Aesop's Fable Updated *lol*
One day a farmer's donkey fell down into a well. The animal cried piteously for hours as the farmer tried to figure out what to do. Finally, he decided the animal was old, and the well needed to be covered up anyway; it just wasn't worth it to retrieve the donkey. He invited all his neighbors to come over and help him. They all grabbed a shovel and began to shovel dirt into the well. At first, the donkey realized what was happening and cried horribly. Then, to everyone's amazement he quieted down. A few shovel loads later, the farmer finally looked down the well. He was astonished at what he saw. With each shovel of dirt that hit his back, the donkey was doing something amazing. He would shake it off and take a step up. As the farmer's neighbors continued to shovel dirt on top of the animal, he would shake it off and take a step up. Pretty soon, everyone was amazed as the donkey stepped up over the edge of the well and happily trotted off! Life is goi
The Ultimate Truths
Whenever I find the key to success, someone changes the lock. To err is human, to forgive is not a COMPANY policy. The road to success…….. is always under construction. Alcohol doesn't solve any problems, but if you think again, neither does milk. In order to get a loan, you first need to prove that you don't need it. All the desirable things in life are either illegal, expensive or fattening. Since light travels faster than sound, people appear brighter before you hear them speak. Everyone has a scheme of getting rich….. which never works. If at first you don't succeed…. Destroy all evidence that you ever tried. You can never determine which side of the bread to butter. If it falls down, it will always land on the buttered side. Anything dropped on the floor will roll over to the most inaccessible corner. 42.7% of all statistics is made on the spot. As soon as you mention something…… if it is good, it is taken…. If it is bad, it happens. He who h
What is that in the darkness Why is it laughing and pointing at me It's moving closer to me And I can't get away from it I can see it now but it's foggy i scream but nothing happens It laughs harder and louder as it gets closer Why must fate mock me this way I see plain and clear now And it hurts me on the inside Why must she do this to me Can't she tell it makes me cry Why must she despise me so The thing that hurts me the most Is that she is my own true self
Funny Poem
What is that foul beast I see Standing right before me It has glittering yellow eyes She acts happy but that is just a diguise She comes closer and I back away I'm afraid that I can't stay For fear that I won't survive When the demon comes alive She licks her lips in anticipation All she is full of is frustration I can feel my heart pounding inside my chest Her unleashed is like opening a hornets nest Why must she always come after me I must hurry up and flee She is smiling ready to attack Please I don't want to become her snack The creature that I'm talking about Is that of a demon cat who won't die out
People say I dream to much But I can't stop dreaming about your touch When I dream I dream of you Everything that I say is not untrue I just want to see your face And feel your embrace My love is unconditional towards you When we talk I want to look at you You are the one that I want Please don't hurt or taunt For that would break my heart You won't have to worry about me being a tart Because you are the one I long for For now I won't say anymore Except I love you and adore you
My heart skips a beat when I talk to you I smile whenever I think about you People stare but I don't care Their all jealous because they can't compare You make me feel like I am flying When you're around i never feel like crying Life is much more lively with love around Love was lost in my heart but now it is found Hearing your voice was more than perfect I felt that you could protect And my life was to be with you But for now I must bid u adieu For tonight I dream of you again

The Night Grandmother Died
The Night Grandmother Died by The night my Grandmother died. In retrospect my family has always had some sort of "psychic" experience. Family members would often know important information that was not yet told to them. We were the first to be at a friends side when some tragedy struck. I guess you could say that as a whole we were very empathetic. The night my grandmother died was to be the exception, no feelings were involved but actual sights and sounds were. My aunt who lived next door to us at the time, awoke at about 2;15 a.m. on the morning she died. She was hearing sounds from her living room, sounds she could only describe as shuffling footsteps, and they were heavy. My grandmother in life had weighed close to 300 lbs. and had problems with her knees since she was about 40. Another aunt living in New Orleans at the time, awoke from a nightmare at 2:15 a.m. to the sight of my Grandfathers casket(who
The Dead Here Still Walk
The Dead Here Still Walk by The story I'm about to tell scares the hell out of me just trying to recall it up from my memories, some things are best left dead and buried. After having read the stories on this site, I think it might help me rest easier having let others know of the terror I have experienced at the hand of the supernatural. It all began in 1992 when I moved into a house in Ironton Ohio, a small town in the southern tip of the state. I moved into an old house that was over a hundred years old. At first things were normal, considering getting used to the creeks and moans an older home emits when settling after the sun sets. About two weeks after I experienced my first encounter, I had just finished watching David Letterman, and proceeded with shutting up the house for the night. It was early October and the night air was beginning to get chilly, so I shut the windows I had opened and went into the
The Long Flame
The Long Flame by I'm not sure if this would be considered a real ghost story, but it happened and I can't explain why. In 1989, the woman who would have been my mother-in-law, Virginia Morris died after being very sick for a long time. She was a very religious woman, and her favorite Bible verse was John 3:16. In fact she had 316 J on her licsense plate on her car. She died just a few weeks before the wedding of her youngest son, John. My boy friend, and later my husband, was an usher at the wedding. They had lit two candle in the ceremony, one for Virginia, and one for the niece of the bride who had died a year before. All through the ceremony, I noticed that the candle for Virginia had a very long flame on it, which went back to normal after the ceremony was over. The minister had also mentioned John 3:16 in the ceremony, which I thought was odd, because it has nothing to do with marriage. After the ceremony

Best Joke Ever!!!!
Two couples were playing poker one evening. John accidentally dropped some cards on the floor. When he bent down under the table to pick them up, he noticed Bill's wife Sue wasn't wearing any underwear under her dress! :0 Shocked by this, John upon trying to sit back up again, hit his head :) on the table and emerged red-faced. Later, John went to the kitchen to get some refreshments. Bill's wife followed and asked, "Did you see anything that you liked under there?" Surprised by her :O boldness, John courageously admitted that, well indeed he did. She said, "Well, you can have it but it will cost you €500." After taking a minute or two to assess the financial and moral costs of this offer, John confirms that he is interested. She tells him that since her husband Bill works Friday afternoons and John doesn't, John should be at her house around 2 p.m. Friday afternoon. When Friday rolled around, John showed up at Bill's house at 2 p.m sharp an

Singin The Blues
Singin’ the Blues September 25, 2007 by Wayne Jackson To many, the fact that modern society appears to be immersed in filth and debauchery portends nothing but gloom. Others look on the brighter side and attempt to seize the opportunities. Back in the 1950s Melvin Endsley wrote the song titled, “Singin’ the Blues,” which was so popular it was recorded by more than one hundred artists. The first line starts: “I never felt more like singin’ the blues.” That sentiment seems to afflict many these days. It probably has been the case that almost every generation feels negatively about the prospects its future holds. When the crossbow was invented, it was thought to be the weapon that would bring an end to civilization. When the atomic bombs were dropped on Japan in August of 1945, during World War II, the same fear seized the world citizenry. Today many tremble at the prospects of man’s future. Various nations are developing nuclear weapons. In science, the Dr. Frankensteins wan
Just Me
I'm just a simple guy and living a simple life alone. No strings, no kids in my life right now. (No Kids, big mistake on my part I wish I would have had children) Things in my life are going pretty well for me now. I just returned to a profession I love, being a police officer. I live and work in the same town. Nice quite life style. I’m also an aircraft mechanic. I love working and flying small airplane. I hope to soon finish up my pilots license. I like going out once in a while but most of the time I enjoy just staying home. I love to cook, but it really sucks cooking for one (if you know what I mean). I’m pretty happy with my life now and where I’m at. Being as it is that I’ve just relocated back to Lake County near the Leesburg area I’m here and putting down some roots. The one thing I’m missing right now is someone special in my life. I’m not looking for short term; I’m looking for a life partner, that special woman that I can’t live without.

His Views On The Pavlik Vs Taylor Fight
12 ROUNDS WITH LENNOX LEWIS In the course of his brilliant career, Lennox Lewis has been in the ring with some fighters who could really bang. Mike Tyson, Evander Holyfield, David Tua and Hasim Rahman, to name a few. Lewis knows what to expect when you look across the ring and see a guy who wants to take your head off. The match-up between Jermain Taylor and Kelly Pavlik is truly a "Bangers Ball." No prisoners will be taken. So we asked Lewis, the retired heavyweight champ and HBO commentator to evaluate the fight. Okay, Lennox -- Ding ding! by Nat Gottlieb ROUND 1 (Size) I think Kelly has bigger muscle mass, and he's got a bigger chest and shoulders. That translates into a heavy puncher. When they say a guy is heavy handed --and they said it about me and about Kelly -- it doesn't come from the hands, it comes from the shoulders and chest. Jermain brings muscle definition. He's got a pretty tight muscle grouping. What this gives you is endurance, the ability to keep throwi
Game Preview: Cowboys Vs Rams 9-30-07
September 30, 2007 GAME PREVIEW: RAMS @ COWBOYS Rams (0-3) @ Cowboys (3-0) Sunday, September 30, Noon on Fox Week 4 Preview: The Dallas Cowboys return to the friendly confines of Texas Stadium Sunday to try to improve their perfect record to 4-0 after coming off of what many consider a statement game, beating the Bears 34-10 Sunday night in Chicago. This game also has the makings of a potential "trap" game. While Bill Parcells used props to get the message across, Wade Phillips only used words, and we'll see Sunday if that has the same effect. This game was fueled even more, as Issac Bruce guaranteed a Rams win on a St. Louis radio show. Playing the Rams also means the return of former Cowboy La Roi' Glover, so it should be interesting The Rams have a lot of holes on offense that the Cowboys defense should be able to exploit. It could be a very long day for Rams QB Marc Bulger, who is already playing with 2 broken ribs. Stephen Jackson isn't playing this week because of

FUBAR is for the 20something to 30something generation ... hence the some what crass approach to "customer service." That kind of reinforces my earlier statement not to take it too seriously. Just sit back and watch the show. Nice to see the kids having fun with a technology that I helped to bring in. Of course, I am not supposed to say that. Right? Heh Heh Heh.
A Texas cowboy appeared before St. Peter at the Pearly Gates. "Have you ever done anything of particular merit?" St Peter asked. "Well, I can think of one thing," the cowboy offered. "Once, on a trip to the Black Hills out in South Dakota, I came upon a gang of bikers, who were threatening a young woman. I directed them to leave her alone, but they wouldn't listen. So, I approached the largest and most heavily tattooed biker and smacked him in his face, kicked his bike over, ripped out his nose ring, and threw it on the ground. I yelled, "Now, back off!! Or I'll kick the #$%$)@ out of all of you!" St. Peter was impressed, "When did this happen?" "Just a couple minutes ago..."

Bull Hockey!!!
Once upon a time when I was young, I was an open book when it came to emotions. I was teased till I cried as a kid, lost my temper, celebrated happiness like it was the end of the world. But then as I grew up, I realized that emotions, like everything else about us, are tools. Tools that yes, do tell us that we are alive, but tools that should not control us. For example, exploding in anger to the point of hurting someone, or yourself. Allowing hurt and pain to consume you until you almost waste away in misery. Both of those are extremes, but I have seen them happen. Emotions should be understood, expressed, and controlled. However, there is a problem with that view, and I recognize that. Controlling your emotions can go too far. I did learn to control my emotions. However, the first time that my heart was broken, I locked down the grief and pain so hard, that it took years, and coaxing from a wonderful friend before I felt anything ever again. Now that I am dealing

