What we’ve been up to since the crash
Since Books & Shovels’s temporary derailment in Lawrence, K.S., Captain, Sam, and I have been wage slaving in order to be able to afford a new vehicle. We’re on our way to being able to relaunch by early 2015 at the latest.
Learning from our past mistakes, we’re preparing ways to handle the books we’ll be bringing with us. One of the main issues that arouse regarding…

Writing on the Road

10 things to live up to as a poet (a Dreamer’s manifesto)
A Dreamer’s Manifesto
1. Carry around something to record ideas with at all times, because a Muse may be sporadic and volatile with her timing.
2. Vomit. Drafts take away from the creative process.
3. Street corners are a venue of performance that you must live up to,
4. Only charge for print publications.
5. After a performance, if someone desires your book and can’t afford it, toss them…
I’m cutting myself open and deep at the moment. Thanks for watching over the bleeding out process! Cheers!
Last year, after graduating high school, I hit the road hitchhiking with a frame pack full of poetry. That was the original Books & Shovels.

Honestly I can say that Jeremiah Walton puts his money where his mouth is having excellent follow-through with everything he has set out to accomplish.

Why bother doing this? Is Jeremiah Walton insane? Is his merry band of individuals equally insane? It is hard to say.

America is an angry toddler. Go rot in a tomb you backward bastard.

We are aiming at all throats of America.
