Wrong Side of History

I’ve spent the past few months fighting off a malaise, unable to draw or do anything creative. It all seemed pointless in the wake of November’s election.

So I gave up and read a bunch of Star Wars books. I read a lot of Star Wars books. Since November 8th, I’ve read the entire New Jedi Order series (19 novels). I then jumped into the next series of books but couldn’t take it anymore. I had officially Star Warsed myself to the point I couldn’t read another line of prose about Luke Skywalker without losing my freakin’ mind.

But the malaise persisted. I wandered around a lot, read a few comic books, but was going a little stir-crazy.

So I said “fuck it”. Why fight my desire to dwell on current events? So I’m going to talk about current events. I’m going to bitch about current events. I’m going to point out how un-American we’re acting right now.

Because it’s the absolute least I should be doing and it’s either this or a lot of drinking.
