  • Judah Lewis is back in The Babysitter 2 -- Mike, 16:00:08 09/26/19 Thu

    Not sure what the plot will be cause Judah's 18 now but, hey, I'm not going to complain. Judah's so easy on the eyes. :P

    This is a trailer from the first film.

  • I'm so pumped for this! -- Mike, 01:08:53 09/23/19 Mon

    In my opinion, Breaking Bad was the best TV show of all time. Best produced, written, acted, best... everything.

    Anyway, they've made a Breaking Bad movie following Jesse Pinkman after the series finale, ("Yeah bitch!" :P)

  • "Give It To Me Straight" (Part One) has been posted... -- Comicality, 09:49:39 09/22/19 Sun

    Just a quick note to let you know that this month's Daydream Short, "Give It To Me Striaght" has just been posted on the site and it'll be up in the Library in a few minutes. Cool? Let me know what you think.

    The past three or four days, we've been dealing with the details of a family issue, and...well, it reached a point where there was nothing else that could be done. So a close family member passed away this morning, and arrangements have to be made and all. :(

    But, honestly, it's not really a super sad situation. She lived a long life. Longer than most. And I got to see her in the Hospital on Friday and she had a lot of family and friends around, so...it's a good thing to see her at peace, you know?

    Anyway, "Gone From Daylight" will be up later on tonight when the embargo is lifted, and then more tomorrow if I can swing it. K?

    Seezya then.

  • I'm not sure if I should be impressed or freaked out. -- Mike, 19:35:47 09/20/19 Fri

    There's this new app in China that allows everyday people to put their faces over an actor's, in a film. And it looks pretty realistic. I imagine it'll only improve with time.

    ...But very true. Ads like this are kind of disturbing to watch...but we watch the reality of it in the news on an almost weekly basis these days. So this was needed. I hope everyone gets a chance to see this.

    I grew up in one of the most violent cities in America, and I can honestly say that I NEVER had to worry about this kind of thing when I was a kid. Or as an adult. This sickness has to stop...

  • Black Summer -- Mike, 00:12:56 09/17/19 Tue

    I'm half way through this series and I don't want it to end.

    I'm enjoying it more than the last few seasons of TWD I watched, before I gave up on that show.

    Something's wrong with YouTube's embedding settings. It won't let me embed any video the normal way. You can still click on the player and select "embed video," but you can't select the size of the player.

    So just an heads up for anyone planning to embed a video in the near future.

  • Imagine Question For 9/15 -- Comicality, 17:16:03 09/15/19 Sun

    As we take a moment to look back on our lives so far...we may pick out certain events, situations, or people that we've crossed paths with...that ultimately changed our lives and led us to become who we are today.

    Sometimes these changes were for the better...and sometimes they're for the worst.

    But they happened. A fork in the road that led to fortunes and misfortunes along the way. The question, what were some of those 'forks' for you? They can be good memories or bad ones, depending on what you're willing to share with us. What big choices have you made that had a major impact on your life? What friends or enemies have you met that helped to mold your perspective on life in general? A parent, a coach, a best friend? Maybe it was a job that you got, a class with an inspiring teacher, maybe it was a love that became a part of your life? Or maybe it was a tragedy that you had to face to become stronger?

    Whatever those forks were, and the knives you may have had to face to get through it...let us know about it! And think what your life would be like if you had taken the other road instead of the one you chose.

    This is for our November/Thanksgiving issue of Imagine! As always, anonymous answers are welcome. I'd love to hear what you guys have to say! And I'll be answering too. Promise! :)

    Answer away!

  • Just to liven this place up a bit. -- Mike, 00:42:19 09/15/19 Sun

    It's 'The Wanker Song'.

    It's a song we used to sing in the playground, during break (recess), at school. Originally performed by a local celebrity, in the 1970s.

    For some reason I got this song stuck in my head earlier, after not hearing it for decades. It gave me a chuckle, so I figured I'd share it.

    Let me know if some of the lyrics are confusing. Some of the words are local slang from Yorkshire.

  • I can't be the only one who enjoys Rick And Morty, can I? -- Mike, 00:19:54 09/11/19 Wed

    For those who haven't seen the show, Rick And Morty is kind of like Back To The Future, meets Doctor Who, meets Family Guy. It's about a universe travelling scientist and his grandson (with other family members thrown in along the way.)

    Some stuff they get up to is not only hilarious, but pretty ingenious.

