I’m really bored, so I’m posting a picture of myself, in my current state, with my shitty webcam. Deal with it.

Going to start posting things here again

It’s been about a year now. I feel like I should be creating something. So, yeah. Gonna do that.


It’ll never really be old news just how small and insignificant we are compared to the giant universe, but I love graphics like this. But I just love space, I love that there’s just so much out there. I want to see it ALL.

People, you’re better than this. Please don’t download this printable .PDF and take it to Rick Santorum’s 5:30 p.m. rally at Hope College. Or to his 7:30 p.m. dinner at the Amway Grand Plaza Hotel in Grand Rapids. That’s not who you are. Is it?

It is in fact a crime for an American to be poor, even though America is a nation of poor. Every other nation has folk traditions of men who were poor but extremely wise and virtuous, and therefore far more estimable than anyone with power and gold. No such tales are told by the American poor. They mock themselves and glorify their betters. The meanest eating and drinking establishment, owned by a man who is himself poor, is very likely to have a sign on its wall asking this cruel question: “If you’re so smart, why ain’t you rich?” There will also be an American flag no larger than a child’s hand- glued to a lollipop stick and flying from the cash register.

Drive I

This is the beginning of a series of posts that will eventually make a story, perhaps a novel. I haven’t decided on a name for the whole thing as of yet. Anyway, enjoy.

——————————————————————————-

The sun was falling. The wind was dying down. Winter was on the sun’s heels, and Jonathan Gurney was uncertain that the road would ever end.

Jonathan Gurney was a good man. A decent man. This story really wasn’t meant to be written about him; he is just a pawn, like every other character. His life is just as meaningful or meaningless as the rest. He carries not intrinsic importance. Yet, like all pawns, given the right set of circumstances, and the right mistakes by the opposition, a pawn can become the most important piece.

Jonathan was wide awake, which was making the drive so much worse. He couldn’t zone out and make the ride much shorter. He was aware of everything he was passing, every crack in the pavement he went over at a mile a minute, every house he passed that was near enough the road to see, several mailboxes. It was rather dull to begin with. He knew it would get more difficult when the sun set and he could only see what his headlights would allow. He shuffled in his seat, attempting to get the most comfortable position for the next four hours he could. He had tried playing music earlier, but driving through small towns in Minnesota doesn’t exactly give you a great variety of radio station, he had become too accustomed to the songs on his iPod, so he tried silence instead. He knew it wasn’t anything to worry about or anything like that he knew there were really worse problems than not having anything to listen to on a long drive I mean just think of all the starving kids in Africa and all that I mean there’s really a lot worse and ooh that’s an interesting mailbox painted all red white and blue and oh god the sky really is getting rather cloudy I do believe we will have snow soon which will make this drive oh so much fun and golly this would be a lot more fun with someone else but this job will be totally worth it I mean how much am I getting paid to drive around like this all the time it really is ridiculous but I mean I really need it because it really is no fun to be driving at all hours of the night and
