I’ll Fix My Head Before I’m Dead (Boneyard Express, 2014)

A man’s life cannot be justly written or adequately shared, not because language falls short – rather, because a man’s life is a subjective experience. Two identical situations can cause excitement in one or fear in another based on the accumulation of their influences.

How can a mere book sufficiently express the emotions and evolution of a human? At best, polaroids and captions afford us flickering glimpses into a heart and soul. In I’ll Fix My Head Before I’m Dead, Dean Roberts (Season 1, Episode 147) takes the reader by the hand and guides him through the nostalgic meandering of Memory Lane. With wistful overtones and a stream of consciousness uninterrupted by punctuation, you cannot help but fall into rhythm with Roberts’ thoughts as he reflects on a life lived to its fullest.

Roberts offers an open invitation to relive some of his most vulnerable moments and never fails to cap each story with a moral he gleaned from it. He imparts decades of wisdom, using simple sentences to convey simple but elusive truths.

I’ll Fix My Head Before I’m Dead weaves together uncensored journal entries from times and places long ago and far away, with a narrative of hard-earned maturity. Roberts uses brushstrokes of humor and frames his experiences with lilting introspection.
