  • Mr. Humphrey, Such is the nature of faith. Consider the two sentences you reproduced here from Ms. Rice's Facebook account: "My faith in Christ is central to my life. My conversion from a pessimistic [...]read » davidlosangeles

Farewell, into the wild. . .

image thumbnail - see full story for attributions
I write my last post for True/Slant a bit worn out from a full day of kayaking yesterday. It was easy river kayaking, mainly, with just one madly technical section of Class 2 stuff, but a full day of paddling and some porting in the sun saps you a bit. The [...]

So long to the life we used to live

image thumbnail - see full story for attributionsVideo
My old man taught me to say "so long" whenever we parted because he contended "goodbye" should be reserved for permanent occasions, like the one Emily Dickinson refers to here:
Good-by to the life I used to live, And the world I used to know; And kiss the hills for me, [...]

Exit, laughing

My real 'goodbye' starts and ends here. It's just after 1pm in Budapest, which I suppose means around 7am in New York city, and another 18 hours before... what? I'm not really sure. Does the site just disappear offline with a trace? It seems hard to believe. Curmudgeonly old bastard that I [...]

Did Anne Rice just suck the blood out of Christianity?

image thumbnail - see full story for attributions
There's something kind of vampirish about Anne Rice's faith dilemma as it plays out. To wit: Anne Rice, on Facebook, Wednesday at 1:36 pm:
For those who care, and I understand if you don't: Today I quit being a Christian. I'm out. I remain committed to Christ as always but [...]

The duct-tape wallet

image thumbnail - see full story for attributions
As the T/S farewells pile up, and tears are shed and toasts are made (midnight July 31 is endgame; even Gawker gave kudos), I have realized one thing about all my outdoorsy bloggin': I never once talked about duct tape. The reason being is that duct tape is as regular as [...]

Out of focus, fading to black?

In November 2008, this so-called Jet-Set Hobo was in Buenos Aires when he filed his first story for True/Slant. It was called 'From Argentina with Love', and was in some way concerned with what was the new James Bond movie, 'A Portion of Condolence'.  If there was any actual film [...]

Corporate Takeover: The Inherent Distrust of Subsidized Creativity

In the film Glengarry Glenn Ross, the character of Blake, played by Alec Baldwin, utters an oft-quoted line following the famous 'steak knives' scene: "A-B-C. A-Always, B-Be, C-Closing. Always be closing, always be closing." In the context of the film, Blake repeats this mantra so as to burn it into [...]