    After a long time coming (which is usually the case for this series,) season 4 is almost upon us. :D

  • I don't know what it is... -- Comicality, 05:19:51 09/09/19 Mon

    But one of my younger cousins is obsessed with putting makeup on me! LOL! Like...she won't stop! She's like...SIX years old, but I'm scared to sit still around her because she keeps trying to 'pretty' me up! Get AWAY, dangit!!!

    Then again, her mom was a model for a short time. And I was with a modeling agency when I went out on acting jobs when I was younger. So maybe it's karma? But let me tell you...it's a hassle and a burden. Seriously! I HATE makeup! Ugh!

    That girl needs another hobby...

    No more makeup for me! Blecchhh!

  • A quick note... -- Comicality, 09:36:09 09/04/19 Wed

    As they say...God never laughs harder than when you try to make plans. Hehehe!

    So, I expected things to be busy over Labor day weekend this week...but I'm really NOT accustomed to dealing with 'hurricane' shit! Arrrghhh!

    Basically, I don't think Hurricane Dorian is going to sweep in and cause too much damage where I am. At best, we'll just have some severe storms and some heavy rain. ::Fingers crossed:: BUT...apparently all of the schools, churches, and community centers, in the area have made themselves available to everyone fleeing the Bahamas and southern Florida this week. And all of the kids are out of school until Friday. So I'm trying to do my family duty and help out with this whole situation. But I'm still here! So I'll be around!

    I just found "The Plateau" chapter 3 and about half of chapter 4 a few days ago! So I want to move that to the top of my posting list for next week! Yay! You have no idea some of the stuff I've found lately! Every day is like Christmas now! :P

    Anyway, seezya soon! K? I'll try to do some more emails tonight if I can!

  • Imagine Magazine Question For 9/1 -- Comicality, 12:44:23 09/01/19 Sun

    It's a question that you may not want to answer too quickly. It's a sign that you may be answering more on blind faith than actual self reflection. Really think about this.

    Have you ever wondered who you would be...if all of life's consequences were removed? No punishment, no jail time, no revenge, no fear of judgement or some sort of hell bound sentence for your soul when it's all said and done? What if you could do whatever you wanted, whenever you wanted...and never once had to pay for your actions?

    What would your sense of morality be like? What would your relationship to the rest of society be like? How would you determine right from wrong? I mean...we see it all the time, don't we? The rich, the celebrities, the athletes, the politicians...they get away with stuff that NONE of us could ever hope to get away with. The drugs, the cheating, the mistresses, the sexual assault, the thievery. The Bill Cosbys, the Donald Trumps, the R Kellys, the Harvey Weinsteins, the Brian Singers...what if you could go years and years without ever having to think twice about being caught? They've got an army of lawyers and fixers that guarantee that they'd stay swimming in champagne and lobsters for as long as they're willing to pay for their services. They're too 'big' to go to jail.

    But...what about YOU? Are these 'other' people all crazy and deranged? Or is it the complete freedom from consequence that causes them to tap into the darkest parts of themselves? And if the latter is true...what darkness would YOU tap into...if given the opportunity?

    Can morality, discipline, guilt, and shame...exist in a vacuum free from punishment?

    An Imagine question for our Halloween issue of Imagine Magazine! Feel free to answer in the replies down below. As always, anonymous replies are welcome. I'll be adding my own answer some time this week. I always give you guys a chance to answer first.

    Also, I'm looking for a few short ghost stories for our October issue! So if any of you are interested, let me know! And I'll save you a spot! Cool?

    So...I'm still kind of wondering how Arnold fits into all of this. (Other than...because Hollywood and money) If this takes place directly after T2, and the other movies don't exist...then Arnold is dead, right? TWICE!

  • LOL!!! Really, dude...? -- Comicality, 00:38:31 08/26/19 Mon

    Well, this week, our dictator/king...oops, I mean PRESIDENT has sent out a tweet saying that he hear by ORDERS all businesses in the US to find an alternative to dealing with China! And I sell ebooks online all over the world, so...that kind of includes me. So sorry, ALL OF ASIA!!! No more ebooks for you guys! Our 'chosen one' has forbid it! And apparently...this is how America works now!

    WTF is going on? Seriously? If you're still wearing a MAGA hat at this point, then you need to seek help. I don't mean that as a dig at you, I'm being serious. There is something wrong here.

    Ps- Do you remember all of those videos that said Obama was the Antichrist? Do you remember the biblical passages they used to PROVE it? He'll be jealous, vengeful, lustful, a renegade, greedy, boastful and full of pride, full of wrath, the 'Father of Lies', and he would one day claim (In PUBLIC) to be God himself??? You remember that? Or did you forget your own scriptures? You remember, right?

