This is my blog. The header title comes from a song by the Ataris. The full lyric is, “on random notes of parchment, I’m scrawling my existence…dressed in white.” The description comes from a Fall Out Boy song. I know that twenty-somethings who graduated from prestigious private universities are only supposed to acknowledge the existence of pop culture when they engage in facebook wars over whether Batman is a paternalistic capitalist and Spiderman is really the superhero of the working class, but I have to admit a weakness for early 2000’s emo music. There, now that that’s out of the way, what is this blog about, anyway?
I write. I read. I’ll be writing about writing and you can read about my reading. I’ll write about life. And maybe, when I’m being completely sincere, I’ll be funny. I’m told that the less I try, the funnier I am, with the result being that when I’m at my most earnest, I’ve got my family in stitches.
So, here goes.
