I Steal From Myself

The headline pretty much says it all. When it comes to copping material from myself, I’m a repeat offender. What’s funny about it, is that I often don’t realize I’m doing it. For instance, in my newest book Comedy Album, there’s a poem towards the end called Happy Hour. What I didn’t realize until justContinue reading “I Steal From Myself”

Radio Interview – Comedy Album

One of the hard parts about being an Indie author is…there are dozens of things which make being an Indie author difficult. For one thing, you are your own publicist. There’s no one in New York or Culver City making phone calls on your behalf. So the best you can do is the best youContinue reading “Radio Interview – Comedy Album”

A Few Words on Henry Rifle

My pen name was once Henry Rifle. It was a swell handle, one that rolled off the tongue real nicely. In addition to having a catchy ring to it, it’s also a real gun. According to Wikipedia, it was ‘the basis for the iconic Winchester rifle of the American Wild West.’ So I suppose thereContinue reading “A Few Words on Henry Rifle”

All are welcome here. Feel free to mingle. If you did come here via that QR code gateway,Continue reading “QR Code Blues”

A Few Last Thoughts on Comedy Album

If you know me, you know how ridiculous the title of this blog post is. Chances are, I’m barely even warmed up as far as talking about my new book – Comedy Album. But for now, let’s assume I’ll find a new angle quick enough and we’ll wrap this up real neat-like. Just know IContinue reading “A Few Last Thoughts on Comedy Album”

More Thoughts on Comedy Album

I did my first interview yesterday – promoting Comedy Album. It was interesting. That’s a muscle I haven’t flexed in quite some time. All in all, I think it was fine? Did I hit all my marks? No. Was I at least in the general vicinity of those marks? For the most part, yes. ButContinue reading “More Thoughts on Comedy Album”

Minneapolis Writer Releases Comedy Album – in Print

Minneapolis, MN – September 24, 2020 – Local writer Dan Hendrickson has released a comedy album, but not on vinyl. Instead, he’s transplanted the format to the printed page in Comedy Album, his newest collection of comedic verse. In the recent past, Hendrickson has sometimes referred to his genre as ‘cometry’ (a souped-up blend of comedyContinue reading “Minneapolis Writer Releases Comedy Album – in Print”

The Perils of Tightrope Walking

I’m not sure if you’ve seen the movie The Walk. If not, you really should. It’s a fictionalized account of the life of the guy who walked on a tightrope between the Twin Towers. It’s a really inspiring flick – entertaining, to boot! My favorite character in the film is Papa Rudy. Papa Rudy isContinue reading “The Perils of Tightrope Walking”

Thoughts on Comedy Album

I’ve written this book (the e-version of which is available now; hard copies later in September) called Comedy Album. How do I feel about it? How do I feel about it…? I feel pretty good about it. I guess it’s like Luke in the cockpit of his X-Wing Fighter, right after firing his shot atContinue reading “Thoughts on Comedy Album”
