  1. Daddy Great Relief in Draft 1

    Distilled, my character blended, and churned, addition, the dash [tabasco, bucket splash @ 50%] of the English aristocracy crazy horse, so-called. And the result was a boy child raised properly at the turn of this century.
    ‘Hooray,’ I cried for those first eighteen years, and I cried for the next eight.
    I am crying today.
    For several months now the telephone calls:
    ‘I have no shoes, it is snowing. What are you going to do about this, you old bastard. I am sleeping in dustbins ...

  2. Natural Born Killer (final demo w/ bass)

    I guess this is the last blog post I'm making because this forum has completely lost all of its personable qualities.

    I respect the decision to make the forum completely oriented towards writing, but for y'all to take personal journals away is just really fucking irking.

    Unless I start writing again, I probably won't be coming back here after next year.

  3. Eye Opening Find

    Most of my blogs have been about works in progress, and while on vacation last week, I did a little writing on my current. Then I stopped, because I found I had not managed to copy my latest spreadsheet of characters to my notebook, didn't want to recreated it, and needed it for my next scene. So I had to simply enjoy my vacation.

    But that isn't what this blog is about. I recently joined the Operations Committee of an organization devoted to carrying out the good works of my favorite ...

  4. What's in a dream?

    It amazes me when people say that they remember dreams so vividly when I, well, obviously I dream just like anyone else but I wake with absolutely no recollection of any dream I may or may not have had. That was until last night and I am finding it all a bit disconcerting. I shall attempt to recount the details of a dream that I had with a view as to why I dreamed what I did.

    Okay, so there I was, in my dream-state, totally awake, seemingly, in a world of grey. No worldly features, ...

  5. Natural Born Killer (final demo)

    Final bass version coming soon.

    I've gained a new appreciation for my avatar.

    This is like, the best "ROTFL" I have ever seen in my entire life.

    I just got a new phone and the bitch has THREE MICROPHONES AND THREE CAMERAS.

    It records 1080p video with 3D sound.

    I'm going to spend the next three days with the bass player and knock out a final demo of KILL IT ...
  7. Nowhere to Run

    This was written back around 2013/2014 when I was homeless, much of it written acoustically without an amplifier.

    It was, and remains a masterpiece, but I haven't sat down and practiced it more that a few times in the past year because I've been so preoccupied with writing new material.

    I want to sit down and re-record this without the mistake that I have perpetuated in EVERY RECORDING ATTEMPT in the past 6 years.
  8. The Hero's Journey

    I'm writing a tale of mystery and intrigue ... and quite a bit of murder.

    Here's how things happen when I write. My hero's side is trying to make progress on who's murdering his associates. The associates are beings who used to be Greek gods, so they have some advantages.

    The nominal leader of his cause wants to send him on a mission, and he doesn't know the technique to get where he wants to go. (He needs to get to the Underworld). No problem. By surprise, she stabs him ...
  9. Flight Of The Reaper

    This is the best shit I ever wrote.

    It took years to find the time to finish it, about 4 months to ACTUALLY finish it, like 2 days to practice, and it was recorded on the first take without a warm-up the following day.

    This is my magnum opus, and I believe it will always be my most cherished composition because it proved to me that there is literally NOTHING I am incapable of with a guitar in my hands.

    I've ...
  10. Back to writing

    My intended next project (which I've discussed previously) is one between two factions at odds, lots of characters, hopefully lots of intrigue, and a mystery.

    My idea for the book got more ambitious after I'd already written almost three chapters in first person. So I decided to read (for the fourth time or so) Roger Zelazny's Amber series, which has mystery and intrigue involving many characters, and is written in first person.

    It took a while, but I finished that, then ...
  11. Are Debut Authors Getting Publishing Deals?

    I found this question in a thread in one of my writing groups. (I love this group--they really hit on the pertinent subjects). There were a lot of answers, but I noticed that the majority of them answered by saying that there were big six and seven-figure deals that had currently been made, and they cited the names of the authors. I think I saw a total of three. Obviously, these posters and the OP were thinking about the Big-5 houses since you rarely see any advances in the small and independent ...

    When a beastie mates it salivates

    It squeaks it squeals it howls it reeks
    from passion dripping off its cheeks
    It groans it moans it eats its bones
    as fangs rip and sink in beastie stink

    Beastie Babies crawl about
    Beastie Babies sing and shout
    Mommies lost and Daddies gone
    Damned We Be! Alone We Suffer!
    How can one scold us when no one will hold us?

