  1. I endured the Gerbil on helium and meth voice.
    Precall at 19min- through -1hr 45min, do the math: 1hr 26min.
    It only seemed like an eon.
    Bottom line: he appears stuck in 2004-2006 based on what he brought up.

    • He is. I suppose the good news is that he was so focused on authors that he forgot all about “piss bloggers.” What was odd to me is that I’d gotten to the point at which I was no longer used to hearing his gerbil-on-helium voice, so it took me a few minutes to get back into the swing of understanding his “fast accent,” as he calls it. I have no trouble understanding anyone from Chicagoland, but Nicky is … different.

      • I hope Deadman’s Tome reaches prospective writers. The more they are warned about editor, publisher, book designer Nickolaus Pacione, the better for them. The blog hosts are to be commended for letting him speak and reveal himself.

        I am a little disappointed he didn’t mention Porky Pig. (I will not endure over an hour of fast Italian to double check if I missed it.)

        • Unless I missed it, he didn’t mention how he hoped Poppy Z. Brite had died in Hurricane Katrina, either. I have one of Billy Martin’s hex jars on one of my fireplace mantles; every time I look at it, I think of how rusty those old nails in it are, and how well it is artistically presented.

          Whoops! I was wrong. He did mention Poppy. *groan* *sigh*

  2. The weirdest thing is that little giggle Nicky punctuates EVERY line with. You can’t make out what he’s honking half the time, but there’s always a Beavis and Butthead “huh huh” at the end of it. “Wakwakwakwakbriankeenewakwakwakcabbiehomicide, HEH!”

  3. I hope it reaches underage writers! He admitted he goes after them because they can’t legally sign contracts and does everything he can not to get their parents involved!

    • Off the top of my head, I can think of five underage kids he exploited for no pay, with no contract. There may be more. I hope you’re right that this turns out to be a warning to underage kids.

      How are you doing, Mel? I hope you have a fantastic Christmas, Solstice, or whatever. Hugs for you.

      • my health is good, but it’s harder and harder for me to get around. I use a walker because I’d been having some issues with falling due to being very unsteady on my feet at times, my xmas present to myself was one of those snazzy ones with 4 wheels, a seat, and a basket. no tennis balls for me anymore! LOL I’m also eating better thanks to a friend who takes me shopping. He looks at my list or goes through my fridge and says ‘now mel you don’t need that you’ve got XYZ you need to use up first!” LOL I use those fun electric scooters when shopping. Damn those those can be tricky. I still take out a display or two on occasion, and he’ll tell me ‘just drive on by you don’t need it!’ and 75% of the time I listen to him.

        My ancient 18 year old cat is still with me. She likes to scare the gals who come a couple times a week to help with cleaning and such by hiding in the bathtub or under the bed covers and leaping out at them the little brat.

        Christmas was quiet for me. I watched the Watership down Netflix series and It’s a wonderful life, and ate a few too many Christmas goodies.

        • My mom has one of those Rollators she uses in the house, but when she goes out, she’s got to use one of the walkers with “skis” on the back two legs. It’s so much more frustrating for her than it is for us that she can’t trot around like she used to be able to do.

          Do you need an ordinary walker with skis on the back legs? A Stander walker comes with them, can squeeze sideways to fit through narrow doors, if necessary, and fold up to fit into a closet, if you don’t want to stash it in a corner.

          • I have one of the standard ones that I use around the apartment building. =) I use the rollator one when out and about in case I need to sit down for a few minutes and there isn’t as chair or bench handy.

            Also wishing I lived closer to wal-mart to apply to be a greeter (I’m a glutton for punishment) but 30 miles is a bit far to drive for part time. I’d be spending my paycheck on gas! The place I WAS working at shut down because the guy in charge retired, and nobody wanted to take over. Also applied to work for the Census folks next year. I couldn’t do the door to door stuff, but they need office workers too!
