Hello and thank you to readers who offered hopeful messages regarding the recent hospitalization of a loved one. As you would imagine that’s why the slowdown in fresh blog posts in the past few days. Things are going well so I should be back up to speed soon.

Brianna Wright is a very talented and lovely young lady from the U.K. She is an inventive writer and gifted poet who has a wonderful way of giving dramatic readings of her own work on her Youtube channel. This teen of many gifts is also an excellent swimmer and is home-schooled by her parents. Brianna’s family’s dog George the Whippet was a big hit here at Balladeer’s Blog a few years back so I was thrilled to get this interview with his intriguing owner. Read on for Brianna’s blog and Youtube information.

DEBRA D’ANDREA – In general I workout six days a week, five lifting weights and one extra day of cardio.
BB: With workouts and maintaining your business how does that break down on a daily basis?
DD: My days are always different but I usually start out with my emails. Then about 10:30 or so I hit the gym for two hours, after that it depends if I have a session or if I have more computer work to do. Sometimes I have a Continue reading
Jeannetta Joy has the sweet and musical voice of an angel. The greatest testament I can offer to the overpowering allure of her voice is the fact that it actually manages to momentarily distract you from the transcendental beauty of her face and voluptuous form.
Adding to Jeannetta’s considerable charm is her sharp wit and engaging personality along with the regal but courteous way she deals with the effect her presence has on the metabolisms of so many men and women. A very savvy business woman, Jeannetta runs her own line of merchandise and lives an independent life in which she answers to nobody.
This entrepreneurial sex symbol recently granted Balladeer’s Blog an interview. For details about her new projects and how to go about laying your hands on some Jeannetta Joy merchandise read on:
BALLADEER’S BLOG: To start off how Continue reading

Anne Rice, Jerry Rice, Condoleeza Rice … and now Leslie Rice joins those cultural titans as the most celebrated Rice since Uncle Ben’s.
Leslie Rice aka Fear Fan, is the creator, writer, director and star of the web series Terror Obscura in which he offers his wry and incisive look at various horror films from the obscure (duh) to the mainstream and from enjoyably bad Golden Turkeys to genuine classics. In my opinion out of the countless web shows that offer film criticism Terror Obscura is the most consistently watchable and Rice’s commentary provides genuine analysis, not just a synopsis of the movie being reviewed.
Balladeer’s Blog’s recommendations would include Leslie’s detailed analysis of the Nightmare on Elm Street series plus his hilarious takes on stinkers like Funhouse and Godzilla vs MechaGodzilla. There are plenty of others to choose from including his new feature, Fright Bytes, in which Leslie offers much briefer takes on all things horror.
Growing up in St Louis, MO Mr Rice began flirting with horror films by viewing the movies his parents would let him rent from the video store at the end of the street. His youthful favorites included Godzilla, Rodan, the Universal horror films plus Old School science fiction like Forbidden Planet.
When he turned 16 Leslie took his earlier dabbling in horror films to the next level. Enjoying the new freedom offered by a driver’s license and the income from his first job, Fear Fan dove into the harder stuff like Nightmare on Elm Street, Predator, Candyman and Aliens.
The college years came along and Rice, still based in St Louis, put his enthusiasm to practical use by reviewing movies for the college newspaper and then for his internship. His move into online video reviews will be covered in the body of the interview.
Leslie’s early career as a riverboat pilot along the Mississippi has been extensively documented and I think we’re all very familiar with his heroics after the sinking of PT 109 (damn show-off) so I began the interview on a more personal note:
Balladeer’s Blog: How long have you been dating Lindsay Lohan?
Leslie Rice: Only since she’s hit rock bottom. We met when she drove her car through my living room, and we’ve been a thing ever since.
BB: What was “the senses-shattering origin” of your Terror Obscura webcasts?
LR: I’d just discovered a Continue reading
Balladeer’s Blog recently got to interview Philip Lee McCall II, best-selling author, reviewer, publisher and imaginist about his latest book, Ing The Viking. McCall’s previous works include The Imaginist and Poisonous Prose: A Limited Collection of Dark Rhymes (2 volumes).
All of those books are available at Amazon.com, plus McCall has The Imaginist II coming out in just over two months. The time seemed right to try to ride Mr McCall’s coattails to some more blog hits for myself (I’m kidding!) so I sent my private jet to pick him up and fly him to my spacious villa overlooking Japan’s Inland Sea.
We passed the time trying to spot one of the thousand dragons of the Shinto god Kotohira swimming in the waters below while “PLMII” as he’s called, graciously answered my interview questions.
Balladeer’s Blog: For the uninitiated could you provide an overview of Ing the Viking’s setting and raison d’etre?
PLMII: Ing the Viking is an anthology which collects the stories of a fabled Viking’s adventures. I worked with a group of fantasy artists to render art for each tale. I was honored to have the great Larry Elmore not only excited about the project but also provide two images for the book. This book was definitely a labor of love and homage to both Norse mythology and the Pulp fiction era. There are Continue reading
