I read about this lunacy of Bible editing over at HuffPo and marveled at how once again true life has trumped even the best satirical minds. It's just difficult to make one sink so low and to think so little of one's fellow man. Is it possible to underestimate a/… Read full post »

Defeat The Press

I try to stay away from TV talk shows. It might be different if everyone were drugged with truth serum beforehand - or at least drunk - so we could hear the true unfiltered voices within. Instead we get some really finely polished bullshit delivered in tailored suits and/…

Would You Speak If You Were God?

Elmer sat on his front porch forlorn and stroking his shotgun. He didn't get to fire his gun "no more" and that cut him to the core. Each day he pined away for his glorious shotgun blasts of the past, the "only times I done felt alive." But no… Read full post »

Harry Jumps Off The Nakatomi Plaza Tower

"I'm sick of you people! I'm sick of this world! I'm sick of me! I'm sick of everything! It's not going to end - not now or ever! You people got no clue what's in store for you. You're gonna lie to yourselves till the end. Well, have at… Read full post »

Mountain winds blow cold,
Frozen snow in midday sun,
Fingers touch the sky.

It's buried deep within the human psyche now but there were two types of power in the Ancient Days of our fragile formation. The most obvious was the military - but that was for external security. For internal security, life was held in the communal granaries. Back then, famine… Read full post »

She Found A Way Out

First she rang me, then she found a way out. To the paramedics in the ambulance she was just another overfed, suburban housewife taking pills for thrills. They didn't know her dreams had died or the wondrous soul she brought into this world, they didn't know who she was atRead full post »

Yom Kippur: The Judas Touch

John was the wild man who always did his own thing. Fucking fearless, a man of unconventional wisdom. Many are those in this world who first look to their fellow man to know what to think, feel and even what to wear. John did none of those. He explored… Read full post »

She Rang Me

She rang me today. I wondered why my heart raced when I heard the phone. It was that magical feeling of the old days. I fought it back, admonishing myself for wishful thinking from a simple ring. But my instincts had proven right.

It was Her.

Panicked to the… Read full post »

Dr Arnie, come out of your tardis!  The Dalek Doctor is back and says you use your sonic screwdriver as a sex toy.  Once again she has used her magic spells to ensare the overlords into being her wildly willing bitches.  There must have been a time warp or crack/… Read full post »

I should have bought an SRO ticket for 29 bucks. It sounded like a rip off but the atmosphere was electric around the stadium. "Cops and cars and topless bars" as Morrison put it. All sorts of nice leg walking around too. Shame I didn't buy a ticket but then it… Read full post »

Zerrypierre's OS Reign Of Terror

tricky zerry
He had an enemies list too!

Seems once again we have failed to learn from history.  The Reign of Terror has returned! Ze Jacobin Zerrypierre has started down the slippery slope of executing "enemies of Open Salon".  And just as the original terror shut down freedom of the press,/… Read full post »

A Gentle Japanese Rain

Bamboo eaves drip pleasantly
to a world so silent every droplet's heard
from a gentle Japanese rain.

Cleansing waters come softly landing
blindly on their path to a planet
whether life or death its course.

Grey clouds glide gloomless and free
bringing Nature's kiss
in ultimate Faith and

"Hey, Harry! You know what? You need to go see a psychiatrist. You'd be a perfect candidate!"

Let's face facts: it's hell living with other people. I swear to God if I win the lottery I'm buying five houses and not telling one fucker in the world where they… Read full post »

I know what you're thinking: We've been through tough times before. It's all gonna work out in the end. Sure, we might be on the wrong path now but we'll straighten out, just like we've always done before. Have faith! Keep hope alive! Give the world a chance!

A hurricane's remnants swept through here last year and the storm was supposed to be brutal. So naturally, that made me want to get out in it. I drove into the teeth of it which led me to downtown Dallas and past the artsy Deep Ellum district to east of there… Read full post »

Van Gogh as a Blogger

Vincent eagerly emailed these words to his brother. Once more the passions had seized him, lighting his eyes and/…

A Homeless Guy's Guide To Etiquette

Yes, even we have to unionize

After reading iamsurly's posting on etiquette, it reminded me of our own etiquette posting on the cinder block wall down here at the shelter. One thing that truly offends me is people's idea it's some sort of Lord of the Flies situation we got going/…

For Whom Does the Whistle Blow?

I saw in the paper where the trains that pass by where I usually sleep will be silenced. They're gonna put in some new technology or something that allows them to not need to blow their lonesome nighttime whistle. This is like a friend leaving me. That whistle gives meRead full post »
