He'd read about such men as a child. Outlaws on the run, living on the outskirts of society, their lives steadily withering away. Drip by drip their options dissipating until finally, they have no place left to go. In that moment they'd simply turn to the wall/…
Mariko was known as one of the most stunningly beautiful women in Tokyo. Her smoldering eyes and winning smile charmed smitten hearts and inflamed hopeless desires. Many a soul panged how one night with her would change a life forever. Sharks and vultures, sycophants and adolescents, pinge/…
"You know, guys, they won't be calling this the Last Supper for nothing. Come tomorrow, I'm toast!"
"Say it ain't so, boss! Us guys will moider anyone who touches you!"
"It's no use, boys. I'm to be tortured and murdered in the most brutal way/…
I got a hold of a documentary called "Waste Land" that was supposed to be good and socially relevant and blah, blah, blah. Vik Muniz grew up a very lower middle class child in Brazil only to work his way out to New York as a successful/…
It's been four years in the making. When one is altering a masterpiece like Louis I. Kahn's Kimbell Art Museum in Fort Worth, one treads both lightly and heavily: lightly when touching the harmony of the existing building/…
My name is Mitsubishi Jiro*. I doubt anyone will ever find my name in many history books of this great warring era of the late 1500's. Though my family are famous merchants in the Settsu province along the trading seaport, I left them when I achieved manhood./…
Don't come here expecting good news. There's never any good news. Sometimes in the yin and yang there may be an occasional uptick but the overall direction is still down. Life, is just shit. When fear strikes you and in sheer desperation you/…
"Lucky" Louie isn't really lucky. In fact, he's unlucky by most measures. In other words, if you find someone called "Lucky" at a shelter, you can rest assured he was tagged with that moniker by some sarcastic asshole (*cough*). Lottery tickets are the fools' gold of the/…

Dear sir, and to those of your ilk:
I'm writing in regard to your complicit treachery in the use of cruel and unusual punishment of permanent solitary confinement in your facility. Exactly whom are you protecting? Certainly not the public with these acts… Read full post »
"Let's admit it. At our age it really is all about the lifestyle at this point."
Her gorgeous bare foot dangled in the air in careless disregard, cocooned in a reality of her own mythmaking. Her two friends - one coiled cobra-like on the sofa, the/…
Nobody knew where the Stranger came from and nobody dared ask. Maybe we were afraid of the answer. Rumors naturally filled the gap. The most accepted explanation was he fell from the sky. Not that we really thought that's what happened. It's just that it so overwhelmingly/…
As a personal joke I call him Simon Templar, after the great Leslie Charteris figure monikered "The Saint". The Saint was a swashbuckler trapped in the twentieth century who, luckily for us, still found no shortage of/…
I'm no WWI expert or buff. My knowledge of it is cursory. I never really understood its origins and my interest is minimal. But if I had to vote for the shittiest war of all/…
Hello everyone, Jacob Jerusalem here to tell you all about the story catching like fire across the country. Some call it crazy and some call it as real as the sun. But I'm here to get to the bottom of it and bring you the truth! These/…
Been quite a while since I watched 2007's "Elite Squad" set in the notorious slums of Rio De Janeiro. I was ambivalent when I put it in my queue but after watching the epic "City of God" set in/…
I don't usually post whole stories but this one really struck me. Yes, I'm still complainng about all our useless and destructive 21st century wars. I'm sure that's considered passe by now but I wonder: will that sentiment hold true when the final bill comes due? Precious few know how high… Read full post »
"Did you find another one?"
"Yes! Yes! Dropped him right into the Maze!"
"Oh, goody! Let's go watch. It never gets old no matter how many souls we snatch."

It had been five years since she and the family had moved to the Bay area. Like all the previous moves she fed off the change as a fresh distraction and energy boost. She would marvel on endlessly to anyone who would listen of the exciting new/…
"Waiting and Wondering." Charlie spoke as if those were two ominous gods of doom and dread. These eyeless and earless overlords neither saw nor heard an ounce of the human misery they engendered. They crushed humanity as to their unfeeling/…

So it had happened. While the scientists studied the science there were precious few studying the truth. The emotional dissonance of the planet had grown so great it caused a shifting of the axis. This had come as a surprise due to a panicked movement to/…

The sign said: "DON'T FEED THE CAT"
"Oh, my God! Why is that cat in a cage? Somebody needs to feed him!" she cried.
"This is your first time in town. Nobody feeds the cat," he explained.
"Nobody?? But he's completely helpless in there."
"Must be his own/…
There's a certain shade that the Japanese maple leaf reaches in the Fall that has to be my favorite color. It doesn't even seem real. It's a vibrant red-purple that I cannot describe but know it when I see it. So that gave me the impetus of delving/…
It's the light that I think of. It seems there was a different light in the early Sixties during the Kennedy presidency. I only know that time from photographs but that's what sticks out to me, like it's an endless Spring day. You can literally see the optimism. The Sixties/…
