Self-Loathing Nighttime Conversations

Honan has outed me. I started a Tumblr a couple weeks ago, while I was feeling depressed about the dating churn, the scenester complex, the image upkeep, the drunken plotting. I'm fine now! But I'm still updating it with occasional conversations: Self-Loathing Nighttime Conversations. It's ridiculously self-indulgent, so I don't recommend actually reading it; apologies to those who are excerpted.


There is something there. Most people will probably say that it's entirely obnoxious, but there is something there I think.

You'll probably hate this but it reminds me a lot of Coupland. Which makes it both old and irrelevant to all but a few of us. It has the same habit of making me sad and smirking at the same time.

Someone told me it reminds them of mumblecore. That depressed me for a while! Though this is probably a decent formula:

Coupland + emo = Mumblecore

You either spend a lot of time in bed or your pillow talk is just very bloggishly efficient.

Always date outside the scene.

I'm good at approximately 2.5 things. Pillow talk is one of them.

I read the first page
Was very entertained
Reminiscent of times I had
Fortunately not for a long time now
I am glad your better
Your a gifted writer
That is for sure...

this begs the question, just how many 23 year olds are you making out with?

Suddenly I realize why Tumblrs don't have comments!

Oh go on, don't apologize. That stuff is funny. I like the one where you tell her to follow you on twitter instead of calling her. The tone suggested a confused look on your face, standing there with your rumpled morning after hair, like you were really surprised she didn't know this. Ha!

Fucking brilliant.

Smells like parody.
