The Lat Late Show

Talk Radio Podcast
The Lat Late Show Presents
The Lat Late Show takes the form of a series of shortwave radio transmission sent across the astral planes from a home Pole (dimension) known as “The Monkey Room Behind the Closet”. These transmissions are segmented radio shows hosted by two Logos (AKA gods) called “The Corduroy King” and “The Logos Man”.
Collectively, these two Logos run the rusted old tin shack with the giant radio dish sprouting from the roof like a twisted bonsai tree, which functions as a hub of communications among the astral planes. Think of these transmissions as an S.O.S. sent across the planes for travelers lost among the Poles… ...

The Energy of a Stone

The Energy of a Stone

Short Fiction
Jonathan Darren Garcia
Rosemary Journal #1
4/Virgo/2009
.
I tried to kill myself. Still, I lay here like a rigid stone etched with scars and without pulse. It’s been rough getting that out, even on here. It was a moment of weakness on my part. I guess—I’ve had many moments of weakness… I really didn’t enjoy fading in and out of consciousness and seeing my mother in a panic though. That was a first for me.
I’ve been inside this hospital for about four days now. I have no access to anything here other than my journal and Whisper. I get to go outside for however long I want if the sun is out. Which is great because ...

Freddie The Hamster Revisited

Freddie The Hamster Revisited

Poetry
Michael P. Lefanto
They’re gonna leave me laying in my body waste
diapered in bed.
Waiting for the loser of the, no it’s your turn
I did it the last time argument, to come upstairs
and change me.
.
No doubt
I’ll end up begging them,
to let me please sell the house
find a cheap nursing home nearby.
Dancing around the obvious reasons.
Use the argument.
I don’t wanna be a burden
They have their own lives
to worry about now
.
And they’ll smile those
twenty-three hundred dollar
straight teeth smiles of theirs,
insisting they love me I’m their dad.
and won’t hear of such nonsense ...

Eagle vs. Tiger: The Economic Undercurrents in America’s Trade War with China

Eagle vs. Tiger: The Economic Undercurrents in America’s Trade War with China

Commentary
Jonathan Dinsmore
Is America’s trade war with China due to their communism, or is there a subtler economic motive, involving differences of opinion about capitalism and it’s relationship to the state? Why is China doing so well economically, and why does the capitalist West see this as a threat? Is it merely because arrogant Americans don’t want to be outdone, or is there something more to the plot? The story of modern history is, among other things, a story of economic models. The gradual transition of much of the world from tyranny to democracy and capitalism around the time of the enlightenment opened a variety of possibilities, and of course, the communist opposition. Mostly, these possibilities revolved around the ...

Bonswa, Saint-Jean

Short Fiction
Patrick Karl Curley
Staring out the window, Sebastian saw the brash, orange sun of early morning set fire to the tails of trailing clouds. He saw three quarrelling grackles swirling downward to the scorched ground; the tortured, singed grass; the ragged reeds and flies and crow feathers caught on tangles of rusty, broken barbed wire which came away from a fence-post and down in a fractured spiral to the cracked soil. It had been dry for several weeks, but it would surely rain today.
An arabesque of emotion uncurled inside him when he thought of that delicate, happy face and those smiling, azure eyes. The scent of her skin was still upon him. He wanted to thank her ...

Coping Skills

Coping Skills

Poetry
Matthew Borczon
My special
needs son
is laughed
at and bullied
in school
because when
he gets
upset he
either explodes
into curses
and anger
or he
cries displaying
what his
therapist calls
his emotional
real age
the other
kids find
either response
hilarious and
a distraction
from their
school day
so they
push his
buttons until
the show

Germany: Liberal Democracy is Rotting from its Core

Germany: Liberal Democracy is Rotting from its Core

Politics
Matthew D. Rose
Most German establishment political parties have turned away from striving for a better society. In recent decades they have become profit-oriented service companies in a billion euro industry: selling laws, permits, public contracts, even protection, as we are seeing in the case of Volkswagen’s diesel defeat device, to the highest bidder. These parties have sold their autonomy and become a consolidated committee to manage the affairs of corporations and the wealthy ...
