EXCERPT FROM "One Continuous Mistake Forever: A Philosophic Examination of the Key Actions and Inactions of Thomas Grinchon" BY VIVIAN DARKBLOOM (1931):

"While it has been variously said that Grinchon's essence; a core at once courageous and uncertain, a powerful strength of will forever misdirected by the anxieties of incomplete information (so very much the problem of modern man!); lies in his intelligence, or his misanthropy, or his fevered desire for a better world, it is this author's opinion that we should view Grinchon's life not as the series of (and let's not shit ourselves here) rather ordinary events, but rather the way he himself viewed it: as the sum of the could-have-beens and should-have-dones and why-didn't-he-justs which hung about his every day like skulking vultures. For it is the shades of these realities that almost came to be which add the depth of feeling and nuance of character that makes Grinchon's life at once so extraordinary, and so, well, typical.

EXCERPT FROM "How He Completely Obliterated All of the Stupid Little Boxes We Used to Put Around Every Damn Thing: Grinchon's Life up to the The Great and Utter Reversal" BY JOHN SHADE (2001)

"Grinchon's mid twenties is a period that has undergone much scrutiny over the years as it is theorized that it was then that the First Cataclysmic Sentence was being constructed. These were seemingly peaceful years for Grinchon - he worked at a coffee shop while attending nursing school and spent most of his time in cafes and bars with his friends or with a book. It is astonishing to think of him at this time, going about his life as though he hadn't already conceived the violent reworking of our feeble attempts at civilization and its half hearted moralities."
I’m really good at
Chess and hugs. Basically.

Oh, and probably owning you in a debate. Sorry.

EXCERPTS FROM "Peering into the Abyss: First Impressions of Grinchon" COLLECTED BY WITTMAN AH SINGH (2011):

- Ronald Reagan

"The eyes! My God! Like sneaky keyhole peeks into Hell..."
- Steve Albini

Is this boring you? I'm getting bored just writing it. Is this important to you? Should it be more important to me?

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Narratives. How we all basically invent stories about ourselves and the world in an attempt to provide meaning where none actually exists.

How to get into your pants.
You should message me if
you are interested in becoming my professional biographer, my bodyguard, or one of my six things I could never do without.

Just do it. I mean, who doesn't want more friends?