    K. Just wondering.

    Donald Trump just retweeted a quote calling him the second coming of God a few days ago. The King of Israel. And claimed to be the 'chosen one' while looking up at the sky. A sci fi movie couldn't have done it any better. Just saying.

    As a writer of fiction...there's a need to be consistent in your thinking. So...ask yourself...

    Is this not what the super religious folks have been fearfully watching out for from the very beginning? Is that hat the mark of the beast? Hehehe, who knows?

    By the way, Jared Kushner owns a 666 property in New York! Dude, I should TOTALLY write this story! This would make for an AWESOME sci fi/horror tale!

  • I was really curious...but I did originally have my doubts... -- Comicality, 06:05:07 08/24/19 Sat

    ...But after the D23 trailer, I am actually REALLY impressed!!! The idea of a Star Wars live action series, even a miniseries, seemed like a pretty difficult thing to pull off. I was worried that it would come off cheesy and low budget to a point where even the best of stories couldn't save it.

    But LOOK at this!!! :O This is a streaming series??? That looks like a full blown movie! Apparently, they spent nearly 10 million bucks per episode. Which they can do, because...Disney! Seriously though, this looks friggin' awesome! Jango and Boba Fett are gone, but I guess this is the next Mandalorian bounty hunter, and he looks badass. I'm in!

    Now..if they could hit us with a "Black Widow" trailer later on tonight and let us see a glimpse of Taskmaster...I'll be a happy camper! XD

  • Yeah...that's pretty much how I feel... -- Comicality, 00:58:33 08/23/19 Fri

    This whole thing is so stupid. Are you kidding me??? You made a BILLION dollars! As huge as Spiderman is, it's never done that before. And Tom Holland is the best, most comic book accurate, casting choice ever! The formula is FLAWLESS!!! And Sony is going to screw it all up.

    It's this kind of greed that f'd up Marvel to begin with and nearly caused them to go bankrupt. It's like, "WE made you all of this money by treating the character the way he deserves to be treated, the studio's happy, the fans are happy...we made good on our end of the bargain. Maybe you can stop screwing us by giving us pennies while you guys get rich off of our hard work? Let's split it 50/50 and keep making money together!"

    And Sony is like, "NO!!! We want to own Spidey and make all the money and YOU guys do all the hard work! Especialy since our last Spidey franchise FAILED miserably!" WTF?

    If Sony takes Tom Holland out of the MCU, then I'm done. They'll never get another dollar from me. I'm so sick of this level of selfishness. That's the dumbest business strategy ever. Let's get super popular with a crazy brandname...and then RUIN it all for the sake of money. Sighhh...corporate minds never learn.

    They need to fix this...like...NOW!

  • Ok, so I need some advice -- Siege, 13:46:51 08/22/19 Thu
    I found out last week that I'm a father! Me!!

    A little backstory here...

    Back in 1999, I dated a girl that had some issues. She got caught up with some not so nice people, and ended up getting hooked on drugs. I tried to be there for her, tried to help her get clean. She cleaned up, and I thought things were gonna work out. She got pregnant. At the time I was terrified! But we talked about it, and the more and more I thought about it, the more excited I got. A little Siege running around would be pretty cool!

    She disappeared for a weekend, and when she showed up, she told me she had an abortion. That was the end of our relationship. She disappeared not long after that. Moved and I never saw her again.

    This past weekend, my best friend from back home rang me up and told me he ran into her, with a young man that looked so much like me that he could have almost been my clone. My friend asked her, and she said that yes, I was the father. My friend went to give her my number, but she refused to take it and they left the restaurant.

    I've spent so much of the past few days in a tornado of feelings. Going from being so angry I see red, to crying for hours, to being so confused as to why she would do something like that.

    Here's where the advice kicks in. What should I do?? Do I try to find my son? Would he even want to know me? I start off thinking "Of course he would! I would if I was in his position." But then I second guess myself and think "He may have had a really good life with a father that raised him and me showing up could throw his life into chaos."

    I'm just feeling so lost over this. I've always wanted a son, and now I have one and I missed out completely on his life, his smiles and hugs. I just don't know what to do.

    Thoughts? I'd really appreciate everyone's perspective.

  • Hiya people’s! -- Siege, 19:06:13 08/18/19 Sun
    It’s been forever and a day, yet feels like no time has passed and it feels like it’s been 1000 years all at the same time.

    Life’s been up and down. But who’s hasn’t right?

    I’ve recently found that I’ve missed all the stories, sorta like how I’ve been feeling that life is passing me by. So here I am, back again, losing myself in all the wonderful stories Com created.

