You Don't Know The Struggle: We're All In Carcosa Now

So this week was my birthday, so of course that means I gained weight due to copious alcohol intake, as well as delightful sweet treats. This wasn't particularly unexpected, however; I gained four pounds, which is the equivalent of a sizable bowel movement, so I'm not super concerned about it. I promised I'd be candid… » 3/10/14 1:37pm 3/10/14 1:37pm

You Don't Know The Struggle: Side Effects May Include Nausea

The strangest side effect of beginning this diet has easily been the lucid dreams. I've had the recurring dream about Allison Williams from Girls hitting on me while my girlfriend prepares snacks for us and I ignore her advances by asking whether or not she'll be in the new Fantastic Four movie (she is not). I also… » 2/28/14 12:46pm 2/28/14 12:46pm

You Don't Know The Struggle: WHAT YOU CRAVE

Jobs, Not Steve

So, like every twentysomething (soon to be thirtysomething), I'm always on the lookout for something new and exciting in terms of career. I'm currently employed in the field that I want to work in, for a trade publication, however; I'm hourly and not salaried, with no benefits. While I have no complaints regarding my… » 1/08/14 10:28pm 1/08/14 10:28pm

Underappreciated Superhero Movie Month - Dick Tracy

There are a lot of superhero flicks out there. Some might say too many. I say not enough, however; there are plenty of superhero flicks that go either unnoticed or unloved. I plan on dedicating the month of January to re-watching and shedding some light on superhero flicks that have either been largely forgotten,… » 1/05/14 3:50pm 1/05/14 3:50pm
