So I’ve run across a spell of good luck since yesterday morning. I found a place to stay until I leave and this place happens to belong to an editor for a publishing house (ie she let me go on about my novel for ages and had some interesting input) AND she makes a mean Manhattan(1).
I met my host at my favourite dive bar, The Heavy Anchor(2), which had a clothing swap a few weeks ago and Jodi (one of the owners of The Anchor) offered me to look through the left over clothes which ended up being a real blessing because I got to upgrade some of my rags and obtain some much needed accessories such as a scarf, blanket, and sleeping pants (women’s sleeping pants but they’re warm and comfortable none the less).
Overall morale boosted from 4.5/10 to 8/10.
Watch the full video log here:
I finished Notes of a Dirty Old Man yesterday and plan to write something about it this week. Now that I have a quite place to work, I may even get some drawing done too. Interview transcript with Osiris Green from Wreck the System will come next.
My favourite cocktail which consists of 2 parts whiskey, 1 part sweet vermouth, a dash of bitters, a maraschino cherry, and orange zest. I have no idea what recipe she used, but it was very fine.
The Heavy Anchor is a south city bar in st louis. If you’re ever in the area, stop in and say “hi” to Jodi or Josh for me.
Heya folks, my life has always been somewhat interesting but things have gotten rather intense recently leaving me in a situation without a house (I struggle with the concept of “home” but I do know it’s not as simple as “the place where you have a roof over your head” however that’s what I’m currently with out, ie I’m “house-less” but as I am facing the very likely possibility that I’ll be sleeping rough in my own home town this next week, I feel like I am quickly approaching “home-less” as well). This will very much affect my ability to post with any regularity, as if it wasn’t already spotty since I got back from the UK…
Anyway, I am starting a video log series on youtube which I have yet to come up with a good title for where I will be posting a 5-10 minute long video as often as I can talking about what I’m working on, where I am, what I’m reading, and whatever else I feel like talking about.
This first track rocks. Twill.Distilled represents the women of nerdcore in her lyrics. Check out these lyrics:
Alex Trebek, you aint polite, I thought you were from canada
after that im just like, bro, whats the matter with ya
lets take a look at your show and your key demographic
biting the hand the feeds you, thats just simply tragic
Wanna talk about losers, lets focus on you
The rhetoric of nerds is overplayed you know it’s true
slinging out insults like loser on a show of intelligence
your diligence of dreadfulness like a benighted emulous
I don’t know whats more tragic, your career or your fitness
A foreshadow of kardashian, Lucinda Moyers is the witness
not one but two heart attacks I think the universe is callin
time for you to tap out while nerdcore keeps on ballin
Callin our home girl and all ofus losers
bruh are you serious, just take a look at her
maybe you’re just getting old, or you got glaucoma
but your presence on this nerd scene is nothing but an adenoma
