We discuss if a non-profitable artist is as fake as tofurkey. Daniel discusses math as art. Thomm likes deadlines and evades them by doing three months of work in a weekend. Amber has emotions because she ran over a Neonazi squirrel. Lawn chairs are worth $10,000 in the context of the moment. Are artists gifted by god or merely a cog in a better machine? It doesn't matter because no one reads credits. Tom Clancy is more profitable as a brand than as an author. Actors are tools, take that how you wish. John Green doesn't mess with any New Coke. Engineering students, Daniel doesn't want your boxes.
Thomm Quackenbush is an author and teacher in the Hudson Valley. Double Dragon publishes four novels in his Night's Dream series (We Shadows, Danse Macabre, and Artificial Gods, and Flies to Wanton Boys). He has sold jewelry in Victorian England, confused children as a mad scientist, filed away more books than anyone has ever read, and tried to inspire the learning disabled and gifted. He is capable of crossing one eye, raising one eyebrow, and once accidentally groped a ghost. When not writing, he can be found biking, hiking the Adirondacks, grazing on snacks at art openings, and keeping a straight face when listening to people tell him they are in touch with 164 species of interstellar beings.
