Personal Undergrowth

They ask, “Do you see the forest, or the trees?” and I look up. I blink, maybe, once or twice. I try to process what it is, exactly, that I’ve been asked. I must look stupid to them, because they attempt to explain. “It’s like a metaphor—” And at that point, I just can’t let … Continue reading

Being Human

Maybe this is a little too abstract, but I think… We’re pioneers. We’re small, sometimes unimaginative. Our worlds are minimally connected.

Don’t Be the Drum Machine. Play it in Versus.

“Did you hear what they said? That rock n roll is dead? Yeah, it’s like a zombie–it’ll dig itself back up again.”        – “Internet Killed the Video Star”  The Limousines   I don’t listen to the song much any more.
