When butterflies deliver your mail

When butterflies deliver your mail

Marty’s photo of the day #2871: I dedicate today’s photo to Wanda LaCroix. She lives in Grecia, Costa Rica, and on February 1st I mailed her a copy of my new novel, “Time Is Irreverent 2: Jesus Christ, Not Again!” According to USPS tracking, the book traveled from Victor, Montana to Missoula to San Francisco […]

Earth Day photo for Republicans

Earth Day photo for Republicans

Marty’s photo of the day #2870: Today is Earth Day, and if you’re a Republican, I know this is a miserable day for you. Why would anyone want to talk about saving the planet for future generations, when nothing is more important than the money you are making right now? Fuck your children and grandchildren, […]

Halestorm rocks!

Halestorm rocks!

Marty’s photo of the day #2869: Sometimes you just need to forget about politics and work and have some fun. Deb and I drove most of the day yesterday to get to Billings for the Halestorm concert. We had a wonderful dinner in a nice restaurant and then enjoyed an incredible concert from Halestorm. The […]

Lucy under the . . .

Lucy under the  . . .

Marty’s photo of the day #2867: Okay, everyone sing, “Lucy under the sky with flowers!” Okay, perhaps I need to work on my lyrics a bit. But I know there’s a hit there somewhere.

Kingston Ferry

Marty’s photo of the day #2866: Greetings from Lynnwood, WA (just north of Seattle). Today I perform a 12:30 p.m. show at Edmonds Community College. Yesterday, I was on the opposite side of the Puget Sound for a show at Olympic College. To get where I am now, I had a choice of driving south […]

Leopard Seal

Leopard Seal

Marty’s photo of the day #2865: Greetings from Bremerton, WA (near Seattle). I have 3:00 pm show today at Olympic College. If you are nearby, come see the show! One of the animals I talk about in “Around the World in 50 Minutes” is a leopard seal. Here’s one that I photographed off the coast […]

Trump entices fans to kill for him

Trump entices fans to kill for him

Donald Trump will forever be the worst president in the United States, because he is the only president who openly tries to entice his fans to kill for him. In my opinion, he already succeeded once, by giving the man who would become the Capital Gazette shooter that extra push, that extra permission, to kill […]

One badass frog

One badass frog

Marty’s photo of the day #2862: Monkey frogs are my favorite species of frog. They are pretty fearless, they don’t feel like frogs (they feel waxy), and they aren’t really even shaped like frogs. I photographed this beauty in the Amazon Rainforest of Peru.

Waiting for mom

Waiting for mom

Marty’s photo of the day #2861: A gentoo penguin chick watches the ocean, waiting for mom or dad to come home. (Photographed on an island off the coast of Antarctica)

People who actually read the book, love it!

People who actually read the book, love it!

Yesterday I posted a couple 1-star reviews to demonstrate the difficulties of writing liberal books when conservatives, who haven’t even read the story, try to bring them down—as if they were doing a favor for Trump. Today, I’d like to post some of the shorter 5-star reviews for my latest novel Time Is Irreverent 2: […]

White Peacock Butterfly

White Peacock Butterfly

Marty’s photo of the day #2860: We travel to the Everglades for this photo I took of a white peacock butterfly.

Bearing false witness

Bearing false witness

Since I have placed multiple liberal-political-content warnings on the Amazon pages for Time Is Irreverent and Time Is Irreverent 2: Jesus Christ, Not Again! I have slowed down the negative reviews from right-wingers. Still some, who have obviously not read the novels, trash them anyway: This one was posted today for Time Is Irreverent: “Seriously. […]

Great horned owl

Great horned owl

Marty’s photo of the day #2859: I took this photo last year and didn’t have to go far to shoot it. This great horned owl landed in a tree right outside the picture window of my second-story writing room. Needless to say, writing slowed down dramatically in my room for the hour or so she […]

Snowy Sedona

Snowy Sedona

Marty’s photo of the day #2858: Several years ago I was on a college speaking tour that routed me through New Mexico and Arizona. I loved that tour! This photo is from a snowing morning, when I made a stop in Sedona between college shows in Arizona.

One brave frog

One brave frog

Marty’s photo of the day #2857: This tree frog, in the Amazon Rainforest of Peru, was fearless—letting me approach to within inches of her face.

Marty’s photo of the day #2856: Here’s a scenic shot from northern British Columbia.

Martyman celebrates National Beer Day

Martyman celebrates National Beer Day

Today is National Beer Day, and Martyman and his little cowfriend, Brett Calve-in-naugh, intend to celebrate the day to its fullest. I’m not sure why Martyman enjoys hanging around with Brett Calve-in-naugh so much. All the cow does is moo and proclaim over-and-over in a whiny voice, “I drank beer with my friends. Almost everyone […]
