426 Outbound, Evening Commute

October 17, 2011

And on and on Williams goes. Loud burst of modern speech, silence, repeat. His captive audience is frustrated and shocked.

What I Know (but Only Because You Asked)

September 17, 2011

Drinking beer in public should be allowed for those with a proven record of civic excellence. Like me, for instance.

Manuscript Slightly Above Water

August 18, 2011

I have started this piece the night I will submit it. This is not unusual for a blog, nor is it unusual for most of my writing. I surely think about my subject for some time before sitting down to write, but the experience is not exactly Mozart composing a symphony in his head before […]

Speak, Memory (Part 2): Pages From my Future Memoir

Welcome to Gobblechusetts

April 25, 2011

Anyone who knows me can vouch for this statement: I love Massachusetts. Where outsiders say we’re rude, I say we’re fast-paced. Where some say Michael Jordan, I say Larry Bird.

Late 30s, I join you freely and without too much complaint.

The Laugh of the Psycho

February 3, 2011

I saw Psycho at the absolutely wrong time of my life. When I watched it, probably at around 12 years old, I was that combination of immaturity, imagination, and pubescence that is particularly prone to absorbing the wrong aspects of the world around him or her and laying a path for the rest of a life.
