The Monster

October 15th, 2021 I wrote this weeks ago, but this has been a difficult one to let go into the world. As of tomorrow, the 16th, my mom has been gone for one whole orbit around the sun. In that year, I’ve told a lot of stories about her and how I feel some daysContinue reading “The Monster”

Just a Poor Boy

October 11th, 2021 Galileo was more than a line in a Queen song. In the early 1600’s, he and his contemporary Giordano Bruno were the kind of history that certain people would prefer we not remember. You see, for a long time, it was common knowledge that the entire universe revolved around Earth. That’s whatContinue reading “Just a Poor Boy”

Eat Us

July 26th, 2021 The reason that modern youth seem so supremely defiant now is because at no previous time in human history has it been so apparent that adults have no idea what the hell they are doing. Adults used to be able to hide behind the fact that we didn’t know what stupid thoughtsContinue reading “Eat Us”

The Bad Guy . . . Duh.

June 29th, 2021 Hi! I’m a white person, and this is a post about white fragility. If you’re a white person, I encourage you to come along. I’m not going to just throw things at you that you’ve heard before; no, as is my way, I’m going to share a deeply personal story about myselfContinue reading “The Bad Guy . . . Duh.”

Legos on a Loop

April 15th, 2021 This is going to be a loaded post. I give you this warning ahead of time as a courtesy: if you’re having a nice day, just scrolling along, having funsies, I encourage you to continue on ahead unimpeded. Have a good one. If you’re still here: let’s do this. There is aContinue reading “Legos on a Loop”

The Enemy of my Enemy is Me

February 1st, 2021 “To fight the empire is to be infected by its derangement . . . Whoever defeats part of the empire becomes the empire; it proliferates like a virus . . . Thereby it becomes its enemies.” – Phillip K. Dick I didn’t know how it phrase it as eloquently as Dick, butContinue reading “The Enemy of my Enemy is Me”

Please Help Save The World With Me

January 28th, 2021 Want to hear my conspiracy? I just finished doing a read-through of The Invisibles, Grant Morrison’s hugely-influential, extremely 90’s comic book series about a secret war between those who fight for freedom and those who fight for control; for truth and for lies; for subjective good and for subjective evil. It operatesContinue reading “Please Help Save The World With Me”

Told Ya

January 14th, 2021 Imagine that you’re at a restaurant with your family. A few tables down sits a man, and he is drunk. Initially, he’s just rambling incoherently and maybe using language and slurs that make your family uncomfortable. Eventually, though, he starts to say undeniably threatening remarks. You alert some of the staff andContinue reading “Told Ya”

Forgive & I’ll Live

January 10th, 2021 Somebody on the internet set me off tonight. Someone I love said, “You’re a writer. You should be better than the words that you’re saying right now.” She’s right. I can not, no matter how hard I try, ever understand people who live to set fire to the world, and who intentionallyContinue reading “Forgive & I’ll Live”

Land of the

January 6th, 2021 I’ve been real good at staying apolitical as of late, but I feel like I’ve lost a little of my punk rock attitude and we’ve all been getting along too well. So let’s get to it, friends! What is happening in Washington right now is just about as anti-American and anti-democratic (asContinue reading “Land of the”
