  1. AUTOBIOGRAPHY by Morrissey

    My print version is on its way. Should have it in a week or so. But in the meantime I am going to start reading it as an eBook on my tablet. This is an ongoing post, updated regularly until I finish the book. Cover... First photos... Let the reading begin... Good morning. And indeed it is. After reading Moz's book in bed last night, I slept like a baby. Didn't want to put it down. But I knew I had a busy day up ahead. This is going to sound cliche, but the book is a page...
  2. Hilariously Depressing Smiths Lyrics ~ Part II

    This has been a re-commitment ceremony of sorts... this active listening and lyrics posting. In these last two weeks, I have listened to well over 200 Morrissey songs. My journey is now complete. So, what effect has it had upon my fandom, a friend recently asked? Well... I am going to give it a few days to marinate. And then I will let you know. Next Thursday, the 29th, I am going to see Morrissey 25: Live in Sedona. I plan to blog about my experience. Perhaps I will address the fandom...
  3. It`s Hard To Live in Here

    I`ve been getting by I guess. I think I`ve been trying more than I ever have before.It`s okay sometimes and sometimes it`s not. I want to do so much and my body,my brain won`t let me.I don`t have a great deal of energy.I love to read and there are days when I just can`t.It`s really frustrating.This illness wants to take over me.I get so tired of fighting this all the time.Nothing is ever just right.It`s too much,too little it`s all or nothing.Some days I just want to curl up in a ball,roll...
  4. , a month of music & I'm not a good boyfriend

    mood: just opened a bottle of Jameson, so you tell me? music: Skylar Grey, someone turned me onto her stuff a few days ago What can I say, it was a crazy night, the barrage of fireworks lit up the sky and streets for hours on end, I have not heard or seen anything like it since the "Gulf War". Yes, I woke up screaming late in the night, dreaming of shooting people in green light and seeing explosions dulled to a faded green by my thermal sight, luckily someone was there to hold me and...
  5. Martin Amis Without Hitchens

    Author Martin Amis on coping with the loss of his best friend Christopher Hitchens... When Christopher Hitchens died in December, Martin Amis lost his best friend. The British author says his immediate desolation gave way to a much greater love of life, something Amis believes Hitchens had in spades and bequeathed to him when he passed away.

  6. James Franco ~ Renaissance Man

    Some of us are so thick with talent, it's almost impossible to spread ourselves too thin. We are gifted with an endless supply of unbridled ability and a drive that keeps us moving fast forward. In the entertainment world, Justin Timberlake and Beyonce Knowles come to mind. Both are triple—maybe quadrupole—threats. They sing, dance, act, and are generally nice, polite, and likable people. Unfortunately, most of us aren't the caretakers of such gifts—myself included. I am not blessed with any...
  7. Heavy Industry and Ruins Porn

    I am going to share something with you that you may not know about me. I like porn. All kinds of porn. Human fleshy glossies and foodie shots, but most of all, heavy industry and ruins porn. What the heck is that, you ask? It is photography of urban decay... abandoned deindustrialization artifacts such as buildings, factories, houses, bridges, parking lots etc. But not all ruins porn is titillating to me. We all have our preferences right? My niche? Heavy industry, baby! Bring on the blast...
  8. A Manual for Creating Atheists

    [MEDIA=youtube]8f70wZ-mLR8[/MEDIA] This is a summary/study guide of sorts for myself and anyone else interested in Street Epistemology. *I am learning to be more tolerant and less judgmental through reading this book. The title is slightly misleading. This book is not about evangelizing. The goal is not to convert anyone into an atheist. The idea is to teach critical thinking skills which will move a person from a faith-based epistemology to a reason-based one. Hopefully this will further...
  9. Catch Me If You Can

    There are all kinds of people online, just as there are all kinds of people IRL. Fortunately I am able to steer clear of the psychopaths IRL. It is easy; one just avoids certain environments that they might otherwise run into one—like seedy nightclubs. Think of the film, Looking for Mr. Goodbar. Shivers. But avoiding 'not right in the head' types online is next to impossible. Creeps gravitate towards message boards and dating sites like moths to flames. I have an internet stalker as you...
  10. James Dean: LIFE

    I hope this is an accurate account of their friendship - which was platonic, by the way. I can see Robert Pattinson as Dennis Stock, but I'm having some trouble with who they chose to play Jimmy. Dane DeHaan looks more like a cross between Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio to me. I hate to admit it, but even Franco looked more like Dean than DeHaan. Hell, Morrissey's nephew, Johnny, looks more like James Dean. I have tried and tried, but I just don't see James Dean in this DeHaan kid....
  11. Fifty Shades of Grey Dream Cast

    I am going to play casting director and post my picks for who I think should play the characters in the soon to be made film adaptation of the book Fifty Shades of Grey. The list is ongoing and subject to change. Christian Grey: Alex Pettyfer Why? He's the hottest young actor out there right now. He has Christian's chiseled, gorgeous face, his lean, muscular bod, his generous height, and his messy hair. Plus he is fairly new on the scene and would be able to devote a few years to the...

  13. 2012 London Olympics Opening Ceremony

    I'm watching a prerecorded taping of the Opening Ceremony in HD. View Complete Set of Companion Photos of Opening Ceremony Part I I'm about twenty-five minutes into the program. The Olympic circles are coming together overhead as workers of the industrial revolution beat their drum sticks along to the epic music. Tears are welling up in my eyes. What? I'm not even British. Why so emotional? I dunno. About thirty minutes in, James Bond picks up the Queen from Buckingham Palace....
  14. Olympics Closing Ceremony ~ A Screenshot Memoir of WTF? Moments

    After my seriously brain-draining last blog post about consciousness and other metaphysical stuff, I aim to keep this post light and ridiculously irrelevant. So, the London 2012 Olympics have come to a close. I can't provide much commentary on the games themselves as I only tuned into the men's and women's artistic gymnastics competitions. But as you may recall, I live-blogged the opening ceremony. For the closing ceremony, I have decided to post screen captures of my favorite visuals as...
