About the Website

Ugly Stage is the writing blog of a guy who thinks he can also write poetry just because he reads a lot of it (and he was in a poetry-related club once).  Said ‘guy’ also moonlights as a purveyor and shining example of bad writing all around.  Surely, he is the image of bad taste. In a similar vein, the title of the website comes from a random name generator, where it was picked over such stellar and catchy titles such as “Zen Wax”, “Zero Sales” and “Had Image”, but barely over “Lower Trash”. It doesn’t have much meaning at all, but it will have some, somehow, some time soon.
