    I’m waiting, willing, the clarity is chilling

    Of all the tasks involved with being a Propaganda Creationist (copywriter) writing catalog copy is the absolute worst. It’s the worst of the worst. Basically you get 25, 50, and 100 words to sell your product. They use these words whenever they put your product in a catalog. As anyone…

    in the bat cave

    the fluorescent lights above my cell here at Hell, Inc. have all burnt out. it’s a little like working in a bat cave. i get some light from the nearby windows, but it’s decidedly dark. i can’t decide if i love or hate it. i should probably be cooking up…

  • easy come easy go

    i made it my new year’s resolution to go out and see author’s read. i don’t think i’ve been to a reading since sweet rob read at the loft like a year ago. so, i made plans to go out tonight and see Pete Hautmann discuss his book Godless. but…

  • and so it goes

    yeah, well today totally did not go how i planned it at all. not in the least. there are times in your life where you can convince yourself so wholly of something that you never even plan for the opposite to happen. today the opposite happened and it took me…
