It’s Like a Movie, Seen from Inside the Hero’s Mind

It’s like a movie, seen from inside the hero’s mind. In this case, he’s Odysseus of Ithaca, a father and fighter, far from home. The Greek poet Homer’s great metaphor for how soldiers come home after war is what The Odyssey is all about.

Almost making it home, but then being swept away again by forces beyond your control. The lure of drugs to calm the mind. And being forced to fight an inhuman monster because you made a bad decision.

This coming Sunday, Jan. 16 at 7 pm EST, Master Talesman Odds Bodkin will appear on YouTube Live to tell this timeless story. He’ll accompany himself throughout on thunderous 12-string guitar.

A CUSTOMER REVIEWS ODDS BODKIN’S EPIC DRIVE

A CUSTOMER REVIEWS ODDS BODKIN’S EPIC DRIVE

“We are very happy to receive our epic drive stories. Our kids were raised on these stories since they were tots. Our family custom during the winter is to gather around a warm wood stove with a hot cup of latte and share time together listening to books and doing artful projects. When I asked the family what they would like to listen to this season, my husband and kids (now teenagers) asked if we could listen to Odds Bodkin stories again. So, thanks for all the years of good story telling! We will enjoy hearing it all again.”

Warm Thanks,

Free Odds Bodkin Story: A T-Rex Adventure for Kids

ENTER A WORLD OF LOVABLE DINOSAURS

Little Proto the Protoceratops knows his baby sister is on the way, and he feels left out by his parents. All they talk about is when she’ll hatch. And even though there’s a gigantic but convalescent T-Rex in the Sea Forest nearby, Proto isn’t worried about King Geoffrey the One Eye. After all, he’s helped to get the starving Rex some food. No, Proto is just feeling left out. Little does he know he’s about to be captured by a Pteranodon and flown far, far away.

Enjoy the opening 20 minutes of Odds Bodkin’s original musical story for kids, Little Proto’s T-Rex Adventure. 12-string guitar music, engaging character voices, vocal effects and clever dialog bring this dinosaur adventure to life.  The entire feature length tale is 70 minutes. It’s the second episode of The Little Proto Trilogy.

Winner of the Parents’ Choice Gold Award.

Customer Review: “This is one of the best (if not the best purchases/investments) I’ve made all year. I’m excited to share it with my family. At $99, this is really quite a steal…given The Odyssey alone is worth as much. (Not to mention, other such amazing series in this collection–Hercules, The Hidden Grail, etc…) –Norman Chiang

Grab Your Tickets for Odds Bodkin’s HEARTPOUNDERS Show on Zoom this Friday Night!

Grab your tickets for Odds Bodkin’s HEARTPOUNDERS show on Zoom this Friday night and enjoy some adult storytelling! It’s live. It’s musical. It’s terrifying.

What are the stories?

THE STORM BREEDER

If you curse Nature, it curses you in return. Peter Rugg of Boston learns this immutable fact when he offends Nature. Now thunderstorms chase him. Is he alive or dead? And why has no one seen his ravaged face in fifty years, even though people see him often on old New England’s stormy roads? Only innocent Jonathan Dunwell, after chasing the Storm Breeder, sees the horrific face. Forever, his soul and body are scarred.

THE DEMON HEADS

After escaping a terrible massacre, a samurai buries his weapons forever and becomes an itinerant priest. His prayers are his only power. Yet in a battle with forest demons, he needs his old warrior skills. Whether he survives or not, after you hear the end of the story, is a matter of opinion.

THE GIRL WHO DANCED WITH THE DEVIL

Pierre sees the hooves of the stranger’s horse sunk into the melted snow, steam pouring up its shanks. Who is this handsome dancer who owns this horse and who is waltzing in the barn with Rose, Pierre’s fiancée? Even now, she’s fighting for her life as the stranger’s claws, hidden in his gloves, tighten around her.

Master Storyteller, Author and Musician Odds Bodkin invites you to enjoy these three supernatural tales with him as he tells them live with character voices, realistic vocal effects and full scores on 12-string guitars and Celtic harp.
