  1. Skipper Dan Was Wrong

    For those not familiar with the refined, classy works of Weird Al Yankovic, please view this before continuing:

    I've heard this song dozens of times. I suppose I've enjoyed a bit of Schadenfreude in the listening, but something about it always disturbed me.
    Today, it came to me. Skipper Dan isn't a victim to be pitied. He's a pussy.

    Here's the deal: You give up, you lose. If Skipper Dan has really given up, I feel ...
  2. My yearly hair-cut....

    The time is rapidly approaching now and once more I am faced with the getting the timing right. I have always, in the past, waited until June, or even as late as July, but, as I've aged my hair doesn't grow back as quickly or as thickly as it once might have , before I know it, the Autumn months quickly followed by Winter are upon us and I need all the hair-cover that I can muster.

    I wonder if it will attract any comments this year. I shall have what is known as " the half cut ...
  3. New hair,new me...

    I find it amazing that just a little change can make a huge difference to your mind set. So today I went and got my hair cut back into a bob, for the last five years I have had long hair and not felt completly myself, however moments after having my long locks chopped off, I felt more like my old self. Yes, that's right folks I am even more positive and chirpy. Not to mention feeling freer.

    So here is my new look, rocking the natural curls today.

  4. Do Your Job

    do your job.jpg

    It is the job of the artist to tell the world what we feel in our hearts, even when the world has broken it.

    No Excuses. Just Write.
  5. Falutin

    Thinkest thee that
    thine own thyme,
    twine, and time most matter?
    Moist grey matter in-head, which does not heed to needs of others be-near, those deemed beneath except for those thee hold dear.

    Violets, tulips, and poppycock.
    Such is this tripe
    as garnish to
    the hollyhock.

    Goodness, be?
    Oh no, goodness me,
    no, what thou does
    thinkest is foul
    when set explinkest
    to custom curtsey scroll ...
  6. A New Transition

    It's been a while since I've been writing poetry lately and I still haven't been able to get back into the rhythm at all. But while I had been sulking in finding inspiration in writing I had a better idea for a novel. I am not sure if it has been done before but I thought I'd travel to South Korea to write this book you see it's about this half Korean half Ethiopian that wants to be a Kpop star and it centres around Ethiopia first and while most of the story flies around there it's about the trials ...
  7. Stone Mountain in Georgia

    Went to Stone Mountain today. It's a park in Georgia, next to Atlanta. We hiked the forest trail around the backside of the mountain. It was beautiful, big trees. bodies of water.

    When we were leaving I saw the bas relief style carving on the mountain face. Something like Mount Rushmore, but flatter. It was of Bobby Lee, Stonewall, and our bestest, and only President of these Confederate States, Jefferson Davis.

    You know, over in the nature park the roads were named ...

  8. Moving; Marrying.

    I'm in the middle of something of a transitional period.

    I'm moving to an interim location and starting to focus more on my income. I'm in the middle of a heated relationship which will likely end in a lifelong marriage and at LEAST six children.

    I'm experiencing a lot of personal changes as well, which is quite interesting.

    I'm turning 30 this year and I already feel like an old man.

    I need this to happen.

    I'm going to be ...
  9. Work and play


    "-The bosses at the next level up are incentivized to not fix things- it's the opposite. Fixing things involves cost and they are given bonuses to come in under certain numbers. So that's what they do: nothing.

    The customers call to complain and nothing happens. We're running skeleton crews and delaying any hardware upgrades." - talk around the campfire.

    Actually, it's a table. It's like camping except for we're not in tents, and we ...
  10. The Life of Olly

    I believe Christianity was born out of slavery from the Roman Empire and gave a voice to those crushed by others and while never believing myself I have been the seeker of my truth...for a while I've read Olly's teachings and have prayed to him every time I PM and he has always answered my prayer...I believe his writings our a digital binary 1,0 of how to life a life...Bazz Cargo has always been a Moses figure on here an he is off roaming whiltshire among his people an I pray to Olly to let him ...
  11. JWs

    For most of us it's just kind of a gag: "Oh, the Jehovah's Witnesses are approaching the door! Hide!"
    Lately, I've seen them set-up in static locations. In my case, I see them at the ferry terminal with a slick-ish graphic board and their ubiquitous propaganda fliers. I think they still push the Awake! and Watchtower mags, in addition to the two page pamphlets. The JWs look so happy. They probably are. But my experience with them was something other than pleasant.
  12. Spring garden

    I have been potting on pelargonium cuttings and planting out sweet peas. Spring is here at last and some decent weather, though things could still turn again, I have runner beans in the greenhouse I think I am also going to take a chance on planting out. If the weather stays reasonable they will be nice and early, if it is a bit shit I have some glass and fleece I can give them some protection with, and if it is really shit I have some more plants in the greenhouse, I always plant way more seed ...
  13. Waiting in May, 2018

    The first few days in May, before the leaves sprout on the branches and the sun is hot, leave one feeling as if in a place of disequilibrium. One might feel great joy at the anticipation of seeing a field of emerald, but confusion at sitting in the shade of leafless tree branches. The shadow casted over one’s head is of a spindly frayed umbrella. It reminds one of the long winter and the continued wait for more days to come of more unpredictable weather. It leaves one sympathizing with the ...
  14. April's Accomplishments

    Can't believe April is just about over! Where did the time go?

