Not everyone knows that I also write and publish books, including a few "how to" and "teach yourself" titles like:

Just wanted to take a second and let those who care know that despite premature reports of the death of my attention span, I am indeed working on Tales for Wandering Children Part 2. I'm still in my garage 'studio' mediating while my cast of characters duke it out and scripts sprinkle from the rafters like so much fairy dust. But I think the wait will be worth it. My 2 to 10 inch tall friends seem to have lots on their minds.

Ann Coulter says:

That was the dirty me
the one spilled sideways along an exit ramp

(litter tramp)

I sleep in box by TV store
I no get bored

I know score

The dirty me
the one renditioned with loose change from the petty cash tin

pebble dirtied grin

can I come in?

Sometimes no one asks me: "Dave, what's the best album of all time?"
To which I don't reply: "There's no 'best' but today BLANK comes to mind."

JUNE 6 2006 (aka 666!)

People have been asking me if I have any special evil plans today - aside from the usual devil worship and baby sacrifices I can't say that I do. But since Lucifer speaks to me directly I will tell you that He thinks the whole "666" thing is ridiculous. In fact, He and I were riffing on it just the other day:

"668" - The Anti-Christ's next door neighbor

"333" - The Anti-Christ's midget sidekick

"121212" - Now twice as evil

"999" - Dyslexic Anti-Christ

"5.8 5.9 6.1" - Approximate Evil

Here's one from the "so-many-Christians-so-few-lions" department:

- personally, I take no small comfort in the knowledge that no matter how low I sink I most likely will never surpass the crimes of those elected to represent me.

Did this a while ago......but seems like time to bring it back....

The gleaming torch of narcissism brightens the walls of a dull life


Thou shalt have no devils before me
Wanna party?

Well, I've been alive now longer than some of you and less than others. I still don't like the taste of cantaloupe and having a rusty shovel shoved between my two front teeth is still my biggest phobia.

Recently my creative disease has been offset a bit by my lazy ailment but I'm still doing more than Ford did while he was in office.

Despite the creeping wrinkles and new age spots I'm confident that the women out there still see me as the cute 24 year old socially underdeveloped navel gazer that I'll always be.

I'll do my best to keep giving the 20 to 50 people who visit here a day something to look at.

With each visit to this site you all grow so much more special to me.

eternal, unfathomable (but regretfully conditional) love,

I only have one personality, but it has multiple personalities. I'm always just it, but it is always full of something else. Even shallow water reflects.
