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

Scary-Crayon updated! And a word about cops.
Category: SC Updates … Serious

New Scary-Crayon article: A McDonald's Cup Review. Not a fancy plastic promo cup either -- just your regular run-of-the-mill wax paper cup you get with any ol' McDonald's beverage purchase. Enjoy!

New blog link added: Mac Swift's Vessel of Honour. And both Mac and Dawn offer up posts about Jewishness -- Dawn, in "Who's a Jew?", discusses what it means to be a Jew (with reference to the latter part of my recent post "Feelin' Fine"), and Mac in "Love that Jew!" So if you're interested, give those a read. I still think that Joey -- who only began playing up his supposed "Jewishness" in the last year or so, from what I've seen anyway -- is full of crap, but in all honesty I thought that anyway. This is a guy who took a train to Canada back in 1999 to pick up a prostitute (since he wants to be a politician and therefore didn't want to break any American laws -- how Clintonesque) so that he could say he "fucked in two millennia" and this past Christmas loudly sang, "Ann Coulter is a racist bitch!" upon sighting the woman in the flesh on Christmas Day, for crying out loud. Why is it that I'm acquainted with so many awful people? I dunno. (more...)

Links and Blood Enemies.
Category: Serious

Couple of new links added. I changed the Tamara and Allie link from "T and A" (which is apparently their "official" blog name) to the longer version because I didn't like the way the short link looked on the sidebar. Hope nobody minds. I also added Retroactive Continuity and ireneQ to the list. Woo. (more...)

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. (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. (more...)

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...)
