Book Cover!

Or, I should rather say, interim book cover. Yes, one of the chief things I went forth and did after I could not get my story out of my head, was to create a mock up of the cover which I instantly found planted in my head one morning. As opposed to the title, which forced me out of bed in the middle of the night to scribble it down.

I’m hoping it comes across as intriguing and interesting as I found it when it entered my brain. Hanging beside my writing desk, it’s a constant reminder of what I’m trying to do, and moreover, a reminder to myself that I have this thing to work on, so maybe stop reading up on old Wikipedia entries on the varies titles of Kim Jong-il, and get to work on that instead? He had a lot of titles though. Like, far more than his son. (Honestly, it is my belief that if some higher up politician, maybe Trump, he seems like a good bet, went ahead and called him ‘Bubba’, it might actually stick cause it’s very applicable)

See? I just looked over to the wall beside me, and behold, the cover is telling me to stop procrastinating and just get on with it already. Anyway, here it is, though of it is of course subject to change:

This version also has the title slapped on there. Not perfect, but I love the color.


Happy Easter!

It’s easter again! And the sophomore post in our blog happens to concern it.

I swear, Easter is one of those holidays that always creep up on me, despite the abhorrant way the stores announce it with their seasonal sweets and whatnot. Even more so, I happen to work in a store, so I get this thread down over my head each year. Despite this, I always react with an ‘oh right, it’s Easter soon, ain’t it‘, and then everyone around me has apparently been anticipating it for a while.

Why do we have it again? Like, if I remember this correctly, then Jesus fell into a Sarlacc pit or went through puberty this time of year, and…that’s why we celebrate? I forget.

Anyway, I do happen to live with someone amazing this year, unlike previous Easters, and as such I actually got an Easter egg for once. A treadition long dead in my family since I turned, oh I don’t know, twelve? It now, however, makes a grand return at the tender age of 25 26.

Instead of a boring egg I instead received a brain egg. I’m unsure of why, but I’ll just assume she thinks I’m very intelligent. And too good for normal eggs.

It also came complete with Game of Thrones memorophilia. Can’t really go wrong there.

Stage Fright.

Jumping into the unknown can be scary. Hell, downright terrifying. Ray Bradbury once said, in a quote that surely resonated well with people, enough that as I write this it’s one of the things that come to mind, ‘Jump, and you will find out how to unfold your wings as you fall‘. Good quote, and one that is quite fitting for what this post is all about: plunging into the unknown.

Yet, as this whole thing is about to start I’d feel unsatisfied with this unless I began it with a quote from the Grand Master himself, Terry Pratchett:

“Wisdom comes from experience. Experience is often a result of lack of wisdom.”

Let’s fail hard?

Hi there! My name is Christian, and I am the honorable co-owner of this here blog. It is also run by Phoebe, who in an insurmountable amount of ways is my significant other. I try my best to write, and the dream is to become a full-time author. Phoebe, on the other hand, is the most amazing painter and artist I’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting. So now she sometimes makes me dinner and cleans the apartment, which is a total and horrible waste of her talent.

My main project, which part of this blog is named after, is called Absolute Absurdity. It is a selfdescribed comedy of epic proportions. Unless I’ll still be writing for the complete and utter vacuum of nothingness out there on the interwebs, there will hopefully be some readers down the line who feel intrigued enough to find out what it’s all about as I unveil more about it.

And there’ll be art. And lots of it. Pheebs dreams of living off her dream as well, and whatever she does, it’ll eventually make its way onto this blog.

So for now, that’s our little intro.
