"Go away. Leave me alone."

Fremont now

That was Fremont, fourteen years ago. His voice was gruff and scratchy like from a three day cold. The walls rising up around him were invisible but just as concrete as a castle. There was a note of finality, of/…

The Bottomless Bottle And The Walrus

It bothered me the first time I saw it sitting on top of my dinette set. I didn't remember placing that bottle there and I wasn't sure what it was but I didn't have time to check it right then and there. "I'll get to it later"  - which is/…

I came across this article today from The Atlantic, easily one of the funniest and saddest commentaries I've seen in a long while. "Disconnect" is the word I use to describe this century. Our words, our actions, our belief systems are continually diverging from reality. And it's getting to the point… Read full post »

"Life goin' nowhere, somebody help me

In The Belly Of The Beast

It's kind of fun poaching like this, camping inside this stone hut. Makes me feel like a boy scout again. You can tell someone used to live here but it's ours now. I love this outlaw feeling. Or maybe I'd better say we make our own laws./…

Defenders of the sick world unite! The monster's ball is in full swing, taking lives with gleeful abandon.
