While it wasn’t a secret one month ago, I didn’t want to tell everyone until some time went by. The reason is pretty simple. The moment you say, “I tested positive for COVID” nothing else you say after matters. You can say you’re fine. You can say you’re okay. They won’t read it. They will only read you got COVID.Read More
I have never felt more mentally exhausted in my life.
Starting this on January 1st, the 365th day of the year, and all I feel is worn down trying to reflect on 2020. Some of that is the rum I had last night, but that’s more my body feeling like the bean bag chair in a college dorm that not once has anyone ever considered cleaning. Okay not that gross.

I don’t want to write about pro wrestling.
It’s not that I don’t have ideas. I have plenty! I could probably write for a website again weekly about pro wrestling should I choose to.

Earlier this week, Kate Spade passed away after committing suicide. I did not know who Kate Spade was, and many people looked at me funny when I said I did not know who she was.
Today, it has come out that Anthony Bourdain also committed suicide. Bourdain is a favourite of mine and means to me the same way the people who looked at me funny when I said I didn’t know who Spade was. This isn’t a competition. It’s more a reflection of the different ways celebrity and icon can mean to different people.Read More
I feel like I need to make a note about racism and responsibility that’s too long for a Facebook status update or a bunch of tweets. And if I make a sweeping statement (I will make a few), do not return how this doesn’t apply to you. If it doesn’t, you know it. You don’t have to announce it.Read More
