Vasectomy

Less than a week ago I got a vasectomy and based on the number of questions I’ve had to answer about it, I figured that I should write a blog explaining a little bit of my reasoning behind it and how the procedure took place. The first and more important reason is that regardless of […]

Litmus Test Issue One

My straight edge zine is finally finished. It has been over four months (off and on) of working on it, and I’m super excited about it. It is undoubtedly the largest creative project I’ve followed through with in its entirety. I have written one full length novel, a novella, dozens of short stories, a play […]

Insanity

It is well known to all of my closer friends, and to the luckier of my acquaintances that I am completely out of my mind. The problem with insanity though, is that it is only the more contrived, cartoonish mental illness symptoms like hallucinations (both auditory and visual) that warrant any kind of humourous consideration. […]

Bullshit

The concept of lying is an interesting one to me. I have always been honest to a fault. Lying has always seemed much too complicated and I’ve never had enough of a sense of ambition or embarrassment to need to lie about things. I’ve done very few things in my life that I’ve felt that […]

Near Death, Vol 3

I feel like near death experiences are a good thing to fall back on when I lack an interesting story to tell. I have in past entries already covered the time I was nearly killed by another person, the time I was nearly killed by an animal, along with a smattering of entries where I […]

The White Cloaks

So the weirdest thing that ever happened to me was that I was once in a cult. Yeah, seriously. It’s a long story that’s got a long back story attached to it. I’ll try to condense it as much as possible. When I was in middle school and into my early years of high school […]

“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 […]
