2nd chapter or maybe 1st chapter continued

So each week or a couple times a week i’m going to attempt to write some more chapters, or paragraphs, in the development of the short story I want to write based on a sci fi idea that came up during a recent podcast.  Here’s the first entry: https://mikejohnsonpa.wordpress.com/2011/08/22/1st-draft-of-a-story-based-on-mike-hs-wow-signal-idea/

I don’t know how long this will be or if there will even be chapters, but if there are chapters than this may or may not be chapter two.

Standing on the rooftop of his penthouse apartment, Alex gazed at the auburn colored haze that engulfed most of the northern skyline and wondered if it had all been worth it. Alex knew that he himself had only played a minor role in the development of the world around him, but he couldn’t shake the small tinge of regret and guilt over the way things had turned out.  As he breathed in the cool rush of August air that circled the skyscrapers surrounding his building, Alex thought back to an exchange between himself and his mentor Dr. Jacobs less than 24 hours ago. The conversation had centered around the role science plays in the development of society and the necessary costs that invariably arise from each act of progress and enlightenment.

There was one particular phrase that his mentor had said in that empty hospital room that made Alex wince.  At the time he hadn’t given much thought to the real meaning of the words when Jacobs said “We are but two in a long line of those who helped move mankind out of the ever changing darkness of its past and into the promising light of the infinite horizon.”  Over the past hour and a half the complicit nature of his friend’s statement followed Alex like a ghostly specter as he walked along the roof’s stone ledges.

The faint melodic sounds whispering in Alex’s ear let him know that his sojourn needed to come to an unwanted conclusion.  The unique series of tones continued until Alex finally started to move to the ancient steel door that provided access to the gravel covered perch he had spent most of his free time over the last several years. The feel of the cold rough metal of the door’s handle as Alex pulled the door open, helped to ground him back into reality for a brief moment of clarity.  The simple act of opening the door reminded Alex that not everything in life needs to be theoretical conjecture, and that there is room for the concrete somewhere in this universe.

The clarity of that moment was shattered by the door’s hinges as they made an alarming loud metallic squeal that, after all these years, still managed to awaken a primal fear deep inside him. He knew it wasn’t the suddenness or volume or pitch of the noise that caused him distress. Instead it was the echo the sound made as it bounced around the soulless night air.

As Alex stood in the door way listening to the last dying echoes in the distant darkness, he realized that the primal fear had been replaced by something else.  The fear hadn’t been replaced by a feeling, but instead had been sanitized by a harsh realization. In a sprawling metropolis that was once the residence of nearly 3 million people; tonight it was the home of just one man.

Entering the stairwell that lead down to his spacious apartment, Alex felt himself being consumed by an oppressive air of dread.  It was the same experience he had felt everyday for the past two years when leaving the serenity of his rooftop retreat.  The stairwell was by no means a cramped area, and Alex was not the type to feel overwhelmed by uncomfortable environments. The claustrophobia that wrapped itself around Alex was instead caused by the sudden shift in focus his mind endured as it started to prepare for the tasks that lay ahead. 

 

No longer given the freedom of cognition the rooftop afforded, Alex tried to distract his consciousness with thoughts of the immediate as he continued down the flight of oak stairs. Alex considered laughing at the preposterousness amount of effort that must have once been put forth in order to make steps of such an organic material. When he reached the landing, Alex paused so that he could soak in the artistry of the massive oil painting that stretched almost the entire length of the hallway before him.  The soft melody he last heard on the roof top began anew, but Alex was determined to savor this moment despite the audible intrusion.

 

 A moment of awe slowly drifted over Alex as he considered the skill and imagination that must have been required to assemble paint and brush strokes into such a beautiful symphony of color. As Alex leaned closer to the work of art, the shadows in the dim hallway seemed to respond to an unspoken command as they relented to the increased glow of the over head lights.  

 Ok actually I posted the first part with some small edits I made today.  Ok maybe I’ll get a third part up there in another few days.

 

 

 

Page Views Mother Fucker

I was taking a look at the stats for my wordpress site and I came up with a genius idea.   The top searches that lead to my site are “Erica Campbell” , “Vida Guerra” , and “Carmen Electra” . So, why not just go all in and add some new posts that are dedicated to these lovely ladies and then let the surge of page views wash over my site.

But I can’t just post a bunch of pics of the three ladies without any justification so the post (well, actually I could but this will be more fun).  What I’m going to do instead, is take each lady and give her a post where I decide who is the hottest ___Insert Name____.  Let’s start with Carmen Electra.

Who is the Hottest Carmen?

