went to see Kid Rock at this county fair in western michigan last night…realized while there how many fake fucks with two or three university degrees pretend to care about auto workers, fast food workers, military vets, etc etc…yet would never want to be in the same space with them. like, at a Kid Rock concert. or a county fair. and instead make fun of Kid Rock and his audience. and instead are ‘embarrassed’ by things like living in brooklyn and owning a closet-sized washer and dryer, and eat quinoa, and write sentences that can only be understood by the top 1% of ‘intellectuals.’
last night i realized i never want to leave the midwest.

La vie quotidienne
"I guess I’m still coming to terms with the fact that when I walk out of a room the story line continues in the room I just left instead of following me around like a security camera." - Chelsea Martin, Even Though I Don’t Miss You
Jellyfish cosmology is unusual in that it contains no devils; jellyfish are drawn to the good lie, the myth of benevolence, like scraps of metal to a magnet.I have five animal poems up at Hobart today! (via outsidewarmafghans) (it is a true error)
you say you don’t have any interest in what Scott McClanahan and I somewhat jokingly (but mostly seriously) refer to as ‘bleeding on the page.’ Why is that? do you think you can be a successful writer without bleeding? Is this really just a comment about your wife’s writing?

The Creator of Lazy Wolf
My name is Alex Jiang.
I am nine years old and I live in Hinsdale, Illinois.
I’ve started drawing when I was 4, and it has been one of
my favorite activities ever since.
I also have other hobbies like piano, origami, and tennis.
There’s a iPad game called
Minecraft, which I like playing too.
Well I’ve first gotten inspiration for
Lazy Wolf during an art class at school.
The art teacher assigned us to make an animal comic.
She gave us suggestions like zebra, crocodile etc.
During the weekend I think, an idea popped into my head,
“I should start an animal cartoon!”
The first animal to appear in my mind was a wolf
which sounded pretty good,
and I picked lazy so it can make the cartoon more funny.
So then Lazy Wolf was born!
