This is the final installment of my four-part series on a concert festival I went to when I was twenty. For the first entry, along with a more detailed explanation of why I’m posting such a thing, go here. I Ran All The Way Home (Doo wah doo wah doo) The conversation the next morning consisted […]


This is part two (er, obviously) of a four-part series on a concert festival I went to when I was twenty. For the first entry, along with a more detailed explanation of why I’m posting such a thing, go here. Welcome to Sin City Las Vegas, NV By the time we make it to Vegas, the […]


I’ve been going through boxes of old papers (and thinking that someday maybe I’ll go through the Documents file on my computer), seeing what I can get rid of, when I came across this travel journal from 2003 written on looseleaf notepaper. Originally, I was going to just type it up and store it on […]


I originally wrote this to post on a running forum, but I’m reposting it here. Let us first cover the many ways in which I am a dumbass, which will hopefully lead to people understanding that I know that I am a dumbass and maybe not call me a dumbass in the comments too much. […]


The Border Wall

19Feb15

I wrote this in about 2007. It originally appeared in my zine Spandrel #2. It was before the unattended migrant children that came through in the summer of 2014, before the Tea Party halted all useful talk about our immigration system, before the cartels and the murders got really bad.

Water is the only substance that naturally exists is gas, liquid, and solid form outside of a laboratory setting. 2. The […]


I originally wrote this piece for a zine I put together in 2006 or so. These days, I actually really want a car, mostly because I’m job searching and in my city, the geographic considerations of how to get from Point A to Point B without a car and without having to take more than […]


Into the Wind

11May13

I hate riding my bike in the wind. Hate it. Riding into the wind will fill me with rage faster than just about anything else (I have been known to shout obscenities at the wind, though I gave that up when I realized it was only making me angrier and more frustrated, and not actually […]


I figure I’ll spend some time talking about what I wear on my bike. Since I spend so much time on my bike and preparing to be on my bike. From the bottom: On my feet I have Teva Links sneakers. They’re cycling shoes, but ones without cleats on the bottom, which is good as […]


Bike Ride

03Feb13

My bike ride to work is about twelve miles, each way. My usual shift is 7:30am to 11:30am, though I’ve been working late (with the boss’ permission, this time), so my ride to work is in the dark every morning, and my ride home in the early or mid afternoon. The ride there is in […]
