Timothy Patrick Hinkle is always singing and/or humming and/or strumming. It may be a tune you've heard before or it might be one he just made up. He's been doing it for quite a long time now. He has been heard suggesting that he may even have been paid to do so at some point, though usually he is simply walking down the street or riding on the bus and unable, or perhaps unwilling, to stop.

His restful spirit has been haunting a public library for much of the last couple of decades. His body is often there as well, though not always at the same time.

He is an occasional competitor on SongFight.org.

He recorded an audiobook in 2012; it was an awful lot of work. He was very happy that the publisher didn't object to the little tunes played on the

Wailing, I Say!

Well, I'm sitting in a boat. I sure hope that it can float. Trying to make up a song, one that won't go on too long, I'm sitting in a boat.



I had written a song for the next fight, "Better Luck Next Year," before I had this quite finished. I like that song quite a bit more than this one, but this one is probably still fine? People on the Song Fight message boards seem to be responding favorably to

Piranesi by Susanna Clarke
“Raphael looked around at the sombre grey Waters lapping the Walls and the dripping Statues. She didn't say anything.

'It's usually a lot drier than this,' I said quickly in case she was thinking that my Home was inhospitable and damp.”

Ursula Vernon
“There is something about a bathroom that feels like a fortress. A closed bathroom door may only be about two inches of plywood, but it feels like an iron bar.”
Ursula Vernon, Castle Hangnail

T.H. White
“Life is such unutterable hell, solely because it is sometimes beautiful. If we could only be miserable all the time, if there could be no such things as love or beauty or faith or hope, if I could be absolutely certain that my love would never be returned: how much more simple life would be. One could plod through the Siberian salt mines of existence without being bothered about happiness. Unfortunately the happiness is there. There is always the chance (about eight hundred and fifty to one) that another heart will come to mine. I can't help hoping, and keeping faith, and loving beauty. Quite frequently I am not so miserable as it would be wise to be.”
T.H. White, Ghostly, Grim and Gruesome

Arundhati Roy
“The sky was thick with TV. If you wore special glasses you could see them spinning through the sky among the bats and homing birds—blondes, wars, famines, football, food shows, coups d'état, hairstyles stiff with hair spray. Designer pectorals. Gliding towards Ayemenem like skydivers. Making patterns in the sky. Wheels. Windmills. Flowers blooming and unblooming.”
Arundhati Roy, The God of Small Things

Nick Hornby
“The unhappiest people I know, romantically speaking, are the ones who like pop music the most; and I don't know whether pop music has caused this unhappiness, but I do know that they've been listening to the sad songs longer than they've been living the unhappy lives.”
Nick Hornby, High Fidelity

Terry Pratchett
“All right," said Susan. "I'm not stupid. You're saying humans need... fantasies to make life bearable."

REALLY? AS IF IT WAS SOME KIND OF PINK PILL? NO. HUMANS NEED FANTASY TO BE HUMAN. TO BE THE PLACE WHERE THE FALLING ANGEL MEETS THE RISING APE.

"Tooth fairies? Hogfathers? Little—"

YES. AS PRACTICE. YOU HAVE TO START OUT LEARNING TO BELIEVE THE LITTLE LIES.

"So we can believe the big ones?"

YES. JUSTICE. MERCY. DUTY. THAT SORT OF THING.

"They're not the same at all!"

YOU THINK SO? THEN TAKE THE UNIVERSE AND GRIND IT DOWN TO THE FINEST POWDER AND SIEVE IT THROUGH THE FINEST SIEVE AND THEN SHOW ME ONE ATOM OF JUSTICE, ONE MOLECULE OF MERCY. AND YET—Death waved a hand. AND YET YOU ACT AS IF THERE IS SOME IDEAL ORDER IN THE WORLD, AS IF THERE IS SOME...SOME RIGHTNESS IN THE UNIVERSE BY WHICH IT MAY BE JUDGED.

"Yes, but people have got to believe that, or what's the point—"

MY POINT EXACTLY.”
Terry Pratchett, Hogfather
