rife with aromas that stick to your ribs;
Life is full-to-brim with verve,
an artful unfolding that can (& should)
hit you like cold water to the face
and the significances
(allusion, metaphor, etc.)
in everything one can do.
In carpentry, for instance, there are few things as satisfying as making a perfect cut. The requisite precision of measurement, the texture and grain of the wood (the 6 sides & 8 corners) coming together, the intimidation of the whirring blade,
But when you nail it, you nail it.
It's fulfilling, gratifying.
And for a moment, all the shit of the world seems alright; tolerable;
even if you know there's no such thing as a perfectly square room.

I read a little bit, but not enough to hurt me none.
Maurice Sendak, Theodore Geisel, and Shel Silverstein...
Going to the cinema has been my favorite past time since I was pre-teen. The collaboration aspect of it is thrilling to me.
if you don't like movies, swipe left, or whatever.
Also, if you don't breathe,
if your heart no longer pumps blood,
if the only food you crave is brains—
yea, I'm talking to YOU, Zombies!
SWIPE LEFT, ZOMBIES!
I am NOT INTERESTED!
High 5 if you're familiar w/ this line:
"I have a malignancy in my prostate,
but when you're in my arms, it's benign."
So long as I have Jon Stewart & Stephen Colbert
2016 has been a brutal year.
As far as we can tell, the velociraptor
is the distant ancestor to the chicken.
Accordingly, I eats the shit outta some chicken.
It's like revenge therapy for the terror they
brought to life on Jurassic Park
Meatless Mondays, tho.
(can't unring that bell)
this is one of them…
what to do with such awareness?!
The mind/body split,
The 7/10 split,
The fe/male split...
seriously, the gender gap?
for how long does this remain at the core of our being?
(the ultimate biological trick!),
(what a punch line!)
& the Great Cosmic Joke
I'm not a stud.
I'm not a creep:
I'm not collecting notches...
I'm looking for someone.
Maybe it's you…
Here's a screener:
Are you a feminist?
Are you anti racist?
Do you hate homophobia?
Do you love yourself?
Do you love sex
and a filthy sense of humor?
If you answered 'no' to any of those questions, swipe left (or whatever)
You've earned this...
…you own or have access to a hot dog outfit
...you like to make fart noises in museums &/or churches
...you like to talk film or music or theory or physics or make fart noises in museums &/or churches
...you'd like to go to a museum or church, or see a film or live music or eat food that's incredibly delicious 'for the price'!
...if, when listening to The Stooges, you get a little wobbly in the knees
...if you like dirty old men
(cuz that's pretty much what I am)
...or, if you just want to make fart noises in museums &/or churches—I really can't stress enough how much I want you to say 'yes' to this.
