Shirking my blog-sponsibility?

I was perusing some earlier blog posts, seeing what kind of BS I'm forcing through my keyboard, looking at how many "writing" tags I have as opposed to "video games", when something occurred to me. I'm writing a whole lot of stupid, unnecessary crap on this blog. Should I use this space to come up with something like...I don't know....a new invention of some kind or some sort of concrete evidence that proves the coexistence of alternate realities?

After I took a few minutes to think about what other, more important, stuff could be written here I realized THAT would be the bullshit. The truth of the matter is that nobody's thought process is bullshit-free. Maybe some of the more brilliant people have bullshit-lite brains and ALL of us have a few granules of enlightenment floating around in there, but it's mostly bullshit.

Then there's the possibility that I'm just the dummy who doesn't realize his brain isn't up to speed. Maybe I'm imbalanced in just the right way so my little section of the universe feels steady while everything else wobbles around me. That could very well be the case. If that's true, it doesn't even matter because I'd still rather just sit here coloring on my walls and singing to myself like the guy in the institution who is cracked, but doesn't bother anyone.

Eh, too much thinking. How about that Hell's Kitchen?

This is what happens without editors

I'm Marcus Pelegrimas, author of the SKINNERS series. Here you'll find various ramblings about movies, video games, TV, and...oh yeah...those books I write. If there's anything you'd like to discuss, just let me know. I try to update whenever the mood strikes me, so feel free to leave comments. There may be some occasional foul language, but anyone who's too easily offended probably doesn't read my stuff anyway.

Free Stuff

Here's how it goes. As usual, I've got my truckload of promo covers from EOS Books. I'll be going to some conventions, so I hope to see you there and I'll gladly sign your books. If you can't make it to a con, just email me your name, address and any inscription so I can send you a signed cover.

BONUS ---> If you would be so kind as to write up a review for any or all Skinners books and publish it on a site like, Barnes & Noble, Borders, or any other major review site, I can send you something extra. I made up some bookmarks (which I'll sign) and I've even put together some Shimmy's VIP passes (which I'll also sign). Can't guarantee the passes will get you into a real strip club, but I think they look pretty cool. Send me a link to your review along with your name, address and inscription, and I'll get these out to you as well.
