  9. It’s been quite a while since I last posted on here, but I’m feeling pretty expressive lately. My friend Anthony took this picture on a recent outing he went on, and I decided to use it to add some context to some things that I’ve been feeling lately.Traverse.
Lost inside a fading woodBrush and smell of ages pastWorn remains of pathways stoodWhere leaves have fell to rest at last
Growths of maple, oak and pineStrewn above the footprints therePerhaps the most surprising findStruck me as why but not as where
Thoughts of past travelers subsideAs grief transcends my being hereGrassy wood nor summer skyBrought me peace of passing fear
Loneliness has always madeHoles in woods where brushes fadeSo past walks in these woods, aloneHave led me on my way back home.

    Traverse.

    Lost inside a fading wood
    Brush and smell of ages past
    Worn remains of pathways stood
    Where leaves have fell to rest at last

    Growths of maple, oak and pine
    Strewn above the footprints there
    Perhaps the most surprising find
    Struck me as why but not as where

    Thoughts of past travelers subside
    As grief transcends my being here
    Grassy wood nor summer sky
    Brought me peace of passing fear

    Loneliness has always made
    Holes in woods where brushes fade
    So past walks in these woods, alone
    Have led me on my way back home. 

  10. I stay up late for a reason. Simply put, I’d like to think that the creativity I attempt to harness at 3:30 in the morning is worth something; something that I will eventually be able to channel into a career. I can’t seem to come to terms with the day until I write something about it down. The desire to turn my own personal human condition into something that I can market and share with complete strangers is something that I do not hold alone, but I’m beginning to actually believe that I may want it just a little bit more than the other guy. This feeling I share with others may eventually evolve into competition, but nevertheless, it is something that nobody can take away from me. I’ll keep my uniqueness as close to me as possible, because I feel it may be the only shot I have.

    Is that why I want to make so many statements on a publicly received level? Will each song be a point in an album that takes the place of a public address, all in an effort to make sure the world knows that Mike is his own entity? Do I even have enough of “it” to make a name for myself?

    "Dear Earth,

    You don’t really know me that well - erm, at all - but I am one of your biggest fans. You’re a pretty ‘bitching’ venue (excuse my french) and have held a lot of sweet events. It would be really something if I could get on stage with you sometime and we could both share the spotlight.

    Your future Co-Star,
    Michael “Michael Arthur” Koenigsberg.”

    Comparing the mindset I once held before college to the views I hold today, I realize that I used to believe I knew everything that mattered. Now that I have finished college, I now feel…completely the same. The only difference is that 10 seconds ago I had an epiphany that I may be in the same boat as every other 21 year old who is arrogant enough to try and be famous. Celebrities are people too -  it’s clearly my job to make an honest woman out of Mila Kunis.

    I suppose since I just documented the aforementioned realization, that should be all I need to come to terms with the day. Time for some shut eye - lets hope that gentle breeze of arrogance gets me to where I want to be.

  12. As my roommate Mark and I were driving around the outskirts of Kingston, NY this afternoon, I found this gem at a garage sale that was in the process of ending. The owners of the property gave the above “Neuromuscular Training: Baseball with Rod Carew” to me for free. Released by Sybervision Systems in 1985, it came complete with four double-sided cassettes and a VHS tape. It smells like the failed aspirations of Kurt Russell.

    So apparently, this adorable miniature-sized commandog (see what I did there) had a significant part in the recent ownage of international hide-and-seek champion Osama Bin Laden. I know you’ve heard enough about it already, but this post is here for a much more important reason. I know you’re probably deciding whether or not this canine’s eye-wear is the most adorable thing you’ve ever seen, but let me make the decision for you: They’re called “Doggles”, and they are in fact the cutest thing you’ve ever encountered.

  15. A short film I recently watched that was shot and produced by a man named Lorenzo Fonda. Simply put, I find this video to be cinematically beautiful. Grammatically speaking, I am quite sure that cinematically is not a word.
