Uninspired work is the worst kind

6 Comments 20 August 2012

Today I am to announce who won the “Everyone Loves Austin” t-shirt giveaway. I will do that later. Right now I don’t feel like writing at all. Not even that sentence. In fact, these past 8 days have proven difficult in writing emails let alone blog posts. Sometimes I don’t even finish sentences while talking. [...]

Writing Makes You Weird

7 Comments 05 October 2011

Ever since I’ve started writing semi-regularly, I feel like I’ve gotten super weird. Like I’ve lost all ability to socialize with other human beings and I just find myself standing crosseyed and painless in the world- as David Byrne would say.

15 Comments 22 August 2011

source Some days you have it and some days you don’t. It’s a total mystery as to the why either one happens. As a friend pointed out when we had a discussion about this over the weekend, Steve Martin once said something along the lines of, “Forcing creativity is like trying to force a shit. [...]

I Like Lists! Except When They Suck Ass.

15 Comments 26 July 2011

I peruse the Internet like a mo-fo and because of this I’m only able to enjoy rudimentary things like lists. I especially like self-help/how-to lists- the sort that give you tips on how to become a better blogger or lover or lover to your blogger (we need a lot of attention). If there is anything [...]
