Happy New Year! Don’t do anything stupid!– The Compass Family
A Third Letter to Akihito, The Emperor of Japan
Dear Akihito, What’s up, man? It has been a while since we last talked. Well, technically, we have never talked because I’ve only posted my letters to you on our blog and never sent them to you personally. Even if I did though, something tells me that you still wouldn’t get them. I’m not saying that you don’t care about insignificant people like me. It’s...
Anthony's "Interactive" Top 10 Albums from 2011
Well, the time is upon us now. I have to prove that I’m cooler than you by showing you what I consider to be the best music released this year. The selection process was very strenuous. I took a shower, managed to put one sock on before I remembered that there was beer in the fridge, and two Red Stripes later, the list presented itself to me. Keep in mind that this is purely opinion...
2012: A Link Odyssey
Holy fuck, everyone. This is not only the last official week of 2011, this is the last official week of the Compass as we know it. Everything is changing starting January 1st and boy oh boy, is it going to be awesome. For this week though, I’m not going to make any promises.

Wednesday Reblog: Our Unpaid, Extra Shadow Work →
“Technology and cost-cutting measures have created a multitude of tasks that used to be performed for us by other people.” An interesting article I read recently that highlights the changes in menial tasks facing our changing world.

Tuesday Tidbit: High-Bouncing Lover
The song I’ll be posting this Thursday — first of all, it’s going to be great. But as I was writing its lyrics, I realized how important the idea of color is in it. I’ve been saving the following three links for a while, until there was an appropriate time to share them. They all relate to the classic American novel The Great Gatsby, a piece of literature with what may be...
My internet is crapping out on me. I will get the posts up though. Friday and Saturday. Sorry folks
The Revolution Will Be Televised... then Tweeted
…then liked on Facebook, and Eventually Make it Here to a Links Post It’s less than two weeks until Christmas and working in retail, that means people are going insane. Today, I had a woman try to send something UPS literally 5 blocks down the road. Then she got angry when I tried charging her $10. That’s how crazy people are. So here are some links to try and forget about how...
Piece in Progress
So, first off I apologize, I know that I missed my links on Tuesday. It has not been a good week here. However, i refuse to go two months without posting something new, and something that is important to me. So today I offer you the first few paragraphs to my most recent short story. It is for now untitled, but it is inspired by and honors my grandfather, Raymond W. See of Mathias, West...
Guest Writer: Anthony Sabourin
Deep down in our minds, past all of our education, past all of the roads we’ve driven down, movies we’ve seen, faces of strangers, lies some of our earliest memories. We cannot willingly access this information. It shows up occasionally in dreams. We see rooms that we cannot remember, conversations, faces, weather, sounds, lighting, billions of tiny details that feel so familiar yet...
