Hi. Welcome to my website!  Honestly, I don’t do much here.  It’s a place that I had hoped to use to stay focused by organizing my thoughts, schedule, and goals. I’m not sure it’s done that… but there’s still time.

I started the website on an outdated notion, spurring from the dot com boom, that we had to protect our names. So here I am to defame myself! 😂

It’s my hopes that I will use the website to talk about things that are interesting to me, music, coding, Japan, and yes, benzo dependency, all sprinkled and decorated with random thoughts that don’t fit into any of those categories.

If you’d like to know a bit more about me from a time that I had few accomplishments, but wanted to make myself look good, here is an extended bio that I did not write.

Lady Gaga naked at the Grammys?

I thought Janet Jackson had more clothes on during the famed Super Bowl half-time show, in which Justin Timberlake had ripped off her top to reveal an almost bare breast that was slightly masked behind a nipple ring. Now to be technical, isn't this a pretty direct...

Christina Aguilera disses Auto Tuning
