How I gave up the internet forever, verily forswore it, never looked at it again

You’ll have gathered from the title that I am spared the irony of blogging how I gave up internetting by the fact that I am just as much on the drip as ever I was. I thought I was going to get to do that ironical thing, though. Four years ago I had a fight […]

Yes, the Watts Towers are that amazing

I deeply apologize to anyone who’s visited me in SoCal. I’ve failed you all by not bringing you to see the Watts Towers. I toured them today for the first time, and I vow to bring all who come out in the future. They really are the most inspired works that I’ve ever seen.
