The Masterplan

I’ve recently had inspiration regarding the next poetry project in my head. Basically, I’ve figured out the plot. It’s going to be tough to write. The main character is still percolating in my head, but basically, she is going to be dealing with someone close to her transitioning. And then, because I’m fucking lame like […]

Class Anger. Grr.

I mean, seriously. I am just kind of going crazy with this Research class. Yes, I’ll get everything done. Yes, I’ll survive and pass it just fine. I’m not going to let it hold me back or anything. But DAMN. So frustrating. The core of the frustration stems from the way the majority of the […]

IoTM Review: Constructions

Kingdom of Loathing loves its Librams, but hey, at least it created a fairly new sort of Libram in the Libram of BRICKOs. This lets you summon BRICKO bricks, which you can then use to build various things. Some are equipment, like the BRICKO Pants or BRICKO sword, but most are actually monsters that you […]

I Hope, I Think, I Know

I’m pretty sure, if I write another book of poetry after this one, it’s going to be all Oasis song titles. Why? Fuck if I know. I mean, I still have a very unclear idea why every poem in Why I Am Here, Even Today is titled after a Presidents of the United States of […]

For me, always / the delight is the surprise.

Keeping the poetry hits rolling! I read The Wild Iris, by Louise Gluck. This one won a Pulitzer prize! I didn’t get much out of it. Okay, that’s not completely true? There were three poems that really, really spoke to me. I stuck pieces of paper in the book to save them for later, for […]

Puppy Love, and Lack Thereof

Sunday night, I got home late, and I was greeted by my dog bounding out of the parents’ bedroom, dashing down the stairs, and jumping all over me excitedly. She was so happy to see me, and we sat down and played for awhile. And this made me very sad. I called up Brer, and […]

Back and Forth

Karen gave me a list of books of poetry that may be relevant to my interests based on what she knew about my own book I was looking at. I didn’t really know what to expect: she hadn’t really see the fairly… sexual side of the book yet. However, if I was going to make […]

Birthday Strategery

Yeah, okay, so it’s a month away. Yeah, so it’s kind of self-serving. But man, sometimes these birthday things require strategy. Especially when your family has absolutely no clue about the things you are into. If you remember how much I hate March, the month of my birth, you’ll recall there are many key titles […]

IoTM Review: Incredible Transformations

Because of some footing-ball event that may have happened this month, the IoTM in Twilight Heroes was the Insanely Super XL Bowl. Now, this is an item I get behind. Not only is it mechanically interesting (and also a bit telling about where TH is going to go in the future) but it’s also just […]

Sapphire for Bonding

I once suggested, casually, that Jonathan try League of Legends. “Oh, it’s like DotA,” I said. “You’d probably enjoy messing around with it.” He said he’d try it. Now, basically all of his free time is spent playing it. He’s dropped a sum of money on new Champions, and plays at least a game every […]
