Another goal has just been met. Finished school this past week. feel great. I’m the first McFail to get a college degree.

It feels a bit anti- climatic having taken 12 years to get it done after various breaks, but it feels good.


The monkey is certainly off my back, for now.


I see myself moving to Oregon in a few months, working in advertising, writing a weekly column, and starting a country/folk band.

I think it’ll be really fun to let it all hang out for a bit.

Then possibly move to Eugene to study history, and film as a grad student..perhaps they’d let me work on my second novel as a dissertation?????

As for writing, well I’m working on a new project, titled Good People, Bad habits. There are bout fifty poems in it and I plan to have it ready for print by the middle of summer.

other than that, just working on booking some gigs, and doing a bit of traveling this summer.

East coast scheming, west coast dreaming, it’ll be a good time. A great summer. So what now? Well,  work, video games, and  gearing up for the summer activities.

And lots of Blazers basketball hopefully.


Playoffs?????? Playoffs!!!!!!??????

    if you make it to the nc i know a place maybe two where you can rip it up. it comes complete with orange-sherbet flavored hukas, a frizzy haired dude who quotes star trek and his buddy named fox. yes fox. (not his given name but damn he can make a swell pizza)
