Necrophilia Corpses – Set 1 (of 4) (NSFW)

The first pair of my necrophilia corpses is now complete. I haven’t given these guys names, yet. I think I might wait until the full set is complete before I decide which names to assign to which corpses. YouTube Tutorial By no means did I invent this method of corpsing. I learned this from Allen Hopps at Stiltbeast Studios. But Read More …

The Myth of the Swindling, Freeloading Poor

In a Facebook thread discussing charity and giving to the homeless, someone challenged me to explain how I can know that a panhandler isn’t pulling a scam by pretending to be poor or homeless in order to get easy money. Cogito, Ergo Sum If we get obnoxiously philosophical about it, who can truly know anything? There is no way for Read More …

Fortune Favors the Bold

The Two Bartlets Many people lead lives of contradiction, toeing a delicate line between what they want and what they are comfortable with.

I had the most amazing dream last night. Remy and I were living in a cave in the desert. It was dark and kept us cool during the day, and a fire would keep us warm at night. There was a long and winding path from the cave entrance to our den, so wind wasn’t really an issue. Deeper into Read More …

Grumpy Old Man Rant – Christmas Edition

Let’s be honest – the Grumpy Old Man Rant – Halloween Edition was very self-serving. Although I meant every single word I said, it was all about what I want and not giving a shit about anyone else’s opinion. But in the spirit of the holidays and this season of giving, this grumpy old man rant is intended to make your lives Read More …

Grumpy Old Man Rant – Halloween Edition

Even before I was a haunter, I was a horror fanatic. I have always held a special place in my heart (or in the void where my heart should be) for Halloween.