The weathered look will not be upon him for thirty years. I used to look in my mirror for hours, Searching for that twenty-something man. Hidden somewhere in my face. I never caught more than a glimpse of you, Hiding behind my eyes. . . Until now. In the reflection of my television set, I caught you watching me. You're different than I'd pictured. Your hair is longer and you have a beard. But the gaze is the same. The fascinated way you watch me, When you think I'm not looking. I can tell that you see me in you. Tell me. . . Do you look back at me in the mirror, Spending hours searching for the face you had years ago. . . As I
As I Lie Here Wondering
As I lie here wondering I can almost hear two ants Floating down the river on a twig And I wonder where they're going. As I lie here wondering I can almost hear two ladybugs Gossiping to each other And I wonder where they learned it. Every little thing Goes on In it's own special way As I lie here wondering. August
August Finds His Purpose
Having just ended my brief career as a soldier, I returned to my favorite pastime. . . drifting. I was bound and determined never to settle into any profession again, but these things have a way of creeping up on you when you lease expect it. With little more than a years worth of freedom from the Army, I found myself enrolled in college taking an EMT (Emergency Medical Technician) course. Ever vigilant in my pursuit to be "one of the good guys" I maintained an A average for the first time anyone I know could remember. Then came the day that makes or breaks all young EMT wannabe's, A five hour shift in the emergency room of a hospital. Being the victim of my own habits, I was broke again, and had to borrow nearly everything I needed for my shift: Lab coat, stethoscope, note pad, and a white shirt. But thanks to several classmates, my friend Chris and I arrived at the ER fully prepared, at 5:00p.m. sharp. Now I can't speak for Chris, but I was nervous. I had only been in the class
Bigotry is the act of telling another, Exactly what and who they are. Telling instead of asking Preaching instead of talking Interpreting instead of listening Condemning instead of sharing Hating instead of learning Patronizing instead of loving Bigotry is ugly, And I am guilty of it. I have thought of others as "Job stealing wetbacks" or "lazy niggers" I have personally been offended by individuals So I struck back at the collective culture. I created them in my mind Hugely flawed, because I made them that way. I have been a bigot. It took another bigot to make me see. August
Bitter Temptations
You make it so tempting. With your fascination for suffering And my ability to inflict it What a pair we would make I could take you to the edge And make you dance Make you scream Make you beg. . . Over and over again. I could take you Where you so pathetically desire to be. Except you won't be satisfied. No matter how close you are to the edge, For you, it's still too far. Kissing my blade Sucking on my barrel Feeling your lungs ache for air Not enough, not enough And I'd rather please you than hurt you So I do the former by way of the latter And yet you want more And the hands that snuff your flame Could well be mine. You make it so tempting. With you calculated ice. Your adolescent arrogance. I want to slap you And call you the stupid bitch that you are The kicker is. . . You think I'm impotent, Because I won't. August
He is dressed in black tonight. Black as the night. Black as sin. Black as death itself. He wishes his skin were paler. At night he dreams of skin so pale and thin that it is translucent. Anything to appear darker, Closer to the Devil, Closer to death. The "Charles Manson" look is in. "Dracula," "Rasputin," Anyone with long hair and a tortured soul. Anyone with a festering dark secret. He has a secret. A dark dangerous secret. One that makes him play his moves flawlessly. No sudden eye movements. Maintain a constant display of indifference. In the old days it was different. A woman used to fear "a wolf in sheep's clothing." "A scoundrel," "A cad." This is far worse. He is a lamb in wolf's clothing. Bambi in the Devil's suit. Thumper in Charlie Manson's goatee. All the while, hiding his terrible dark secret. That deep down, beneath the pale skin and demonic features, Under the snobbish indifference and acidic stare, He is really someone. . . THAT YOUR MOTH
Building Blocks
(Partially inspired by/ stolen from, T.G.Spinosa) It has been said that hydrogen, Is the building block of the universe. Hydrogen is said to be the building block of the universe, Because it is the most abundant element in the universe. I disagree. Stupidity is far more abundant than hydrogen. Don't you hate rhetorical questions? Tell me again about short term memory. I'd give my right arm to be ambidextrous. The problem with apathy is. . .never mind. I'm sorry sir, you have no money in your account. Yes you did just deposit $100.00 yesterday. Yes I realize that you haven't made any withdrawals. I'm sorry sir, you have to go back to your home branch. Yes I realize that you deposited the money at this branch. Yes I realize that your home branch is across town. SIR, you can't ride that unicycle in here. No sir, I am not changing the subject. You just can't ride that in here. No sir, I realize that you're carrying it. I just want you to know. . .What do you mean? "
Call Me Captain
Some forage through life, In search of a rose. And others are led, As if by the nose. The flighty, I'm told, Just drift in the breeze. No control or direction, They simply take leave. They're just tossed to & fro, By the will of the wind. Don't know where they're going, Don't care where they've been. And others, like me, Like to play in the tides. We sail our own ships, With the stars as our guide. We seek out adventure, Fortune and fame. Searching for others, To join in our game. Through fair skies or storm, We drink wine and sing songs. Loving each moment, Even when things go wrong. With the wind at my back, And my love at my side. I haul up my anchor, And set sail with the tide. So tell me I'm captain, Or tell me I'm mighty. But whatever you do, . . . .Don't . . . . . tell. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .me . . . . . . . .I'm. . . . . .flighty!. . . . . August
Carpe' Diem
Well of course It wasn't my first time, Oh no, my first time was long behind me. But for some reason, I was still nervous. Desperate to do something, Restless for some action, I guess it never gets any easier. Heart pounding in my chest, Sweaty palms, Thoughts racing. What am I doing here? How did I let this happen? What do I do now? Before the first time, I would rush with reckless abandon. Desperate for climax, Always pushing my luck. Nowadays, I'm more careful. Regarding my scars as lessons, Rather than trophies. Yet, here I am again, Stuck for sure, Halfway up a mountain, Facing death. . .One. . .More. . .Time. He and I are old friends. He watches me with baited breath. Waiting for me to welcome him on. And for a moment. . . I consider it. Leap off this rock, Take control, Make my last act a determined one. It is a good day to die! I look back on my life. My only goal satisfied. If I have to go today, I can honestly look back and say: "My life has
Cold Comfort
I killed a mosquito today. Hey, it was him or me. Parasitic little blood sucker, Landing in my sideburn. Disrupting my search for the perfect pen. On instinct I struck. Slapping down my foe in an instant, I triumphantly viewed my kill, It was a ladybug. The word sorrow is inadequate, Remorse, regret, despair, Not enough to say what I felt. "I'm sorry." I said aloud. Remembering all of the times, I had been squashed recently. Misquitofied in haste, Presentation is everything. Cold comfort I'm sure, To my ladybug. Here is your epitaph, And I promise to be more careful, In the future. August
The Cynical Poet
If there's no coffee stains on the page, Then it's not really a poem. It's a note. I am the cynical poet. I'm reading poetry, Even though I'm sure that no one is really listening. It's not really a poem if you didn't cry over it, But if it rhymes it's still poetry, Just not good poetry. I am the cynical poet. The coffee cup is half empty. It just is O.K.! If it mentions your dog, Or your truck, Or your girlfriend, Then it's not really a poem. It's a country song! There may be poetry here tonight, There may even be good poetry here tonight. But there won't be real poetry here tonight. Real poetry, The kind that leaves you Feeling like the lemon wedge On the side of a vodka glass. I am the cynical poet, And you just can't find real poetry anymore. August
Don't ask me to begin For I excel at beginnings I can get the ball rolling Set things in motion Push us down the hill. . . Don't ask me to begin For I love beginnings I love it when it's new Endless possibilities Countless paths to explore Don't ask me to continue For I don't know how The ball rolls too quickly It's out of control There's too much momentum Don't ask me to continue I'm too easily swept away There's nothing new The paths are closed It's the same old slide Don't ask me to end this Endings are sad Endings are a lack of possibilities They are closed doors The antithesis of romance Don't ask me to end this For I'm sure that I can The emotional tourniquet goes on too quickly I don't want closure, I want exploration. So don't ask me to begin. August
Deadlines & Explanations
So you want me to write a poem, For you. Just who do you think I look like? Robert Frost? I don't write poems for you. I am the egocentric poet. I'm not an artist, I'm a smart-ass. Duh. . . You all have it so easy, With your coffee houses. . . And your open mics. . . Six different kinds of espresso, Not to mention Chai. Back in my day, We didn't have a French Press. Back in those days, If you wanted to read poetry. . . You had to take a jar of Foldger's Crystals, And go into the closet. And we would just sit there, In the dark, In the closet, Chewing Foldger's Crystals and reading poetry. And you couldn't come out of the closet. Because that opened up an entirely different can of worms. So let's get this straight once and for all. I am not an artist. I'm a poet. The egocentric poet. The insensitive poet. The "I write for me." poet. But you can call me an artist, If you really want to. August
There aren't any dragons. Yes I know, It seems sort of obvious when you say it like that. But it saddens me, There aren't any dragons, And there should be. Young men should be able to rescue desperate maidens. Fighting the good fight should guarantee victory. Right and wrong should be obvious, Black and white, clear as day, Never murky, never confused, But of course, that's every bit as fanciful, As the notion of dragons, Far too often I am reminded, That this is the real world, Where the good fight doesn't always cut it, People don't always mean what they say, Fairness is not a universal quality. It saddens me. There aren't any dragons, And there never really were. August
what is up with rating the picture i can't rate them why
Having finished my dinner, My belly was full of things that are impossible to pronounce, But it's fun to try. I opened my fortune cookie. For some reason I was hesitant to read it. What if this was the one true way of telling the future? What if all of our tomorrows, Were forecast on this piece of paper? I wouldn't have to ransack the morning paper, For my horoscope. I could end my search for a decent palm reader. I could stop trying to trans-channel Nostradamus. I would finally know your name. I would know our life. I would sleep soundly each night, Content in the knowledge That you and I are predestined for each other. I unfolded the fortune. "You are fond of Chinese food." So much for my future. Maybe I should enroll in chopstick school. August
People say I'm crazy People say I'm a geek People say I'm a nerd People say I'm a creep My friends say I'm OK A little weird but all right My parents say there's no way That I'll ever turn out right I listen to the radio I memorize the words I hear things inside myself That no one's ever heard I used to live inside myself Afraid to let anyone in I should have known that nobody out there Would understand just where I've been I read my books and poetry I understand them all I have built these walls around myself I have made them strong and tall I once thought that I found someone Who wanted to come in To share with me, her secrets And show me where she's been But just like all the other times It never worked out right We each wanted something different So we parted after a fight Then, there was someone else We needed each other as friends We keep each other inside ourselves Hoping it will never end I give to you the story of my life Laugh
A Letter To My First The hairbrush is gone The first gift you ever gave me I balked at the time But I loved it It was my little piece of you Now it's in a landfill somewhere Covered with the teeth marks of that damned dog The sunglasses are gone, lost On one of my many adventures Two dollars well spent on a cheap piece of plastic Every time I held them I thought of you The last of your gifts Swept away by life And what of the gifts I gave you? As hard as I try I can recall only one My most prized, kept my whole life Entirely intangible Do you treasure it as I did? Or has it evaporated into thin air With the hairbrush and the sunglasses? August
There it was, The look I had been waiting for The expression that says "I anticipate" "I hunger" "I burn" She showed me that look And I was filled with an incredible euphoria But the look was not for me And it bothered me, That the pair of eyes for which it was intended Didn't see it Didn't look for it Didn't hunger for that look It was wasted August
Golden Gifts
"you disappoint me in the way that you behave, and how you treat me." And I'm greeted with a slamming door. "Happy Father's day" I mutter as I walk away. My mind stumbling back across the years. Tripping flat. . . across each disappointment. The week before Christmas, Thrown out into the cold. No shirt. . . no shoes. . . no respect. What a disappointment I was, I survived. Even though you told the neighbors, And the police, That I ran away. What a disappointment. Every stumble, Every fall, And I can't seem to land on my face. And through this haze of resentment I wonder, Does the Chrysler building resent it's foundation? Does it dream of marble instead of concrete? Can this skyscraper admit. . . That without it's base, however flawed, It would crumble. Happy Father's Day My gift to you is silence. No retort to your slammed door. The last word is yours. It's over, you win. I'm the disappointment. August
G.o.p. Creed
I am a republican. A member of the American National Republican Party. Because I am proud of the organization I represent, I will always act in ways credible to the Republican Party, and the nation it serves. I will hold myself and my fellow Republicans to a higher standard of conduct, specifically when meeting those of opposing views. I will debate any issue on the merits, and never let a debate denigrate to name calling, or violence. Nor will I stand by and watch other republicans do so. I will treat my fellow Republicans, and my adversaries, with respect at all times. I will police my own organization. I will not hesitate to denounce a party member who has behaved disgracefully. For that individual represents me as well as the rest of the party. I will support free speech. Particularly when it disagrees with my own views. I will defend another's right to disagree with me. I will be open to new ideas, regardless of their source. I will be committed to being open minded, a
Grady Cooper & Rebecca Ann Kizziar
August second, nineteen ninety-seven Remember this day For this is the day of your wedding The whole is now greater than the sum of it's parts. Remember the love you feel this day. Remember it. . . When he leaves the seat up. . . When she's "in a mood". . . When he forgets to take out the trash. . . When she forgets to recap the toothpaste. . . Remember. . . you're a team. You're together forever, this is it. To have and to hold. For richer, for poorer, In sickness and in health, Through rain and shine, And most of all, All of those days that are only partly cloudy. Remember Rebecca, Remember Grady, When your partner deserves your love the least, That is the exact moment that they need it the most. Be slow to anger and quick to apologize. Speak your love often. Show your love always. And remember this day. August
The Great Mike
This poem doesn't make any sense. This poem goes on and on. It's not really a poem. It's just senseless rambling. . . and thus defines me. I am the senseless rambler. The man at the bus stop who mumbles to the wall. The man on the strip who talks to the lamppost. They are all me. Only I am more fortunate than most. I am not in the buffet line muttering about turkey gravy. My audience has ag. . . No wait. . . That came out wrong. My audience has agreed not to throw things or lock me away. The Java junkies are suckers for endless babble in the name of art. Here, have a tarot card. Good poetry, bad poetry, songs, screams, creative filibusters. . . even empty silence. . . hell, even full silence. I could ramble on and on. No really. . . I could. Is it my turn? If it's not I could go anyway. I'M IN CHARGE! August
The Guru
"you're a poet, right?" At last, a question I know the answer to. "Yes." Go with simplicity. "So then you know stuff right?" "Yes." What the hell, it worked once. "Great. What do I need to know?" Don't laugh, don't laugh. The coffee house steps are the new mountain. If he thinks that you're the Guru. . . There are worse fates. "What is it that you seek?" Solomon eat your heart out. "I wanna know how to do what you do." Ok Solomon, you can come back now. "What do I need to know for the open mic?" At last, a question I know the answer to. "Be confident." "Be brief." "If you can't be brief. . . Be spectacular." "Keep it simple" "If you can't keep it simple. . . Make your transitions short." "Remember your audience, Don't try their patience." "Believe in your words, Or no one else will." "And most importantly. . . When you're finished. . . Let people know." August
Happily Ever After
I wish I had a horse. Yes, It'd have to be a horse. Because then, I could jump onto my trusty stallion, And together, we could race across the countryside, After you. And you would see me on my charger, Obviously larger than life. And you would realize that yes, We should give this a shot. Happily ever after is an attainable goal. But I'd need a horse. It wouldn't work without the horse. The hero doesn't chase the girl in a Geo Metro. The stalker does, but not the hero. I wish I had a horse. I wish I had a carrier pigeon. Yes, that'd work. I'd send you a poem on wings of love. You'd receive it, and read it, and know, That we were meant for each other. Happily ever after has our names on it. But it'd have to be a carrier pigeon. Email just doesn't cut it. Because I was a geek before it was cool. I wish I had a carrier pigeon. I wish I had a kingdom. Yeah, a kingdom, that'd work. I could offer it to you, Risk it for you, Lead it into battle for you sword
I'll Be There For You.
When the creek gets high and dry And you've broken our canoe Well don't begin to worry Because I'll be there for you I'll pour the creek more water And fix your boat like new And it's just my way of saying Heather, I love you. When the road gets long and dusty And you've worn out your best shoe Without any hesitation I'll be there for you I'll sew your soles so nicely You'd think they were brand new And it's just my way of saying Heather, I love you. When you're feeling lost and lonely With no one to talk to Just smile, sit, and wait for me. Because I'll be there for you. I'll listen to your troubles Maybe tell a joke or two I love to make you smile because Heather I love you. You may wonder why I'm saying this What purpose could there be The reason that I'm here for you Is that you're always here for me I'll never let you down Just you wait and see And until we are together I'll be loving you, love me. August
Call me. Invest a quarter in our relationship. Let me be secure in the illusion, That if you spend a quarter for me, You will gladly walk across hot coals, Just to be by my side. I can convince myself that if you call, You are reaching for me across the wires. Give me the illusion that I am being pursued. Call me. Call me. Invest a few minutes of your day in our relationship. This will prove to me, That every waking moment you spend away from me, Is really agony to you. That you could so easily set aside precious time to talk to me. Call me. Call me. For every call is an investment, A precedent, A promise. It says that we are going somewhere, Instead of nowhere. It says we are connected. It declares that there is a future On which we can sit, And look back on all those promises, All those phone calls, All those investments. Call me. August
It's Out Of The Way Now.
So she says to me; "You've just made the biggest mistake of your life!" And I really had to think about that. Because I've crammed an awful lot of mistakes Into the past twenty-six years. Now we're not just talking, About when I shoved that copper wire, Into the electrical socket Or when I told my mother, What I really thought of her meatloaf. Those are pretty minor league compared to others. Like the time I asked my Drill Sergeant; "Drop what?" Or the time I let her kiss me, Although I knew she was pledged to another. I have made mistakes that have launched me across oceans, As well as continents. My mistakes have hurled me into as well as out of, Military service, broken houses, sleepless nights, And way too many relationships to recall, And this is the biggest mistake of my life? Oh well, At least I've gotten it out of the way. August
The Juggling Song
(to the tune of 'Turkey In the Straw.') Well I got a set of beanbags and I practice every day And I'm gettin' pretty good 'cause I can hear the people say; "He can juggle up above his head and juggle to the side He could juggle with a blindfold should he ever feel inclined." (Chorus) Juggle today, Juggle tonight. Throw things at your friends and there's never a fight You'll be glad you practiced all the time When the audiences tell you that you're doing really fine. I can juggle on the floor and I can juggle in a chair We can juggle all alone or we can juggle in a pair We can juggle face to face or we can juggle side to side We can juggle 'round another even if he's pretty wide Chorus Well I can juggle axes I can juggle magazines And I never juggle apples but I juggle tangerines I can even juggle bowling pins and other heavy stuff I can juggle flaming torches which is really pretty tough Chorus I can juggle on a mountain I can juggle on a plane. I c
Julie's Poem
So you really wanted a poem. O.K. fine, this poem is for you. Without preamble, without introduction. Because poets aren't any good at introductions, We're too busy pouring our existence onto paper, When the ink dries. . . There should be more. All the metaphors should have footnotes. Cliff Notes should print a guidebook to my poetry. How do you like your poem so far? What's that? Not what you expected? You expected the literary equivalent Of flowers and chocolate? Instead, you get a minestrone of ideas. An incomprehensible mix of ingredients, Put together for no other reason Then their availability. They were the leftovers. Like me. Because now we are apart, So all the laughter, tears, Sweaty nights, and frustrating moments, Are behind us now That door is closed, locked and chained. The last of your words ringing in my ears, With the slamming of that door. Without me having ever written you a poem. So here it is, your poem. Hope you like it. Can't talk now
The Kiss
It was a kiss straight out of a storybook, The kind you feel in your toes. The kind that wars are fought over, Quests are ridden for, Dragons are slayed for, Kingdoms are lost for, It was that kind of kiss. And now I know what breathtaking means, What desire means, What meaning means, It was that kind of kiss. It was the kind of kiss that. . . spoke. It spoke of beginnings, It spoke of possibilities, It said, "I want you." It said "goodbye." It was that kind of kiss. It was the kind of kiss that. . . inspires. It was the kiss of a muse, Of a true love, Of a stranger. It was that kind of kiss. It was that kind of kiss. And like all kisses, It had to end. August
At The Table
Down to the felt. Don't bother to count your chips, You've been dealt a mighty blow. Excuse time; 'But I did everything right!' 'He shouldn't have done that.' 'I had bad cards.' Done now? There are other games. Other tables. This game appears to be too rich for you. Maybe this isn't your calling. Not everyone's cut out to be a gambler. Even if you turn this game around, Get off the felt, Grab the high stack, There'll still be other losses, Other upsets, Do you really want to go through that again? The dealer looks to me to see if I'm going to walk or play. I'm still licking my wounds. Maybe I should become a farmer, far less risk. Plowing fields, harvesting crops, dreaming of cards. At the table, I never dream of farms. Down to the felt. Don't bother to count your chips. I pick them up, Toss them into the pot, Blind. I'm a gambler, And I'm all in. August
A Lasting Impression
It's supposed to be easier than this. Your memory is supposed to fade, Like a photograph. My God it's been a year! Since I first saw you, Since I first touched you, Since I first spoke your name. And after all this time, I still remember. And there he he was. Jealous of our intimacy, Wanting to crack our code. Knowing that with every smile, Every wink, Every touch, Meant something that he couldn't fathom. And then you were gone. . . Quicksilver is not to be held, Save for a moment. No one understands Mercury better than I. But I still feel empty at your passing. It's been a year. That feeling should fade. It's supposed to be easier than this.
Letter From Exile
You asked for a letter. But what am I to say? What exactly is it that you want to hear? Do you want to hear that I miss you? I could tell you that I miss you. But that's not the truth. The truth won't fit in a simple single line. The truth won't look so good on paper. The truth is, that when you send me away. . . I feel relieved. I feel happy to be back in the one place that I'm comfortable in. The unknown. By myself, on my own. But that's not what you want to read. You want an invisible bond to link us together across the miles. That tether no longer exists. You severed the umbilical cord long ago. And I've long since given up on the idea of repairing it. You simply don't like me. Your mind is made up, and getting to know me won't change it. How I feel doesn't matter to you at all. So here's my letter from camp, Mom. Fifteen years late. I'm on my own and doing fine. With. . . indifference. Your son. August
She said to me, "I want to give you a reason to come back." And I thought; That must be love, A reason to come back. She gave me a memory, unlike any other. But aren't they all? I came back. Planning to stay. I had my reasons. But she was gone. And I wept. For I thought I had given her, A reason to wait. And I thought; That must be love, A reason to wait. And I realize, all alone, Love has no reason. August
Miss Muffet I Presume?
On the blanket, a spider had landed, Walking his little spidey path. I had no interest in feeling his spidey feet, As they carried him across my bare leg. So I held out the paper, a compromise, A spidey ladder, a spidey lifeboat to safety! But Spidey wasn't going for it. He apparently thought my leg held much more adventure. An anonymous woman snatched the paper from my hand. She held it for this fickle spider and he climbed aboard. And I thought; 'How neat.' 'She likes saving spiders.' 'She is having fun being a spidey savior.' Suddenly, she overturned the spidey-raft, And unceremoniously dumped spidey into a bush. Much to my surprise, she turned to me and said; "Yeeech! I hate spiders." August
Mr. String
A friend of mine gave me a ring, And said that I must see the things, This man can do with only strings. "With string," he said "This man is king." This "King of string" was knot too tall, He was sort of stringlike after all. He said "Come on, we'll have a ball." "I'll show my tricks to one and all." He first said "Not, upon a string." And then with his wrist, did a fluid-like thing, And I thought him a bit of a ding-a-ling, For indeed, it was, upon the string. He next said "Not, behind the back." But indeed, behind him was where it was at. "Not around the foot, not from above." Each time he said "not" but then, there it was. He threw "slips" and "normals" and "cosmics" too, And more than one around his shoe. Then upon a bottle he placed anew, A golf ball! Then he strung that too! I approached him and said; "Mr. String you're hot" "I really liked your show a lot." "Can you tell me what it is you've got?" He grinned and replied, "you know. . . . . .I th
Muses & Love
Sometimes I lose the words. And I'm a poet. . . So it's not as if they're behind the couch. And you'll never believe that I'm swept away. When normally, the words flow from my tongue with ease. As if I'd been practicing for years. But you can't lie in a poem. This isn't rehearsed. I'm winging it here. I'm making it up as I go, But that's not quite. . .accurate. I'm not, making it up. I'm thinking it, I'm living it, I'm breathing it, I'm being it into existence. I'm writing it down, Because you can't lie in a poem. The muses won't allow it. And one of those muses, Is a six foot two inch tall, blond, German Dominatrix in full fetish gear, Who only visits me twice a year, and doesn't leave until she's completely satisfied. And yet sometimes. . . I lose the words. And I stare mutely into your eyes. Where in God's name is the leather fraulein when I need her? Because you won't believe in love at first sight. Not from a poet. Not from a charmer. Not from me. But
Oh That Is Just Sooo Cliché
Can you believe that? What's your sign? Can I buy you a drink? Everybody's doing it man. As if. . . Whatever. . . A watched pot never boils. A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush If you kill two birds with one stone. Why, there's more than you can shake a stick at. You don't say. . . A stitch in time saves nine. Well I'll be. . . Haven't we met before? Was it in Paris? If I said you had a beautiful body would you hold it against me? Take a long walk off a short pier. Walk west till your hat floats. Get lost Take a hike Drop dead Don't do me any favors. Trust me. I'm not that kind of girl. But will you respect me in the morning? Who loves ya baby? Alice, you're the greatest. He's dead Jim. To the Batcave Robin! All righty then. Hey dude Awesome man Groovy Like, totally tubular. Bitchin Hey buddy, spare a dime? Can I take your order? You want fries with that? But of course it's true. I'm on the spot here. Would I lie to you? Here's to you.
My Best Time
Well, she wasn't eighteen She was closer to forty And she didn't have a body like a supermodel More like an aging housewife There were scars on her stomach And she was self conscious about them But I wasn't there to see her scars I was there to hear her laugh I was there to drink in her eyes I was there because every time she looked at me. . . Every time she touched me. . . Every time she called me love She made me believe That there was nowhere else on earth That she would rather be, Than in my company right then And I was nervous It wasn't as if I'd never. . . Just, not a lot. . . The wine was good The lights went off The music came on Dun dun dun da da dun dun Dun dun dun da da dun dun That song from Queen I think Dun dun dun da da dun dun Dun dun dun da da dun dun Under Pressure And the beat was playing havoc with my rhythm And the wine was threatening my stamina But still she called me love She kept telling me, In a hundred subtle ways This was whe
My Love
My love for you is like a chain saw, Rough-cutting the forest of my resolve. My love for you is like a train wreck, Determined to happen, horrible yet fascinating. My love for you is like a fable, The longer it goes, the more meaning I find. My love for you is like a gargoyle, Meant to frighten evil, but sometimes frightens all. My love for you is like a cave, Dark and dangerous, but exiting. My love for you is like a madness. (No explanation necessary.) My love for you is like a cancer, Eating away at me from the inside. My love for you is total, Just thought you'd like to know. August
Never **** With A Juggler
I was In the Army. (Hard to believe, but true.) My duties that day were to be on gate guard. I received a phone call from inside the main building, so I handed the gate key to my friend Doogie. When I returned, Doogie was gone! And sitting by the gate, surrounded by his evil henchmen, was my arch-nemesis, Stewart. Obviously, Doogie was called away, and the key was in the hands of one of these mindless goons. Things did not look well for our hero. "Who has the key?" I asked. "You're the gate guard. Why don't you have the key?" sneered Stewart. I was not about to fall for his little game. Before I had come back outside, Stewart had been bragging to his cronies. "Watch this, I'm gonna **** with August." "Stewart," I challenged, "Give me the ****ing key." (I apologize, but we really did talk that way back in the Army.) "Here!" cackled Stewart, and with a flick of his hand, he threw the keys point blank at my chest. Now nearly everyone I know will be happy to verify the
