“I Mash Potatoes On My Face, What You Do Today?, by Irish Brian Kelly”

I developed a character—eh, another pseudonym: Irish Brian Kelly—in the mid 2000s to compose poor haikus and monologues under the anti-influence of great Irish writers like James Joyce, Oscar Wilde, YB Yeats, and Bono. Lol. It started as a writing exercise rooted in poor grammar—intentional in tone—that developed into a collection of material that I felt was worth compiling circa 2015 for a book. And here we have it— “I Mash Potatoes On My Face, What You Do Today?” by another alter-ego of mine, Irish Brian Kelly. It’s available on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and other online retailers. Thank you to Jesus Correa, incredible, inspiring midwest artist in almost any media you can think of, for illustrating the book’s cover for me at my personal request. I had been looking forward to working with Jesus on something, and this was it. We met in the late 2000s on a music / performance project of his, “Say Yes To The No-Nos,” that I felt perfectly summarized the midwest, its music scene and arts community, without explaining it. I released my 174 page book of shitty haikus and monologues another the pseudonym of Irish Brian Kelly with my publishing imprint, Life Artners Publishing, in late 2015.
