  1. Parking lot rage....

    Why do people walk down the middle of the parking lot driving lanes? Seriously, I will never understand why people are so self absorbed that they don't realize that others have to wait for them.

    Damnit, I just lost a spot I was working towards...

  2. Buy a Helmet

    "Life sucks, buy a f-ing helmet!" Denis Leary

    Another helpful PSA from your buddy, Winston.
    Seriously, now more than ever, be ready for stuff to just 'go bad'. I've written extensively here in my Ponder the Unthinkable series regarding Survival and SHTF procedures. 2012 / Mayan apocalypse came and went, people moved on. But don't get complacent. Enjoy the good times, but be ready for the bad times. The next downturn / setback may be closer than you think. ...
  3. My-ku (Haiku-ish....)

    Dripping with blood
    the tyrant of all men,
    the human heart.
  4. fire season

    The pattern is always the same. Basically it's an arc of land created by the wind. You start at a single point/ the origin point- and spread out by about 30 degrees. The winds drive it that way : south/ south-west.

    That's our pattern, I've personally witnessed it many times. If you're close enough to the origin point it will pass you. The further south ( in the fuel supply areas) you are, the more at risk. The arc, the piece of 'pie' can get very wide by the time you get to the crust ...
  5. Dreadmill

    I don't want to go outside today. I woke up just after noon, and the first thing I did was put on a YouTube video of Joey Diaz talking about the dark side of comedy. I guess we all have those dreams of being isolated on a remote island. Difference is I felt I had a chance to do it once and I regret I didn't do it better. Anyway, that "no man is an island" stuff, it doesn't make sense to me. Preached by post-war Britain female school teachers who you are supposed to submit to as Miss, meanwhile ...
  6. sorry

    I'm walking along an I'm thinking..how can you hate someone and love them at the same time.This couple passing me by now,are they feeling the same..look happy enough,then again everyone I see is having a great time and it's just me who's miserable.Been going on far to long all this,screaming,shouting,lovemaking and stress.I love her,I hate her,she cry's .I leave walk around for a while go back and say sorry.Sorry is all I say these days to everyone,couldn't make it,sorry,sorry but I'm running late.Things ...
  7. Commitment

    I'm not in control of anything.

    That's what the man said.

    And I get it, sometimes. But I don't feel they get me. And so if I complain about that I literally don't exist.

    What are you on about boy?

    I've done been mentored
    I never had emotional support from my mother
    How the fuck have I survived

    Writing shit on the internet

    I'm better than that

    Am I

  8. power

    she lay her head on my shoulder and stopped crying and i felt strong. I did not want to make her feel safer or cared much how long she would take before she lifted her head. A woman in distress makes me feel powerful. She waited for my words,she listened before deciding to talk and i did not care.She got up and walked into the bedroom and i could hear her crying behind the door.I looked down and there was wet make-up on my t-shirt. I opened the door, she looked up from the bed and as i walked to ...

  11. I Wonder...

    If the modern scheme in storytelling is that the author writes half the book and the ending. He introduces obscure mysteries, gives half the answers, ends the story, and then generates three decades of controversy where fans compete to flesh out parts unsaid with constant speculation and theories.

    In such a way a story is as enduring as the idea of God because we know so little, but believe in it so strongly and deeply, that we create the God we seek more than we find it.
  12. 5:30 am commute


    I saw her there again this morning. Two shopping carts with a tiny lump under a blanket on the sidewalk. You could mistake that there was no one there.

    "The meeting takes place somewhere public- that way no funny business." She's on the busy street side of the corner 7eleven. It's brightly lit- No bushes. The front is parking lot -no room, the back is an alley where a homeless guy was beat nearly to death.

    It's a jungle.

