in a vain attempt to try and get my online footprint unified, i'm retiring this journal after 12 years... it's been on life support the last few years anyway.

you can find me @ http://alex.vexed.ca here on out.

21/10/12 17:37 - We’re already in the aftermath.

In a fit of alcohol-related insomnia — I’m too old to drink anything with Redbull in it after 10pm — I finally got around to watching The Girl Who Leapt Through Time (Toki o Kakeru Shojo) — the anime that was a loosely made sequel to the original novel of the same name. It was [...]

25/9/12 06:13 - Every morning.

I have been writing the same stories in your absence. You already know this. I still think about that morning, tiptoeing by the foot of your bed, stepping over all those Cat Power albums that littered your floor. You always made such a pretty mess. Sometimes, I think about all the mornings we never had a chance [...]

8/9/12 18:20 - There’s a light in this tunnel, and I think it’s a train.

It was my birthday on Friday. I drove out to Montreal Friday night to hang out with an old flame. We ate honey garlic chicken wings, watched the Avengers, knocked back a 26er of Findlania, which led to many more terrible decisions thereafter. But at least they were fun terrible decisions. I haven’t slept in [...]

4/8/12 02:34 - Too much too soon.

‘are we just friends?’ i asked her point blank. ‘i gotta make things weird here because i’m sleep-deprived and buzzing hard on coffee.’ it was the first time i had spoken to her in a few days. we had been busy, leading separate lives that refused to connect. i had been feeling something of a [...]

she asked for an explanation. it was the hardest i had to think for a long time. she made it worse by sitting there, acting patient. of all the things should could have done — screamed, cried, throw a punch — she did her worst with a slow, measured, muted question. ‘why?’ a long time [...]

song of the day:  Margot & The Nuclear So and So’s – Jen Is Bringin’ the Drugs And Jen is bringing the drugs. She’s gonna get me fucked up. Cause love is an inkless pen. It’s a tavern, it’s sin. It’s a horrible way to begin.

29/7/12 19:26 - We no longer build monuments.

I guess the idea of making mixtapes has gotten pretty antiquated. In a high-bandwidth culture of à la carte and pick-and-choose and on-demand, we can tailor almost everything to suit our needs. We are free to experience the world solely on our own terms. But as much as technology has liberated us, I can’t help [...]

29/7/12 01:57 - Part of me always will.

I’ve always had an affinity for cool summer nights. Nights where the air temperature dips just a little below twenty celcius, and I can actually feel the weight of the atmosphere just wick off my bare skin; where dim porch lights and the faint whirr of distant traffic are the only clues that life exists [...]

28/7/12 22:37 - some day.

she’s just a stupid fucking girl, i think, stumbling slightly on tired feet in the haze of the breaking dawn. i dig my hands deep into my pockets for balance, only to find my phone there, automatically checking it to see if i might find her name on the display. i don’t. stupid girl. if [...]

she peeked around the corner. the dimming lamp hanging above lit her red hair on fire, and glinted its light off her eye. i recognised that glint only as mischief. ‘i can see you,’ i said. she feigned alarm that i noticed she was there. after stepping out into full view and dramatically placing her arms [...]
