Friday Fun Trifecta #8

If you remember a while back, we did a segment here on SDMcKinley.com called Friday Fun Links. Fun links have evolved into Friday Fun Trifecta, where I will feature one thing of each – music, book and visual arts. Welcome to Friday Fun Trifecta #8, in appreciation for artwork. I’m a bit late on this post – and, as someone once told me, “If you can’t get here on time, just get here when you can.”

Book:

No more Mr. Nice Guy by Dr. Robert Glover

“1If it frightens you, do it.   2Don’t settle. Every time you settle, you get exactly what you settled for.   3Put yourself first.   4No matter what happens, you will handle it.   5Whatever you do, do it 100%.   6If you do what you have always done, you will get what you have always got.   7You are the only person on this planet responsible for your needs, wants, and happiness.   8Ask for what you want.   9If what you are doing isn’t working, try something different. 10Be clear and direct. 11Learn to say “no.” 12Don’t make excuses. 13If you are an adult, you are old enough to make your own rules. 14Let people help you. 15Be honest with yourself. 16Do not let anyone treat you badly. No one. Ever. 17Remove yourself from a bad situation instead of waiting for the situation to change. 18Don’t tolerate the intolerable — ever. 19Stop blaming. Victims never succeed. 20Live with integrity. Decide what feels right to you, then do it. 21Accept the consequences of your actions. 22Be good to yourself. 23Think “abundance.” 24Face difficult situations and conflict head on. 25Don’t do anything in secret. 26Do it now. 27Be willing to let go of what you have so you can get what you want. 28Have fun. If you are not having fun, something is wrong. 29Give yourself room to fail. There are no mistakes, only learning experiences. 30Control is an illusion. Let go; let life happen. It”

― Robert A. Glover, No More Mr. Nice Guy

This BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge really is one of the best things, ever. Artists covering artists, supporting each others work. Spiraling each other until greatness. It’s the best when the covers come out arguably better than the originals. Hey. You win some and lose some, right?

Book:

The Kill Riff by David J. Schow
Quote from Amazon preview of The Kill Riff by David J. Schow

I picked this book, sort of randomly, ( with the exception of the heaviness of metal, since we are being so metal today, to theme this post ) from a nicely put together book about book about books titled Paperbacks from Hell: The Twisted History of ’70s and ’80s Horror Fiction by Grady Hendrix. I discovered this through a local book store and instead of being an arse and looking up the price on Amazon, in turn ordering it from there: I, instead paid tribute to the store and purchased it from them for helping me discover it. PSA: Don’t be one of those arses:

Spawn, Todd McFarlane and I go way back, all the way to the release of Spawn #1. McFarlane really has done some great things for the comic and toy industry; what he did was groundbreaking, in turn breaking the mold of what these mediums can and should do. He was often rejected because of his ideas, but he held strong to them and I love that. Hold strong to your beliefs, guys and gals:

I haven’t quite got the chance to dive into this series, yet. Hopefully, St. Nick can bring a copy in through the chimney. I’m even more interested after reading some of the other, zany quotes. Have you read any of this series?

“I liked the imaginary people on the entertainment feed way more than I liked real ones, but you can’t have one without the other.” ― Martha Wells, All Systems Red

If you want to see me drive crazy through the woods like a drunk sailor on a unicorn trike start at the beginning. People battle starts at like 5:20, almost three minute bear battle after shooting the bell twice at 9:20 with . . .
