David Duchovny Paints the Town with Words

I was an X-Files fan from day one. But I did not understand Seinfeld until I moved to New York in 1997. I look back on both as shows that reveal the 1990s, at least in how folks use cell phones, and how technology changed through out the decade

Bucky Fucking Dent

With Seinfeld  – friends have often heard me say this – I did not like a show with such ridiculous, unrealistic characters. Then I moved to New York City and immediately remarked, Seinfeld is tame. I became a fan immediately – months after the famous wager. Seinfeld helped me transition into being a full time New Yorker, to the point a new cast mate in the Improv show remarked “You say ‘YADA YADA YADA’ a lot.”

I finally got through Bucky Dent and Miss Subways. This blog post is more born from experiencing Miss Subways but  thinking back both books are wonderful exposes on the city I love to call home.

I know every character in these books – Ted, Marty, Mariana, Emer, Con, Izzy yada yada yada…

Even Sidhe seems real, despite supernatural qualities. He is a New York Irish imp. My mother’s family is very New York Irish. I know this rhythm of speech. I cannot wait to see that scene when Sidhe first appears on the big screen. I am jealous of the actor who gets to deliver these lines.

After finishing chapter one of Miss Subways I had one thought, “BEEN THERE!”

Emer’s experience on the Subway – minus her #metoo issues with manspreader Manafort – is universal. That process of reading, and re-reading ads, poems and more (Every comic in NYC made jokes about that Lost and Found panel from a few years ago with a wooden leg) on the walls of the subway in an effort to avoid eye contact.


As a self aware actor, trained in physical performance (Alexander, Mime etc), I question how awkward must I look trying not to appear awkward. So much better when on way to an audition,, rehearsal or other focusing destination.

As Emer travels from socialite networking event to uptown building to sketchy China Town back rooms,  David Duchovny paints the town with his words. One could say the same as Ted discovers the magic of sweet plantains in Spanish Harlem – I pictured a particular coffee shop near the E125 Street Metro North station where I have eaten plantains before heading to Westchester or Connecticut for gigs

What I truly love about Miss Subways? I almost believe the supernatural elements of the novel. The same way I buy into the time travel magic of Midnight in Paris. These cities feel magical, especially at night. When the eyes get a little heavy, the lights seem to glow like a wizard’s orbs.

Even scenes of the Dragon King in Central Park and Emer’s descending into the hidden depths of New York’s forgotten Subway tunnels and stations, seem possible, if only slightly beyond belief as real.

The only thing I would have changed in either book? Ted and Marty should have seen far more traffic driving north on I-95. That drive can be pure torture. Driving to the climax, perhaps sitting on the interstate parking lot would have slowed the dramedy too much. The book, after all, was not titled I-FUCKING-95.

These books rival a Woody Allen movie in their love/hate relationship with the great city. New York is one of the characters. Combined with House of D, David is becoming quite the fictional chronicler of New York.

Miss Subways: The Movie

Miss Subways: The Movie. Sorry, no news of this project happening , but this post is about my sudden eagerness for this project.

Miss Subways: The Movie?

By Walt Frasier  @Waltfrasier

Working my way through David Duchovny’s latest novel, I have the constant nagging thought, I want this movie now, or the series, as David alluded to, to Brad I think, at the Barnes and Nobles May 1 book signing.

From the get go, David has captured the experience of riding on the IRT, BMT or IND trains. Anyone whom has spent any time in the New York underground can appreciate the avoiding eye contact by reading ads and poetry in motions on the walls.

As Duchovny also said May 1, a novel gets into the character’s mind in ways no TV show or movie could. He is right. So the heart of this novel, the inner thoughts of Emer, perhaps will be lost. Unless, perhaps, we get inner monologue.

Skip ahead to the chapter Emer meets Sid. The dialogue of this scene is begging celluloid like some great adult NYC version of Darby O’Gill. Sid’s witty banter begs an able actor’s craft. He is no Leprechaun, of course, but shares the sharp Irish tongue. I could be happy seeing this one scene as a short film.

One thing that sells all this novel on me?

Tea Leoni’s work in the audible book.

