Ready to put summer well behind me. The last several months have been asphalt on the tongue rough, and seemingly unending. When you’re in a grim situation and it seems like it’s always been that way and like it will ever be this way? That’s exhausting in a way that’s tough to describe. That said, […]
I didn’t come up with that phrase. Neko Case did. She’s a better writer than she’ll ever get credit for. At least I assume that. I don’t read record reviews or thinkpieces, though I’ve been known to read histories (oral and otherwise). I mean, she wrote the line “I wanted so badly not to be […]
I was gonna go with “Six Act Play” but the other one sounds so much cooler (and is a nice callout to one of my favorite DEFENDERS runs from when I was a kid.) So let’s talk a little about structure. It’s a thing that I’ve been thinking about, trying to figure out how to […]

Quick update to let you know that I’ve posted the best of the photos from my recent(ish) trip to Seattle to attend the Emerald City Comic Convention a couple months back. View the set here.

Your perfect soundtrack for thist post. Just loop it. I managed to trap myself yesterday, pretty bad. Not gonna bog you down with the personal details that you’re not really interested in, but last week was no damn good. This week not so much either. Let it all catch up to me, or I […]
One day I’ll start feeling like I’m not in a transitional state, right? Maybe that’s the deal. Always changing.

Been thinking things over since the […]