    While I accomplished a good bit of writing, I didn't get to play with poetry as much as I'd wanted to for the month. I'm still working on one that I hope I can pop in tomorrow last minute. If not, I'll just post it here or in the poetry section. Having trouble ending the darn thing.

    I finished the final draft of my young adult novel and have some idea of how I'm going to open the next in the series. I'd sort ...
  15. 13

    after listening to a storey on the radio i counted how many toilet seats i've bought over the years.....a woman went on social media to complain that she ordered a white toilet seat and ikea sent her a sky blue one..after complaining she was told they have never stocked sky blue toilet seats and someone suggested she might try to remove the protective blue wrap....
  16. An eventfull day...

    So today was far from a boring day at work, we had a poor customer that got herself stuck in a bucket swing (was fairly funny), we had a great laser party and then to top it all off i had to chase a goat...

    Yes you did read that right, I chased a goat.

    Just another day in a child's play center, fun times.
  17. My day is just zippy


    This is day (something , a number. I forget) of the new regime. So far the wall hasn't happened. Our original plan to round up all the gays and illegals, together, and put them in summer day camps, as suggested by millions of deep state, Deep South Twitter accounts (and from all the other racist memes) has failed to materialize. Where are the Nazis? It's weird, like they just left the country. No night of the long knives.

    The several hundred world famous stars and ...

  18. Random.

    It's 5 am April 24th 2018 and I've gotten next to nowhere since last time I blogged. I feel like my life is at a standstill. I'm still enjoying life as usual of course. However, I still have no job.

    Listening to PH8 to clear my mind. Prepared to do it all over tomorrow like today.

    Move forward with your life if you can. Being stuck is no good.

    Life requires maintenance, and I'm off-schedule.

    I'm going to bed.

  19. Poetry

    When I first came here it seems
    that prose was in ascendency -
    lately though most of the new
    members seem to be poets,
    and it's like poetry has risen
    in popularly. As a poet myself
    I find this a good thing but
    I wonder if it has anything
    to do with rising education levels.
    More B.A.'s perhaps?
    There's the joke that while business
    graduates are asking "how can I rise
    to the next level of the corporation" ...
  20. Hyperosmia

    You ever wish you had a super-power? If you did, I bet you wish it wasn't a super sense of smell.

    Well, I've been thusly cursed. At a ball game, I can smell the nachos three rows down. When I cleaned carpets, it sure came in handy. I had a painful, lingering sinus inflammation last year. So bad, my jaw even hurt. Don't know if it was related.

    But yeah, In the Marines, I could smell the other patrol coming 'cause some of their guys used too much cologne and bug ...
  21. OBJECTION! (An Old WF Exclusive)

    I posted this for an imagery poetry challenge back when I was still newer to the forum. I have yet to find the actual challenge, but I remember writing the poem based off of Godot's final storyline in Gyakuten Saiban's Trials and Tribulations episode.

    This was my second poetic challenge attempt, so I wanted to make this poem jump... here it is:


    "Objection!" you ...

  22. The Past is Real


    I was going through my soundcloud and found my old recording of my band's first live recording session at the studio we recorded our first demo tape at.

    I play the lead guitar/harmony (all the grainy and really loud guitar is me).

    This was our first single.

    I miss this song because it was a total enigma; I approached it as a melodic blacken'd death metal song, and the rhythm approached ...
  23. I'm going to be a billionaire

    So guys today I had this sudden thought I'd might be the next J.K Rowling because when I read my book over the course of a few hours I really started to feel like I may have a revolutionary book for the middle grade audience. I know that may seem like a stretch as most middle grade books don't reach like 500 million or 250 million copies but I want my book to reach 500 million copies for the childrens market. I really do feel like I earned it though with all the ups and downs with my life and everything ...
  24. What exactly, is an Albingesian? And where the hell is Waldo?


    Where's Waldo got its start in the late 12th Century. It seems the principle complaint was Waldo's "...contempt of ecclesiastical power".

    I stole that term, word for word, because it's such a mouthful. Just thinking about it causes all sorts of mouthy turmoil, so be careful. It's alright in this day and age, but was not so, earlier. Not for many centuries.

    Waldo was a wealthy man who came to the conclusion that a love of worldly goods ...

  25. Something I was curious about

    Lately today something had been festering in my brain about the fact there was this abundance of white woman with best-selling novels and that really got me thinking? Why are there so many of them? Since 2008 when I started writing this had me perplexed a lot, and in the early days when I was doing my writing endeavors the strange thing happened.. I wasn't getting published and I thought it had something to do with the fact that I was Ethio or whatever but now that I have gotten over the whole ethio ...
