Giving up the drink or: why I had to give up on booze


I have written about my relationship with addiction in the past, but that was about pills and not the drink. I really—really—love booze.

Rest well, Shaman King: On Robin Williams


I don’t have much to offer about the passing and legacy of Robin Williams outside of what has already been written, Tweeted, shared via status updates, exchanged at kitchen tables, or conveyed in shocked text exchanges.

Road trip albums and other audio miscellany

“I know, honey. You’re a ride or die bitch.” — My wife while driving the two of us to Eastport for a week of sun-soaked vacation I am in Eastport for vacation and before I headed up here I asked the Internet what albums make for perfect road trip fodder. I am glad that I […]
