“Persei 8 Blues”


Your cousin has a new shitcoin to talk to you about.

Everyone is eligible for four free positive Omicron tests.

Russia likes the furniture in Ukraine, but isn’t in love with it. They’ll probably replace it.

Microsoft bought the left half of your controller.

Democrats are projected to do that thing Democrats do.

Anne Coulter called Trump irrelevant, and a constant projector.

War Journal

Tapping at a second book. I like it.


I’m a little antsy. I can’t wait to see the splash zone reactions on two upcoming essays (closest word), but have no idea when they’ll come out.

I’ve also have a prank on the same topic get delayed, which is sub-ideal for my momentum and/or personality type. There’s no point dwelling on it, except I’m a professional dweller. I’m paid and praised for my dwelling ability. When I buy a house, it’ll be called “The Dwelling.”

Que sera blah blah. That’s why they call me Dennard “Patience” Dayle.


I’ve been thinking a bit about my late Mom. Not in the weepy sense, but the abstract “I wonder what she’d say” sense. She had good one-liners for current events, and my career is mostly based on stealing them.


I’ve started a game called Code Vein that was pitched to me as “embarassingly Weeaboo Dark Souls.” So far, every word of that is true. The trick is that it’s also mechanically solid, and I have an abiding love for janky gaming experiences.


Still reading The Count of Monte Cristo. Controversial spoilers: it’s good.

The Present

Part 2 of our forced march through Naruto on Weeaboo Hell made me laugh, so I’m hoping it treats you well too.


My Twitter text adventure, Space Vengeance – Retaliation, continues. It’s essentially me doing a daily exercise without stakes, and I’m enjoying it a great deal.

 The Past

I have a soft spot for this riff about office e-mails.

The Future

My minions tell me Everything Abridged will be in all cool bookstores April 26th.


I have another New Yorker thing and another McSweeney’s thing in the pipeline. No idea when they come out, but at least I haven’t spiraled into irrelevance yet.


Did some concept-level editing on an upcoming prank. I think it’ll be a fun time. Well, I’ll have fun. Some of you might be furious.


The artist is chugging away at the gag comic. That, and working to live, which is taking away from chugging time. Hopefully live this month.


Honestly, I have a dozen articles and stories written out. Selling them, however, is a bit of a challenge.

One Sentence Reviews
