It's the buzz you get out of Life that raises the Bar. riginal.
Bars,temporarily they lift our spirits. They spirit our lifts when exercising. I once tried to lift a barbell to the musicationary sounds of 'Rocky.' Failed.Fell in a heap. The bar owner removed the bar bell,installed a buzzer. Hence the need to ask a patron would he or she like a "light or heavy beer" was negated. Let me explain. A friend of mine in dire straights, who ran a rundown bar in his native town of 'Disgusting' just past New York proper got so desperate he used to ask a drinker "would you like a light or heavy...

When an author of fiction sits down to pen a novel, they have a fairly decent idea of what their story is about. They have characters in mind, places envisioned, a general idea of the plot which can make or break their efforts.
Many, like me, write from the gut and develop the book as inspiration hits while typing. Not so easy, as oftentimes this can become a very time-consuming endeavor. Others, like mega-author, John Grisham strictly believe in formatting an outline first then placing the story on paper; specifically seeing the story from beginning to end and then crafting a readable...

MONKEY SEE MONKEY 'DILL' DO? riginal.
Read with much interest Martha Tandori's piece about the propensity of viewers' appetites' to be whet or injected with an ever increasing lust for violence seemingly way past the "bang bang you're daid partner" scenario. Nice work. Not in any way shape or form deriding any writer of any genre from pursuing their particular route of writing.However bizarre or horrific their books etc may be. Be it for fame,fortune, or for personal fulfillment it's not for me to judge. And if i were to, by today's literary critique and "anything goes" standards i could... Read More
THE TARANTULA. riginal.
FACT: The female tarantula's virginity returns to her after intercourse. The male can be eaten during this process. Beats lighting up a ciggie or making a cup of coffee...or scanning the WEB for a good place to dine. De-ja-vu? Why eat out when you can eat in/or your hubby. I would imagine a lot of males would settle for an embrace and a good book as opposed to a good bonk. I mean handcuffs would be an expensive no-no. Fangs you very much. During the 'life cycle of the Tarantula' doco and its peculiar habits i dozed off.
A beautiful Japanese woman was bored... Read More
OLLEY THE LONELY SNAIL. RIGINAL.
Dunce upon a lime there was born a deformed snail. Some of the more learned snails thought that Olley was born without a shell because of the acidic nature of his birthing. You see Olley's mum (a former lime dancer and devout Billy Ray Cyrus fan) was heavily pregnant and dancing frenetically on the lime when her slime broke. The nearest snail birthing clinic was a metre away,too late. It was a difficult birth compounded by the fact that even though parasnails attended the birth the action of dragging the snail stretcher up the side of the lime flipped... Read More
The big Texas lawman swung down wearily, hitched the straining thirsty horse to the crude trough outside the shabby dirt farmer's shack. An involuntary twitch in the animal's leg as it gulped the water with relief. The lawman untied the bag containing the injured gasping fighting cock. A startled young boy appeared with a lantern. He shrieked as he pulled the bloodied bird out of the proffered bag. His petite pretty mother waved her arms in unison with the swinging lantern as the dim light reflected off the gold chain fused clumsily to the worn gold pendant in the Texan's other hand. "Manuel?"... Read More
The gloominess of the end of another season of Indian Idol Junior was quelled significantly with the announcement of the launch of the Indian Idol Academy, last Sunday, as the show ended.

The Indian Idol Academy is a collaborative initiative between FremantleMedia, 19 Entertainment (a division of Core Media Group)and KarmYog Media & Arts Education Network (KY-MEDIA).
