There are four Horsemen of the Apocalypse: War, Famine, Pestilence and Death.
There were four Marx Brothers: Groucho, Chico, Harpo and Zeppo.
But... there was a fifth Marx Brother, called Gummo. He appeared with the other Brothers on the stage, but stopped performing before they became international film stars. He ended up being a dress salesman, and then a showbiz agent. His role makes me wonder if perhaps there was a fifth, forgotten Horseman of the Apocalypse. Maybe he didn't make the grade. Maybe his heart just wasn't in it. Maybe he was Sloth. Or Boredom. Maybe he rode a pony, instead of a proper horse. Maybe he is Peter

Most people don't know this, but Peter is SO GAY.
And there's nothing wrong with that.

Know how sometimes you feel like you forgot something? Or, maybe it's more like somethings missing but you can't quite put your finger on it? That was my life before I met Peter. Since befriending Peter I've never felt so healthy and fit. I can wholeheartedly say that if I never would have met Peter I would probably be dead right now. Just being around Peter washes your soul with sweetness and light. His life is an inspiration and his mind a pandora's box of goodness! I'm not sure if the world knows how lucky it is to have Peter in it's midsts, but I'm sure after I set my devious appocolyptic plan into action the world will go crying to Peter to save the day. Only what Peter doesn't know is that I've cleverly discovered his one true weakness....

Peter is an anomaly not to be understood by feeble human minds!
You can only wish to be half as cool as him and you know it.

i hope peter approves this testimonial and chooses to display it on his page. at this stage of the game, i'm just trying to make my name known, show people what it looks like when the letters are arranged in the way i had arranged them to spell what they do. what i want to say about peter is probably the most important thing that will be said about him, so it's important that i say it. basically, peter has a great sense of things. he can see a thing when he sees one, and he often not only sees a thing, but he looks at it, thereby obtaining a real good view of it. i've known him not to shy away from things so much as to even obtain tactile senses of some of them. he does so by proddining, a technique quite unique and accomplished, so much so as to warrant a lot of things to happen in due time. it's interesting and often quite captivating to observe him masterfully check a thing out & up, feel it around & out, poke, prod, prospect, query, quiz, scrutinize, search, sift, study, test, and verify it. sometimes he uses a special device that he hides in his pocket. fucking amazing.

Today my first work of fiction to be published has been published. ON THE INTERNET!
There are typos, and a missing word, and I'm an idiot for sending it in like that, and they didn't give me any warning or time to edit my haste so there it is in all its glory. If you would like to read this short work of flash fiction go to
It's called "Data Entry"

I had this thing on my back. A bump. There was a brief time when I thought, "It must be a tumor." But then I learned about the body's weird malfunctions, how sometimes glands don't work properly and fluids build up under your skin.
The bump appeared years ago. And by years ago I don't mean a couple of years, I mean over 10 years. It was a 10 year old bump. I had stopped thinking about the bump. Every once in a while I'd run my hand over it and wonder what its plans were. If it was g...

Started writing a story that is open-ended on both ends of it. I can write more for the front end, and more for the back end. I can go either direction. The characters are good, so far, and it has potential for development. Like the idea can be stretched out into something more lengthy, with full development of characters and a complete plot.
Don't ask me what I'm going to do yet. I don't know. Like I said, I can go either way, but I like these people, and I think they have depth. That depth...

A subway tunnel is a unique space. An underground corridor, built for continual occupancy in transit, made to last through wear and tear, years, underground. The walls are tiled, covered with billboards pointing out the newest film, or coaxing you to eat a different pill for your condition. I walk through these tunnels with an enjoyment that is probably not shared by many. It is the ultimate in between place. The only occupants not temporary, are making use of the high traffic to beg wi...

Walking down the concrete sidewalk, surrounded by brick and concrete walls, sun blazing around me reflected heat bouncing into my face. Birds are chirping, making their usual racket. Industrial semi-desolation is the mise en scene, and despite that there are people out taking in their weekends. While walking home I realized I'm in love. Not the sort of love that you grow up with, the kind that comes about as an understanding of faults and accepting of the way things are because I can't ch...
Description and prescription can be a similar thing, this is currently the case.

"It is what it is, not what you wanted it to be"
Amazing film. I find the complaints regarding how the film was marketed to be mystifying. It's like they went to the movie and instead of seeing the wonderful movie in front of them they saw a movie that wasn't the movie they'd created in their ...

But then this listing would need to be marked "Mature"

A coffee Shop
( local favorites » restaurants )
I find the best place to get a cappucino is a local coffee shop. They steam the milk for you. And then they measure it out into a cup and top it off with foam. Sometimes they do swirly patterns in the foam. That's cool.
You should try a cof...

"Joe is great!"
I sat down with this guy one saturday. He had his energy drink nearby. His hand rested on his mouse. His other hand fidgeted around, on his keyboard, then scratching his head, then resting on his chin, and finally back to the keyboard.

"Life isn't just about leisure"
I have trouble deciding which set of bars in my life have been my favorite ones. It could have been those bars on the little cell my parents kept me in when I was a child. Or maybe those bars I saw the back of after I finished my parents in a bl...
