One of These Days…

I’ve really got to update something outside of my 30pov page. But for now, here’s a link to my latest “For the Emotionally Constipated” on said site:

For the Emotionally Constipated

Read, absorb and leave a comment on the page.

BTW, it’s probably a bit more personal than I anticipated…


Whoops, slacking again…

January’s POV, “White Party, Black Tie” posted last week. It’s a little more on the personal side, celebrating my minor victories of 2010. What else can I say about the previous year? It started oddly, my career change mid-year was definitely a high point and there were a few months in there that made me ask WTF? Click here

Speaking of WTF (the Podcast that is), follow ’em on Twitter. Maybe 2011 will bring us another exciting, irreverent episode. Heaven knows I’ve got some smartassedness to get out of my system. It’ll also get me off my butt–gotta lose some of this “training” weight before I stand in front of the camera. Attention whore that I am would also give you the link to my Twitter account, but if you look to the right, my updates show up for your reading pleasure. How convenient! Like Alexa Ray Joel sings, “Notice Me” (please)!

Have you watched “The Social Network” yet? Do yourself a favor and watch it. Next on my watchlist, the new Ashton Kutcher/Natalie Portman flick:

I sure hope it doesn’t disappoint. Natalie Portman = Yum. “Black Swan,” is another great movie you need to get off your arse and plunk down money to watch.

Just finished Kristen Hersh’s “Rat Girl.” Definitely a quirky, fun read. You can find some great music on her website. It’s free to download, contributions definitely appreciated. Ms. Hersh sent me a message on Twitter that made me beam with kewlness a few weeks back. Thought I’d share that with you.

Currently reading: James Franco’s “Palo Alto.”
Currently listening: CNN on the TV.
Currently craving: a sack of White Castle burgers.

What you should be adding to your iPod right now:
Duran Duran “All You Need Is Now”
White Lies “Ritual”
Gang of Four “Content”
Social Distortion “Hard Times and Nursery Rhymes”
I Blame Coco “The Constant”

Who wants to sponsor me to get out to Coachella to see Duran Duran? It never hurts to ask right?

That’s all I got for now. Smooches.

“The Rules”

My new post is up on–the one I actually write with some frequency than this one (maybe a resolution for 2011?)! December’s topic is “Paradox.” I love leelee’s description:

“Has Nic finally accepted Evan for who he is? Or has she just decided to play along?”

Here it is! For your reading pleasure, I give you “The Rules.”

Shameless Self Promotion

So I don’t update this blog as much as I would like. But maybe if you do lurk out in this territory you’d notice my Twitter updates appear in the bottom right of the screen. And now you know.

I’ve been geeking over this:
LG Vortex = my new phone!

Yes, I got the purple variant. And yes, I downloaded the Star Map app. Lovin’ it!

December’s POV topic is “Paradox.” I just submitted my draft for review tonight. Even with a little holiday extension, I was two days tardy. What can I say, I wasn’t feeling my first take. The second one, much better! It goes live on the 13th. Watch this space…

I tweeted earlier I was a fan of Bruno Mars. Time for another confession. I listened to one CD in my car today (left the iPod at home) on repeat:
I am a Gleek.
One track in particular: Bruno Mars’ “Marry You.” I’m really liking Dianna Agron’s vocals. She isn’t as flashy a singer as Lea Michelle and I totally dig that. Don’t judge.

This is my second full week out of training with my new gig and I’m enjoying it immensely. I miss my classmates though… If you’re reading this guys & gals, CALL ME, we’ll do happy hour at 5:59:59pm.

I Still Write, Right?

My little corner of the internet is getting a bit dusty.

Hopefully my one stalker realizes I’ve been keeping busy on leelee keeps me on my toes with a monthly deadline. And wouldja believe I submitted November’s piece before due date? I think last month was the first time I had to ask for an extension. Read my October piece on the topic of “Witch Hunt”–actually, a “Which” hunt–a fluffy, lovey bit about my new job! I shared the link with my work mates and they enjoyed the read. At least somebody did! My November POV, “On My Honor,” goes live on the 13th.

I saw a status update regarding WTF the Podcast a few weeks back: “Was This Forgotten?” Sheesh, I hope not. That corner of the internet got dusty too !

2010 is nearly over and I shall begin my year end lists, starting with five concerts I thoroughly enjoyed (in no particular order):
Dashboard Confessional
The Honda Civic Tour feat. Paramore & Tegan and Sara

2010 Favourite books:
One Day
Chelsea Chelsea Bang Bang
Olivia Munn’s “Suck It, Wonder Woman”
(admittedly, I didn’t read too much this year)

Let’s see if I can keep my corner tidy before the year is up.

Confession: “Black Type” from Smash Hits (hands up if you know who I’m talking about) was one of my inspirations to write when I was still an impressionable young lad. The American version of Black was “Bold Type.” Again, borrowing ideas from the Brits. Oh the Anglophile is surfacing!
