In Fear & Faith (A Poem, Not The Band)
I was afraid I was going to be the one who broke my heart. I was afraid I had messed things up for good. Well it turns out I’m safe. I was rescued from my temper, my anger, and my selfishness by a shape-shifting beauty. Sometimes she’s calm, warm honesty. Sometimes she’s powerful wisdom. Other times, she’s sultry intelligence. And at all times, especially the...

I'll Bet... (Beastie Trivia)
… That you know I’m a huge fan of the Beastie Boys. Well I bet you didn’t know what I’m about to tell you. Here’s some really cool trivia I learned about the Beasties. MCA (Adam Yauch) - Yauch has a studio/film distribution company called Oscilloscope Laboratories. - In 2002, he produced Build A Nation the comeback album for punk/hardcore band Bad Brains. -...
IDK What To Write
I turn off my mind as writer’s block impedes… … Goodnight, Zach
The writing on the wall is in blood. I can taste it, rust on my tongue. This room is battle-scarred. It’s covered in hematomas and heroine stains. This room belonged to someone’s death. 11/09/2010
It's Not All About The Numbers
“It’s not all about the numbers.” (Mike Hranica, TDWP) When will you all learn? The size of your home, the cost of your car, none of these possessions (obsessions) are significant to me. Nor do they resonate with God. You yearn for society’s upper tier, in their hierarchy of confused and lost souls. The quality of your diamonds are not as scrutinized as much as the quality...
(If) When The World Ends
The world was supposed to end today, but here I am disappointed. I wanted so badly for all of this to go away. The corruption, the pain, the meaningless deaths, and most of all the hate. I wanted for there to finally be peace. I wanted there to be love. I didn’t care about my outcome as long as you were safe. I would do anything to ensure the safety of your soul, even at the risk of losing...
For Once (a haiku)
For once I can breathe Without the pressure of you Standing on my chest
You've Made Me Hate You
And it disgusts me. Which makes me hate you even more. I do all I can to withstand the feeling. But it can not be repressed. Hating you infuriates me. This is one part of me (I wish) I could let go. But I don’t see it happening anytime soon. Sorry.
LA Noire Is Really Good
It’s been a while since I’ve played anything made by Rockstar. The last actually was probably Grand Theft Auto : San Andreas (which is an amazing game). But from the first teaser trailer to the release LA Noire has had me interested. The gritty, noire theme and the 50s setting had me stoked from jump street. I’m a huge fan of history based media, and the 50s happens to...
One Night : May 16th/17th
Last night I wrote an album. A full length, debut album from a band I haven’t formed yet. But that’s not the point. The point is that within the span of two to three hours I wrote nine songs worth of lyrics (the album would have one or two instrumentals). I was watching Control, a biopic about Ian Curtis and the last 7 years of his life. Those seven years obviously revolve...
Hail Mary Mallon - "Are You Gonna Eat That?"...
Aes, Rob Sonic, and Big Wiz deliver with their new group project debut “Are You Gonna Eat That?” When Def Jux announced it would no longer be releasing albums I wondered where Aesop Rock and label mate Rob Sonic would end up. Well I wasn’t surprised when I heard they were releasing stuff through Rhymesayers, but what did surprise me was that it was in the form of their new...
Another Good Day
Today was dope. I woke up and chilled at the house for a little bit. I got some creative writing done (thanks James for the compliment, I was pretty stoked on it). My girlfriend came to pick me up and we went into town. I got a $13 tattoo. Then I walked around downtown enjoying some art and the company of my beautiful girlfriend. After that we went to the skatepark for a hip hop/hardcore...
To my new followers, and thanks to everyone who has liked or reblogged any of my recent posts. You’re all awesome. Much love, and respect, Zach
Umm, all alone again Questioning myself minus the mills, and no phone-a-friend Insecurity zoning in, love for myself is growing thin, and it hurts like metal bike pedals blowing shins Ouch! Now I’m googling medicine like zoloft Brewing regimen of sex and sin with feminines as I go soft Potentially impotent with no cause It’s better to have loved and lost (that’s not the problem)...
Hail Mary Mallon
Aesop Rock has a new side-project out called Hail Mary Mallon. It’s a group consisting of Aes, fellow emcee Rob Sonic, and DJ Big Wiz. All three are insanely dope at what they do but most times (unfortunately) side-projects always end up kind of lackluster. Well not in this case. Aes and Rob coexist perfectly throughout the verses and the production is dope. The trio is signed to...
I have many problems (don’t we all) I deal with them in mostly healthy ways (mostly) I drown them in soda I cover them in ink I write them on loose leaf I draw and paint them on canvas I scream at them through hardcore I kick and punch them in mosh pits I speak to them through hip hop I laugh at them with friends It’s hard to see the (good) little things When the (bad) things are so...

I Have Artsy Friends
Most of my good friends are artists. It’s great to have people around me who inspire me to not only keep being creative but to also step my game up. That motivation is an awesome thing to have. I appreciate my friends who support me and my art whether it be with words or pencils/brushes or what have you. So here’s the links to my good friends who are good people and make good...
This Weekend (Fri. thru Tues.)
*Katie kind of already stole my thunder on this but here’s my telling of the tale. This passed weekend I went to SD for a well needed mini-vacation. I went up on Friday with Katie where we hung out with my mom for a few hours before meeting up with her family to stay in a sweet hotel. Friday was pretty chill besides all the animal commotion. Animal commotion being: my mom and sister...
I spent this lovely Tuesday hanging in San Diego and then driving back home to Yuma. I’ll update you later on why I was in SD but I just wanted to let you guys know that today was an awesome Tuesday. I woke up to breakfast in bed delivered by the most beautiful woman I know. Then we went down to Balboa Park and walked around the historic and cultural area taking in the sites. I love the...
