I finished “On Earth We Are Briefly Gorgeous”. It was really good. Even better than it seemed like it was when I did my little review of it. I’ve been buying Beyond sausages. I eat meat, but I hate agribusiness farms, so I try to avoid eating anything that I didn’t kill myself or was … More The Possibility that Life is Amazing.
I wrote my brother a postcard. It was a Futurama postcard, came in a dvd we bought of one of the movies they made. “Bender’s Big Score” maybe. On the postcard I wrote, “Futurama is more important than poetry. So what? Wanna fight about it? That’s a Family Guy reference. This moment in cultural appreciation … More “On Earth We’re Briefly Gorgeous” by Ocean Vuong
I own this website strictly for the fact that I like to write stuff, and I enjoy having a place to put the random stuff I feel like writing that doesn’t have blogger or wordpress in the web address.

Two bikes were stolen from my house the other day. I just left them in the front yard, because I am an idiot. All the thieves had to do was roll them out of my life and into theirs. One of the bikes was really nice. I don’t know how nice because I inherited it … More Easy Come, Easy Go

How could this have happened? I did everything I could to … More All My Mistakes (Have Turned Out Great)
That guy who got significantly less votes than his opponent, but then is still president because the several people in North Dakota get as many votes as the entire West Coast, made a speech yesterday. I felt it elicited a response. Regarding the World War Two veterans and the astronauts who went to the moon, … More The COBC Response to the State of the Union
Here’s the deal, I’m not sure all the words and stuff we’re building prove any kind of meaningful intelligence. As far as the words go, most animals have a way to communicate the desire for coitus, impending danger, and food. It might just be the case that they don’t have any inclination to talk about … More Humans aren’t very smart.
Yesterday was Christmas, in case you missed that. I think the idea that there is a war on Christmas is funny, it is literally everywhere. If you’re a Christian, the problem isn’t people abandoning Christmas, it’s too many people embracing it, enjoying the traditions without any regard to the religious aspect. Christmas is turning Halloween, … More What’s Up With There Not Being Any Valentine’s Day Songs?
You might be interested to know I time travelled here from the year 1984. It was easy, I did it one year at a time. I know what it would take to get back too, but I don’t know how to do it. All it would take is reversing all of the physical processes long … More Telechronology