I'm the host, if that's ok. I mean if it's not ok I. . . Well I guess I can't do anything about it, So I hope it's ok. Since I am the host, I'd like to read If that's ok If you don't mind, Are you sure? I want to read about. . . My body parts and. . . My sordid relationships, And my under-active hypothalamus gland. But I won't talk about sex! Is that ok? I'm the host. August
Nothing So Original
As I walked through the darkness I was startled by the light. Not scared or uplifted, just surprised. It flashed for half a second Deep into the night. And I'll never know the reason why it came. This is the story of darkness And how it came to light Nothing so original Nothing so out of sight In darkness there is comfort In light you are alone. Does it have to be one or the other? Is there a combination of both? The combination is tricky You're never quite sure where you stand. Darkness and light is quite a mix You go there when you can. When I was in darkness I didn't feel alone. It was only when the light came in That I saw what was my home. It showed me that when darkness came I just couldn't see what was there But what was there was nothing There was nothing anywhere. I've made my peace with darkness I live inside the gray. Just enough darkness for cover Just enough light for day August
Nothing So Original (rewrite)
It flashed for half a second Deep into the night. And I'll never know the reason why it came. This is the story of darkness And how it came to light Nothing so original Nothing so out of sight In darkness there is comfort In light you are alone. One extreme or the other. A combination of both? A tricky combination. Never quite sure where I stand. Darkness and light is quite a mix I go there when I can. When I was in darkness I didn't feel alone. It was only when the light came in That I saw what was my home. It showed me that when darkness came I just couldn't see what was there But what was there was nothing There was nothing anywhere. I've made my peace with darkness I live inside the gray. Just enough darkness for cover Just enough light for day August
Ode To Agnes Depesto
Part I. You called me on the telephone, But as you can tell, I'm not at home. Now don't begin to whine and moan, Just leave your message at the tone. Part II. You might be tired, you might be hurried, You might even, be scared or worried. I'm not here now, but don't you weep, Just leave your message, at the beep. August
Ode To My Hat
I'm only a hat And I stay in my place Up there on your head Making shade for your face I'm only a hat The mark of true wit I sit slightly askew Just awaiting each tip I'm only a hat And my uses are many As to questions of style. . . You know I have plenty. August
I don't know what to offer you. I'm a poet, So you know I'm not rich. Any good looks I have, Are merely a trick of the light. I don't know what to offer you. I'd be your champion in war, But my warring days are in my past. I'd be your genius, But when I look at you, I know that will never be. I can't even offer you witty conversation. You turn me into a fool. In your presence I'm soaring, Flying, Falling, Drooling, Giggling, Dying, I'll be your fool. And that's my final offer. August
One Chance
That was it. The door is closed. You had your chance. I'm a one chance man, A true romantic. Anything can happen. Anything is possible. I throw caution to the wind, Wear my heart on my sleeve, I'm ready for anything. Except that. Except those words of yours that cut through me. Not like a knife, But rather like a branding iron. Which instead of leaving an imprint on the surface, Gouged through to my bones And scarred me, in the marrow. I may still enjoy your company, But you won't receive mine. I'll only give you what's on the surface. It won't be me. Or at least not any part that matters. I will never again expose my underbelly To that branding iron tongue of yours. You wounded me once, And therefore lose the opportunity To ever do so again. I should probably tell you all of this, But I won't. The old adage is true. Knowledge is power. And I'm through with giving power to you. It's a shame that this happened. I really did care for you. It's too bad th
On Mardi Gras, Hugh Hefner, And Exposure
Mardi Gras, certainly one of the most renowned parties of the world, where you can see all the babes, boobs, butts, and beers you could ever hope for. Where else would the Hefner limo be that week but in 'The Big Easy?' I found myself actually shaking hands with the ultimate man's man himself. (Great handshake by the way.) But this isn't an ass-kissing story to pay homage to the founder of Playboy. In the days that followed, men and women alike were captivated by the story of my encounter, and I began to wonder why. What is it about this man that appeals to so many? I decided that it wasn't the money. Wealth is more common than it used to be, and it still can't buy you charisma. No, the answer lay deeper. Flashback Two of my charming lady friends, (We'll call them Rebeca & Marie) were having a discussion about Victorian dresses, and more specifically corsets and the wonderful cleavage they provide. Marie, whose figure resembled that of an ironing board said; "No way, ain't hap
For Paul
Send me a ticket for Christmas. A heart attack makes me travel. Death and weddings are the only things that get me to Jersey anymore. So I will put up with an airport at Christmas. I will tolerate my relatives. I will brush aside questions as to me financial welfare, my moving back to Jersey, my estranged father. I will ignore taunts from my mother and sister. I will do this because of your heart attack Paul. Paul. . .That's all I've ever called you. Although technically, Grandpa would be correct. Of all my relations, I have never crossed words with you. There are no slammed doors, or angry shouts in our past. There is only cozy conversation. About warm coats, hot pies, good meals, pretty lights on the Christmas tree, and always, a piece of candy. I am here in New Jersey, away from all control. I am at their mercy. But it's not so bad. I am not as angry as I used to be. So here I am, in a room full of people that really don't like each other, and everyone turns to me. I am the br
Perspective I.-vi.
I. My Eyes He's a giant of a man He wears a saintly glow With love and pride he teaches me All I'll need to know. With loving arms that hold me Friendly words and playful games A sense of humor, grace and charm I pray to turn out the same. II. His Eyes He's a noisy little thing But cute, I'll give him that He learns things quickly, like his Dad He's sharp, just like a tack. But small and fragile most of all Is what he seems to be He cannot make his way at all He must rely on me. III. My Eyes He's drained another bottle Ignore him, it's the beer Remember how he used to be Keep that image clear. You owe him for the things you are No matter what he does Know him for the man he is But love the man he was. IV. His Eyes He's always saying something smart What a noisy little brat He won't amount to anything You can depend on that. But weak and worthless most of all Is what he seems to be He cannot make his way at all But he'll get
'Twas a week before Portland And all through the houses The jugglers were busy Clicking their mouses! Sending out email With due date and time, To be sure all would know When each, would arrive. They'll be coming by car They'll be coming by plane, They'll be coming in droves Just to play in the rain. A family reunion Held every tax time Whose family? You ask Ask me, I'll say; "Mine." So MaryLou, David, Bring John Price, and Gail, And better bring Travis. (Go ahead, post his bail.) Come Mark, Shannon and Peter, Bronwyn & Gomez And please take some pictures So we can show them at Lopez. August
I think that I shall never see A poem written just for free A poem written just for fun Without compulsion from anyone A poem not for looming deadlines And certainly not for fancy headlines A poem written from good and right And not from staying up all night No complaints of earthly woes Of righting wrongs or fighting foes No teenage angst upon the page No words of sorrow, fear, or rage "A poet's life is hard." It's said "No guarantee of daily bread." So poets, please do what you like I'm headed to the open mic August
Poem Slivers
There should be a poem here But I don't have one It's not ready It's still hiding behind my eyes Lurking beneath my fingertips Gestating in my brain There should be a poem here It should tell you how much I love you Or how fucked up the world is And it should mention frustration And ecstasy Or something about a statue Chipped from ancient stone There should be a poem here But there are only fragments Shards of ideas Poem slivers That can't yet have their own page But their time will come There should be a poem here One day there will be August
Poet's Block
When you're a writer, things are pretty simple, There's grease stains on the keyboard And your desk smells. Like it was manufactured by KFC And to hell with coffee cups, Straight from the pot baby! I'm cranking out twenty pages a day here. Because I'm a writer And that's what writers do, they write! And if a day goes by that I don't write, It's called writer's block, And that spells disaster baby! Because it's a slippery slope that you just can't climb up Without an act of God to help you. But what if you're not a writer? What if you just write poetry. . . Every once in a while. What if you drink coffee only with friends, And you wouldn't be caught dead within half a mile of KFC. I'm an artist baby! It's my job to be misunderstood. So what happens if I don't write? One day. . .two days, Three months? Six? When does procrastination cross over into writers block? Where's the line? I don't know. But it's a good thing I thought of this and wrote it down. Becaus
"Why on earth do you love me? Where did I go right? What did I do to earn my way, Into your arms tonight?" And tears mixed with sweat, As we lay in warm embrace. An excess of emotion, Spent in way too small a space. I kissed her tears and stroked her hair. I sighed my biggest sigh. I thought; "I say I love you, And your response is 'Why?'" Her eyes met mine and searching. . . Pleading. . .groping for the truth, Accustom to rejection, Always needing proof. "I could go on about your beauty, Or how you sing your siren's song. I could claim it's your laugh, your lips, your eyes. . . Only I would know that's wrong." "The truth is. . .I've no idea, Why it is I love you so. I can only say when I'm near you, You make me want to grow. When you're near I watch my posture. I stand up straight and tall. You inspire me to ascend the heights, And never fear the fall." Her breathing eased, she'd gone to sleep. Her question satisfied. And I asked the silent
There is a time, In the future, When my forehead will not be wrinkled in fury. My breathing will not be so forced. My hands will not wring impulsively. This is all theory mind you. For all I know I could stay mad forever. But that doesn't sound like me. So I take it on faith. My pulse will slow. Not that I want it to. I WANT TO BE MAD! I WANT TO REVEL IN THE INJUSTICE THAT HAS BEEN HEAPED UPON ME! I WANT TO SHOUT FROM THE ROOFTOPS "YOU'RE NOT FAIR!" Theory says that this will pass. Experience says that this will pass. I don't want this to pass. I LIKE BEING MAD! I WAS WROnged! I get to be mad! Bold print and capitol letters seem to fade. It's really not in my nature to stay so upset. I am mad. You treated me unfairly. Now let's fix it. August
Reflection Point
(My Weekend As Frosty The Snowman) Looking back on it all, I have to say, That I probably should have tried drugs Now I'm not saying, That drugs are a great lifestyle choice Or anything like that But it would be nice To have people look at me and say "It was the drugs that got him there." Scapegoats are hard to come by Especially when your head isn't lost, In an artificial haze No, there's nothing artificial, about this haze 97% curiosity, 2% stupidity, and 1% luck Should have tried drugs. August
Hello! I didn't think I'd see you this soon. Although sometimes I've felt as if you'd never get here. But I've always felt sure that we would meet. All the times that I've seen you, On the old slides of my father's. That strapping young man with his face in the wind. Never tired. Never weary. Any scars he carries are still fairly fresh. The weathered look will not be upon him for thirty years. I used to look in my mirror for hours, Searching for that twenty-something man. Hidden somewhere in my face. I never caught more than a glimpse of you, Hiding behind my eyes. . . Until now. In the reflection of my television set, I caught you watching me. You're different than I'd pictured. Your hair is longer and you have a beard. But the gaze is the same. The fascinated way you watch me, When you think I'm not looking. I can tell that you see me in you. Tell me. . . Do you look back at me in the mirror, Spending hours searching for the face you had years ago. . . As I
Rejection Notice #721
I'm looking over your application, And there seems to be some confusion. You don't really meet our criteria. Yes I know. . . I said I was looking for someone honest. But what you fail to realize is, That means I'm looking for someone honest, Who will gladly tolerate dishonesty from me. So, do you see the dilemma? Yes, yes, When I said I valued openness, It was your mistake to assume that I, Was willing to be a participant in said openness. I'm looking for someone with no walls, Because I have more than enough to spare. And I'll thank you very much Not to start your self-serving rhetoric About how I deceived you, And lied to you, And my hypocrisy in general, Because I've been there mister. And you're just sorry that I screwed you Before you screwed me. And you can take that any way you like! And just because you came in here, With exactly the credentials that you claimed, Don't think for one second that proves anything. I know your type. You artists change wi
A lifetime crawling out of a hole worse than debt Crawling out of shadow Crawling out of despair Standing alone in the middle of a war zone A traitor to both sides. Trained by the best to lie, Deceive, Spy, report back, And most of all, keep secrets. Intelligence is the key to any battle. I am tired of this lack of intelligence game. I am tired of being tried and retried For war crimes I was conditioned to commit. IT WAS WAR!!! I did what I was trained to do. I served my time as a P.O.W. Then I was released into society, A soldier without a battlefield But the war continued and I rejoined it, Desperate to be in familiar surroundings, Behind enemy lines. . .fighting to survive. Eventually, government agencies stepped in. The factions were told to stop their war. But they find ways to carry on to this very day, Like two schoolchildren, Who throw things at each other when the teacher isn't looking Neither side knows why they're fighting It's just a twenty-year-o
So long ago I thought them gone, I was sure they would not return. My pieces all are back to stay, You would think by now I'd learn. A soldier died on the movie screen, He was gone, and gone for good. A piece of me came back to stay, For when Taps was played, I stood. I was playing with my juggling toys, I was lost in idle thought. Another piece came back to stay, For when kids came by, I taught. A friend of mine had a desperate need, To be held, and listened to. Another piece came back to stay, I can be a blanket too. A lyric came to me one morn, So I wrote it to a friend. Another piece came back to stay, In the poem I did send. A year ago my life was changed, What I was had been erased. Four pieces ran away that day, But I've found, they've been replaced. August
And how can you be so calm after three years? How can you just say hello? With no sorrow, no guilt No feeling whatsoever For nearly a year you drank of me Until I thought every breath would be my last Your affections became all-consuming They ate at me like a cancer So I cut it out I exorcised my demons and I told you; "NO." You vanished, gone in smoke but not flame You never even said goodbye And three years later you chide me for not writing I wrote you And my letters were heard in coffee houses across the country! I cared, I wept, I hurt, I bled Then affixed the emotional tourniquet I cauterized the wound With the passionate flames of survival And I went on Never dreaming that the wound would be reopened But it has And I discovered something That deep gouge is gone This pain has no substance It's a hangnail, a paper cut, A memory And all you can say is hello. August
O.K. So I used to be a stage manager. And I managed this play see, And I got dragged through the worst experience of my life. I mean it was painful. The long hours, the whiny actors, The director! And don't even get me started on what happened, Once the show finally began. But it's over now, at last, And I don't ever have to worry about doing theater anymore, Because the theater manager/ my ex-girlfriend, Told me specifically; "You'll never work in this town again." But in a way, I feel bad. I feel that with this show, a part of me has died. So to symbolize this, I chopped off my hair. But it didn't end there, oh no! Without my ponytail I was confused, Disoriented. An easy mark for any smooth talker that happened upon me. Before I knew it, I was a victim. Lost in a stream of unconsciousness, I awoke only to find myself, Gainfully employed. . . In Bellevue! It didn't look good for our hero. I stumbled into a coffee house, Desperate for refuge. Staggering wil
A Ring
The ring on your finger, so shiny and new, Has extinguished the torch I have carried for you. All the hopes and the dreams of the life I had planned, Have disappeared, leaving me lost in the sand. I'm alone in the desert, broken heart in my hands, And there's nothing to blame, but that little gold band. With a diamond that sparkles so shiny and new, That I have to stop mourning my lost love for you. I think of the man, to whom you are engaged. No, my blood doesn't boil. I'm not filled with rage. The two of you fit. It's easy to see; His only flaw, is that he, isn't me. Enough of these phrases! You don't need my rhymes. Just know, when you need me, I'll always make time. That ring on your finger, brings my hopes to an end. But I'll always be proud, to call you my friend. August
It was a lot like a movie. There was darkness, Danger, A mysterious Russian girl With alluring eyes. And I remember the cold war, The Day After, Perestroika and Glasnost. "That was long ago." she tells me. "Back when I was a child." Thanks a lot. "Is for you." And she hands me a present, An original drawing. This mysterious Russian girl. It was like a movie, She took my arm, And we promenaded down the street. I never felt so proud. The Poet And The Painter A fairy tale. August
Send Me A Picture
Send me a picture. Prove to me that you're still the same. That you haven't changed at all. And that if you have changed, You won't do it anymore. Your hair, your clothes, your face, your body, That scar on your shoulder and that pimple on your nose. Send me a picture. Send me a picture. I want you captured on Kodak paper. I want to capture you in my hand, Keep you in my wallet. I want to pull you out and look at you, Completely unchanged, Anytime I choose. Send me a picture. Send me a picture. Prove to me that you're still on the planet. That your future is still ahead of you. That all possibilities still exist. That you still care. Send me a picture. Send me a picture. Let me compress your 3-D world, Into a flat 3X5 piece of captured light. Flat, and cold, and simple. Send me a picture. August
28 September Baby!
"Sit down Joe, this round's on me, And don't let that redneck bother you." I hadn't been called Joe in years. Not since I wore the green, And that thirty-something Red necked punk with the crew cut was a wannabe. He had never served, I was sure of it. "Junior over there is the son of one of the members, He saw your long hair and didn't understand, You were that young once, you remember." "Yeah, I remember, thanks for the beer Sarge." I knew, just as he had known. Of course, the fact that we were in the local VFW sort of helped. We talked and drank, each of us picking up every other round. Others stepped up to share a beer every once in a while, All the important stories were told. From Pearl Harbor to The Buldge, To Tet, The Gulf, and my own African adventure. At last call, I raised my glass and said. "Here's to all in uniform. The friends we lost along the way. Here's to those who covered us, And helped us reach this day. Here's to those who faithfully serve, A
I am not E.F. Hutton. When I talk, nobody listens And I talk a lot just to make sure In that respect I'm more like Andy Rooney Now I'm OK with the fact that nobody listens to me It frees me to say whatever I want Whenever I want I can crack a joke Or make a snide comment Anytime at all Except when I write things down Because I'm what's called a POET That's big P big O big E big T And apparently that means That whatever I write down on paper Comes straight from my soul Is filled with deeper meaning Is really a cry for help! It wasn't always this way When I first started writing People would ask me questions like; "Was that about me?" or "Did that really happen?" Nowadays they just know it's them Or that I'm deeply troubled inside Imagine that. . . Me, taken seriously It could happen. Even Andy Rooney says something of merit Once in a while August
Short Cuts
The final curtain goes tonight I've loved this wild, bumpy flight Yvette is always in a rush The Lighting Opp? He's on the bus. Mrs. Sorken steals the plant She's everybody's favorite aunt Naomi surely is a wit Deep in the conversation pit Johnna comes off very meek Till John comes out so very chic Amanda's quite the southern belle Ginny sure can make her yell Tom's head is surely in a spin Forgot his paper, yet again. I know how Lawrence gets his kicks But I hate those stupid swizzle sticks Intermission's always fun Did August remember to load the gun? The Announcer wants to cancel the show But Tommy and Grandma, where would they go? Lettie's fine she's got the gun The adulteress and homo? I guess they're done The music now is all the rage A hoe-down's going on backstage The Operator is an ace No desperate look upon his face And Gretchen, lonely in her house With extra food stashed in the couch Sally says she has small hips And Zelda with those hairy pits
"But it hurts it hurts!" And I want to scream at him "Of course it hurts, but it's just a sliver It hurts until you take it out, then it's over. If only I had your problems. You don't have to pay the rent, Or work all day, Or look up every damn word in the dictionary Because your spell checker knows fewer words than you do. My problems are real! My problems are important!" But of course I can't say these things. If he could, This little boy would gladly take on The burden of my troubles Just to be free of that little sliver. I remember the terror of slivers. That terror has shrunk with time. Will my current slivers shrink as small, If I simply wait twenty years? "It hurts! It hurts!" "I know it hurts." I soothe "There you go, all done. Go play, and watch out for slivers. August
A Soldier's Question
Dirty socks and broken cots, No pillows on which to sleep. Artillery in the morning, Bunkers collapsing in a heap. So many sandbags left to fill, I've built so many walls. I'm surrounded by a maze of sand, A labyrinth four feet tall. No flag to boast our country, No song to shout our name. Just endless shifts of roving guard, And prayers for one more day. I'm in a backward country. Why? I do not know. I remember wanting to come here, But now I want to go. But I believe in Duty first, Wherever there's a need. My Uncle Sam gave me a call. I did right, and I took heed. With my buddy and my rifle, I go to the marketplace. I ask the man why we are here, And a smile comes to his face. His eyes are weak and hollow. His teeth are yellow-green. He speaks as if I am not there, As If I'm just a dream. "I have many children." Says this strange decrepit man. "They once were very hungry, So I searched throughout the land." "All around me was the fighting, I h
Strange But True
In 1988, or 89 I decided to kill some time by opening a leather crafting kit that had been purchased at a garage sale. The kit was missing pieces, but there was enough there to make a wallet. For about a month I worked the leather, tracing patterns, using punches, slowly putting together what turned into a one of a kind, very nice wallet. I planned to give it to my son one day if I had one. In 1990 I got mugged. My wallet was taken and I got a bloody nose for my trouble. I've often wondered what happened to that wallet. In June of 2001 I was working in the fast-paced glamorous world of fast food. About fifty miles from where I was mugged. One day a customer came into the store, when he payed for his meal, I noticed his wallet. I asked to see it, and I asked him where he got it. He bought it in a thrift store about ten years ago. It was a little worn, but in excellent condition. I explained that I had made that wallet, that It had been stolen from me, and then I offere
Supply Run
Staring out the back of the pick-up truck, Rain in my face, eyes half shut. Past the man with all the canes, Into the streets filled with rain. Hold my rifle, safe and low, Stick held high, give them a show. Watch for rocks in this cursed rain, Truck hits a pothole, I'm in pain. Windshield smashed, we fall on the floor. "Watch the bumps! I can't take much more!" Back on my seat in the driving rain, Watch for rocks, ignore the pain. The sniper is out there, on these streets, Crossing the rooftops on silent feet. We play this game almost every day; Will I be shot, or go on my way? Thousands of people line the lane, Waving to soldiers, ignoring the rain. Some give us smiles, some give us jeers, Some throw their rocks, and some show their tears. The flooded street is a muddy maze. The driver plunges through, half crazed. Every bump could be a mine. Every moment, our last in time. Around the circle, past the square. "I'm soaking wet! How long till we're
When do I get to be unreasonable? When is it my turn? Why do I have to be the bigger person here? I want to be small today. I want to blame you. I listened Waited Gave into your every eccentricity Waited Allowed myself to be teased Waited And waited some more AND YOU FRIEND ME!!!!!!!???????? And I have to just stand there and take this? 'Cause it's not me, it's you? Of course it's you. I did everything you asked. We know it's not me. I wish it was me. I want it to be me. I want to be unreasonable. I want to call you names. I want to cry. I want you to feel one one millionth of the despair That I feel right now. And watch you just stand there and take it. I WANT TO BE UNREASONABLE!!!!! But I'm not that type of person. Even if. . . Today, I really want to be. August
Who I Am
Take your vitamins, Grow up to be big and strong. Grow up to be a man. The words of my youth echo back at me. But what sort of man will I be? I want to be a brave man, macho. With a black leather jacket and a slick motorcycle. Never afraid of anything, groupies following me wherever I go. Everyone will be impressed with me. I want to be a tough man, With scars on my body Trophies of past victories. Many battles fought and won, No defeats, no regrets. I want to be a strong man With muscles that ripple when I'm on the beach. The quick path to success. I want to be a smart man, Never making mistakes, Surrounded by people wanting my advice. I did not become a smart man, I have mountains of mistakes behind me. And many more ahead I'm sure I have become an experienced man. I did not become a strong man My muscles don't turn heads at the beach I often choose the longer path It seems as if I can go on forever I have become an endurance man. I did not
So Much To Say
You tell me that you love me, And I can't believe my joy. The other times I've heard that line, I've felt like a personal toy. You've let me see your heart of hearts, You've let me ease your pain. Now I think of us, and endless walks, And kisses in the rain. There's something I don't understand, Please explain it if you can. How can you love someone like me? I'm just like any man. My heart of hearts is an open book, That your eyes are free to read. You hold my humor, love and mind, And all the friendship that you need. I've never been much of a poet, The masses don't crave my lines. But I'm laying out my love for you, To keep here for all time. Life is a circle, I've heard it said. And I guess it must be true. Because every time we say good-bye, You know I'll come back to you. When this world has got you down, And you feel like no one cares, Just close your eyes and think of me, And you know I'll be there. Please forgive my random jumps, I've
How I long to tell you that I love you. How I long to see the sunlight on your face. I still have no idea where to find you. Are you hiding in some strange enchanted place? You come to me in dreams each night, When I rest my weary head. I think of you in the morning light, As I struggle out of bed. You are with me every moment, I don't even know your name. And although I've never seen you, I am sure we are the same. You must be searching for me too. It simply has to be. Someday our dreams will be fulfilled; I'll find you and you'll find me. But until that day, keep searching. Find your soulmate tried and true. When you ask me where I've been I'll say: "I've been searching the world for you." August
I want a kiss O.K. I'm going to come over and talk to you now, And you don't even know me yet, so just relax. Now don't start with those old killer phrases, like: You remind me so much of my brother, or, Aren't you gay? Come on now, play fair. Play hard to get, sure, but play. Don't turn me into some lunatic stalker as I approach your table. Don't look at me with disdain and say, "He only wants one thing." As if only one thing could hold my interest. At least let me get to your table, Let me compliment your hair, Drink in your eyes, Give me a chance to be charming. 'Cause I can be charming I can say things that you've never heard before, But will long to hear again. I'm at the table now, been here awhile We've sat at many tables together, Gone out a few times, Gotten to know each other a bit. But you've still got to play fair. Non-lethal ordinance only. You can't use the deadly weapons in your arsenal. "I'm so glad there's no sexual tension between us" "You
$till In Vega$
In that faraway $tate, The land of delusion, A calendar rumbles, Amidst the confusion. A one-wheeled juggler, Rolls out of the rubble, Better hark what I say, Or you know there'll be trouble. I live in the land, Of the great neon sign, It's really not bad, Er, well, most of the time. I would keep on going, In this slick way of mine, But the hour grows late, And I'm lost for a rhyme. So jugglers take heed, For one never knows, Who will sit down beside you, When you're watching the shows. I might crash up a game, While you're watching the ref. Or maybe I'll show, At the next P.J.F. August
I stand here all alone, My back against the wall. I'm waiting here for her to come to me. The both of them just stand there, On the opposite side of the room. The two of them against the one of me. She stands there in the middle, Looking like a star, But the middle isn't where she wants to be. I tell her she'll be happy, I promise her the moon. I only wish she would believe in me. But her friends are calling too. They're louder than I am. "Why take a chance on him?" they seem to say. It's a bloody tug of war. The two against the one. So much to lose, and yet much more to gain. She stands there in the middle, Wanting to go both ways. Should she go with me and be happy? Or with her friends and stay the same. August
Traci's Monologue
So he says to me; "Just be yourself." Well let me tell you, I'm an actor! I'm not supposed to be myself, I'm supposed to be somebody else. For seven hours every day, I work long and hard at being somebody else, and this bone-headed pimply-faced staged manager says: "The opening act is late, go out and stall the crowd, warm them up, tell a joke, just be yourself." Just be myself? Where's the fucking script!?! Sorry. . . I get carried away sometimes, well, a lot. Like this one time I was starring in La Boheme and I was just about to do my big aria, the one that goes (la la la) When, halfway across the stage, I saw a cockroach, now this wasn't one of your L.A. roaches, no sir. This was a New York City Roach. Although we were in Tennessee, but anyway during my aria, this giamongus cockroach is crawling across my stage, at me. Now just so's you know, I don't like cockroaches. My first impulse was to run, but Musetta, that's my character, Musetta, wears these ridiculous high heels. So I
Twelve-dollar Train Wreck

