THE Anniversary: What Dreams May Come?

THE Anniversary: What Dreams May Come?

Our 5th Anniversary You may have noticed I was not in for last week. We aren’t doing the old number quite yet so I’m certain that far fewer of you know how this usually works. The week of the anniversary for Words Don’t Do It Justice I go away. Usually for planning, but also because life tends to get in the way and I write the post ahead of time to get ready for the day of. This year was a bit different. March 4th was a weekend. And I told you no more weekends. So I took off to Read more »

Go with me here…

Go with me here…

Short blog today. I’m getting ready for a very special piece.   So when I was in high school random tv shows were kind of standard. I studied with the TV on in the background. I’ve always kinda done that. Which makes my memory very spotty when it comes to whether or not I’ve seen something. It also has a separate clause in the law of unintended consequences. I have random bits of episodes that just pop into my head at times. One of which starts today’s piece. Feel free to figure out the show name and tell me whenever. Read more »

And now…A new hour begins

And now…A new hour begins

Your brain is feeding you correct information, I assure you. That weird feeling in the back of your mind that says this can’t be happening is, in fact, incorrect. You are here, reading these words. And as it were, so am I. I’ll let that sink in for a moment. You deserve it. Crazy how life goes. For 3 years my Monday schedule included frantically editing and prepping the piece I wrote over the course of the last week. And then getting it shared all over my various social media sites. Stressing over content. Straight up harassing my writers until Read more »

And now we come to…the end of an era

And now we come to…the end of an era

Today, oddly enough was supposed to be the pay off FINALLY for a number of posts about relationships that I thought might be better than all my previous ruthless on relationships post. And indeed I’ll get to that later.   Instead, Today is a day I bring us to a place I knew could happen, but was happy every time it didn’t. Today we end the hour for the last time. What do I mean? Today is the beginning of a goodbye party. For this blog. Oh it will continue to exist, but a transition is afoot. And so with Read more »

And now… at the end of the hour

And now… at the end of the hour

This week we debuted a brand new podcast with a livestream. We said goodbye to one of the founders. We tackled coons, and hoteps. As well as assault, and the HIV & AIDS treatment drug Truvada.     I skipped a couple lines to let that sink in. When this started I literally just wanted to take my usual facebook ranting to a website. I figured it would be like the old days of my Xanga page. Now, now I deal with potential sponsors, have production meetings, worry about our average listening and reading time, and look for brand expansion. Read more »

Decorum Deficiency Disorder: Them Dresses Though… *Face Palm*

Decorum Deficiency Disorder: Them Dresses Though… *Face Palm*

Let’s talk current events. Why… when there are so many more important things going on in the world worth discussing… is my Facebook feed full of posts about the dresses celebrities wore to their respective awards shows? Why are people really wasting energy asking entertainers to speak out about issues that have nothing to do with what we keep them around for: entertainment? Why are we looking to otherwise insignificant and irrelevant people for guidance on things that are very important and significant? Have we really become so… addicted to entertainment that we can’t even stand up for an issues without having Read more »

Words Don’t Do It Justice: YOU are Forty Thousand Strong on our 2nd Anniversary

Words Don’t Do It Justice: YOU are Forty Thousand Strong on our 2nd Anniversary

Words Don’t Do It Justice “It was all a dream. I used read word up magazine.” I could keep going with that, but really I don’t feel like quoting too much of anyone else today. So let me address this with the style most comforting. When this all began it was an idea. The thought that we could give the world something in this blog that would be read by our friends, maybe a few co-workers and classmates. And every once in a while I’d get to deal with the issues I have to face on a daily basis by Read more »
