THANK YOU FOR FINDING THIS PLACE…… I may not be the Patrick Carlin that you’re looking for. I think there are about 90 Patrick Carlins in the U.S.A. and if half of them are as fucked up as I am, well that’s an interesting and scary thought You want to get a big dose of humility? Dial up your name on Google. Then remember that you are 1/7,000,000,000, One seven billionth of a failed species on a speck of dust orbiting an average-sized star, in an average galaxy that is one of billions. I can’t help laughing whenever I hear the sentence, “Don’t you know who I am?” I fucking love it. “I sure do know who you are. That’s why I’m treating you like an asshole. Thirty days. Next case. Thanks for stopping by motherfucker!” Important people help me enjoy the funny side of life, but I digress.
I am the Patrick Carlin who just finished writing ¿Quien F!#kin’ Sabe?, a collection of quotes, poems, thoughts, and questions from imaginary folks I allow to hang out up in my head, the same guy who wrote Highway 23, The Unrepentant, a novel set in the early 50s, in Michigan. I call it an action/romance. REVIEW; Tom Deignan, Irish America Oct/Nov 2007. Highway 23, The Unrepentant is an historical novel of note. Set during the Korean War. Carlin’s book is about a 20 year old Irish-American named Eddie Flynn who falls in love while stationed in Michigan. Complete with disapproving parents, colorful scenery and forbidden passions, Highway 23 is a compelling period love story.
While assembling material for ¿Quien F!#kin’ Sabe? I ran into recurring characters like Mister Romance, Allison Wonderland, Senator Argo Stropmore, 47811 Up Above, Frank The Wanderer and others. So I made up a newspaper where they all work. The Daily Shit, a happening newspaper about shit that’s happening looks like the papers in the old 1930s and 40s. Besides being featured in ¿Quien F!#kin’ Sabe? these fine folks will have Op Ed chunks on the website that are current. These excerpts from the Daily Shit and audios and/or videos from my wrap ups on sunday morning’s Woodstock Roundtable on WDST 100.1 There are also t-shirts available with ¿Quien F!#kin’ Sabe? on the front and Hopelessness is not a bummer on the back. Hopelessness Is Not A Bummer is a poem by Allison Wonderland. It’s in the book and it’s upbeat. The t-shirts are black and made in the USA. There’s also a beautiful poster of the P-O-T poem that I wrote back in 1976. Check it out.
