What I read when I'm not wonky eyed

I'm a bit of a band camper. I can't hold a tune or find a beat. I make jokes that only a few people understand. I used to drink like a frat boy, though I've mellowed considerably and it's been ages since my last Irish Car Bomb. I carry a book with me at all times. I often tell stories with little or no point. Every once in awhile, I find people who think these qualities are very endearing.

Why is it called Smoke and Ashes? There are two stories behind it. The one I'll choose to share: it's how I once referenced what was in my wallet instead of money, yet I still managed to go out and do amazingly fun things. This web site chronicles those things... at least some of them.