Carmen Electra – Playboy playmate turned baywatch babe turned movie “star”.

carmen electra hair and hand bra

carmen electra hair and hand bra

Good start, but lets add a few more pics to attract more visitors.

carmen electra bikini and sunglasses

I wonder why she's shrugging her shoulders, maybe someone asked if Rodman's penis was twice as big as Prince's

And one final entry for Carmen Electra

Carmen with a pink bikini

If it was a Michael Bay movie she'd be more sweaty and there would be an explosion in the background

Carmen Luvana – retired pornstar who just walked away from the game while still in her prime.

Carmen Luvana getting ready to touch her naught parts

The game just wasn't in her any more... and by "game", i mean massive penises.

I’m not going to lie, it’s tough to find pics of her with clothes on

Carmen luvana looking good at AVN

Doesn't she look adorable there and...almost.. kind of maybe innocent.. sort of?

Ok and here is the only other picture of her on the internet where she has clothes on.

Carmen luvana has a delicious booty

ffffuuuuuuuuuucccccckkkkkkk

Cam With Carmen – webcam babe who may or may not have a real last name.

Cam With Carmen sucks at boxing

In truth, she's a terrible boxer.

This chick made her name by almost getting naked on the internet and now she makes her money by totally getting naked on the internet.

Cam With Carmen in a Camo bikini

Where is she in this picture? I can't find her. She must be camouflaged some how.

Supposedly her boobies are all natural, which is a point in favor for her over the previous two ladies on this list.

Cam with Carmen latex bra

Her audition for SI's latex swimsuit bullshit

Carmen Ortega – Some chick that reggie bush is probably hitting off.

Carmen Ortega Glam pic

hot I guess, but nothing special honestly

Granted I couldn’t land a chick that hot but I think she’s not even in the competition with the other three ladies.

Carmen Ortega Cowboy Hat

Ok the cowgirl look totally does it for me, but i'm still not ready to put her in the same class as the other three

Well let’s give her one more chance to make some kind of impression

carmen ortega side boob hand bra butt floss

uggghghhhhhhhh!!!! carmen ortega side boob hand bra butt floss!!!!!

Feel free to vote for the winner by posting comments in the comments section.  Also, here are some more random pics of the hotties:

1st Draft of 1st chapter of a story based on Mike H’s Wow Signal idea

If you listen to the most recent Pops Podcast you will hear Mike h give an excellent idea for a book.  I told him i’m not good enough of a writer to do that book, but maybe I can do a short story based on his idea.  The first part/chapter of that short story is below.

Standing on the rooftop of his penthouse apartment, Alex gazed at the auburn colored haze that engulfed most of the northern skyline and wondered if it had all been worth it. Alex knew that he himself had only played a minor role in the development of the world around him, but he couldn’t shake the small tinge of regret and guilt over the way things had turned out.  As he breathed in the cool rush of August air that circled the skyscrapers surrounding his building, Alex thought back to and exchange between himself and his mentor Dr. Jacobs less than 24 hours ago. The conversation had centered around the role science plays in the development of society and the necessary costs that invariably arise from each act of progress and enlightenment that men like Alex and Dr. Jacobs are able to present to humankind.

There was one particular phrase that his mentor had said in that empty hospital room that made Alex wince.  At the time he hadn’t given much thought to the real meaning of the words when Jacobs said “We are but two in a long line of those who helped move mankind out of the ever changing darkness of it’s past and into the promising light of the infinite horizon.”  Over the past hour and a half the complicit nature of his friend’s statement followed Alex like a ghostly specter as he walked along the roof top’s stone ledges.

The faint melodic sounds whispering in Alex’s ear let him know that his sojourn needed to come to an unwanted conclusion.  The unique series of tones continued until Alex finally started to move to the ancient steel door that provided access to the gravel covered perch he had spent most of his free time over the last several years. The feel of the cold rough metal of the door’s handle as Alex pulled the door open, helped to ground him back into reality for a brief moment of clarity.  The simple act of opening the door reminded Alex that not everything in life needs to be theoretical conjecture and that there is room for the concrete  somewhere in this universe.

The clarity of that moment was shattered by the door’s hinges as they made an alarming loud metallic squeal that, after all these years, still managed to awaken a primal fear deep inside him. He knew it wasn’t the suddenness or volume or pitch of the noise that caused him distress. Instead it was the echo the sound made as it bounced around the soulless night air.

In a sprawling metropolis that was once the residence of nearly 3 million people, tonight it was the home of just one man.

I have an idea of how I want the structure of the story to go, but I think it works better if you don’t know the ultimate ending as suggested by Mike H. Soooooo blame Mike H for giving away the plot twist but don’t forget to thank him for the awesome idea.