And ask me how I stand it But I'm really busy now With the circus And the play I'm the stage manager I don't have time for poetry And both of my fans are upset My friends just shake their heads. . . and sigh And wish I would straighten out I don't have to worry about the circus anymore Or the play, Or theater at all It's back to twelve bucks 'Till who knows when But I'm a salesman now And I hate it Bellevue is overrated And my friends just shake their heads. . . and sigh And make obscure comments, About train wrecks But I'm too busy Bingo is my game Well, my profession Little money, twelve bucks. . .

On Using A Toy
And it doesn't go away The thought behind my eyes The forbidden hunger I can't deny But don't want to admit To hold you in my mouth And see you looking down on me To be helpless before you Choking on you I hear your commands The excitement in your voice I'm trembling Your hands burn in my hair And you're behind me Bending me over Readying me for access For my final surrender And then gentle Slow Soft Wet Coos Strokes Praise And oh My God Please I Yes Um Oh Breathe Breathe And then hard Over and Over Griping Stroking Thrusting I'm just along for the ride A victim of the fury of your hips Your hot breath on my neck Your chest, soft against my back Your litany of authority in my ear And it slowly dawns on me I am yours August
Two A.m.
The clock has struck the hour two. I cannot sleep for thoughts of you. The way your eyes light up my life, Keeps me awake throughout the night. And as I long to hold you near, Your golden-throated voice I hear. You sing to me a song so sweet, I pray we once again will meet. The sun, the moon, the stars above, I'd give to you but for your love. All this that I would give to hear, Your whispered love upon my ear. A question haunts me day and night. Am I the one to grace your life? And do you lie awake at two? To think of me, as I, of you. August
Unanswered Questions
She asks, "Who are you?" As if it's a question. And not a demand for self justification. I choose the jacket that offers the most comfort. I am a poet. Who are you, really? And I want to say, No really, I'm a poet. "That's not who you really are." "Who are you?" As if it's a question. I know this game. The only correct answer, Is to ask her. But it doesn't work. She claims it must come from me. "Who are you?" As if it's a question. "I am a teacher." If I have to be put into a box, This one'll do. "That doesn't tell me who you are." "Who are you?" As if it's a question. This game goes on and on. Being a jack-of-all-trades has it's advantages. But she isn't satisfied, With any of my pat answers. "Who are you?" As if it's a question. Questions have answers. If this had an answer I'd know it by now. This isn't a question. It's a journey. In this case, The journey is the destination. "Who are you?" "I'm not telling." "But if you find out, let me know."
Value Your Props
Many people have seen me juggle three bowling pins. In fact, when I arrive at a festival I am always asked; "Did you bring the bowling pins, and if so, why?" This can best be answered with a story. The story begins in 1996. I was on my way to Las Vegas from Seattle. I stopped in Provo, Utah to visit a friend. We went bowling. On the shoe counter stood a single bowling pin and a sign which read; "USED BOWLING PINS! $1.50 EACH!" I read the sign aloud, thus attracting the saleslady's attention. Feeling mischievous I asked; "Ya got three of em?" And before I could explain that I was just kidding, she placed three bowling pins on the counter and said: "I'll tell you what. If you can juggle them, you can have them for free." The manner in which she said this led me to believe that she had had this conversation many times before. I felt my only option was to smile in mock surprise and say; "Really? I'll try." I arrived in Las Vegas with three, brand new, used
Man, don't talk to me about respect man. You don't know. You're an old man. You must be twenty at least! How old am I? I'm thirteen, but I've been around man. I know what life is. I know what's important. Yeah yeah, I know. You sound just like my stepfather. He thought he knew everything too. Me? No, I don't know everything. I just know more than you. How do I do in school? All right when I go. Yeah yeah, you're just like my stepfather. The last time I read a book? I don't remember. What difference does it make? The last book I read? Who cares? You prob'ly gots a whole room full'a books. I ain't no genius like you man. Yeah I can read. I just don't is all. What's that? Of Mice And Men? Sounds stupid. No, I don't want to read it. It's too thick. One hundred and eighteen pages!?! You must be out of your mind man. I ain't got time to be reading. I don't always have time to come home at night. Two weeks! You must be crazy man. I can't read that in two weeks! You don't understand. I'll be r
Walk With Me
Walk with me through a lifetime As down life's road we go I'll be with you in the sunshine As well as the rain and snow Don't walk in front of me For I may not follow Don't walk behind me For I may not lead Just walk beside me And be my friend Let me walk with you Down that winding road The poets all call life I'll hold your hand And sing you songs And comfort you in strife I won't walk in front of you For you may not follow I won't walk behind you For you may not lead I'll just walk beside you And be your friend So take my hand And let's move on To places yet unknown With you to keep me company I'll never be alone Lonely is a horrid word You'll never have to fear For through life's valleys, Hills and dips I'll always be quite near August
I meander to the beat of a different drum. I sing out, and I sing out loud. My philosophy is "Do whatever you like." "Just so long as it draws you a crowd." I amuse all my friends, with my stories and songs, And maybe a poem or two. They listen and say; "You should live out these tales." I wink and say "Maybe I do." "Why you'd be amazed at the ships I have sailed, At the perils through which I have steered." Although never amazed, my friends always smile, And say; "August, you're certainly weird." August
What Cost, Love?
You wanted a "Real" little brother. And I'm reminded of Pinocchio Who only wanted to be a "real" little boy. But at the tender age of four I used every ounce of courage To say no to your dress up games And you've yet to forgive me for it. The road to manhood is forked with decisions. At four, that one cost me your love. You wanted a genius son One that knew all the answers Instead of asking so many questions You wanted a pet You'd have settled for anything But a boy in his father's footsteps A decision I have to remake every day My identity at the cost of your love And now you come at me in quick succession With expectations I cannot fulfill The Rebel The Good Husband The Zealot The Stud At each juncture I had to make my choice I choose to say no Set my limits Be me Awash in disappointment Forgiveness and/or love Trickling down in varying amounts And I feel like scuba gear Giving O2 'till I'm empty Begging to be refilled Instead of thrown away In
What Ifs
But what if I don't like it? And I rage. And what if I don't approve? And I rage. And what if I. . . Succeed! Have a great time! Learn! I begin my rant I could flip a coin if you like. And I rage For every what if you give me, I could give you three back. If you don't find out, You'll never know And I rage. Because the real question. . . Is the one she won't ask. But what if it hurts? Well, then it's important. August
What It's All About
But it's all about words man It's all about words Some words are better than others Some words have class Some words are so elite That they're downright snobbish Like antidisestablishmentarianism Other words are funny Like bunny, not rabbit, bunny Or frog, frog is funny Deer is not You have never heard a joke that starts. . . "O.K. A deer walks into a bar." It just doesn't happen Although, Bambi is funny Other words produce images, Set fire to the imagination, Leave you encrusted in muck, Find you soaring in ecstasy It's all about words man, It's all about words.

What Little Boys Like
Little boys like outhouses I'm not sure I can explain it, but it's true. There's something about pissing down a hole too deep to see. Something almost dangerous. Like pissing off a bridge, It's amazing. Little boys like trees Because the possibilities are endless. Trees are towers to climb, Fortresses of steel, Trees are homes for mythical creatures. Trees are adventures waiting to be adventured. Little boys like rocks, any rocks. Rocks to be thrown, Rocks to jump off of, Rocks that hide ants, and spiders. Rocks that are caves to explore, Caves that may have bats. Little boys like bridges Even though you're not supposed to piss off of them. Heights are amazing To stand still and fly at the same time. How did the builder get across in order to build in the first place? Little boys like the smell of aftershave. Because it reeks of manhood. Of the future Of what they may become. I have no idea what little girls like. But little boys like these things.
"why Don't You Dance?"
"Because it's all about movement." And I shudder C'mon, move." And this is the hardest thing I've ever done. "Let the music control your movement." Control my movement!?! "Don't Move!" And this is the hardest thing I've ever done. As this damn creature contemplates my hand, Carefully deciding whether or not I'm a flower. "It's time to move." And this is the hardest thing I've ever done. Don't sway, step sure. Anyone can learn to march. . . really. Get your fucking head down! Move!" And this is the hardest thing I've ever done. Because this time, it's my voice. It's my job. Bullets flying, truck pitching, Shove them to the floor, Keep these soldier/boys safe. "I love the way you move." And this is the hardest thing I've ever done. Because it's my voice again, And it doesn't falter as she cries, And curses the day we met. Throat raw, head heavy, I'm out the door for the last time. Every experience, Every decision, Every triumph, Is movement to me.

Beleive It Or Not
If you can beleive it or not the system actually works for you sometimes. about 6 weeks ago my neiborhood incurred a rash of break ins. on one specific night 7 cars where hit, including mine. along with stereos and money from other peoples cars they stole my 80gig ipod. i hesitated, thinking that it would not do me any good, to go down and report it to the police department (which happens to be one block from my house). but after searching my house for a day and a half, to make sure that i did not misplace the ipod, i finally reported it. the officer took the report and told me that that is all he could do for me. after hearing this i decided to let it go. two days later i spent another $300.00 to buy myself another ipod, this time only 30gb's. i was set, but i still wanted my 80gb back, so i told my nephews to put the word out to all of their little friends and let them know who the ipod belonged to(we live in a small town and i know just about everybody). all of this was done to no a

Bored In My Cubicle
sometimes at work, nothing is going on, so my mind and hands start to wander. I was sitting at my desk, looking at this girl in front of me, long red hair, cute smile and gorgeous breasts. Her name is Denice. Denice likes to wear clothes that exentuate her form, short, tight skirts, and very low cut tops and often, nothing underneath. one afternoon, not much was happening in the queue, i found my self imagining what denice tastes like. i felt my pants get tight and my mouth began to water. i slid my hand over my pants and started squeezing myself, staring at her seemingly effortless beauty. I knew this would not be enough, i looked around to make sure no one could see, when i was certain, I undid my zipper, and slid my hand inside. i started stroking my now extremely had cock inside my pants, unable to get a good rythym going, i pulled it out. i got a little limp from the uncertainty, but i then refocussed my attention on Denice, that helped alot. I was rubbing a
I Havent Laughed This Hard In Soooooo Long
Stun gun ....... ONLY A GUY WOULD DO THIS. Pocket Taser Stun Gun, a great gift for the wife. This was submitted by a guy who purchased his lovely wife a 'pocket Taser' for their anniversary. Last weekend I saw something at Larry's Pistol & Pawn Shop that sparked my interest. The occasion was our 22nd anniversary and I was looking for a little something extra for my wife Cindy. What I came across was a 100,000-volt, pocket/purse-sized taser. The effects of the taser were suppose to be short lived, with no long-term adverse affect on your assailant, allowing her adequate time to retreat to safety.... WAY TOO COOL! Long story short, I bought the device and brought it home. I loaded two triple-a batteries in the darn thing and pushed the button. Nothing! I was disappointed. I learned, however, that if I pushed the button AND pressed it against a metal surface at the same time; I'd get the blue arch of electricity darting back and forth between the prongs. Awesome!!! Unfortunately,

Some Character Traits Of Paul, The Apostle
Some Character Traits of Paul, the Apostle October 2, 2007 by Wayne Jackson Paul, the apostle of Christ, was one of the most influential men of earth’s history. Reflect upon this remarkable man with us in this brief study. The renowned German scholar, Adolf Deissmann, once declared: “There is no single person since Nero’s days who has left such permanent marks on the souls of men as Paul the New Man.” He noted that the grand apostle of Christ, “rising from the mass of the insignificant many” is “still molding the world at the present moment” (1957, viii). F.F. Bruce stated that he had spent more time studying the works of Paul than any other writer of antiquity. He further commented that Paul’s epistles are more “richly rewarding” than that of any other writer—either ancient or modern (1977, 15). He observed as well that “no single event, apart from the Christ-event itself, has proved so determinant for the course of Christian history as the conversion and commissioning of Pa
Smokers Rights?
So, I work at a camera store in the mall in the evenings now. Earlier, I was outside having a smoke, and this little brat and her father walked up. The ashtray is next to the entrance to the mall, and I was doing what the law requires me to do. This little brat says "Daddy, what does that sign say?" Daddy says "it says no smoking, but it means inside." Brat then says "Well, I don't like it. The police should arrest him." I quickly pulled my nametag off, and stuck it in my pocket, and replied "Yes, and right now, I'm doing nothing wrong. When I was a kid if I had mouthed off to an adult like that, I would have been back handed across my face." The dad just glared at me, and walked into the mall. Oh, I wanted him to say something back to me. I'm so friggin sick of these holier than thou types who think that just because they don't like something, its automatically wrong, and that they should try to humiliate the person as a consequence. You know what, you little brat? I don't like

Disaplining Your Kids
I was watching the news the other day, when i heard about a father in Florida that spanked his son with a belt. After his son went to school the next day, the boy couldn't sit in his seat the right way. Well the sons teacher had the pirncaple check the boy, and they found a couple of welts on the boys butt. So the school called the police about it. the next thing the father is sitting in jail for spanking his son. When the father went to court for spanking his son, the judge couldn't believe the charges, well the judge droped the charges, saying at least the father didn't hit his son with the buckle or a baseball bat. All I know it is a shame that now a days you cann't spank your kids for doing worng, and if you do ethier your kids threten you with calling the cops thenself, or its someone else calling child services on you. especially the school systems yelling child abuse. What every happened to spanking your kids, I remember growing i got my butt busted atleast once or twice a month

It is like a mind-controlling disease. It makes you feel worthless and unknown. It has no mercy, whispering in your ear that life has no meaning. It tells you no one cares and why go on. It makes you feel like you have no purpose. You want to run and hide but you know it is close behind following you no matter how hard you try to escape. It tells you lies and says nasty things to you. It makes you feel empty inside. It takes a part of you away so you feel incomplete. This so called disease is called depression.

