I have taken a piece of my screwed up psyche and made art out of it. I liken this to the scene in the musical Pink Floyd the Wall where the main character smashes his hotel room in a fit of rage and afterwards makes a piece of art out of the remains. It’s a creepy way to think of my accomplishments, but then again, lots of creepy things go on in my mind.(less)

Sometimes when I’m alone (or at least when I’m sure I’m alone), I’ll do a back and forth dialogue between characters out loud.(less)

Chainsaw Channing Lugar

VERSE 1
Channing’s paycheck couldn’t buy him a feast
But he’s got beer and Netflix, at the very least
That’s what he gets for selling power tools
At the hardware store right out of trade school
Last thing he needed was the store to be robbed
What was there to steal? Nails and door knobs?
His nightmare came true at his work one day
