Reid’s Mailing List

15th October 2016 by admin No Comments

Sign up for my free mailing list! It’s available here and absolutely free. Did I say free? Yes, that too.

Here’s my promise, I will not spam you. I will not send more than one email a week to you. In fact, I’m usually so far behind, I’ll be lucky to get one out a month. But I’ll definitely send out an email when I’ve got something you might be interested in reading like new books, audiobooks, recipes, grocery lists, and the like.

By the way, on the newsletter sign-up form, it asks you for your address. If you don’t want to give it, I understand completely. I promise, I’m not going to show up at your house and ask to crash on the couch and do laundry for a weekend. But as you probably know if you follow me on social media, I wind up in a lot of weird places and I love to send postcards, so everytime I go somewhere to write, I’ll just randomly send out postcards to people who’ve signed up for my email list. It’s just my little way of saying thank you for encouraging my behavior.



Getting a Do-Over on This NFL Season

15th October 2017 by admin No Comments

My humor column for the Tyler Morning Telegraph newspaper is up now, featuring my picks for NFL Week Six. In it, you’ll find semi-insightful commentary like…

Tampa Bay (-1.5) at Arizona: Adrian Peterson is the new Emmitt Smith. And by that I mean he’s a Hall of Fame running back whose last year in Arizona will be completely forgotten.
Pick: Bucs to win and cover, winning by two or more.

Check it out, kids. As always, no wagering.



The Accidental Wedding

14th October 2017 by admin No Comments

Dropped in to a local pub with some friends after the show this afternoon. It’s four on a Saturday, and suddenly we hear a saxophone playing “Careless Whisper.” Turns out there was an impromptu wedding there. Even though the couple wasn’t technically getting married, they still had a bar ceremony. Bizarre? Absolutely, but these are the kinds of things that happen in my life, my friends.

By the way, the couples first dance song? A solo saxophone rendition of the Scorpions “Still Loving You.” It fit perfectly.

For those of you who remember last year’s#Kerricane2016, this comes almost a year to the day from when we saw a bar-top-dancing bride almost get decapitated by a ceiling fan on Anna Maria Island. It’s always an adventure.



I Hate It Here: A Love Story

13th October 2017 by admin No Comments

I’m doing a Local Author Show at the Boone County Library this weekend, for those of you interested in buying my book, “I Hate It Here: A Love Story” (an Amazon Top 10 Travel Book, and also a Top 20 Humor Book) you can find it on Amazon.com.

It’s a collection of stories from my adventures on the road, in which a long series of bizarre things happen to me, because that’s what always seems to happen. If you click on the Amazon link, you can read most of the first adventure. Or you can just buy it, which is what I’d prefer.

For more details on the book including sample chapters, the Audiobook, and more of my random stories, just click here to join my mailing list.

Here’s my promise for my mailing list, I will not spam you. I will not send more than one email a month to you. In fact, I’m usually so far behind, I’ll be lucky to get one out a year. But I’ll definitely send out an email when I’ve got something you might be interested in reading like new books, audiobooks, recipes, grocery lists, and the like.

It’s just my little way of saying thank you for encouraging my behavior.

By the way, my first book, the comedy “The Great Texas Trailer Park Escape” was originally published by Biting Dog Press, and will be back in print by Christmas. Some reviews for the book:

“Kerr’s uncanny sense of humor and view of the world make for an entertaining read that will keep you smiling”
— Sara Brooke (Kransen House)

“Some people are good writers. Some are natural-born story tellers. They aren’t the same thing. Reid Kerr is one of those smart asses who belongs in both camps. The Great Texas Trailer Park Escape is incriminating evidence in his defense. If you don’t laugh at it, you must not have a mouth.”
— Tim Bryant (Dutch Curridge)

“Reid Kerr is Carl Hiaasen, Molly Ivins, Kinky Friedman and Tom Robbins in one package.”
— Andrew (review from Amazon)

The Great Texas Trailer Park Escape

The Great Texas Trailer Park Escape

“Reid is one funny mother but downright treasonous. How dare he write Texans with such hilarious accuracy.”
— Travis Erwin (The Feedstore Chronicles)

“Reid is my favorite American-born English writer.”
— Matt Bellner (Mattie 5 Films)

“This is one ridiculously funny book.”
— Chris (review from Amazon)

“If Carl Hiaasen lived in East Texas instead of Florida, this is what it would sound like! This was a fast and fun read that captured the craziness of the locals with stunning accuracy. Thumbs up!”
— Todd (review from Amazon)

“Reid Kerr is funnier than any one human being has a right to be.” 
— L. Scallorn (review from Amazon)

If you’d like an email when it’s available, just join the free mailing list. Thanks!

