Arrogant Powers Folly.

If I had picked up that last bottle of water the way I pick up girls, I wouldn’t be writing this through teeth that are clenched and grinding due to the pain in my chest! I am a powerful man because early in my college career I became a stereotypical “gym rat”. The sound of 45-pound plates rattling and […]

Basquiat & The So-Called Avant Guard!

Jean-Michel Basquiat is as legendary and popular an artist now as he was when he was at the top of the alternative art scene when he died of a heroin overdose!

Pain & Suffering.

Pain, grant me the fury to refuse that there is anything I cannot change, the endurance to change the things that make me furious, and the force of will to learn the lessons taught by things that hurt me! Suffering, grant me the indignation to refuse to concede that there is anything I cannot change, the […]

Filthy People Dirty Money.

Because I didn’t like the “molestation is not that bad” joke, I threw enough cash down to cover my coffee, left a sizable tip, looked at the waiter as I pointed to the cash, walked out, and never looked back. In what I didn’t know was the calm before the storm, one of my favorite […]

BitCoin’s Bloody Battle!

BitCoin Is A Whore, Stop Treating Her Like A Wife!

I’ve known people that are successful at hiding money spent on whores, money earned in secret companies, and entire alternative identities. All executed with the cold effectiveness of a CIA/MI6/Hezbollah triple agent! Yet when it comes to their BitCoin they turn into fools who are happy to spread their personal information all over the internet. I’m […]

A Session With Dr. Curtis Jasper!

Are Fists, Or Fanny For Sale?

I was covered in a slimy, warm, living caul that I greedily devoured, and happily excreted through my pen after being shat out by the beast of grammar and punctuation that I’ve sacrificed my time to! I went far too deep down the gullet of literature after I challenged myself to write a Six-Word Story, with […]

Poor people forge alliances based on race, religion, and location. Not poor people forge alliances based on education level and income, while constantly trying to increase/improve both.
