Major Antithesis Update: The Long Road Back

This post is also on the podcast feed as an audio file. It’s pretty sweet. Give it a listen 🙂 Download Subscribe Hello! It’s been a while. The world is changing, and so is the status quo here at AWP, and that means that there’s news on the Antithesis...

Still Dreaming

This morning, I woke up to snow and everything that comes with it: Icy roads, changing plans, deep-bone aches from the cold…  and wonder. When you don’t grow up in the stuff, it doesn’t matter how many times the snow ruins your day, it’s still magical. So, after running...

Blogging Kabrakan/Antithesis, Day 431-433

Hello and greetings and updates from the road! Growing up in the San Francisco area, I learned to hate humidity. Going to the east coast or the south or the midwest meant growing a set of gills. How things change! After two years on the Oregon coast, now that...

Time To Hold Your Nerve

For the last few years (with the exception of one I missed, IIRC), I’ve been writing New Years posts that have explicitly pushed back against the grouchy gloom and pessimism that seems to obtain everywhere, left right and center. Why would I do this? First, because it’s true. The...

Blogging Kabrakan/Antithesis, Day 248

Last night, I got no writing done. There was a really long business meeting with the other writers and publishers in town (and several who came in from out of town) to confab about some new developments in the industry. Loads of fun, very intense, got to see some...

My Super-Secret Decoder Ring Tribute

I have been a fan of Gregg Taylor and his thrilling throng of thespians over at Decoder Ring Theater since before he even had a proper website. Way way back in the dark times of the early aughts, when he released what’s now called the Red Panda Original Universe...

These Words Don’t Hurt

I posted the other day about writing through a nasty injury to my hand, and how every word hurt to type, but not as much as it hurt to not write. Well, that state of affairs didn’t last long. After a day of solid work, the bruised, abused, and...

HyperDognomics

This is the final post in a series about how my recent search for the perfect pup perpetuted an intellectual penetration into the hidden and varied economics of the marketplace for dogs and puppies in the different regions of the west coast. If you’re joining this series in progress,...
