This is me in a few weeks…

Blog Update – Good Times

There has most definitely been blog inconsistency over the last couple of weeks and I wish I could explain it. I think I’ve just been exhausted. I remember a couple of nights where I would get home from work and quickly end up in my...

–From The How Did We Get Here Series– Now: Dexter Lewis slid the Hershey Bar, lighter, and cigarettes from the plastic bag as Harris began driving away from the convenience store. Harris looked over and asked, “Where’d you get the cigarettes, bro?” Before: Dexter stood...

WWDC 2021 is Almost Here!

This is the yearly event I look forward to. The event where Apple releases the beta version of the next operating system. The conference is all about software and in rare circumstances Apple has announced hardware but since this is a software conference, I wouldn’t...

It’s June!

You know what that means? No more crappy weather allowed. From here until, like, October… I am the king of nothing in particular and I have spoken.

Tundra

I usually don’t post this one. This particular one caught my attention and just struck me as hilarious.

XKCD Comic and Dilbert

Love these.

Writing Through Pain

A great article and couldn’t be timelier for me. Grief is the ultimate thief of creativity. As artists, we have a duty to observe and experience those poignant moments so we can better portray them in our art. But experiencing them isn’t always conducive to...

Weird Series of Events

I would start this sentence with “so” except that every time you do, I think a small child dies somewhere. I was on the fence about going to my brother’s funeral. Why? There are any number of reasons but the main reason is that there...

–From The How Did We Get Here Series– Now: Chad Hess stood on the pier with a look of disgust and heart break as Nicole Harris told him that she would not marry him and that his present condition was obviously a “sign.” Before: Chad...

Services Update

It looks like I am going to attend the services for my baby brother because in this instance, it would seem completely wrong for me not to attend. My brother and I weren’t really close in the latter part of his life but we were...

Jony Ive’s Commencement Address

This is absolutely fabulous from someone who doesn’t really feel comfortable giving speeches.

Funerals

I’ll tell you why I think funerals are archaic and stupid. It is because they are not about the person who actually died. They are about a bunch of people who knew the dead person and who come together to make themselves feel better about...

R.I.P. – Aaron Allen Patrick Troutman

The name may not mean anything to my readers but that is the name of my little brother. He died last evening in a car accident. I am still trying to process that fact that he is gone.

HDWGH – Story 32 – Easter Surprise

–From The How Did We Get Here Series– Now: Jessica Simmons looked up from the holy water in Saint Michael’s Church’s vestibule to find three priests staring at her with crossed arms and shocked looks on their faces. Brown chunks of biological matter floated around...

Obituary Madness

I find it immensely entertaining to read the obituary pages of my local newspaper. Why? Well, because of all of the bullshit in the short articles about each person. I’m not talking about wild claims of how good of a person they were. No. I’m...

Big Toe Fun

I was in a very big hurry to get my Amazon packages off the front porch when (much to my surprise) I slammed my big toe into a section of the house and broke it open. It hurts. It doesn’t hurt as much as I...

Unrecognized

This is the first time that I can remember that I don’t recognize any of the names on the famous birthdays page of the newspaper.

HDWGH – Story 31 – Movie Theater Madness

HDWGH – Story 31 – Movie Theater Madness –From The How Did We Get Here Series– Now: The whole audience turned back in their seats to look at a very naked Marissa James riding young Jared Harper’s cock. Marissa’s immediate guess as to the undivided...

Tiredness

I am tired. That is why you are only getting a drive by post today. The only thing I can complain about today is the weather. Only the afternoon weather. It rained all of the way into work and I fucking loved it. Ok. That...

Apple News

I absolutely love the Apple News app. The News app on my iPhone that is. The News app on my computer is something quite different. For me, it all comes down to one simple thing. It is the inability to save anything to Instapaper. Even...
