two shorts @ jmww. balkanian figure skating is involved. so is a body of water called lake linville.
lake linville is a real lake in the respect that it is not a real lake. the lake's name is irrelevant. i'm joined by several recognizables: sean lovelace, ravi mangla, anne valente, etc.
i grew a beard over xmas. i shaved the beard and left a mustache. felt like i would/could be stylish if i lived in a place like columbia or ecuador. thought about moving to south america. pretended it was possible.
i kept my mustache for five minutes then shaved it away. wished i had a fuller mustache. wished i was a real man. wanted to fight real men. fought them. the battle rages on.
