Thrift Gold Review #1
Thrift stores are a treasure trove that many have lost touch with. Sure, I don't do a vast majority of my shopping at them--very little of it, in actuality--but there is no mistaking the wonder and even pressure involved in going there with a reason in mind.
An Experimental Review: "Jack's Back"
Hi All! In this post, I will be discussing the film "Jack's Back" as I watch it again, for what is likely the 7th or 8th time. I made some YouTube videos referencing my experience(s) watching it before, but this time around, it will be the main and complete focus of one.
An Ode To The Divide
March 12, 2022 When the opening instrumentation of Alessi's "Savin' The Day" tied my contemplations to an emotional head, it brought me to thoughts of music; of how new technologies persuaded the hearts of fresh eyes to put their all--their free spirits--into the mix. Sounds like that are indescribable. Perhaps they are what we fold back into once we leave this world once again. As I look at them, I am reminded of how precious life is. How any split second difference in decision could have prevented any of us from being here. Let alone the separate decisions that could have prevented them from knowing each other. It is horrifying. Even from a young age, I have always seen myself as larger than my form. Even now, I pride myself on feeling larger than the rest. Not as an ego trip: but as someone for each and all to look up to. The parts of songs that bring my mind to glimpse the crystallization of their power seem to involve a vision of the sky, as the string of notes at hand rise powerfully into it. Almost as a love letter from our hearts, out to the farthest reaches of the Universe and the endless beings that share this world with us. Apparently pressing t in Chrome YouTube changes the theme from a white background to black and gray (grey). Try it!
Time: The Amalgam
Entry 5: I Am About To Rest...The Time Is 5AM I had been walking for days, resting at erratic points along the way. Under the shelter of any nearby ruin I had contained myself, concealing my features and supplies with nerve-wracking review. I had a close call a few days ago, and since then my efforts have been forced to adopt a painstaking delicacy.
Random Tidbits, Volume 1
For my future son, Tozier. Ever since I first picked up Stephen King's novel IT, it has had a special place in my, albeit limited, reading collection. Although I may be sacrificing the truth in some ways, I think that if I was any character from that lore, it would be Richie. I have always liked his name. As a matter of fact, my paternal grandfather's name was Richard. I never met him, and the name is so common that coincidence is all it is, surely, but I feel called to say something about it, regardless.
The Girls I [Used] To [Love]
Outside of the need for procreation as a means to keep our species living onward (I've gleaned that is more or less the technical reality of it), our lives have not been acclimated to such. Instead, we are caught up in the romance of things--however that may be relevant, existentially.