    Much love to all of you!

  • Imagine Magazine Question for 8/15 -- Comicality, 16:22:00 08/15/19 Thu

    It's something to think about, you know?

    Imagine that you've found someone special out there. Someone you find beautiful, inside and out. You laugh together, have a lot in common, and genuinely care deeply for one another in every possible way...except one.

    The question is...what happens if you're romantically or sexually incompatible in a relationship? Even if EVERYTHING else is coming up roses. What happens if you like to kiss and cuddle, but your partner doesn't? What if he likes open displays of affection in public and the thought of it makes you cringe? What if one of you wants it hard and aggressive five days a week, and the other wants it slow and sensual maybe once or twice?

    That's not to speak of practices that may be borderline fetishes that one partner or the other may not be into. Bondage or foot worship or role playing...maybe something as simple as talking dirty to one another. One hand...sex isn't everything, right? If you're in love then you're in love. But, on the other hand...will there be something 'missing' if one party isn't fully getting their needs met? Can you two be truly happy like that? Will it lead to resentment, or boredom, or forced compromise, or maybe even cheating on each other?

    Let us know what you think about romantic or sexual incompatibility for next month's issue! We'd be happy to hear what you have to say. Anonymous comments are welcome.

Some more articles from myself, the winners of our "Beholders" voting poll last month, and a new chapter of "Kiss Or Miss" By Julien Taylor!

    HUGE thanks to the hard work put in by everybody who participated in this newest offering, which was one of the most difficult to slap together! I believe that there are a few more articles floating out there that may or may not be added in later. But if not, or if you guys had stuff to submit, we'll just save it for the September issue, ok? We definitely want to work towards having all of material in as soon as possible for future issues. It just makes it easier to have everything looking great and ready to roll ahead of time. I'll be better about it myself! :)

    That's it for now! I am working on this laptop and doing as much damage control on a daily basis as is humanly possible...but I'm still here, still watching, and I'll be in touch soon! Cool?

    ENJOY the newest issue of Imagine! More submissions are always welcome from you guys who want to participate! And i'll talk to you soon!

    Love always!

  • Alright....it's almost 7:30 AM... -- Comicality, 07:32:29 08/11/19 Sun

    I'm giving up for the night. Er...morning...

    I'm giving this laptop a few more days to stop being soooooooo slow and screwed up, and then I'm wiping it clean. I honestly can't take this anymore. I just want to be functional again. This is just stupid now. :(

    Anyway, I'm going to get a bit of sleep, and jump right back in again when I wake up a few hours from now. But...life is still good. I had an awesome time with my family yesterday, hehehe! And I'll try to get to my emails soon. K?

    ALSO...the first trailer was released for "Honey Boy" this weekend! I was really curious about this movie when I first heard about it, and it looks like it might be good! It's about the life and childhood of Shia Lebeouff, and he wrote it himself, and is playing the role of his own father in the movie. And actor, Noah Jupe is playing a younger version of Shia as he began his career. Noah Jupe is an amazing actor to be so young. Definitely in that Jacop Tremblay, Haley Joel Osement, Elijah Wood, category. And after "Wonder" and "A Quiet Place", I'd love to see what he does next! So check it out!

    Gotta run! But I'll seezya soon!

    By the way, does anybody know how to open epb files? I've got a bunch of files that won't open, and I don't even know what they are. NOT 'epub' files...that's different. Just epb. Let me know in the replies below if you know what this is and if I can find a way to open them up, or convert them to something else.

    Take care!

  • The Bi Side of Life. -- Mike, 11:22:21 08/09/19 Fri

    Seventeen year old Joshua Rush, the actor who played Cyrus, Disney's first gay main character, on Andi Mack, comes out as Bisexual in real life.

    Unfortunately the show was cancelled after 3 seasons - but that's quite typical for Disney shows, apparently.

  • I've got some family coming over this weekend... -- Comicality, 05:41:59 08/09/19 Fri

    I just found out about it last night. They're not staying with us, but they've got teen/tween kids. And my room is, like, video games and comic books and horror movies, LOL! So this is the first place they want to visit. It'll be super fun, of course...but I'm still dedicated to staying on task. So you'll get new material soon. :)

    Up first? "Savage Moon"! And I'm searching for "The Plateau" chapter 3...so that's up next. K?

    I'm working my ass off right now! LMAO!!! Promise! So I'll be back in your good graces soon!

    By the way... Ruel released a new song and video a few hours ago! Siggghhhh....he's so dreamy! He can stalk me any time! Giggles!

