The World To Which The White Man Came
Nature had been at work for centuries. Centuries more men ranged from wandered over sailed the seas that washed each year new wonders of the so-called new world. Men’s lives are lived somewhere & often. The tale unfolds unduly unless he wishes to render back with margin a fact which cannot be overlooked. Land is just the line that cuts through runs the length along volcanic towering broken...

My son’s coming down, must make him supper. Vegetable lasagna. He’s vegetarian when he visits. No choice. Brew beer, much sterilizing of equipment. Putting it all together only takes minutes, but preparing to put it all together takes a few hours. I’ve wanted to brew this beer for weeks now and goddammit I’m doing it tonight. Leaving tomorrow for a few days. Will you miss...
The gleefully stupid perplex me.
These are the people who don’t know anything and laugh about it. Very odd to me. Like the teenagers I just encountered laughing about how they don’t know what Sri Lanka is. They laughed like people who do know what it is are stupid. Snicker, snicker. There are millions of people like this in the U.S. I call them the IDGAF People. You find them on Tumblr quite a bit, busily unfollowing...

They’ve been around since the national turnover to artificial food in the 60s and none of them have worked. None.

You’d think you’d know that. So I went and saw this on the big screen last night. What fun. You prolly can’t tell from lookin’ at me, but I have a serious thing with Charles Schultz and Peanuts. I do. Snoopy is my spirit animal. They were showing it in an old theater, the kind with a balcony and an actual big screen, not a multi-plex, digital shoebox with ten buck popcorn....

“Period.” This was after Americans booed a soldier in uniform WHILE he was serving in Iraq, because, you know, “We support the troops” and all that happy shit. Santorum is against freedom and equality in every way, shape, and form. Back in the 90s, his wife even got a late-term abortion to save her life. He wouldn’t, however, extend that courtesy to anyone else. What...
(Don’t wanna create a massive reblog thing) “You’re talking about free speech in a school setting. That’s what I’m talking about. When I’m in a classroom my kids aren’t allowed to say anything offensive. They can’t cuss, say “that’s gay” or “that’s retarded” and they most certainly can’t say that they don’t like a certain group of people. I overheard one of my students saying “That’s...
Feelin feisty tonight :)
Ah, well. I’m done. Just glad I live in an age when I still have a good bit of free speech left. I do mourn for my grandkids, however.

Sometimes The Left Acts Like The Right
An honors student in Fort Worth, Texas, was sent to the principal’s office and punished for telling a classmate that he believes homosexuality is wrong. The classmate was a friend and the student said it in confidence. The teacher overheard it, however, and sent the boy away to the powers that be (no doubt some shmo with a tiny dick, comb-over, and cheap suit). There he was officially fucked with...
Don't Be Afraid of The Dark
So the bowling date did not happen. They were having ‘leagues’. No non-league people allowed. Sorry. Now get your non-bowling asses outta here! Undeterred, we settled for a generic date: Dinner and a Movie. I ate this penne stuff that was pure cheese. Solid cheese. Cheese as far as the eye could see. There were, oh, maybe 4 or 5 actual pennes….then CHEEEEEEESE! We went for a walk...

I have a date...to go bowling.
I haven’t bowled in years. There are two types of bowlers: those who bowl all the time, belong to a league, maybe even own their own ball and those like me, people who say “Wouldn’t it be hysterical if we went bowling?” They better serve beer….

Waning Beneath The Night Sky Glare
There’s stars out but no moon the sky seems empty or lonely like a clown funeral attended only by mimes or cowboys and indians getting along It sparkles but is blank like the eyes of a politician when promising a lie during a debate discussion that rattles and hums in the ovoid of understanding in the lacking of angular momentum. Or like false positive truth serum soda sliding down your throat,...
I haven't been on Tumblr since Friday
and I come back to find someone I had followed for a really long time has passed on. It’s very shocking and sad. I didn’t really “know” her. We just followed each other and spoke via Tumblr a handful of times—always light-hearted stuff, nothing deep or interpersonal. She was so young, 29. Wow. I don’t believe in death, not for the one who passes. Death is only...
blue-lion-kgb-spy asked: i have actually read your book during english class because i forgot my textbook and i dont share textbooks with people cuz id rather read alone. the only book i had in my bag was EOoN. so i fucking read it.
uptoolate asked: Specifically in regard to your article about the war on poverty, and generally for the writing and cynicism thing: you da man, Michael Kindt. You da man.
lessthanorequalto asked: just saying, but i'd rather read your book for a semester than anything my english professor has chosen.
you can rent my book for a semester. Weird. I always knew I was in a class by myself, but am I an actual class now? Haha. I HIGHLY doubt it. Early Onset of Night 101. I actually think I’m a 300 level, but anyway. I envision college student quotes…. “Shit! I’m flunking Early Onset of Night.” “I can’t go clubbing. I have to read 20 pages of that creepy book,...
christiankeyes: christiankeyes: Are ‘Anarcho’-Capitalists Really Anarchists? In a word, no.

As a result, any claims that their ideas are anarchist or that...

The War On Poverty
In America, we don’t much like the poor and/or needy. They’re always whining, wanting help. We’ve even gone so far as to call the help we do reluctantly give them ‘entitlement’ programs. It’s a brilliant turn-about of phrase on our part and actually makes them sound pompous. The noble Liberalism that emerged during the 18th and 19th centuries and came to partial fruition in the 20th is now dead....
It's 11:50 am. Too early for wine?
There’s a Cru Beaujolais sitting over there on the counter, crying “Drink me! Drink me!” in this tiny, cute voice that’s just tugging at my heartstrings.

Although the United States is an international melting pot and the average American makes a dozen moves in a lifetime, regional accents are alive and well. In fact, regional accents are becoming stronger and more different from each other, says William Labov, a professor of linguistics at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, although it’s not entirely clear why. story
