New fiction

In looking back over the nine months this blog was active, I am literally mortified by the level and depth of pain and rage that came out of me. Nonetheless, that was the whole point. As in the Cassady quote in the header, to truly and honestly put down all of the things I was … Continue reading

The winter of our discontent

A frosty morning, after what looked to be an about-to-be-becoming snowy weekend that never resolved to anything more than wet and cold. I am presumably still on a Short List. The job was reporting for the Northwest Guardian, a newspaper distributed on and around Joint Base Lewis-McChord here in Washington, dedicated to military news. This, … Continue reading

Another brick in the wall

Banging my head against technical difficulties at DaveTV today. No classes this week for Thanksgiving break, so I am getting in some time swapping out some things that weren’t working. Problem is, I am swapping used parts from another site, so I don’t know if they work or not, and mostly, apparently, they don’t. I … Continue reading

There is, to paraphrase Douglas Adams, a long dark tea-time of the soul that comes over me every so often; a feeling that it’s all futile, I am tired of beating my head on walls that refuse to yield, and sneaking around them using strategy isn’t working so well either. Luckily I am broke most … Continue reading

Today’s winner: Republican presidential hopeful and pizza magnate Herman Cain. Herman has expressed public pride in being sort of a dumbass, starting with his ridiculous “9-9-9” tax … Continue reading

Ethel, you got some ‘splainin’ to do

It’s time for the Stupidest People In The World Awards, and once again, for those of you wondering, yes, the bad English and implicit irony therein is intentional. Today’s winners: Anyone who still takes United Press International or the Washington Times seriously. UPI was once a major news organization along the lines of the Associated … Continue reading

The return of the stupid

Back when I was in radio, I used to do a feature every day called “The Stupidest People (or Person) in the World Award.” I’d find some funny or ridiculous story in the Associated Press’s “kicker” file, which is a daily compendium of absurd but true stories, and the person or people involved would get … Continue reading


“I like too many things and get all confused and hung-up running from falling star to another till I drop. This is the night, what it does to you. I had nothing to offer anybody except my own confusion” –Jack Kerouac A weekend of mostly catching up on sleep. There was a Halloween party booked … Continue reading