  • Almost out of the weeds, but not quite... -- Comicality, 23:53:17 08/06/19 Tue

    That took FOREVER!!! But I'm happy to say that everything that I recovered from this Windows incident has been recovered in some form, and is now in a safe place. And even though some of my files have been corrupted, it could have been MUCH much worse! So, I'll count my blessings and not complain. :)

    Now...only two more problems remain...

    #1- None of my files have names. NONE of them! The pics are together, the music files are together, the video files are together, the written documents are together...but they are scattered in some kind of crazy disarray where I'm literally going to have to click on each and every single one of them and see what they are, where they go, and then rename them all. That's nearly 2 TB worth of stuff...so that's going to take some time. Lucky for me...I don't sleep.

    #2- My files are safe, but my laptop is still a mess. Grrrr! Thanks to this update, it freezes, it's glitchy, it won't even turn OFF half the time! So...I may have to reset the whole thing from scratch, download ALL of my programs and apps again, and basically rebuild my computer as if it was brand new. Again...this will take a LONG time. I already tried to finish the update (didn't work), tried a previous restore point (didn't work), I'm trying a defrag right now to see if it'll help...but nothing seems to be working just yet. I really DON'T want to do that, but I may not have a choice. If you guys have any ideas...now is the time to tell me. If there's a simpler fix, I'm open to suggestions.

    Now, for the good news! Hehehe!

    A bunch of my latest files are safe, and stories will begin to flood the site this coming Saturday night! In fact, the short story, "Overheard", was posted on the site earlier this morning! So, if you haven't read it yet...run over and check it out! Let me know what you think! And I'll see you guys this weekend! I'll have some time off from work soon, and school officially went back in session as of today! So I'm off of babysitting duty for my cousins and the like! LOL! I love them to death, but...JESUS, they've got energy!

    Now I can have the house to myself for a while! And you know what THAT means! = NODS =


    Hehehe! Yep! That's me now. Door wide open. All day long! Giggles!

    Again, my apologies for the extended wait! The wheels on the bus are going round and round again! And August's issue of Imagine Magazine WILL come out on time! So look for it on the 15th next week! Cool?

    Love you all! MWAH!!!

  • OODLES AND OODLES OF NIAGARA FALLS PICS! -- bwctwriter, 02:20:39 08/04/19 Sun
    This past week, I took a vacation to Niagara Falls! I stayed on the Canada side, but did venture onto the American side as well. I took a lot of pics, and I did my best to organize them here...

    Soo... Miscellaneous trip pics (coming and going from airport, room pics, hotel, etc.) can be found here:


    I took a ride on the Maid of the Mist boat tour... Close enough to the falls to feel the force of the great falls! Crazy! Couldn't take a ton of pics up close cuz I didn't trust how water resistant my phone was... But I did take a few. :-)


    Cave of the Winds tour. Caves behind the Bridal Veil Falls. There's some walkways around parts of the falls too... It's crazy how close u can get to the rapidly rushing water!


    And the Hard Rock Cafe in Niagara Falls, Ontario. I feel like there's a pic or two that didn't upload from my phone to the website... But I'll find them eventually.


    It was definitely something! I'm glad I took the time to check it out! It was a much-needed vacation! I highly recommend checking out the falls at least once in your life. :-)

  • Holy shit! This is epic!! -- Mike, 20:33:01 08/03/19 Sat
    Tom Welling's going to reprise his role from Smallville in Arrowverse's next crossover, Crisis on Infinite Earths.

    It's been nearly ten years since Smallville concluded, and I still miss the show. It'll blow my mind to see Welling back as Clark.

    Brandon Routh from the 2006 Man Of Steel will also be donning the red cap once again.

    I think there's going to be multiple versions of the same characters.

    There's also rumours of Justin Hartley returning to play the Green Arrow, along with Stephen Amell, the current guy.

    Both guys are fucking gorgeous. So along with Welling all sharing the same screen, I'm wondering how I'm going to actually be able to follow the plot, ha-ha!

    I'll just be drooling the entire time :P

    Although Tom has aged since his Smallville days. He's grey now. But he's aged really well. He just recently became a dad. A very hot dad. :P

  • Ok...ok...dangit! You got me! -- Comicality, 02:27:04 07/29/19 Mon

    I've been on the ropes about this one since I first heard of it. I mean...the Terminator franchise has been sliding down down down since the early 90's. I wasn't sure if I wanted to be fooled again.

