Mileygate: Media Propaganda Mayhem

These trying times are trying. The US government is shutdown. Fukushima is irradiating us across the planet. And a coveted few dance on.  Enter Miley Cyrus. And Gloria Steinem. Who responded to Mileygate. Yeah, thanks for that in depth analysis, Gloria.

Let me add, that back during Watergate, another distraction, it was a subterfuge for something else.  Just like Mileygate is now. Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Cointelpro (Counter Intelligence Program) problems: (Black Panther Party) Black Panthers, (American Indian Movement) AIM, no problem. Eradicate, ur, I mean irridiate them.

If there is nothing better to distract the planet from what is really going on: financial corruption, puppet governments etc. check it out. We have a Disneyfied force waiting to enter stage left.  It started with the MTV awards and leaked ever onward.  Because like Rahm Emmanuel, mayor of Chicago, says, why let a good crisis go to waste.

Indeed, Rahm. Let us not.  So starting with the strange hyper-sexual licking behavior of Miley ass slapping twerking nuttiness. Which many black pundits and scholars stated that the twerking dance move was complete appropriation. Completely. It’s been happening since Elvis.

Oh let us spin the blurred lines between Ms Cyrus and her Thicke partner. Pun very much intended.  Because he set the stage with his hyper-sexism – weird animal sexism with goats *R-rating* to bleed into the next stage of Miley Cyrus. It is always easy to take the comedic approach.  Let us laugh it off.  Just a little fun and games. Kind of like black face Al Jolson makeup. Or maybe Tonto. Who knows. People just don’t look into these things. Let us all be fools.

Because indeed, fools we are. Now Miley sings that the debt crisis is nothing more than a little Saturday Night Live silliness. A little tongue in cheekiness. Oh fughettaboutit. Who cares. As Nero did, let us fiddle while Rome burns.

Wilson’s Newest Publishing Venture: Fiction

Recently I decided to publish my fiction after reading this guy.  You may have heard of him.  I randomly came across him when I was researching ebook ideas.  Guess I’ve been totally out of the loop concerning indie publishing, because it wasn’t so long ago I was writing about this. I decided not to wait any longer, because the way publishing is heading I would either be 120 years old or dead by the time I got published.  I really didn’t want to wait for the latter.

 

In the Shadow of Shakespeare.  I wrote this book after I started investigating whether Christopher Marlowe was Shakespeare. Like many things in history that prove to be a fallacy, many people do not realize that the guy you think is Shakespeare is not really Shakespeare.  You know, the old bald guy that people in Stratford-upon-Avon insist on sexying up in all these supposed portraits that are found in various places?

I mixed a lot of things in this novel I find interesting.  The holographic universe and the illusion of time and space provided the background for the time travel sequence.  This novel was recently (July/2013)  professionally edited.

 

The Nature of Things. This novel came about from my experiences as a natural resource professional.  I say professional because it sounds better than worker. In Michigan there is no combined job title of wildlife biologist/ conservation officer but there is in other states.  There are many contentious issues within the field of natural resources and in this novel I touch on Native American treaty rights, environmental toxins, and the dirty dealers who deal in environmental degradation.

 

 

Birds of a Feather. Crows are the basis of this story.  I was thinking of a huge murder of crows I saw once in a tree that all flew up then circled round and round the tree.  I have never seen anything like it.  I was also thinking of an old crow friend in the zoo who used to put his head down for me to scratch.  One day I went back to his cage and he was gone.

 

 

 

Only One Guy. While I was researching what happened to Anna Mae Aquash, an American Indian Movement (AIM) activist, I came across the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), Counter Intelligence Program (COINTELPRO). This story came out of that research.  I was going to dedicate this story to Ms Aquash, but I didn’t want to offend anyone so I didn’t.

 

 

The Twelfth House.  A psychic who uses astrology as a tool to trap a psychopath who kills women.   Do these psychic atrologers really exist?  Who knows.  A good idea for a story though.

Ideas for Writing an Ebook

Surprisingly I’m not selling you an ebook on ideas for writing an ebook.   I have yet to write an ebook.  I’ve written two novels, numerous short stories, countless articles and other assorted content but no ebook.  But I have some ideas for you.

The standard advice for writers is write what you know.  If you have online content and have been watching your statistics through Google Analytics or another statistical program you have some article numbers.  Clearly some of your articles have risen to the top while many have fallen.  I bet these are your evergreen articles, or articles that stay pertinent throughout time.  I bet you are proud of these articles and happy that they are still popular.  Congratulations.  There is interest in your topic.

Why not capitalize on this?  Expand your popular article or articles into an ebook.  This post is not on how to write your ebook or on how to market it, it is simply a few ideas on getting you started on making more money for your creative efforts.  Most ebooks are from thirty to one hundred pages and range in price from ten to 40 dollars.  It amazes me that ebooks rival in price to traditional books, in many cases they cost more, but this doesn’t seem to deter people.   I think it has to do with ease of access to the information.  While you have to wait at Amazon.com to get your books through the mail you an speedily download content on your mobile device.   There is also content out there that you cannot easily access in a tradtional print format.  Check out what editor Jane Friedman says about ebook statistics.

But what if there is something you are passionate about but you don’t know much about?  Then this is another approach.   If you are just starting out as a writer or have been heavily into research about a topic you just can’t get enough of but your friends think you should put a cork in it…there you go.  Put a cork in it for them but uncork it for your eager readers.  How do you know if it will sell?  Do a little research via Analytics and other resources.  Are there magazines devoted to the topic?  I know of one writer who writes about planes.  This writer is a specialist; she used to be a pilot and also sells articles to magazines about flying and planes.  She also sells ebooks regarding these topics.  So whether your a chess fanatic or a Barbie collector, there are people who want to know what you know.
