Thus revealed, the creature buried its nose in the tire-tilled soil...

Feelin’ fine.
Category: Serious

Admittedly, I'm feeling better tonight than I have been in the past few days. Which isn't to say that I'm bubbling over with mirth (I doubt I'd be that joyous even if I sold a story -- still waiting on those rejections from Playboy and Ideomancer...), but I'm not as down as I was this time last night.

Scary-Crayon updated! Etc.
Category: SC Updates

Happy March! Two new pieces -- A Crayon Haiku #6 and a cover review of the December 2003 issue of "O, The Oprah Magazine". Hopefully it's the last time you'll see Oprah on the site. I wish it were the last time any of us saw her ever, but that's not bloody likely at all. (more...)

Much clarification. :)
Category: Serious

In hindsight, I'm thinking I should've called that last post "mein kampf". 🙂

Wendy writes some of her thoughts on "race" in response to my previous post (click there or scroll down, as necessary), so read those first if you haven't already. While hopefully this post would be an interesting and illuminating solo read, I write it with intent to clarify the views I put forward in last night's offering. It seems that I've already been misunderstood in one instance, so I'm worried that the anecdotal elements confound my point (which is often the case with arguments). Hence the clarificatory entry.

The “mother” of posts.
Category: Serious

Well, this one's a pretty long and disjointed piece -- try to follow along. Took me a while to write, and you're missing out on a handful of anecdotes that I wrote down and excised from the version below. The essay's an odd mix of anecdotes and commentary, so hopefully the pound breaks will be helpful. Suffice it to say that if you understand even half of this essay -- particularly the latter half -- you'll know me better than my own mother ever will.

Here we go. (more...)

Filler. (With a new drawing!)
Category: Art … Dreams

This has been a pretty craptacular week for me, so I'm thinking tomorrow night I'll go ahead and give the childhood post a go. There are so many things that have changed for the worse since my childhood, but I'm going to limit it to one topic of discussion -- should keep it from being the novel that I'm erratically working on (which is mostly based on my life). Besides, it's the topic I hate, and I'd hate to drag it out (though I may very well do just that, cursing under my breath the whole way through). There's a reason I can't really get my fingers into this novel, folks -- because every time I really start thinking about it I get so disgusted that I have to eat a bunch of candy and go to sleep in the hopes that I'll have some really neat dreams to make me feel better. Argh. (more...)
