Nature photography, political rants, and Martyman laughs from the ten-time award-winning author of "Cool Creatures, Hot Planet," "Endangered Edens," and the "Time Is Irreverent" series.

Charades with Martyman

Apparently, Martyman thinks Trump can kiss his ass,

Is Christianity as a force for good dead in America?

Is Christianity as a force for good dead in America?

Initially my Time Is Irreverent series of novels, where most of the villains are Christians, was a controversial concept. How quickly things have changed. Even after Donald Trump has proven himself to be an unstable, greedy, self-serving, lying, treasonous, hateful, bigoted, criminal, cheating, evil, sack of dung beetle diarrhea, he still has solid Christian support. […]

Vote out the führer. Don’t impeach!

Vote out the führer. Don’t impeach!

Yesterday Führer Trump tweeted: “I wonder if the New York Times will apologize to me a second time, as they did after the 2016 Election. But this one will have to be a far bigger & better apology. On this one they will have to get down on their knees & beg for forgiveness-they are […]

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, […]

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: […]

Trump is in full asshole mode

Trump is in full asshole mode

So this week Crybaby Trump is in full asshole mode, attempting to take away health care for millions, trying to defund the Special Olympics, and declaring that Puerto Rico has received too much hurricane relief. This doesn’t surprise me. Trump is exactly the same uncaring, unethical, incompetent, criminal buffoon anyone with critical thinking ability knew […]

Bad Martyman! Bad Martyman!

Bad Martyman! Bad Martyman!

Bad Martyman! Bad Martyman! My wife, Deb, is out of town, teaching weaving classes in Oregon. Those who follow my posts know that when she is gone, Martyman and I must fend for ourselves—and that invariably means making some banana bread to stretch my otherwise uncreative cooking. Well, today I had two loaves ready to […]

Malaysian feather snake?

Malaysian feather snake?

Marty’s photo of the day #2806: Any guess what you are looking at? Is it a Malaysian feather snake? Is it an Arctic pipe cleaner fish? Is it the Great Salt Lake monster? ˙ʇɔɐɟ ɐ pɹɐǝɥ ʇsnɾ ʇɐɥʇ uɐʍs ɹǝʇ-ʇı-dɯnɹʇ ɐ s,ʇı :ɹǝʍsuɐ

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez—making Republicans so, so afraid.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez—making Republicans so, so afraid.

By making Democratic Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez their latest supervillain, the Republicans are unwittingly doing her a favor. She’s already more well-known than many who have served in congress for 30 or more years. I watched the Ocasio-Cortez interview on 60 Minutes last night, and she was poised and intelligent. She’s also on the correct side […]

It Trump really a fascist?

It Trump really a fascist?

Is Donald Trump actually a fascist? Although I often criticize the incompetent twit, I’ve tried to avoid exaggerating by blatantly calling him a fascist. Then I saw this: “The Democrats could solve the Shutdown problem in a very short period of time. All they have to do is approve REAL Border Security (including a Wall), […]

Back to normal in the good old USA!

Back to normal in the good old USA!

I woke up thinking, now that all the election craziness is over, it will be nice to get back to normal for a while. I went on my morning bike ride, settled into my writing room, booted up my laptop, checked my emails, checked my overnight book sales, and maneuvered over to Huff Post. Greeting […]

Republicans fearmonger socialism

Republicans fearmonger socialism

One thing amazing about the Republican Cult is how easily they are able to get everyone in line for something to be scared about. Last election it was brown people, and the result was Treason Trump—“anointed by God.” This election it’s socialism, and they have made Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez their “monster” to be afraid of. With […]

A secret message from the Republican Jesus

A secret message from the Republican Jesus

“Psst . . . Hey, ammosexuals and fetish patriots . . . Republican Jesus here. Sorry to have to hide in your refrigerator like this, but I have a super-secret message for you that has to remain just between you and me. I know you have two major fantasies: “Your first fantasy is that you […]

The longest migration on Earth

The longest migration on Earth

Marty’s photo of the day #2594: This is a tiny segment of the Porcupine caribou migration. These caribou migrate between Canada and the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge in Alaska. Their 800 mile-long migration is the longest of any land animal on Earth. Now that the Republican cult and Rut Leader Trump have opened up the […]

Scared of Eagles and Lynx? Have a military parade!

Scared of Eagles and Lynx? Have a military parade!

Much is being made in the news about President Crybaby Chickenshit uninviting the Super Bowl Champion Philadelphia Eagles from their White House visit. What deserves just as much attention is that President Crybaby Chickenshit was too cowardly to even initiate a visit from the WNBA Champion Minnesota Lynx. Yes, President Crybaby Chickenshit was too scared […]

Puerto Rico electric vs paper towels

Puerto Rico electric vs paper towels

Marty’s photo of the day #2518: In honor of the Minnesota Twins vs. Cleveland Indians baseball games in Puerto Rico this week, I’m digging into my Puerto Rico photos. The series ended last night with each team winning a game. In yesterday’s post, I mentioned that the final game would be “electric,” with Twins’ Puerto […]

Baseball and boas

Baseball and boas

Marty’s photo of the day #2517: In honor of the Minnesota Twins vs. Cleveland Indians baseball games in Puerto Rico this week, I’m digging into my Puerto Rico photos. The island really needs these games as a pick-me-up, after the Trump administration botched the hurricane recovery efforts (they have enough paper towels now, however). Both […]

The first major review of Time Is Irreverent

The first major review of Time Is Irreverent

The normal process for books is to submit them to major reviewers months before publication, so that their comments can appear on the release date. Because Time Is Irreverent satirically skewers today’s Republicans and predicts their future course, I couldn’t follow the normal process and risk that it become dated before its release. Not that […]

Time Is Irreverent is now available!

Time Is Irreverent is now available!

We’re early. Time Is Irreverent became available today! At this moment the only place to buy the book is on Amazon, but that will change in a few weeks. The trade paperback (with the silky-feel cover) is $14.95, and the Kindle version is specially priced at $2.99. The special Kindle price is very short-term—just long […]

Why I’m not watching tonight’s State of the Union Address

Why I’m not watching tonight’s State of the Union Address

I don’t think I’ve missed a State of the Union address in twenty years. But quite frankly, my time is more valuable than another Donald Trump performance. I know what’s going to happen anyway—and you probably do too: 1) Trump will pretend to be sane for the hour or so he speaks. 2) The media […]
