Fake Down

Saturday, June 16th, 2018

I received a General Discharge from the United States Navy in June of 2012.
Shortly after my flight from Tokyo to Seattle, I began working on a manuscript that covers adolescence through early adulthood:
-high school years/jobs in the suburbs of Texas and St. Louis
-college years/jobs
-in between years/jobs bouncing from StL, Brooklyn, San Antonio, and Austin
-my enlistment (RTC/DINFOS/USS George Washington)
-as well as some added vignettes to strengthen the themes and continue building narrative momentum

You can find the first 7 chapters in PDF form here:

Fake Down Chapters 1-7


Of course, there is accompanying music. A song for each chapter that share similar tone/theme/ideas/etc.

There is a total of 86 chapters (78,000 words) of this self-absorbed work that is entirely guilty of navel-gazing.
If you’re into that kind of thing, the complete manuscript is available upon request.

Election Season is Over

Tuesday, November 6th, 2012


And on the day before the election, Jon Stewart delivered the thought that appropriately closed 2012’s Election Season:

It seems that political organizations and political parties have become whiny bastions of faux-persecuted-victimized individuals that feel like anyone who doesn’t agree with their worldview is persecuting them… do you want to punch them?

—- Jon Stewart to Martha Raddatz on 11/05/2012

It would not be correct to leave out the “punch” part of the bit, but yes, it was in jest- and it was meant to all of those who feel like whoever disagrees with them is, in some way, out to get them.

The meat of that quote- using “faux-persecuted-victimized individuals” to describe partisan folks is too good to ignore.



go ahead…

I realize that there’s not much multi-media stuff on here.  I apologzie for that.  I’ll put forth more effort to get videos, pictures, and music posted in the near future.

I was just hoping to get some essays and fiction flowing and hoping to get feedback from… well, anyone.

So go ahead and post or email me feedback, and I’ll throw some effort into making this a more entertaining site soon enough.
