  1. Dark Musings

    Warning: This is a blog... but if you don't like anything dark, don't read it.

    At the risk of my sanity, I often walk a dangerous line, consciously pondering what would never be morally acceptable or possible.Thankfully, there is a large, dominant, massive filter, between my brain, my mouth, and my body. Anything I say and do, is, for the most part, filtered until it's crystal clear.

    But inside my mind, before anything gets out, the water is most often black.

  2. The Long March

    Recently I attended the annual speech day at my old school as I am a donation governor there. That doesn't mean that I am involved in governance of the school but simply that I have been awarded the honorary title as a result of making donations to its funds. The school is hundreds of years old and speech day is a high profile formal occasion with the Lord Mayor of London in attendance. A highlight of the day is the march-past in which all the 860 boarding pupils march past the Lord Mayor with the ...

  3. 3. as low as I go... probably not...

    3. Monday….

    Everyone showed up today; the whole army; actually three armies, from three sub-contractors. Good thing, because the owners and the architects are really sweating it that we’re behind schedule. There’s ‘the Blame Game’, but so far it hasn’t erupted into all out war.

    We’ll see…

    So far, so good today… not even 8 am and materials arrived, blah blah blah…

    The important thing is that I made it to the job, and I nearly didn’t.

  4. NSFW Considerations

    In my most recent story I put on my website, I very likely want to end with a very not safe for work scene since it's very in character for one of the main leads. I mean, she's a succubus, a very old and experienced one at that. The thing is, I worry about opening the floodgates of my mind on this cause every single one of the characters I'm writing for are 'sexual' in one way or another and I'd like to express that. Honestly, I hope by keeping that in the side stories, the main project can go on ...

    The Autumn

    (AA BB CC DD EE)
    When leaves fall, twigs wither, flowers die,
    Wild geese are flying high in the sky.
    Yonder, on the cold water a boat drifts away,
    Wind blows, trees cry like ghost and sway.
    The moving weeds scare the crows,
    looking spiral are the mountain roads.
    A lonely traveller hurries on his journey,
    Alas!

  6. jerm, the river king

    I was small, I forget the age. It was when we used to always road trip out of the city. This time you took us camping near the mountains. I remember being excited because the river by our campsite was safe to swim in. You took us down there right away. You told me to be careful, the current was moving fast. Its intensity built as I inched my way towards the middle. I could feel the cold water crash against my little legs as they struggled to keep upright. I remember looking at you just before it ...

  7. The Hollow Dreams of a Mad Poet

    The Seventh Circle (the Blasphemers)


    The lone wolf chews and eats his young
    Too many roosters spoil the hen
    There can be only one with a golden tongue

    They bowed before me in all my glory
    The lone wolf chews and eats his young
    In Awe-were all who heard my story

    I am your only begotten son
    There can only be one with a golden tongue
    Jesus was the deluded one

    Stretched on burning sand: no ...

  8. Moving Forward

    I just finished my project for the past week and it's in passable shape but I'm planning on finding an artist to do some original work. In the meantime, I'll go back to working on my writing, both side and main parts of the Blue Phoenix. Insecurity grips me now that I've renovated my website and prepared it for finally putting up some works and smaller stories. Will people like it? Should I worry about that at all? There's a lot to consider but I've decided to just put my work here on this site ...

  9. The Broken Dreams of a Mad Poet

    The Fifth Circle (the Angry)


    It grows
    It leaps
    It lingers
    It sleeps

    It starts in the gut it grows it leaps
    Into the head it lingers it sleeps

    And it wakes

    FIGHT- hit her in the head
    STRIKE- she better be dead
    BITE- my rage turned red

    LIGHT- no more, no more, no more


    The Sixth Circle (the Heretics)

  10. Anyone selling some focus?

    The last week has been much much better then many years prior.Maybe not physically, but mentally. But the same problem persists that always has.I can't seem to do one thing for more then a few minutes. No single task. Any single task I can perform for awhile is simply something that's varied.

    Either I browse the web and go here and there, or I play some RPG with an open world and non-linear story, so I can go off and do whatever I want to. I hate games that give you no choices, no ...

  11. If I only had a beard...

    If thoughts wore shoes, mine would always wear them on the wrong foot. It's hard find my bearings in the fog, its scrambled, a jumble of letters, and if i could describe it as a texture, it would feel something like the space above my upper lip when I was 13 -- fuzzy. And still, my facial hair is under developed, just like my writing. I wonder if there is any connection between a persons clarity of mind and writing prowess, and to the voluptuousness their beard? (can a beard be voluptuous?) Ginsberg, ...

    3. All I wanna do is zooma-zoom-zoom…

    Hurray! I’m on at 5:30 am, a-gain, and the race is on…

    No, I’m not going to speed that fast, only 50 or so, but I’m stoked because I bought two new tires for the rear. No more checking the pressure/filling up every couple of days, battle of ass-crack hanging out/tugging shirt, hiking my pants. Aaa-nd air costs a dollar, thank you-very-much, Scumbags, who used to snip the ends off to the point where they got a law passed so they can ...

