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”

Wake me up before you go go

July 23rd, 2021 I think that heaven can be a dangerous idea. Before I take you there, though, let’s talk about the benefits of believing in an everlasting life. At its base, the belief that life never truly ends helps appease what William James calls the “worm at the core of all our usual springsContinue reading “Wake me up before you go go”

I Want To Push You Around

July 19th, 2021 In just about 24 hours, Push comes to shove and will be released into the wild. I wanted to talk about my 7th book a little (and thank every single person who has been here since my 1st, too). I’ll see you soon at Issues Needed on July 21st starting at 5Continue reading “I Want To Push You Around”

Three Dots…

July 9th, 2021 It’s a complicated thing, being a being who has complicated thoughts. It means that you’re as much of the things you don’t say as the things you do. Regularly, when I go to check on something I’ve posted, I’ll see those three tiny dots dancing in the comment section. It means someoneContinue reading “Three Dots…”

Everywhere You Look

July 20th, 2021 It’s been brought to my attention by multiple people over the last few weeks that I have been talking about Full House a lot, and watching it with curious regularity. I wouldn’t be me if I didn’t begin questioning why I’ve been doing this. With the 90’s being the latest era toContinue reading “Everywhere You Look”

Manufactured Bottled Lightning

June 10th, 2021 I mean this in the creepiest possible way but you don’t know what your brain is thinking most of the time. This post is about your subconscious mind and how it relates to inspiration, supposed intervention, and mental blocks, ebbs and flows. I forgot what I was going to say. I’ve doneContinue reading “Manufactured Bottled Lightning”

Alarm For The Cause Of Being Brave

June 4th, 2021 I’m almost done writing a book (I may have mentioned it earlier) and it has taken me to some of the darkest places writing has ever taken me (I also mentioned that in passing). One of its lessons is about the power of being honest with yourself (and the power dishonesty canContinue reading “Alarm For The Cause Of Being Brave”

Announcement: Push

May 29th, 2021 Ope. I guess I had another story to tell. We’ll obviously talk a whole lot more about this, the sequel to Flip, as it gets closer. But I have to say: Push is dark. Maybe the darkest thing I’ve ever written. And yet, if I do my job right, my goal isContinue reading “Announcement: Push”

Truth Serum

May 12th, 2021 There was a phrase I used to hear all the time when I was drinking that would put fear in me more than anything else anyone could say. “The truth comes out when you’re drunk.” This was repeated so often that it was no longer anecdotal for me, an absolute, objective truthContinue reading “Truth Serum”

Life After Life

April 24th, 2021 I finished watching After Life tonight (which I had talked a little about yesterday). It’s a simple joy when, instead of learning a new lesson from something, it just reaffirms a belief you’ve known all along. One of the things that Tony learns is that sharing the life of someone he hadContinue reading “Life After Life”
