Understanding in a Car Crash

Hey, Thursday, I’m just borrowing the title of your hit song to coincide with my post. It’s banking off the idea, but I’ve always respected you as a band. For those not knowing the song:   On Saturday, the plan was to have an updated post, but it didn’t happen due to having fun. Yes,…

Pesky Chimeras

The post for today’s The Inevitable Coffee Ring was more out there than it actually ended up. Which I’m fine with. That’s what happens when you think writing and passages through, which has been happening more and more with me. There really is no abandoning stream of conscious writing, but there is that looming questioning on…

One for the Books

The first two choices of songs by This Will Destroy You were “Threads” and “They Move On Tracks of Never-Ending Light,” but it cannot be remembered or quickly found, which one was used in a previous post. Both may have been used for all we know, but let’s play it safe (for once) and not…

The second part today, which is taking the place of the regular Espresso Shot segment. Instead, I will have to compensate with two shots of espresso (perhaps) next week. It depends on how…

Stepping Out, Away

There are a handful of posts about my wanting to see the movie Beginners, which stars Ewan McGregor and Christopher Plummer and Melanie Laurent. I got to finally see it, and the movie is amazing. It’s honest, and it’s more of a drama with aspects of romance and comedy appropriately interwoven. There is uncertainty why the…

Smacking Some Balls Around

In today’s Espresso Shot at the Syracuse New Times, it gets a little zany. Aside a small scoop of growing up in Syracuse suburbia, references to pop culture and books plague the post. Talk of clowns, castles, live action role playing, gremlins, mysterious doors, Nosferatu, Chris van Allsburg, and Super Mario all play a part in…
