february is not looking so good

in terms of posting.
maybe i'll surprise myself?



i do have high hopes for shooting in the coming months though. there's definitely not as much out there as there used to be, but there's still a few places. we just have to work a little harder,
that's all.

i woke up at 12:30 AM the other night

i bought a shirt on amazon
from my phone
in bed

i forgot about it

there was a box on my back porch today
it was my shirt

it fits pretty nicely...



so i have that going for me.

sometimes

when i'm walking around my house
i think about when i'm going to die
where will it be
when
will it be?
in the garage
the kitchen
will i die trying to get down the stairs
trying to shovel the side walk
where will my wife find me
cold
dead
lifeless
i'm not afraid of death
or dying
i'm more concerned with suffering
with pain
with my wife growing old and no one there to help her
to love her
i'm not afraid of death
i'm more concerned with cancer
the slow kind
the painful kind
i think about my future dogs
running out of food
in their bowls
while they sit next to my lifeless body
protecting
waiting
waiting for the neighbors to ring the bell
for the police to beat down the door
i think about this when i'm putting towels in the linen closet
that would be as good a place as any
for the big one to hit me
i'm not afraid of death
i'm more concerned with my wife
trying to wake me
i'm concerned with growing too old
too slow
for too long
i think about running out of money
out of love
patience
i think about all the people around me dying
outliving them
maybe i'll die while changing the filter on my furnace
a
that's as good a place as any?



here i am again

sitting in the same chair
7:something PM

fuck.

the grand army of the republic.



whatever.

in an attempt to not be completely forgotten
i'm making a post.
albeit, only a handful of loyal readers

so here's a photo that i edited awhile back but never posted,
yup...

it's january in detroit

cold
dark
and shitty
yeah.
anyway,
here's a new post for my many readers to enjoy.
the lobby of the michigan bell building.
we were really surprised to see how drab the interior was.
we were also surprised to see the lights on.
so,
enjoy my new post
because i don't see too many more coming down the pipeline.
i'm bored
depressed
and tired.
i'm also irrelevant.
because i'm not on facebook.



fuck you, and your facebook page!

once again

i am completely bored
with all of this
the internet
this blog
the posting...

(i deleted a bunch of stupid shit that i can't believe i ever posted)

so
i guess this is one more day
one more day closer
to the truth
closer
to the end
to a new beginning



the end is the beginning is the end...

here's another old photo from the madison lenox hotel

a chair with carpeting on the seat
how retro...?



years a go
i knew a guy
we'll call him bill
bill was an odd man
he and i weren't exactly friends
we just happened to know each other for a short time.
anyway
bill got drunk one night
and went to a massage parlor
30 minutes later, he left angrily
because the girl refused to give him a happy ending
the night went on
bill continued to drink...
after the massage parlor closed
bill went back
bill broke in
bill stole- their televison
bill
took a shit on their rug.

now,
we're not talking about the HD flat screens of today that can be lifted with a finger.
no!
we're talking about the big ass floor model zeniths of the 80's...
and
this wasn't just any rug
this was the rug in the main lobby area,
the kind that really ties a room together!

so...
think about that

because i do...

2012

it's hard to imagine that i'll have to do this 224 more times, to eclipse 2011... i suppose i will have to concentrate on the quality, instead of the quantity, because i highly doubt that i have 200+ posts in me?...
but, in an attempt to stay positive

i'll try!
i have the content,
it's a question of...?
