    So I guess I won't. 

    Even when I don't know what

    Hey Daggers! I thought a bit of memoir might be a nice change of pace. Yes, I made sure to post it to the Creative Corner!

    A couple years ago, I worked at a Halloween store. It was one of those corner ones that shows up for a few months and sells a bunch of junk items that should be sold in a dollar store for upward of $40.

    MUSIC: Oblique Occasions - Anathema

    Incredible music. The YouTube algorithm suggested this to me with me having never heard of it before. It's some of the best music I've heard in a long time. And that cover!

    Renegotiating Sex

    One of the more intelligent overviews of multifaceted issues around sex, including issues of obligation and the politics of desire and of course (the illusion of?) personal taste.
