Finding Ferly

I don't know what I want to do with my corner of this blog site! I had some grandiose idea of a multisectional story that would go on for months and have a clever ending but I'm not feeling inspired any more. I want the words to flow from my imagination and out my fingertips onto the seemingly enormous white spaceRead more

Perspective: What is it?

Did you guys read about that thing? Or did you see that news piece about that guy? You did? Then it is about due time I get my soapbox and preach. Sorry. René Margritte. Does that name mean anything to you? If it does and you know where this is going, you can skip my sermon altogether. If not, thenRead more

Grasshoppers

Grasshoppers are one of nature's tiny miracles. They spend their little lives hopping around sun kissed meadows, bringing joy to all that hear them. In my youth I spent many happy hours tracking them down, just to marvel at their little insecty forms. And how can anyone fail to love any creature that befriends and helps a delightful cartoon marionette?Read more

Online – Offline

Last week I was at a friends birthday party, I met their nieces and nephews who I had seen on Facebook before but some of them never in real life. I realised the world has changed significantly in the last 20 years. I have seen some of these kids grow up online, baby pictures, first steps, first bike, first schoolRead more

I Think I’m Broken

The title says it all.  I can only assume that there is something wrong with my brain.  With the way I think.  Cos, a lot of the time, I just don’t get it. I watch stuff on TV, I read stuff in books or on the interweb (I completely avoid the papers), listen to stuff on the radio.  And thenRead more

Everything is awry as usual – A dangerous sociopath to go down…

Well for this weeks lesson kids, it will be about the obsession to influence other peoples lives for the benefit of a mild internet erection. One of the new waves that is slowly growing on the internet is putting your lives out on the internet. That is far from new, but this time with a small and potentially dangerous twist.Read more

Evan Broch

Evan Broch’s awkward teen years still hadn’t passed by the time he was 21. He never excelled in school so he never considered any sort of higher education. He manage to land several jobs but never held onto them for long, though generally through no fault of his own. The young Mr. Broch always just seemed to be in theRead more

Chapter 07: Brawn and Brains in Bruck

Ron looked terrified at June. He did not have to say a word though. June nodded anxiously and got up. She stopped in front of the hotel room door and a knock louder than before almost scared her. Ron walked to the balcony door at the back of the hotel room. He could see June straight ahead of him atRead more

Can I kick it?

… Well, if you really want to.   I apologise in advance.  This is the second tech/game head post in much less time than I would have liked.  But what can I say…  I need more material.  Um… no.  I mean, it is something that has come to my attention recently.  Yeah, that sounds better. If you (or your kids/friends)Read more

Everything is awry as usual – Whisper sweet nothing in my ear

This time I am going to talk about something a little strange, but not that new to me. The short back story would be that I live alone in an apartment and tend to hear noises from my neighbors now and again. This will at times make me a bit jumpy and a light sleeper. For that I have turnedRead more

The spirit of Euromaidan – Дух Euromaidan

There aren’t a lot of revolutions anymore, and certainly none in my neck of the woods. I was old enough to realise the importance of the fall of the Wall. I remember watching every bit of news we could get on the telly, and checking the teletext every morning to see if there was anything new and exciting. I’d grown upRead more

Produx #2: Shelter

So being tired of the usual comercial and industrialised music that is pumped through the radio I encouraged myself to write a piece of music that would at least attempt to embody the essence of something that is ultimately beautiful and good in this world through simple melodies and one day, and I am not saying it is today, I might get good at it and make something is would be considered good by the general public. Someday. Maybe?