    This new one? Linda Hamilton is back. Ok...that's a plus. James Cameron has the rights back, and he's taking a more hands on approach to the movie. Hmmmm...ok. Another big plus. Arnold is in it. Check. It's actually R-rated this time, not that kiddie PG-13 stuff. Check. I'm interested, but.....

    Then I see...Eddie Furlong is coming back to play John Connor again. Goddammit, Terminator!!! Alright! Enough already! I'll go see it! Geez! I promise! Quit making this sound so perfect! Ya didn't have to yank on the old teen-Comsie heart strings! :P

  • The Boys - a new show by Amazon. Available to stream now... -- Mike, 12:20:52 07/28/19 Sun

    The Boys is an irreverent take on what happens when superheroes, who are as popular as celebrities, as influential as politicians and as revered as Gods, abuse their superpowers rather than use them for good. It's the powerless against the super powerful as The Boys embark on a heroic quest to expose the truth about "The Seven", and their formidable Vought backing.

    It looks like it's going to be extremely gory, gritty and dark. So right up Com's alley :P

  • A quick update.... :) -- Comicality, 14:07:44 07/27/19 Sat

    SO...My computer is still repairing and saving files to a secure location right now as you read this. And it is a **LOT** of stuff!!! Like I said, this update pretty much wiped my entire laptop clean of everything that I've done for the past two or three years, so I'm recovering whole terabytes worth of material at the moment.

    So far, all of the pics have been saved, all of the downloads, all of the documents, and all of my music, are now in a safe place. However, the VIDEOS are taking forever! I've been recovering videos for three days straight now, and it's only about half way done! Just over six THOUSAND of them! Some are just short clips short and movie trailers that I was making for the site, but a majority of them were full length movies and Netflix series, and they will definitely take some time to retrieve.

    The BAD part is...this Microsoft update has screwed my system up to the point where it is really REALLY slow! And that is making this process take ten times longer than it should. But the only way to fix it would be to uninstall and reinstall the entire update from scratch in the hopes of fixing it so I can speed up the process of getting my files back in order. But updating again may actually corrupt and overwrite the very files that I'm trying to save. So...it's sort of a no win situation for now. :(

    But I AM still here! And I try to (slowly) get my email to load up every few days or so. So I'm listening! I just want to get this over with so we can get back to business around here! Cool?

    The videos are the only thing that I'm waiting on now! Once they're done being moved to a safe location, I'll dive right back in to where we left off! So hang in there with me for just a little bit longer! And maybe we can put the site back in motion as early as Monday morning!

    ::Fingers Crossed::

    Love you all! And I'll talk to you soon! :)

  • Haha! WTF did I just watch? -- Mike, 06:32:25 07/24/19 Wed

    OMG, the scene with the kid and Hitler running away from a bomb blast is ridiculous.

    A part of me knows I shouldn't be laughing though. Hitler did some fucked up shit.

    That said, this is a German boy's "imaginary" friend, Hitler. Not the actual Hitler.

  • Well this was fun.. -- Mike, 14:24:31 07/22/19 Mon

    An Englishman from the same city I was born and raised in.
    A Scottish man, (where I now live) and an American expat & comedian comparing school subjects and stuff.

    The craziest thing to me is the start times some schools in the US have. 7.30 - 8 AM? How do you guys do it? I was still dead until like 8 AM.

    At school, I'd be up for 8.10 and at school for 8.50. It helped that I lived literally across the road from my high school. And I'd be home for 3.05, unless I had detention, which I occasionally did. Then I'd be home for 3.50.

    My favourite subjects were Maths and science, and least favourite subjects were History, RS, oh and PE.
    It's funny I had an athletic build, but absolutely zero interest in sports.

    I have gained an interest in history since leaving school.
    But otherwise than that my interests haven't changed.

  • Some GREAT news, and some not so great news...but I'll take it! -- Comicality, 12:37:35 07/20/19 Sat

    First things first...

    (Comise when he saw that his files weren't all gone forever!)

    So that is a MAJOR relief!!! On Thursday i used a program called Disk Drill to see if I could get my stuff back somehow, and it took at least eleven hours (and nearly 100 bucks, unfortunately) to do a really REALLY deep search to grab everything...and it DID! In fact, it grabbed MORE than what I had just lost!

    Annnnd...that brings me to the 'not so great' news...

    Even though what I've seen so far only has minor instances of data corruption here and there...Disk Drill is very VERY good at its job! Almost too good. So it found everything that I've recently lost to this stupid update...everything that I might have lost on this laptop to previous updates, everything that i might have erased accidentally over the past few years, and everything that I've erased deliberately to clean up my system. And nothing has the name, label, or folder, that I originally had it in. Everything is just seen as File000000001....File000000002...File000000003...

