In Anchorage, it’s really spring. All the snow is gone, and the air smells like dirt.

I know it’s close to … Continue reading Anchorage
Today we ate a late lunch of re-heated pinto beans and set out, sleds in tow, to move spruce rounds from the edge of the oil road. There are two sleds, both black plastic, one large, one smaller.

I haven’t seen Jade in a long time. He’s cut all his hair off. It’s short now and parted severely, flattened with beeswax and curled a bit on his forehead. It looks amazing, like a femme-y 1920s gay man on a date. I immediately want the same hair. As the day wears on, I just … Continue reading The Gut-Bone’s Connected to the Mood-Bone

If you saw me today and said, a little sheepishly, "Hey, I read your blog!" then you are now required to … Continue reading No Comment?
No, Seriously. Ever since reading this article in the March issue of The Ecologist, I can't stop thinking about electromagnetic radiation and how it effects us. It's a terrifying and fascinating subject to ponder, because not only is this technology very new and fairly un-regulated, but it's becoming so widespread that it's almost impossible to … Continue reading WiFi Is Bad For You
Obama said today that we should open more of the "oil reserves" in Alaska, as a way to reduce dependence on foreign oil!They want to do more drilling on the north slope, which is the most pristine part of one of the most pristine places on earth, and also the place where about a zillion … Continue reading OBAMA WHY?!

---------To the tune of “come sail away”, by Styx.I’m smashing computers. Smashing laptops, with an iron crowbar. Or a baseball bat. I’m running through a building filled with laptops, smashing in their faces with my big blunt thing, pure raw energy coming out of my body, bored muscles finally awakening from the longest sleep this … Continue reading Fantasy
