    There is always time for another project, another attempt. Business is business. This is a very impressive idea, and I have to say we are excited by it, but we would like to think on it for some time. Let’s meet again at another venture, when the resources are there to fund it we can come back to this one. I feel that at this point in this venture…[Read more]

  • It is a reminder that everything about our lives is a temporary state. There is nothing that is more to the point when we see the abandoned shack on the side of country roads, falling apart and rotting, but new sprouts are budding on the inside of its once solid frame.

  • I am not lonely when I am alone. In fact is something that I need for the creation that is in my mind. I need the quit. I need to be on my own and working as I go. I do spend time with those I love. Yet they know, that sometimes it is very nice to be alone.

  • The feeling of home is interesting. It is the combination of incense, the food, soft furniture, smiling faces, listening ears, lifetime of memories and the inevitable feeling of dislike and dread of staying more than a few days.

  • makes us feel safe, but that means that we are watched, we restrict ourselves. we put bars on our windows and we did no crime. we put them there to keep them out. But we also keep ourselves in. The insanity is not always apparent.

    An asylum should be a place of peace. A den away from the storm of the outside world. But, it was not so. Torture, humiliation, and utter disregard for the human being happened there. That is why the word contains such horrifying weight

    Squintting compresses the light slightly, helps to narrow ones focus. But the disadvantage is that it closes ones peripheral vision. That is why Morris always gave something to read to his dangerous victims, a small letter book with tiny writing.

  • River Ranter commented on the post, mirage 5 years, 5 months ago

    Something that seems to be true, can feel like it is solid and real, with a moments notice, can dissolve into nothing. All it takes is pulling the right strings of the fabric that we have called reality and let it all unravel. Then we can enjoy the horror in the faces of those who have crossed us.

  • A priest, a good priest that is, knows that dogma is a window dressing. What is really important to his or her flock is that they understand the words behind the stories, the meaning. To a religion with political gain, dogma is everything.

  • To stand together for change, for rights, or any deal is brave. Especially sine the governments often have only one response. When people with signs meet soldiers with guns, only death and martyrdom follow.

  • The sundried tomatoes were the perfect finish to an already delicious pizza. It was both a food and visual piece of art.

  • River Ranter commented on the post, based 5 years, 7 months ago

    They say that they need proof to base my assumptions. I laugh at this of course. They allow the Christians, Jews, and Muslims to have their faith based on old books, written forever ago. But my vision of the great Spaghetti and Meatball God is scoffed at.

  • River Ranter commented on the post, delve 5 years, 7 months ago

    Come with me. Let’s see how far this rabbit hole goes. I promise it will be fun, and you will see wonders beyond your imagination. Now after you have taken this first step, I should inform you that there is no turning back. Welcome and enjoy being trapped.

    the squeezing pressure is slowly in increased with ever twist of the robotically operated handle, crushing the hand ever so slightly. The bones start to crack and blood bursts from crushed vessels. Do not operate alone the sign said, the last thought I had before fainting from the pain.

  • It was the words and meaning that had me at completely. “Beer is best in good company”, he said. “That… that was … beautiful… that is.” I slurred back.

  • River Ranter commented on the post, rally 5 years, 7 months ago

    They showed up in thousands, demanding justice and retribution. The people yelled with foaming mouths and sun parched voices. Freedom is what they asked for. The simple ability to choose a government and complain about its decisions over a drink, without fear of retribution. The government responded to the cries with bullets.

  • River Ranter commented on the post, vapor 5 years, 7 months ago

    The smell filled the room. The misty waves floated amongst the inhabitants, touching their clothes and filling their noses. It embraced them in the small confines of the moving glass and steel, as this moving room brought its passengers higher and higher. Then the question was asked, the one question to finish the sacred ritual. “Who farted?”

  • River Ranter commented on the post, stapled 5 years, 8 months ago

    It isn’t the cleanest way to close a wound, nor would i ever recommend it to anyone. However, when a patient has to be help down as they attempt to attack every one in the room, stapling is some times to only way to close the wound shut.

    It was the way the light caught his head from behind. It was as if he were a saint or a god. But that was ridiculous, people didn’t glow… at least not the people Robert drank with on a regular basis. This, however, was not a regular night.

  • River Ranter commented on the post, gamer 5 years, 8 months ago

    the embarrassed cringe at the word gamer. They see a closet bound Gollum, pale skinned and starving on a diet of cheesy puffs, who has the social skills of a puking armadillo. I see someone who has embraced a new medium of stimulation and fun.
