Art & Artist

I wasn’t as nervous about starting my new career as I thought I would be – at least, not at first. I suppose part of my casual approach to the situation was the daily consumption of anxiety medication combined with the fact I had decided to call a part-time job working the overnight desk at […]

When the Sun Opens

When the Sun Opens     I was told a lie growing up. It was one of those lies that was, at its very core, entirely harmless, especially when it was fed to the over-imaginative brain of a child. Of course, harm is hardly a dualistic thing. There’s a sliding scale involved, because the world is […]

The Space Device Premise and the Certain Promise of Our Inevitable Demise

Well… it’s been a while since I’ve visited this series. I know you’ve all be very eager to see how I wrap it up. The twists and turns we’ve been through…how it all ties together. We could go anywhere basically. A long time ago, approximately 2017, I had a vision for the end of this […]

You Can Hear The People Shouting

Have you ever heard a joke that was so funny you wish you could hear it a thousand times? A quip, a phrase, an anecdote, anything – not necessarily for the first time either – that simply appreciates in value the more and more you hear it? Do you wish that there was a way […]

The Tale of the Cracker Connoisseur

Once upon a time there was a cracker connoisseur who was named William Henry York or something like that. He had eaten crackers all his life, and soon came to realize there was more to crackers than being simply a salty snack. Lately, he was in search of a more sophisticated cracker. He had always […]

Control

efore you sits an interesting man. A man with a presence strong enough to instill a slight sensation of indigestion. Your finger hovers above a bright red button as you study the uncontrollable emotions he conjures. Your trance is broken when the man begins to speak. “You gonna pull the trigger, kid?” Staring down at […]

NHL TRADE DEADLINE ROUNDUP

Hey folks, welcome to Coaches Corner. First thing I’m going to address here is this – I understand that the Hockey Night In Canada segment starring Don Cherry and Ron McLean is spelled “Coach’s Corner.” I’m here to clear up any confusion about this. One, this is a corner of multiple coaches. Two, copywrite law […]

On Leaving: Austin & The Millennial Job Hunt

There I was. After an obtuse 9 and a half hours, I had arrived in the city I’d eventually come to call home. Belongings had become too cumbersome. Countless video games lined all the walls of my previous loft apartment — a 1300 square foot piece of paradise. I’d spent the last 6 months living with my ex-girlfriend.

The Outer Rim (an Introduction)

It’s half past 11 and you’re driving your 2003 Toyota Corolla™ down a shrouded residential street. Your path is painted only by the artificial light fighting for freedom within streetlights caked with moss and dirt. You turn on the radio to find nothin but 70’s love songs peddled by middle aged jockeys all currently experiencing their scheduled crises. You elect to drive in silence. You’re almost there anyway.

Listen I Don’t Have Much Time You Need To Understand

There comes a point in every human’s life where everything comes to an end. It’s like the climax of a good movie but it’s really lame and doesnn’t have good setup. You probably havenn’t had that happen to you because you’re not cool enough for it. You might also be too cool for it, but […]

I’m Not Going To Kill Bart Simpson, But If I Was, Here Is How I Would Do It

e have a problem. It’s nearly 2017, and Bart Simpson is still alive. “Wait, what are you talking about?” You’re probably saying right now, out loud at your computer screen like some kind of idiot who thinks I can hear you. “Bart Simpson is a cool guy. Why is it bad that he’s alive?” Or, […]
