When G Arthur Brown (author of KITTEN), announced he was handing out story titles to interested authors for publication at his blog, “The Strange Edge,” I took up the challenge. Brown sent me two words: Guest Mozart. I wrote the story within one hour of receiving the title, because I already had a character, immediately grasped and molded an imaginary frame. It’s a short, funny, and gory story. It’s also about a father’s love for his daughter. Click the picture and enjoy.
UPDATE: Jamie Grefe’s Shredded Maps: The Podcast is now using Tumblr, too.
I am happy to announce my new endeavor, a comedic podcast. Back in 2008 I ran a noise music podcast and believed in the medium from the get-go, but now in 2012, I feel how lucky we are to have so many engaging and interesting podcasts available, especially in the world of comedy—Never Not Funny, New Year’s Eve with Neil Hamburger, WTF w/Marc Maron, The Dana Gould Hour and so on. I would like to see more writers get on-board with this potent form, but I think that time will come. In the meantime, and since I’ve been focusing specifically on humorous writing these days and stand-up comedy, I would like to share with you my new podcast, “Jamie Grefe’s Shredded Maps.” This podcast will showcase my brand of humor in bite-sized chunks. However, once I am back in the US, I am planning on expanding the podcast to feature guests (writers, artists, thinkers, comics, etc.) and, at that time, expand the length of the broadcast. Thank you for tuning in and let the adventure continue.
