Destroying my idols

(Click to enlarge) I don’t know what the actual fuck is wrong with the universe, but 2016 can go right along with 2014 and 2015 and fuck themselves. I haven’t had so many crap years back to back since high school. 2017 WILL BE AMAZING: I DEMAND IT BE SO. I was out of the country when Bowie returned to the stars in his spiritual space ship. I was too utterly fucked up for months to discuss Prince walking off suddenly into...

Charlotte Riots 2016

We’re having race riots here in Charlotte. Frankly, I’m surprised it hadn’t happened sooner. Last year a Black man whose car had broken down on the side of the road approached police for help. His hands were in the air, he announced himself, tried to explain his situation, and was shot dead on the spot. There’s no way that’s the first or last time something like this has happened here. Black men really...

Happy birthday, gramma

Today is the first time that I don’t need to call gramma to wish her a happy birthday and happy anniversary (she married grampa on her 20th birthday). It takes some getting used to.

Thank you, Taylor!

Sometimes it seems like the universe is really intent on being a cuntfaced bitch, ya know? I was just in DC, and a completely random internet troll singled me out for some pretty intensely hateful shit. I mean, really? What the hell? I have no idea who this person is or why I won the lotto on getting his attention. And how do these utterly shameful bullies always know exactly what to say to cut your face to the bone? HOW? How do they...

Two couplets for Gramma

Gramma will pass away soon. She’s an artist and an author, so I wrote some couplets to give her tomorrow when I visit (click the picture to enlarge it). A recurrent theme in my creative works is the seasons. I don’t know who the artist is who made this beautiful image of a tree and landscape in all phases of the year, but I thought it was inspired. If anyone knows who made the image, please let me know so I can credit...

The bell tolls…

This week my gramma, one of the most important people in my entire life, started hospice care. People go in and out of it, so it isn’t a death knell per se; however, she has always been a powerfully intellectual and creative person. She was chugging along as her body failed her (when she could no longer draw or paint, she shifted to assembling and decorating doll houses, as well as making elaborate YouTube videos focusing on her...

GSC: The Last of the Wine

For those of you who have read my blog for a while (and there’s definitely a pile of entries to get through), you may remember that my favorite book of all time is “The Last of the Wine” by Mary Renault. I have blogged about the book on a few occasions. What I have not mentioned much during my dearth of blogging is that I have been participating in a book review pod cast for an emerging LGBT media company called Gay...

Happy Birthday! “I Do”

On December 21, 2010 at 3:14 am EST I engaged myself during the first total Lunar Eclipse on a Winter Solstice since 1658. It was a very significant moment for me, and over these last 18 months I have been preparing for today: My 36th birthday. Today I will marry myself in private, but tomorrow at noon I will repeat the process in front of witnesses as part of a formalized ceremony with a spiritual guide to officiate in a sacred...

I do: The countdown…

I can’t believe how nervous and giddy I am… In 10 weeks I am going to be 36 years old, and I am going to complete a process that began years ago: I am going to marry myself. I first mentioned this on the blog in December, 2010; however, I had the idea in December, 2008. I began a process of paying down fraud debt, and in December, 2009 I selected my engagement band. I took possession of the band and made my announcement....

BIRFDAY KITTEH!!

Today was a fun day with KITTEH… He turned nine years rambunctious, and is just as energetic, silly, and playful as ever. He is also far more affectionate, which is nice, because he was entirely too rough for the first three years after I brought him home. When he was six he finally started being more loving (he was treated far too roughly as a kitten, and it took me three years of mixing play with petting to finally get him to...
