Hard Truths and a Reality Check About My Nomadic Identity

This past weekend, I was so excited. I hadn’t been to my campsite up at Nicolet National Forest since December. And it was two months before that when there wasn’t snow on the ground. I’ve been waiting seven months to do some camping! I monitored snow coverage maps for weeks, waiting impatiently for the snow to melt. Then I waited Read More …

Asking the Right Questions

I’ve had a minor breakthrough today in my efforts to figure out what to do with the rest of my life. I don’t have answers yet. But I may have removed (or reduced to rubble) an obstacle in my thought process. I’m cautiously optimistic that with a few more days of contemplation, I might finally have some answers. Even though Read More …

Implications of the Forgotten States Road Trip On My Future

Road trips provide excellent opportunities for reflection, introspection, and self-discovery. For me, TransWorld and the Forgotten States Road Trip were no exception to this rule. The trip gave me plenty to think about in terms of my future plans – where and how I’ll live, and how I’ll earn a living. Unfortunately, I’m left feeling like I’m back at square Read More …

Forgotten States Road Trip: Part II – TransWorld 2018

I planned the Forgotten States Road Trip around TransWorld, since being in St. Louis already saved me about a thousand miles had I done these two trips separately. Although the convention itself was pretty damn good this year, I did not particularly enjoy my visit – for a number of different reasons. But through adversity, I can say that I Read More …

Till Death Do Us Part

I’ve completed one other corpse project after “Nasir”. I had two more miniature skeletons to use, so rather than make two individual corpses, I decided to take what I did with Nasir to the next logical step, and actually depict some necrophilia. Say “hi” to Shaun and Zach. The Build As I did with Nasir, this piece features multi-layered fleshing Read More …

Georgia On My Mind

My time is running out. TransWorld is just about a month away. After that, I’ll spend about a week or so finishing up the Forgotten States Road Trip. After that – if my landlord honors our agreement – I could be asked to vacate my apartment at any time. So the pressure to figure out where I’m going to go Read More …

Tarzan, the Feral Zombie

Fresh off my North American Road Trip, I wanted to pay homage to my feral days by making a Tarzan-esque corpse. As with Nasir, this one also had to be locked into position, but this position would be far less natural and more difficult to lock into place. Tarzan’s Construction I got him into his apish stance with rope rigging Read More …

Bones, Hansel, and Mini Hanging Meat

Here are three more corpses that I don’t have a whole lot to say about. Mini Hanging Meat The “Mini Hanging Meat” is a miniature version of Casey. I have yet to find appropriately scaled chains or clothing for him, and I haven’t decided on a name. Bones Bones was a quick corpse I built for Green Bay Fear, and Read More …

Nasir, a Sex Doll for Necrophiliacs

I’ve been saying for a long time that once I got the hang of corpse-building, that I would eventually make a sex doll for necrophiliacs. I wasn’t joking. Allow me to introduce “Nasir”. Nasir’s Namesake There’s no shortage of cute guys I could have named him after. I chose Nasir, a character from Spartacus played by Pana Hema Taylor. I Read More …
