The Reds Of Japan (WSFTC)


I saw Who Will Let In The Cat?' s homework assignment and scoffed.  I never did homework after school.  That would be a big waste of time. (Homework for one class I did during another.) But then Cindy Ross dragged me there by the ear and I saw it was so easy/… Read full post »

The Pharaoh Eats Mexican (Photo Essay)

On my last journey to the ancient granaries I merely visited an outpost, one of many throughout the kingdom. But today I visited the temple granaries, the largest in the land, cascading one after the other holding royal bounty to be kept from the masses (think Wall Street bonuses).… Read full post »

A Thong For Mrs. Brady

There's a story...
No, not that Mrs. Brady!

I saw a criminal described once as basically good because he "cares about what other people think." In reality, that's a sociopath, drawing false self-esteem externally.  Independent thinking is a virtue!  One does not become a successful Japanese warl… Read full post »

The Stalking Beast Is Hunting Me

I had a confused, bewildered - yet sickening - feeling as I pulled into the driveway to find my lawn covered in trashy looking papers. Mystified, I stumbled out of the car and came to find it was my trashy papers spread out all over creation, having been dug… Read full post »

It's In The Tweener Times I Live

Another year's useless energy spent...

My life is a complete waste. And I can't even admit that without monsters swarming on me like buzzards looking to pick my bones clean, constantly circling looking for any signs of weakness. Heckuva world you got going here, God! So it's only in… Read full post »

Fairy Tales of the Damned

It was easy to see how she got here - if not so easy to see how to get out. That little voice hissing inside her: Why be alone if you don't have to be? Being alone meant learning to walk on your own, exposing your decisions, growing up. She could… Read full post »

I read in the paper an article about the Pate Museum of Transportation closing by this Christmas.

OO Woods, Secret Agent Traitor Spy!

The spy is on the right

The movie Breach is based on the true story of Robert Hanssen, the most egregious spy in American history. When he's finally caught in the film, FBI Agent Plesac understandably has some questions for Hanssen:

Even if all you give them is why you/… Read full post »

The Unspeakable Things

"...Germany, considered the height of human intellect, bred a Nazi culture that used its "wisdom" to carry out the most unspeakable atrocities..."

A food fight had broken out on the plane. Dripping, messy musicians stood giggling helplessly at one another. A morose, dreamy girl sat in the back. Her eyes drifted away. The luxury jet screamed through the clouds in a triumph of modern engineering. She was the gilded passenger. And her/…

The world has a cockeyed point-of-view. We like telling ourselves what we want to hear, pretend it's the truth and destroy anyone or anything that says otherwise. But time will come when the light of truth will shine in all places (just ask Tiger!), revealing us for who we truly are… Read full post »

Streets of Darian (Photo Essay)

The streets of Dallas have turned cold in both weather and heart over the past few days. A chilling rain wetted the streets and any who inhabited them. I could not help but think of homeless Darian and what he must be going through. His self-exile from the shelter must be… Read full post »

THANK GOD for Dumb Women!

Hey ladies, would I love to give you a hand!

I, like most men, am seeking the holy grail of womanhood: someone even more pathetic than me. You see, it's the only chance I got! Problem is, I've burned my way through most of Dallas county so I had to move/…

I Saw A Good American Today

Couch Man was sunk in his couch of many sittings, his television IV directly connected to his remote control arm. His brain, however, was safely disconnected. No troublemaker, he! T'was a time for feeling good - or feel nothing at all. His motto was simple: Just let me be.

Beware the Leech Woman!

A lonely truth

The sun rose slowly in its dawning and with it came revelations of the light. Shaking off the morning fog, a gnawing feeling turned to horror as my eyes focused upon the bright new day.

Thanksgiving 2029: Nobody's Grateful

"What about your declining environment, the exhausting of your energy supply and the madness of honey to rules your lives? Surely, you don't deny those things!"

"I deny none of it! I'm a man of reality."

That's more like it
Happy damn Thanksgiving, fuckers!

What's the deal with all this gratefulness and giving thanks??  Even Surly is doing it and she's got "surly" in her name!  Traitor!  I'm thinking she needs to be re-monikered "iamsomewhatsurly".  So now I'm left as the only bitter bastard/… Read full post »

Janitor Man hated his job, hated his life, hated himself - pretty much hated everything. And he definitely hated meeting new people. The new receptionist was working late and he had already altered his routine once to avoid her. But now he was trapped, only her trash rRead full post »

Into the Light

It all started as a pinpoint of light.

Through the unseen roof down to the floor of the hazy dark Factory Grind it came; natural, pure and unapologetic. Delicate yet unstoppable, like a whisper of true love.

It made no known sense for it even to be possible -/
