    Notre Dame Cathedral

    These are my thoughts on the Notre Dame Cathedral. I’m sorry if I offend anyone with this, but these are just my thoughts.

    …..

    My water is filled with bad chemicals which make me sick. I vomit. I cry. I try. Can you help me find better water? It is only a few thousand to build a better well. Can you help?

    NO, CHILD. WE need to spend billions on a new cathedral. The cathedral is important.

    Oh. Okay. Well, by brother is about to die because of some kind of di...  more

    Heading inside my head to drudge up a bit of writing, and using this for the shovel to get it started. Back in a few hours friends!

    I messed up and spent the morning reading comments under various new articles. I've decided today will be a good "Bukowski Mood" day in order to survive it.

    This is something I use to do on G when I was bored and feeling creative at the same time. GIVE ME A SUBJECT!! Sad, serious, funny, goofy, heart wrenching....whatever it may be, give me a subject to write a poem about tonight. It's still raining, and I have had a couple of drinks to get the ole brain oiled, but I can't seem to find a good subject tonight. Got anything for me? Anything you'd find interesting placed into a poem or prose or something like that?

    I know that there are some mistakes in there, and I apologize for that, I didn't know any lyric sites at the time when I made this.

    Current radar. Favorite kind of writing day.

    I like rainy days and a cloudy haze.
    I like Lucifer and his demon, Maze.
    On GTA, I like to race,
    and punching people in the face.
    I like the bar, but not the crowd.
    I like my music turned up too loud.
    I like to fish, especially for bass.
    I don't like my neighbor, for he's an ass.
    I like the country, and I like the city,
    but I want nothing to do with society.
    I love to drink coffee,
    and beer, and liquor, and wine.
    Sometimes I forget how to rhyme.
    Oh. And tacos...  more

    Good early Saturday morning, YouMe'ers! (Early for me, anyway. Not yet 7 a.m.) And you know what that means? Poetry! Most of my G friends knew if I was posting early early in the morning, it meant the poet inside my head was trying to get out, which meant several poems would be coming into the live stream throughout the day, rather good or bad. So...without farther delay...

    No, not that you. The other you.

    When I lost my G

    We all want a place to belong.
    Somewhere, somehow, someday.
    That one special place.
    A place where we can come together
    and be ourselves,
    and be around those
    who are also being themselves.

    Where do I belong?
    Where do you belong?
    Where do we belong?

    Maybe I am the Bojangles,
    who lost his shoes.
    Maybe I don’t have anything left to lose.
    Maybe I don’t have a clue.
    What to do?

    Where do I belong?
    Where is my song?
    Where has it gone?
    When is the new dawn...  more

    Good Friday (add what part of the day you're in, here) everyone. It's coffee time, for me. Here is my dark little corner of the world where I do a smidgen of writing when my mind cooperates, be sociable as much as possible, and (lets be honest here) spend way too much time playing computer games.

    Hey everyone. How are you all doing? Enjoying wintummering? That's what I call it this time of year. Yesterday was 92. Today is going to be 54 with a low in the mid 30s. Saturday is 100% chance of rain. By Monday, it should be back into the mid 70's.

    Wintummering.

    One thing I love to do, is research. Especially when it comes to making a visual statement to someone. A couple of weeks ago I got into an argument with a maga NRA nut about how unsafe immigrants and other races have made America SOOOO dangerous, and how badly we need the wall to keep out Mexicans and Muslims to make America safer. So I created this, and also gave him statistics from several different sources. (1 being from statistica dot com). The middle section between the two black lines...  more
