Served You Right

It had been a hard day, she pulled a double for her BFF Jill because Jillybean was sick (or hungover). After all, she could always use the hours. She waited patiently for the bus, it sidled up to her, the doors gently wheezed open and she gingerly strode forward. Suddenly a young man with a…

Fractional Me

I wrote some fiction for two characters in a Mage game that I found myself in. I thought I should share it somewhere other than Facebook, lest it get lost. You got it wrong, we didn’t break up because she wanted me to do something wrong, per se. We broke up because she wanted me to…

Let go

On the way to lunch I was thinking about the definition of racism (wait come back, this isn’t about racism!) I always adopt the sociological stance of the definition of racism when talking to people, which states that it is something that occurs when prejudice is backed with power. And in the United States the…

Seattle END AIDS walk

AIDS has taken away a lot from me, and I won’t let it take any more. Help me in fighting it. You can donate here, and I’ll be participating with the Seattle END AIDS walk on August 26th. Thanks.

Tim and Erik Awesome Show

Last night I punched the shit out of my friend Erik. To be fair he did the same to me. It started twenty days ago, we met for lunch and he told me that he was, “Working on a project” and that he was “a little embarassed about it”. Well how could one resist asking…

Let me explain, no wait it’s too complicated, let me #chinksplain

Several days ago my friend Yixin Li was talking about Black Lives Matter and cogently explained what it means and used the hashtag #chinksplain. As an Asian-American myself I laughed long and hard about his hashtag and vowed to myself to use it whenever appropriate. Here’s the thing though: I’m not Chinese, I’m Korean. (despite…

Everyone has a story 

When I was about nineteen my dad was spending his time dying of AIDS, and this once robust body builder of a man was shrunken down to stick-like bones and dry thin skin. He used to yell a lot, and he had a terrible temper. But he also sang like an angel and played the…

Road Rage

Last night I was driving my little xB to go get Sharon who needed to be picked up at the bus station. I was going 61 MPH in the “slow lane” when a woman in a silver BMW SUV got behind me. She then accelerated and was practically on my bumper, there was probably a…

SHAZA-OHGAWD!

Google’s “Dream Deep” program reinterprets my social media icon, and the results are predictably nightmarish.

Things that happened on Social Media this month so far

A Right Wing groups tried to tell the world that Planned Parenthood was selling fetal tissue for profit. They released a heavily edited video that distorted what PP reps were saying. Or it’s a massive conspiracy, you know depending on how your brain works. Tom Breevort from Marvel said something stupid about Marvel’s “Hip Hop…

The Ghost of Mr. Yunioshi

The other day a friend of mine asked if, “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” should be banned. I wasn’t really prepared to answer the question, but it lingered long enough with me. My two Won is that, no, the movie shouldn’t be banned, but the lingering effects on our culture from that movie should certainly be critically…

Dream Small

By my reckoning I’m not a wealthy man. My definition of wealth probably contains worlds, but for now my idea of wealth is simple: A place to call my own. I mean this in a literal way: I want a plot of land, it doesn’t have to be too big – 1 acre would be sufficient,…
