Quoth the Raven
As I noted earlier, my original piece this week is one in honor of my sister Raven See. I apologize in advance, as this story is dense with reference. The better you know Raven, the more you may enjoy this little vignette. Writing it was a pleasure and I read it to her last night for the first time and she loved it; that’s enough for me. Here you guys go, please enjoy and let me know what...
The Shawshank Linkdemption
With 1 year under our belt, we here at The Compass are feeling pretty fucking good. Pardon my language. Like Paul and Anthony, I’ve also just returned from my own voyage. I went to Philadelphia, Connecticut, and Lake George NY. It was a blast, and my creative juices are flowing. I finally read Breakfast of Champions by Vonnegaut and The Road by Cormac McCarthy. I’m also two...
I realized yesterday that we should be coming up on the one year date of the beginning of the Compass. So I looked and it’s actually today. Unfortunately we all have been too busy to realize this, let alone come up with any sort of celebration but I would like to take this time to say thanks to everyone for reading, looking, liking, reblogging, and following us. We truly appreciate all the...
I Was Young When I Left Home
The other day, we took our last drive together. The final milage was 106,282 miles. That day felt like your last day. You were as loud as a jet that day. It was like driving a pet to be put down. I can still see you on Google Maps. I went all over the country with you. We just drove to Montana. The trip before that, we drove to Sarasota and we broke 100,000 miles together. You have been...
Army of Ancients
“You have what?” “An extra tooth in the back of my mouth.” “You mean like a wisdom tooth? We had those removed.” “No. Like a baby tooth that never descended. He showed me the x-ray. I had no idea it was even there.” “Then why is he removing it?” “I don’t know. Maybe their anniversary is coming up and he wants to take...
Interstate 65 North
Tired. Strung out. Haven’t showered in five days. But happy. Happy it happened and happy it is over. Great things cannot last forever. There is no moon and very few stars appear in the night. There are more constellations made from insect corpses on the windshield. Construction lights and the glamour of Nashville are too strong. The binary star systems are definitely invisible. I...
Link Free or Die Hard
Hi everyone! My name is Anthony! You may not remember me but I am part of this website as well. I have been driving all around the country these past few weeks, making it impossible to post things during my proper time. Unfortunately, I have no new material to post nor time to post it. Just kidding. I have all new material to post and plenty of time to post it. Three pieces are nearly done...
Tuesday Tidbit: Support American Musicians
I try to create a subject line that fits all of the topics I include on Tidbit Tuesdays. This one isn’t completely inclusive, but it fits most of them. Check out these links! 1) Have you heard of Kickstarter? No? Well, it’s this novel website devoted to supporting creative people and their work. Basically, if you want to do something creative — like press a record on vinyl,...
