GENRE diary-semi-autobiographical [see emerson quote] crude, rude, honest, forthcoming, fiction writing, filled with: For all intents and purposes of my thoughts it meant dark and mysterious. Opaque canvases overlapping one another and pigeons, shit, alcohol, pain and suffering, death, heart surgery, depression, capital punishment, seafood grime, the moon, Pegasus and punishment, felons, cyclopic prophets, darkness, hangovers, life as a cigarette, floral fortune tellers, cigarette butts, bums, alchemy, being broke and hungry, vanus, piles of shit, rats jumping ship, cocks and vaginas, time and death, money, Salem’s Route 455, women on the rag, fat chicks and beer guts, chlorine bombs, coke addicts, fucking pricks, drunks, orange rinds equated as being beautiful women, AIDs, ass kissers, fools and ships of them too, murky White Russians, demons and dark windows, Picasso and haikus were all pretty turbid topics. SYNOPSIS [PLOT] a conflicted confessional - - - tell me what you really think - - - in a world where everyone has to cover their ass, I aim to speak out! a youth’s observational, inward reflective disdain and amazement for the world brought about by questioning conventions of how we mostly live and what I consider mundane. a first person narrative and look at the human condition specific to life in boston and reflective moments in almost sole character. joe crowley story type - - - written in first person, where my character is not hidden in joe crowley. all other characters are strictly fictitious. In henry miller’s tropic of cancer, his chosen opening quotation: the novels will give way, by and by, to diaries or autobiographies – captivating books, if only a man knew how to choose among what he calls his experiences that which is really his experiences and how to record truth truly – ralph waldo emerson INTERIOR OF BOOK INTRODUCTION fronti nulla fides. Translation: no reliance can be placed on appearance. Bullshit! ‘’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’ VENI VEDI VICI ‘’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’ After they saw what I looked like, I came and saw too, and then conquered their convictions, their judgments and misconceptions. On second thought, I only will strengthen their preconceived notions, generalizations of my era and youth and overall disdain. At last, a story about us. Me, if it offends you, but I could care less. “Fill her up?” “Nah, just five dollars’ worth of- gasoline rainbow- just enough to keep the engine running.”
