I see faces everywhere. No,

I see faces everywhere. No, I don’t mean I hallucinate people. For me, random patterns usually resolve into faces. Often several different ones. My shower stall is a blue plastic marble pattern. In the eight years I’ve lived here, I still see new faces in it. A sampling: Santa Satan Two Mullahs Kermit the Frog, his head tilted back in… (more…)

11 hours left. I am

11 hours left. I am not an asshole.

You know, I thought that

You know, I thought that while doing this blogathon I would get a bunch of updates done–all sorts of web stuff I had to do. Problem is, sitting here at the computer makes me sleepy. Oh well. So I’m off puttering around the house or watching movies or reading comics. Guess the house gets cleaner that way.

I don't know how much

I don’t know how much longer I’ll be able to avoid telling stories about my mother. I’d like to save that until the last few hours, when I’m truly groggy and morose. I have a few ideas. Bear with me–I had to take a quick shower-break. It’s getting very hot here.

What is this odd relationship

What is this odd relationship between the web and Mr. T? I don’t know if it started with Mr. T Ate My Balls, but that was the first I’d heard of it. Somehow Mr. T has a resonance with the web subculture. Wacky, but not crazy. There is now an entire Yahoo! category for Mr. T vs X, the newest… (more…)

13 hours to go. I've

13 hours to go. I’ve gotten over the asshole thing. You see, if I am attempting to blog every 15 minutes for 24 hours, I think I’m entitled to spend one blog in four just expounding on progress. It’s like keeping score. Also, just to be absolutely clear, my ultimate goal is one blog per hour. Andre thought going every… (more…)
