The Soul Patch (the look)
















So what if I have a soul patch.
I'm not about to take over the world....or am I?
(evil laugh ensues)

A throwback to another time, another decade.
(another place where we feel like we belong)

So this is the look you have personally chosen?
(yes, yes it is)

No time to write....any more w

Swamp Thing (DC Universe)
















Okay, so the only reason that I signed up for the DC Universe is because of the new Swamp Thing television series.  From the looks of the official trailer it seems like it should be well worth watching.

Welcome (New Poem)









No memory but of this.
No memory except this moment.

The New Pet Sematary Movie (Looks Creepy Good)















Although I haven't read the Stephen King book Pet Sematary (yet) the new movie looks damn good.  Can't wait to see it.

Cold Hands (New Poem)
















Warm up these cold hands 
they feel like bitter death.
Small town.
Full of hope.
Always working.
Mid-night movies.
Dreams too many to count.
Alone?
No, not alone.
Together we are. 

A Few Words (New Poem)











A poet speaks.
A poet smiles....sometimes.
A poet takes it all in and breathes out words.
The words can make you laugh, cry, and dream of things bigger than ourselves.
Anybody can write down a few words and call it a poem but does that make them a poet?  That my friend, is up to you to decide.

Coca-Cola in glass bottles.

Warm Wishes And Cold Fishes (New Poem)












I don't remember going to bed last night but 
I do remember waking up on this cold,cold morning.
Damn this cold weather, damn it all.
Warm wishes and cold fishes.
(What the hell does that even mean?)
So back to the beginning it seems. 
A new year is right in front of us.
Forget about last year.
It is done and gone.
Not to be seen ever again.
Goodbye....Adios Amigos.

The Chef Boyardee Diaries

















Have you tried the "Throwback" ravioli from Chef Boyardee?  

Holy Cow!  

I like it so much better than the current beef ravioli.  I'm not sure if it's the spices in it or if it's something else but if I see it again at the store I will 100 % pick up it up.  It's that good.  (This is the first post known as "The Chef Boyardee Diaries)    

The Sushi Chronicles










Just a few weeks ago for the first time I tried the sushi at believe it or not....Martin's.  And yes, it was good, great, amazing.  So a few days later I went back to Martin's and picked up a few more containers of sushi.  My ten year old daughter tried some and she liked it as well.  So from now on if we're craving for some sushi we now know where to go....Martin's.  (This is the first post known as "The Sushi Chronicles").
