Picks of the Week

Man, I seriously got thrown for a loop last week. It was mostly the SEC's fault with nearly every game ending in some sort of crazy upset or topsy-turvy match-up. SoCar upended the No. 1 team, LSU actually went in The Swamp and got the job done, Michigan State gave my Wolverines a sore paw. Sheesh. That brings me to 37 out of 50 games, or 74%, which is still a respectable percentage I guess.

This week doesn't have quite the intrigue of last, but a lot of stuff will get clarified in the Big Ten after Week Seven's match-ups. With MSU hosting Illinois, Michigan hosting Iowa, and the Buckeyes and Badgers facing off in Madison, the opportunities for upsets are everywhere.

Let's get to it.

It's dead relatives people get hung up on when they start thinking about dying, particularly when they start thinking about dying in the self-inflicted sort of way.

No need to analyze this as the connection is obvious, and I mention it only because this evening I will kill myself. No worries. It's not a big deal, really. The thing is, now that I'm going to do it I realize I'd not thought much about Virginia in the days leading up.

Publication is Mine!

Hey. I got a short, short story that went live last month without me even knowing about it until right now. It's called "The Golden Age of Cinema" and my fine friends at Weirdyear saw fit to put it in print (code?). Thank you much, guys.

I hope you like it.

You can check out the story here.
