Welcome to the official website of Brian Rule.

For the official website of Brian Littrell (no relation) please visit brianlittrell.com


Here you will discover a wide-ranging creative portfolio many years in the making. You will find articles, in the form of arguments, as well as poetry, photography, graphic design, fine art, and more, created or authored by me, Brian Rule. The thumbnails above are part of an on-going performance art/photography experiment. I loosely call it “GTL Guy”. Don’t ask. Or maybe you should.

On that, please note that some of the work presented is intended for mature audiences. Naming my portfolio “creative shit” and not “creative stuff” I think serves as fair warning. If you come to enjoy then please enjoy with an open mind. If you lack an open mind then please consider one. Happiness finds open minds.

Also, please note that while I do not intend this site for 2nd graders, to a degree, I will be writing this site description as a 2nd grader might. One of my widgets tells me that my “Flesch Reading Ease test” score is too low and that I should, essentially, dumb things down (it doesn’t like that I just used that big word “essentially”, or that I’ve used these parenthesis, or any phrases set off by commas, or words or phrases like “for example”, for example). Needless to say, I will not fool with this de facto stupidity test when posting my arguments, let alone my poetry; however, I will consider it for this page and this page alone. When it comes to the craft of writing, if there is just one thing that I hope my own writing encourages, it is for others to read more and in turn become smarter. Be better at reading. The widget really loved that sentence. I must say I do too.

Furthermore, I should note that the same widget states that the recommended minimum copy for this page is 300 words. 300 words is a lot if you are bullshitting. It is a lot if you are small talking. Fuck I hate small talk. Anyway, this explains I’m writing about why I’m writing this. I didn’t want to write anything for this page. It loves simple sentences. It loves dumb ones even more. It loves it when I use “it” and “is” and “was” in particular. It is depressing. But you know what? I’m over 300 words now.

Please visit the contact page with professional inquires, for general feedback, or for any reason really.

Thanks for visiting. Much love,
Brian Rule
