Water Me in Silence
// Within me are dead petals from the sunflowers I was born with. They are as dry as the tears I've cried and as empty as my soul. There is a permanent sunset inside me, one that lays upon the pacific and settles on the golden sand. I am but a wave, consuming every last bit of this world and spitting it all out as I crash. There is a glow that comes and goes, and as it leaves so does my longing to be. But when it returns, oh baby, it glows brighter than any star ever could. There is a love that is inside of me. This love radiates through every emotion. It is a love that is pulled from deep, deep inside and sprinkled upon the soul of each passing stranger with a story. There is a love inside of me. Be gentle when you're inside me, there is a love inside me. //
Thanksgiving Movie Recommendations
The Holiday season is upon us! The weather is getting colder, the leaves are falling and those pesky insects die off for the season. The first major holiday coming up is of course Thanksgiving, a time for family to come together and be thankful for what we have over the past year.
Don't Eat West Virginia Honey (Part 1)
I know that Gramercy Honey is kind of a local phenomenon. Award winning at all kinds of local fairs in the West Virginia Appalachia area, and all that crap. But you really shouldn’t be touching the stuff. I haven’t in years. You see, the thing is Gramercy isn’t just a brand of honey. It’s also a town. Yeah, I know you can get all that off the label, and a whole bunch of other feel good artisanal small business bullshit too. But you see, I grew up in Gramercy, and I know its secrets. I know that sounds vague, but it’s true. There are so many things I can tell you, so many cracks in the rural small town facade the town presents, but I’m going start all the way at the beginning. This was the very first time I realized something was very wrong in the tiny little town I grew up in.
The Ruined Book
Lost books dried water in between their dog eared pages; the angry tears you bled muffled behind a thin wooden door. You hid to nurse the wounds casually inflicted everyday by the one thing you had created through
She says heart of gold You say selfless is not The years are past The years stay on Love I bet Hatred I hope not Words come from the mouth
I was in a relationship for two years with someone I loved deeply. He woke up one day and decided that he no longer loved me. This is a collection of some of my many thoughts, good and bad, that I had written over the two years I was with him, and now that we have ended our time together I felt the need to share them.
New Games Vs. Old Computers
Up until pretty recently, I was always on the bleeding edge of technology, barely keeping up and definitely not meeting the cutting edge. I'd buy a game that looked fun to play, turn down all the settings ingame, and realize I was still getting low frames that caused the game to be jerky and mostly unplayable. Eventually I got sick of this, and started messing around trying to figure out a way to make these games work. There had to be a way, right? Sometimes, no. There are some games that just can't be played on some machines. If you have 4GB RAM, an integrated GFX card, and an Intel Pentium processor, don't expect to be playing Rust or Ark. Still, you should be able to play a lot of games that are just a few years old on a machine like that. Here's a few things to try, but keep in mind these are mostly tricks for Windows users, since Windows is the largest-supported gaming platform out right now:
Review: The Square
Being crowned the winner of the Palme D'Or at Cannes gives it such a hype that expect it to be a possible Oscar front-runner or contender at the very least.
