What’s this site?
I’m a twenty something. You’re a twenty something (even if just at heart.) There’s a whole lot of pop culture out there, let’s share it. On this site you’ll find all the things that I think are interesting. Most of the time it’ll be television; restaurants and food; or random Internet minutiae.
What does AllMyLiesAreWishes mean?
First, it’s All My LIES Are WISHES, not the other way around. Second, the name is from ‘Ashes of American Flags’ by Wilco (Yankee Hotel Foxtrot). At the time I was starting the blog, I wanted a name that was good and angsty.
My bio (long version)
I am Justin and I work full time at Martino Flynn in Pittsford NY. The majority of my free time is spent watching TV, teaching myself how to cook, writing, attempting to read everything on the Internet, running my other blog, traveling to NYC, and hanging out with the likes of these people.
I like coffee, sarcasm, scotch, minute details, anticipation, bunnies, Spanish food, asymmetry, good grammar, the color brown, Asian food, history, photography, men’s fashion magazines, Dodge Chargers, smoking cigars, large vocabularies, faith in the supernatural, Rockstar energy drink, unrequited love, the arrogance of hip-hop, names, ginger, lists, Cape Ann MA, symbolism, black labs, silhouettes of trees, a good metaphor, efficiency, lilacs, diet soda and high thread count sheets.

Did you know?
The images at the top-right of the page are from a cycle of about fifty photos I’ve taken of my friends, family, and activities from the past few years. They’re randomized each time the page loads. If you see one you like and want to see it again, note the number in the file name. If you add that number to the URL as a query string
?ss=#, the page will have that image on it. For instance:
- #1 This is my dog Luke.
- #2 Luke again. He rocks.
- #4 My buddy’s dog, Berg.
- #6 My brother and Luke.
- #11 My gram and my mom.
- #12 A girl and a muffler in OBX.
- #36 A cool fireplace design.
Clicking on the image will bring you to this page which describes each image in more detail.
Same goes for the picture of me at the top of this page. There’s about 20 images total. Use
