An Excerpt From My Life

As any of my frequent readers may know, I don’t post often about the intriguing splendor that is my life. (That sentence was also meant to be spoken with the nth degree of sarcasm).

In the terribly dull real world, my life is quite boring.

SO, for that reason, I’ve made it a point to write about it anytime something noteworthy happens.

Not that the first installment in this random series might be overly exciting, but I thought this excerpt from my life was relatively entertaining.

I’m not sure if I’ve ever mentioned, but I talk with my hands, a lot……..

Sometimes it’s for emphasis to reinforce my point, particularly when I am really getting into what I am saying, or a story I am telling. Continue reading

My New Year’s Resolutions

It’s that time of year again. The time of the year when people get this idea stuck in there heads, called a New Year’s Resolution. For some reason I could never quite grasp, the trend of declaring self-improvement, somehow makes a killing at the end of a calendar year.

Theoretically, declaring as such could work any day, from my point of view. I must be misunderstanding the meaningful significance of doing so on December 31st.

I guess though, if you are improving yourself, the date isn’t really important. It’s all about the dedication you have towards your goals.

Or that’s what it would be about, but most people never actually complete their resolution.

That is why this year, just for fun, I’ve made a list of achievable resolutions which I am going to work on: Continue reading

Similarities Between The FIFA World Cup and The Hunger Games: Random Observations I

I made an interesting observation yesterday.

The women’s FIFA World Cup is being held next summer in 2015. (It’s also being held in Canada).

As I was discussing this with a friend of mine, we were looking at the pools for the event. There are 24 teams and one potential winner. People all over the world will likely be watching, glued to their televisions.

After I had realised that, my only response was, “wow, this bears a striking resemblance to the Hunger Games.”

Food for thought….. food for thought.

Words That Are Usually Insults But I View As Compliments- with Guest Blogger, D.K. Phoenix

Salutations world, I’ve got an interesting post for today. I’ve recently begun communicating with my friend and long inactive blogger, D.K. Phoenix once more.

After an interesting conversation, we have concluded that both of us seem to be strangely complimented by words that are otherwise construed as insults by most people.

I thought this would make an interesting topic for a post, so enjoy as we both inject our redefinition of the English language into the blog-o-sphere. Continue reading

The Pop-Culture Poem

This is a censored version of one of my spoken word poems, intended for entertainment value only. (Also, completed with stage directions, which are italicized). Lines that are interchangeable are denoted with a *.

See how many references you can pick up.

****

Over 9000 words fight to the surface,
One does not simply stew about their nonsensical order,
I don’t always have writer’s block, but when I do, it’s a rather large pain in the posterior.
For some reason, I can’t let it go, no matter how hard I try.
This is very frustrating, and one of two things shall happen,

My annoyance will build until it explodes like Heisenberg’s false methamphetamine on Breaking Bad,
Or it will rain down adorable kittens from the sky in a wondrous burst of inspiration. (It’s raining cats and dogs quite literally).

Likely the former scenario, (because I’m not that lucky)
this dialogue will be exchanged with my friends,

Step to one side of stage with concerned facial expression and reassuring hand gesture.
“Dude eat a snickers.” Continue reading

Closer to the Heart

Daily Post asked:

-“You’re asked to recite a poem (or song lyrics) from memory — what’s the first one that comes to mind? Does it have a special meaning, or is there another reason it has stayed, intact, in your mind?”-

This is a story, of my first poetry reading:

-“I once sat going out of my mind,
my interesting fantasy worlds I’d find,
but it sucked I was broke,
I could hire no bloke,
so I could find no actors to sign.”-

These are the words to an older poem I wrote, The Reasons Why I Write (With Creative Answers).  It is posted here, if interested, http://mcscriptor.com/2014/06/10/the-reasons-why-i-write-creative-answers/

This poem, has always been of value to me; for it was the first spoken word poem I ever performed.

I had always held interest in written poetry, but it wasn’t until about a year or so ago, that I had taken an interest in spoken word.

I had watched countless poets on the internet, and had been to a  few poetry slams, just to simply observe. The talent was phenomenal, I assure you!

One night a few months back, I heard over social media, of an open mic poetry night at a local downtown café.

I had attended the event with one of my friends, whom, about an hour into the event, had talked me into finally, “getting my arse up on the stage” instead of merely observing from my chair

I hurriedly scribbled down in my notebook, one of the few poems of mine I had committed to memory.

I raised my hand during the last call rather enthusiastically, and strolled my way up to the stage.

I took hold of the microphone, or attempted to….. as unfortunately, the last poet had been very, very tall.

I called off to the side of the stage, “excuse me, could you please tell me how to adjust this thing? I am rather short.”

Continuing on, I knew that my stage ability likely lagged behind the ability of the previous poets. Did I feel compelled to hide that fact? I did not. In fact, I decided to let everyone know, exactly what catastrophic, walking tornado of words they were in for.

“Let the record show,” I began Continue reading

The World Will Be Inherited by Chimps

In my opinion, the world has become to reliant on modern-day conveniences, making us incapable of surviving once they are taken away. I think that if there is ever a global black out, we are likely gonna be in hot water, and the world will be inherited by Chimps.