    Ummm....yeah...I'm looking at 1.5 TERRABYTES of that right now! :/ So, to say that it will be a long...long...looooong time before I can get all of those photos, stories, songs, videos, etc back in a working an organized manner again would be a severe understatement. If I worked hard at it every single day from now until Xmas...I'd be surprised if I got even through a third of it all. BUT...the files are here, I' recovering them to an external hard drive, and I'll grab as many essential parts as I can this coming Sunday and Monday when I have some time off from work! K?

    Big thanks to you guys for being patient wwith me. My laptop is really slow right now. I don't know why. And every time I restart it, it uploads that stupid Windows update all over again, wiping out my desktop configuration, my browsers, and all of my favorites, passwords, cookies...this thing is a menace. I'm not going to try to fix it until everything is safe on another hard drive. I got lucky twice now. I doubt I'll geta third try at this.

    Anyway, seezya soon! I'm going to recover some more stuff and get back to dancing now! Life is good! XD

  • IT ENDS! -- Mike, 13:49:11 07/18/19 Thu

    [ Post a Reply to this Message ][ Edit | View ]

  • Ok...so, this is what's going on right now... -- Comicality, 08:49:00 07/18/19 Thu

    I was up until the early morning hours of Monday, and the newest issue of Imagine Magazine had just been posted. So I was making posts and trying to let people know that the July issue was out and ready to go. But my laptop had been acting really glitchy and slow and it was frustrating beyond belief, because I have a lot of stuff to do, and I don't have time for freezes and computer slow down, I need to get a LOT of stuff finished in whatever little amount of time that I can find online.

    So my laptop got SO slow and frustrating that I checked to see if there was an update or something that I was missing. Techys LOVE to completely fuck up your system so you're FORCED to upgrade and make way for silly add ons and gimmicks that you're never going to use, but they want to force you to do it anyway.

    A new Windows update was available, and I figured it would be easier to just take the update and wait an hour or so for it to fix my computer, than trying to spend triple the amount of time struggling through it. So...I accepted it.

    This was NOT a false update or a virus. This came directly from Microsoft. It took a while, and then I was greeted with a message saying, "Welcome to the BEST version of Windows 10 EVER!"

    And then...my desktop was completely screwed up. My taskbar had been erased. My videos, my pictures, my stories, my documents, and EVERY song in my music list....GONE! Folders empty! All of it! Stuff that I've had on my computer for YEARS...just...gone. :(

    I didn't ask for an update but my system had been so destroyed by whatever it was that they were doing, that I was willing to do ANYTHING to just get things back in working order. And Microsoft FUCKED me! For no reason whatsoever. It's all gone. Pics, notes, stuff for Imagine Magazine, videos that I was making...gone.

    Now, I did some research, and I found out that sometimes Windows is notorious for this kind of thing (and yet, they KEEP doing it anyway!!!), but they move your files to a temporary folder, and you can retrieve them again. I was SuPER lucky to find them in a different folder, and I had to spend hours moving them back where they belonged so I could back them up and save them on an external hard drive. But, seeing as I'm not rich and have to work for a living...I had to just start the process and leave to go to work, figuring that I had dodged a bullet, and I could finish backing my files up when I got home.

    However, when I got home, the system was completely frozen, even though all of the files had been moved back to their original position. And the only way to get my laptop running at ALL...was to restart. But Microsoft was still trying to FORCE its update on me, so it updated, and it erased the files AGAIN!!! But this time, it didn't put them in a temporary folder...it just deleted them all. Maybe forever. (we'll see)

    Now, I've learned my lesson from past crashes and shutdowns, and I DO back up my files every now and then just in case. But it's only like once every month or two. Do you guys have any IDEA how much I write and put together and move around in a MONTH or two???

    Bottom line...there's a chance that I might have lost almost everything. At least 450 GB worth of pictures, videos, trailers, music, notes, stories...I can't even fathom it right now. I've spent the last three days just trying to find and recover countless hours of extremely hard work and creativity, because Microsoft refuses to leave me the fuck alone, or won't ask for my permission before tearing my laptop's productivity to pieces with it's shiny new look. Or whatever their excuse was for destroying my files.

    Honestly, I've never had a devastating loss of this magnitude before. I can't even find the strength to be mad or hurt by it at this point. If anything, I see it as a chance to rebuild from scratch. And that will take time. A LONG time. But maybe it will be for the best in the long run? Who knows?

