We have a record store now August 11 2020

Record and book stores changed, shaped and saved my life. I spent more time in them than in school, and certainly learned more. As many of you know we have a bookstore in Hollywood and I’m happy to announce that we now carry many of those life changing records in that brick and mortar, The Daily Planet, and starting today, online in the Heartworm store. 

Come see us (in your best mask) at 5931 1/2 Franklin Ave in Hollywood.

The selection online is just the beginning, and we will be updating frequently as well as offering rare records in store.

Thank you for the continued support! I believe in independent stores, artists, musicians. We will continue to fight the good fight. 

With love, solidarity and gratitude.

Mail, Plague Poems, etc. July 09 2020

All copies have shipped. Please note that the USPS is taking longer than usual! The book is sold out but you can find remaining copies at The Daily Planet in Los Angeles, 5931 1/2 Franklin Ave 90028.

We are and will continue to ship safely to you during this era of COVID-19.

We have changed international shipping carriers to DHL and UPS only and highly encourage US orders to choose shipping through either of those as the USPS has been unpredictable, at best. While DHL and UPS fees are a bit higher, your order will be guaranteed to arrive safely and in a matter of days as opposed to the months the USPS has been taking.

Thank you for the continued support and it is our pleasure to provide inspiration, culture, and even a way to pass this wretched time.

Submission April 05 2020

The realization of the glacier we are up against is becoming more daunting, frightening and real by the day. I go through moments of calm to numb to nervous, all underlined by uncertainty, and admittedly with a glass or two of whiskey lately. 
Over the years many of you asked about submitting your poems to us to publish and there have been several instances where we wish we had the time to do so. Between our own output and tours it’s not entirely possible, yet, though one day we would love to open the door to more book releases.
So.. With an aim toward positive productivity, I want to offer an outlet to you, who may also find solace in writing, who may also be in need of an outlet, a medium. 
We are going to be posting video poems as often as we can to the Heartworm media outlets. If you are a writer, full time, part time, starting now, and would like to submit a video of you reading a poem of yours, please do so, and we will post some of them and link readers/viewers back to you. Simply record yourself and email your reading to 

Please remember to include your info in the email, namely name/title/and social media handle etc. The only rule is it has to be yours. Don’t be shy, there isn’t so much time for that. Our goal is to continue injecting the world with light however how beautiful or ugly that may be.
