"City: [no e]Scape, is perfect! (on the CrossRoads site) Good poetry is an antidote to the poison of bad poetry, bad job, bad life! What do I know? Other than I dig your writing... thanks for the poetry." -– Jacob Evans
"There is failure, hurt, confusion – a constant restlessness; yet all these very human scars are slowly healed by a daily persistent observation and consideration (active thinking); and by tomorrow’s possibility. That’s good poetry, and I recommend The San Pedro Poems. -- Tim Scannell
"...that was worth a thousand evenings of failed brilliance. It was spontaneous combustible genius united!" -- Lisa Nemzo (referring to the Tag-Team poetry of Ben Russak & Raindog at Kulak’s Woodshed in July 01)
“This [On/Off the Beaten Path]...poem of character, mindscape and landscape is worthy of every drop of gas consumed. Recommended!” – Tim Scannell (The Bent, Fall 2000)
“The poetry (Paper Heart 3) offers Raindog’s unique take on romance and love. Without sounding sappy or jaded, he combs the depths of love and affection, detailing not only the absolute elation it can bring, but also the dysfunctional characteristics that tend to seep through the cracks.” -- Holly Matter
“The Manx Tales by RD Armstrong... 15 semi-autobiographical tales of urban alienation & isolation – very internal, very intense. Plenty of ironic humor, & wry sex. This Raindog is one cool cat.” -- John Berbrich (From The Marrow, #5, March 2000)
“...bought the jazz anthology [Eyes Like Mingus]... I was blown away. Particularly by “Zoot”. I find myself going back to read that over and over again.” -- Mike Grover
“[A Journey Up The Coast]... is reminiscent of the best road poem of all – Song of Myself.” -- Todd Moore
“ I enjoyed reading El Pagano. …still producing tough, sharp and emotional material. Good job man.” -- Alex Thiltges.
