I’ve only ever received one valentine card. It was from a girl named Claire in 1996. I think. The 90’s have (thankfully) kind of blurred together. I had harbored my typical brand of unspoken obsession for Claire and, I suppose, she must have felt a mutual sort of attraction. Enough to earn me my one […]


Right before the Powers That Be shut down sites like Oink, I was turned onto the magic of TV-Links, which gathered all of the streaming video shit or whatever.  Secret techno things happened that produced moving pictures on my computational device’s viewing screen!  I immediately set out to watch things that have been withheld from […]

Slave to Love

Thanks to the magic of the internet, I’ve recently had the opportunity to download Slave to Love, a porn flick from 1993 starring Sierra and Brittany O’Connell.  Amidst the sea of one off scenes online, it’s always a thrill to find a full-on movie from my youth lying around.  I actually spent money on Slave […]

Blame it on the rain

In an attempt to help pass the time, and avoid training myself to tolerate the pain required to push needles through the web of my thumb, I decided to measure my average daily caffeine intake. Turns out, I’m sucking down over 500 milligrams. 32 ounces of coffee in the morning, pot of tea (three cups) […]


When I was a kid, I wanted to be a long distance truck driver. Except without responsibility, city driving, or timelines. I wasn’t against the idea of hauling cargo across the country, I just wanted to pick it up at lonely country depots and leisurely make my way to the drop off point at an […]

Dream Diary

Last night I dreamed that I was at the mall and there was this huge crowd of folks and, naturally, I went to investigate.  Maybe someone had died or something, which is always good for a laugh. 

Three Beers Later…

The biggest problem I have with updating Greatsociety is that I’m functionally illiterate. I wasn’t always this way, but I think college did something to the parts of my brain dedicated to all of the civilized niceties – like learning from my mistakes and comprehending basic thoughts. Take today’s post, where I suffered from a […]

Friday in America

Kucinich is out of the race. I was never a supporter, but I will miss his wife. I think every presidential candidate needs an Amazonian redhead lurking around in the shadows. Which leads to a joke about Hillary’s wife, I’m sure, but I’m here at work in the AM locked in combat with a sinus […]

Wing Ding

Every year since 2000, with an exception in 2006, I’ve found myself reading upwards of 300 manuscripts for a writing awards program. This year, I read 327. My job is an easy one – weed out the obvious shit from the obvious good stuff. Then I pass the good stuff on to a couple of […]


I have a recurring nightmare that does not involve getting a colonoscopy.  If it did, it would make much more sense.  Instead, my nightmare is a very basic, very unsurprising anxiety dream.  So mundane, in fact, that I hesitate to call it a nightmare.  It doesn’t wake me up, it doesn’t leave me unsettled.  It’s […]
