What I've Been Working On.

Blog's a little lonely these days.

I'm sorry, hon. I've been trying to craft a living out of nothing. I know you've been lonely. My typing fingers aren't as accurate as they used to be either.

But here's the thing...

I'm still unemployed. This isn't the first time that I've been chucked out like the trash for one reason or another. But this is the first time where I've decided to not rely on someone else to hire me. This is the first time where I decided to go my own direction, the first time where I make my own future, to actually contribute to society. I love to write. I also like creating things. I want to do what I love, but in order to do that, I want to do the thing that I like.

But that's old news, blah blah blah...heard it all before. This is what I've been working on.

Latest design. I'm still falling in love with this style, and every project I've been working on having been gravitating around it. However, these days, I've kind of been throwing in the towel because finding the resources I need have become scarce (damn you, Shutterstock). So instead of spending hours looking for stuff I already have, or finding a way around getting the good stuff for free without getting busted for it. I decided that if you can't beat 'em, join 'em. Details will come soon in my Portfolio page...eventually.

Anyway, I spent all weekend sweating over the smaller details while diving headfirst into some sort of philosophical conundrum. Today was dedicated to actually putting it together. I'm okay with it. Trying to figure out if I want this as t-shirt material or not. Anyway, it's late and I'm tired of looking at this for the day.

Taking any and all advice and criticism. Thank you very much.

The Strays of Hotel Pine St. Part 2


Another November has come calling to our Hotel. In an ideal world, it would be as quaint as a Grandma Moses painting this time of year; everyone all snug and cozy in their idyllic, New England scenery and stiff linen shirts while somewhere a hearth was burning bright against the impending gloom that was lumbering in from the top left corner of the canvas. But for our little building in our little neighborhood, we had to make do with what was offered.

Being an old building, every corner and joint, everywhere where wood met wood, there was air escaping through it. Fortunately, air conditioning is a foreign concept for many of the historical buildings in Maine. A cool breeze was a good friend to have in July, but by November, he has worn out his welcome. Drafty. But, as time went on, you eventually got used to the klunk-klunk-klunk of the window in the living room that was dangling by sheer will itself every time a breeze wanted to let itself out. You eventually didn't not…

So Glad You Asked (Warning: Contains Lame Top 5 List)

There are a dozen things on my plate that are begging for my attention at the moment; not least of which is trying to find gainful employment.
I just bought stacks of index cards this weekend, so I'm pretty serious about writing Chapter 2 and beyond for my current piece of fiction. At least, that's what I keep telling myself.I have to finish a company logo for a re-launching of one of my brands. I love the process, but designing is still “French As a Second Language” type of thing for me. Left to my own devices, something that should take minutes takes hours.There are courses that I started weeks ago and have yet to finish; Not because they're boring, which they are, but because I have begun to question the validity of such an endeavor to begin with. I'm I helping myself, or am I kidding myself? And cooking and cleaning and on and on... Oh, and not to mention that something had better change for the good soon because I'm going to be welcoming another child into my …

With Apologies To Crosley Owners (A Brief Overview of the Crosley C200A)

Let's talk about fandoms for a minute.

Fandoms usually revolve around a particular celebrity, fictional character or pop culture staple. Fandoms have been around for as long as anyone can remember, and seem to have a direct correlation to serialized fiction: Turn of the Century fans of  "Sherlock Holmes":: Present day fans of "Game of Thrones".

At their best, fandoms could boost an economy, foreshadow a direction in which a society is headed, and cultivate new paradigms and metrics in which we as consumers purchase things.

At their worst, they're a dense jungle filled with big animals with big teeth who look at you as a nice little snack.

Actually, that's not true. Uummmm...

At their worst, they're a gauntlet of San Quintin lifers, and it's your first day in the slam, and they're all looking at you like you're a nice little snack...

...holy hell, where did that come from? Okay, one more time...

At their worst, they are a society of unwa…
