Just two lines. Short, simple. But they mean so much. Confession time: One of my recurring faults as a younger man was my tendency to tie up far too much of my self-worth (as in all of it) in how the girls/women I liked treated me. If a girl I was dating acted into me, […]Read more "Third Eye Blind’s “Motorcycle Drive By”"

I’m hard-pressed to name […]Read more "Brian Keene on Yours Truly: “The Best of His Generation”"
Me (eyes shuttering open at 3:54 in the morning): What? Voices (sitting on the edge of the bed like Kramer in one of my favorite Seinfeld episodes, the one where Kramer decides to change his sleep schedule to become more productive): Hey.

Hello reading audience and devoted fans. I have hijacked JJ’s blog because I don’t think he is that interesting. I thought perhaps we should zhuzh things up for readers because there is only so much you can say about your own work.