The voice acting is impeccable. The vulnerability, the deep understanding of Emer’s psyche, and the sadness revealed through each comical attempt at small talk simultaneously calls for laughs and tears.

I know this character. I have met this character so many times in NYC. I think at times I am a version of this character.

Like BFD, I know all the characters in this book (one for real, lol), even Sid, in some ways. I know this story, even the fantastical moments, in some ways.

New York is a fantastical place filled with fantastical characters. This feels like New York’s Midnight in Paris; Emer, the best female Woody Allen-like character I have met.

More to come on this work, but if you have not read Miss Subways yet, you are missing out. Add it to your summer reads.

Oh, and give David’s music a listen to appreciate a few references that much more.

Truth and NOTHING but the truth

We have recently expanded our staff. We now have a few fans helping us keep up with all of the projects David is Kicking out. Follow for original content and curated content from the web.


Miss Subways is now out and David is popping up all over to sign books.
This summer David is filming BUCKY F*CKING DENT the movie.

No new concerts scheduled but we are told more are coming soon.

We have some insights to other new projects but have been asked to keep those under wrap for now. AND unlike many folks on tumblr we respect the artists and their teams.

To that effect, I would like to recommit that we will NEVER post info about an artist’s private life, including lies about celebs, and especially lies about their family and friends. Paparazzi, ripped content from other fans/sites without acknowledgements, 20-25yo recycled photos we have all seen 1000s of times in our feeds, and certainly we will NEVER attack a fan for being themselves and simply trying to have fun.

I call on ALL to block those that do the above. This fandom has been rocked by bullies and garbage for far too long. ONLY way to shut it down is if we ALL shut it down. No reason to follow a feed because you fear they might be disparaging our fave celebs or other fans. You give them a voice. Attention is what they crave. ANY attention you give them feeds their ego, and in some case – pockets via google ads etc.

Supporting sites that do more to destroy than truly inform makes you part of the problem. It is time for us all to simply walk away from the garbage. They never leave the house so you are not losing a friend.

Lets keep the conversation to what happens on stage and screen, and other public events.

Try to minimize spoilers.

Say NO to ALL attacks on other fans. THIS makes no sense to me.

Say NO to stalking – going to public events is NOT stalking. Going to the film set or their house is. Don’t be creepy!!!

Respect an artist wishes. If they say no photos. STOP TAKING PHOTOS.

Everything off stage and screen IS NONE OF OUR BUSINESS!

If you are simply looking for gossip and to find justification for your sick fantasies and lies, please go elsewhere – mainly tumblr garbage – it’s out there but never the truth.

We are not here for personal attention. We are not here for profit. We are not here to bully.

We are here to discuss our fave show and other projects from our fave celeb and others in the family.

We are here to share experiences with friends from around the world,met through this fandom. THIS site does more to bring amazing people together than prop up the celeb that brought us together.


You do not have to be our friend or follower, but…
I see no reason to be our “enemy”
I see no reason to be a bully
I see no reason to spread lies
No reason to make others cry
If you feel the need to be or support the garbage on tumblr, I recommend you seek therapy for your anger and sadness. I assume you r the victim of abuse at some point. Your behavior is learned from other garbage. Stop the cycle.

 AVAILABLE TODAY ON AMAZONMiss Subways Emer is just a woman living in New York City who takes the subway, buys ice cream from the bodega on the corner, has writerly aspirations, and lives with her boyfriend, Con. But is this life she lives the only path she’s on? Taking inspiration from the myth of Emer and Cuchulain and featuring an all-star cast of mythical figures from all over the world, David Duchovny’s darkly funny fantasy novel Miss Subways is one woman’s trippy, mystical journey down parallel tracks of time and love. On the way, Emer will battle natural and supernatural forces to find her true voice, power, and destiny. A fairy tale of love lost and regained, Miss Subways is also a love letter to the city that enchants us all: New York.

 “Miss Subways” is a quirky, wholly original — and at times baffling — novel that tackles an Irish myth and gives it a contemporary spin, mixing it with legends and stories from other worlds. NYDAILYNEWS “Miss Subways” reads like a hybrid of the TV show “Twin Peaks” and the 1998 film “Sliding Doors” merged with a love letter to New York City. A wild and unpredictable journey from Duchovny’s bold imagination awaits readers.



