Hey Google+.
Hope you've been having a really great Friday.
It's been awhile since I've worked on any of my fiction writing. 
Think I finally finished this piece enough to let the nice folks at Loser City publish it.
It may be about Goats.
Because loneliness had walked over him like like a toddler taking his first steps and solitude was a thud, hollow in his ears, Stephen spent days with the movements of goats, painstakingly imitatin...

This comic put me smack dab in the middle of the crossroads where intention and ability intersect and made me challenge some of my more stable assumptions.
 
For this week's Digital Ash column, the digital comic RoboChuck spurs +Daniel Elkin to question so many of my previously held assumptions about himself as a reader, a teacher, a critic, and … yea, we'll go there … a man.

My buddy +Keith Silva has a new piece up on +Psycho Drive-In that you have to read to believe. I haven't seen a single episode of True Detective but after reading this, I'm going full ham on it. #truedetective  +True Detective Fan Channel +True Detective Best Scenes

Oow   Friends say it's fine,  friends say it's good  Ev'rybody says it's just like Robin Hood  I move like a cat,  charge like a ram  like a bee, babe  I wanna be your man  Well it's plain to see you were meant for me...

I had the pleasure of being able to review BLACK IS THE COLOR by Julia Gfrörer (published by +Fantagraphics Books Inc.).
"Appreciating mystery, embracing wonderment, living in a liminal space – none of this matters in a world carpeted with banality or in a life whose only future is death. Gfrörer is harsh in her assessments, and yet Black is the Color is still a work of beauty, an artistic statement whose aesthetic eclipses its dark heart and blunt nihilism."
