This morning Tony surprised me with something...get your minds out of the gutter...that I didn't expect. I now have an App for android that links to this blog: Ryan Field Naughty Guys with Strong Stories. I think the image on the App will be my latest release, Internal Desires.
It's also an interesting web site to create an App for almost anything. I'm not sure how this works with iPhone or iPad, but there shouldn't be any issues if you have an android.
You can get there from here to check it out, or download my App if you so desire, and you can read more about creating your own App for android.
I've been noticing a lot of things popping up for authors that never existed before. Yesterday I read about a web site where authors can create their own audio books. I'm not sure about the cost or what's involved. But here's a link to that in case anyone is interested. I definitely think it's something I'll check out in the near future.
Larry Flynt: Republicans are Racist
I hate to even post about things like this on a Friday in the summertime because it's so negative (and dumb). But there's a video circulating this week with publisher Larry Flynt where he claims he's never met, in his experience, a Republican who wasn't racist.
“I’ve been around for a long time,” he explained. “I’ve never met a Republican that wasn’t mean spirited and in his heart a racist. I never met one that wasn’t.”
The story, if you can even call it that, devolves into more drivel about how Republicans won't win another race in this country for years to come and about how poorly Republicans treat women. These comments from Flynt, for those who might not know, are coming from a man who some might claim objectified women in his publications for many years. I have no comment on that. But here's an interesting article from 1998 titled, A Feminist Critique and Protest.
The People vs. Larry Flynt is a highly manipulative movie designed by Director Milos Forman and Producer Oliver Stone to make a hero out of Larry Flynt, thereby fostering approval for pornography in general and Hustler magazine in particular. Following are some examples of the manipulative techniques used by these men.
I don't know what proverbial rock Larry Flynt has been living under, but I guess he's failed to notice there are some very strong and powerful Republican women. For the record, I'm a registered Democrat, and I usually vote Democrat, but I don't always vote strictly along party lines. For example, I would have voted for openly gay Presidential candidate, Fred Karger, had he actually been on the ballot. Fred Karger is also openly gay, supports gay marriage, and he's a Republican. I also know many Republicans who are not racist and do support gay marriage, many of whom are strong women with successful lives and careers.
I think some people, like Larry Flynt, will do anything humanly possible to remain relevant...even if what they have to say is completely irrelevant in a world that is constantly changing.
