Thanks

Thank you, beef jerky, for your beckoning saltiness and leathery toughness yielding to sweet chewy reward. A special thanks to the flat round rocks that would skip across lakes for me, disturbing the tranquil calm of the water's surface and momentarily ignoring physics. Thank you, Vitruvius, for inv...

The Collector

Rusty nails of varying lengths and thickness fill coffee can after coffee can on the dusty, worn work bench at the back of my grandfather’s garage. They’re joined by air and oil filters for cars sold twenty years ago, assorted PVC piping, 30 amp double-throw circuit breakers, stacks of Argosy and Fi...

The Moment of Mile One Thousand

When you pull out of the driveway at midnight, the traffic lights blinking yellow and red, and watch your odometer flip over that first mile, you steal a kiss and a smile from your fiancée, your navigator, and drum your fingers excitedly on the soft vinyl of your steering wheel. The freeway is yours...

Exposed: A One-sentence Essay

When you first notice that your right hand has turned an unusual shade of purple, you stop whatever it is you were doing up until that moment of realization and focus all of your attention on your inexplicably discolored extremity because the truth is, unless you somehow horribly crushed it in a war...

Discovery and Stabbing Westward

The first time I heard “Waking Up Beside You” by Stabbing Westward, I was sixteen and six months into my relationship with Sarah, the first real love of my life. This was my first exposure to genuine industrial music, not the watered-down, generic prattle that drones on the local Top 40 FM stations,...

I miss him because I loved him so much. I miss him because It’s winter now, and I hear almost nothing. The little I do hear he was my hero. I miss him because there’s so much is of such clarity that I feel aware of my surroundings for I still want to say to him. I miss him because he never got to mi...

Fading Light

The cerulean blues of the sky have already given way to warmer tones of yellow, pink and red. The colors are continuously reflected and refracted by the restless surface of Lake Superior. The sight is certainly familiar, but I find myself taken aback by its sheer magnitude. The horizon stretches on ...

On Being a Dick

My new hobby is to find poorly constructed craigslist posts and fuck with the people who list them. I use a throwaway email address and arrange meetings for pickups that never happen, usually requiring them to drive somewhere. I'll even call from one of my GrandCentral numbers if they don't want to ...

Jerry Goldsmith was a genius.

I'm often surrounded by Star Trek. As I write this, I'm wearing a Starfleet Academy hoodie, there's a photo on my desk of me in a Borg regeneration chamber, and my desk lamp is adorned with the small communicator pin that I wore on my tie at my wedding. Also, one of my Next Gen DVDs is playing on my...

Some habits are hard to shake.

Many of you know of one of my longest-held addictions: ripping off Wal-Mart. Now, I've never shoplifted from a Wal-Mart in my life, but I've certainly found other, more creative ways of eating into the profits of this corporation. Below are some of my greater efforts. The A/C Swap I bought a cheap w...

First Contact: Star Trek's Magnum Opus

Even without the Borg, this makes for an excellent concept. The new Enterprise While there will always be a special...

Since When?

October 27, 1984. That was the day I first came to Puckaway. I was exactly three weeks old. Think about that. There's another family living in the house where I grew up. Both of my parents have held down several different jobs. Pets that once ran through the marshes up here are now buried beneath th...

Play with the compatibility mode settings, and you should be fine. Alternatively, you can get an emulator called DosBox, which I needed to run an old version of The Incredible Machine.

Observations

I started a notebook when I went up to Puckaway this weekend. Figured I'd share some of it with you. This is the most clear passage so far. Sometimes I’ll just stand out there, observing. Usually very late, very bright for evening, and quiet. A light breeze can tell you the time of year. In spring, ...

All of the old posts have been restored. Unfortunately, the comments could not be. Either way, everything is working again. Thanks for reading.

I'm afraid though that it isn't. I've discovered the glory of On Demand programming. Side n...

Yeah, that title doesn't make sense... I just like the song. Anyway, I haven't much to say, but I've been rather lax in my postings so I figured one was about due. Last night I went to Wal Mart with Tuck and noticed that Oshkosh has been blessed with an Xbox 360 kiosk. Well, I picked up the familiar...