Being on Fubar, I see that a lot of members have tattoos. Now some of the artwork done is pretty good. Some honor 9-11 or POWs, and some are dedicated to the wearer's family. That is all cool. But my question is: How do they withstand all the pain of the needles? I would just die. And I can see having one, but why get so many? Does having more than one slowly poisons your skin? My wife wants one. I just couldn't do it. Maybe I am just too much of a scaredy cat.

Bubba's New Truck
Bubba's New truck...... One day, Jimmy Joe was walking down Main Street when he saw his buddy Bubba driving a brand new pickup. Bubba pulled up to him with a wide grin. "Bubba, where'd you get that truck?!?" "Bobby Sue gave it to me" Bubba replied. "She gave it to you? I knew she was kinda sweet on ya, but a new truck?" "Well, Jimmy Joe, let me tell you what happened. "We were driving out on County Road 6, in the middle of nowhere. Bobby Sue pulled off the road, put the truck in 4-wheel drive, and headed into the woods. She parked the truck, got out, threw off all her clothes and said 'Bubba, take whatever you want'. 'So I took the truck!" "Bubba, you're a smart man!. Them clothes woulda never fit you".

Final Moments
Today I went to my call center job for the last time. I turned in my headset, filled out a form explaining why I was leaving and did a post-employment interview with the heads of HR and my department. I told the heads of HR and my department that I was tired of other breaking the rules and not getting punished. I needed new challenges that they could not provide me, and that I felt I wasn't being listened to when I volunteered for further training and other shifts. Tomorrow I am off to get my sales job.

The Meaning Of Friendship
The Meaning OF Friendship LOVE starts with a SMILE, grows with a KISS, and ends with a TEAR. DON'T cry over anyone who won't cry over you. Good FRIENDS are hard to find, harder to leave, and impossible to forget. You can only go as far as you push. ACTIONS speak louder than words. The HARDEST thing to do is watch the one you love, love somebody else. DON'T let the past hold you back, you're missing the good stuff. LIFE'S SHORT. If you don't look around once in a while you might miss it. A BEST FRIEND is like a four leaf clover, HARD TO FIND and LUCKY TO HAVE. Some people make the world SPECIAL just by being in it.
i don't really look at comment's .so if i do not responed to your comment you know why.peace

Fantasy Football - It's Just Like Porn But With Sports
This is my first season of trying a fantasy football league, primarily because I was invited by some of the other managers in the office. Now I'm not really a football fan, not a serious one anyway. I have to admit I do have a favorite team - the Saints (and yes, I know they're stinking up the place this year.) But beyond that, I don't really follow it. But considering I moved over to a new group at work, I thought it would be a good bonding experience. Yeaaaaaaah. Bonding. I'm pretty obsessive about checking work email at home, which is a bad habit I admit. But you have no idea how obsessive you get trying to follow eight consecutive football games at once, or try to get the stats on the current available players, or the predictions. Jesus, I don't surf porn for this much fervor. I follow stats I have no idea what they mean. I just know that if the numbers are higher than other guys, it's a good thing. Percentage of ownership, that's also helpful if you know nothing about footb
Politics And Shit
Enough! Current mood: angry Category: News and Politics Up until a couple of weeks ago I kept my political views pretty quiet. Granted, everyone that I interacted with knew that I was very liberal in my political beliefs. I believe in a egalitarian society. I believe that everybody within that society is entitled to the basics of healthcare, housing and justice. Without this becoming an "I believe" re-write, I also believe that people have the right to free speech. The idea of free speech is a strange one. It is defended as an inalienable right in the United States and is sometimes used by radicals to allow them to spout various hate-filled rants. In Europe the right to free speech is less clearly defined but in reality there is probably a greater level of free speech in Europe than in the United States. (certainly in the western European countries). The point of all this and the point of the blog relates to a an article I replied to on an unnamed website in response to a parti
Book Review: Wicked: The Life And Times Of The Wicked Witch Of The West (1995)
I am both a fan of the film The Wizard of Oz (1939) and the Broadway hit Wicked, so I have been looking forward to reading this book for sometime. While I expected to learn new things about WWW, Dorothy or Glinda (The Good With of the North), I was surprised to find such an adult oriented fairy tale in this prequel. Plot: Elphaba is a quiet, misunderstood girl who overcomes her disability of being born with green skin to become an eco-terrorist and reluctant witch that will known mistakenly as The Wicked Witch of the West. Likes: 1. New Details about the WWW-We learn that Elphie has no interest or talent in magic, but she actually is a trained naturalist.; Glinda (actually named Galinda) studies magic but is pretty bad at it, and she never considers her a witch by trade.; Dorothy never wanted to kill Elphie, but wanted to help her stop the Wizard from enslaving Oz's sentient animals. And there are many others. 2. We get to see the points of view of various Oz characters, an
Book Review: 007 James Bond: A Report (1965)
For all you James Bond fans, O.F. Snelling writes a short reference guide about the early adventures of UK's most famous Secret Service agent. The book discusses Bond by exploring his image, women and enemies. It also explores Ian Fleming's inspiration of the Bond character, and what future adventures may occur for 007. Also there is lite criticism of the early novels and films. I like this book because it explores the James Bond saga as pieces of adventure literature with each novel being its own part of the overall story. Now I do warn you that this maybe a hard book to find. I got mine at an used book store. But if you find it, and check it out.
Book Review: Angels & Demons (2000)
It is believed that science and religion are opposite sides of the same coin. But what if they are just two different ways of seeing and experiencing God? This idea is explored in Dan Brown's novel featuring Dr. Robert Langdon. Plot: Dr. Langdon races against time to save the Vatican and the Roman Catholic Church from the power of creation it self. Likes: Brown combines art history, the history of Catholic law and tradition and modern physics into a fast-paced storyline. There is drama, a little humor, horror and spirituality in how good fights evil. There is at least two good twists at the end. Dislikes: Brown doesn't develop his main character much. He is a bit wordy at times, and assumes that the reader is not knowledgable about culture. Sequel: The De Vinci Code (2003) Out of four stars, I give it three stars. A good storyline with a combination of science and religion, but could have had Langdon's character better developed.
Book Review: Battle Ready (2004)
The job of the US Military is to "kill people and break things" for 95% of the time; but for the other 5%, it has to do "Operations Other Than War" (OOTW). Battle Ready is the part-biography, part-autobiography and part-history of the "Warrior Peacemaker" Gen. Anthony (Tony) Zinni, USMC-Retired. The book is written by Zinni, Tom Clancy and Tony Koltz. Plot: The book follows the career of Gen. Zinni through his two tours in Vietnam, emergency relief and security operations in the Philippines, Operation Provide Comfort in Turkey and northern Iraq, Operation Provide Hope in the former Soviet Union, Operations Restore Hope, Continue Hope, and United Shield in Somalia, Operations Resolute Response and Noble Response in. Kenya, Operations Desert Thunder, Desert Fox, Desert Viper, Desert Spring, Southern Watch and the Maritime Intercept Operations in the Persian Gulf, and Operation Infinite Reach against terrorist targets in the Central Region. Not mention he was involved in the plannin
Book Review: The Italian Secretary (2005)
Caleb Carr tackles the adventures of Sherlock Holmes (a consulting detective) and Dr. John Watson (a retired British Army medical doctor) in a new story of mystery. Plot: Holmes and Watson are asked by Mycroft Holmes (Sherlock's older brother) to investigate two mysterious deaths at a Scottish castle that could be a sign of a larger threat to Queen Victoria. Likes: Much is detailed about the relationship between the Holmes brothers.; The mystery unravels slowly so to not give anything away until that last 3 chapters or so. Dislikes: Carr sacrifies his style of writing to imitate the writing style of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Carr is great at using psychology and forensics to give a gritty storyline, but he doesn't do it this time. Instead, he resorts to almost a "Scooby-Doo" style of telling how Holmes and Watson solve the case. Out of 4 stars, I give it 2 1/2 stars. A good try at the Sherlock Holmes storytelling style, but it lacks Carr's unique touches to make it a better t
Book Review: The De Vinci Code (2003)
Soon to be released as a movie later this month, Dan Brown writes a good book that makes a lot of history and lore very interesting to read about. Plot: A symbologist and a cryptologist join forces to uncover the greatest treasure and cover-up in world history. Likes: The book teaches the reader about religion, art history, code breaking and European history as the adventure unfolds.; Almost 500 pages, the 105 short chapters tell the overall storyline at a quick pace.; Brown uses flashbacks to tell the background stories on the major characters.; There are many twists and turns that keep the story interesting. Dislikes: The book's ending seems to be rushed a bit. It starts making thing confusing. Prequel: "Angels & Demons" (2000) Out of 4 stars, I give it 3 1/2 stars. Overall a good book that could have used a less rushed end.
Book Review: "harry Potter And The Sorcerer's Stone" (1997)
The first of the seven part saga about the life and times of a young wizard-in-training. Plot: Harry discovers he is a wizard, and so he goes off to Hogwarts to begin his training. Likes: JK Rowling takes time to describe every character, place and situation.; The magic was wizarding world is revealed in a way that makes he believe you are there. Dislikes: The overall story set-up takes some time to get through. Out of 4 stars, I give it 3 1/2 stars. A great start to the series of books.
Book Review: "harry Potter And The Chamber Of Secrets" (1999)
This is the second of seven books about the training of a young wizard. Plot: Harry returns to more studies and adventure as he tries to keep Hogwarts from closing. Likes: It introduces some new characters; It explains some of the history of Hogwarts. Dislikes: Not really an exciting storyline.; Lacks the detail of the first book. Out of 4 stars, I give it 2 1/2 stars. Nice new characters, but not a great sequel.
Book Review: "harry Potter And The Prisoner Of Azkaban" (1999)
This the third book in the set of seven tales about a young wizard. Plot: Harry Potter is out to revenge the deaths of his parents as he completes his third year at Hogwarts. Likes: The story deepens as Harry learns about his past.; We begin to see how powerful a wizard Harry is becoming. Dislikes: None Out of 4 stars, I give it 4 stars. It is a great book.
Book Review: " Harry Potter And The Goblet Of Fire" (2000)
This is the forth of seven books about a growing wizard-in-training. Plot: Harry Potter is somehow gotten himself into the Tri-Wizard Games. Likes: We see more about the early wars between Lord Voldemont and the Ministry of Magic.; We see all the characters grow into young adults. Dislikes: A very long book that really has two story lines. Out of 4 stars, I give it 3 1/2 stars. A good read even though it is long.
Book Review: "harry Potter And The Order Of The Pheonix" (2003)
This is the fifth book of seven about the continuing adventures of a young wizard. Plot: Harry Potter and and Hogwarts are under attack by the Ministry of Magic. Likes: It shows that not everything goes right for Harry.; Introduces more characters needed for the last two books. Dislikes: Another long book to read that seems to go on forever at times. Out of 4 stars, I give it 3 stars. Good plot twists, but too long.
Book Review: "harry Potter And The Half-blood Prince" (2005)
This is the sixth of seven books about a young wizard learning his trade. Plot: Harry begins his advanced classes as he prepares to battle his enemies. Likes: A fast read since the action and storyline is at a quicker pace.; We see Harry come into his element as a wizard. Dislikes: Makes you really want to read the seventh book. And then you feel bad because it isn't out yet. Out of 4 stars, I give it 3 1/2 stars. A good read that makes you beg for more.
Just saying hello to everyone.
Book Review: Harry Potter And The Deadly Hallows (2007)
This is the seventh and final book in the series about a young wizard in training. Plot: Harry ditches his last year of wizard's school to finish the war with his mortal enemy. Likes: All the lose ends of the previous books are tied up neatly.; We get a peak into the lives of Harry, Ron and Hermione as adults.; While many key minor characters are killed off, a few ours rise up to the challenge of leadership and bravery.; There seems to be an open-ended ending in which future novels could be about either the threesome as adults or their kids. Dislikes: There are times when the book tends to drag some.; The final undoing of some villains seemed to fall flat.; There should have been more storyline being taken place at Hogwarts. Out of 4 stars, I give it three stars. A good way to end the series but it could have been more Hogwarts oriented.
Book Review: Star Wars-episode I: The Phantom Menace (1999)
This is the first installment of the six-part saga that details the rise and fall of the Empire and Jedi Order. A book I have been wanting to read for some time. Plot: While two Jedi knight try to help a young queen save her planet, they come across a little boy who is destined for greatness. Likes: There a lot of little scenes here that never made it to the film that better explain the backgrounds of the Sith and Anakin Skywalker's life on Tatooine.; The author, Terry Brooks, captures the excitement of the various battle scenes that occur towards the end of the novel.; We learn that Anakin fore sees much of his future with Padme, and understands that he will be her husband. Dislikes: Little is said about the pasts of Jedi Master Qui-Gon Jinn and his Jedi Apprentice Obi-Wan Kenobi. Out of four stars, I give this book three stars. The small scenes add dimension to the overall storyline, but more could have been said about the two main Jedi characters.
Book Review: Star Wars-episode Ii: Attack Of The Clones (2002)
Plot: Anakin Skywalker finds love as he protects the young senator Padme. Likes: Tells to the slow but progressive romance between Anakin and Padme.; Begins to show the Clone wars, the wars mentioned vaguely in Episode IV.; Introduces the new characters of Boba Fett and Dark Jedi Count Dooku. Dislikes: Actions scenes are poorly written.; The story is told at such a slow pace that it gets boring in parts. Out of 4 stars: 2 Stars. A true Star Wars fan will like it if he/she doesn't find it too boring.
Book Review: Star Wars-jedi Trial (2004)
In Jedi Trial, one of the campaigns of the Clone Wars is expanded upon. Plot: Anakin Skywalker tries to earn his full Jedi knighthood by assisting a discredited Jedi Master in winning a key battle. Likes: We see the universe of Star Wars expand to introduce some new characters that make the story an interesting read.; There is more of a military feel to the novel that gives more creditability to the storyline.; The storyline moves at a good pace that keeps the reader involved. Dislikes: Very little involvement of the other key characters that are usually in the Prequel stories. I.e. Yoda, Obi-Won, the Emperor. Out of 4 stars, I give it 2 1/2 stars. A good read, but could have used more Obi-Won in it.
Book Review: Star Wars-episode Iii: Revenge Of The Sith (2005)
This the novel of the last part of George Lucus's six-part space opera that spans the adventures of two generations. Plot: Anakin Skywalker is tempted by the Dark Side of the Force as he tries to find a way to save the life is his wife, Padme. Obi-Won Kenobi fights to end the Clone Wars. Likes: The book tells the story from the different points of view from the various main characters.; The action and battle scenes are well described.; The story has a good steady pace. Dislikes: Has very little background story on the character of Gen. Greivous.; Has little information on how Anakin is physically transformed into Darth Vader. Out of 4 stars, I give it 3 stars. I good read, but could have been more detailed in parts.
Book Review: Star Wars: Dark Lord-the Rise Of Darth Vader (2006)
James Luceno pretty much writes a book that could be also known as Star Wars-Episode 3.2. It answers a lot of questions about Lord Of The Sith Darth Vader that his fans have been wanted answered for years. Plot: Anakin Skywalker, former Jedi Knight, begins his new life as the Lord Of The Sith Darth Vader. He adjusts to his new life as he begins hunting down the last of the Jedi Knights. Likes: (Where do I begin?) We learn how badly wounded Anakin/Darth really is, and what he goes through as he lives in his survival suit. We learn the true relationship between Anakin/Darth and Emperor Palpatine/Lord Sidious. We learn how Vader and Moff Tarkin become friends and begin there working relationship. Interesting Passage: There is a passage in the book in which Anakin/Darth is complaining about his suit to Palpatine. He basically bitches for several minutes until Palpatine reminds him that he is lucky to be alive at all. It shows that Anakin/Darth wasn't always groveling to his master

My Tero Card
You are Strength Courage, strength, fortitude. Power not arrested in the act of judgement, but passing on to further action, sometimes obstinacy. This is a card of courage and energy. It represents both the Lion's hot, roaring energy, and the Maiden's steadfast will. The innocent Maiden is unafraid, undaunted, and indomitable. In some cards she opens the lion's mouth, in others she shuts it. Either way, she proves that inner strength is more powerful than raw physical strength. That forces can be controlled and used to score a victory is very close to the message of the Chariot, which might be why, in some decks, it is Justice that is card 8 instead of Strength. With strength you can control not only the situation, but yourself. It is a card about anger and impulse management, about creative answers, leadership and maintaining one's personal honor. It can also stand for a steadfast friend.

A guy walks into the local welfare office for his monthly check. He marches straight up to the counter and says, "Hi. You know, I just HATE coming in here drawing welfare month after month. I'd really much rather have a job." The worker behind the counter says, "Your timing is excellent. We've just obtained a job opening from a very wealthy old man who needs a combination chauffeur-bodyguard to drive his nymphomaniac daughter. You'll be required to drive his Mercedes; he'll supply all of the necessary clothes. Because of the long hours, all your meals will be provided. In addition, you will be expected to escort her on her overseas holiday trips. A two-bedroom apartment above the garage comes with the position. The starting salary is $200,000 a year."

