By Any Means Necessary

I wanted to take a moment to recognize that today is the 45th anniversary of the death of Malcolm X. Malcolm X is one of my personal heroes and represents the power of spirit necessary to be a revolutionary leader. Throughout his life Malcolm saw every side of the American experience, from poverty and crime, […]

Loser

“I’m not a very well-liked person” might be the biggest understatement I’ve ever written in this blog. If you’re reading my blog that means you have at least some exposure to what people call my “internet personality” which differs from my real life personality in that it is more obnoxious. I’m a guy that most […]

Til Death Do Us Part

Anyone who has known me for a while knows that at one point I was engaged. My ex and I had gotten her sized for a ring at a jewelry store and I was a couple of months away from buying the ring and helping to announce the whole plan to her family when things […]

Burn

I’ve always been fascinated by fire. When I was a kid, my two favourite mischievous activities were to throw eggs at passing cars and setting things on fire. My friends and I were always interested in finding newer and cooler ways of igniting objects. Rubbing alcohol, nail polish remover, hair spray, gasoline, air freshener, lighter […]

State Murder

I am told constantly that because I am vegan and pro-animal rights, and because I am an Environmentalist and support the concerns of preserving ecosystems over human expansion, and because I am sterilized and therefore unable to reproduce, and because I support a woman’s right to have an abortion, that I tend to come across […]

America Smokes

The majority of people who read my blog live in Virginia. If you’ve had the dire misfortune of being born anywhere but our fine commonwealth then there’s a 50/50 chance that you are from a state that has already passed an indoor smoking ban and an even better chance that you’re from a state that […]

Past Year’s Accountability 2009

The tradition of making resolutions for the new year every 31st of December is a tradition I fully support. I think it is a much brighter, more productive tradition than the tradition of high school kids getting trashed out of their mind and speeding through red lights in the middle of the night and killing […]

They Schools

I received a letter on my birthday of this year from a friend who wrote to tell me that not only was our friendship over, it had never actually existed at all. This blog entry isn’t really about her, or about the letter, but it is about one very small very interesting part of the […]

Skin

I don’t feel like I have a lot of tattoos. The microcosm of Hardcore in which I spend most of my life is so filled with heavily tattooed people that I never really feel like a very tattooed guy. But I do occasionally spend time in circles of – it’s hard to find a nice […]

Snowed In

As I write this entry I am surrounded by eighteen inches of snow and if you think that sounds awesome – fuck you. I hate snow. When I see snow I want to burn the world down, I want to spill oil into the ocean so I can light it on fire and grill baby […]