Ted Fullilove, aka Mr. Peanut, is not like other Ivy League grads. He shares an apartment with Goldberg, his beloved battery-operated fish, sleeps on a bed littered with yellow legal pads penned with what he hopes will be the next great American Novel, and spends the waning days of the Carter administration at Yankee Stadium, waxing poetic while slinging peanuts to pay the rent.

When Ted hears the news that his estranged father, Marty, is dying of lung cancer, he immediately moves back into his childhood home, where a whirlwind of revelations ensues. The browbeating absentee father of Ted’s youth tries to make up for lost time, but his health dips drastically whenever his beloved Red Sox lose. And so, with help from Mariana―the Nuyorican grief counselor with whom Ted promptly falls in love―and a crew of neighborhood old-timers, Ted orchestrates the illusion of a Boston winning streak, enabling Marty and the Red Sox to reverse the Curse of the Bambino and cruise their way to World Series victory. Well, sort of.

David Duchovny’s richly drawn Bucky F*cking Dent explores the bonds between fathers and sons and the age-old rivalry between Yankee fans and the Fenway faithful, and grapples with our urgent need to persevere―and risk everything―in the name of love. Culminating in that fateful moment in October of ’78 when the mighty Bucky Dent hit his way into baseball history with the unlikeliest of home runs, this tender, insightful, and hilarious novel demonstrates how life truly belongs to the losers, and that the long shots are the ones worth betting on.

Bucky F*cking Dent is a singular tale that brims with the mirth, poignancy, and profound solitude of modern life.

A rollicking, globe-trotting adventure with a twist: a four-legged heroine you won’t soon forge

Elsie Bovary is a cow, and a pretty happy one at that–her long, lazy days are spent eating, napping, and chatting with her best friend, Mallory. One night, Elsie and Mallory sneak out of their pasture; but while Mallory is interested in flirting with the neighboring bulls, Elsie finds herself drawn to the farmhouse. Through the window, she sees the farmer’s family gathered around a bright Box God–and what the Box God reveals about something called an “industrial meat farm” shakes Elsie’s understanding of her world to its core.

There’s only one solution: escape to a better, safer world. And so a motley crew is formed: Elsie; Jerry–excuse me, Shalom–a cranky, Torah-reading pig who’s recently converted to Judaism; and Tom, a suave (in his own mind, at least) turkey who can’t fly, but who can work an iPhone with his beak. Toting stolen passports and slapdash human disguises, they head for the airport.

Elsie is our wisecracking, pop-culture-reference-dropping, slyly witty narrator; Tom–who does eventually learn to fly (sort of)–dispenses psychiatric advice in a fake German accent; and Shalom, rejected by his adopted people in Jerusalem, ends up unexpectedly uniting Israelis and Palestinians. In Holy Cow, David Duchovny’s charismatic creatures point the way toward a mutual understanding and acceptance that the world desperately needs.

AUCKLAND My New Fave Show – Kiwis turn out in spirit for David Duchovny #EveryThirdThought

AUCKLAND My New Fave Show – Kiwis turn out in spirit for David Duchovny #EveryThirdThought

If this is how David, Colin, Pat, Mitch, Keenan (Not Tom) and Seb set the tone for this tour, we are all in for many treats.

The VIPs entered the venue with their spiffy VIP badges tagged with both New Zealand Shows – which included all in our crew but me.

I went to pay the meter and hopefully find some free internet when a wonderfully nice lady popped out of her camper van RV. She had recognized my DUCHOVNIACS VIP pass (created for fun by one of our own @TKKarma).

“You must be headed to the show”  

At first she didn’t recognize the image of 10 year old David on my tee, but after a brief conversation I was invited in for wine and cheese. Inside she and her husband – hilarious with perfect impressions of Brooklyn and Red Necks – regaled of floating around the world on their boat. I was impressed. Soon later their two friends from Auckland joined in on the fun. e joked about being lured into strangers lair. I joked the wine and cheese in the van was like candy and ice cream for adults. We were meant for each other.

