A very enjoyable week. | May 31, 2001
Hi, everyone - sorry you haven't heard from me in awhile. I thought, instead of continuing to post the rather mean front pages I have been recently, I'd take a week off from my journal altogether and wait to get...

Off to St. Louis. | May 23, 2001
So, my parents have invited me to come down and visit for a couple of days in St. Louis, and I've decided to take them up on their offer. It'll be good for me - a little bit of time...

What it's like to be by yourself. | May 22, 2001
As regular readers know, yesterday I entered my second week of voluntary unemployment. Well, actually, it's a little more complicated than that - I'm actually doing some freelance jobs right now, writing and web design and print design, so I...

These are the times that try men's souls. | May 21, 2001
So, my weekend just got better and better after the spectacular debacles of last week. Most of the weekend I spent in a Vicodin haze, dealing with the pain of an abscessed tooth and the side effect of nausea this...

The nail in the coffin. | May 18, 2001
So how did I do at the Chicago-Wam Bam Poetry Slam finals last night? I took tenth. Out of eleven. Yeah, that's right, I got beat by virtually every single other person in the tournament except Kelly Tsai, and I...

Tension mounting... | May 17, 2001
So all this week, no matter where I've gone, all anyone can talk about is the Chicago-Wam Bam Poetry Slam finals, which are tonight. It's funny how a single event still has the power to galvanize an entire artistic community,...

A change in plans. | May 14, 2001
So, once my friends rightly chastized me last week for being the most bitter motherfucker on the face of the earth, they then started clearing a couple of things up for me in regards to my finances and my recent...

Drinking beer and uploading porn. | May 10, 2001
So as some of you already know, I run a free adult website called "Porn For Nerds" which you can find elsewhere on the web. Some of you also know that I haven't been able to update the site for...

Nanette, Taylor, and why the poetry scene really stinks sometimes. | May 9, 2001
(WARNING: Angry emails regarding today's front page will be neither read nor responded to.) So, I hung out with a woman named Nanette this last Monday. Nanette is another one of my readers, a 26-year-old indie-rock aficionado who runs her...

The Temp Blues strike again. | May 8, 2001
Okay, I'll admit it - the folks at International Truck and Engine Company, where I've been temping for the last month, have fuckin' broken me. I mean it, man - I'm like a new chickenhawk in prison who's been gang-raped...

A little taste o' Europe. | May 7, 2001
So I had a pretty interesting couple of days this weekend. Drunken, yes, and rambling, and much of it over my head...but interesting, nonetheless. It all started when we had to cancel the "Shared Words/Shared Inquiry" show that was supposed...

A little Hope and Faith never hurt anyone. | May 3, 2001
So, I ran into *Hope and *Faith last night at Joyblue. I know! We haven't heard from them in awhile, have we? For those who don't know, Hope and Faith are these two girls I know from the "Yammer" open...

Transitions, transitions. | May 2, 2001
Life is funny sometimes, isn't it? One minute your life is clicking smoothly along in the exact direction you were expecting it to. Then the next minute, boom, you suddenly find your life turned around 180 degrees from where it...

Now that's porn! | May 1, 2001
Sorry I haven't updated the site in the last couple of days - there's some personal shit going down in my life right now that's not appropriate for me to talk about here - unfortunately, I've been a little obsessed...
