Gosh, not one review in 2011 either.
 
Posted to Ukedude's profile August 18, 2010
Gee whiz, not one review for 2010.
 
Posted to Ukedude's profile April 11, 2010
Still no activity, pal. What's up?
 
Posted to Ukedude's profile February 22, 2010
No reviews in some time. when are you coming back on the air?
 
Posted to Ukedude's profile January 31, 2010
So where have you been lately?
 
Posted to Ukedude's profile October 23, 2009
If you're at all interested in vampires or myths, you might want to check out my latest review.

I just learned today that John King died of a heart attack at the age of 65 in April 2009. I wrote a review of King's CD playing Bach on unaccompanied ukulele. John King was a master musician who simply chose the lowly ukulele as his main instrument. When a master musician plays, it doesn't matter what instrument it is, the music will be wonderful. Most of you have probably never heard of him, but I know that I will miss him terribly. A great and wonderful talent. Both of his CDs are available on cdbaby.com for $15 each. Believe me, that is cheap for the wonderful music you get.

Christmas came yesterday, as did your book! Its such a cute little thing! I read it all yesterday in two sittings. (I had to give me eyes a rest.) Liked it a lot.
June 29, 2009
I'm glad it got there. I am very happy to hear that you liked it. Not everyone has. Merry Christmas
June 29, 2009
What problems did others have with it?
June 29, 2009
Not enough action. Not enough monsters. Nothing like today's horror.
June 29, 2009
I can see that I suppose. The only thing I might have wanted to do was punch it up a bit here and there but once an editor, always an editor. I missed the ol' Lovecraftian sense of foreboding that a sentence here and there could have helped.
June 29, 2009
I have found that people either liked it or hated it. Once it was published, even with the horrible editing, I did find all kinds of things that I would have changed. Most young people think my stuff is too slow. They want sex, death and mayhem in the first two pages, and forget all about background.
June 29, 2009
That's why we get all the crappy movies we get too. Everything is geared towards that age group with their looow attention span!
June 29, 2009
I'm working on the sequel, and I'm hoping to correct some of what was wrong with the first one. It will be similar in style, though.
June 29, 2009
Cool! I've always wanted to co-write something but we never got beyond plotting. It was always fun though. We'd come up with these ridiculous plotlines and laugh ourselves silly.
June 29, 2009
Now I know you should read Christopher Moore. He comes up with ridiculous plotlines and makes them work
June 29, 2009
I love 'em. Still have to get that library card from my daughter. Now that I started reading a little bit my eyes think they can handle a little more.
June 29, 2009
I am glad you liked my writing, though. Gives me a little more confidence for the sequel.
June 29, 2009
The basic story premise was very solid. The sequel should be better because of what you learned from the first book. We all learn from doing after all.
June 29, 2009
I do sincerely hope so. You would be amazed to find out how long it took me to finally finish and submit that little book.
June 29, 2009
It wouldn't surprise me at all. I think I've finished 2 short stories in my life. One of them was only 1 page long and that took me a week.
June 29, 2009
My son in law finally just took the book and submitted it. I started it in 1965 and then kept "improving" it instead of finishing it. That's why Jim's name is on it. He was the one who finally pushed for publication. I did learn one thing. When it's finished, it's finished. No matter how many "improvements" you think you should make
June 29, 2009
I guess you do have to know when you've reached the end.
June 29, 2009
I "improved" that little book at least 50 times. I wasn't "satisfied" with it when Jim took it. Eventually, you do have to just let it go. It's actually not a horrible read. I can see where I still would have improved it, but if I had, then it NEVER would be published.

great new pic! and just noticed you're from springfield - what a trip, I grew up outside of cleveland, and went to kent state. small world : )
June 26, 2009
Thanks. I appreciate your writing.
June 28, 2009
I like that photo too, John in action...
June 28, 2009
Thanks, Emama. You always make me smile. Does your husband know how great you are?
 
Posted to Ukedude's profile June 24, 2009
Ahhh...scary, scary picture! I don't agree...I think you look MUCH better than the creepy host of Tales From the Crypt that STILL gives me nightmares LOL. I like your humorous outlook on aging but, I'd much rather see your friendly face than something that scares me from the page!
June 24, 2009
For you, and for EcoMama, I will go back to my own horrible face. But only for you two. OK?
June 24, 2009
OK! YAY!!!!! See, this is MUCH better...Thank you, oh kind one!
June 24, 2009
And @EcoMama is right...your face speaks of wisdom and definitely nothing like Tales from the Crypt!
June 24, 2009
For you, and for Emama, I would do anything.
June 24, 2009
Wait. Wisdom? I can't even balance my check book consistently. Wisdom?
June 25, 2009
By the way, being wise and smart are two different things.
June 25, 2009
So being wise means being old? I am that.
 
Posted to Ukedude's profile June 24, 2009
Haha, John, I agree with James. I like the real you better :) I guess we will all look somewhat like that someday!
June 24, 2009
Thanks, Lovely Lady. I appreciate that.
June 24, 2009
I still got dibs on Dorian Gray's closet! Where's that's picture? You might just switch back and forth between the two. I need to upload a few more myself.
June 24, 2009
Do you mean the picture from LEAGUE OF EXTRAORDINARY GENTLEMEN? I would rather be the Cryptkeeper than have my picture do that to me.
June 24, 2009
Do you have any photos of yourself when you were younger and in the military? You could scan that in :)
June 24, 2009
No not really. We had a fire some years ago and I lost all of the old pictures. Sorry.
June 24, 2009
In fact, I don't think I have any pictures at all of when I had hair.
June 24, 2009
Oh, I'm sorry, that's too bad.
June 24, 2009
That's okay, though. I know what I looked like. I did add a pic of John Lippolis and me playing for one of the coffee houses. Let me know what you think.
June 24, 2009
I'm assuming you are the one with the guitar? I still like the picture of just you better, this one is interesting though.
June 24, 2009
Nope, I'm the one with the melodica.  That's John Lippolis on guitar. I also play unitar and bass, but for this gig, I was on melodica.
June 24, 2009
Okay. I'm back.
June 24, 2009
Looks good! You are writing so many reviews I can't keep up. Pretty soon you'll be #1 weekly contributor!

When you are in the military, particularly in a potential combat zone, you are either scared and busy, or you are bored. I always took a book so I have read quite a bit. Since I've retired, I've read more. James and Karen both remind me of books I've read, or movies I've seen, so I review them.
 
Posted to Ukedude's profile June 24, 2009
John is back, yeay! Horrible? Your face speaks nothing but wisdom, you should be proud of it!
June 24, 2009
I did it just for you.
June 24, 2009
For me and djevoke.
June 24, 2009
Well, yeah, but mostly for you since you have helped me with the wiki. You know, if I were 40 years younger.......................... I'm sure you've heard that one before, too.
June 24, 2009
:) I'm married, but that makes me smile!
June 24, 2009
I'm glad. I do like to make beautiful young women smile.
 
Posted to Ukedude's profile June 24, 2009
It's the Tales from the Crypt guy. I liked the real you better, but this is fun as well. Write more scary reviews.
June 24, 2009
I absolutely love this character. In fact, in a few years, I will BE this character. I will look exactly like him!!!!! I'm trying to decide what to write about next. Another horror novel?
June 24, 2009
Yes, it would fit your new portrait! I prefer the Dorian Gray look myself. You should see my closet. :)
June 24, 2009
Early 20th century Lovecraft, King and even Hubbard's "Fear" (1941 I believe). Lots of material in the horror genre. I prefer the film versions. Currently looking at science fiction stuff as well as the latest Hollywood barn burners (uh, block busters).
