Video Rentals R Us

A have fond memories of going to the video rental store, perusing the expansive sea of films, and being indecisive for close to an hour before coming home to pop the tape in the cassette deck. At which point you had to rewind it due to uncourteous fellow consumers. Finally you could finally sit back, relax, and watch the movie on your little CRT with tinny speakers. Don't you just miss the good old days?

Banality is fascinating. Yes, that's essentially an oxymoron, but that doesn't make it any less true. The everyday is peculiar, strange, weird, absurd, crazy...you get the picture. That, coupled with my love for food (which I'm sure you've figured out by now), is the basis for this poem. In turn, the poem inspired (i.e., necessitated) a new design change for the blog: the page is 20% wider, and it's absolutely free for you!

The Life and Times of Gompers McGee

Today feels like a poetic kind of day. So out of generosity and courtesy, here's a poem for you, dear reader. Now, you're probably asking yourself, "Is this poem related to 2011's 'Mr. McGee?'" Maybe it is, or maybe I have some strange authorial predilection to the surname McGee. You (and I) may never know.

The Hoity-Toity Meet the Hoi Polloi

It's time for another epic! Well, an epic compared to the scope of most of my short stories. Read on, and learn about creatures you could never imagine. Until now.

The Apple Thief

And now for post #2 of this week! Certainly a fine way to start off April. Without further ado, a tale of biblical proportions about one important snake, published on and by North By Northwestern.

The Virtue of Silence

In honor of the baseball season starting yesterday, I'm pitching a double header this week! (Okay, that's just a random coincidence, and I apologize for the bad sports joke.) But it's the truth: two new stories are going up this week: a short poem followed by a less short story (being published by North by Northwestern). First up, poetry. Don't you just love spelling in the English language?
