Something Inexpressible

A con­nect­ing principle
Linked to the invisible
Almost imperceptible
Some­thing inexpressible
Sci­ence insusceptible
Log­ic so inflexible
Causal­ly connectible
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?

This is simply my bright white mindspace online, written in a way that's easily digestible. Let's face it people have short attention spans these days, I get it.


because thought lives matter (and so do writing lives for that matter).

Welcome to my humble dojang on the web (Korean word for 'dojo').

This is for all intents & purposes:

30% personal blog: similar to a journal, but less personal. Sharing is caring! A bit of this and that, interesting bits I've discovered. This is

Self Portrait

I'm a guy you might just scarcely notice, on the street or in some wayward indy cafe. Or I might just be invisible, the kind of invisible that's tragically beautiful. However I'm to be interpreted/misinterpreted doesn't matter, people do it all the time.

I've been accused of being rather sexy, and sometimes cute. That's because I'm an ex Walgreens website model. I suppose I have that Walgreens look nailed. It's always important to be semi-attractive when you're an international super spy, enhanced human, and then there's me being a humble poet from sweet and sour home Chicago too. Most poets tend to be ugly that's why some of us intentionally wear masks, or menstruate on Instagram 'just because'. My mortal enemies are millenial snowflake instapoets btw in case I was being in danger of being way too subtle.


Down to earth, minimalistic, creative, intellectual, funky, funny, weird in a unique way, observant and goofy for a serious kinda bloke. A propensity for investigations, mysteries, survivalist hacks, and petty larceny against criminals. Even though I'm extremely agile I tend to be randomly clumsy at times (especially when hilarity ensues as a result of it). Like all Kdrama male leads, I can be quite theatrical and dramatic for no apparent reason just for kicks.