 

 



The College Football Face or “The Surrender Cobra”

24th September 2017 by admin No Comments

My absolute favorite thing about college football TV broadcasts? The reaction shot of the stunned college student with his hands on his head.
I back up the DVR and watch them again every single time. Welcome to life, kids.



Habitat

Early morning Habitat For Humanity. I hope there’s an open bar. If not, that’s the first thing we should build.

NFL: Best and Worst of Week Two

21st September 2017 by admin No Comments

My column is up at ETFinalScore.com, with semi-insightful commentary like “San Francisco’s Brian Hoyer is somehow the 35th ranked quarterback in the league, which is like saying Oklahoma is your 57th favorite state.”

Check it out, kids.



The Deli Trash Bash

19th September 2017 by admin No Comments

McAllisters Deli, I love you, but we’ve got to talk. You need to find some way to store all the food for your catering orders that doesn’t scream “New York City Garbage Workers Strike, Day 34.

Love,

Reid



Friday Night’s Alright (For Drinking)

15th September 2017 by admin No Comments

A Friday night in Sugartit means long lines at the liquor store.

“Give me a bottle of anything that makes Kentucky blurry.”



Flight Terms

14th August 2017 by admin No Comments

Thank you alerting me to your travel specials, Allegiant. Perhaps in the future you could use a better phrase for your flight than “Hit the ocean,” as that does not sound like a good way to end a trip in your plane.

I would also suggest not using the terms “crash into vacation” or “prices are plummeting like they’ve lost engine power over the Atlantic.”

All my best,

Reid



The Little Victories

4th June 2017 by admin No Comments

Once upon a time, I was young and I had big dreams, plans and schemes to change the world. Now I feel like I’ve won some kind of contest when I can remember to get my grocery bags out of the trunk before I walk in the store.

Little victories, you see.



My NFL New Year’s Resolutions

1st January 2017 by admin No Comments

My NFL week seventeen sports humor column is up here, from the pages and website of the Tyler Morning Telegraph.

It features lines like these…

I resolve to not watch Texans games until they change offensive philosophies and try and gain more than a yard per play.

I resolve to never underestimate Bill Belichick, no matter what. It doesn’t matter if he’s starting a rookie quarterback, has a team full of tiny white wide receivers, and he forgot to bring a punter, I will assume that evil mastermind will still find a way to win the game.

Carolina (+5.5) at Tampa Bay: All the Buccaneers need to make the playoffs is a win, five other teams to win, two teams to tie, two bus wrecks and a power outage, and they’re in.



The 2016 NFL Year In Review

28th December 2016 by admin No Comments

My new sports humor column is up today, it’s in the pages of the Tyler Morning Telegraph, and also online at their website.

It’s my end-of-year timeline, featuring hopefully funny observations like…

APRIL: On day two of the draft, chaos rules as the Cowboys take a guy who won’t play this year, Tampa Bay trades up to grab a kicker, and Oakland drafts a goalie. Somewhere along the way, Dallas stumbles into drafting two different MVP candidates, thereby using up all of their luck for the next hundred years.

MAY: The Cowboys find out Randy Gregory has been suspended for four games for violating the NFL’s substance abuse policy, after originally failing his scheduled drug test at the NFL Draft Combine, which is like showing up for church drunk.

SEPTEMBER: Football returns to Los Angeles after more than twenty years away. The Rams celebrate their new home losing by four touchdowns to a team that can only beat the Rams. L.A. fans celebrate by looking at their phones.

Check it out in print or online, kids.

Reid Kerr talks a lot, as his wife always reminds him. Reid’s second book, “I Hate It Here: A Love Story,” is out now on Amazon.com. You can always tweet questions, comments, and angry messages to him at @reidaboutit.
