A connecting principle
Linked to the invisible
Logic so inflexible
Yet nothing is invincible
-Synchronicity The Police
You’re here, obviously reading this, wondering what this even is (or isn’t).
Simply it is this:
25% personal blog: pictures, quotes, listicles, etc.
45% personal journal: my life, thingies that are going on, thoughts, etc.
20% writings: my writing life
I do realize people don’t actually read shit online much, myself included. So I’ll try to write succinctly as I can, as often. Short attention span theater of the mind requires this of me. Yet I’m not here writing for multitudes of strangers, this is for me. Not out of my need or want, but for helping others as well as myself. Blame it on this quote that I like:
“It is presumptious to assume we can do anything to help another person and it’s vulgar not to try” ‑Edward Dahlberg.
So who am I and why should you read me?
I go by spike online. Yes, I don’t use my real name, go figure. I always thought Mark Zuckerberg exactly the kind of strange idiot we ostracized in the 80’s for being a nerdy little diaper stain, thus I don’t subscribe to his disturbing insistence we all use real names. Bet all the scam artists of the internet love his ass.
I’m simply a poet and a chillaxed city cat from the windy city, now recently relocated to Chapel Hill, NC, or ‘Virgin River’ (watch it on Netflix). I’m part Korean and white, 6’0 ft, quite an adonis and real prince of men, heh heh. I was formerly a Walgreens website model, a product designer for As Seen On Tv and a sketch artist, a private investigator and a personal bodyguard, believe it or not. Yet now? Just your average writer, poet, artist and something of a retro technologist.
I don’t think it’s terribly important a thing for you to know me, to admire or even like me, heck if you’ve made it this far you’re either insanely bored (quaratine fatigue) or curious, or a mixture of the two.
I’m possessed of a good sense of humor and a slightly wry soul wit, with keen reflexes and very observational perceptions (comes from extensive martial arts all throughout life). I have fire in me, in my heart of hearts and my cute soul. Comfortable being ridiculous or ridiculously profound. I can give you great advice and crank call you with someone else’s phone. I might take your photo and turn it into a wanted poster in some dark alley, as an art installation.
I must admit I’m a master of disguise and a bit of a secret agent too, a contortionist, ventriloquist and my special skill is sleight of hand. In an alternate universe a super spy and a writer of cheesy Walgreens romance novels.
So I’m here again doing this song and doing this dance, won’t you join me for the journey?
