The Daily Mess The Daily Steps

Writing is a documentation of movement. Mental growth as a creative can't be a pool of water without an outlet. Placing limitations on the distribution of process has every reason to stunt the personal growth of a creative spirit. Steps. Baby steps then an out of control leap. A learning tool. The "How To" book of accepting one's art. Only to openly admit that it's been more of a Dodge Ball game then a race to reach a purpose. In all ways the creative wanderer must find a place to pour his...


Ryan Jay Reviews Mr. Malcom's List And The Princess On Hulu

Two movies make their way onto Ryan Jay In theaters this weekend is Mr. Malcom's List. It first started out as a book that evolved into a fan favorite short. Now it's a full movie feature.

Holding Onto Summer Memories

July 1, 2022 A summer day. A summer way. Without these books of spilled ink, I honestly would have no memory of summers passed. Only one consistently jumps into play on any lazy day. The summer of 78. The wild teenagers from the south side of Billings, Montana near Optimist Park. Rob, Neal, Ronae, Kelly, Susan and Bart. These were the inspiration and influence to my published book Halloween 78. The events of the summer were every bit a young adult adventure and nightmare. We ran all over...

The Daily Mess Locate Your Nothing

June 29, 2022 In prayer this morning I admitted to pouring too much into a future that cannot be predicted and or caught up with. Spending too much time with a mirage on a summer highway. By the time you arrive al that you thought you saw has mysteriously disappeared. The past is no different. So many stories and experiences are given permission to change. Not because we want to hide our truths but over time we base things on how it might have gone. This is why I write! Transparency is my...

Stream Thinking Breaking Down Why

The stream thinking journal. Is it my latest bitch or complaint? I can't help but wonder if this is where the old man curmudgeon's planting his imagination. To set free all things inside. If there's one thing I've learned from the Johnny Depp trial, what you write can be used as evidence and the interpretation of what's been written can easily be redesigned to make their case look stronger and more believable. Insert a giant creative gulp!

I can't imagine how it's going to affect me when the other side of life tells its story. So I De Frag the question: Name ten artists you don't want to see die during your living years. The goal isn't to create a Debbie Downer moment. It's to celebrate the beauty of the art of music by giving your inner core a deeper purpose as to why you still hold onto their sights...
