  1. A Rogue Criticism of "Rogue One"

    Well this is precisely what I anticipated with Disney acquiring the Star Wars franchise.


    The beating and flogging of a pasture full of decaying, vile, horse corpses.

    Before we get to the one in the picture above, let's just say that 3/4 of the Star Wars franchise has revolved around the Death Star (no, turning the Death Star into a "planet" requires the creativity of a five year old). But Jar Jar Abrams says the purpose ...

  2. Unmotivated

    Officially working five days a week, eight hours a day, and that doesn't appear to be changing any time soon. I did prefer four tens, as having that third day off was quite nice.

    Then again, all I ever did was waste my days off anyway. Never spent them how I knew I should; making some tea, writing, reading, going to Starbucks and writing. Never signed up for that U18 indoor soccer league. Never did a lot of things. Instead, whenever I get on my computer to check this forum, I just end ...

  3. Drama Exhausts Me

    I've finally figured that out.

    It isn't so much that I'm anti-social or introverted after all. Really, it has more to do with the fact that socializing by nature means more drama.

    I'm done sugar-coating things, so I'll just dive straight into this.

    There's a girl, named Angel of all names (definitely must be the looks, not the personality), who has more or less of a booty-call relationship with our friend Anthony. They used to date, but not anymore, now that ...

  4. If Writing Were a Person Right Now

    He'd be the most terrible person, I'm sure of it.

    It'd be a worker at my office. See him every day taking donuts for a family of three, taking the last cup of coffee from the pot, smiling to me as he walks by without a hint of sympathy. Just turns his back so I can stare at my reflection in that balding, shiny head of his.

    All I want to do when I come to work, is do my job, and leave. But everything he does, and everything he is, makes me want to do something unthinkable ...

  5. What I've Gleaned from this Election

    My thoughts, in no particular order.

    From reading and listening to people go back and forth, the amount of ignorance bouncing around the walls of hollow-headed echo-chambers is astonishing. This applies to people of all political leanings and affiliations. It's fascinating to see people surround themselves with "facts" that support their predisposition and bias. "Evidence" and "arguments" that support their warped world view, because it makes them feel ...

  6. A Triumphant Return

    My goal of going on indefinite hiatus was not to garner attention, despite the pretentious title of this blog post in particular.

    However, I was very appreciative of all the kind words that people left on it. I'll be honest and say that, while I didn't post anything, I came back after only a week and was already checking in on things. Not just on my blog, but the forums in general.

    I knew I would return, I just didn't know when.

    Calling this a "triumphant" ...

  7. Taking an Indefinite Hiatus -- A Criticism, and Thank-You

    I don't know for how long.

    This forum has been the best and the worst thing to happen to my writing. I'll start with the positive.

    In my personal life, I've known almost nobody who shares my passion for writing. I do have a couple friends that like to dabble in the dark arts of poetry or short-stories, but I always felt like I was taking it more seriously than them. Not saying that in a bad way; I simply felt that they saw it as something to do in their free-time, a hobby. ...

  8. Feeling Bad

    It just hit me a few minutes ago. How bad I really feel about this cute girl I knew, who I went on a date with, and she was a compulsive liar. Not only that but she definitely suffered from something else going on in that head of hers, and I don't mean that in a mean way. I think part of me wanted to help her.

    The date (it's been almost a year since) was a mistake. Her friends later told me that she'd spent time in a psych ward. I felt absolutely horrible, because I know how it feels ...

  9. People Need to See This

    Very interesting!

    It's 100% accurate. I would know, being a guy and all.

  10. Encouragement

    If you need encouragement to do something... if you literally cannot do it without constant reassurance, then take this as a good sign it may not be for you.

    That's not to say encouragement is a bad thing. We all love encouragement, and should strive to give it to others who deserve it! I mean, that's why I post some of my work on here. I love seeing the "Likes" and "Thanks" on my work as much as I appreciate the constructive feedback.

    But my primary ...
  11. My Favorite Scene From the Movie "Black Hawk Down"

    Oh wait...

    Sort of makes me want to move to Russia, or any place where police are respected. This kind of shit shouldn't be tolerated. Hopefully it'll be met with ruthless lethal force like it should be.

    Then again, I've always been a fan of autocracy and Machiavellianism as long as I'm on the winning team.

    In all seriousness, it makes me wonder. If race relations have been set-back 50 years under a black ...

  12. About Love (inspired by kamino)


    I think that some of us have this idea in our heads, called "The One". At least, I know I used to.

    On the surface, it's sort of clear why this is a bit of a disastrous idea.

    While applying logic to love is a messy business, scientifically and mathematically speaking I find it hard to believe there is only One person out there for us.

    How about Exhibit A: You hit it off with somebody. The relationship lasts ...

  13. Removing Social Media and How It's Helped Me

    So in the past few days I've deleted my Twitter. I've uninstalled Instagram from my phone (my Instagram still exists, but I'm not going to use it), and I'm very close to deleting my Facebook.

