Matthew Polly is hella old

Today is the birthday of our favorite / only auteur-in-residence, Matthew Polly! I know we’d all like to punch him in the face for making us wait so long for his MMA book ‘Tapped Out’, so here’s the next best thing: Matt getting punched in the face over and over for the cover of said book. Happy birthday Matt! May your year be full of awesome, and may your book sell more copies than Tito’s.

    Damn that’s one hell of a photoshoot.

  • agentsmith says:

    Kinda like the cover for “Vulgar Display of Power”.

    Polly looks stoned. Sativas are better for that kinda chit Mateo.

    I have a feeling frick will spew a douchie comment bout the shoot…

  • CAP says:

    Interesting. I bet they had to sign a waiver for that! “We just want to see what it looks like! Stand here.” I’m sure they aren’t hitting them full power and there looks to be plenty of brain rattling going on.

    Also worth a watch is the Water Balloon to the Face!

  • DJ ThunderElbows says:

    Awesome shoot Matthew!  I’m looking forward to your new book.

    For those that like that slo-mo

  • G Funk says:

    ^Dope seeing the rifle rounds, frangible, birdshot, FMJ pistol & hollow points doing their thang.

  • Omomatta says:

    Great call Schmitty and even greater album.

    Maybe I’ll check it out when I’m at home and can actually view the damn thing.

    Looking forward to reading the new book Matt. Christ, I think my oldest kid was a fetus when I read your last one.

  • frickshun says:

    I wonder if my library has Polly’s book? I’m not too keen on book-learnin, especially when it costs money.

  • CAP says:

    ^Money can’t buy smarts. At least that’s the excuse I use!

  • matthewpolly says:

    Shit, I go away for my birthday only to come back and discover this lovely present from dearest Ryan and the Jackal gang. Ah [sniff], thanks guys! You all are the best!

    PS Frickshun, pony up the money, you cheap bastard. Libraries are intellectual property theft.

    PSS The book is coming honest. I swear. Truthfully. October.

    PSSS That’s my editor punching me in the face. This is how you get to be a “big time” author: masochism.

  • iamphoenix says:

    i’m gonna read your book while shit comes out my ass.

  • matthewpolly says:

    perfect for bathroom reading.

  • frickshun says:

    Now that you’ve guilted me into it……I suppose I’ll hafta buy it. Maybe I’ll send my wife a link & call it a “Father’s Day gift”. Then me & Polly will be besties for life!! FOR LIFE!!!!!

  • matthewpolly says:

    Mistah, I love you long time. Lest you think I’m driving you to the poor house, you can get a copy off amazon for $6.40 (the cheap bastards), which is about what it’d cost in gas to drive to and from the library.

    Which medium gives you the most recompense for your tortured writer lifestyle: physical book or e-book?
