Let’s remember

by L.P. Stribling Remember that one day you’ll remember none of this, …..and in the absence of that memory, Your soul will return to the Infinite, As complete, endless, and smiling as it began.

S – Town (*a cast for Serial fans) NO SPOILERS

If you’re a podcast person, you may want to check this one out. Let’s start that one over. If you’re a podcast fan and you enjoyed the podcast called Serial (click here for link) (made by Sarah Koenig last year), you will enjoy this new podcast called S-Town (or Shittown), done by Brian Reed along with This American Life. I’m not going to ruin any of it for you because I just don’t like spoilers. I’m not into making deadlines for something. For example, if a show has been out for 12 years and now the fans just want to start talking…

Balls

by L.P. Stribling     “Okay, now do you believe me? She had me by the balls, Frank. And I mean that quite literally. Balls. All of my balls in all of her decrepit granny paws.” Bart took another chomp of his double-bacon cheeseburger and chewed while he spoke, symmetric specks of grease glistened on either side of his mouth under the neon pulse of the late-night Burger Bobby joint. The blue bill of his Pepsi hat seemed to bob upon his forehead as his animations grew. Frank sat across from him smoking, his eyes half closed, blinking mildly to…

Prepping for IT

And I just watched the trailer for It, and damn, that looks pretty good. I have a certain way of seeing things when it comes to horror films (*and really it’s that I just have standards. Can you blame me?) It doesn’t count if the movie uses sudden movements and loud sudden sounds to freak out the watcher. No, I’m sorry, that’s not scary; it’s annoying. Anyone will jump at that kind of stuff. Ridiculous. So yeah, if you want to make a real horror movie (not a “jumper”), it is my personal opinion that you need to really build…

Just get to the end – (a C.W. post)

If you’ve never read Chucky’s stuff, he’s got a real way with words. He’s got a way with words the way Charmin has a way with toilet paper, or Lucky Charms has a way with rainbows, or MacGyver has a way with turning a shitty Chevy into a moderately useable vehicle. I’ve been reading Chucky’s stuff for the past few years and I must admit that he’s a fantastic source of writerly inspiration (see below). This right here, is the usual stuff you can expect to find from this mastermind of writerly inspiration. He reminds us here that all writing…

Robot Dance

Don’t know who the kid is; didn’t spend that much time looking at it. Someone labeled this “Best Robot Dance Ever,” and I thought ‘why not?’ Damn.

Regardless

by L.P. Stribling Start over, you need to start over. Not entirely, but with your thoughts, With where you think you need to be. Start over. ’T’s cold outside. Empty. Don’t see many people walking around. You’re not them. Focus on you. You’re ready to meet your own people, Remember, we’re starting over. I’m a writer. Regardless. Regardless of what words are, Written on my lanyard, of what it says on my driver’s license, my résumé, or what comes of the mouths of my loved ones Pertaining to the question of “what it is I do.” I’m a writer. And…

So …. the dragon

J and I are reading a series. You may have heard of it. I’ve dropped this info in the site. We’re reading Robert Jordan’s The Wheel of Time. It’s fantastic. I remember reading it around 15 years ago and only got up through book 5. Put it down because..well, life I guess, youthful judgments which may or may not have been valid. Who knows. Times change, as do attitudes, perceptions, and overall views on the minutiae of it all. If you haven’t been up on the details, we’ve begun the series anew. I think J has gotten up to around…
