January 22, 2018

Genre:  Horror Publisher:  Samhain Published: 1985 Reviewer Rating:  4.5 Reviewer:  Michael D. Griffiths       Obsession by Ramsey Campbell is almost a mystery as much as a Horror novel, but it is certainly the latter with a sharp bullet.

WildernessPunk ShitIdiot

October 20, 2017

I invented a new word. Shitidiot. Kind of has a nice ring to it, don’t you think? I swear I wasn’t inspired by Trump, okay, perhaps a little. But this word isn’t about him. Think on it. There are two major categories of people you might not want to hang out with. Evil people and […]

Four Questions   I heard you got divorced, how is that going?   So, yeah, I’m divorced. But here’s the thing, I went ahead and figured I should stay single for a while, because no woman wants to be the bounce back gal. So, I keep telling them, “No baby, you’re not the bounce back […]

WildernessPunk Reciprocity

October 2, 2017

Reciprocity. Trade. Barter. Rare for one to hear someone talking the concept down. Quite the opposite, most people you meet give it lip service as something they seek to do at the very least. Perhaps, you might have a more lawful friend who reminds you some activities should be claimed on your taxes…blah, blah, yawn. […]
