The big D

rop caps are delightful, and so is collaboration. Tonight’s post is all about collaborative work on the internet, or what might be called omnilaboration, since ‘co’ is two, and the internet is a giant wad of artistic and creative types. I got this opportunity from Jake Gest, who won the right to establish the subject […]

A still more glorious dawn

Just saw my favorite YouTube video of all time, and have to share it. I’m one of those guys who has very high hopes for the human race, and believe, along with Norman Cousins and others, that our race is still in its infancy, and the future holds strange and wonderful glories undreamt of by […]

The story of Story

Once upon a time there was a little mouse. Her name was Story. Which wasn’t her real name of course (that was Agatha). Since who ever heard of a name like Story? But everybody called her Story because she never told the truth, at least not the truth like mouse-folks was used to hearing it. […]

Frogs

The frog sat on the log in the bog like an amphibious hog, oinking frogways. I love frogs. Never ate one, but I bet if I ate a frog I’d like that too. Not that many things in this world I don’t like eating. But let’s put eating aside for a moment, after I finish […]

The beginning

In my dreams I told my dream teacher I’d never talk about my dreams in a blog. So, since I’m all about lies within lies within lies within truth, I’ll do it anyway. Anybody who hates listening to dreams, you can leave now. Last night I had a dream. I was at some sort of […]

The Golden Rule

So what’s up with the Golden Rule? I think it sucks. If I followed the Golden Rule I’d be in jail right now. Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. Pfft. Like even. If I did unto others the way I wish they did things to me, everybody would hate me. […]

Of mice and mice

I’m a mouse guy, I admit it. Always been, always will. Grew up singing “Here I come to save the day!” Mighty Mouse was always on the way in my imagination, and he’s still nibbling away down there, trying to poke his way into reality. Not sure I ever saved any days, but I sang […]

The Shadow

I keep getting this sneaking suspicion that bad is good. May be that’s easy to say from the relative isolation of high atop my rusty tower here in the mutant forest, but it seems true. So much good comes from bad that how can bad be bad? Of course too much bad is not a […]

Four a.m. and all’s well

Man it smells good outside. Not often in Colorado can you step outdoors at four in the morning after an all-day rain yesterday and smell it. Look up and it’s still overcast. Cool, autumny feeling, puddles. No people around being stinky. Pretty darn sweet. And silent as a snoozing turtle. Insomnia has never been one […]

Once upon a time

Once upon a time there was a little girl. She was the most precious and beloved little girl in the whole wide world. People loved her more than anything. Circus bears would laugh to see her wave. The bumblebees buzzed for her. The moon giggled at her passing in the early eve. Sad old men […]

The Legend of Jimmy Gollihue

Read this tale once. Long ago, in the misty mists of time. Last night if I recall rightly, and part of today. Called The Legend of Jimmy Gollihue. Don’t sound like much, I know. Legend, ha. Well, come to find out it is a legend, a true one, as true as magical realism can get – […]
