Apologia

Paper. The banknotes, blast them. Old Deasy’s letter. Here. Thanking you for the hospitality tear the blank end off. Turning his back to the sun he bent over far to a table of rock and scribbled words. That’s twice I forgot to take slips from the library counter.

-James Joyce, Ulysses

I get a lot of thoughts in the morning.
I write ’em all down.
If it wasn’t for that,
I’d forget ’em in a while.

–Brian Wilson, “Busy Doin’ Nothin'”

I wanted an outlet to publish some of what I write, and I forgot that it wasn’t 2005 anymore, so I created a blog. I have some short fiction and some short- to medium-length essays in varying states of progress. I’ll post those that are (hopefully) readable and (at least vaguely) interesting upon completion. If the mood strikes me, I might also post some other snippets in hopes of being either entertaining or insightful (but never ever both at the same time, of course). Basically, think of this as a collection of scribblings that I thought were worth preserving.

Caveats: Past experience indicates I may post things very sporadically. I’d like to think that there will be a readable, literary tone throughout everything here (dig those prefatory quotes up top), but there’s also a good chance this will devolve into me writing drooling “Pere Ubu is cool” pieces.

The Internet will never have enough noise on account of the fact that as the twenty-first century progresses, more and more of our great art will either actually be or derive from transcendent Internet noise. Here goes an attempt at making noise. Enjoy.
