Friday Night Lights (Out): Jumped by an Asian Gang

If there is one thing you should know about me, it’s that I grew up on the streets. No, not the streets of Compton or the Bronx, I’m talking about the streets of a city so dangerous that even Six Flags had to remove itself from the area; Denver. Yes, I lived the tough Colorado … Continue reading

To the Unnamed Soldier

Go die for me. Go die for me to put me at ease. If you don’t die, consider yourself dead. It’s the only way to cope with my goal. When you return, if you return, don’t expect a grand welcome. You did your job, my job. Be thankful that we gave you that. Now be … Continue reading

Chicken & Waffle Showdown: Gladys Knight’s (ATL) vs. Roscoe’s (LA)

I’ve already traveled the length of the United States just to eat a burger; this time I was motivated by a different type of food. The origin of Chicken & Waffles as a food pairing is somewhat unknown. We know Thomas Jefferson is credited with bringing back a waffle iron from France in 1790 (clearly his greatest accomplishment) but … Continue reading

The Ultimate Search

A simple touch, a devious look, a subtle smile. Hair flowing like beams of golden light, forcefully destroying darkness and fear. Mysterious, intriguing, exhilarating. The rest of the world melts away as the tunnel focuses on the inviting eyes that reach deep into the heart, daring it to ignore logic and let impulse guide it … Continue reading

Guestblog Challenge: Coming Soon to a State Fair Near You!

Alright everyone, you all already know how I feel about crazy food: it’s better when it’s fried. Some of my favorite food moments of the year came from last year’s LA County fair where I was lucky enough to sample chocolate covered bacon, fried oreo’s, fried pb&j, a fried klondike bar, and, my all-time personal … Continue reading

Word Vomit: Humor Shorts

I feel like shit. I don’t want to think, the internet is down and there’s no work so here I am, pouring my boredom all over this page. I’m not sure what to write about, like I said I don’t want to think, so I’m just going to write whatever comes to my head. Not sure … Continue reading

Raw

I have done this many times before, so much so that you would think the routine would have become mundane by now, but every time is different. Different times, different people, different places, few similarities. As I stood at the doorway I reveled in the beauty of this place. The lush green forestry was almost … Continue reading

Stadium Snackadium and the Future of the National Foodball League

Yes it’s that time of year again. The incessant squabbling, the unprecendented media coverage of everything but nothing at the same time, the frustration of two sides unable to reach a mutually beneficially solution boiling over to the American people like an unstoppable volcano heading for a petting zoo filled with llama-riding babies. So much … Continue reading

A Letter to Colbert: the Best Prop Ever, Seriously. No, Seriously.

Dear Stephen, I have noticed that your Peabody and one of your Emmys sit alone on a mantel on the set in which you allow members of the general public to reflect upon your greatness, comforted only by a fake fire, an empty red drape, an hourglass showing that Herman Cain’s time has ran out, and what … Continue reading

Kinds of Our Time

Wandering souls on a moving landscape of expectation juxtaposed against a sea of self entitlement and disbelief; held accounted for by the unicorned armies that slave tirelessly in the name of an ideal of their own creation stopping only to notice the flaws of others; building fruitless waves of anger and depression; self medicated and … Continue reading
