Chain Your Muse

I heard this gem last week, sound advice to anyone who bleeds ink: I keep my muse on a chain. And when I get 20 minutes I yank on the chain and say, 'C'mon, muse.'

Crook v Crook v Crooked Cop

The promise includes a vicious series of showdowns, a coterie of sadists and pervs, and a few well-intentioned rubes caught up in a game bigger than the pile they’re after. The cast of criminals and dirty … Continue reading Crook v Crook v Crooked Cop