    Now, this isn't some sort of conspiracy-inspired action. It's something that's making me... happier.

    Twitter was just a huge waste of time, strangely because I didn't have the time to begin with. I didn't have the time, want, or need to go through all these tweets. I didn't want to ...
  14. Breaking the Geneva Conventions

    I'm my own worst enemy. Maybe the only way to fight it, is to break the Geneva Conventions and use some chemical warfare. Take some pills. I told myself I wouldn't do it...

    I was seeing a therapist; that stopped around the beginning of this year. I think April.

    I feel like I can't write lately. Suddenly it's like everything I type, everything I write, I hate... if I can even write at all; I've felt so unmotivated lately, and no amount of trying to force myself to write ...

  15. Why I Admire Jim Adkins


    Realized the picture is a little small, so I'll type it out below. This is something Jim Adkins (lead-singer of Jimmy Eat World) posted about their new album, and I thought it was very good advice to share.


    "It is about throwing away your default responses to life, accept life on the terms of life and becoming willing to accept the best any of us have is to be in a state of progress.

  16. Handling Anxiety (and finding happiness)

    Hope this helps somebody, and that you have a good day.


    The clock.

    Every second of every day it dictates what we do. And it's a constant reminder of the time that is passing. Or rather, running out.

    "How am I spending it?"

    "What more could I be doing with it?"

    "When will my time be up?"

    All typical thoughts that cross my mind, as I sit at home playing video games, after ...
  17. "But They're Just a Loud Minority"

    Oh are they really?

    Basically, we need to start reading "The Little Boy Who Cried Wolf" to our children again.

    So for a long time now, I've been exposed to the No True Scotsman fallacy. If you're unfamiliar, it's basically an attempt -- in this example -- to refute my argument by saying that "real feminists wouldn't do that!" This flawed argument can be exposed in more detail by reading the Wikipedia ...

  18. Good News

    That's right! For once, I'm not posting something provocative or depressing!

    Zac Farro is back in Paramore!


    He's the guy with the hat.

    I'm already well aware that I'm literally the only individual on this website -- as well as the only individual I know in my personal life -- who gives a shit. That's how it is with most things in my life, in fact. But, the reason why this is "kind of a big deal" as Ron Burgundy ...

  19. Timmy Hoes

    Lately I've been going to Tim Hortons after work, which might seem weird considering I get off at ~1:00 AM.

    I go to the one just down the road from where I work, and I usually get a small double-double, although today I decided to get their new Twix Iced Capp, which was pretty good considering they'd run out of whipped cream.

    But what I actually love about this place, is the guy who works the night-shift drive-thru.

    He starts off with, "Hey, what's good?" ...
  20. Full Circle

    I thought we could still remain friends, at least.

    Now I know how it feels to be blocked out of the blue by somebody you cared about.

    All those times I did that to girls before...

    The pain is two-fold: in knowing what I inflicted on others, and in experiencing that first hand.

    Life goes on, I guess. Live and learn.

    Disaronno and Coke.
  21. Thinking About Starting a(nother) YouTube Channel

    I've started a YouTube channel before. Two, to be exact. Some of it makes me cringe hahaha.

    The video I'm most proud of still would probably be this one:

    I'm not making this blog post to do some sort of advertisement. Hopefully this doesn't break the rules or anything.

    The reason I'm making ...

  22. The Only Thing George Orwell Got Wrong Was The Date

    Did you want to live in a world of newspeak? Did you ever want to go back in time to a dystopian alternative-reality of the year 1984?

    Just go ahead and support the regressive social justice movements! No more jokes. No more offensive language. No more calling people Mexicans even if they're from Mexico. No more complimenting women.

    And if you call now before the end of this government funded commercial, you can rent your OWN safe-space for just $4.20 a month, or buy one ...

  23. When Others Can Say it Better Than You Can

    *for those of you who don't have audio, don't have the time, or possess too short of an attention span*

    Mike Wallace: Black History Month you find...?

    Morgan Freeman: Ridiculous.

    Mike Wallace: Why?

    Morgan Freeman: You're going to relegate my history to a month? What do you do with yours?
    Which month is White History Month?

  24. Opposites Attract

    I've done some reading about the Yin-and-Yang - mostly from Sun Tzu's Art of War - and I've read some things about the Tao, as well as looked into the teachings of the thinker Alan Watts. They all teach an idea of balance. Click here to check out Greyson's blog on that.

    It seems as if when things are going right in our lives, is the moment that evil decides to strike. We get ourselves a new job, a new car, have a good time with some friends, and suddenly something bad happens.

  25. Can I Say?


    When I bought Travis Barker's book, co-authored with Gavin Edwards, I wasn't really sure what to expect.

    I've been a fan of blink-182 for a very long time. Their music has a special place in me. But you never really get to know too much about the band members, besides reading between the lines, in interviews or on their social media.

    What I've found is that they're truly just as human as we are.

    Now that's not to say ...
