“Leap (Plus Banter)” by Richard F. Yates

So!!!! Today is Monday, 5th August, 2019—and I’m making this DAY ONE of my PRODUCTIVITY PLAN. I’ve been…SLOTHFUL…as of late, but I’m done being slug-like and instead going to be much more erratic and buzzy, like a drunken hornet with tons of energy and only a vague sense of direction. (I think this will payContinue reading ““Leap (Plus Banter)” by Richard F. Yates”

“Read a Damn Book – 152: Cinderalla”

I’ve been feeling overwhelmed lately with too many big projects and lots of “going” and “doing.” (I’m a bit of a homebody.) So, to help counteract all my PROJECT ANXIETY, I thought I’d read something quick and fun and entertaining… Why, how about this lovely, little manga title based on a classic fairy tale. ThatContinue reading ““Read a Damn Book – 152: Cinderalla””

“No Exit” by Richard F. Yates

This is a digitally modified photo I took, recently, (at the Cowlitz County Fair) of a “dark ride” (which seemed to have some minor rollercoaster elements to it.) I didn’t catch the NAME of the ride, but I loved the blacklight effects and the “horror show” aesthetic. Unfortunately, I didn’t TRY the ride, but itContinue reading ““No Exit” by Richard F. Yates”

“NON-COM-ARTS (A Community for That OTHER Kind of Art)” by Richard F. Yates

[I originally posted this on my Steemit.com blog on the 10th of July, 2019. It was the initial SEED from which this project has sprouted. The concept came from the relatively recent invention of TOKENS and COMMUNITIES based on the Steem Engine, a THING that let’s people create new crypto-currency tokens on the STEEM blockchain.Continue reading ““NON-COM-ARTS (A Community for That OTHER Kind of Art)” by Richard F. Yates”

Who? What? When? Where? Why???

I’ve been around the block. I’ve seen the ugly places. The burnt out shacks in the alleys. The overturned dumpsters. The forgotten gardens and ivy-covered fences and rusting cars on blocks behind the garage. These things ain’t always pretty… (Symbols rarely are…) There is something SICK going on—several somethings: racism, greed, ignorance, intolerance, bigotry, homophobia,Continue reading “Who? What? When? Where? Why???”
