Spiderman: The Scriptment

In the early nineties, the Spiderman movie was stuck in development hell as my comic loving friends may remember. Here's a scriptment of James Cameron's take on the Spiderman franchise.

It's the original Spiderman movie that was never made, complete with Mary Jane and Peter making love on a web.

Calliope Nerve XI: Adequate Brood

"All we have, all we are, are cliches." --Peter Milligan

Calliope Nerve Part XI: Adequate Brood is available now and free of charge featuring the work of Michigan's own Shawn Misener.

the arrogant and uncomfortable truth of things

I’m putting up the poems for good this time.

I’m hanging them outside
on that rusty fence made of wire
hoping the poems with suffer tetanus and die.

I’m wadding them up
lighting them on fire
or just plain deleting them to oblivion.

I’m serious.
I can’t get anything done
with these fucking poems hanging around.

It seems the more I hide them away
the more I see your poems.

Those poor little poems
packaged so pretty
with nothing inside except dust and spit.

I just shake my head
pull the old bastards out
and tinker some more.

Somebody has to do it
if only for the love of all poetry.

Somebody has to balance out the shit.

--Shawn Misener

Dream Sequence

I'm in a class room full of people I know or have known over the years. One person I remember being there was a guy name Andy McVan who was in several of my classes all the way from kindergarten through twelfth grade. The teacher looked like (but was not) my son Jake and daughter Lacey's kindergarten teacher Mrs. Cerne. We are sharing our life stories with the class (mostly professional talk--jobs/schooling, etc) as each one of us stood up and headed to the front of the class to speak (like show and tell).

The thing that makes this dream noteworthy is that though everyone else was dressed in regular clothes, I was only wearing "tidy whitey" underwear and a white blanket covering me. When I stood up to address the class I began with, "You might think I'm embarrassed about only being dressed in my underwear and a blanket. But I'm not. I am however a bit embarrassed about this pot belly I have." The class erupted into laughter. End dream.

Secret Decoder Ring

"Join the crash." --Metallica

"We're on my hands and knees in times of winding
We night it's only when we civilize that worm
For vagrant time we need it
What secret of your knowing is there beginning?" --The Melvins

Gabcast! White Rabbit - *BLACK HOLE* #6

Secret Decoder Ring

In Chap
on Canvass
I gave words Sweet

Drank tea
With his Kennedy
(Never knowing Gun)
Pyramid of mind's

Smoked Opium
With the
Caliph of Tides.
Salt verse
Left in sand.

Lived longer
Than any real poet
has Right too.

Wore the Secret
Decoder Ring...
It all came
Mushrooms &

Losing days
That Civilized worm
(My problem of Alice)
Let me wrap my lips
'round till
Calliope sings.
This is the -day-
No PIG dies
Another chance to feel--


Every time He reads
My work
God weeps.

And overnight I sold my first book on Amazon! I figured this one would go quick because the author Sylvia Browne is so popular. Now, to figure out how to get more books like that for resale!

Book Store

I've just begun this but I did finally get in gear to sell my own inventory through Amazon. Here is a current list. BTW, The Narnia Books are in nice shape.

The last time I asked this no one responded. Is anyone out there selling books, CD's, comics, collectibles, etc whether it be online, at the flea market, do you own a store? I'd like to get some ideas from you especially if you are successful.

Also, if you can refer me to any resources about selling these types of things please do.

One book I may get is this because I like the author but right now I'm really only looking at online and mail order type sales. Of course, if I owned the next Snowball, Toys Time Forgot, or Buckeye Bookshop I might change my mind. :)

The Clockwork Tiger

"I give you concrete shoes." --Megadeth

"I thought I could write about the horrors of the city but the horror is too big and it goes on forever." --Grant Morrison

Gabcast! White Rabbit - *BLACK HOLE* #5

The Clockwork Tiger

my clockwork
growls angry
beats sensitive


pounce dust
kicks up frenzy


-Surreal Me--
Words with skin.
paper truths

swallowing Earth
anxiety hope
(little drops)
Raise umbrella
for Tuesday's
& Angels

broken skies.
It's a yellow brick
We follow home.
Me, my ghosts,
the clock on the wall.
As if I'd forget...
