Thank you Motorola and Google and Verizon
for saving me from getting an iPhone. That would have been like rooting for the Yankees. Which is something I’ll never do.
Oh he hopped out.
Lots of new (shortish) content at http://holwerdaeveryday.tumblr.com - I’m bulking up my end-of year collection by about a hundred pages.
Just watched Duncan Jones’ Moon starring Sam Rockwell. Whoa. Easily my favorite movie of the year.

You’re both very pretty.
Some (Biggish) News
I’ve been fairly tight-lipped on this topic recently, and it’s because I wanted to make sure I told people first before mass-announcing. The Change Companies, a publisher in Carson City, Nevada, offered me a position with them as a writer/designer this week. They flew me out for an interview, and so I spent parts of Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday interacting with them. I’m...
I get it. Not really a predicament.
iPhone it is.
I’m in the market for a new phone. It’s either going to be an iPhone or a Palm Pre. What I want to know is - well, which one is better for what I’m going to be using it? Right now it’s like the decision I went through at age 12 - do I buy a Playstation, because it’s been around and has a lot more games, or do I get an N64 because the hardware has more capabilities?...
I went to go see Where the Wild Things Are today at 1:45 at my local theater. I’m not a WTWTA fanboy, and though my mom tells me I loved the book, when I was growing up I remember appreciating the story for what it was and not much more. When I was a kid, I didn’t relate to rebelliousness. I wasn’t starved for attention. The character of Max wasn’t really my kind of...
I'd pretty much have to agree. What I would like...

I think I do an okay job of fixing myself up. Maybe.
Season 7 of Curb is genius so far. Also, I’m enjoying Bored to Death, which stars Jason Schwartzman in a role he’s actually fit for. He plays the writer Jonathan Ames, who lists himself as a private detective on Craig’s List. Well-written and smart. Also, Zach Galifianakis is amazing as Schwartzman’s neurotic best friend. Sort of the Jeff to Larry’s character on...
Correcting expectations and grammar since Rome.
saraahrns: This information is likely to change. This is my 6 word autobiography. I think it does a pretty good job of explaining myself. I’ve heard some pretty good ones from others, would love to hear some more. Explain yourself in 6 words exactly. hoorah! Here’s one. Mine sucks. I will continue until I have found the perfect six words.
Book Title Marathon Mismatching Tempest. Face.
Long drive, no music. Should have bought headphones at CVS. Where are your last headphones? Left them in Michigan. What good are they doing you there? Quiet down, we don’t have any. No music. That’s okay, silence breeds creativity. Rush Limbaugh, get your voice out of my head. Stop with the trying to find music, we’re in Mississippi and this is not the place for your kind of jam....
Passing over Chunky River in Mississippi. Whatever you do, don’t drink the chunky water.

So while she kept quiet and didn’t move, it would matter little. She and Blood would never make it to Roll, and the war would be lost.
So. I like this. There are no comments on the Vimeo page, and I think that should change. Let’s do it.
I went on to describe what I call “Dimensional Plagiarism.” Here is the premise:...– Gordon Brick, a writer I imagined.

It could bend back and forward, and my whole hand started doing that. Then somehow I discovered a new way to type, in which a certain hand position and location would make a certain letter - I just had to learn which was which. Also, Optimus Prime crash-landed into the movie theater where I was trying to watch some movie. I hope it wasn’t Transformers 2, because I’d be ashamed if even...
