No, really. THIS is how I do it.I think about a lot of random stuff and I like to write it down. I believe in a lot of things and I think an equal amount of stuff is total crap.

Going to leave this brokedown palace, On my hands and knees, I will roll, roll, roll. I went to see a friend tonight that I had not seen in years. We were thinking that it had probably been Pre-Y2K the … Continue reading
For the last month, I (inadvertently) conducted a social experiment. It was inadvertent insofar as I never really planned to be hosting a Cowboy in the City, but then, as we all know… the best laid plans… Anyhow, the experiment … Continue reading
I now know someone who does not use the internet. Seriously. Does. Not. Use. It. Lives without Google, without Z.E.E. (Zuckerberg’s Evil Empire), without the inclination to Tweet that which might be profound. Or profoundly banal. Imagine this. It is … Continue reading
Last week was busy and manic and potentially tumultuous. Starting out with a surprisingly significant personal disappointment, moving through a stressful professional situation, and culminating with an emotional few days with my stressed out end-of-smester kids.
