  1. MAKE READY MY SHIP, GENERAL!

    Yar, I'm about to do some fly shit and probably leave the city again... the only thing is, I really have no destination this time.

    I assume that I'm going to end up regretting my decision, but this is a trend that has continued for some time now. I'm always moving on to the next thing, but I always end up falling back shortly afterwards. I'm not particularly happy about the idea of packing up and starting out fresh for the umpteenth time, but I can't really think of another method of ...

  2. X-Men Got It Wrong?

    I think X-Men got one thing wrong...

    In the X-Men world, the mutants are hated by most people. While I can see this happening for mutants who are physically unattractive (the Morlocks?), I think this is generally unlikely in the real world. There would be hate, certainly, but, deep down, people would idolize, worship, or envy mutants because of their extraordinary powers and, if anything, they would hate themselves for being "only normal". Maybe not to the point of brooding ...

  3. Dreams of the shadow lord.


    Across decades, centuries, millennia our love reaches back to that fateful day. You remember it almost as well as I, don't you? I stared across the filled ballroom, bored to tears, as you entered. Your dark hair obscuring half your face, one twinkling blue eye arrested my attention. Holding me in place as you crossed the room. Breathing became harder as you neared but still I didn't look away, you were powerful and magnificently proud as you stalked you way over to the President's daughter.

  4. Adele

    This was written for my friend Adele,
    and with her encouragement, now
    shared with you.

    You gave it your all
    you gave your best
    Itís not your fault
    Itís time to rest

    Rest from the stress
    that guided your life
    distance yourself from
    turmoil and strife

    You tried to fix something
    that didnít want to be fixed
    and over the years
    thereís been plenty of tricks

    Create a new home

  6. Straight Edge

    I like my music, and love my history. At some point recently my mind wandered back to the glory days of Punk Rock. Y'know, before Green Day usurped and ruined it. Everyone remembers Punk for it's excesses. Spike Mohawks, piercings, slam dancing. All good stuff. But there was more than the fashion.

    Punk was also a social movement. Modern Hardcore was born out of the economic downturn in Brittan, and rode that wave of malaise to the States in the late 70's. People remember Punk ...

  7. Unlimited Potential

    Humans are born with an innate ability to make ANYTHING possible.

    If you think about it, we have absolutely no idea what it was like to live in the 1700's; people in the 1700's had no idea what it was like to live in the 1400's; so on, ect.

    It's actually a total mindfuck to think about what we've accomplished as a race over the past 5000 or so years. My friend who is a devout religious fanatic lives by the biblical representation of the past, and although I tell him to ...

  8. Fateful day...

    ​I have yet to sort out spellings but here is some more story if anyone is interested.

    Across decades, centuries, millennia our love reaches back to that fateful day. You remember it almost as well as I, don't you?

  9. Pieces of the Past

    .
    Yesterday I was cleaning and I found this ancient writing device hidden away in one of my draws...

    Loose-leaf paper.

    With a bit of sadness I kind of just looked and wondered on it for a bit. I felt the need to keep it...to use it just for the hell of it...but ultimately threw it away. As a kid, paper was a vital need. I constantly wrote as a kid and you couldn't catch me without some sort of pen and paper. But with the smart phone all that went away. No need to ...

  10. General life.

    I'm waiting for the blasted pan to soak,
    elbow deep in suds. I scrub at stubborn,
    baked on rements of last nights meal.

    Aromas rising out of my oven,
    they tantalize my stomach,
    and cause my mouth to water.

    I await the cooking of my potatoes,
    to turn a golden, shade of brown,
    and crisp up at the edges.

    Then I toss the gammon in the pan,
    red hot, that I listen to it sizzle,
    my belly gurgles at aticipated meat. ...

  11. Wishful thinking of adventure

    No Rhyme just an out pouring of pent up thoughts.

    Wishful thinking of Adventure.

    Do you ever dream of being able to fly?
    Of being caught up in a huge battle?
    Have you ever wanted an adventure?

    Here I sit at my window, looking out.
    Wondering about where I would go
    if I could, leave all of this behind.
    Start a new life? Would I go someplace
    warm or cold, sunny or snowy.
    Would I make new friends or just

  12. How to Change the World

    If we are all energy and energy flows
    and surrounds us
    the Earth then is energy also as is
    everything on her, in her and around
    her...every form, ever seen, everyday
    everywhere
    Earth now needs positive reinforcement
    more than ever
    Love, to feed her amongst the greedy
    opportunists that exploit her
    What can be done to heal her?
    The power of one
    The power of intent
    What kind of energy?
    How much energy must be projected? ...

  13. The Problem With All Lives Matter vs X Lives Matter

    Real quick...why does a group of people decide to walk down the street asking for rights? Because they feel they either have none, or that they are in some way adversely affected in a way that is beyond their direct control to remedy.

