Journal of Grievances by Geoffrey Dicker
New York, NY (September 18, 2016) – Poet and blogger Geoffrey Dicker announces his fourth book, ”JOURNAL OF GRIEVANCES” which will be available to purchase through Amazon on September 20, 2016. The book marks Dicker’s first novel, a fictional autobiography, told in an unconventional way – through daily journal entries.
The official synopsis of JOURNAL OF GRIEVANCES:
Warning: this book is recommended for immature audiences only. It contains ridiculous amounts of adult language and really twisted situations. “Journal of Grievances” is a controversially raw and uncensored look into the ups and downs (both in and out of the bedroom) of a struggling, single gay male writer in New York. Told through daily journal entries on his year long approach to 40, the protagonist spills his guts with hilarious wit as he waxes philosophically and analyzes his raunchy sex life, drug addictions, debauched relationships, life encounters, and his frustrations with society while navigating through relationship drama and job-loss as he struggles to find his place in the world. This is Geoffrey Dicker’s first novel. He asks that if you are easily offended by profanity or graphic depictions of gay sex to please not buy this book. Alternately, he advises the reader to flip to any page and promises that within 2 sentences, you’ll be laughing.
“I’d like to think of this book as a gay loner version of ‘Sex and the City’ meets ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’ meets ‘Catcher in the Rye,’ in other words – it’s completely fucked up! It’s an unconventional coming of age story with zero filters and even less apologies. All of the characters in this story remain nameless because what matters are their actions and how they affect the main character. Despite the story containing generous helpings of extreme gay sex, I think people – straight or gay – will relate to the situations and moral dilemmas the main character often finds himself in,” Dicker says.
He continues, “I’ve read so many books that never teach me anything new or make me think differently or at the very least, make me smile. JOURNAL OF GRIEVANCES will make the reader do all of these things, hopefully repeatedly. There are 11 months worth of daily journal entries and one month worth of random ideas, including a short story told almost exclusively in the F-word. You’ll never be the same again after reading this book.”

This book is my response to some of the good and not so good things I’ve experienced on line as well as some satire on social (and anti-social) media and the current state of the world. Plus, there are 365 exclusive color photos of celebrities!” Dicker said.

Lots of nudity features in the artwork for the singles on this album. Above is Stephen Klein’s photo for “Gypsy.”

The infamous meat dress is on display (though it looks a little bit like beef jerky now).
One Second I’m A Koons Then Suddenly The Koons Is Me

Michael Jackson's Vision - Available November 22, 2010. GET IT!
You can say whatever you want about Michael Jackson, but one thing cannot be denied – the King of Pop sure knew how to make an entertaining music video. “Michael Jackson’s Vision,” features 4 and a half hours of every video Michael Jackson made, including the previously unreleased video for the R. Kelly penned song “”One More Chance.” The picture quality has been restored and the audio has been remastered because Legacy Recordings wants you to have the best MJ viewing experience possible. Michael Jackson liked to think of these as “short films” instead of “music videos” and I find it nearly impossible to hear songs such as “Beat It,” “Billie Jean,” “Thriller,” “Black or White” and “Bad” without picturing images from the films in my head. There have been many incomplete collections of videos released over the years, but “Michael Jackson’s Vision” finally brings together the complete package. This 3 DVD box set is going to be a huge hit over Christmas and beyond and it’s totally worth it! In addition to all the great content on the discs, a booklet featuring rare production photos and shooting location details accompanies the set. For those wondering, the unedited version of “Black or White” makes its DVD debut and though it features an at the time scandalous crotch grabbing sequence, it also has one of the most soulful dance routines Jackson ever committed to video. Watching these videos makes it even more tragic that people waited until Jackson died to celebrate his life after he became a victim of tabloid scandals; however, Michael Jackson’s Vision will live on forever. “Michael Jackson’s Vision” is released on November 22, 2010. According2g, this is a must have!
