Excerpt: Metamorphosis (Re-blogged)

Here’s a re-blog of a bit of my fan fiction. New excerpts are imminent.

Eyrie Of An Aries

*** Author’s Note: Here is another excerpt of my fiction, edited to keep this post short and sweet. ***

The moons shine softly in the glade, casting their light on the statue of the Forest Lord. Behind her, the portal flares brightly, then fades and winks out. Barefoot, she walks towards the statue, which seems to gleam with an inner luminescence of its own. This statue is identical to the one that she saw in the grove before entering the portal, but looks to have been freshly-carved in comparison to its slightly weathered, moss-and-lichen-encrusted twin.

Of course, she thinks to herself. This is the realm of the Forest Lord, under his control and timeline. I am…between worlds.

She stands before the stag-headed stone effigy and gazes for a long moment, taking in the primal grandeur. The powerful build of the demigod as he brandishes his spear; his wolf…

Motels Monday

Remember the band the Motels? They were big in the 80s.

These three songs got a lot of airplay on the radio and MTV.

They’re still good to listen to.

I love the music that my mind shuffles through when I sleep.

What, When, Where, Who & Why

What: Super Bowl 52 (LII)

When: Sunday, 4 February 2018 @ 1530 PST

Where: U. S. Bank Stadium, Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA

Who: Philadelphia Eagles (NFC) vs. New England Patriots (AFC)

Why: Because sports. Because football. Because entertainment.

The game airs on NBC. The halftime show will suck arse.

The Eagles will soar.

😎

Defensive Dominance

Those are the words the sportscasters used to describe the play-style of the Philadelphia Eagles today.

The victory they earned over the Minnesota Vikings was without question.

Now the poor sad Twin City residents have to watch two teams, which aren’t their home squad, play in their stadium.

I certainly hope that the Eagles play the same way against New England in Super Bowl 52.

I want to see Tom Brady get sacked multiple times in a couple of weeks.

One Sunday Song: 21 January 2018

People Are Strange

People are a funny lot.

Some throw shit against the wall. If it sticks, they slap a price tag next to it and call it “art.”

What falls to the floor gets smeared onto paper and bound. A price tag is slapped on it and it gets called a “book.”

Those people consider themselves a success as an artist and / or writer because other people buy their shit.

I suppose it is a living for them. Catering to the lowest common denominator is easy.

Fast food vendors, Wal-Mart stores, NASCAR races and reality shows have their loyal consumers as well.

I’m not one.

Saturday Stuff! (Re-blogged)

The weekend is going well in spite of the local flooding. My little corner of the world made the national news last night! Pretty exciting stuff.

Here’s a re-blog of some Saturday stuff.

I liked it so much the first time around that I decided it required a re-airing, especially after cleaning up the comment section.

The mindlessness needed to be tossed.

Eyrie Of An Aries

It’s Saturday night and I’m in a saucy mood…so, enjoy these five random clips! The first two are dedicated to a fellow blogger and friend out there, as he enjoys Doctor Who and Ren & Stimpy like I do…and that’s a rare and wonderful thing! The other three clips are in honour of my long-standing Saturday night ritual: watching the block of anime on Cartoon Network’s [adult swim]. I’ve been doing so for a decade, now!

Three Friday Songs

Time to get the weekend started!

Here are three great songs to commence the Friday festivities.

Five On Friday: Shithole Countries

Today I offer up five of what I consider to be shithole countries.

These are places that rank low on my globe-trotting list for many reasons.

Visiting them would only occur if a flight is diverted, or if I have to drive through them to get somewhere else.

Here they are, in no particular order:

Italy, Russia, India, Australia, and Iceland.

The Slavic and Baltic nations also qualify.

You’d have to pay me a shit-ton of money to get me to set one toe in any of those shitholes.

😎

Coastal Thunder

I love thunderstorms. An impressive system moved through the area last night, providing a beautiful show of nature’s power.

Flashes of lightning so bright I could see them clearly through closed blinds and closed eyes.

Thunder so strong it shook the house and rattled the windows. It could even be felt through the ground.

Wind, rain, and hail combined. It was magnificent.

I’m a certified ceraunophile.
