DART ETIQUETTE

3X

I’m usually listening to something, even as I’m writing this post now, I have Ulthar’s Anthronomicon spinning lowly on the record player positioned on the left side of my desk. If I’m driving, reading, doing the dishes, helping the kids with their homework, anything, I’m listening to something. I mean, fuck, I listen to something…

6/2

Hey. It’s raining in Queens and already much too hot for me. I have a few posts in the works but you may or may not notice a little slow down in content. I am working on novel no. 4, and my writing time, my free time overall really, is limited. I’m making this manuscript…

…King Me.

“Ghostface! Catch the blast of a hype verse!” My personal favorite master of ceremony is Ghostface Killah. Born on May 9th, 1970, Dennis Coles of Stapleton Projects in Staten Island, would adopt a moniker from The Mystery of Chess Boxing. A kung fu flick from ’79, and a song off of the debut, whose music…

Kerhonkson

My family and I travel to upstate New York fairly often throughout the year to visit relatives in Sullivan County. The traffic leaving or entering the city is generally the worst part of the trip. The GW bridge is horrendous and patches of roadwork along the way sucks but it’s beyond my control. I enjoy…

Mother’s Day

I think about my Mother often, and on occasions like this one, it’s difficult not to. On January 6th, 2014, I worked late, and was walking to the express bus in midtown Manhattan. I couldn’t wait to get back to my little basement apartment in my Uncle’s house in Whitestone, Queens. My phone rang, I…

Betting On The Team

The Triple Crown consists of three big races: the Kentucky Derby, Preakness and Belmont Stakes. The races occur in Churchill Downs in Louisville, Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore and lastly, on the border of my home borough of Queens, in the Nassau county town of Elmont. Despite having the final leg of the thoroughbred race,…

I, Myself, Am Strange And Unusual

I remember the day I found you. I couldn’t forget that day if I wanted to. You always seem to float into my thoughts as if you’re standing right behind me whispering in my ear. It took me an entire week of exploration to stumble upon you. I rode along that street, a street I couldn’t fathom how it was…

Pink Ticket

In my youth I’ve been the unlucky recipient of many criminal court summonses, more than any responsible and well adjusted young person should probably receive. Majority of the tickets were alcohol related, and the most common offense was “Open Container.” Section 10-125 (2b) – Consumption of Alcohol on Streets Prohibited. In Queens, during our formative…

Corned Beef and Cabbage

Happy St. Patrick’s Day. It’s a big deal for me. It’s always been that way. A combined celebration, one of ancestry and heritage directly followed by my birthday. A one-two punch. I was almost named Patrick. I like Sean better. I used to go on a proper tear, I might have a touch but it’s…

Bowery Drift

Trator always drove. It was never a question. I’m not condoning driving under the influence or even advising it, but merely stating how things were then. He loved a combustion engine. Fast cars, faster bikes. Regardless of the level of inebriation, which we just chalked it up as being fun, 98 percent of the time…
