Back To Basics

All things have their known and unknown.
It isn’t always the shadowy side that is the
Sometimes it is the things we know so well
That we have experienced again and again
That still finds the biggest shock
To take from us
While the unknown stays so
Slipping again into the shade.

A Day Early, Bro

For those who believe in God, most of the big questions are answered. But for those of us who can't readily accept the God formula, the big answers don't remain stone-written. We adjust to new conditions and discoveries. We are pliable. Love need not be a command or faith a dictum. I am my own God. We are here to unlearn the teachings of the church, state, and our educational system. We are here to drink beer. We are here to kill war. We are here to laugh at the odds and live our lives so well that Death will tremble to take us.
-Charles Bukowski

Ain't She Cute

What the Hell!?
A couple of buddies told me to go on different Internet sites for dating and such.
Well, I am not really looking for anything, but the lure of the unknown drew me in.
So I have decided to go deep.
That, and in my searches, which I can assure you are nearly purely academic in nature,
I bumped into this other site, Second Life.
I read about it. It seemed horrible. Almost an anti-social to the real world, web world.
Then I made up an Avatar. It looks cool and named after Grimjack (sort of).
So now it is fun.
I have spent all of twenty minutes on it. I don’t know if I will do more but just making up the dude was fun.
Back to the other thing.
Plenty of Fish.
I don’t think it is for me, but my friends say it is a blast.
So, like I said, I am going Deep.
All the horny, need sex types will be hearing from me.
All of them.
Just to see what happens.
Will I go out and jump into a bunch of beds?
I really doubt that is an option!
I was talking to an Old Sort of Flame tonight. It was nice.
It is odd though that you can forget that someone has so much to them.
Rant over.
Rock on!

“The Nerd is Strong in this one.”

For all of those who have rolled initiative
Knowing they could never
Cleave through all the
Bad Guys.
Twenty Five years.
For the yells following that 20.
Hundreds of Hours.
For the late nights fueled by imagination.
Thousands of Rolls.
For the friends and the laughter.
Millions of Kobolds.
For the Dice.

There is a strange and near ominous peace floating around.
Simple little glimpses tease the wonderment and dreams.
Tell you that there is something
Just out of sight.
Just out of reach.
Just on the other side of knowing.
The amazing feeling that there is
A precipice.
Yawning in its unavoidable
Fuck. Uncaring
Like seeing the dark shapes in the sea below you
So beautiful.
So final.
Yet it is going to be such a powerfully new
There is nothing to do but let it happen.
That is sort of what I am feeling.
I haven’t given up so much as
Became engrossed with the possibilities
Presented by Letting Go.

Sunday Song IX - When you Need

Blood keeps drinking away
Certain of its destination
Driving through New Orleans at night
Gotta find a destination
Just one fix
Life keeps slipping away
Fighting in a war with damnation
Poised, keep cutting away
I’m looking in through to salvation
Just one fix
Like if I boarded a train
Trying to take in another station
Join us and the choice will be made
Unless we kill the lie as a nation
Just one fix

More than Meets the Eye

I liked the Transformers. I also liked the new Die Hard.
It is good when the summer blockbusters are worth seeing.
Makes things good for a movie dude like me.
In other thoughts, I am sort of wondering what to do.
There are two options, and whichever one I pick,
I know that after
I will wish I picked the other one.
So, I am reasoning, that if I am going to
My choice, either way,
I might as well choose the one that combines that
With as much smiles and happy memories as possible.
But is it that simple?
How do people deal with REAL problems?!

300th Post. All those Ghosts.

The light rain is welcomed.
Cool air in the early eve.
Stranger thoughts I have had.
Rarely so persistent.
It is time.
Heal and build.
I knew it would be.
It had to be.
