New Essay, New Look

Just finished some editing on an essay I wrote yesterday, "it's not you, it's not me." It's a happy piece about breakups of all kinds. Take a look!

I'm back in CT for a long weekend for my sister's college graduation. As usual, I came up with some big ideas before I left, and taking several days to "relax" will only make me antsier to get started when I get back.

This site is going to undergo a complete overhaul. As will all my social media platforms. I'll be using Twitter again. I came up with a fun gimmick for Instagram. I hate corporate doublespeak, but we're talking about total synergy! A whole new paradigm!

So if you're looking to get sad, then happy, read my breakup essay, then come back next week and feast your eyes on what's sure to be a feast for your eyes. This site is gonna look goooooooooooooood.

End of an Era

I haven't been posting as much as I'd like, and probably won't post again until next Friday. Why? My final Cavern of Whimsy was last night, and my buddy Pete is staying here for a little while longer on an extended LA vacation.

It may not matter. I've told maybe 3 people that this site is back up and running, even as I've been adding an insane amount of content. Just know, if you are reading, there's plenty more to come. Check back next Friday when the dust settles. You'll see. You'll all see.

Post-Vacation

Went to New Orleans for a long weekend, and that animation I mentioned is still a work in progress.

What else is going on?

1. A new page! 500 Words or Less. Last winter I wrote a handful of 1000-word stories which I then edited extensively and left in my Documents folder. Loosely based on concepts from Emerson's Essays but chiefly inspired by the style of the late, great Raymond Carver, these babies may be of interest to no one but me, and may even be of interest to no one at all!

2. A new essay! "the past does not exist." Read it for yourself and tell me I'm wrong.

Busy week! Gotta get the promo materials out for the final Cavern of Whimsy on May 4th. Plus I've got a standup show Friday night! Busy busy busy busy busy buys
