Speech, Action, and Inaction

Speech, Action, and Inaction

What happened in Charlottesville this weekend was reprehensible and indefensible. It should be telling that a movement titled “Unite the Right” ended up only bringing together white supremacists of various creeds, including members of the alt-right (which, it should be pointed out, is a self-branded epithet chosen by members of the movement, unlike the imaginary […]

Finally, a Ramble

Finally, a Ramble

Ah! Another Sunday! And, so, another recap of the week so far! What’s that you say? I haven’t done any weekly recaps so far? Not a single act of reminiscence? Nary a reflection to be found? Well, pah! Pah, I say! No, not to you. To my sad self. Writer, I call myself, yet here I am failing […]

STICKERS FOR YOU

STICKERS FOR YOU

Hey all, sorry for the days away. It’s been a crazy week, personally and politically, and I have another crazy week coming up (hopefully only personally and less politically).

January 15th, 2017: An Art and A Ramble

January 15th, 2017: An Art and A Ramble

And here it is at last, 2017. In the future I’ll probably keep my art and rambles separate, but today–at least–I’ll let them lie side by side. I drew this piece while listening to some music I wrote with two of my best friends back when we were still in high school. This year will […]

On Responsibility and Boundaries

My […]

On Voting

On Voting

One of the first pictures I posted to Instagram (the third, I think), back when I joined the Instaverse back 2012, was of me making a goofy face with an “I VOTED” sticker stuck to my chest. Today, four years later, hairier and beardlier, I did it again (although this time the sticker reads “I VOTED By […]

On Ghosts (Halloween 2016)

On Ghosts (Halloween 2016)

This blog is shiny and new, and I’m already behind in my ramblings. Fortunately, my one day delay places this post on All Hallow’s Eve, that day whose night invites the veil between the living and the dead to lift and shimmer above a steady stream of spooks and sweets. So we’ll keep with the theme and ramble […]
