Memories of Push
In 2002, there was a short-lived mystery television show about an IRS agent who travels to Push, Nevada to find out about a strange mishandling of tax money by a casino. It ran for seven episodes before it was cancelled. I watched it. There was a mystery that the viewer could solve, because in every episode there would be a clue or two. If you solved the mystery first, you won $1,045,000. I was...
Procured (awesome word) a desk, going to the zoo, heading to a party. Yes Man has already made my life better. Haven’t met Zooey Deschanel.

Sitting behind home plate at the tigers rockies game
I don’t know what to say, or what I was expecting when I watched the pilot episode of Glee on Hulu. What I got was a big taste of something awesome. I was seriously smiling the whole time, and I think I almost cried during the final scene. Almost. Why do we have to wait until the Fall for this show again?

The song and the video. Both awesome.
I’d like to apologize to Artifice Mag for my last post, in which I promised them a submission. I even told them that I was “working on it.” This is not true. I don’t even have an idea for a submission, and to say that I was working on one would be fallacious at best. I hoped that by broadcasting my intentions my brain would break into song and my fingers would tap out some...
Dear Artifice Mag.
I’m going to send you something. Working on it now. Get ready.

My arm has been asleep for the past three hours. Either I’m having a heart attack or it’s trying to get the rest of my body to follow it.
I know you’re not a real thing, and writing a letter to you is like writing a letter to Tyler Durden, but I want to tell you some things about myself. First, I have 30 followers. Maybe ten of these followers actually read my blog. The rest have been inactive for more than three months. You should know this about me. Second, I graduated high school in 2005, and I’m graduating from MSU...

When you embed your images in text posts, I have to go to your Tumblr to see what they are, because they don’t show up on my dashboard like an image post would. This is probably your plan. Touché.
