Hallelujah, preacher, I can hear again! | February 28, 2001
So regular readers will already be familiar with the saga over my ear problems - the infection I got nearly four years ago and couldn't afford to get treated; the development of a chollesteatoma as a result; the surgery I...

"You have to come watch me pee now." | February 27, 2001
It was the moment my friend Alice* said this to me on Saturday night that I really understood that I was at a party with a bunch of poets. In fact, my entire weekend kind of mirrored this experience -...

Brain...still...fuzzy... | February 22, 2001
I can remember, when I was 19 years old and smoking pot for the first period in my life, getting so completely fucking high in the evening that my brain would just feel like a gray little fuzzy lump rattling...

A bed and breakfast for slackers. | February 21, 2001
So for some reason or another, this idea popped into my head earlier this week and I haven't been able to shake it. It's a concept I came up with years ago for running a small business, a really cool...

Stalking George Clooney. | February 19, 2001
I can honestly say that I had a great weekend. Really, how many times can any of us say that anymore? Friday after work I headed to the Lincoln Lodge, a comedy show that my friend Shappy was performing at...

I like Sara Smiley. | February 16, 2001
Sara Smiley is my new audiologist down at Illinois Masonic Hospital. In fact, Sara Smiley is the one getting me all fitted for my new hearing aid, which will be arriving around the first of March. Sara Smiley actually does...

Pass the apple pie, and shut the fuck up! | February 14, 2001
If I had a nickel for each time this sentence was said in the early 90s during our Twin Peaks parties, I could've bought my way into a cameo on the show. Yesterday I published a guest essay by my...

Stephrok watches Twin Peaks. | February 13, 2001
Today's front page is guest-written by my friend Steph, otherwise known in poetry circles as "Stephrok, the Original Gangsta." I think the essay speaks for itself; I'll add my own memories of Twin Peaks tomorrow. - x - Don't tell...

Another Sunday, another beautiful comedian. | February 12, 2001
I'm not sure whether to feel blessed or cursed right now by the fact that I keep meeting and hanging out with all these new beautiful women - Liz, Hope, Faith, etc. On the one hand it's great -- because...

Represent, Jason, represent! | February 9, 2001
How come no one shouts that at the poetry slam when I'm taking the stage? I guess I ain't keeping it real - oh, well. I actually had a really good time at the Wam Bam poetry slam at Mad...

My el buddy was on the train again today. | February 8, 2001
She's this woman who lives in my neighborhood. I know absolutely nothing about her, but there's all these weird surface-level coincidences between us - she has a very similar haircut to mine, dresses in the same kind of clothes, stands...

I have absolutely nothing interesting to talk about today. | February 7, 2001
Which actually feels weird to me, because it seems for the last two weeks I've had some very interesting things to talk about - possible threeways, group sex clubs, the death of the internet. Today, though, I'm just sitting here...

Slacker confesses: "I love the XFL!" | February 6, 2001
I'll admit it - last fall's announcement of the XFL, a new football league from the same people who brought us the World Wrestling Foundation, did not cause much of a blip on my radar. As you can probably guess,...

Manipulative or just drunk? You make the call. | February 5, 2001
I had a little experience this weekend that nicely illustrates some of the many headaches that come with being a single person in this big city of ours. I've been receiving conflicting opinions from my friends on the experience, and...

Another day, another root canal. | February 2, 2001
(Caution: today's front page can get kind of gross in places.) So, before I go any farther, let me just start off with this - my teeth are in terrible shape. Terrible like when some movie wants to make fun...

I almost asked two women to come home with me last night. | February 1, 2001
No, I mean at the same time, so we could have a threeway. Is this a terrible thing to admit? Of course this is a terrible thing to admit - they both read my goddamn website! Fuck! Someone please stop...
