I took a shower with the lights off and talked like no one was in there.
Later that night I coughed up enough grease so that I could share
the lead in my chest with the upside-down chalice
you fastened over your eyes.
So when you level the joints and the adversaries point
you can just tell them you went blind.

listen to Leonard Cohen much?

i'm pathetic. i'm that guy. that guy that waits out weekends for phone calls and Mysthpace Messagesth that will never come.

must be nice to be a social nexus. i'll never know.


NP:Leonard Cohen-One Of Us Can't Be Wrong
NP:Unearthly Trance-Shinobi (Eyehategod song)

so i got my two copies of the Userlands anthology. came out pretty excellent. the image on the book cover looks like something Cronenberg picked off his scalp. my favorite piece in their has to be David Saa Viccenzo Estornell's "The Confined of the Saint-Sepulcre Covent". it's a fucking deadly read. totally inhuman, geniunely bizarre writing. also really enjoyed "Kali Yuga" by James Chapagne. not only because his name is James Champagne, but because the story is pretty funny, conversational without being dumbed down, and something of an eye-opener when it comes to the big-chain bookstores. it's the perfect comic releif for this particular collection.

i'm pretty happy with how my piece "Lycanthropy Wife" came out. i do feel it's a tad overwrought in some spots, but that's something that's always been a problem with me..i get worked into a tizzy over a piece and it spirals out of control. it works for the piece i suppose, but i can see how it's going to turn a few readers off. also now that i look at it i can see my "casual cribbing" of M. Gira's the Consumer actually borders on grand larceny, but that's ok. 'i was only 22" i tell them.

coffee's forcing the dump to burrough to my ass. lata.

NP:A Perfect Circle-Passive

barking dog woke me up at 5:30 am. it's an hour later. yesterday i was told i was "fun". not sure how to take that. talk in sentence fragments? might work. hurm.

i feel lately i'm leading a double life, where neither one of them is really a "life" i guess i have a double no-life. you'd think it add up, or even out, but that's why i suck at math.

documentaries on Motorhead and Hunter S. Thompson are on TV tonight. sometimes things do work out.