Ask The Question
ASK THE QUESTION!! by Bob Brunk A wife of a church member was coming to church regularly. One day she asked me, as the preacher there, if I would come to her home to talk to her about "joining our church." She told me that she had been immersed in a local lake years ago by an Assembly of God minister, so I knew her method of baptism was correct — immersion. Then I asked an absolutely essential follow-up question, "What happened when you were immersed, what was your baptism for?" I told her that as I understood it the Assembly of God was "faith only" in regard to the plan of salvation (removing baptism as an essential part of the whole plan and when you actually received Christ and salvation).That group normally uses the manufactured "sinner's prayer", and at that point you were saved. Baptism was something you did after you were saved for various reasons. The lady told me that she believed that when she was baptized she had received Christ and salvation at that point. She poi

What I Feel Sometimes
This television has a poison on it's breath. This counter culture of both wicked lies and death. It makes my eyes bleed everytime I turn around. How will they all feel when I bring them to the ground? And I say.] I walk for miles inside this pit of danger. A place where no one follows me, I walk alone. I'm sick of all these people talkin' out their heads. I've never understood a damn thing that they said. From words to actions never knowing what they're about. I guess I'll have to chew them up and spit them out. And I'll say! I walked for miles inside this pit of danger. I've swallowed down a thousand years of anger. The weight of the world is falling on my shoulders. A place where no one follows me I walk alone I walk alone. Yeah. I walked for miles inside this pit of danger. I've swallowed down a thousand years of anger. The weight of the world is falling on my shoulders. A place where no one follows me I walk alone. I walk alone.
Thoughts Of Life
These sad days they pass us by. Watching every moment with that evil eye. Unable to tell us exactly whats right. Hoping everyday that they might, Be that last and final push. Toss away your thoughts For they mean nothing to you now. But in this end, it'll never work out. Try to see things even that you can see. To this day its nothing, but your reality. Die another day, live another life. Hate what you have done, And battle through your strife. Unfortunate we are to live through pain. Guiding us all, will we truely ever gain? Live for nothing, but die for all. Fight for everything, always just to fall. In this life we never really achieve. Just to try because its all we believe. I lay back and wait for the end. To have my story close, never to begin. This final moment, this final day. I cease to exsist..... in any form or any way....
Private Photos
You're staying late at your sister's photography studio. You promised you'd help her out and do her last appointment for the night because something had come up and the client wasn't able to reschedule. You're lounging on the sofa in the entryway when a beautiful woman walks into the store carrying a duffel bag. She looked around the room then she saw you sitting there, "Ummm, excuse me, I have an appointment. Is Paula here?" "Ummm, no she had something come up but I'm here to fill in for her." "Ummm, okay. Are you sure this isn't going to make you uncomfortable, the pictures aren't exactly normal ones?" "What do you mean?" "Ummmmm they're boudoir photos, as in me posing in lingerie." "Oh, for you're boyfriend?" you ask, trying to hide your disappointment. The thought of just getting to see her in her sexy lingerie makes your jeans go tight as your cock starts to thicken and pulse. "No, they're just for me. I want to be a model but they say I need different types of

Would You Stay?
A nurse took the tired, anxious serviceman to the bedside. "Your son is here," she said to the old man. She had to repeat the words several times before the patient's eyes opened. Heavily sedated because of the pain of his heart attack, he dimly saw the young uniformed Marine standing outside the oxygen tent. He reached out his hand. The Marine wrapped his toughened fingers around the old man's limp ones, squeezing a message of love and encouragement. The nurse brought a chair so that the Marine could sit beside the bed. All through the night the young Marine sat there in the poorly lighted ward, holding the old man's hand and offering him words of love and strength. Occasionally, the nurse suggested that the Marine move away and rest awhile. He refused. Whenever the nurse came into the ward, the Marine was oblivious of her and of the night noises of the hospital - the clanking of the oxygen tank, the laughter of the night staff members exchanging greetings, the cries

All Time Stupid Excuses
I think I must have hit my head harder than I thought. -_-; Ended up calling in to work today to let my boss know that I couldn't make it in to my shift... My reason? I fell out of bed. What possessed me to tell the truth? I can only claim stupidy...and that I must've hit my head harder than I thought. was the truth. Embarrassing, but true. And I'm thinking maybe I should've just said I was sick upon further reflection. Oops. I'll have to explain better on Monday when I go in. But at the moment, I'm glad I didn't try to go in 'cause I'm feeling rather out of sorts. Kinda dizzy and sick to my probably hit my head harder than I first thought, though at the time it didn't hurt nearly as much as the rest of me that got wedged between the bed and the wall. But considering I hit my head on the night stand as I went down (smacked it on all three shelves in the process), I think I might be forgiven for sounding odder than usual. -_
Book Review: "origins Of The Crash: The Great Bubble And Its Undoing" (2004)
One of my little hobbies is reading and studying US economic history. So when I found Roger Lowenstein's book at my local dollar store, I knew I found something worth adding to academic book collection. Plot: RL examines the rise and fall of the .com industry, Enron, WorldCom and other firms that used quasi-illegal accounting and stock trading tricks to boost their stock prices. Likes: RL uses the context of modern US economic history (i.e 1900 to present) as a backdrop to show how abuses could, did and will again occur in the inflation of a firm's stock price.; He dishes out equal blame to both the Democrats and Republicans in ignoring and even sometimes aiding in these abuses.; He writes in a style that is easy to understand in that he uses non-business related examples to explain difficult economic concepts. Dislikes: While RL states how the financial press reported the rise and fall of these firm's abuses, he never directly blames them helping promote nor truly investigati
Coming Full Circle
At times when I am half asleep I tend to think pretty deeply about my life. This morning I realized that career wise I have come full circle. In that from Oct. 1997 to now, I have had about 2-3 jobs and found none of them were worth sticking to. I had jobs in the customer service, education and food service industries. In their own way, the jobs were fun and interesting. I just couldn't see myself making a career out of any of them. I think my biggest problem is get bored in a my job very easily. I like to learn new things on a constant basis. And few jobs offer that. Over the last 10 years, some things have changed. I now have more responsibilities with my family. I am more mature and better skilled at job hunting. And I have the power of the internet to find and apply for job leads. I just hope this job search will yield a fulfilling career choice.
Movie Review: All The King's Men (1949)
As a follower of American politics and political power, I like watching films that examine how the US political system can be used and abused. This film looks at how at times politics can be as messy as a mob war. Plot: A self-taught lawyer/farmer rises and falls in Southern politics. Likes: It expresses how power, ambition and the idea of bettering mankind can become corrupted by those who fight corruption.; There are no "good guys" that redeem themselves, but a group of very human and flawed who struggle to keep their heads above water.; It shows how at one time American politics was more like a mob war between candidates that would use violence and bribes to control others.; The acting is great with some good monologues. Dislikes: The ending is a bit disappointing because it ends abruptly when more could have been added to the storyline.; Not an original story since it is based on the real-life politician Gov. Huey "King Fish" Long (D-LA) who was in power in the late 1930s.
Movie Review The Queen (2006)
As a historian and history teacher, I am always a bit pensive when I watch a major film on a historical topic, person, event or general time period. Film makers have tendency to rewrite things to bit fit the pace or running time of their movie. This causes me to wonder how accurate are they being. Well this film didn't give those feelings. Plot: Queen Elizabeth II tries to steer the British royal family though the events surrounding the death and burial of Fmr. Princess Diana Spencer-Wales. And new UK Prime Minister tries to help her do it right. Likes: The storyline is really three subplots revolving around Diana's death. This shows us different levels of personality of all the characters.; The royal family is shown realistically. We see that they argue, love, disappoint and support each other as best they can within the social fabric of their class. Tony Blair is shown as a more reserved, family-oriented Bill Clinton who wants to find balance between his modern ideas and the tr
Movie Review: Bicentennial Man (1999)
The double Ph.D. and popular sci-fi writer Issac Asimov shares one of his best short stories to everyone in this film. Plot: A robot evolves from household tool to freed human being over 200 years in the near future. Likes: While mostly a drama, there are well placed comedy scenes that show why Robin Williams was cast as the robot.; It visualizes the saying "The More Things Change, The More They Stay The Same." It shows human technology advance but not human fear of the unknown. This makes the future look and feel more realistic. Dislikes: I read the short short in college, and found the film lacking many key legal scenes and full of storyline add-on that aren't in the original storyline.; I found the film a bit too long. I think a good 30-45 minutes could have been cut out without hurting the overall film. Rated PG for language and some sexual content. Kids Caution: I think this a film that most kids would find too boring to watch. Prequel/Sequel News: None Out of
Movie Review: How To Eat Fried Worms (2006)
While this sounds like a title for some crazy cooking show, this really a kids film that my kids like and got recently on dvd. Plot: During the first day of his new school year, a fifth grade boy squares off against a bully and winds up accepting a dare that could change the balance of power within the class. Likes: The movies shows funny situations in which young boys deal with school bullies, girls and saving face in front of one's peers.; It exposes the truth about bullies and their power (or lack of it) over others. Dislikes: Many gross scenes of eating worms in various ways. (My kids laughed, I almost puked.) Rated PG for mild bullying and some crude humor. Kids Caution: Nothing bad. Kids love it. Prequel/Sequel News: There is a made for tv version from back in 1985. Out of four stars, I give it three stars. I liked how humor was used to defuse stressful scenes, but the worm cooking/eating was sickening.
Movie Review: Casino Royale (2006)
Sometimes in the post-9/11 world, a killing machine is needed to keep the world save. And 007 is that killing machine. Plot: James Bond is given one of his first missions as a 00 agent. He must win a card game so to keep millions from falling into hands of terrorists. Likes: We see JB as a ruthless hired killer that has the instinct of a cop and endurance of a prizefighter.; We see him start his career, start wearing tuxs and drinking dry martinis.; More of a traditional spy film with lots of action and great stunts.; The card game is pretty exciting. Dislikes: After the card game, the film starts to lose focus. The writers try to expand the storyline by adding slow scenes and borrowing storyline aspects from other Bond films.; No Q and few gadgets. Rated PG-13 for intense sequences of violent action, a scene of torture, sexual content and nudity. (For Bond film, it was pretty clean in the sex department. And the only nudity is of JB himself.) Kids Caution: While I would
Movie Review: Rugrats In Paris-the Movie (2000)
Chucky, Tommy, Phil, Lil and company have won America's heart, but now can they conquer Europe? Plot: Fate and misadventure combine to help Chucky's dad to find a new wife while visting Paris, France. Likes: More like the tv show in which we see the relationships of both the kids and their parents.; There are new enemies and friends that keep the storyline going.; It pokes funny at Americans visiting France but not really Frenchmen themselves.; Some star-power is added with voices by Casey Kasem, Susan Sarandon and John Lithgow. Dislikes: A relatively new character, Susie Carmichael, is barely in the film with amounts to a cameo appearance. While her scene is funny, it adds little to the film. Rated G. Kids Caution: A great kids film that just right for adults too. Prequel/Sequel News: This film is the second of three films. It comes after The Rugrats Movie (1998) and is followed by Rugrats Go Wild (2003) Out of four stars, I give this film 3 1/2 stars. A very film
Movie Review: Beatles Diary (1996)
Minor adventures about a ready big band are told through the point of view of Alf Bicknell. Plot: A documentary about the minor adventures of The Beatles told by their driver/roadie. Likes: Tons of funny, positive stories about the rise and daily life of the 1960's super-group.; The background music is very of minor and big hits rarely heard anymore. Dislikes: At 59 minutes, it tends to feel like 590 minutes since Alf's storytelling style is a bit longwinded.; Not really a problem with the video, but I found it sad to learn that Liverpool has turned into a "Beatles" tourist trap and lost its natural look. Rated: Not Rated. While there is some drug references, nothing is shown. Kids Caution: Most kids would find it too boring to watch. Out of four stars, I give it three stars. Great memories, but a bit long.
Movie Review: Mrs. Brown (1997)
Even royalty is allowed to grieve. And then move on. Plot: Queen Victoria is deeply depressed after the death of her husband, disappearing from public. Her servant Brown, who adores her, through caress and admiration brings her back to life, but that relationship creates scandalous situation and is likely to lead to monarchy crisis. Likes: A great cast of British actors that Americans will recognize from other feature films and tv shows.; A great period piece that shows how life was really like for the royal court from the 1860's to late 1880's.; The film never crosses the line from where Brown's and the Queen's friendship becomes a love affair. But it shows how it could have. Dislikes: Slow at times.; It doesn't explain the politics of the times very well, so the secondary storyline of Parliament is confusing. Rated PG for a beating, language and brief nudity. Kids Caution: Probably most kids would find this film too boring and slow to watch. Prequel/Sequel News: Non
Movie Review: Stand By Me (1986)
In the 1980's, coming-of-age films were big. This film would spark the development like "Dirty Dancing" (1987) and the tv series "The Wonder Years". Plot: Four friends journey to find a body of a missing boy so to get a bit of glory. Along the way, they learn about life and each other. Likes: This feature four future stars that would go onto big roles in the later 1980's and 1990's.; There are a good variety of slow and fast-paced scenes that help define the characters and storyline.; A good example of Stephen King's early writings. Dislikes: It is supposed to be set in the 1960's, but the film gives it more of an "it could happen at anytime in any town" feeling.; It is a "chick flick" for young adults. Rated R for violence, language and gross scenes. Kids Caution: Most kids would find it boring so not really want to watch it. Prequel/Sequel News: None Out of four stars, I give this film three stars. A good pace for a "chick flick".
Movie Review: The Rugrats Movie (1998)
A very popular Nickelodeon tv show made its debut in feature film exploring the world of tiny kids. Plot: Tommy and friends adjust to his new baby brother, Dil, as they go on an adventure in the wilderness. Likes: Interesting adult and children characters that everyone can relate to.; A good transition film between the early shows and the newer shows.; Addresses real-world issues (i.e. change and responsibility) in a funny and non-threatening way. Dislikes: None Rated G. Kids Caution: While a great family film, it does have one scene involving monkeys "hurting" the babies that very young kids may find scary. Prequel/Sequel News: This film was followed up with Rugrats In Paris: The Movie (2000) and Rugrats Go Wild (2003) Out of four stars, I give it four stars. I love it.
Movie Review: The Black Dahlia (2006)
The US public's attention was captured by the brutal murder of Elizabeth Short, a young starlet looking for her big break in Hollywood. This film is a fictionalized solution to this real life unsolved crime. Plot: The case is seen through the eyes of two LAPD homicide cops and how it affected their lives. Likes: The film captures the golden age of Hollywood and late 1940's in which cops, the mob and movie stars ruled. Dislikes: The writers use sex scenes to fill dead storyline too much.; The murder case becomes lost in a subplot that slows down the film.; And when the main murder story is discussed, it is told so confusing that it is hard to determine who did what to whom and why.; I found the acting coming across as being too dramatic and unnatural. Rated R for strong violence, some grisly images, sexual content and language. Kids Caution: This is not a kids film for exactly why it is Rated R. Out of four stars, I give it two stars. Classic Hollywood is well done, bu

Pain And Sorrow
Pain and sorrow ..>..> ..> ..> Pain and sorrow thoughts of yesterday shown in tomorrows' pleasurable plots. Seeking the future through casting lots... Been through the school of hard knocks, watched friends rot away from smokin' ice rox. People hung them selves, even blown thier brians out on the corner of them blocks that I use too walk. Soakin up years of pain and sorrow from watching the earth getting raped our mother , the provider The main sustainer..

Infusioned By Light And Darkness...
Infusioned by light and darkness... ..> ..> This is not a memory intrapment of despare.. For some reason the Darkness which lyes within our deepest thought, and feelings... was placed there by the same very light in which we were created from.. The great Mother, this Earth.. feels every bit of our prescence and disperses' the energies in which we create.. with the intent of good for humanity. Yet our little sized brains cannot comprehend, comprehend the fact that we are from this Earth, and she is in essence the Goddess, and God fertilized her to spawn us from that very light, which people called the spark of existence. then they both created darkness as a tool for enlightenment. And yet we run from the very thing that would bring us closer to... our God, that will in return He will show us how to truelly love our Goddess.

It would be nice to get some flowers... maybe some candy too. I don't like chocolate. Vanilla is way better.
Quote Of The Day
"Do not be in a hurry; depend upon it, the right Man will come at last; you will in the course of the next two or three years, meet with somebody more generally unexceptional than anyone you have yet known, who will love you as warmly as ever He did, and who will so completely attach you, that you will feel you never really loved before." - Jane Austen -
This is the day i go for my biopsy...not too very excited but i want the pain to go away. I have never had a biopsy but i dont think itll be that bad....just another needle! wish me luck on not getting scared!
Tv Show Review: Family Guy's Star Wars Show
Plot: Peter tells his family of story of "Star Wars-Episode IV: A New Hope" when the power goes out in his home. Likes: The animation was great. Some scenes look like the actual footage from the 1977 release.; Even though the show condenses a 2 hour film into a 1 hour tv show, very few scenes from the film are left out.; The script is pretty much word-for-word from the film. Dislikes: Like the regular tv show, some jokes are funny but just as many fall flat. Out of four stars, I give it three stars. A good parody despite some of the poor jokes.
What She Said
I was talking to a friend of mine about an ex I have and she told me the most significant thing that I have ever been told. I have never heard any better advice in my life. She said Don't expect him to become what you want because if he is a real man he will become what you need instead Now think about that and see how incredible it was for her to say

I have worked all my life, and for the past 3 years, I was disabled. I could not go back to work. I had no money in the bank, and no retirement or 401 K plan. I worked 19 years as a truck driver. Yes I was good at what I did. In 19 years of driving tractor trailer I got into 2 accidents that did not involve any other vehicles. And in the last 4 years I ran off the road and no one was hurt or involved except me on the last one. Both times I had passed out behind the wheel while driving. Talk about something that made me think? The first time was in 2001, I was driving thru Nebraska on I-80 near Sidney. It started with coughing and it was fast and I could not stop. The coughing that is. Well I didn't get any signs that I was in trouble, so I kept on driving. I remember passing an overpass. The next thing I remember was my hands were on the steering wheel, and I was driving in the grass. Yes I was still moving. I looking up on to the interstate and it seemed about 500 feet away.

OK so this morning I posted a rather medium to large mum stating different things that would be remembered if someone was born in the 1990s. It was an extremely funny and true thing. However, in the true spirit of meanness, it was removed stating it was not suitable for display. Now please keep in mind there have been far, I'm not sure how that mum could of been NSFW when other people post much more lued and innappropriate things on this website. Am I being singled out or can people just not take a freaking joke?!
Apparently They Don't Understand This "flu Shot" Business.
The company sponsored a "Flu Shot" afternoon, where we could all get flu shots for $25 or something if we so choose. I of course got one, because although it's a crap shoot that the antibodies used will be effective(It's only 3 of the main 5 strains), those are pretty good odds. I've blown a lot more money on less. You would think others would do this. But these are actual comments from my co-workers why they didn't. "Not for me but thanks for asking." Not...for me. Apparently it's a lifestyle choice I was unaware of, not being filled with snot. "No I'll be fine this winter." Sure. But if you get sick and come into the office, we beat you with sticks. "Umm..i think im good." You're good? How are you "good"? Do people only get car insurance when they're driving good? "I'm not sure it's a good idea with preggie @ home!" Don't even get that one. I would *think*... you'd want to avoid sickness with a newborn at home. I don't get people. And before you say it,
Book Review: "puppetmaster: The Secret Life Of J. Edgar Hoover" (2004)
Author: Richard Hack Plot: An in-depth examination of John Edgar Hoover from childhood to death. In between, we see how he combined his gift of intelligence, love of organization and need to be in control into the tools he would use to make him the most powerful law enforcement official of the 20th century. Likes: JEH is shown in all his glory and evil. As you read, there are times you are impressed by him, and times you might dislike him.; The author never really judges JEH himself but gives enough well researched information that helps the reader to decide JEH's place in US history. Dislikes: While the subject matter is interesting, the writing style (which is like reading a college term paper) doesn't exactly make the book a page-turner. Five Facts: 1. JEH went from high school straight to earning a Masters In Law degree from George Washington University night law school. 2. JEH joined the US Dept. Of Justice at a time when it was very corrupt with political appoin

Total Eclypse Of The Heart
Turnaround, every now and then I get a little bit lonely and you're never coming around Turnaround, Every now and then I get a little bit tired of listening to the sound of my tears Turnaround, Every now and then I get a little bit nervous that the best of all the years have gone by Turnaround, Every now and then I get a little bit terrified and then I see the look in your eyes Turnaround bright eyes, Every now and then I fall apart Turnaround bright eyes, Every now and then I fall apart And I need you now tonight And I need you more than ever And if you'll only hold me tight We'll be holding on forever And we'll only be making it right Cause we'll never be wrong together We can take it to the end of the line Your love is like a shadow on me all of the time I don't know what to do and I'm always in the dark We're living in a powder keg and giving off sparks I really need you tonight Forever's gonna start tonight Forever's gonna start tonight Once upon a tim

My Dead Soul
A black rose unfurls from within my heart Nourished by crimson tears that Flow freely from my eyes As wave after wave of hurt watch over me I scream out my rage and anguish Into the night where the Ever-changing moon listens The stars begin to dance In a slow serenade to my pain I’m in mourning for my dead soul It seems like all of it is gone It has died and left me weightless; Now it seems I’ve lost control Of the things that I kept hid, The things that I know The things that could harm you, I’ve lost my control Of the demons possessed me Those that strive to kill Caring for nothing; Bending all to their will I’m in mourning for people Whose lives are now forever changed All those people living lifeless; All their fates now rearranged Like they’re struck by tornados And they’re torn all apart Their lives become empty For them there’s no part In this thing that’s called safety They’re left all alone Empty and broken Away from their homes I’m in mo

Morning's are definitely not my thing. Blurry eyes, non-functional brain...oh yeah, I hate mornings. (Especilly before my cup of coffee first thing...) At any rate, I have a weird shift today...but a small consolation is that I'll be working in receiving today. Yay! Of course...I was supposed to work receiving on Monday and due to unforeseen circumstances I found myself working customer service instead. **frowns** And yesterday, I was supposed to be in receiving as well and once again found myself working elsewhere (not at customer service, thought...pity). Stayed up way too late last night, so my usual problems with mornings seems to be exacerbated. -_-; Blech. Oooh...excitement! (Though others may find it silly...) I received my first invite to a Lounge last night. **grinz** (Not really sure what that means, precisely, but I consider it a cool-beans event!) Well-pers...I think it's about that time already...if I hurry now, I can get ready for work, but also ha

Mind Games
Why oh why do people play mind games? I dont understand it or appreciate it. In my other blog "regrets" I talked about this "friend". Well that so called Friend text'd me tonight and we've been fighting for hours. He doesnt see my side of things. Its all about him. Funny 3 other people are totally on my side on this. Ugh! I just wish he'd go away. Its obvious he doesnt care about me so why bother msg me?!?!?
At The Bus Stop
Husband and wife are waiting at the bus stop with their nine children. A blind man joins them after a few minutes. When the bus arrives, they find it overloaded and only the wife and the nine kids are able to fit onto the bus. So the husband and the blind man decide to walk. After a while, the husband gets irritated by the ticking of the stick of the blind man as he taps it on the sidewalk, and says to him, 'Why don't you put a piece of rubber at the end of your stick? That ticking sound is driving me crazy.' The blind man replies, 'If you had put a rubber at the end of YOUR stick, we'd be riding the bus, so shut the h*ll up.'
Cauliflower Polonaise
Place rinsed cauliflower with leaves removed stem-side-down into a pot at least 3" taller than top of the cauliflower. Add 1 t salt and 1 T sugar and scald with boiling water to cover. Bring to boil and cook several min. uncovered (to release strong 'cabbagy' odor), then reduce heat to med. and cook covered until fork-tender but not overcooked (about 20 - 30 min.). In saucepan brown 3-4 T plain bread crumbs in 3-4 T butter or margarine, salt & pepper lightly. Carefully transfer whole cauliflower to colander to drip-dry, then place it in serving dish, gently break it up into serving-sized portions and garnish with browned buttered bread crumbs. If too thick, add a little more butter to skillet. It should be pourable enough to be spooned over the cauliflower.

