A DAY IN LOVE WITH YOU

Posted July 17th, 2020
It’s WORLD EMOJI DAY. If you were on twitter, you would KNOW this. It’s TRENDING! I am going to use this as an excuse to re-post a video I made for a song by Mr. Andy Prieboy.  The premise here was that words are going away, and all we are going to use to communicate with are Emojis. Therefore a love song is going to have to be reduced to it’s pure Emojian essence. As we embrace this inevitablity, please enjoy the first example of what will surely be The NEW Love Song. Read more

WE SAW SCENERY

Posted July 16th, 2020
This is the cover of my first graphic novel. It goes on sale October 20….just a week before the election. Because I fully expect it to be suffocated under an avalanche of Trump bullshit, I have decided to start to pimp it now.  I wrote it and Illustrated it. So see? Six years of art school finally paid off fifty years later. This is an uncorrected draft of the cover. it contains several misspellings. Do not be alarmed. They will be corrected in the copy I expect you to buy. Are you my best friend or are you not? Well I guess we’ll see, won’t we. Here is a link to an Amazon page where you can pre-order it. I hope you like it. All my friends seem to like it. And they are NO SLOUCHES.https://www.amazon.com/We-Saw-Scenery-Diaries-Merrill/dp/1616209038/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&qid=1594960234&refinements=p_27%3AMerrill+Markoe&s=books&sr=1-1 Read more

The Indignities of Being a Woman: an audio book

Posted July 16th, 2020
In 2019, I co-wrote (with Megan Koester) an Audible Original called The Indignities of Being a Woman. It can be found here:https://www.audible.com/pd/The-Indignities-of-Being-a-Woman-Audiobook/B07GDPQRPC?ds_rl=1262685&ds_rl=1263561&ds_rl=1260658&source_code=GO1GB907OSH060513&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIv9Km5J-k6AIVitlkCh0N0QVsEAAYASAAEgJJEPD_BwE&gclsrc=aw.ds Its the hideous history of women being fucked over since the dawn of civilization as we search for the answer to the question “How did 51% of the population become a minority.”  We find out. And we try to make it funny. I am told it’s really funny and fun to listen to. but it’s a horrifying story.  AND it has music by Andy Prieboy! Here is the original cover:     If you aren’t sold already, here is a little promo movie I made to the theme Mr. Prieboy wrote for us. This should do it: Read more
