It was so long ago, yet because I have relived that day so often, it is only yesterday. A friend of mine knew I was looking for work and offered me a position with his small video production company. It paid gas plus commission and I was going to be trained by the best salesperson... Continue Reading →

It has been nearly 15 years since I almost died. I wish I could say that surviving was a good thing and each new day a blessing. If anything, each day has been a living hell. I think it would have been better if, all those years ago, I did not survive. Before that time,... Continue Reading →
The Internet saw the light of day on January 1st, 1983 when ARPANET espoused TCP/IP. It became the “all-network” and today’s Internet. It brought with it unlimited possibilities as it grew — one of them, a competition to the traditional entertainment.
Just like many fields in entertainment, whether it is art, music, acting, or even writing, education can now be through the Internet. I took both traditional “going to school” art classes and online. It cost a fraction of the price, and I’ve learned more from workshops than I ever did by sitting in a class. Don’t let a building fool you when it comes to entertainment. Why? Because talent speaks for you. Your portfolio is your resume.
Art is subjective, all forms, including LITERATURE. It is not because you have a bachelor’s degree in creative writing that you are the next Stephen King. Just like it…

Sometimes we must embrace the darkness to see the light. Unique steamy, salacious stories. Carnal tales of passion, lust and sex. These novellas combine erotica with awareness, fusing strong feminine sexuality with female empowerment. These may very well be some of the most controversial stories of all time.

Indigo & Violet
Violet Jones stood scowling backstage in their dressing room. Her arms were folded tightly under her breasts. She refused to look at her husband, Indigo. “Baby, I know you’re mad,” he said, softly, “but can we talk about this after the show? They’re waiting for us, and the preceding act is nearly done.”
“I know,” she huffed, “but I’m even too upset to perform. What the hell’s the matter with you, loaning one of our best cumulus cloud chairs to your sister without discussing it with me first? It was a wedding present!”
“I’m sorry,” Indigo said, putting his hands on Violet’s shoulders from behind, “I truly am. Yes, I should have talked to you first, but Blue is family and she needed one. Hers turned cirrus; wispy. We have others. I figured we could spare one.”

...Game of Thrones? I just saw a news report and have seen quite a few blogposts. I have no idea what they are talking about.

Facebook may very well the beginning of the end of civilization. People log on to discuss everything from what foods they have eaten, to what obstacles they have overcome, to how often they have gone to the bathroom. People there project an image of a fantastical life they want you to believe they live; often... Continue Reading →

I spent much of my younger years as a vagabond, it is the life to which my very soul was drawn. While not looking. I found someone. That person claimed a desire to move with me.

“Universal law is for lackeys. Context is for Kings,” is a quote from Star Trek Discovery. It was said by one of my favorite Star Trek characters of all time despite its short live glory in the show, Captain Gabriel Lorca. It is an understatement to say it inspired my entire sci-fi series.
One Quote Is One Series
When the news of Star Trek Discovery hitting the small screen spread, I jumped on the occasion to be its reviewer for The Geek Initiative. Glued to my television every Thursday, I needed to see what would happen next. Of course, many thought the show to be too different than its predecessors and violated what it represented.
I watched it with an opened mind. I do understand why many trekkers disliked it just as well as I understood why it attracted newer and younger viewers. The look in itself was above…
