World Recorder: A Science Fiction Short Story

“Grandfather! Look! It’s just awful!” Zarena exclaimed as she entered her Grandfather’s apartment. The door slid closed behind her. Her grandfather appeared from around the corner, his chair hovering exactly five inches off the floor. He protested loudly at using the chair full time, but his aged body left him little choice. His fully automated house monitored his blood pressure and other behaviormetrics and alerted the emergency services should anything unordinary arise. It was either…

Justice Peace

The day he walked into town was hot and dry. My eyes stung as I pitched hay to the horses, clouds of dust and chaff billowing up around me. A shadow fell across the door and I looked out into the street as he passed. He stood over six feet, thick muscles bulging and black as Satan. I dropped my pitchfork and stared after him along with all the old geezers in rocking chairs lining…

Chad Kichula is a Blue-Collar Man!

If Bruce Springsteen , Bob Dylan and Johnny Cash moved to Canada and combined all three of their DNA samples to create a love-child… his name would be Chad Kichula! Chad, a small-town, married with kids “average” guy from Canada, made his mark in the music scene back in 2009 with his hit song, Another Love, which he had to sell his truck for in order to create and pay the music bills. Now, after…

Philosophy the Present Clear Makeup: A Foundation Primer that Does More

philosophy (yes, that’s lower-cased) is a cosmetics company with a growing cult following that, admittedly, includes me. I’m hooked on philosophy’s delicious-smelling bath and body products, their outstanding mineral powder foundation, and several items from their skin care line. Committed to improving the look and feel of my sensitive, breakout-prone skin, I decided to toss my traditional liquid foundations and to try aiming for the “makeup-optional skin” that philosophy promises. Not being blessed with brilliant…

Hi-Point Compact 9mm Pistol Review

If I had to choose between my computer and my pistol, I would choose my pistol. Before purchasing my pistol, I really had to get permission from my wife and her concern was safety. We have three children which we would never want any harm to come to and of course we would not wish any harm to come to ourselves, so in our case, we demanded a pistol that was as reliable in both…

The Kidnapping of Our Innocence

The attempted kidnapping of my younger brother on our one lane country road took the innocence and security away that we did not know we had until it was lost. The beat up dirty white 1970’s Camaro drifted slowly on our bumpy road. Reuben, my younger brother, rode his bike like it was any other summer afternoon. Reuben noticed the white car in the distance. As the car neared our little corner, it made a…

Minimalism

Why do so many people (young ones, primarily) believe abstraction to be so artistic? Post-modernism embraced the idea of art from the artless. (If that makes any sense at all.) Now we close our eyes and scrawl blindly on newsprint or sticky yellow paper and someone says, “That came from inside me,” And I say, “I believe you. Something like that came from inside me too, only mine ended up in the toilet and I…

Mary Pfleuger’s First Love

Mary Pfleuger began gaining weight when she was eleven. The freckles and myopia set in a few months later, and she didn’t stop growing until she was seventeen, coming in at a cool five foot nine. Her skin was cracked and pale and her hair, a dull, mousy brown, did not cascade down her back, rather it plummeted in uncoordinated waves that seemed more unfortunate than feminine. Most of these things, she couldn’t help. Mary…

Though he=s young guy from rural Oklahoma, Will=s style leans more toward R & B or Rock than the typical southern country or rock-a-billy styles favored by so many of his contemporaries. He and his…
