looping (mindless)
endless
turning
spinning
revolving
not
evolving
revolutions
more like that of a wheel
then of something
new
under the sun
glittering
shimmering
shattering
appearances
while meaning
remains
without seeming
startling
alarming
throttling
envelopes
that
are
unchanged
unchanged
unchanged
not
revolving
spinning
turning
endless
mindless (looping)

Brandonisms

"You can't come in here, I'm gravitating myself." [ This has something to do with hide-n-seek, and standing between the sewing machine and the wall, where I will never find him. ]

[ moves arms in slow, circular motions very similar to Bagua Zhuan Xuan Gong ] I like Bag-a-zhang!

~ ~ ~

[ periodic bursts of giggling, laughter, and other merriments ]

"Oh my!"

"Oh, my goodness!"

"Oh, goodness gwashious!"

[ all of the above while watching Tom and Jerry - it's hysterical watching him watch the cartoons! ]

Wednesday's Little Helper

Two Triple Quotes and two Double Quotes are still out there in the wild, going around unanswered. Since Wednesday's Little Helper is only loosely helpful, here are four more quotes that match up with the four movies in question - see if you can guess them, and then figure out which of those elder quotes are in the same movie!

"Well, ain't we a pair, Raggedy Man."

"Congratulations, madam. There's another town you've destroyed."

"I hope nobody here's superstitious. That's one big mirror we're about to break."

"Mocky-Lock is the boogeyman, Mocky-Lock wants me where I am!"

If you think you know any of them, head on over to the latest episode of Monday's Thirteen!

There's also a few Single Quotes that need answers, but those don't get any help... yet! =)

Full Moon Poetry

In honor of the second annual International Pixel-Stained Technopeasant day, and in the absence of any actual new work, I give you a short story that is only half-formed. It's a poor substitute for a finished product, but it will have to do. A rewrite on this has been in the works since pretty much the day after it was written. Although I received feedback from one person - and haven't implemented any of it yet - I would appreciate other impressions. The title remains a placeholder, sort of. There aren't any poems hiding out in the text.

Anywho, enjoy!




Full Moon Poetry

Have you ever noticed that sayings such as "As the crow flies" always seem to have a connotation that differs from what one would expect should they analyse it closely?

Take this saying and translate it to its intent, and what you really come up with is "In a straight-lined path" which is a great simplification of the actual path any bird might take betwixt point A and point B, should they ever arrive at point B in the first place.

So following the given advice, one would think taking side detours for a fragment of shiny or for a small taste of prime road-prepared raw flesh would be quite apropos. Travelling that straight and narrow path would, of course, give way to more important things such as evading or mobbing predators. If one was to travel as the crow flies, one simply must engage in all manner of minor excursions, of storytelling, of crops theft, and of other random mischief.
