Hello, world! But 20-some years later. The basic 'why' of 'what' I'm doing here.
Do you see that? Do you know what that is? Okay, yeah, you're probably rolling your eyes and going damnit, why this? No! But...this isn't your regular hokey fundraiser. Stuff is cheap. There's a reason I chose Indiegogo versus just purchasing an ecommerce package (which I will cover later). Legit y'all...the ebook is $3 and a single … Continue reading Shameless Self-Promotion: My First Book!
Things have been quiet 'round these parts lately. There are several reasons for it, but they boil down to that I am too fed up and exhausted to yammer on here when I am working on my own projects and day job full time. Things are just too much, much too much right now. We … Continue reading Dear Millennial and Gen-Z Straight, White, Cis Men
Quora is an interesting platform that I can't help but get sucked into.

The day I hopped … Continue reading Trauma Doesn’t Have a Timeline

My weekday alarms start going off around 5:30. I'm a morning person and usually love it, eager to be up before them and turn them off one by one as the morning progresses, like a static to-do list that never expires. Yet I'm diurnal; it's less about the literal hour and more about the rise … Continue reading Vocal Analysis Report: Michael Jackson Was An Objectively Superior Vocalist, Didn’t Sing on the Cascio Tracks
Well. The past couple weeks have been quite adventurous, to put it in some kind of way. While it was a conscious decision to begin sharing my experience with the Serova v Sony suit here and kind of "out" myself as one of those Michael Jackson superfans; I didn't expect so much to happen so quickly, … Continue reading It’s Inevitable, Ain’t It?
