12 AlbumsMr. Jakob Dapper

Back in the days when we were all on Livejournal, these kinds of survey games were passed back and forth like so many Christmas cakes. The line “I nominate…” was always greeted, at least by myself, with dread and salivating expectation. I loved to inappropriately pour my heart out on the Internet yet dreaded how much time it’d […]

Day 1 without BowieMr. Jakob Dapper

Mon, 11 Jan 2016 19:19:38 +0000

Jakob got out of bed around 5:40 am, shuffled into the living room, turned on his laptop, shuffled into the kitchen to top-up the not-very-empty bowls for some very noisy cats. Shuffled back to the laptop, checked emails, logged onto Instagram. He noticed a lot of people were posting pictures of David Bowie. Odd. Noticed one was […]

Stone SoulMr. Jakob Dapper

Mon, 12 May 2014 16:20:04 +0000

May 12, 2014, made it four days since Jakob’s hat had been reviewed by a music blog and been found wanting. The bitter sting of rejection had since waned, but the memory of the assault on his ego was fresh enough in his mind for him to find himself returned once again to the fantasy of bludgeoning […]

A Week of BeesMr. Jakob Dapper

Tue, 29 Apr 2014 15:22:23 +0000

It had been a busy week for Jakob and on the morning of Tuesday, April 28th, he felt the effects of exhaustion and sleep deprivation quite acutely. The oil-pan brown coffee in his cup did nothing but mock him. On Sunday the 20th, he’d hosted the release party for an audio cassette tape which his music […]

Blood and SnowMr. Jakob Dapper

April has not been the cruelest month for Jakob, but it hasn’t been without its petty digs either. With small variations to audience size and general hygiene of the room, his cynical predictions for the gig at the Comfort Zone on the 10th were shockingly accurate. The problem with being pessimistic, he realized, is there’s no joy […]

PropositionsMr. Jakob Dapper

Thu, 10 Apr 2014 16:18:21 +0000

On the morning of Thursday, April 10th, Jakob detected only a mild foreboding upon the dark, oily surface of his espresso. The only sounds in the office were a hesitant typing several cubicles away and the pervasive hiss and thrum of ventilation fans. The day had gotten off to a quiet start for which he was thankful—the day promised to end […]

On a Series of Small and Inconsequential FailuresMr. Jakob Dapper

Tue, 08 Apr 2014 15:00:31 +0000

It was the morning of April 8, 2014, when Jakob Rehlinger, 41, antisocially hirsute and slightly overweight, sat at his desk in contemplation of his poetry blog. He decided, without regret nor relief, that yes, once and for all, he’d failed in writing one-hundred short poems within the one-hundred week time frame he’d allotted himself. […]