  13. Blog - 5/24/15: Comic Con

    7am, I should've really went to bed at an earlier time than what I did. The film, Starry Eyes, wasn't worth the exhaustion that filled my eyes. I went to bed at eight and woke up at midnight, unable to sleep any longer than that, I stayed up and thumbed through films off of Full Moon Streaming (I have a subscription) and that was that. I went to bed at four in the morning and managed with three more hours of sleep. That's seven hours, awkward hours, albeit, but that was enough to keep

  14. The Metal

    It's like everything that I live for, everything that makes me whole can be provided by metal. Maybe it's just being a musician, but I feel like this entity inside of me has been here for a lot longer; I fell in love with metal when I was like 9. It was Black Sabbath - Wicked World that turned me. To this day, I find it to be a brutal metal song. It's crazy how a song written in 1969 could epitomize what was to come. The birth of all metal in a simple jazz riff.

    Metal comes in so many ...

  15. Misery in Ecstasy

    It's a rare thing for me to be in the mood for poetry but today is such a day. Enjoy!

    It seems a cruel jest to be


    Adrift among seas
    Meandering upon roads

    Listlessly between stars
    Over some yet under many
    Seeking not a place
    Traipsing is my fate


    Amidst the masses
    Never to be singled out
    Despite my urge to scream

    Servitude's choker
    Endured and indentured
    Even ...

    The Third Circle (the Gluttons)

    Hunger
    Pigs in the pen
    Feasting breathing eating
    Mud slides ostracized compromised
    Needing feeding seething beating cheating

    S i n k i n g

    S i n k i n g

    In the filth with the scum
    and the dirt- YUM! YUM! YUM!

  17. artificial unintelligence

    How much of whats in my mind really mine? Most of it is borrowed -- I want to sound deep, but I just flounder in the shallows or starfish on the surface. Do I really understand what I’m saying? I’m a simpleton. My stomach curdles with the partially digested thoughts of wiser human beans than I, half absorbed, waiting for an opportunity to regurgitate them out to whoever is nearest, in hopes for a… “hmmm, interesting… You’re smart!” but if they ever asked “Could you explain that thing you just said?” ...

  18. Blog - 5/21/15: Comical Convicts (Comic Con!)

    Hola, Out of Framers! Whazzzup? Me, I am shooting the breeze and enjoying the next few days or so with my feet propped up over a table as the allergies chip me away into nothingness. Not joking, isn't it wonderful that when someone mows a lawn, it can render me completely useless for the day? In the mean-time, my days have been filled with something that feels close to nothing at all. Like, I've existed for the last few days and have nothing to show for it. That isn't entirely true though, ...

  19. A Fictional Race

    I have been entertaining musings of an odd race of sapient mammals, and never could give them a proper place in any species or work of fiction. I have finally come to a decision and decided to put it down to writing.

    Given that this is a solid info dump, I thought I'd spare the creative boards and log my ideas here.

    For all intents and purposes, let's call them Ddiog, a Welsh word for lazy. Why? They're sloth people. They are skeletally and anatomically similar to three ...

  20. Blog: Pitch Slapped to the Max (Fury Road)

    I have been a little deterred and inconsistent with my blogging and works as of late. I mean, I've been throwing around Poetry like no tomorrow, but I haven't been advertising and it just hasn't been the effort and communication that I've set a precedent for on Out of Frame.

    How are you? Me, I haven't been bad. I've worked seven months now at a Deli which is, ... depressing, but other-wise, I've been flourishing from a creative perspective and have been having a lot more enthusiasm ...

  21. To polish a turd

    As this most glamorous title may insinuate, I am not in a good mood. Despite all the work and effort I put into my shitty, part time job, I was told today that if things had worked out differently, I'd have been fired over taking my lunch 3 minutes early. The things was, I was more disappointed I wasn't getting fired. It's come to a point where I dread going into work anymore. I won't get into it, let's just leave it at things have been shifting towards ends justifying the means. Which, is a dangerous ...

  23. My Invented Name

    So, this is simply the metaphors and meanings for the name I chose.

    As I mentioned in an earlier blog, I pretty much reinvented myself.

    So this persona I take on isn't simply online.

    It is my pen name, my signature, my mark on all my work. It would be my same name if I was a dj, rapper, trucker, etc.

    Crowley is everything I would be if I could. It's an analogy for my personality and a polarized caricature of my delusions and thought processes. ...

  24. best. Tuesday. ever!

    I know what happens on Main Event and Smackdown. Ha haha hahaha hahahahahahamuwhahahahahahahah.


    It was awesome, I didn’t know they taped Main Event before a live show. We, me and my sister got our seats around 6:30 and left the show around 10, no dark match after the show but one at the beginning.

    We got scared twice, first when Rusev dropped his flag, then another time when someone else came out.
