Publication, Agenting Update; Poignant Lyrics to Be Heeded

Following, some song lyrics from an album I re-discovered this past weekend. It’s from Mike Watt’s Ball-Hog or Tug Boat album, and is called “Against the 70’s”. The lyrics seemed very appropriate when compared to a post I left here a few weeks ago regarding trying to break in. Take a read if you haven’t already. The post was titled “Kicking and Screaming.” Talk soon. ~Frank

AGAINST THE 70’s

I asked him if he knew what time he had
He said he wasn’t sure, maybe a quarter past

The kids of today should defend themselves against the 70’s

I peered in his eyes as we stood in line just to have a look
But the pages I found looked like an unbound coloring book

The kids of today should defend themselves against the 70’s
The kids of today should defend themselves against the 70’s
It’s not reality, just someone else’s sentimentality…It won’t work for you…

Baby boomers selling you rumors of their history
Forcing youth away from the truth of what’s real today

The kids of today should defend themselves against the 70’s

Stadium minds with stadium lies gotta make you laugh
Garbage vendors against true defenders of the craft

The kids of today should defend themselves against the 70’s
The kids of today should defend themselves against the 70’s
It’s not reality, just someone else’s sentimentality…Look what it did to us…

(Speakin’ as a child of the 70’s) The kids against the 70’s…Kids against the 70’s…
The kids of today should defend themselves against the 70’s
The kids of today should defend themselves against the 70’s
The kids of today should defend themselves against the 70’s
The kids of today should defend themselves against the 70’s

    the best thing about this book (other than the book itself) is how many people are willing to do something to help. so many people spending so much precious time to work on something together. it makes me hopeful for the future – which is saying something – and it’s telling about the web “community.” it’s much more a REAL community than i used to think.

    First thanks for reading My War, our story won’t be thrown to the side by the press when this war ends. Also I am an aspiring writer hoping to get some bills paid with a deal. If I work at BK and get published that’s good too. Keep blogging!!!
