(Atlantic Ocean from Rockaway Beach – Daguerreotype by Joe) Only moments had passed since I reached the beach, having jumped over the side of a ghost ship and swam to save what was left of my life. I collapsed in the wet sand and focused on the sky with some trepidation. Burning bright colors began […]

(“Cold” by Joe) Dawn is the time for demonic creatures to crawl back into the shadows. And as that first dawn came after my soul had been stained by the demonic blood of both Black Sullivan and Toren the Bloody, for me, it was a time to die…   At the instant the new sun […]

(“Sailboat Moving Between Past And Present” by Joe) Present Day The pizza and Chinese delivery guys(aka num and nuts) are avoiding me. Like I care. I don’t! It’s a good thing. My lady friend(who has tuned me and my blog off of late, I’m just saying…) says it’s because of what I’m writing about in my […]

The Glove – A Major Motion Picture

(The Glove – A Film) I just posted this film on YouTube. It was a heck of a lot of work, but I’m very happy with the final product. For years I’ve been thinking about doing audiobooks in the documentary style. Probably since the early 90’s when I saw an Anne Rice documentary, which had […]

Black Is The Night

(Black Sullivan) Our gang of twelve headed south on Henry Street, where the strong light from gas lamps made the stars disappear. The smells of manure and vanilla hung heaviest in the air. The vanilla had my head juggling in wonderment as to its origin. My eyes passed over old wood-framed shops and homes, along […]

(Black Sullivan And His Girls – A Film) This is my third Bald Punk “film.” As promised, I put more work into this one. As a matter of fact, I’m calling it a major motion picture. After four plus years of working on this blog, I can finally see one of my initial visions of creating an Internet film […]

(Black Silk Glove by Joe) Around seven in the morning I left Black Sullivan’s saloon. I went back to the firehouse and fell into a death-like slumber. I roused for a short while in the afternoon and found a woman’s black silk glove in my hand. I couldn’t figure out where it had come from and tossed it out my third-story bedroom window. When […]

Old Dan Tucker – The Film

(Old Dan Tucker – The Film) Ok! Here is my first BALD PUNK Film!!! It’s for Episode 43, Part II titled Old Dan Tucker. You might think it’s just an audio story, but I’m calling it a FILM. It’s a little rough, but over time my films will soon look really cool. I’m going Hollywood!!! Btw, that’s […]

(“At The Brothel,” circa 1850 – Photoshopped by Joe – Orig. below) “Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.” – Psalm 23:4 – Having just awoken, I threw open the window and looked […]

Old Dan Tucker

(Original Jim Crow) In the eyes of the men in the brass band I could see they were smiling. They did their best to play “Jump Jim Crow” and paid little mind to the black-faced minstrel singer named old Dan Tucker. He kept coming close to knocking into them. Dancing so crazed, he looked like a fighting cock. I guzzled another glass of spiced rum, and […]
