Guts, by Chuck Palahniuk
One of my favorite short stories. Not for the faint of heart, and definitely NSFW. If you’ve never read, it’s the first short story in Mr. Palahniuk’s Haunted collection. It also has quite the history of making people pass out at live readings due to its graphic nature. chuckpalahniuk: Inhale. Take in as much air as you can. This story should last about as long as you can hold...
“Works Every Time” — El-P (featuring Zola Jesus), on Conan 6/27/12. Love this track, though Zola seems waaaaaay out of place, compared to, say, performing with M83 on “Intro.”
To the future or to the past, to a time when thought is free, when men are...– George Orwell, 1984

Lost is probably one of my all-time favorite shows. It gets a lot of ire for it’s supposed lack of resolution, but I loved it. If you’ve been looking for all the answers, look no further… Cody from Cracked.com has them for you… (even though I could’ve probably explained it myself, but I don’t have that much space.)

”’[I]f we can get a bill on information-sharing to the president’s desk, he’ll sign it. I do believe that,’ Rogers said Monday after a panel discussion. CISPA passed the House of Representatives in April, and is expected to go before the Senate for a vote in late June or July.” Dislike.
This was a chapter I left out of the book on the advice of my editor, Ian (@theangelremiel). Basically his advice was that this chapter was very well written but didn’t add anything to the story. Wise man. I mean, wow, it would’ve killed the momentum if I kept it where it was (somewhere around chapter 20). Anyway, it’s problematic in several ways — it contains a lengthy...

singularitarian: So this guy at NYU made something special. Are you listening? Put down your phone. Listen. So they made a machine that prints… no, don’t check Twitter. They made a machine that prints burritos. EPIC.
"The Erased" now available for the Nook →
My e-book, The Erased, is now available for the Nook from Barnes & Noble. I also recently made it available in various formats from Smashwords. Previously, it had only been available from the Kindle store. A review from the Amazon page: “A great story depicting a not so far fetched future. Told concurrently from multiple perspectives, this novel keeps you on the edge of the page, and...

riot at yorkville
This is the first chapter of my current work-in-progress. I don’t have a title for the overall work yet, though I’m leaning toward simply “Heathen.” This is based on an older manuscript of mine (which was told entirely from the point-of-view of the Alex Graves character). That old, terrible manuscript clocked in at 195,000 words — but it wasn’t very good so...
