you will find my first published contributions.

From the description: The First Annual Outsideleft Hardy Annual is a handy compendium of articles from the popular website Offering esoteric pop-inspired opinion and (some might say), wit, here is a love letter to less-revered celebrities, with healthy helpings of mostly forgotten culture. The Outsideleft Hardy Annual scabrously dissects whatever the hell the likes of Jenny Holzer, Morrissey, Jonathan Ames, Daniel Johnston, Babyshambles, Wallace Berman and many more! might have been up to when our paths crossed. Music, movies, vanity and verbal violence... Featuring contributions from Joe Ambrose, Kirk Lake, Alex V. Cook and others. The First Annual Outsideleft Hardy Annual is a small book of big, fast, unruly and loose opinions. Oh and did I say, "entertaining." Entertaining yes, but not suitable for all readers. No.
