Singing with Jamie Joe

Singing with Jamie Joe is a little unusual. Is it a dramatized reading, a play, or even a mini-musical? While it may be one or none of those things, it most certainly is a tragedy.

Note from Editor Wotif: If you listen. and think you can improve on the music. or know anyone with musical ability – PLEASE contact fastfictionpodcasts@gmail.com.  We know it can be improved and just need a little help. Thankyou.

Two Dykes on Bike

 

Two Dykes on a Bike is released to coincide with the Dykes on a Bike Mardi Gras in Sydney, celebrating the Gay and Lesbian Festival, on the 29th February,

Wannarbee Bond uses her P.E. sign to best effect by being a Private Eye/Pest Exterminator. But sadly she doesn’t often achieve

the intended outcome in either area. In fact, she rarely gets the bad guy, but happily, nearly always gets the girl.

We would love to hear if you liked this “Something Different” story, and there are many Wannarbee adventures ready to come your way.  Too Many Crooks Spoil the Plot … A Tyme to DieDeath by Fermentation, just to name a few.  They were originally released in Bullet Rock N’Roll Noir magazine, which is sadly, now, long forgotten. But if you would like a print copy, please write to fastfictionpodcasts@gmail.com, and we will be happy to send a copy.

Wannarbee stories follow the Mickey Spillane style of Pulp Fiction, which we acknowledge is not politically correct anymore. But as Mickey Spillane used to say, “there are more people buy peanuts than caviare.”  So, grab your peanuts and sit back and enjoy a little old fashioned fun.

The Crock Pot and Death Valley

The Crock Pot and Death Valley is a departure from our usual fast fiction. It is a true story. Maybe not a big one in the scheme of what had happened back in 1969. But it had a big impact on our family. And it all came back to us when watching Quentin Tarantino’s recent move, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.*

We would also like to advise we have a ‘Sister’ podcast dealing with film. Please click on link BreandafromBrisbane.com. If you are interested in film, you just may find our new episode of interest.

Thank you.

Charles Manson and Family:  In 1969 Charles Manson’s cult of mostly female followers undertook a frenzied drug-induced killing spree in Hollywood.  This included the violent repeated stabbing of the beautiful and heavily pregnant starlet Sharon Tate. The killings were so violent two books and three films have been released about the event. Once Upon a Time in Hollywood is the fourth.

A lucky break

A lucky break is a story of today’s news. A lonely farmstead, a husband and wife with domestic issues. Then finally – a resolve. Yet it is just possible this is a slightly different story than first thought. It is also worth giving a little though at the end with a “Wotif”. See what you think. And please, let us know. We love to hear from folk who live in a far different landscape than that illustrated in our stories.

The #MeToo movement has changed how domestic relationships are viewed.
