I read a lot of Bizarro genre books. Over the past couple of months, I’ve become internet friends with some of the authors. They write some of the most demented stories, but are really quite nice & polite people. It’s kind of odd, cause the authors that write “normal” stories have been kinda nasty to me.
One of the authors I’m friends with is Kevin Shamel. He wrote “Rotten Little Animals”. It’s this completely deranged story about animals kidnapping a little boy and making him act in their movies. Tbis was a fabulous book & I LOVED it.
In it there are Zombie cats. Kevin made Zombie cat sock puppets. He puts on Zombie cat puppet shows, and youtube videos to help promote his book.
A couple days ago, I was feeling really blah.I watched one of his Zombie cat videos, 167 times, and laughed like an idiot each time. Obviously, It cheered me up quite a bit. They’re really silly.
The other day, when I was talking to him, he suggested that I make my own Zombie cat sock puppet. So, just for him I’m going to attempt it.
