My short story Impulse is now up at the Dark Krypt. If you get a chance, check it out at- www.darkkrypt.com/darkkrypttaylesK.htm
My short story Top of the Morning to Ya should be up at The Writer's Nook and Reader's Corner shortly.
And The Bad Voice is still kicking. You can take a peek at the reviews and such at Amazon or Barnes and Noble (the cheaper of the two if you have a card). I'm still waiting on a couple book submissions (talk about frustrating, but I won't get started).
Beyond this, my non- fiction is really starting to make headway-
I've taken an assignment with ByLine Magazine (I'm interviewing a publisher, but more on that later).
My article at MMAFighting.com, Dream Match Up (where I take a Pride Fighter and put them up against a UFC fighter in a wish it were true match up) is amongst the site's most popular columns. In fact, recently I was asked to submit an article to MMAWeekly by their editor after he had come across the article. I have submitted the article and will let you know when it airs (P.S.- I write those articles under my non- fiction name- Robert).
As I've likely said before, the only non- New York teams I root for are in football. And lucky me-- the Steelers are one of them. This year we're the lucky recipients of Peyton Manning's annual post season flop. In fact, with the Patriots out, I'm currently having a little fun at some of my New England friends' expenses. BTW-- don't feel sorry for them. These same Patriots fans have been having a lot of fun at my expense over the past couple of years.
I watch a lot of football, and yes, I am clearly biased. With that being said, did anyone else feel like the referees in the Colts/ Steelers game were paid off? If it weren't for them, the Colts really wouldn't have even had a shot at the end of the game. The refs screwed up on at least three crucial calls-
1) The absolutely no question about it pass interference on the Colts in the first half would've, in the very least, led to a field goal attempt for the Steelers if it had been called correctly. Probably would've been 17- 0 or 21- 0 if they'd done their job.
2) The offsides that wasn't. Either throw the flag on the Steelers and send them back five yards or call it on the Colts. You can't say do over!
3) The most obvious of them all was the Troy Polamaulu interception. For crying out loud, if that's not an interception, what is? What I really can't believe is that they reviewed that play and still overturned it. Someone actually looked at that play from a bunch of different angles and still determined it wasn't an interception. In fact, after the game the NFL released a statement indicating that the refs blew the call. Really? No kidding?
- Along with this, I'd like to see that play where Peyton Manning got sacked near the end zone again. It sure was close to a safety.-
P.S.- when the Bus fumbled with a little over a minute to go, I started saying a lot of words very loudly that my children had never heard come out of my mouth. Then, when the Colts kicker missed the field goal, they saw the flip side of things (I began thanking God and everyone else I could think of). A few ice pops afterwards did the trick though (LOL, I'm kidding-- well, kind of).
Thanks again for listening. I appreciate it as always. Hope everyone had a great holiday season. Feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
