So I recently joined a writing site that wasn’t associated in any way with some of the things I’ve had published. I thought that I would post stories on there that I would consider to be my seconds. They’re not quite polished or are stories that didn’t quite fit what I wanted to submit.
I have two stories in to set up kind of what I would like to do. Put stuf out there that isn’t quite my best but was still fun too write. I will soon post the url so people can go scope them out. Stay tune
So something that just chaps my hide is when people call chaps, butt less chaps (forum friendlier name but we all get it right? Okay, moving on). Why not call them frontless chaps. Oh, oh,oh, how about moose knucle curtains. For example of moose knuckle watch ‘they live’ with rowdy roddy piper.
now the usual rant about taxes, they suck, don’t like paying them. Why not use our tax money for something useful. I vote for sending Hollywood adrift in the Pacific, how bout sending Taylor Swift t
Well that was a short lived btreak as some may have noticed from a few postings in the forums. Due to some real life crap that goes on I was pretty messed up for a bit. I won’t go in to it so don’t ask but some RL friends recommended that I continue to come around.
so with that being said i have something in common with Arnold because I like him came back. Well minus the cyborg body that is.
So a couple weeks ago I said I was going to take a break from the internet. Well I had some reasons for this that I just won’t get in too. So anyway this will be my final post here at UM so I can put things in order. Before anyone jumps the gun and thinks the absolute worst, no I’m not going to jail, and I am Not going to hurt myself. I just have far too many things on my plate at the moment to be coming and posting here. Thanks to all the people that I have become friends with here, I will
So I use a music streaming site, I won’t name it but it’s been around a while and yes it is a legal streaming site.
I enjoy a very wide variety of music that includes classical (Bach, Motzart, Beetoven etc), 80’s butt rock (don’t ask), 60’s and 70’s rock, Blues, chinese opera, dubstep, industrial, goth, etc. Now the problem is on every channel but one they have recommendations based on the artists I have choosen fairley well. They might be songs that I don’t necessarily like but based on th
So I decided to take a wee break as opposed to a pee break and drop on in for brain shake. So I have been working on a writing project for the last (20+ years now) and I am finally happy with the way it’s turning out. Sometimes it drives me bonkers when I get hyper critical about whatever project I am working on. It’s not so much about being worried about what others think because theit will always be people who don’t like your expression on any sort of art form.
other times I can pop out
I have a super power. That’s right a bonafide super power, and some people can’t stand it. Please let me explain.
I was out having a bite at a local sub sandwich shop and I was chating with one of the employees as I am a semi regular customer. Anyway i said something fairly snarky and another customer laughed as the were sucking down a soda. Needless to say but yep it came back pout the nose. The employee asked if they were okay etc and they said ya but went into the bathroom to clean up
With a title like that it should be obvious but you might be surprised. Oh wait you wanted an anidotical story to go with that? Well I personally have never done that, not much for cooking while watching “free willey”. Who would be really, other than a masochist. There other hobbies I have that are much less likely to put me on a Darwins list.
I used to do weird things when I was youn.... scratch that, I still do weird things but they aren’t super cringe worthy. Unless you count watching a
If and when aliens come to earth hopeing for a good deal at our global yard sale, they should be greated by Weird Al. How great would that be? The great polka comedian as our ambassador.
We couldn’t have William Shatner he would just date the hot one, Bill Cosby? Can we say roofies kids? Of course we can. Dr. Demento could be the mc but not kanye west, auto tune would probably be the intergalactic middle finger and then Zappo we would be exterminated.
Thinking about Daleks, no pepper
Okay so I know that it’s been a while since my last post, I do sometimes forget as I do a hell of a lot of writing in my non plugged in to the interwebs life. So one might ask what does this U.M. Weirdo write about? Well that’s a good question. I am currently working on a series of short stories for some horror serials, as well as some high fantasy sword and sorcery stuff.
I have some dr. Who fan fiction (sorry newer whovians, I mostly write stories about doctors 1-7), perhaps I might post
So Haloween is my absolute favorite of all time holiday. It's not just the candy, horror films, or scantily clad revilers (above the legal age of course). It seems that ithis is the time of year when when even the weirdness is weirder than usual.
During the summer months, high weirdness gets blamed on the heat, in the autumn it is blamed on the thinning of the veil or the ever increasing darkness as we march to wimter. Lets just keep things weird, that's all. So here are a few Haloween mo
So I was talking to a couple of siblings today about ghosties and stuff. Part of that discussion was about how kids see things that go bump in the night easier because they haven't had rhe real world crammed down their gobs yet. Perhaps it's a little different these days since electronics are so prevalent these days that maybe ghosts have to work that much harder to get noticed.
I wonder what a spirit would have to do to pry someones eyes from their smart phone as the played pokemon go. Pe
Since humans like to visit the woods to relax and recreate do bigfoot go to the city? If they did would they put on a human suit? After all humans put on monkey suits and act like primates for laughs and giggles.
