Hello my dear, dear friends, What a wild ride it has been indeed, lo this long and dreary month of February. It was cold again, then nice again, then we had an ice storm, then the wind blew so hard I truly thought we would die. The Night Of The Dread Winds I slept nary […]
Well this year’s snubs n’ flubs season rolled around and I didn’t even realize it was Oscar night until Steve texted me instructing me to be at his house by 5:00. Like most sane people, I have a love-hate relationship with the Oscars that I would describe as 99% hate and 1% love, with a […]
“The T-shirt is the ‘lowest form of self-expression.’” He can’t quite remember where he read it, but that idea sticks in Eric Mast’s mind as one of the interests behind Dreem Street.

Hey! Somebody wrote to ask me for ADVICE! I really enjoyed this one. I lived vicariously through that dude for a second. 26 and just starting out on this adventure of life! What a glorious time! I’ve been doing a lot of card reading. I love my cards so much. It is so helpful to […]
Dear Yours Truly, I am a 26 year-old male in need of some advice. I have two different life-problems, but they’re somewhat related. So here goes: My first problem has to do with a general…malaise. Perhaps I should start at the beginning. In High School,and to some extent University, I was like some strange cross
My parents just celebrated their 40th anniversary! Because the nature of the parent-child relationship is that of unending self-sacrifice to overweening narcissism, and because it remains essentially impossible to truly imagine your parents having a life before you came along, I can only keep thinking of it in terms of myse
this Elizabeth Kolbert series about extinction is BLOWING MY MIND. I think this is the most important thing I have read since I learned how to read. It is actually amazing because just a few weeks ago we were wondering suddenly about what ancient people thought when they found fossils. Like, did the Greeks find […]

My old man is in a deep dissertation zone, under a heavy and scary deadline that he can barely talk about without getting sick. I am fully on board with his plight and am trying to be supportive in the only way I know how, which is to just try to be quiet and make […]

Their first show was opening for Television. An auspicious start. The also played with The Wipers and recorded and released records [...]
Am now back from in-law family reunion by a lovely mountain lake in which I swam like a little seal. Being around really religious people is always strange for me, since I grew up wholly heathen, with barely even a tiny amount of lip service ever paid to that way of life. And even my [...]
