Ahh, the wonders of Friday. Survive today and, more than likely, you’ll have two free days of mirth and merriment that just don’t last long enough. OK, enough of the palaver, down to the tunes.  I thought I’d take things up a level this week and leave the selection of the Friday playlist to the hands of fate, or, at …

We make holes in links

My general email address has been public for well over a dozen years, so I get a lot of spam. I’ve got some pretty good filters nowadays, but the amount that piles up in that trash folder can be pretty staggering. This really didn’t bother me until I started writing this blog. I am amazed at how many spam blog …

The creative process

justin monkey, Ravings Leave a Comment

For the most part, I consider myself wildly creative but horribly untalented. Over the past couple of years I’ve managed to cludge together some (what I consider) pretty decent creative output, but I always seem to struggle with it.

In fact, I can’t even bring myself to watch the crazy Hoarders show on A&E because it depresses me that packrat behavior is the new disease …

So I’ve been a little lax this week.  Truth be told, it’s been the week from hell and I really didn’t feel like venting via blog. It’s much easier to punch people in the face than spout invective about them online. That’s the power of action, people.  Remember that. So, here we are with the second installment of a weekly …

What? No cheat codes? WTF?!?!?!

Generally I’m a pretty stressed out person. I’m not sure how that is different than anyone else living in modernity, but at least I’m aware that I’m usually pretty jacked up on a day-to-day basis. What’s worse is that I understand that the amounts of stress I consider myself under is not all that healthy; and that stresses me out …
