“Fuck,” I muttered as I opened my eyes, furious that I had woken at all. I didn’t want to wake up. I was over it. An aggressive, unforgiving, bright morning light was the last thing I felt like. There’s that moment just before your mind kicks into gear that you’re still oblivious to everything that plagued your mind before you went to sleep the night before. There’s that moment of peace. It’s very fleeting — a couple of seconds before the reality of what being awake represents collides into your consciousness, and you are properly awake. There’s no point in trying to go back to sleep once this happens because the mind has already kicked into gear and all you can do is try to mitigate the panic, dread, and racing.
Nothing in Moderation is Clinton Fein’s first book scheduled for release in 2023.
Select articles and pieces from numerous publications and web properties, including Annoy.com and all the legal wrangling before the federal courts and United States Supreme Court, The San Francisco Chronicle, Electronic Freedom Foundation (EFF), First Amendment Project, The New Civil Rights Movement, and Medium.
From the Clinton years to the two Bush Administrations that followed, Annoy.com’s covers documented everything that happened and changed almost weekly.
Every image was accompanied by poetry that borrowed stole and repurposed everything from lyrics to familiar odes.
These are just a few of them.
