I’ve been drawing horizontal lines for the last half-hour, so a little break. To say “hi” and talk about things I like right now. First, Philip Roth. When I started reading him, I was unaware of the tendency to regard him as the “greatest living american author,” I just had seen his books on my […]


The amount of people who have downloaded Olympian is astounding. More people have done so than have done Girlz! This is fantastic! If you’re one who has downloaded Oly, then I thank you very much. And if you’re one who has downloaded Oly and then listened to it, then I adore you! So then, let’s […]


Hey, Billy, why are your hands black? I don’t know why. For some reason, even though everyone’s been saying it for years, having Billy Corgan be the only member of the Smashing Pumpkins is …I don’t know, I can’t say wrong, it just doesn’t sound right.

State St. 7th floor) this Friday (March 20th) at 7PM for the Undergraduate Exhibition (that i’m in, along with […]

what does one write about now? I’m eating cheese puffs (sadly not Cheece Puffs, wah-wah, not my inside joke), and feeling sorry for myself. no scholarships for me! now i absolutely have to line up at 3 in the morning for ox-bow. it is funny how mildly upset this news has made me. even though […]
