What Am I Doing Here?
Honest Conversation Is Overrated is where the original Insafemode Journal posts (awkward memoirs about love, sex, and family...rarely all three in the same post) are stored, as well as the archive from the Honest Conversation Is Overrated Tumblr. Most of the recent posts are about the trials and tribulations of working retail, and watching others work retail.
Interactionality is a project where I'm reading five collections of poetry a week, and writing some form of interaction with them. Maybe a poem in the voice of a character from the collection, maybe a rant about the author's use of formatting, maybe a bar graph about the overuse of the word "ribcage". I've invited fifty other authors to participate with me, and maybe posting some of their work on this page as well.
Tips From The Bar is a collection of weekly prompts given at The Cantab Lounge where I tend bar during the weekly poetry slams. It is mirrored at The Boston Poetry Slam website but I go into much more detail on this site.
Comically Obsessed is a journey through my vast graphic novel selection, title by title. Currently, it's focused on suggesting chronologies for how to read certain comic book series as i they were TV shows.
