Hey guys! About a week and a half ago I started a YouTube channel called “PaperBearPlays,” a gaming, Let’s Play channel for me to play and record my playing games and share them with all of you. Today, I am excited to announce that I am starting a new series that will run for the rest of the month entitled, “Paper Bears’s Poop Your Pantstober.” This will be a series dedicated toward what makes Halloween special: the scariness, the creepiness, the fall-like, crisp chills, and the games that will be played will reflect that. There will be Halloween-like games, creepy games, and downright, horrifying, “poop your pants” scary games, all to bring you into that holiday spirit which will be starting up quite soon. (more…)
I’m never really too sure of when the change from summer to fall happens; I think we’re in fall now. Actually we are…I guess technically. See, where I live, summer is one of those things whose presence is felt all year long. It gets cold here, for sure, but one of the biggest things that makes summer so unbearable is the humidity, is the fact that it can be 70 degrees outside, but feels like you’re shut up in some malleable box that is following you around, holding in the juices, the air, the everything around you, to raise the temperature up about 20. Fall is near nonexistent as is apparent by the last couple of days: it’s been in the high 60s, but a six day rainstorm has made it feel like a punishment if you are even wearing clothes outside. It’s rough.
Winter is just knowing that summer is coming and spring is just pre-summer–and then we’re back at it again. (more…)
So I’ve recently discovered that tomorrow (September 29th) is National Coffee Day, another one of the holidays in the same vein as Skyscraper Appreciation Day on August 10, Homemade Bread Day on November 17, and Cellophane Tape Day on May 27 (all of which I believe are for real, but–come on, let’s be honest…). And while, in the past, I never would have cared for this day too much, it’s something I can genuinely get behind now. (more…)
A toothsome breeze of shepherd’s pie
is lifted from a table near and right
beside, a sweaty pint of amber
sits waiting to be downed. A dog
inside, a scruffy rug, lies before the hearth,
and patrons in high spirits scarcely
notice the falling flame. The publican tends
the fireplace, kindling the logs inside,
and high above the snowy mound–
a wafting smoke.
This post will probably be a little shorter than most others because of what’s in the title: life. (more…)
It’s all in the title.
I am starting my very own Let’s Play channel entitled PaperBearPlays.
Now, maybe you don’t know what a Let’s Play is, and I wouldn’t blame you if you didn’t—it’s an odd offshot community unknown to those without a stake in gaming. (more…)
I think we’ve finally begun moving out of that puppy period with Flynn. (more…)
This weekend my cousin and his wonderful fiancée are getting married and I’ll get to be a small part of the wedding festivities. It’s kind of neat. I don’t often go to weddings (I think the last one I went to was about a year and a half ago), so it’s a neat thing in and of itself, but it’s my cousin too so that makes it even extra cooler.
After I get back from the weekend trip, I’ll be showing off a new project I’ve been working on which…is AWESOME!!
I think anyway.
It’s a pretty new thing I’ve been doing, and something I’m not great at yet, but will be hammering away at along with this blog, along with my still coming webcomic, and I think it’ll be pretty neat. Stay tuned. It’ll be featured here for sure.
Last Friday, a new Starbucks opened five minutes down the road from the coffee shop I work in and, my Lord, is it exciting. Sort of.
Okay…kind of not. (more…)
I slipped on a rock by the ocean
and fell down below the surface,
to the silted, still, below.
I sat swathed in the dusk
of a bottomed sea,
foaming from the cracks in my skin,
the dark places the water blithely pried into,
like fingers, wriggling, and ripping outward.
frolicsome in a sunlit drape,
suspended like playthings from worn out
I sat on the floor in silence.
