Corpsing Status Update

Ordinarily, I prefer to post updates about my corpsing projects here after I’ve completed them. But, this next series of corpses is taking a lot longer than normal. A typical corpse takes me less than a week to build. It’s usually as simple as melting a first layer of plastic onto the bones, then staining the flesh and giving it 24 Read More …

Just Say “No” to Unnecessary Detours

I’m going to say a few things in this blog post that may seem contradictory. For example, I’m going to make it sound as though I like my job, even though I hate my job. Bear with me. This is a blog post of subtlety and nuance. Retail Regrets The job I have today is a job I accepted out Read More …

Grumpy Old Man Rant – Christmas Edition

Let’s be honest – the Grumpy Old Man Rant – Halloween Edition was very self-serving. Although I meant every single word I said, it was all about what I want and not giving a shit about anyone else’s opinion.

I compiled a laundry list of events and venues in Read More …

Memento Mori and #InstagramFilteredLife

Walking Amongst Dead Things From time to time, I enjoy a nighttime stroll through graveyards. And now that I live very close to a very large cemetery, I’m hoping to make it a more routine tradition. Obviously, late night strolls through graveyards conjure very fantastical images (ghosts and zombies) in the mind of a haunter such as myself. But these Read More …

An Open Letter to “Normies”

In my effort to teach my old self some new tricks, I was poking around on Google the other day and typed “how to survive as a drifter” into the search bar. These following three results caught my eye and are the purpose of this post. What It’s Like Living as a Crust Punk Reddit: I want to become a Read More …

Teaching an Old Dog New Tricks

Sitting here today, I would describe myself as a man who has tasted true freedom and desperately wants to return to life on the road. Or – at least – to have the freedom once again to travel on a whim. It is possible. I know several people who have made it work. Some of them run location-independent businesses and Read More …