Dragon naturally speaking sucks at transcribing pops podcasts

So I attempted to turn to wav files containing embarrassing johnson stories into text files through he magic of a voice to text program called Dragon natural speaking. It didn’t turn out so well.  The first wav file I used was from one of the first popscasts where I told the story of an angry coworker’s husband who called my phone cause he saw another guys number listed on her phone and thought she was cheating. Then he found out it was me on the other end of the line and just assumed there was no way I could possibly the person she was cheating with and he apologized and hung up.  It’s a good story and I’m under selling it but check out what Dragon Naturally Speaking turned it into:

What it is the best friend with a delivery girl know only you know what you hasn’t had that happened to him and to you as you go trying to relate to God as is like you just like that happening, but not really why will you… You have our bodies don’t annihilate you think that I like you walked on like right like actually turned the corner as if I was about to get assassinated like it I was headed with the moment and Johan looked at him and he’s like right where he looked at his like you walked on and like if I actually find water on the corner that and that it happened like were you looking at the plate will why are you and we all just as him and him and him but so you and him and during on-site yet a lot of that happened with me to but it was more like a country club white version of it in a ability I definitely rightly in my would be funnier if it is during his best friend painkiller whatever I would end but as it went on like more stories he told like me was gone legit like it’s possible I mean that I don’t know I yeah can think people so that is him and Sylvia easily does other story you’d like you like this one best friend of his was no Metro girl who was in a relationship that he phrased differently than I did with him and you can imagine that all ears were shortly to get out of my female companion and him and him get that going with idea of going to the movies late him and his girl and than this guy just chit that he was messed around with and he and the guy had just been worn a poor that the girls boyfriend with the talking kill and their likeness the movies you know will resident with me I will collect plate IV: Rocco was like I need it very hard and I need a him and him showing rockets out of the office and let what you him and him and so you know I eat yet easily direct movies and like a band will avoid screeches up doors open to guys jump out one guy actually has like doozies you know and in the other guy had a shotgun and we shot with a shotgun dueling over the point blank range the guy who crosses the room while he might be embellishing will you happen to know Buddy and then the other guy just like the kylix radome with bullets with one it’s pretty nascent like to motorcycle came up only one fire you, just like Rivera does drove all and legislate crazy people dying and Alice likes of this is all because just because of the woman any site you have now playing out and any kind of ugly and when that happened your money where I go to the one of my other favorite stories is when I was living at home and Jerry Rollins went with me and I think Mesa % and I got a phone call and I did recognize phone number with a local number from like below and immediately on the other end this I guess you I’ll try to that and like you I’ve never get out really dumb people younger like I is whether they have what you like oh I I said you zombies be wheeling me like that is my call and unlike the great long-distance offer to you by… And still I can’t like this is my account you like uses and in him you think is likable and not mine is like you we can leverage the situation that make America yelling INI I know Israel is only the boys be almost guy in a violent way and is in the public and self-defense mechanism so you know this guy focuses on like of this is my I help you in the guy) yellow background is Mike I hear this all is in the know this woman is like oh my Johnson room work a guy goes all in all engagement on the phone invite out of my company started in one him is like this is him him you know… Husband in of the major idea real name for the lanes with the actual people a light in the Melissa’s husband I ask all a yeah I thought she was messed around on me and I thought some guys number on her cell phone I is sorry that you have unite him really start and end up adjusting their life he is not threatened by him and take over a agreement; never bought into it which is implied like I only remember him but he remembers me like he saw me it was like yet write you a note rented to you like no one would fault him right then and in light and the guy was like on and it’s a messed up Johan, buddy minute likeness Angel and you do for you if I might worry restaurant and to drench it now you get that out so that the BLB below a limit to you and him to write an iPhone language door and him every day and you would like you that’s that’s that’s that’s the public ESO rights are the next Alice like never upon you again after that you know because a likely make directly messed around with early yet and you him

It looks like the bizarre text you see when you visit a message board that has been taken over by spam bots.  Ok here is another Johnson Story that has been transcribed by Dragon Naturally speaking. Try and figure out what it is about:

Finally done with my new computer desk (mostly)

Ok I still need to use my dremel tool and cut some circuit boards down so they fit onto the legs, but for the most part the new computer desk is completed.  Yes I was planning on putting rope lighting around the inside but it didn’t look cool and instead looked tacky.  Plus not enough room to install fluorescent I’m sad to say.

I'll upload the earlier pics later

So did I steal this idea from someone else who did a much better job with a coffee table? yes. Did I also make several shitty paintings and not finish them and hang them on the wall behind the desk? Answer below:

Ok, yes, those two flat panels aren't hooked up to anything... yet

And if you are tired of looking at nerd art, lets look at bull shit pretentious abstract art. Below is some “paintings” I made on a bunch of left over plywood. It is 12 feet long and about three feet high.  I kind of like it and think it will look good in the living room/theater once I get the place not shitty looking and messy.

I haven't hung it yet since it's 12 god damn feet long
