Spice Melange is a salmagundi of musings on writing, history, the world, time and space, art and design, music, film, science, language, culture, overlooked cultural moments and the evolution of the hive mind, as told by someone trying desperately to make sense of it all. Also: pie. And light bulb jokes.

This is my blog. I’m Chris Winters, a Seattle-based writer, journalist and musician. I’ve done the newspaper thing, the magazine thing, I’m working on a novel. This blog is a repository of stuff I’ve done and stuff I’m doing. Some of it might be a little strange, some of it might be a little off-color. That’s me. I’m a little strange, a little off-color. But who isn’t, really?
