Forgive Time

  There are two things about being left after a very long relationship that people don’t tell you about. The first is that the pain you feel is actually physical, manifesting in the body somehow. The second is that to get rid of it, to become whole again, you actually have to not only get…

The Immersive Story of Sark Souls 3

May include spoilers, though I try to avoid them.       I’M A CASUAL GAMER. I have been since I got my first gaming console. It was a Sinclair Spectrum (48k!) And yeah, that might just have revealed my age to those of you old enough, or informed enough, to know what that is….

I’ve finally Killed Commendatore

Thoughts on KILLING COMMENDATORE by Murakami Last night I finished KILLING COMMENDATORE by Haruki Murakami. It’s only taken me a full year to finish it. Mind you it is almost 800 pages, but still I’m not that slow at reading. For some reason I liked reading it in the heat. I would take a bottle…

Book Recommendations

I spent today reading my own book. I was re-familiarising myself with the “new” novel, after having spent some time on the “old” novel. It was a pleasant experience, and though every page is scribbled with yellow “CHANGE THIS” ink, I felt that relief, that soft feeling in my heart that maybe writing this wasn’t just…

Time to dig out the Tome?

I woke up this Saturday morning thinking of my first novel. It’s a (as far as I can remember) a 190.000 word tome about an Icelandic woman who, in the process of moving back to Iceland, looses her name and the journey she needs to take to get it back sets her on a strange…

A “Filthy Casuals” Thoughts on the EASY vs HARD debate in games

The other night I watched both Smokaloke and ExcessiveProfanity on Twitch discuss what I believe is this article about difficulty in games especially related, of course, to From Software games and the latest Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. Then the morning after, over breakfast, I watched MANvsGAME discuss the same topic. Should games always have an easy…

Neon Colored Eternity (A Poem)

I see the light in your eyes, Remnants of neon colored insanity, The dance of infallible chemicals throwing a tantrum in your brain, Then fading out, Turning into nightmares Where beautiful amethysts hide inside a hollow rock, And clever white horned demons seduce you each night. Stale, stable and your conundrum hidden so well It…

An Evening Walk

20th of January 2019 (WordPress always fucks up my post so for better viewing click here!) It’s 2019 and though my world looks nothing like that of Blade Runner I still feel like I’ve stepped into the future, which I guess I did one minute at a time. I was recently in a local mall…

The Best Things About 2018

Click here to view entry with links! Friends of mine have been reminding me of the magic in the world this year. Through the year they have taken time to remind me that the world is almost as exciting as it was while we still had white areas on our maps and didn’t know if…

November issue of THE CHESTNUT

Today my father would have passed the 80 year old line had he lived. It’s hard to fathom him so old because in my mind he will stay 45 forever. It may seem a bit ironic that he will forever be stuck in the age I am at this moment in time in my mind but then…