  13. Habakkuk 2:2-3

    I always received these
    Clear vivid images
    In my dream eye
    Of performing
    As a professional footballer
    On the highest level

    I write plain on tablet

    Maybe I should buy a gun

  17. Thorn-buried

    It was her glazed over eyes. I went in like Mike Tyson. I intimidate with eye contact. Dominate the room. I don't think that they handle me ever again. I felt unfortunate for her, caught in the crossfire. But I despise who she works for, and what the system stands for, and how it expects me to be a good boy. How far did that get me. It was her glazed over eyes. I knew I had lost her. I felt sorry for her. I am too caring.

    I need to be ruthless and dominate. And like a Lion, poked one ...

  18. The Great War, 100 Years Later

    Veteran's Day is coming up, a day that used to be called Armistice Day.

    100 years ago, one the bloodiest conflict in human history ended with The Treaty of Versailles. The Armistice was signed between The Allies and (what remained) of the Central Powers. It was a "victory" for the allies, but at such a cost. The term Pyrrhic is hardly adequate.

    Much of the primary source material from that time is hard to digest. Grainy black-and-white video and biased ...
  19. And it's done

    Referencing Post

    I was told:

    Don't do it.
    You'll be wasting your time.
    Scrap it all and start over.
    You need to be working on 'forward-writing'.

    Like I said in the other post: as I age, if I get the notion, an idea to do something- and someone tells me not to do it- I’m still doing it. And it's done.

    For the last year, my focus has been on, not so much sorting my writing drive as it was eliminating the clone files. Today, I ...
  20. joy

    I've been discovering the joys of the 'ignore' feature recently. Far more enjoyable than getting annoyed by certain mindless members. I suppose I had been afraid of 'missing something'...but, yanno, I ain't missin' a thing.
    The internet is the home of the ill-informed hot take, so I shouldn't be surprised.
    On the other paw, I have two books coming out around the end of this week -- both of them are specfic/horror anthologies from Planet X Publications.

  21. Soiled


    I drank too much last night
    dreamed of electric sheeple
    shooting tv's and doctors,
    throwing Zanax and roofies
    from second floor
    bedroom bath windows
    on to metal roofs,
    pachinko-tinkling down pipes
    out to the lawn
    where squirrels waited
    coming down out of the trees
    rodent hands sorting/plucking
    from in between green blades,
    grabbing, gobbling, or
    cheek stuffing
    the abandoned ...

  22. Where I Am

    This guy at the shipyard was wearing the same shirt as me the other day. We both had a distressed US Marine logo t-shirt. He didn't notice me, but I noticed him.
    I'm a bad person. I'm judging by appearances. But the guy wearing my shirt was a long, long way from his fighting-fit Marine days. His spare tire came off of a semi truck. Genetics were not his friend, either, as his bald head glowingly broadcast.
    Schadenfreude? Yep. I'm (kinda) ashamed to admit at that moment I was ...
  23. It's all in the mind...

    MY MIND, probably, but as I look out from my little upstairs box-room window;

    Everything, the colours the lines and the shapes of all that I look at all seem so......... I don't know......sharp, vivid,,,, stark I suppose. Yes, sunshine is sunshine whatever the time of year but Autumn seems to bring everything into focus. It's as though everything, my garden fence, and the ornaments, are all bracing themselves, for the months ahead.

    Don't mind me, I'm just old, and bored. ...
  24. Neighbors


    The guy next door was out walking a new puppy.

    Cute doggy, but that's another checkmark against him. What happened to the other one? There was another dog they had, and I remember he was a runner.

    There's something wrong or lacking with those who can't train a dog. I may be a bastard for saying that, but that's what I believe. If you can't train a dog to not bolt, don't have a dog.

    He came at me with some crap about blocking the road , illegal ...
  25. Guilty


    My thumbnail hurts. Boo....hoo.

    It's pretty. The dead part that you trim off is a 'T' shape. That's because I split it with a razor knife a few weeks ago. I keep catching it on things.

    How pathetic. Lol. Considering the real suffering. For instance... I woke up with a stomach ache last night. I'd eaten too much. We'd gone to an expensive restaurant, and though I'd attacked my meal, about halfway in I was stuffed. I didn't clean my plate. And then, about ...
