Change, or Die

June 16th, 2021 Working in a bar as long as I have, I’ve heard a lot of stories. Most of them about other human beings. Most of them some kind of drama or hardship or horror. Quite a few of them about people who didn’t make it. Some of the people just had bad luck,Continue reading “Change, or Die”

Moving Days

June 7th, 2021 Moving on can be different things. I regularly play a game in my head where I try to imagine what my life would be like if my old job never ceased to exist. Lately, when I play that game, I get genuinely sad when I think of all the people I wouldn’tContinue reading “Moving Days”

The Truth is Way Out There

May 20th, 2021 I believe in something weird. I believe that the universe purposefully created the particles and the atoms that eventually led to human beings because it wanted someone here who could see, hear, feel and appreciate the universe itself. I believe this because I think the universe is inherently lonely. I don’t thinkContinue reading “The Truth is Way Out There”

You do you.

April 26th, 2021 I finished reading Neil Gaiman’s View From The Cheap Seats last night, which is a collection of his essays, reviews, introductions and conclusions. I love Neil Gaiman, because I have eyes and a brain and a heart. There are a lot of things in there that will, consciously or sub-, inspire myContinue reading “You do you.”

New Interview Alert! Basement Boy Banter Podcast

April 21, 2021 Five years after I was the first guest co-host on Basement Boy Banter, both the show and I return, this time to promote my new collection of essays, Time is a Solid State. Like my book, our conversation covers a wide lens of topics, from the multiversally nerdy to the intimately personal.Continue reading “New Interview Alert! Basement Boy Banter Podcast”

The Ghost Kingdom

April 14th, 2021 We can build an infinite amount of worlds in our head in which to live. Sometimes we create them as a means to escape, sometimes when we create them we’re returned a massive amount of guilt, and oftentimes these worlds do both. This is going to be a deeply personal essay aboutContinue reading “The Ghost Kingdom”

Where No Ordinary Rabbit Would Dare

April 11th, 2021 This was a really fun one to do. Sometimes it just feels good to make something, as opposed to constantly be working towards a goal or multiple goals or all of the goals. I spent my day off watching all 13 episodes of Bucky O’Hare, a cartoon that came out when IContinue reading “Where No Ordinary Rabbit Would Dare”

Famous Last Blurbs

March 15th, 2021 This is going to be the last substantial post I make for a while, because this is the last post that’s going to make it in the book. It’s weird because some of you will read these words on a screen and some of you will read them on paper, and thisContinue reading “Famous Last Blurbs”

Found in Space

March 9th, 2021 More and more lately, I find myself in space. I’ve been feeling the everyday plaque of stress and anxiety building up faster and more frequently; I know it’s due to a complex constellation of reasons. Not that understanding it helps. To find myself out, I have to place myself outside. Way outside.Continue reading “Found in Space”
