Maybe it's when we are struggling to come up with any ideas at all. Or maybe it's a bad review from a peer, a disappointing reaction, or a publication tha... Read more of this blog post »

My hometown has become a violent turf of gun-toting teams that get locked up so another flock of fools can take their place. Nimrods with nines caper, and become dickheads smiling in their mugshots like it's the prom. And guess what? It is, and after you get to the pen it's cherry picking time.
