All Apologies

I just wanted to take a minute to throw out a worthless excuse or two as to why we've been so short on substantial new material around here lately. Unfortunately, I'm still trying to work out a daily rhythm with the baby and find time to write for this site and HuffPost. I'm slowly getting into a groove and hopefully that means more extensive pieces to come in the near future.

In the meantime, I wanted to once again thank everyone who's been kind enough to buy copies of my book, Dead Star Twilight, and particularly those select few who've made surprisingly generous donations to this site via the PayPal link within the past couple of weeks. That sort of kindness, especially given the economy, is incredibly humbling -- but not as humbling as what it says about how much you appreciate the effort that goes into putting Deus Ex Malcontent together and the content itself.

It really keeps me going and I can't express my gratitude enough for that.

Chez, without DXM, I'd probably be stuck obsessing with finding work to do at work, instead of what to write for the day's leavings. Thank you for the readings, the inspirations, and keep up the good work at your own pace. Don't pull a Copolla on us and start cranking out Godfather III's.

At the risk of sounding like a sycophant, let me say two things: You're inspiring me to be a better writer, particularly in the use of creative invective. And you're showing me that my slow decent into madness isn't that bad after all.

This isn't the best blog on the interwebs, but it's one of the best written and damn if that isn't worth being proud, if not humble. So keep it up.

Priorities. What a concept!

I sense the gravitas of fatherhood creeping into your life.

75% of your life is spent as selfish being; only hoping that somehow marriage will cure that, but it doesn't.

It is a good thing.

Being a parent has kept me out of jail on at least three separate occasions.

This was one of the first blogs I started reading way back in '06, and it makes me proud to say that I've been an avid and loyal reader since day one.

Keep on doin' what you do, man - you may be a misanthropic pain in the ass, but here you have a fan (and a friend) for life.

here's a couple of kudos, to remember the myspace days... :)
