So, you come up with a story idea. It’s a good one. You think you can go with it. You know what’s motivating your characters because they’re human and they carry all of those familiar flaws. You have a beginning and an idea of where it will all end. In essence you have what amounts […]
A strange little musical interlude… to myself…
Beach time tomorrow… and this will be the soundtrack. A little bit of an ode to the voice inside my head. Strange, I know but I’ve never been much of a sane sort. I think that this song speaks to the evil/good voice that taunts and chastises me on a daily basis. If you are […]
Decking the halls – or the aisles….
What is there to say about Black Friday? It’s a terrible day every year, wherein the most desperate of people wander around like a swarm of locusts devouring cheap merchandise. I find the whole thing extremely distasteful – and with reason. Year after year, Black Friday greets us with images of the worst of humanity […]
Reflecting on what I have to be thankful for is what makes this my favorite holiday – it is a calendared reminder that comes with the added bonus of great grub. There are many things that I am thankful for this Thanksgiving. It’s another year where those near and dear have remained healthy. I am […]
Obama continues inane argument – opposition is afraid.
Those opposed to Syrian refugees entering this country are afraid of widows and children. This is the small argument of President Obama.

Feeling like a stranger in your own land? You’re not alone.
Apparently, a majority of Americans are feeling like they no longer recognize their country. The media and idiotic millennials that have been brainwashed by an education system that has failed to teach academics but has excelled at preaching liberal ideology – love to bash those that would say as much, but you’re actually in good […]
Media laments political theater while continuing to churn out scripts.
The media cannot be taken seriously. Every day – the same lamentations about the sins of politicians engaged in theater. Of course, what they fail to address is their own culpability. Everything is political theater to these so-called journalists if it involves anything to do with conservatives pressing an issue. Abortion ban at 20 weeks […]
Mycroscope Reviews – The Martian
The Martian is a great flick. The acting, special effects and story are all very good. You really feel like you’ve been on a visit to the red planet. While all of it makes sense for the most part – I was a bit perturbed about the ending. To pontificate on it would cause me […]
Complacent – a musical interlude
Because sometimes music conveys a mindset much more aptly than anything that I could type – I occasionally call upon it to say what I cannot state so eloquently. This is one I used to apply to myself with a great deal of self loathing. Recently however, I have come to realize that it much […]
