About Patch and this Blog
-I'm known on the internet as Patch.

It’s been back to the grind this week, so I haven’t had much time to write about anything of substance, but here are some disjointed thoughts and updates from the past few days. 1. This flat is awesome. I am … Continue reading
When I see an obvious omen, experience a ridiculously uncanny coincidence, or have any kind of intense ritual experience; my stomach does a little flip and all I can think is ‘wow, this shit is real!!’. ‘This shit’ has been … Continue reading