30 Days Of Night ...
Editorial Review " 30 Days of Night" is the kind of gruesome but entertaining survival guide you pray you never have to follow: how to stop vampires killing you during the darkest days of Alaskan winter. Hey, it could happen. It certainly does in Barrow, Alaska, where vampires come to terrorize the isolated town, as seasonal darkness descends for a long month. From a safe distance -- in our own pocket of darkness, as it were -- it's a visceral kick to watch as a group of ever-dwindling survivors, led by young, resolute Sheriff Eben (Josh Hartnett), figures out how to outlast these powerful predators. Until sunlight returns and reduces the nasty suckers to black confetti, it's time to lie low and plan occasional guerrilla attacks. To survive, these guys -- are you taking notes? -- are going to need a good, sharp ax to sever the invaders' heads. (Forget about guns and bullets; they'll only annoy the vamps.) And as Eben discovers, it's vital to get a good clean cut or you'll be Ala

Dvd Review: The Beatles Celebration (1999)
Overview: By using rare footage of interviews and a walking tour of England, Geoffrey Giuliano looks at how The Beatles came together and split apart to become legends in music history. Likes: It better explores and explains why the Beatles broke up.; It also gives light to more insight on Ringo Starr and his impact on the group. Dislikes: There is an art house quality that distracts the viewer and makes it seem boring at times.; It barely explores the musical impact that The Beatles had on music of their time and now. In fact very, very little of their music is played and/or discussed at all. Out of four stars, I give this dvd two stars. The further discussion of why The Beatles broke up is good, but the lack of any music being used in it is very disappointing.
Movie Review: House Of Wax (2005)
Somewhat of a vehicle for Paris Hilton to make the transition from tv roles into the world of feature films, House Of Wax (2005) modernizes a 1953 classic horror film by the same name but does little to honor it. Plot: Friends accidentally falls into a trap by the Sinclair brothers to become permanent members of a wax museum. Likes: Methods of death are both inventive and a "hat-tip" to slasher films of old.: The set design (i.e. wax museum and old creepy house) are done really well.; Hilton is really not too bad of an actress. You can see her potential.; A few story twists that are surprising both not too over played. Dislikes: There is a point in the film that just don't make sense: One of the characters isn't killed by being sprayed in hot wax even though he should have been burned to death or at least suffocate due to his skin not being able to breathe.; There is also moment in the film that the writers or director could have paid tribute to the 1953 version. The two main
Movie Review: The Rocky Horror Picture Show (1975)
This is one of my most favorite musicals of all time. I think I have seen this film either on tv or VHS over 10 tens, but this is the first time I have got it on dvd format. Plot: Brad and Janet try to stop Dr. Frank-N-Furter and his gang from taking over Earth. Likes: Great songs. Memorable acting by the up-and-coming stars of Tim Curry and Susan Sarandon.; Cameo by Meatloaf. Dislikes: The second half is a bit slow going with more storyline and lesser quality songs. Rated R for gore, sexuality and mature themes. Kids' Caution: This is not a film for children. There are many references to homosexuality and bisexuality along with a violent death scene. Out of four stars, I give it 3 1/2 stars. The songs are great for the most part, but it does get slow at times.
Movie Review: Chicken Little (2005)
Ever wondered what happened after the sky fell? Well, Chicken Little answers these questions with action and a cool soundtrack. Plot: Chicken Little tries to save the world and regain the respect of his father by fighting aliens. Likes: Good soundtrack.; Good animation.; A nice moral tale about the importance of parent-child communication.; Great references and inside-jokes to various sci-fi movies and books. Dislikes: The non sci-fi jokes aren't funny.; Has a slow start.; The characters are stereotypes of the various kinds of kids you went to middle school with.; I think some of the characters could have been better cast. Rated PG for comic violence. Kid's Caution: A good film for kids that is no more violent than a Bugs Bunny cartoon. Out of 4 stars, I give it 3 stars. It has a good story moral, but could have been better casted.
Movie Review: Grease (1978)
In the late 1970's, Broadway went Hollywood by turning one of America's favorite musicals in a major motion picture. Plot: Danny and Sandy try to get through their teenage years and high school during the late 1950's. Likes: The songs are very memorable.; There are tons of future movie and tv stars, plus a few from classic tv.; A fast-paced story. Dislikes: The acting of John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John is a bit raw, but they both show potential. Rated PG for adult situations and language. Kid's Caution: Not too bad for them. I give it 2 1/2 stars. Great music very some raw talent.
Movie Review: Evita (1996)
Broadway meets Hollywood with this film version of Andrew Lloyd Webber's hit musical. Plot: "The hit musical based on the life of Evita Duarte, a B-picture Argentinian actress who eventually became the wife of Argentinian president and dictator Juan Perón, and the most beloved and hated woman in Argentina." (IMDB.Com) Likes: The music and lyrics are the best. Every song tells a small part of the storyline.; Madonna, Antonio Banderas and Jonathan Pryce all have good voices.; A cool political drama. Dislikes: A very long film at 135 minutes.; Can be slow at times. Rated PG for very mild violence. Kid's Caution: Nothing really bad for them. It may bore them though. I give it 4 stars. It is great despite its length.
Movie Review: Domestic Disturbance (2001)
Plot: "A divorced father discovers that his 12-year-old son's new stepfather is not what he made himself out to be." (IMBD.Com) Likes: A good traditional thriller where no one believes the kid as he discovers the truth. Dislikes: Not one of John Travolta's best acting stints. Rated R for violence and sexuality. Kid's Caution: Not for children. I give it 2 stars. Very traditional but also very predictable.
Movie Review: Cold Mountain (2003)
Plot: "In the waning days of the American Civil War, a wounded soldier embarks on a perilous journey back home to Cold Mountain, North Carolina to reunite with his sweetheart." (IMBD.Com) Likes: Great battlefield scenes.; It shows how the romance between the two main characters develops.; The characters are interesting to follow. Dislikes: Tries to be a modern "Gone With The Wind" (1939) too much. Rated R for violence and (well done) adult scenes. Kid's Caution: Not for children period. I give it 3 stars. A good story with interesting characters.
Movie Review: Charlie And The Chocolate Factory (2005)
Plot: Charlie is invited to tour a chocolate factory with four other children. The event changes his life forever. Likes: It moves quickly through the character set up, then slows down with the chocolate factory scenes so you can take in all the background.; Had just enough songs to breakup the action, but the were not over done or campy.; Colorful backgrounds and characters. Dislikes: A few scenes were a little too scary for little (5 and younger) kids. Rating: PG for language and quirkiness. Parent's Guide: Good for anyone over 5 years old. Out of 4 Stars: 3 Stars; Just needed to be a bit less scary.
Movie Review-catwoman (2004)
When you mix one part beautiful woman, one part love interest, one part superhero/villain and one part revenge tale, you get Catwoman. Plot: "A shy woman, endowed with the speed, reflexes, and senses of a cat, walks a thin line between criminal and hero, even as a detective doggedly pursues her, fascinated by both of her personas." (Source-IMDB.Com) Beyond this there is a tale of revenge and corporate greed. Likes: Halle Berry makes a great Catwoman in that she captures how the character is part good and evil. It is too bad she could not be used in another Batman film as this role.; The fight scenes are well executed as the storyline goes at a quick pace. Dislikes: Some of the special effects looked too computerized.; The villain, Sharon Stone's Laurel Hedare, was given too little screen time. Rated PG-13 for violence and adult situations. Parent's Guide: Nothing too bad. A great film for girls to see so they can see the power of womanhood. Prequel/Sequel Information:
Movie Review-"the Chronicles Of Riddick" (2004)
"The Chronicles of Riddick" is a very difficult to follow tale of this alien (Riddick) who is destined to kill this other alien-Necro guy. It all boils down to running gun-battle. The visual effects and fight scenes are pretty good. The actors' lines aren't since it doesn't help you understand the storyline. I found the bad guys (the Necro-aliens) interesting. They reminded me of the Borg from "Star Trek". The acting is ok, but it is mostly a lot of running, fighting and sweating. The women characters are just eye-candy. I heard that this was based on a comic book. Maybe it didn't translate well into a movie. Especially the ending, Riddick kills the Lord Marshal and for whatever reason gets to become the new ruler. Out of 4 Stars...2 Stars.
Movie Review-"shark Tale" (2004)
When I saw this film, it was on pay-per-view a while ago. My kids had seen it at school so it wasn't new to them, but it was to me. Basically I found it to be a kids version of "The Godfather" (1972) with "A Bug's Life" (1998) storyline. The characters were funny but not original. The animation was very good, but Reef City looked just like Tin Can City. It had a hip-hop feel to it. An interesting thing about it was its 2 underlining themes: race relations and homosexual tolerance. The race relations theme was set up in the sharks being like Whites and the fish being like Blacks. The homosexual tolerance theme was more covert. It was referred to by showing homosexuality through the guise of vegetarianism. I don't know if kids picked that up, but it was clear enough for adults. Out of 4 Stars, I give it 2 1/2 stars. Good animation but could have had more orginality.
Movie Review-"sky Captain And The World Of Tomorrow" (2004)
"SCWT" was a movie I have been waiting to see. I only paid $5 to see it on pay-per-view, and I am glad that is all I paid. Great Stuff: The scenery, costumes and special effects were top notch. The 1930s-1940s look was cool to see. Good Stuff: The action scenes were well done but not really gripping. Bad Stuff: The dialogue, characters and storyline were too comic bookish for me. Every line and character was a cliche of comic books. Maybe that was what the writer was going for. ( I did like the Sky Captain and Commanfer Freddie characters. They didn't take themselves seriously.) Interesting Aspects: What I really liked was how this movie is an example of all the 1930s-1940s movie serials that influenced George Lucas. I could see where he was inspired by them in making the "Star Wars" and "Indiana Jones" movies. Out of 4 Stars-2 Stars; A good reminder my movies long age, but short on good wrting and dialogue to make it a good modern film.
Movie Review-"malcolm X" (1992)
The 1992 "Malcolm X" is a biographic film that examines his adulthood with some flashbacks of his childhood. It shows how a flashy black mobster under went a spiritual transformation into a civil right leader. The most interesting part of the movie was hoe he underwent his spiritual journey into Islam. This took place in two parts of the movie. First when he was in prison and then when he made his pilgrimage to Mecca. Another interesting part was the background story about the rise of the Nation of Islam. It was an inside look in how it recruited and trained new leadership. There was even a bit of comic realism with a cameo by Rev. Al Sharpton playing a competing street preacher. Out of 4 stars-3 1/2 stars; Great acting by all, Good story telling but a bit long than it needed to be.
Movie Review-"pirates Of The Caribbean: The Curse Of The Black Pearl" (2003)
This 2003 pirate movie based on a ride at Disneyland. While the special effects of pirate ghosts and close range ship battles was good, everything else could have been better. First it was too long and that made the movie begin to drag towards the end. Second, Johnny Depp was a bad pirate and played Capt. Jack Sparrow like a cartoon character. Not one of his better performances. Third, the "Raiders of the Lost Ark" and "Titanic" elements added little to the movie. The supernatural storyline needed more explaining with flashbacks. The romance between the young couple was just campy. Lastly the ending was just unbelievable and awkward. It was rated PG-13. It had a lot of graphic violence despite being a movie for kids. Out of 4 Stars--2 stars; It could have been a lot better. I would have gone for a R rating by adding at least one sex scene with an actress with bigger boobs than the main female character.
Movie Review-"alien Vs. Predator" (2004)
"Alien Vs. Predator" is one of those movies that comes along for me that I like at all levels. It takes an adventure/sci fi storyline and adds plenty of action, gore, violence and a touch of humor to make a really good movie. The characters are all believable and realistic. The Aliens and Predators are totally awesome in how their fight each other. And the ending gives you a sense of closure with a tease of a possible sequel. My favorite scene was the first true battle between a drone Alien and a Predator warrior. They both really kick each other's butt. It reminded me of the lightsaber battle between Count Dooku and Yoda in "Star Wars-Episode II:Attack of the Clones". My kids thought it was scary in some parts, but overall liked it. Out of 4 Stars: 3 1/2 Stars
Movie Review-"the Stepford Wives" (2004)
I had seen the 1975 version once on tv. I still remembered the basic storyline plus how it was so shocking for being somewhat explicit for the time. (It had a sex scene between a couple in open view in their backyard.) The 2004 version is just a modernized version. It has the same basic storyline, a new ending, a gay couple and a lot of tongue-in-cheek moments that make fun of marriage, the showbiz and corporate America. (The sex scene has been moved indoors and made very comical.) While Nicole Kidman and Matthew Broderick go a good job, Bette Midler and the actors playing the gay couple steal the show. They made a possible bad remake into something new and fresh. Out of 4 Stars- 3 Stars. It makes a good, low stress couples movie.
Movie Review-"the Hulk" (2003)
I saw "The Hulk" on Encore many moons ago. While the special effects were good (especially the Hulk himself), the storyline and character development was frantic at best. I don't think it was a lot like the comic book. It was too surreal. The only character I found believable and worth following was Gen. Ross. He started as an uncaring SOB, but developed into someone who really cared for his nation, daughter, and Bruce Banner. I was shocked by how much of the movie was told from his point of view when the comic book never was. Well I hope there is not a "Hulk II". I give this one 1 1/2 stars out of 4.
Movie Review-"the Day After Tomorrow" (2004)
My family first watched "The Day After Tomorrow" on pay-per-view, but now we own it on dvd because my son loved it so much. Storyline- A paleo-climatologist tries to save his son and most of North America during Earth's second Ice Age. He faces uncaring bureaucrats, harsh weather and great personal loss as he treks to NYC. Message- There is any underlining moral of how mankind (mostly the US) has destroyed the environment because of its unchecked pollution of the atmosphere. This causes the polar ice caps to break up, the Atlantic ocean currents to change and the complete covering of the northern parts of US, Europe and Asia by ice. Mankind only learns that the environment must be protected after he has lost his most of his largest cities and nations. My Opinion- The special effects and action scenes were good. The character development and storyline was minimal, but was enough there to keep everything going. My favorite part was when US citizens had to illegally enter Mexico
Movie Review: Spider-man (2002)
A good comic book-based film. Plot: A young science student gets super-human spider abilities after being bit by a radioactive spider. Likes: A great tribute to the comic book with some good modern twists added.; The special effects are really good.; Good character development of major characters. Dislikes: Could have used a better villain for SM to fight. Rated PG-13 for stylized violence and action. Kid's Caution: I thought it was no worst than any Star Wars film. I give it 3 1/2 stars. A great tribute to the comic, but needed a better villian.
Movie Review-"spiderman 2" (2004)
For the most part it was pretty good. The main characters got more in depth, the special effects were as good as SM1, and the villain was cool. I liked how Doc Octopus was a honorable evil guy. Bent on accomplishing his goals with the help of his "thinking arms". It was predictable that he would go good at the end. I didn't like how they gave away the storyline to SM3. I am not a fan of the Green Goblin, and I was hoping Venom might be the next villain. So out of 4 stars, I give it 3.
Movie Review: Saw Ii (2005)
This follow-up to the 2004 horror hit "Saw". It truly lives up to the first movie in terms of gore and plot twists. Plot: Jigsaw, a serial killer out to teach others about the meaning of life, is back to teach a group of criminals and a corrupt cop about survival. Likes: Very suspenseful.; The horror and torture tests are even more shocking.; You never know what will happen next. Dislikes: Takes a little while to set up the overall plot.; Acting is a bit campy.; No real hero to the story.; Doesn't say what happens to Dr. Lawrence Gordon from the first film. Rated R for Gore, Torture, Drug Violence and Language. Kids' Caution: Not for children. Out of four stars, I give it three stars. It is a good horror film that could have been better connected to its predecessor.
Movie Review: Saw Iii (2006)
If this film wasn't the third installment of a horror film series, you could have just released it as Shakesspear In Blood. For this film is more like a Shakespearian play than horror film. Plot: The Jigsaw Killer uses a series of traps to test the forgiving power of a grieving father and a depressed doctor. Likes: Possibly the final film in the series, the storyline comes the background stories of Jigsaw, Amanda (his new fan) and what happened to his other victims from the first two films. This expands and beefs up the main storyline really well.; There are a few more twists in this one that lead to the possibility of a fourth film.; The film keeps the same topsy-turvy filming style with new death traps that seem to defy natural and science.; There is even a bit of learning taking place as you get to see some major surgery being done. Dislikes: It is a long film at 113 minutes.; It seems that the writers were running low on plot twists so they use Shakespear's old trick of ev

A Rainy Night
A Rainy Night The sound of rain on the roof, peaceful yet exciting. The sailor comes ashore for a new adventure. The sound grows louder, and as I wake and look around me, it is dark and I have to think. Where am I? Then I remember, the cabin in the woods, far away from the city. It is dark because there is no moon to shine into thru windows, the clouds are shedding rain down on us and it is a dark night. The rain hits the windows and the metal on the roof. Ping, plink, ping, the sound of the big rain drops hitting the metal roof above. It is a soothing sound once I realize what the noise is. I sit up and glance around the room. The foldout bed is in the great room, that is where we are, the night light in the kitchen glows and gives me a reference as to where things are. I settle down a bit and realize, what and where I am.

