“less than three”

I feel like I have learned more about “love” in the past seven months than I have in my entire life prior. Primarily what I have learned is that love is complete bullshit. My mind works by hyper-focusing on certain topics, ideas, or questions and working through them gradually over several months. I will go […]

Jesus Moshes

On February 24th, President Barack Obama delivered an address to a joint session of congress. He talked about the oft-maligned economic stimulus package and offered up his usual bountiful helping of zealous optimism. As is the general custom, someone from the opposing party had to deliver some kind of rebuttal and alert to the public […]

Near Death, Vol 2

Okay. I’m very very sorry that I haven’t updated since last year. I really had been rather busy working on a zine (Litmus Test issue #1 coming out at the end of March). But it is rather unforgivable that I should neglect my blog to such a degree. So here is an update, another funny […]

Near Death, Vol 1.5

In a previous blog entry, I documented one of several almost-near-death experiences I’ve had. I feel like one of the best parts of that story however is that about 15 hours after I had someone stick a gun in my face, I was in the worst bike crash of my life. It sorta seemed like […]

My dad died of cancer when I was 17 years old. When I look back on the 23 year long road that brings me to sitting on the edge of my bed typing at this computer, I divide it up into clearly delineated chapters. The “My Dad is Dying of Cancer” chapter is one of […]

The Smallness of Language

So, it is 5:07am and I’m reflecting on my life and by association, writing and communication, as one is wont to do at hours like this. Other than the hour, the main thing which prompted these thoughts was the discovery of a year-old “Things to Do Before I Die” list in an old notebook in […]

Pescetarian Genocide

The biggest bummer about being vegan is this: you have to constantly be coddling other peoples’ guilt complexes about the fact that they’re not. I’d say most people are aware of the fact that veganism is the right thing to do, regardless of whether or not they’ll say it out loud. So as soon as […]

Sleep Deprivation

So I barely sleep anymore at all. I am beginning to feel serious long term effects of this insomnia and sleep deprivation. I started out in life – as so many people do – as someone who enjoys a good period of insomnia induced dementia and giddiness. Everyone knows that the best episode of the […]

Bloodbath!

Yesterday on NPR there was yet another economic story about the Wall Street crisis. Another bank going bankrupt, more white people out of work. I’m a fuckin NPR junkie so I stay up on my current events, and currently the only event that’s going on in the world is that a lot of financial institutions […]
