Wow, this sucks. This morning my application to refinance my mortgage was denied due to my last year’s income of $18,000, which I was completely up front about at the beginning of the process. The fact that I can live on $18,000 in Los Angeles and maintain a high credit score and pay all my […]

There’s a giant, forty pound raccoon that pretty much treats our koi pond like the neighborhood sushi bar. He is forever trying to circumvent our expert security system. He’s such a jerk.

Kraken is a noir-ish potboiler with just a sneezing of Marxist overtones. No really. It’s just like that. Imagine the literary lovechild of Mervyn Peake and James Ellroy.
