Name In Vain (Part 4)
A Really Redundant Review of Ronans

thanks, Marvel This insufferable lout’s birthday has come and gone but this series has yet to wrap. Why must it take so long to finish a vanity post? Surely, all those so-called work-things can wait? They can’t possibly be more important than this bloggist writing about his own name, can they? No, you say? Well,

Name In Vain (Part 3)
A Really Redundant Review of Ronans

For such an inane egotistic endeavor, you would find that this is a rather extensive series of posts. Thank you, kind reader. It is still this bloggist’s birthday in some parts of the world, anyway. We have thus far discussed a bunch of people who have gone by the name of Ronan, all of whom

Name In Vain (Part 2)
A Really Redundant Review of Ronans

this album Moving on, we discover through Wikipedia that very few Ronans of note seemed to have existed between the medieval ages and the 20th century (the period in which this bloggist was born – what a coincidence!). Of course, we’re not discounting the fact that people just got lazy documenting all those Ronans in

Name In Vain (Part 1)
A Really Redundant Review of Ronans

thanks, Wikimedia For what it’s worth, the Internet has made all sorts of information accessible to all sorts of people. Google is indeed a good venue to type in one’s name if only to reap a certain narcissistic pleasure at the results (I hope your name isn’t “Butch Cuckoldry”). On this most special of days,

Face Hugger (Part 2)
Facing Off With Famous Lookalikes

Why… hello again, dear reader. Welcome to the end, the conclusion, the money shot – so to speak – for this facial undertaking. I trust we are all friends in here, so thank you for coming yet again. There won’t be big explosions for this last spurt of vanity, however. Don’t be blue, though… we’re

Face Hugger (Part 1)
Facing Off With Famous Lookalikes

Hello, reader.  I’m not sure whether we have already met personally, but if not, I can assure you that you’re not missing much. Should you meet me one of these days and recognize me as ‘that learning incapacitated bloggist’, it likely won’t be through photographs that I have posted myself. I have an irrational revulsion

Sleep-o-Lama

thanks, Wikimedia What I thought would be the most opportune occasion to rectify my awful sleeping habits last week only turned out making things worse. Not being used to operating with a surplus of time, I ended up cramming more useless (however enjoyable) activities into my ‘extra’ hours. My sleeping habits are the worst. I

Karl Roy / Self Titled

I had the chance to interview Karl Roy some five years ago while I was Contributor-in-Chief for a friend’s music zine. Because we were tech-savvy, the interview was done in real-time email. Of all the people I talked to for that ensemble feature, Karl seemed to be the least guarded, and in an unexpectedly mellow

Disparate House Wipe

Yesterday was quite the pleasant surprise. After twenty-two years, I was able to revisit the house I grew up in (thanks to our old landlord). That house, funnily enough, is right across our office compound. The walls surrounding it have gotten higher over the years, but all the same, I pass by it daily and

Ohh de Toilet

Disregard what you have heard about working for the family business. True, there will always be issues about boundaries, especially about responsibility and accountability – that’s normal. The truth, however, is much more complicated: the biggest problem about sharing an office with family members is figuring out acceptable toilet conventions. I fear that an explanation
