Herb Schmidt

Herbert T. Schmidt, Jr., is co-founder of The Star-Spangled Banner of Your Mind, a surrealist tragic-comedy urban ensemble with a predilection to skewering the media in its refracted orthicon heart. He has published poetry and prose and pop-culture essays in tabloids and periodicals everywhere, including Coast Magazine and the LA Free Press. As a utility infielder with a lifetime .255 batting average, he’s always been a sucker for a well-thrown curve ball up around the ears or a blonde with murder on her mind.
