Back on my bullshit

More horoscopes!



the best thing I found on the internet

Look at this raccoon


My best thing is an animal that reminds me very strongly of a human being, and this raccoon is the indisputable leader of that category.

I wrote something quite sort of heavy and intense about this weird raccoon photo, because I guess I feel very strongly about it.

Something I wrote got translated into Italian!

I don’t know if I have any right to be as thrilled about this as I am. People translate things all the time. It also goes without saying that I cannot speak or read Italian, so all I can do is look at the words, but STILL.

A Story that is very close to my Heart

Some people have told me that this made them laugh and that is gr8 but I can tell you that I wrote it with a very very stern frown on my face the whole time.

He doesn’t hate the wind as much as me but I think he did a very good job of taking photos that made me hate it in a more nuanced and vicious way.

This one is about Middlemarch, and Blood Meridian, and how much I will never read A Little Life, probably:
