Though, I could make an ‘X link’.

I’m way too far outside my *Brain* construct…
Because I’ll never figure out how to monetize, I’ll say I never wanted to in the first place.

When you make that leap from Limp Bizkit's 'Break Something' to the Gorillaz "Feel Good, Inc." for a gif...you know the tone and direction of the day can change at any moment.
Brian K Compton - that's basically how the continuous multitude of playlists in my head work. (Of course, I don't control the tracks, there's no pause or skip, and the volume button is broken).

"Something About Coffee That’s Brewing

Title is a teaser and slight misnomer.

I swear my compree-hen-shun has increased by 10% with bean-pod entah-gray-shun and com-sumpt-shun with *shakes vial* medy-cay-shun.

Regarded as the ‘The second cup theory’.

Now back to your regularly misspelled, pot-hole-cratered grammar readings.

I used to think sad could seem so beautiful...

"Does It Title Well??

Now, I'm certain it is...without that happy ending.
I write and I write and I write and this is all I ever get out of it:

"The Human Wattage

Now, walk over to the bed. Pillow. Head.

I hope they get along tonight.
Jeff Winger: Guys, I wasn’t gonna show this to anyone, but, uh, it’s pretty profound. I kind of nailed it. If you want I can read it in the documentary. That is, unless you get Tom Hanks.

Entry title is a misnomer and a caveat hides within.

Done Googling definitions today.

I haven’t been keeping up, with emails especially. Getting there, I hope.

My memory of 1970 may be sketchy; but, my memory of last week is far worse. Where did I put my glasses? is a common utterance.

Health. *Worry* Inclusion? *Sad*

Ah... Delusion... My friend Death warned me about her/him/them.

How I know ‘mindspeak’ exists:

when the younger generation insists gif is and always has been pronounced like the peanut butter brand.

This is not the word you are looking for.

Do you suppose Animal Farm had dry-erase?

I know language is always changing. It causes cognitive dissonance for many people.

One several examples come from Shakespeare. Such as the word eyeball, he invented that. We certainly don't call "peek-a -boo" "playing Bo Peep" anymore.(The scene in Richard III where the king's advisor sneaks up on him uses the term "playing Bo Peep".)

I'm not saying everyone accepted it right away. It just illustrates that English has never been a consistent language. Even between continents things get pronounced differently. Ask someone from the UK how to pronounce the word Minotaur. I guarantee they won't pronounce it like an American.

Now here's my gif.(no matter how it's pronounced.)
Oxford accepts both pronunciations, so either is fine.

Why does nobody get wound up about JPEG? The P is for photographic, not potographic.

LASER isn't "lasser" even though the A is for amplification.

Acronyms are just weird ducks to begin with, and then there's other layers of pronunciation on top of that mess.
Wanted to respond to you, something like perfectly fine answers and left. Googled here, googled there, googled in my…and blip:

Only two hours of my life, but might get me published.

Response to the pandemic and events like this fully speak to our mortality (existentialism), feeling left behind in that wake.

Don’t linger in the dark past day break.

I truly wish you'd post more often as you've been 'quiet' around here. Remember "Shadows and Light"... you've won it before and for good reason. Regardless, good to see you post.
Hello Brian,
I stopped by and browsed today. Subsequently, purchased Such Longing, Kudos on the excellent reviews you have written.
Take care,
