Just Yes.

Yes, and that is all. This makes you feel good, saying yes.  You are ready.  You are able.  You’re all about saying Yes. However, when it comes down to it, the No is somehow anticipated.  The No is exciting, and we seem to thrive off of it.  We cannot resist, and we cannot deny the opportunity…

Pork and Phish, Economically

Dinosaur Bar-B-Que was born and raised in Upstate New York.  Before the Phish show at Blue Cross Arena in Rochester something had to be put in my stomach, and pulled pork was the way to go.  Saying Upstate is a general to say that since I’m from Syracuse, and I should be boasting the franchise’s…

Spy, Baby… I Wish

To kick things off, I have to express a guilty pleasure of mine.  I don’t know why “Royals” by Lorde is so friggin’ catchy, but it is.  Recently, I began following a blog, papergong, which posts viral YouTube videos.  On papergong, there is a video by Beef Seeds, a bluegrass band, performing their rendition of “Royals.” …

Poem by Kevin Varrone

Taking a break from writing, because everyone deserves a break at times.  The consistency of writing has been great, and yesterday’s post was lengthy.  This is partially writer’s block, but it’s not entirely the reasoning behind the break. Spontaneity and creativity–spontaneous creativitus as it’s been scientifically designated binomally–can happen at any moment.  This is not just true…
