The Man Who Left is a short fairy tale about a man sent to war, forced to fight incomprehensible battles in unknowable places for increasingly unclear reasons, who has become so weary and distraught by this life of constant toil and terror that it is only his dreams of returning to his wife and child that keep him sane. It's the 150th (and final) tale in my Thousand And One Tales project (previously on projects: 1, 2, 3, 4), which I originally planned to keep up for another 851 stories, but in the end failed spectacularly to do so. But still I tried... [more inside]
Destination: Mars is a 180-page graphic novel, that tells a tale of exploration, love and strangeness on an odd and incomprehensible world. Three people (and a cat) set out on a journey to Mars, only to discover that the world there is stranger and more dangerous than they could ever have known. [more inside]
This is part of an ongoing project called the (e) book of love. I was wondering what MeFites thought of it. Previously, someone called it "pious gibberish", which I sort of liked, that impression. It's a long-ish read, be warned. If you can't get past the first few paragraphs, let me know why that would be. Peace be with you.
This is a teaser for a new show I'm producing. We're in the funding stage, so more views = better chance of money to make an 8-episode series. I would love to hear your thoughts...would you watch this show?
This Valentine's Day read one last time your favorited* ex's tweets before letting them go. [more inside]
February is one of the slowest months for bike shops in the northern hemisphere, which makes it a great month for people involved with bike collectives to edit this wiki. Two winners will get an organic fair trade chocolate bar. My main goal in posting this to Projects is that I'm hoping you'll tell me if your local community bike shop needs to be added to the list of international community bike organizations. Since you're required to sign up to make an edit (which you're encouraged to do if you want), I would be happy to add it for you if you leave a comment.

Once upon a time I built an interactive map of single folks in the US to challenge a horrible terrible pop statistician. Now that my cask of young men's tears have run dry, I figured it was time to update it. [more inside]
I co-host this semi-weekly exploration of topics related to authenticity, self-improvement and love. In the first couple episodes, we discuss ideas like what's wrong with creeps, how to date for your future self, going on dates vs being in a relationship, and the like. The show has a strong voice, which I hope represents the earnest effort of two young guys trying to figure this stuff out.
