Site icon Scope & Horror


I would describe myself as eclectic in tastes and interests and somewhat inattentive. Less generous descriptions may include messy, inscrutable, and a tendency towards clutter and ennui that can make it uncomfortable to share space with me. In addition to  Scope & Horror, I have a satiric wellness blog, Your Bitcoin BMI: Increase Your Resale Value, and I draw cartoon series about a kitten named Christopher. Current for-real items on my to-do list are to finish memorizing the hiraganakatakana, and kanji alphabets, work on calligraphy, and make friends with a crow. I collect ephemera, particularly board games and trading cards, Patron Saint prayer cards, vintage hotel postcards, photographs of swimming pools and divers, science textbooks, fortune-telling decks, encyclopedias, shadow boxes, maps, and all sorts of things in miniature. I love bookmaking, poetry, music, comedy, painting, mythology, folklore, graveyards, crinkly paper, and junk shops. You can see more of my stuff at www.theanatomyofmelancholy.comEclectica Magazine, and Medium. If you are very curious, canonical forms of this blog date back to 2006, and old links can be found here and here

Very little of this work contributes to my primary source of income, and my bank balance reflects this.
