Call To Arms!

The Thanksgiving armistice is over. Bellies full, we plunge headlong back into the fray! Starbucks be damned, Let the battle commence!

Native, Militant Westsylvanian (the first last best place), laborer, gardener, and literary hobbyist (if by literary you mean "hack"). I've had a bunch of different blogs, probably four, due to a recurring compulsion to start over. This incarnation owes to a desire to dredge up the best entries of the worst little book of hand-scrawled poems I could ever dream of writing, salvageable excerpts from fiction both in progress and long-abandoned. and a smattering of whatever the hell seems to fit at any particular moment. At first blush, I was here just to focus on old, terrible verse, but I reserve the right to include...anything. Maybe everything, certainly my love of pulp novels, growing garlic, the Pittsburgh Steelers and howling at the moon--both figuratively and, on rare occasions, literally.

Goddamn right. And if you don’t like the plain red cup from Starbucks, please allow me to scribble “Merry Shitscream” on your cup with a Sharpie. This solemn day after Thanksgiving is all about retail therapy (the black Friday deals), it’s a day when you rush out, belly still full from yesterday’s turkey, to buy cheap shit at the mall or the outlets, and you behave like a crazy bastard, shoving others aside to grab up that perfect whatever for whoever.

Merry Shitscream! That’s great! The whole War on Christmas thing is so ludicrous, I’ve begun to enjoy watching how these cynical bastards find new ways each year to whip up some controversy (and some Twitter hits) and self-promotion–not to mentioned being bemused by the sheep who bleat angrily and on cue in their fox news generated outrage. (And they’re the ones standing at line outside KMart at 6am on Thanksgiving.) I almost look forward to it.

Yes the “war in Christmas”…we can always do like Frank Costanza (the Seinfeld character played by Jerry Stiller) and celebrate Festivus (or invent a holiday all our own).