We all walked over to the venue and entered as General Admission guests. I quickly found fellow Duchovniacs and enjoyed the opening solo act guitar singer, who was also named David. He was great and a big Duchovny fan in his own right.

Then it was time for David and the band. Now that we have two albums plus bonus tracks, which tracks does one select for the live show? Everyone in the group had a different favorite and yet another regret for songs we did not hear live. Yet! 

Either way I think we all agreed this was one of the best shows David and the guys have ever staged. Every tune hit, David’s voice was impeccable and the band was beyond having a blast.

We have already heard a number of the new songs live over the past years. Every Third Thought, Half Life and Stranger in the Sacred Heart.  All these tracks have been infused by collaboration with every band mates input from the recording sessions.

Maybe I Can’t, which I thought was a bit weak in Vancouver, was phenomenal.  It fell right into place to let us catch our breath from bouncing and head bobbing. What a beautiful execution.

Quite notable were the singles from Hell or Highwater. Of course I’ve heard these songs live now more than a couple dozen times. But just as the new album reflects on the band’s deeper collaboration with David, many of these tunes had a bit of an over haul for the better.

Let it Rain was faster than I can ever remember at previous shows. Passenger had an interesting new guitar flair from Pat. Hell or Highwater itself was as good or better as expected.

Expecting the new songs to be more featured, I was surprised they followed EVERY THIRD THOUGHT (Opening Song) with 3000, and then ended with Positively Madison Ave. However, no regrets, especially as Pat virtually steals the show taking us home with that extended guitar solo. Always a show man – I already put the guy on a pedestal few could live up to – Pat surpassed and had more than a few kiwi jaws dropping. As I tweeted he may have damaged the guitar playing so intensely.


One of the weaker moments (relatively) was When the Whistle Blows. Still amazing, but the live mix was a bit lacking in David’s voice. The bluesy, grizzly low growl vocal utilized by David in this rocker requires a bit more microphone, as the lower range of any voice does not project as well naturally. But the band was still on fire – aka “lit AF.” I was also near the front where David’s monitors are so it’s possible the fans further back heard a better mix. Those of us that know the album rank “Whistle” as one of the best new songs. I’m probably being a bit picky here but it is worth noting, as I have so little to pick apart from this show as an amateur “critic”.

Of course I fear writing this next section (Only because it is not about a song David wrote)

Perhaps the true highlight of the evening, as the band comes back for a mini encore set, the guys play a rock band equivalent of the orchestra warming up. It is a cluster of tone, with cymbal rolls and subtle riffs. Mitch has set down the base for a guitar as he starts that simple chord pattern, akin to Tom Petty’s free falling. We are transported as Pat lays down some dissonant riffs, that simultaneously seem out of place and perfect. Musically there is a story of love and conflict. Then David sings, perhaps the best we have heard him ever. Sebastian later lays in some light percussion. By the end the band is rocking out.

As at the listening party, as I reheard via digital download of the album and as I am even now writing this little passage, I am moved to moist eyes listening / thinking to this amazing song.

This is how I experience Spiral.

A few were disappointed we did not get Marble Sun. My biggest regret was not hearing Last First Time live, yet.

There are so many gems that have not been played live yet, and old faves missed. We now are just starting to feel the angst of a Beatles or Stones fan that wishes for their lesser known favorite to appear on a set list.

Funny moment was when David and the band shared verses in The Weight (Cover for song by The Band). David put the microphone in the face of a young lady with no clue about the lyrics. I love their cover but have never understood the craze folks get for this song. I don’t know the words well either. But this is the MOST IMPORTANT SONG OF ALL TIME it seems for some.

Colin wowed all with his cover of Don’t Dream it’s Over by Crowded House. David said this song was too high for him but the band wanted to make sure they do a local band hit. David danced and entertained the crowd while the band played.

Like Europe, internet woes are keeping us from uploading faster. But we are trying. MUCH MORE to come… Also follow us to see some cool photos and videos of our amazing adventures in NEW ZEALAND and AUSTRALIA.
