American Monsters

The idolization of the evil murderer is a uniquely American entity. Either that, or I've just never been exposed to the monsters that live in other countries. Still, as a Canadian, I can attest to the fact that we have our own demons up here. But nobody knows about them because we refuse to let... Continue Reading →



Depressed people are keeping capitalism afloat. Sorry, that has no basis in fact. But it could be true for all anyone knows. I took a stance against that voice in my head that tries to keep me in line. I haven't the foggiest idea how it happened. Today is my kind of day after all,... Continue Reading →


It's been about a month since I left Mt. Milligan. I miss the people. A lot. I miss the routine and the food, and just the general feeling I had while there. It wasn't a great one, but it was good for me in that I'd been put in a position where I didn't tolerate... Continue Reading →

Unlike, say, two nights ago, the Ezekiel's wheel in my mind isn't rocketing through the sky quiet as fast as usual. How have I been? It's hard to say. There's... Continue Reading →

Green Jersey

I don't have a jersey but I have my words. I've wanted my words so much this last week and yet they keep failing me. Maybe it's because I feel guilty. I didn't know those people, after all. I'm not a part of the athletic community; and every time I sit down and try to... Continue Reading →

Howl’s Moving Castle

This book wasn't what I thought it was going to be. Odd, given that I've never seen the Studio Ghibli masterpiece based on it; but the tone of that movie wasn't difficult to get from the trailers I saw. In any case, one of my all-time favourite fantasy romances, Master of Crows by Grace Draven,... Continue Reading →
