I kind of made a big hullabaloo like three months ago over my commitment toward writing again.

About a month and a half later I published the saga of my Adderall addiction. It took me that long to write.

I realize that any old schmo who comes across this blog would think, “this guy is a whole lot of talk – not so much execution.”

Well

Writing Hiatus Over?

By |Friday, March 21st, 2014|Categories: Uncategorized|Tags: , |0 Comments

Share! It makes me happy!

I need to start writing again.

Those words have crossed my mind more days than not for the past year. Especially as of late.

Writing is just so damn hard, though.

Well, good writing is hard. Writing about writing is lazy writing. But I gotta start somewhere.

It’s been a hell of a year of not writing. I kicked a nasty drug addiction (which initiated my hiatus), got a real job (no comment on my previous ‘fake’ job),

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

19,000 people fit into the new Barclays Center to see Jay-Z perform. This blog was viewed about 150,000 times in 2012. If it were a concert at the Barclays Center, it would take about 8 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

The Three People You meet on Facebook

You ever log into Facebook and notice a Friend Request that you know you’ve accepted before? According to Facebook 4.8 percent of all active accounts are duplicate, non-human, or spam. This comes as no real news to me. In my list of friends now numbering in the thousands, I have always noticed spam friends, duplicate accounts, and friend(ing) friends pets and/or businesses.

Don’t Eat the Chicken

Share! It makes me happy!


The only time I have an urge to eat at Chick-Fil-a is on Sunday… (Un)fortunately, they are always closed on Sunday. It comes with the territory that is the owners philosophy: “Sunday is the day God rested, its the Sabbath and all people’s should have that day off to worship and fellowship in his name”(paraphrased).  This philosophy is Christian because the owner is a devoted

Holy Gonads: A Year of Blogging

By |Wednesday, March 7th, 2012|Categories: Uncategorized|Tags: , , , |0 Comments

Share! It makes me happy!

Whilst browsing this blog today in order to ensure nothing is askew, I noticed a little detail. Both the first and last month listed under my “Archive” section are March. Which would support the thesis that EWWTY is officially one year old.

When I first started EWWTY, I had hoped to challenge myself by writing for it every day. While I didn’t end up meeting that challenge, I did manage to write daily for a

Ed Darrell posted this interesting graphic from grist.com, along with his own insightful analysis of it, over at Millard Fillmore’s Bathtub. The graphic makes apparent the nonsense; Darrell makes sense of the nonsense.

“Can’t Get Enough of Ron Paul…”

By |Thursday, December 22nd, 2011|Categories: Politics, Uncategorized||0 Comments

Share! It makes me happy!

I really like talking about Ron Paul and for a number of reasons. Firstly, because the media and the mainstream opinion make him out to be a crazy-know-nothing, who somehow has been elected and re-elected as a congressman of the state of Texas since before most of his supporters were born. The state of Texas may be a little looney-tunes (no offense) but you

“Virginia Really is For Lovers”

I know you don’t really care, but being from Virginia (the capital state of the south) and living and working in Atlanta, Georgia (the capital city of the south) I am really proud of my southern heritage (even though I am black). I love history! And history has been made once again in the great commonwealth of Virginia.

At first, I saw the image above and simply thought it was about

Vanity Fair reported late last night that Christopher Hitchens died at age 62. His death was caused by pneumonia brought upon by esophageal cancer, which he was diagnosed with in 2010.

From the Vanity Fair article –

“Cancer victimhood contains a permanent temptation to be self-centered and even solipsistic,” Hitchens wrote nearly a year ago in Vanity Fair, but his own
