this is a personal blog + journal. It exists primarily as a place for me to unleash whatever it is that I feel is worthwhile of posting up for the world to read. However, since blogging and anything of the sort is relatively passee I take some comfort and assurance most of this will be overlooked, glazed over, and generally flatly ignored by the bulk majority of peeps who pass through this way. the thoughts, opinions, writings contained herein are based on one individual, they are neither perfect nor flawed, they just are, they came from me and aren’t subject to question or challenge and weren’t designed to offend. If you’re one of the easily offended I suggest you go get some therapy for that. Life is offensive by design. however, my goal here isn’t to offend, or diss and dismiss others and make anybody feel bad by any stretch of the imagination because its always the opposite. I seek to lift people up, infuse positive vibes and always sharing in what I consider the best parts of me. life’s short and I feel there’s already a gross oversaturation of negative influencers everywhere, especially Instagram and Twitter particularly. thanks for visiting and warm welcomes !
I go by spike online (not IRL) it’s my pen name, also my alias as I am an enhanced human and need to protect people close to me from being attacked by hater super villains of course. I’m a poet from Chicago. Half Korean + white, 6’0 ft approximately, and roughly 170 lbs. you might say I’m a creative g33k, and I am. I’m a design technologist by trade, which is to say I work on macs and adobe creative cloud apps, wacom tablets, and writing code the majority of my life. the majority of my time is in reading, writing, art + design, working out and practicing jeet kune do, a minimalist mixed martial art framework devised by the late Bruce Lee. I also run my faithful canine campadre sabi quite often. not here to acrue likes, followers, or the express desire to procure your hard earned $ and to click thru my google nonsense. I’m here simply to excercise my writes. and it’s starting out for me this way…
Photo Story Life in photos. I'm not always good at maintaining these.
Selfies I'm so cute!
this is the personal journal + personal blog of a poet from the Chi.
in it, I write, minutae and ennui at times, or thought provolking observations and mostly my blazing insights into life, thingies, and 'stuff'.
please note that it's not entirely as serious or profound as I like to make it, it's really just for me, for my own edification and betterment, to write a few things down and maybe...just maybe, once in awhile some complete stranger straggles in here off of google and finds the porch lights on, invites themselves in, and partakes in the comfort of a complete strangers su casa. they even find some cookies and coffee and get reminded of the good ole days. this I won't begrudge any.
I find myself waxing nostalgic and ancedotal bits + pieces from my fractured memories map of life. people won't get it at first, they won't really know full well what it is I'm even going on about like a little madman, saying bit of this and that. I'm making art, I'm composing my fifth symphony, I'm making my Mark II Ironman suit...and having my moment of deepening clarity manifest in this here blog. Just as it says in this Depeche Mode song 'Little Soul':
Your little eyeesssss, they're going to seeeee....I can't disguise the beauty inside meeeee....
Enhanced human from the city of hot air.
I go by spike online (not IRL). Named after the character spike on Cowboy Bebop, who one of my Korean cousins tells me I resemble in some vague remote way (hardly). Only I'm not a space bountyhunter, I don't smoke, I don't have fluffy green hair, but I do practice Jeet Kune Do and I dig jazz.
I'm a voracious reader + writer, I also love design, art, painting, and cooking very much. I'm highly creative and something of a computer genius admittedly (nothing to honestly brag about).
Originally from Chicago, always been a creative intellectual, very poetic and literary minded. God is my boss, and comes first in my life.
Down to earth, energetic, positive, very real, bold, and though I'm pretty strong I'm also quite empathetic and connect with all types of peeps easily nuff. I'm perceptive and observant, insatiably curious and always testing things for weak points. I'm admittedly not as clever as I once was in maths, must be the whole aging thing. I hate anti-social media.
Every creative requires an outlet, their little niche sacred place where they can freely express the inexpressible within each and every one of us.
I don't do anti-social media, much. I'm not in the business of trying to compete with that rat race, and somehow I suspect I never shall. I deleted facebook long ago before it became a trendy campaign. Actually I'd always harkened to adbusters for hating on FB and pretty much all of social media.
This little corner of the web is my bright white mindspace and I tend to write a great deal about this or that, sometimes it coaelesces into something beautiful and relevant, or fades into that place where projects go to wither and die. Yet for me this is for me, utterly so, and it's also for any, because I freely give of myself and my writings such as they are are inlaid with life through the lenses of the looking glass.
Self reflection, introspection, observations that are the tools of conveyance for my innermost thought life + writing life.
Some write in the hope of being interesting or getting this or that reader/follower/like/love, but this isn't that. The same people are just as liable to turn against you in so much as they are prone to love you with a fake, cold, and lifeless kinda love. I'm simply a guy with things to share and say, discover, and delight in this thing we call life. Please enjoy.