    I ride amongst the stars on moonlit nights;
    hoping to find you riding beside them,
    you’re my shining star; the brightest of lights
    amongst these starry specks of solar gems.

    My search leads me to our favorite star,
    the pulsar that we studied in our youth;
    afterwards we went
  14. Natural Born Killer (with bass)

    This took 9 hours of practice, but god damn, it's turning into one of the best songs I've ever heard in my life.
  15. “Remember Me” Star Trek TNG Season 4

    I don’t know why the episode always stuck with me, but it has.

    The idea of the entire universe, shrinking around you? Every moment there are less things, less people. Until, the point where existence simply collapses upon you. There is nothing, and soon you are nothing.

    I’ll admit, I’ve always had a soft-spot for strong female characters (part of the reason I was such a Voyager fan). In this episode, Dr. Bev Crusher freaks-out a little, but does not panic. Instead, ...
  16. Blog births

    Matty owned a pro-blog for many years, it made me, and him, very very very very poorly.

    Arisen anew we thought to beta-test this here WF facility, see how men might arise together, we might re-indulge art-form toward mutual delights alone at the screen face...


    I am...in

  17. Natural Born Killer (WIP #1)

    There were a couple of slight mistakes but I wanted to record this quickly.

    It's fun to play.
  18. KILL IT WITH FIRE take 5

    This is the last thing we recorded 3 weeks ago. Due to a bunch of retarded bullshit, I haven't been able to play my guitar for 3 weeks, but saturday and sunday we worked on a new song and we're about 1:35 seconds in.

    It's whatever; progress has been made, albeit very slowly.

    I haven't posted this because I've been depressed.
  19. Year of Hell

    This rant refers to a spectacular Star Trek Voyager episode (1997), and an exploration of that episode. For current events, see “2020 Year of Hell”

    I am a social pariah. I am a “Trekkie” (someone who likes Star Trek lore). Also, I am a fan of the Star Trek series “Voyager”, which is maligned by most Trekkies. This makes me an outcast amongst outcasts.

    That said, I will not back down from my praise of the Voyager episode “Year of Hell” (even most Voyager haters admit ...
  20. witching hour thoughts

    by , August 17th, 2020 at 08:26 AM (Stillborn Thoughts)
    This weekend has been a respite of the mind and soul. While much of it was spent simply doing adult work – laundry, cleaning the house, taking my cat outside and playing with her – they were all generously slow and simple. There was nothing particularly complex about anything I did, and that’s what was spectacular.
    This is something I’m sure the older among you will recognize. The joy of a simple day seems an understated one, but something I can’t imagine living long without.

  21. Blind Positivity

    The weight of the world can be oppressive and dark, particularly when we're buried under a sea of existential angst to begin with. It can be useful to 'flip the script' as they say, and try on a shifted perspective. What has been working for me lately is to pay more attention to the good things happening in each moment. For instance, I am breathing, and nothing really hurts. The air is clean enough and I have a glass of water right here to drink. Today, while not guaranteed, is unfolding nicely. ...
  22. worldy worries

    by , August 15th, 2020 at 02:32 AM (Stillborn Thoughts)
    it feels, lately, as if the worries of the world are too real to bear. not to say I’m incapable. I’m anything but that, and honestly that fact makes it worse. knowing I can fix my problems but haven’t only shines the spotlight internally.
    that’s why I’m writing another of these after so long – they’re a good receptacle to leave yesterday’s remains in. perhaps not the prettiest of send off’s, but it’s what works.

    Lately, work has become a greater and greater focus for me. First ...
  23. A flight into the Abyss

    A Flight Into the Abyss

    broken arrow-
    feathers in the wind
    fear unchecked

    let me drown in the mud
    rather than face the demons
    that crucified my pride

    shriveled heart-
    buckling knees
    trembling fingers

    I cry in the wilderness
    for those that I’ve forsaken
    a thousand deaths I die
    for the faithlessness of my acts-
    the facts of my deceit will forever haunt me
  24. Fractured Songs on Moonlit Nights

    Fractured Songs on Moonlit Nights

    frozen landscapes................brittle bones.................

    ................imploding stars



    cast aside like a broken toy
    no longer the golden boy
    revolution the only solution
    against a malevolent institution

    shattered.................seared................. ...
  25. KILL IT WITH FIRE (Now with BASS)

    This is the second demo we recorded together with minimal mistakes.

    The bassist is Mike from Namtaru, and MAJOR RESPECT for learning this song in the same time it took me to write it.

    The final version is coming either tonight or tomorrow.

    We're gonna work some more.
