Every writer has a thing, ritual, or routine to get in the creative flow. Mine is to DJ. Yes, I used to dig through crates and rawk house parties for fun back in the 90s. My Favorites playlist is massive, and while not an exclusive promotion, I do rely heavily on Slacker.com to help keep the flow going. My musical tastes are eclectic and compliment my storytelling style.
Von Simeon is my nom de plume or nom de guerre, depending on the situation. It’s got a hefty origination, very fitting for my dark writing style.
When I need to join forces with the Universe, indulge in ancient astronaut theory, or reflect on poetic passages, I go to my digital copy of the Bhagavad-Gita. You don’t have to be religious to appreciate the work, and you’ll be astounded to discover how applicable it can be to your daily living.
I lived in and around Austin, Texas for almost ten years. Doesn’t matter where I am in the world, Sunday mornings are Chillville mornings with Ray and Monty! Not an exclusive promotion, but krox.com is one of the lasting bastions in true independent, alternative music radio, and they represent the Live Music Capital of the World with verve.