    Recently there was a thing called Black Lives Matter. However, there have been many other types like this. Sometimes we don't like them. When the Klu Klux Klan have their rallies, or the Tea Party, or something of that sort, they all get maligned by the ...

  14. Illegal Immigration

    Illegal immigration is not a new thing. It's been around forever, the idea of borders and the wrong sort crossing them, wars starting over them. It's not just a western property-obsessed thing either. Indians to the East and West both had their territories and defended them with force. Everyone has their sense of property. Remember when your little brother would take your toy and you'd take it back and club him over the head with it? The idea of property isn't something that was instilled on us ...

  15. Spilling coffee on my brown pants, anyway( they're brown)

    "Belfast- master closet led at cabinets-
    Drop ceiling lights reposition to align w/ halfway mark between HVAC chase and wall
    How far off back wall tbd limited by structure"-
    That was my day and now is my day as I read "belzebubs comics" inbetween yesterday's notes and drink coffee in the dark. I spilled some- heard the drops hit my pants ( which blocked it from the couch, t g) but it doesn't matter as my pants are faded brown with some washed-look/won't come

    guy got on the train stop i use to stand at and i always wondered what he did with his large drawing pad tucked under his arm come clear or windy times.He sat on the window seat opposite me and i noticed a badge on his lapel which read 100% scouse.Next stop a man with that stale ale smell sat facing me and he looked up the train and asked a woman is that dog a learcher but i never heard a reply so he looked at me and said he could do with a dog to catch the rats that get into his place...we exchanged ...

  17. Meanwhile, in Nippon

    So I'm an Otaku. I love Japanese culture until it's like, wtf. I'm fucking obsessed with Japanese singers/Japanese music in general, I've watched literally COUNTLESS anime (in equally countless genres), Japanese movies, and I can speak Japanese almost fluidly (although I don't understand more than 30% of the language).

    Over the years, my love of Japanese pop music took over my love of metal. I found it incredibly ironic that Megadeth was my favorite metal band and Nanase Aikawa was ...

  18. Do Torturer's Feel The Pain?

    When I watch someone get tortured on TV I cringe up. The more gruesome it is the more I can't stand it, and if the scene drags on for too long I even start to feel a little sick. I'm not sure if it's just me, but even though I'm not being tortured myself, it seems like some sort of empathetic link connects me to the pain- even when it's not real.

    So I wondered...how can a person who tortures people in real life deal with this sort of thing. I mean...he probably does deal with it in ...

  19. Peaky Blinders (No Spoilers)

    Great show. Pretty much all four seasons, though I thought at the fourth there were some stretch marks in terms of plot, but still pretty good.

    It won't be a waste of time.

    There is no life
    as desolate as
    the powerless

    no sleep as barren
    as the dreamless

    in the vastness
    of infinite emptiness

    let the slow chariot
    roll on by

    ~Neetu

    I know this isn't a place for revisions, but, as I was falling asleep last night, a few changes came to mind and I am posting that version here, too.

    There's no life

    the powerless

    no sleep ...

  21. Too Critical?

    I know people get defensive, but on the other hand critics can be assholes, if not just flat-out wrong...and assholes.

    I often feel guilty for hating popular things and it kinda makes me feel like the old guy yelling at kids from his porch. I step back and wonder...am I just being a crank and the movie was good, or was it really bad and everyone else is just crazy?

    At this point I remembered "Knight Rider". It was an 80's show about a man and a futuristic car ...

  23. Trying to World-Build, But...

    I used to think that I was the only person with "deep thoughts" until...you talk to people...and then you realize that, for some reason, everyone has these silent thoughts. Maybe not so deep, but intense and persistent questions or yearnings or...whatever.

    I think one of the questions I pondered on the most was "what does it all mean". Mostly, the answer to this question tends to be "doesn't matter, you're alive so make the most of it". And people engaging ...

  24. Lyrics 3!

    Okay.

    This is a song I've been trying to find the transcript for, but I can't find it, so I'm rewriting it real quick.

    It's called "Say Hello To Fate" and I think it's the third song I ever finished lyrically? I really can't remember it verbatim so I'm going to try to revise it a bit.

    ~~~~

    [Verse]

    Insinuating heresy in all we do and all we say
    Corrupting minds with one shot lies
    It all ends here today

  25. The Disco time

    While you were sheik'n ya booty away I was still into what came after the hippy-dippy. 14, and I was dating Cherrie Curry in Foxes. She was such a mess, and I tried to be there for her, and her sun-in damaged, feathered hair. She'd take anything- luudes, coke, black beauties; mixed with vodka, while I only smoked weed.


    Shit, I didn't even do that at the time because I'd nearly blown out my eardrums trying to hold in a hit a hash-oil. My brother was pissed- had told me this was
