feel like film reached its most beautiful moment in 'sudden death' with that shot of van damme pressing his face and hands up against the glass at the hockey rink, breathing that steam and screaming 'noooooooooooooo' right before the bomb is supposed to go off, but like, no one around him knows what's going on because they're all cheering.

person recently referred to an amount of my exposed chesthair as 'taco meat.'

one of the only types of narrators i can't ever enjoy or understand or whatever is the 'jaded rich person who's just so darn jaded'

afterlife of lying down in a field and letting a pack of dogs eat you then feeling yourself pass through each of their bodies and reforming from the shit as yourself at the birth of your former life, with no memory of it.
randomly checked the stat thing for this blog and one search that lead here was 'best young butthole in the world.'  consider your search over
that terrible tense feeling in almost every situation that other people are being insane and you're losing your mind because you don't understand how many steps back you have to take to explain why that person is insane but you want to like cancel them out in some absolute way, like completely ruin them and erase them from even your own memory but it all hurts and you truly don't fear dying because even though yeah you probably don't understand dying you definitely know it won't be the same as all the shit you deal with living so why not
weird how many people are impolite and disrespectful without provocation
i'm at this artist residence currently where it's like jail but i live alone and there aren't any guards and i still have to go to work and i still have to pay rent and there aren't any meals provided and there aren't any other artists and i don't have to write i mostly draw instead of write because the headaches from the heat make it hard to focus.

love for my people doing anything they can to avoid feeling like themselves for any period of time.

even more love for my people doing whatever it takes to always feel like themselves.
full speed crash and burn and blow away as a feeling of peace versus calm thought-out pacing and survival while feeling like you're going full speed at a brickwall to crash and burn and blow away.

kind of weird how much shit is aimed at increasing peoples' egos while secretly reminding them they aren't shit so they create a person who is willing to defend something s/he doesn't even necessarily like or support or understand.
afterlife that is slightly longer than your bodily life where you watch a movie (with voiceover) of your bodily life and how it should've went (according to some ultimate 'should' that you can't argue with) and you just sit there watching it, slowly crying--not like an active sobbing but just making no face and not blinking as tears come out of your eyes--and then when it's over you are fully dead and have no more interaction with any world (physical/spiritual/whatever) again and you don't know anybody and nobody knows you.  
kind of weird that the idea of anything you do being pointless (and selfish), including continuing to live at all, isn't more widely acknowledged and communicated on a daily basis (in a nondramatic/non-pessimistic/logical way [sort of like, 'hey, did you know!') to people both young and old.
two kinds of relationships:

1. none/complete indifference

and

2. total/all-consuming
recent urges to grab whatever object is nearest and try to press it into my face
pierced by a thousand fishhooks and laying in the sun as ten people piss on you
recommend cutting more and more things out of your life that way any small luxury feels really good.
the clever ways people find of turning your healthy anger/opposing feelings/confrontational personality into something wrong
movie called 'he's got the beat' where a character deals with stress/alienation/depression by going home and emotionally air drumming to songs.
if you ever get mentioned in Newcity's 50 People Who Matter in Lit then take a shit on the ground and shoot  yourself in the face so you land facedown in the shit.
that shit where sometimes you only think of yourself/for yourself and sometimes you think of yourself as someone else, an outsider to be treated coldly and clinically
recommend 'lonely lyle' by 'big business.'
recommend not owning/holding onto anything you've written/made
that shit where you realize you're only ever really comfortable/natural when greeting/meeting a dog and not ever a human
if you want to read a story cut from 'witch piss' called 'at the park' just email me and i'll copy and paste it into an email.  you can pay for it by doing something nice for someone or doing something mean to someone for yourself.

i have a story in The Austin Review.  the story is called 'at the park.'  if anyone wants my copy of the journal, email me your address. the lock is busted off my mailbox and it probably won't ever get repaired, via slumlord bullshit so i don't really get mail.

NEW POEM

yo, if you've never washed clothes in your bathtub then fuck you

NEW POEM

eating cold soup out of the can and sitting on the floor as a rat runs by me, into the hole in the wall behind my toilet. everybody sucks but it's for different reasons. one million points for me, and none for you.
that shit where it feels like the third floor of your head just collapsed and came crashing down onto the second floor.
a few posts down i wrote about an article i want to start writing called 'pets of the world.'  if you want me to do this about your pet/s then email me like, 5-8 pictures and a couple paragraphs about your pet.   sampinkisalive  AT  GEE MAIL DAWT COM

that shit where you're on the bus going to work and start smiling/laughing to yourself because you think "chuck e. cheese.  the 'e' is his middle name, fuck."

7.6.14

condition where you're barely able not to yell 'leave me alone' in almost every situation regardless of what's happening.
courtroom revenge show called 'I Got Your Back!' where whoever is found guilty has to take off his/her shirt and have hot food placed on his/her back for a certain amount of time.  the audience chooses the food by cheering as the judge points to different foods on a chart.

i have a new book out through lazy fascist press, called, 'Rontel 2' 


lyrics

'for weeks now, you run and you talk in your sleep.
you shook me awake to announce: you're never alone.

spring was confusing a little bit scary
summer was much of the same
by winter you ran with the night, never came home.

(repeat)

scream bloody murder the mountains are listening.
vultures mistook you for dead, bloody.
how can you sleep when you can't pull the teeth from your eyes.'
award show called 'The Antis' where awards are give out for antisocial behavior.  like, people close to the award-winner get up on stage and recount some of the winner's more antisocial behavior, leading up to the award-winner's 'crowning achievement' for the year.
willing to write an ongoing article called 'pets of the world' where people email me about their pets and i either visit the pets (if they're close) or ask for pictures/information about the pet and then write a profile on the pet.
shouts out to the lady in the alley collecting cans who stopped to watch me jump rope for a little bit then thanked me for 'performing for her.'
