    Holly Stephey & RJ Comer new solo career & The Dance Hall Pimps!

    in Entertainment

    RJ’s a city boy with swamp water in his veins, a profound disappointment to his parents, and the banjo-wielding front man of the blues rock show band Dance Hall Pimps. RJ’s Americana solo project fuses moody dark troubadour, classic smoky jazz, blues, and rock—taking him back to the days of playing music in bad places and sometimes fighting his way out of there. His unconventional use of plectrum banjo caught the attention of Deering Banjo Company, which included him among Deering’s sponsored artists.In 2009, RJ launched his first band the Dance Hall Pimps, who were quickly approached by two record labels. In 2012, the Dance Hall Pimps released their debut LP, Beast for Love, on Lakeshore Records. RJ and the Dance Hall Pimps recently released their second LP The Dead Don’t Walk—which dropped November 5, 2013 (Growling Moon Records).John Schneider (Dukes of Hazzard) asked RJ to write the title track to his horror/comedy “SMOTHERED”. Six Dance Hall Pimps tracks are also on the soundtrack.RJ is currently working on his solo album, due out in 2014. There’s talk of him going to New Orleans to make the record.

    RJ Thesman,"Intermission for Reverend G"

    in Books

    Three months after a fire ripped through Cove Creek Assisted Living Facility, repairs are complete, but even as Reverend G and her cat, Gabriel move back into their apartment, the retired pastor realizes life just isn’t the same. She continues to minister to her fellow residents — the widower who reads the same book over and over and the woman who waits by the front door for the family who never arrives. Even Gabriel is back at work, making his rounds and forecasting death. But while Reverend G is able to find the words to conduct a funeral service, anticipates the birth of her first grandchild and plans her future with her beloved, Chris, she battles her worsening Alzheimer’s symptoms — memory loss, paranoia, anger and fear. Now, her worst nightmare seems to be coming true. God hasn’t spoken to her in weeks. Has Reverend G lost her connection with God?


    RJ Thesman has been a writer since she flipped open her Red Chief tablet and scribbled her first story. After writing 4 non-fiction books and almost 500 articles, she woke up one day with a novel in her head. That novel became "The Unraveling of Reverend G."


    Thesman enjoys teaching writing workshops and helping writers birth their words. She is a certified life coach, works as a writing coach and as a coach for women who are Starting Over Single.


    Thesman is the mother of an adult son, and she enjoys reading, gardening and cooking - especially anything with blueberries. Thesman lives in the heart of Kansas with her son and an elderly cat.

    Gaius Publius & RJ Eskow: Progressive Politics Following the NY Governor's Race

    in Current Events

    What does it mean for progressive politics that Zephyr Teachout and Tim Wu won 35% and 40% of the New York state vote, respectively, in an almost-unfunded campaign against entrenched Democratic incumbent Andrew Cuomo?


    What does it mean for office-holders like NY Mayor Bill DeBlasio to have supported Cuomo and his conservative-leaning running mate Kathy Hochul?
    Gaius Publius & RJ Eskow explore the consequences of Democratic party leaders'  continued espousal of unpopular positions in a time of progressive change. What does the New York Democratic primary battle tell us? What does it mean for the party in 2016?