A Is For Affirmative Action
Affirmative action is defined as: " A policy or a program that seeks to redress past discrimination through active measures to ensure equal opportunity, as in education and employment." (This is from Dictionary.Com.) This generally related to college admissions and hiring/promotion of employees at work sites. I realized that minority groups have suffered (and continue to suffer) from policies that didn't allow them equal access to educational and employment resources. Aren't we punishing today's generation for the crimes of their parents? I have never knowingly kept a minority from obtaining anything I have worked for. I don't mind losing a scholarship or job to a minority who truly is more qualified than me for it. But I wasn't there when all this started and I have done my best to stop it. In fact, I once turned down a job because the restaurant owner only wanted to hire me because I was white. He wanted to put me in a job I was unqualified for because he couldn't find enough
B Is For Border Control
The issue of Border Control is really big here in AZ. It dominates all levels of politics and policy making. In general, illegals from Mexico come to the US seeking jobs and a better life. I can understand that since the Mexican economy and government is so corrupt. The gap between the rich and poor is super-wide. The effect of illegals on the US has caused a serious threat to public safety, social service resources and health care. In public safety, some illegals are here because they are criminals looking for easy marks. They know if caught for committing murder-1, the Mexican government will fight to keep them off death row. Public and private social services are being threatened with collapse. Many illegals are overrunning the systems with their requests for help before they even start paying into it. Health care is threatened since illegals don't pay their medical bills when they are taken to the hospital for sicknees or injuries. This is causing local hospitals to charge ex
C Is For Corporate Corruption.
In the last few years, we have seen tons of corporate corruption with Microsoft, Enron and Martha Steward. Generally I trust big business will do what is best for the US as long as they have the profit motive influencing them. I also believe the US government will protect the citizens from big businesses' abuses if they need to. What I don't like are how some people and groups attack large firms just because they make a profit or have grown to a large size. I say if you don't like a large firm, then don't buy their goods and services. Start a boycott. Organize a peaceful protest. Convince me how it will benefit me by shopping somewhere else. For example, McDonalds and Wal-Mart. All I ever hear about is how McDees is feeding poisons to kids and Wally-Mart is destroying "Main Street America." Well McDonalds isn't forcing anyone to eat there and/or buy unhealthy food. And Wal-Mart offers lower prices on things I want and need that "Main Street America" can't provide at a price I
E Is For Executive (presidential) Pardons
Under federal law, the President has the power to grant full pardons to current and past felons of any and all crimes they may have committed. A pardon can be granted at any time for a person dead or still alive. It is tradition that the president grants pardons at Christmas/New Year's. In finding presidential pardon statistics (which took some effort), I discovered that Pres. George W. Bush has not granted any pardons, except for a few Thanksgiving turkeys. I found that Pres. Turman granted the most with 1913 and Pres. GHW Bush with 74. Many believe, and rightly so, that the President uses this power to help out political allies and/or those felons they would not have sent to jail themselves. Some feel Pres. Clinton did this with some Jewish felons to get Jews to vote for his wife's senatorial campaign. Sometimes a president does this to move the nation away from a stressful situation. Pres. Ford used this as his reason to pardon Pres. Nixon for his involvement in the Watergate
G Is For Global Warming
I will never confess to be an expert on environmental issues in general. Nor on the topics of global warming and the greenhouse effect. For the most part I think most info about the environment is bias from all points of view. I also don't have a high regard for environmemtalists. Many cry over the loss of a baby tiger on Monday and then turn right around to support the abortion of human babies on Tuesday. That said, now onto the day's topic. I tried to seek out unbias info on global warming for this essay. So I looked it up in my new 2005 world almanac. It has a whole page dedicated to he topic, and sights its source as the US EPA. Basically global warming is the worldwide rising of temperatures due to the greenhouse effect. The greenhouse effect is the trapping of thermal radiation in Earth's atmosphere. This thermal radiation is trapped in the molecules of both the natural and artificial greenhouse gases. The natural ones being CO2, water vapor, CH4, O3, and N2O. The artificia
H Is For Hall Of Fames For Sports
Hall of Fames for Sports are the cathedrals to the gods of sporting events and athletes. They honor the greatest games, players, coaches and even media announcers. I think they are ok as long as one remembers that sports are just one interesting part of life. I would love to visit the NFL Hall of Fame. I am an NFL fan, and their is a lot of things to see. But it is not my Mecca. I can die peacefully enough if I never go there. What I think is nuts is how some towns and counties build local halls of fame. There is one here in Tucson, AZ: the Pima County Sports Hall of Fame. It honors local athletes and teams. But all it is a tourist attraction for the locals, when it is open. Now there is something worst than local halls of fame: hall of fame/all-star games. They are boring because they players don't play their best. They are too busy looking good, screwing their wives or signing a new contract or product endorsement. I think we should just end the games and have an award dinne
K Is For Kryptonite And Superman
I was first introduced to "Superman" via my mom who read the very first SM comics as a little girl and who took me to see the SM movies. Leter in college I began to collect selected SM comics myself. Superman is an appealing character because he has super-powers but chooses to use them to help others. But he is also a very human character with feelings and a weaknesses. The main one being Kryptonite, an element from his own home world that weakens his powers and can kill him. What is funny about Kryptonite is that there really is an element like that on Earth. Kryton (Kr) is number 36 on the Periodic Table of Elements. It has an atomic weight of 83.80, and was discovered in 1898 by Sir William Ramsay and Morris William Travers. It is used to help make light bulbs shine. Well, end of the science lesson. I think it is because Superman isn't perfect that comic fans love him. He is an everyman that has a regular job, relationship problems and, in the end, mortal like us. And this
L Is For Labor Unions.
My Labor Background: My family for the most part is pro-management. My dad grew up during some of the worst steelworker strikes in Pittsburgh, PA history. I have never knownlying belonged or pay dues to a labor union. My wife's family has several members in it that belong to various local unions. Except for the following aspects of the economy and our society, unions are ok: Education, military, public safety (police, fire, rescue), medicine (MDs, nurses, techs), sanitation, transportation and all levels of government employees. I think unions are great for those who work in retail, food service and other minimum-wage jobs. God I wish I had a union at Cedar Point Amusement Park. We really needed one there. Unions have helped our nation by ending/curving child labor, pushing for workplace safety and good benefits for all workers. I also think unions have hurt our nation too. Some have allowed organized crime to grow. Some have kept minorities oppressed by limiting their members
M Is For Marriage (both Gay And Straight)
Marriage is a scared act between two consenting adults who want to pledge their lives to each other before their community either by civil or religious ceremony. I believe that marriage should be allowed between any two persons, of any sex, as long as both of them are consenting adults. Thus I don't believe society should allow marriages between a minor and an adult. Nor a human and some animal or inanimate object. I believe that if a social institution, i.e. a church, synagogue or mosque, should be allowed to decide whether or not it will marry an adult couple without fear of persecution. I believe civil institutions should marry any adult couples as long as their marriage is lawful. I believe that other communities and states, within the same nation, should recognize only the lawful marriages of each other. Finally, I believe that marriage is a part of human society that should be open to people regardless of their sexuality as long as it follows the conditions stated abo
N Is For Nuclear Proliferation
Since the US dropped the first and second atom bombs on Japan in August 1945, we have been living in the post-modern/nuclear age. A time in which mankind now has the power to destroy itself a thousand times over. As nuclear weapon technology has been developed and obtained by at least 10 different nations. Some got their technology for the Us by being our ally, while others got it through nuclear spies. The number of nuclear weapons started with 6 in the US and now is as many as about 20310. (Source: 2005 World Almanac) I grew up in the late 1970's and 1980's in which I was taught that nuclear weapons were needed to prevent the "SuperPowers" (US and USSR) from destroying each other. I remember in middle school some of my classmates being afraid that they would die in a nuclear war because Pres. Reagan and any one of many Soviet Leaders were wanting to push the button. I was more worried over getting all my homework done and working on Reagan's 1984 campaign. I also remember
P Is For ...pope John Paul Ii: His Life And Times.
Always media star, Pope John Paul II has been in the press lately as his health has declined dramatically. Soon after being the 301st Pope of the Roman Catholic Church for nearly 27 years, he will pass on but his influence on mankind will be felt for generations to come. "Karol Wojtyla was born on May 18, 1920 at Wadowice, Poland. For many years Karol believed God was calling him to the priesthood. He studied secretly during the occupation of Poland, and was ordained to the priesthood on November 1, 1946. He earned a doctorate in theology in 1948 at the Angelicum in Rome, Italy. From 1948 to 1951 he served as a parish priest in Poland's Krakow diocese and then returned to study philosophy at the Jagiellonian Univsersity at Krakow. From 1952 to 1958 Wojtyla taught social ethics at the Krakow Seminary, and became a professor at the University of Lublin in 1956. Pope Pius XII appointed Wojtyla an auxiliary bishop in Krakow on July 4, 1958, and Pope Paul VI appointed him Archbishop of
Q Is For "quantum Leap" Tv Show.
From March 1989 to May 1993, "Quantum Leap" was a new look at time travel and American history as it opened with the following monologue: "Theorizing that one could time travel within his own lifetime, Dr. Sam Beckett stepped into the Quantum Leap accelerator and Vanished...He woke to find himself trapped in the past, facing mirror images that were not his own and driven by an unknown force to change history for the better. His only guide on this journey is Al, an observer from his own time, who appears in the form of a hologram that only Sam can see and hear. And so Dr. Beckett finds himself leaping from life to life, striving to put right what once went wrong and hoping each time that his next leap will be the leap home." Over the four years it was aired on NBC,"QL" had Sam become people of all sexes, races, nationalities, classes and mental abilities. He had to set history right before he could leap on another life. My most favorite episodes were entitled "Lee Harvey Oswal
R Is For Rap Music-the Good, Bad And The Ugly Of Modern Music.
Over the 20 odd years, modern music has been heavily influenced by the sub-branch of rock-n-roll known as rap music. Some has been good, some bad and some pretty ugly as it has developed over the years. The Good: I like early rap. RUN-DMC, the Fat Boys, early Fresh Prince (Will Smith) and Salt-N-Pepa had fast beat songs that were fun to listen to. They talked about parties, dating and teenage problems in a non-threatening way. Today, I am a big fan of Eminem. He says things I can relate to as my tastes have become more adult. The Bad: Rap then started to become darker as it grew in popularity. I think as it got more airplay, the artists started expressing their views on society and its darker aspects. To me, rap became bad when it started making heroes out of drug dealers and murders (i.e. Notorious B.I.G.). In a time when kids needed more heroes to admire, the music industry throws money at people who sold drugs to children so they can rap about it. The Ugly: The whole East C
S Is For The Salvation Army.
When I was about 12 years old, my family began to attend church services at the main Salvation Army corps in my hometown of Richmond, VA. It was an unique experience that helped me through the trials of being a teenager In 1865, William Booth,an ordained Methodist minister [and] aided by his wife Catherine, formed an evangelical group dedicated to preaching among the “unchurched” people living in the midst of appalling poverty in London’s East End. Booth’s ministry recognized the interdependence of material, emotional and spiritual needs. In addition to preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ, Booth became involved in the feeding and shelter of the hungry and homeless and in rehabilitation of alcoholics. Booth and his followers, originally known as "The Christian Mission", became The Salvation Army in 1878, when that organization evolved on a quasi-military pattern. Booth became “the General” and officers’ ranks were given to his ministers. The Salvation Amy has functioned successfull
U Is For The United Nations.
On June 26, 1945, 50 nations signed the UN Charter so to establish a new worldwide body that work to maintain peace on Earth. Since then every nation, except Taiwan and Vatican City, has joined. The UN has worked to keep the peace by feeding the hungry, improving the health of women and children, negotiating the end of wars, and providing economic help to small nations when needed. Despite its good works, it has had its share of corruption. Lately, the UN Oil-For-Food scandal has shown how the UN ambassadors used the selling of Iraqi oil to line their own pockets. I am not surprised sine most of its ambassadors are corrupt leaders from corrupt nations. Getting a kickback is just a part of doing business to these people. Many Americans believe the UN is good as long as the US military isn't fighting under UN command. I agree with this, but I also believe the US should allow its citizens to join an UN-ran military force used for peacekeeping. I once had a professor say that the U
V Is For Voting Requirements.
Today's topic may anger a few readers since my views on voting requirements are a bit....elitist in some ways. Voting rights were first given to white, land-owning males. Then expanded to males of any race (the 15th Amendment). Then to women of any race (the 20th Amendment). And lastly to any US citizen 18 years old or older (the 26th Amendment). While these are all nice, we have developed a voting population that, I believe, doesn't deserve to be allowed to vote. We now have a voting population of citizens who haven't the education nor experience to be allowed to vote. Education: I believe a voting citizen should be an informed one, a literate one. And believe it of not about 20% of the US adult population is not able to read. I feel that a voter should have to read at least at a 6th grade level in order to vote. If the they can read at this level, then they can read an USA Today or any other local newspaper. Experience: I believe that a voting citizen should have some lif

W Is For Watergate Revisited.
During the second term of US Pres. Richard Nixon (R-CA), members of his staff burglarized and then covered up a break-in into the DNC headquarters in the Watergate office complex. This lead to Pres. Nixon resigning and some White House staffers going off to jail. All this occurred because of the articles written by Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein in the The Washington Post based on information given to them by "Deep Throat". On Tuesday, May 31, 2005, Vanity Fair reported that "W. Mark Felt, 91, who was second-in-command at the FBI in the early 1970s," was "Deep Throat". Why did Felt do it?: Some think he did it because he was upset that he was pasted over for becoming the new head of the FBI. Why is "Deep Throat" a big deal?: It was one of the 20th century's biggest mysteries that historians (of crime and US presidents) has pondered. It was one of the first times that a secret information source lead to the downfall of a major political figure. Why all the hub-bub now?:
X Is For X-rated Movies.
First of all, the "X" rating is giving to films that have either explicit sex , graphic violence or other adult topics in the film. There is no official rating of "XXX". This is usually used in advertising to make a movie appear to be more pornographic than other films. X-Rated Films-A History: They first got their start in the 1910's with stag films. These were movies shown at men's parties that had dancing naked women and/or couples having intercourse. As film progressed, stag films became art house films. Other subgenres developed with soft/hardcore, S&M, snuff and sexploitation. The X-rated film really took off when everyone started to own VCRs in the 1980's. Now there is porn dvd's, adult pay-per-view channels and the internet. Have any X-rated films won any mainstream awards?: Yes, Midnight Cowboy(1969) won an Oscar for Best Picture. Effect on Society: X-rated films have changed American society in, I think, two major ways: what sex is, and what sex can be. With X-rated
Y Is For Young People In Pro-sports.
Over the last 20-30 years, pro sports has drafted younger players in all the major sports. In general the NBA and MLB will draft high school kids, while the NFL and MLS (pro soccer) will go after college kids. Benefits of Young Pro Players: They add new blood into sports that quickly go stagnate as teams center themselves around franchise players. This new blood is developed and then graduates to the coaching and management staffs.; They draw in younger fans and of both sexes to buy team gear. Drawbacks of Young Pro Players: Few attend and/or finish college.; Many are taken advantaged of by their own families since they are seen as the meal tickets out of poverty.; They generally have short careers and are immature with their own conduct. What Could Be Done to Help Young Pro Players: 1. Require them to attend college for at least two years. If they finish all four years with a degree, then great. If they leave before graduating, then have them pay back all the scholarship m
Z Is For The Zodiac.
Many people, including my wife, are big into following horoscopes based on the zodiac sign. They believe that how the stars and planets are lined up when they are born says a lot about their personality and future in this world. I believe that we make our own chores that end up shaping our destiny. I believe that horoscopes and the zodiac gives us an interesting and for fun look at ourselves, but not the end all to our lives on earth. So I guess you could call me an "unbeliever". The modern zodiac used by most consists of 12 signs for every month of the year. My wife and I are Aries. My oldest daughter is Capricorn. My youngest daughter is Gemini. My son is Cancer. The movie Thir13en Ghosts (2001) told of a Black Zodiac. It consists of 13 doomed spirits that symbolize varies forms of death and damnation. No particular spirit is associated with any particular month especially since we don't have 13 months. While many think this is used by users of dark magic, it was totally mad

"love To Taste Your Love"
Even though I've never had you, I still miss your body. Even though you've never been next to me, beside me in bed, I've fantasized about it so often that it seems like you should be. I think about you all the time the way you'd feel, the way you'd smell, how I'd touch and taste you if you were here. How much I want to please you. How much I need to please you, my darling. I know you've been with other women before. But I know I could please you, if you'd just give me the opportunity. So that's what I've been doing this evening. Fantasizing about you. Dreaming about making our first time so very special. In my mind, you're lying in bed next to me, and you're smiling, and I want you. You're so soft, so soft in my mind that I have to reach for you. I've always dreamed about pulling you close to me, your head resting beneath my chin. I wish I could wrap my arms around you, one hand in your hair, the other moving up and down your belly in circles. You're so soft beneath my fingert

How Freaky Are U N Bed
I Got This Yesterday...
Ok, so those who care know. I have issues with my Parenting time to see my kids. My ex doesn't want to honor the court order. She missed on 8/19/07 and we have a contempt hearing on the 30th. I have recently found work but, I have to work every Sunday. Which every other Sunday I am supposed to see the kids for four hours at the same time I am to be at work. So I tried to re-schedule the time and day without going back to court. She already made an agreement then on the day of notified me she had to work after she spent two days in Chicago without the kids. Now I get the following email. This is proof that I am not making up her behavior. Since I seem to be getting ignored and no longer rated by others on this site anymore. Jerry, I do not have a problem rescheduling this visitation. You are asking me to be kind and reschedule because you have to work, and I can be kind, and work with you to find a better time for you to come. I am requesting, however, that y
Combating Domestic Violence: Obligations Of The State
COMBATING DOMESTIC VIOLENCE: OBLIGATIONS OF THE STATE COMBATING DOMESTIC VIOLENCE: OBLIGATIONS OF THE STATE by Radhika Coomaraswamy United Nations Special Rapporteur on Violence Against Women* Domestic violence, whether it is perpetrated by private or state actors, constitutes a violation of human rights. It is the duty of states to ensure that there is no impunity for the perpetrators of such violence. Often state policies and inaction perpetuate or condone such violence within the domestic sphere. States have a double duty under international human rights law. They are not only required not to commit human rights violations, but also to prevent and respond to human rights abuses. In the past, human rights protection was interpreted narrowly – state inaction to prevent and punish violations was not viewed as a failure in its duty to protect human rights. The concept of state responsibility has now developed to recognize that states also have an obligation to t
Impact On Children
Impact on children Children who have witnessed domestic violence or have themselves been abused, exhibit health and behaviour problems, including problems with their weight, their eating and their sleep.39 They may have difficulty at school and find it hard to develop close and positive friendships. They may try to run away or even display suicidal tendencies. Domestic Violence and HIV/AIDS Nearly 14 million women today are infected with HIV and the rate of female infection is rising. A forthcoming study from WHO finds that the greatest risk of HIV infection for many women comes from a regular partner, and is heightened by an unequal relationship that makes it difficult, if not impossible, to negotiate safe sex. For these women, sex is not a matter of choice.35 A study of women aged 18 and over in one province in Zimbabwe found that 26 per cent of married women reported being forced to have sex when they did not want to. It is widely acknowledged that, even when a

Two Prostitutes
Two prostitutes were riding around town with a sign on top of their car which said: "Two Prostitutes -- $50.00." A policeman, seeing the sign, stopped them and told them they'd either have to remove the sign or go to jail. Just at that time, another car passed with a sign saying: "JESUS SAVES." One of the girls asked the officer, "How come you don't stop them?!" "Well, that's a little different," the officer smiled . . "Their sign pertains to religion." So the two ladies of the night frowned as they took their sign down and drove off. The following day found the same police officer in the area when he noticed the two ladies driving around with a large sign on their car again. Figuring he had an easy arrest, he began to catch up with them when he noticed the new sign which now read: "Two Fallen Angels Seeking Peter -- $50.
Weird Shark Facts
Sharks can sense a drop of blood from 2.5 miles away. They can detect one part of blood in 100 million parts of water. Sharks are so powerful that their bite can generate a force of up to 6 tons per square inch. Sharks, in their 400 million years on earth, have shown an extraordinary ability to resist cancer and other diseases. This has raised hopes among medical researchers that the oceans' most feared predator might turn out to be the cancer patient's best friend. Investigators continue to study the immune system of sharks to see if it can provide the answer to stopping the spread of cancer in humans. Sharks can live up to 100 years. The biggest shark is the whale shark which can be up to 50 feet (15 m) long. It has approximately 300 rows of teeth, with hundreds of tiny teeth in each row. It's a filter feeder and sieves enormous amounts of plankton to eat through its gills as it swims. It is also the biggest fish in the sea. The second biggest fish and shark is the ba
