Remarkable Reads

These are fine examples of what literature is crafted to be. Take heed and take notice of their nuances and anatomy, for they are thunderbolts among this word-drenched thunderstorm.

Okay, brainteaser here. Is it cliche to say "that's cliche"? Discuss.

Artist's Statement 10/25/2011

Nic Swaner is a studying graphic designer, and a budding young writer whose concepts and syntax require a rush of blood and breath to the lungs. For inspiration he need not look far from the cyclopean sun, feel the displacement before the epilepsy, synthesize some synesthesia, or recall the origami folds his hands have memorized throughout the years.

Nic is almost entirely self-taught in the ways of writing and in doing so has created a style all his own. His medium is mainly through poetry, short stories and articles for websites; he excels in portraying his thoughts and ideas in a world of complex and harmonious verbiage. He is always whittling away at several works of writing that will be submitted to free publishers or magazines. Nic will always be happy to edit and critique your writing, whether it's poetry or prose. Contact him at

Nic is currently studying graphic design and the fundamentals of art. He has always emphasized the power of concept over complexity, and have maximized color and composition to their utmost potential. He prefers to work with photomanipulations and typography to portray his concepts. He is always open to critique from his peers. Other artistic endeavors from Nic include folding origami, film photography, darkroom artwork such as photograms, and music production.


Nic lives in Chicago, Illinois, but his hometown is Robinson, Illinois. He likes Progressive Rock and Underground Rap music. Marcus J. Ranum is his most adored photographer. Samurai Jack is his favorite cartoon character along with Ed, Edd, and Eddy. His favorite ice cream flavor is French Vanilla. He has a mild form of sound to color synesthesia for melodies and believes the song Echoes by Pink Floyd is green.

"The world is only as old as the person to whom you speak." - Nic Swaner

EDIT: oops, my bad SurrealCachinnation, I forgot to game while drunk gaming .

I survived the Super Bowl pizza blitz and everything that could have gone wrong went wrong, but we handled it gracefully well and managed to stay on top of things while under pressure. I'm very proud of myself for that right now.

And I'm also gonna be very buzzed and slur at characters in Skyrim soon, and that's a plus. I love to game while drinking, it's so much fun.

Journal History

Green Bay Packers and the Miracle in Motown

Events of the play

On the preceding play, with only six seconds left in the game, Green Bay was at its own 24-yard line. Green Bay completed a number of lateral passes until a penalty was called on Detroit Lions defender Devin Taylor for pulling Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers' face mask. Following the penalty, the Packers were awarded one last untimed play after the game clock had reached zero. After calling the play, all Packers' receivers ran towards the end zone and Aaron Rodgers broke right and threw a 61-yard (56 m) Hail Mary pass into the end zone. Tight end Richard Rodgers caught the pass, resulting in the Packers winning 27–23. QB Aaron Rodger's throw was so high that it nearly hit the rafters at Ford Field.
