Everything That Feels So Good

I heard this song for the first time today (yeah, I'm late by about half a year, what of it?), and, like, it's perfect??? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AGPdXYG1msg Anyway, just had a religious experience this afternoon and felt understood on the deepest level imaginable. It's whatever. P.S. I don't know if I like that video or not (I'm… Continue reading Everything That Feels So Good

Barb and Star Go to Vista del Mar is FANTASTIC

I was talking with my very good friend Minigan recently, and he mentioned wanting to watch Barb and Star Go to Vista del Mar. This sparked within me a vague memory of a trailer with Kristen Wiig, bright colors, and the exhaustion of what I assumed would be every good joke in the movie. My… Continue reading Barb and Star Go to Vista del Mar is FANTASTIC

I’ve Got A New Idol

I'm embarrassed to say I have only just read my first book by Diana Wynne Jones. First of all, this: Diana Wynne Jones is a genius, a goddess, a fucking gift to this earth, none of us were worthy of her while she was here, and why her name hasn't been on a lot of… Continue reading I’ve Got A New Idol

That's 2753 complete novels out in… Continue reading Working For A…ttention?

What Are You Doing To Be Better?

We all want to improve at something. For me, well, it's a lot of things, but writing is high on the list. While I believe talent exists and comes naturally, and you're born with it or not, I also believe that's only a very small percentage of what makes up any skill. Everything else is… Continue reading What Are You Doing To Be Better?

If I’m Going To Die

Disclaimer: I'M FINE AND ALIVE SO DON'T COME AT ME. I had a little scare recently, and I don't want to act like it was bigger than it actually was, but with the way things were going in general in life, and with my anxiety at its highest (which is saying something since this happened… Continue reading If I’m Going To Die

Some People Will Take All Your Candy

We are selling our house, and I have a bowl of candy out specifically for potential buyers. It's obvious the candy is for people viewing the house because it's right at the entrance and it's basically the only thing in the whole damn place except a bottle of hand sanitizer and a candle that smells… Continue reading Some People Will Take All Your Candy
