A column which used to be a lengthy list of updates.
4/8/14 I posted something about baseball in the sports commentary section. I am putting some serious thought into my next project (which is explained in the introduction of the post that went live today), so we might see a bit of dead time here for a bit (which isn't to say that anyone who actually reads this is unfamiliar with that). We shall see how it turns out.
The last album I listened to: The Beatles - Revolver
The last Podcast I listened to: The Top 5 of Death: Episode 1 (Original Nintendo Games)
Book I am currently (using a loose definition of the word currently.... I mean clearly if I am typing this sentence right now I am not currently reading any book) reading: The Clash of Kings (Rereading)
Best thing I have seen on tv recently: Game of Thrones Season 4 ep 1, and damn it, it was fantastic.
Best movie I have seen recently: I haven't watched a movie in a long time.
Worst thing I have seen on tv recently: It was a bit over a week ago, but the series finale of How I Met Your Mother had such a shitty ending that I was completely pissed off about having wasted my time catching up with the series and thinking that it wouldn't come back to fucking Robin. Fuck that shit and fuck that show.
This next cluster of words is going to exist for the primary reason of having these two columns of text end at roughly the same place. The Cubs are sucking it up so far this year, but the last couple of games the bats are coming alive, so maybe it won't be so bad.
I (John Venrick) am just a guy who got fed up with his wordpress blog, and wanted to try and find a host capable of putting together something similar to the website swimming around my head. I wanted a place to showcase my various (self indulgent) writing endeavors and not look decidedly like something that came from working with wordpress.
The personal info associated with me is that I am a Denverite who is a father (and I love my little Sienna), a life long Cubs fan, an aburdist agnostic, and someone who has strong opinions on everything ranging from American cheese (it sucks) to the Tea Party movement (they suck). I am a former liberal arts student (Creative Writing major) with a love for language. For whatever reason, when typing, I always misspell the word certainly.
If for some strange reason you want to contact me, the links to my twitter, Facebook, and gmail are all hanging out in the header.
