The Invasion of Evans Head






(Yes, these are all actual people that live in my town, and I'm using their real names. And yes, there is actually a guy named Pencil. He owns the pub.)  The play starts after the jump!

Anger Getting The Better of Me (And Why I Hate It When It Happens)

Usually, with this blog, I try my best to be funny. For those unfortunate few that have to suffer through my attempts at humour, it's probably a little disconcerting that I classify that drivel as 'comedy'. And I gotta be honest: I'm just gonna rant. it won't be productive, you won't learn anything, and it'll probably ruin your day. In short, it's everything writing shouldn't be. But I'm still typing, so let's see where this idiocy goes...

More From Me @ The Tao of Scoot

There's another post up at The Tao of Scoot ( concerning my obsession with taking thousands of screen shots of any games I play using MAME or SNES emulators. If there's a game you can think of, no matter how obscure, I guarantee I have at least twenty screen caps of it. So if you ever need pics of a game for an article or whatever, let me know and I'll zip 'em and ship 'em.

Deepest, Darkest Secrets Revealed!

In the early days of the internet, confession websites were pretty popular due to the fact that people felt more comfortable sharing their darkest secrets because nobody knew that their IP addressess could be traced, etc. and I developed a hobby of compiling the best ones I could find. I'd completely forgotten I had these until last night, when I was going through some old data CD's I had and I rediscovered them, so I thought you guys might wanna have a look at 'em. Be warned though; there is some FUCKED UP SHIT here.

(Just a quick note: All these were taken from the site I mention this because I don't want people to be all "Naw, dude's just bullshittin' and this is all stuff the sick fuck made up himself!" so I've provided the link so you can see for your self. Be warned though, over the last few years it's turned into less of a confessions website and more of a "Oh Girl in My Biolgy Class, why don't you know I exist? I've loved you for so long and you won't even look at me. I cut myself every night thinking of you!" -type of place. Anyway, I sifted through and found the hardcore shit just for you, so follow me after the jump!)

Success! I'm now a semi-professional writer!

Pardon the hubris, but I'm so stoked that someone thought my writing was good enough to pay for that I think I deserve to brag a little; and even though I live in Australia, it was actually an American humor website that thought my work was worthy. The reason that's such a big deal for me is that American comedy websites are the Mecca of humorists worldwide, so to be able to go from home-made blog to doing a freelance piece for a reputable website that gets around 200,000 hits a day is just ... I really cannot put into words just how happy that makes me.
Anyway, here's the link to the article, entitled 'Bad Decisions: Doing All Things Crazy and Illegal - So You Don't Have To! '

Finally, I want to give a big shout-out to Luis Prada, because if it weren't for him, none of this would have happened. Thank you bro.
Alright, enough of the sentimental stuff, click on the link above and get laughing!

My God... Just... My God

I'm covered in sweat, tears, and probably more drool than you'd think after seeing 'Literally Captioned New Yorker Cartoons'. ( Something about the concept, and the solid execution, tickles me in all the right places.

Love, and what it really is.

The death and rebirth of time; the end of an old year, the beginning of a new one, brings out the sentimentalist in me.

I realize that love is, to me, having no money but caring for someone so much you are compelled to share with them your last cigarette, your last piece of pizza, your last beer, all for the benifit of shared and sometimes impared decision-making, and making all the wrong choices and walking all the wrong alleyways in order to make memories that last forever.

A belated, and happy, new year to you all.