Can you imagine a bigfoot at the outdoor bigfoot comedy club doing their routine in a human suit. They would open with "you know Gurtok I don't really believe in humans. All you have for proof is some fuzzy pictures and foot casts, humans don't seem to have toes, how weird is tha
Recently the Brexit vote had passed by popular vote, today the U.S. Celebrates their Amerexit. In the movie Independence day 2 the world will give another right rowdy send off to space aliens.
All this shuffling around and exits from this and that I am reminded of a very important saying. "Never trust a bow legged, albino, reticulated, python. They will smooth bite your face off like a rabid monkey barbarion with mange and a flea infestation."
Have fun, be safe, and stay off the drape
I remember a time in highschool, I was in biology and we were having a pop quiz that day. Roughly 5 minutes in to the quiz some one started saying out loud "bum bum bum bum bum" followed by some one across the room belting out "Flash!", and the whole class sang out "ohh oh, savior of the universe!"
needless to say the teacher stopped the test and told us that we passed, merely because they liked that film. So thank you Flash Gordon, you helped me pass a biology pop quiz. The lesson of to
Story telling has always been a time honored tradition. I always enjoyed listening to the story my uncle would tell about how he was killed by the elusive giant tree weasle while off in the jungles hunting pygmy mosquitos. Of course when I questioned the validity of above said story my uncle would angry and possess my pet goldfish named hermes and make it jump out of his bowl to get eaten by the cat.
Another story I enjoyed was the one I heard about some time back.... I honestly don't reme
Erm gosh nabbit, now for something inspirational with a title like that. I suppose it's acceptable to follow if the view is desirable, or perhaps you don't have the motivation to be a leader. Types of motivation could be a pack of wild dingos attempting to nab the baby srapled to your butt. I don't recommend this as dingos are deadly poisonous, one look at them and you drop dead. There are only two known antidotes for dingo poisoning, one is being a naturally born citizen of Australia, the se
Interesting title is it not? I mean that's why you are here really. It's okay, I won't tell anyone if you are secretly enamored with cat farts, or the mysteries in them. Actually there is no real mystery to a cat fart. Much like any animal, diet, and how much air you actually swallow in the course of a meal will determine whether or not you fart. Farting can be fun, unless you are on the receiving end of the green death bomb from Uranus. This actual blog has no real purpose really, other t
I have read various accounts of people using Auras to protect themselves. One of the best descriptions of this I had found in the book "Grimoire for The Apprentice Wizard" By Oberon Zell. It is written with younger audiences in mind (junior and senior high school) but the teachings apply to any and all who wish to learn the craft. It is there for all of us if you open yourself up to the possibilities to working magick. I had developed a method that was completely different from the one in the bo
Well I have been taking some time off from writing in the forums as of late and have been rather busy. I have been summoned for Jury duty which sucks munchkins but my attempts to get out of it has failed. Hopefully that won't tear me away too much from here, well at least more then necessary. I have started re-reading the Wheel of Time series, written by Robert Jordan, the last and final book will be released some time this fall for those who might enjoy the series. Yes the beloved author ha
I have noticed lately a rash of demon summoning, or demon possession posts recently. Evil entities have a rich tradition in several cultures. In Christianity there are the fallen angels, demons, devils, and nephalim. Islam has the Djinns, Buddhists have demons, Nordic traditions have the giants, and Loki etc. Voudoun has a rich tradition of practitioners being possessed by unseen beings that give them various powers. Now I do realize there are those on this site that do know a deal about th
On this round of the Haiku hoedown, had to start with one that I wrote with an actual UM member in mind. That and I was watching some old He-Man episodes and inspiration hit.
Princess of power
Is saving the universe
All praise to She-ra
Edgar Allen Poe
Writer of fine poetry
And scary stories
Lost in woods at night
Wolves howling at the full moon
Striking fear in hearts
She’s the Shooting Nun...
Opposed to the flying Nun,
Avengers of God
Symphony of doom
Now some time ago around 4 years ago, a friend of mine as well as his girlfriend at the time decided to go to the local hot spots for "ghost" activity. There is a place affectionately called Bills Bench in the extreme south of town which is foothills and forest. As the legend goes, Bill was a homeless guy that would come to this bench and hang out to pass the time. When he passed away his ghost still from time to time is reported to have been seen sitting on his bench.
So anyway we drove up
Okay so in my main page I state that I have a bit of an obsession concerning things that go bump in the night. Hence why I like to visit this site as much as I do. Now I know there are quite a few people that come here (to U.M. in general) that are skeptic about a great many things. Now a strong dose of skepticism is very important when covering these subjects discussed here. I have noticed that often times people state that they don't believe in something and thus it does not exist... Fine
I wonder in all honesty if other people look at these? And if they do, what do they think about the people who write them? Are these a true glimpse through the window of our souls much like a window to the window of our eyes? Now I am not to terribly concerned about what people might be thinking about me while reading these. It's not like I am really handing out dollops of wisdom, or nuggets of joy. Hell, my Haiku blogs are there for the sole purpose of making them easier for me to find. I
