Sincerely contrived teen drama finds Vanessa Hudgens in a family way
By Devin D. O’Leary

Rowdy’s Dream Blog #329: Canyon of the Rag Man
By Brutus De Cervantes [ Wed Jan 8 2014 2:06 PM ]
I climb through narrow sandstone notch canyons and out into a steeply sloping, red-dirt valley that was formed by a peasant revolt ages ago. I help a crazy rag-man to find the terminus for a bundle of blue, cat-5 cables. It turns out to be a cash register operated by John Travolta, who is dressed in wizard garb.

Rowdy’s Dream Blog #321: Waiting for a Train
By Brutus De Cervantes [ Thu Nov 14 2013 11:54 AM ]
I attend a remedial jobs class that is full of rowdy homeless people. We sit at school desks. The bell rings and a short man with a crew cut gets up and faces the class—he is the professor. He invites us all to come up and get some flyers. I collect one of each, including instructions on how to become a porn star. I return to my seat. A girl dressed in white asks me about my recording contract. I correct her, saying that I did make a record, but did not have a record deal. A guy I know is outside in the snow with his legs across the train tracks, waiting for a train to come. There is already blood in the snow.
