“Danger! Poetry!” by Richard F. Yates

Today—illness is upon me, which naturally made me think of POETRY! I am an admirer of the bardic arts, but I have a special place in my black-hole of a heart for the Dadaists—serial abusers of sound and meaning, whose experiments always amuse me. To help combat my sublime discomfort (head swirling gunkiness and all)Continue reading ““Danger! Poetry!” by Richard F. Yates”

“MUSEUM OF ABSURDITY AND TOO MUCH SUGAR 03”

And here, my dear reader, is my third “Exhibition” of artwork and weirdness, which I’m calling the MUSEUM OF ABSURDITY AND TOO MUCH SUGAR! Should you be curious about why I’m doing this or what it all means, you can check out a post I created for my Steemit blog where I give a B.S.Continue reading ““MUSEUM OF ABSURDITY AND TOO MUCH SUGAR 03””

“MUSEUM OF ABSURDITY AND TOO MUCH SUGAR 02”

Oh! So you came back, did ya??? Come to take another gander at the FREAKS!!! Well….I don’t blame ya! I love weird stuff, too! And thus, below, for your amusement, we have the NEXT exhibition of weirdo, punky, D.I.Y., unschooled, having-a-great-time, amateur art!!! [For more info on this entire project, check out the post onContinue reading ““MUSEUM OF ABSURDITY AND TOO MUCH SUGAR 02””

“MUSEUM OF ABSURDITY AND TOO MUCH SUGAR 01”

Art is for touching! Here’s some arts that I and my family have created over the last ten years or so. I’m happy with this junk, even if it ain’t “PERFECT.” Perfect is boring—I like messy! [For a full explanation of this project, check out my POST about it on my Steemit blog!] Museum ofContinue reading ““MUSEUM OF ABSURDITY AND TOO MUCH SUGAR 01””

“A Grandpa Plays MINECRAFT – Day 0004!” by Richard F. Yates

Hey folks, my family left me alone for a few minutes again last night, so I made another MINECRAFT video! In this one, I actually recorded an introduction for the video before the game play starts (why is the video taken with my phone better quality than the capture from my laptop???), so you canContinue reading ““A Grandpa Plays MINECRAFT – Day 0004!” by Richard F. Yates”

“Read a Damn Book – 161: The Land of Nod Treasury”

About I-don’t-know-how-many years ago (maybe 7 or 8???) we moved out of a house that I’d had stuff in since 1987. I lived there in high school, then after I got a fam-damily of my own, we BOUGHT the place from my dad, and we lived there for a long time, my wife and twoContinue reading ““Read a Damn Book – 161: The Land of Nod Treasury””

“I’m Seeing Rabbits!!!” by Richard F. Yates

A few nights ago, during my closing shift as a delivery driver, I was traveling down an ill lit stretch of road when I, momentarily, thought I saw a large (like golden retriever large) RABBIT run across the road in front of my car… Perhaps I was experiencing a bit of MICROSLEEP… It was almostContinue reading ““I’m Seeing Rabbits!!!” by Richard F. Yates”

“Read a Damn Book – 154: The Final Programme”

I’ve been sort of dreading this review, and the main reason for my apprehension is that I’m going to have to admit something that I rarely enjoy admitting: I don’t think I GET this book. It’s a novel, which is great, and it’s a science-fiction novel, which is also great. I love science fiction. GreatContinue reading ““Read a Damn Book – 154: The Final Programme””

“Very Very Very Short Stories (A Rehash)” by Richard F. Yates

About 150 years ago, I had something akin to writer’s block. It wasn’t your standard writer’s block, though, where I couldn’t get anything down on paper. This was a weird case in which I was CONSTANTLY writing, starting story after story, coming up with great characters, crazy plots, bizarre mysteries, horrifying monsters…but I’d never FINISHContinue reading ““Very Very Very Short Stories (A Rehash)” by Richard F. Yates”

“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”
