Coming out of Hibernation

It was just feeling as though every axiom of your life turned out to be false. And there was nothing, and you were nothing – it was all a delusion. But you were better than everyone else because you saw that it was a delusion, and yet you were worse because you couldn’t function.

            -David Foster Wallace interviewing on why he dropped out of Harvard.

My brain is in the incipient stages of being able to process things again. If my yearly patterns of seasonal affective go-fuck-yourself disorder play out as normal, I’ll be interested in talking about stuff and things on a regular basis by April.

Hello blog. How are you? Neglected? Yeah…

Quick Dirty Jerz politics update:

Senator Lautenberg, who is quite possibly the most lucid relic of the Great Depression, has finally announced at the age of 89 that he’s going to retire. Mayor of Newark Cory Booker, who is actually a superhero, should slide right into the warm seat in 2014.

He probably won’t be ready for a Presidential bid by 2016, but how feisty would be a Booker/Christie debate be?
