Be a Mean Fucking Fighter Jet

Total click-bait, I know. Sneaky, I’m not. But, shit–it’s the internet age. You have to practically slam people into oncoming traffic to get them to pay attention. Even to themselves. Especially to themselves. I won’t disguise this one in metaphor. The worst thing you can possibly do–and that which you do incessantly–is to poop all…

The New Sexy: Upgraded (2017)

  Here’s The New Sexy: Upgraded. (If you’re coming from my old site please scroll down to where it says, new.)

My Way Out

Yesterday, I’m lying in bed. Thinking. My life has been messy lately, starting with my inability to sleep with any semblance of normality. Couple that with not having enough money, needing it, not being able to find a job… and it led me to a thought: Wow. It sure would be nice to go crazy. …

My Freshly-Sewn Stitches: HEALED

  It wasn’t long ago that I wrote another blog post entitled, My Freshly-Sewn Stitches. You can read it here: https://alexobedblog.wordpress.com/2015/12/20/coping-is-doping/ It’s about an unrequited love story between myself and a woman that I had met online. I ended the post talking about how getting back in touch with her was akin to reliving the past pain of having…
