I wanted to write a western, so I did. I like this story more than my first one, but I still don’t think I’m living up to my potential (boy does that ever sound stuck-up). I need to learn how to write in pieces, instead of penning a quarter of it one night and crushing out the rest in one exhausting substance-fueled all-nighter. “Bad Men” A man rode a mule into the town of...
On TAMU protests and our Freedom of Speech
(reposted from an unashamedly massive Facebook comment I wrote in response to some fevered political debate) I’m one of the biggest believers in free speech you’ll ever meet, I just think that it should be used intelligently. In the right hands, such as those of Thomas Paine, Hunter S. Thompson or even Jon Stewart (occasionally), freedom of speech becomes a fine scalpel, cutting...

THIS IS THE INTERNET
But Alec, you say, you’re not the kind of guy to post cute pictures of cats, you say. Look at these pictures. Fucking look at them. They are the greatest thing you have ever seen. Edit: Have decided to make this the first of a quasi-daily post showcasing things that serve as good representations of the internet. Enjoy.
Got my 3-Day Pass for ACL 2010 Today
Here’s a list of acts I’d like to see and reasons why I think they might be there, technically in no particular order although I usually like the ones that come to mind first better: Artists with New Albums or EPs Due in late 2009 or 2010 (including rumors): Vampire Weekend Radiohead Arcade Fire (.0001% chance of happening) Lil Wayne The White Stripes (long-shot) Animal Collective...
I had to write this story for my creative writing class. It’s the first story I’ve written in a looooong time, and in my humble opinion it’s pretty bad. Not awful, but not what I’d call good either. The ending is way too abrupt, and even with such a dangling stump of an ending I wrote way more than was required. The point of the story was to write about relationships,...
This blog will be mostly for putting up stories I write and pictures I take, but I may also use it as a dumping ground for stupid links and videos and stuff that I find on the internet. Which just means they more than likely won’t end up on your Facebook or Twitter page.
