War Journal

I’m lying here, watching sand drip out of an hourglass. Next week, something I didn’t imagine  without a miracle or life-changing amounts of money changing hands happens. I want it to be a surprise, so I’m being painfully vague here. But thank you for any support you’ve ever given my overcomplicated brand of comedy/literature/street art/neurosurgery.

In short, I can’t wait.

Small note for the fitness heads: I can do real archer pull-ups now.

The Present

This week on Weeaboo Hell, the second half of our Star Wars: Visions conversation. This one isn’t split in two because my co-host’s off in Austin. It’s split in two because I’m lazier than a Hutt.

The Past

After The New York Times gave up on keeping my subscription and published Tom Cotton’s general call for American History X curb-stompings, I wrote a riff on the situation for Hard Drive.

The Future

Every day, my book draws nearer. If we’re to survive its wrath, we must shield ourselves with preorders.

The next prank’s a climate change riff, that I’m very proud of the style and content of.
