Giants of the North

A dark power is sweeping across the land.
Our lone hero hears of a strange disturbance in the forests, and travels north to lend aid.
What he finds there is more than he can comprehend, but is it all as it seems?

A new tale of adventure and magic, told in verse. If you’re intrigued, the e-book version is available for free download, for a limited time (See end of post).

Shuffle music on a USB

Download or create your own USB music shuffler.

You’re hosting a party, and Spotify is repeating the same 5 songs over and over with too many ads, so you fill up an old USB stick with songs from a hard drive. To keep everything easy, you plug it directly into your speaker. (This also stops those pesky party goers who like to play DJ, so you never hear more than 30 seconds of each song as they constantly flick through.) Everything is working fine, except after a few songs you realize that the songs are playing in alphabetical order. That Elvis Presley CD that you ripped lists its songs as ‘Track01’, ‘Track02’, ‘Track03’, etc. and you are getting an Elvis overload all in one go!

Never fear, the USB song shuffler is here!… Continue reading “Shuffle music on a USB”

Shadow Creatures

Through blackened mist
and sodden earth,
The crows above shall sing.
In tune with bones
And creaking lids-
Open, the coffins spring. Continue reading “Shadow Creatures”

Statue and Stone

The graveyard of ten thousand stones-
A maze to match the sky-
Was riddled with the blackened bones
Of centuries gone by.
The stones did reach to realms of dreams
As vines then grew in cracking seams,
But never, knew they why. Continue reading “Statue and Stone”

New Recruit

The lane, illuminated by the only flicking light
That holds at bay the dim in such a way no others might,
By day does watch commuters, in a blur, pass blindly through-
But only those worth noting are the ones that pass by night.

Fontana Rossa

And In my wake, a stream obscene
Does stain the pavement ‘neath my shoes,
Like Neptune drowning Travertine-
From whence it flows I have no clues.

Machine of Flesh

A wretched man
Atop grey walls,
Inside a hollowed room.
With holes in roof
The flooding rain
Hides views of tombstone bloom.

Jungle Yard

Passing through the glass, we moved
And watched through glorious eyes.
To see the beast in midst of feast
He cared not for us spies.

And once complete he looked our way
A grin from ear to ear,
Caught on the breeze he pounced at trees
To see our faces fear.