    There IS some good news, however. I've gotten better about backing up my stories, and I do have a lot of them saved elsewhere, so I can find them and the site will continue on as usual. I may have to re-edit a lot of things, but I DO have completed stories ready to go to keep you guys busy while I work my ass off to fix this as soon as possible. K? I think my articles and stuff for Imagine Magazine August will be the hardest to rewrite and replace, but I'll make it a priority. It just sucks that I lost sooooo much over something so unnecessary!

    I DO have many of my stories saved though, my emails are fine, if any of you guys sent me multiple submissions for Imagine, those are still in tact as well. It will take me forever to actually figure out what I lost and what the impact of that will be. But, honestly...this is so overwhelming that I don't even have the mental capacity to even think about it right now. If I thought I could sue Microsoft for damages, I'd be a rich man right now. Because this was an outright assault that came with no warning and with directions as to what to do when they completely obliterated every file, picture, video, and random thought, that I've had saved on my computer because I trusted them to not decimate years of hard work with a needless attempt to be 'cool and hip' to cell phone mafia kids.

    I was paranoid this time about losing my data, but I guess I wasn't paranoid ENOUGH. I don't live in CONSTANT fear of having my entire hard drive erased at any moment. I guess you guys will blame ME for that. Whatever.

    Anyway, the quest to maybe salvage some of my lost files is still ongoing. I'm checking temporary and hidden files, I used Disk Driller to see if it could find anything, I'm going through every tutorial and every data recovery program that I can find. I will PAY to get my files back just as they were, but...if it turns out that they're lost forever? I guess this is just my opportunity to start all over from scratch and show you guys what I'm made of. Because I won't be defeated. Technology tries it's HARDEST...but I always come back even stronger than before. This time won't be any different.

    Still...if any of you guys have any ideas, or programs that you think might be able to help me out here...please let me know by email or in the comments below. Because I could get SO much more accomplished if I didn't have to go back and rebuild my laptop from scratch right now.

    Thanks for listening. Sorry that I've been absent since Monday. And I'll be back to speak to you soon. K? ((Hugz))

  • Hehehe, a fair critique of Mac And Me -- Mike, 12:33:26 07/12/19 Fri

    A lot of fair points. But you know, I didn't see any of that when I was a kid, I just thought it was kinda like E.T which I loved, and it kept my ass glued to the chair for 90 minutes.

    I had it on VHS for a while. It wasn't a favourite or anything, but remember watching it more than once.

    I haven't seen it in a Looong time. I wonder how I'd react to it now.

    When he talked about all the product placements (ie McDonalds, Coke, Skittles,) it's because when Spielberg made E.T, they wanted to use M&Ms, which is owned by Mars, but they wouldn't allow their product to be associated with such an "ugly creature" like E.T.

    So they used Reese's Pieces instead. And sales of them went through the roof after E.T was released.

    So I guess all these companies tried to cash in on that with Mac And Me, which (to put it nicely), didn't do quite as well as E.T did.

  • Hmm... I'm not sure how I feel about this. -- Mike, 15:07:53 07/11/19 Thu

    I do love Tom Holland, but it would have been nice to see actors cast a lot closer to the character's actual ages.

    Todd was 12 (or 14 in Earth years)

    And I've forgotten how old Viola is supposed to be, but she's about the same age as Todd.

    Yet the actors portraying them are 23 and 27.

    And their ages are quite important to the plot.

    If anyone's read the books they'll know what I mean.

    Here's a short summary:

    Todd Hewitt is the only boy left in Prentisstown, a small settlement on 'New World'--an alien planet only recently colonized by humanity. Todd is within weeks of his thirteenth birthday,this is the age in Prentisstown at which all boys 'become men'.

    (side note, their years are a little longer than ours. So 13 years old becomes 14.25 years old)

    Todd has been told that all the women and nearly all the men on New World were killed in a war with the Spackle that occurred around the time of his birth.

    The Spackle are New World's native inhabitant and are blamed for the release of the 'germ' that caused the majority of deaths and was particularly fatal to females.

    The inhabitants of Prentisstown claim that every Spackle was wiped out during the war and Todd has no reason to believe otherwise.

    As a side effect of the virus, the remaining men in Prentisstown can hear each other's (and animals') thoughts, described as an ever-present cascade of 'Noise'.

    At the beginning of the book, Todd and his dog, Manchee, discover a lone patch of silence (a 'hole in the Noise') in a local swamp. Bewildered, Todd and Manchee make their way back into town.

    When Todd explains the silence to Ben and Cillian, his adoptive parents, his Noise accidentally projects the discovery to the entire town. Ben and Cillian mysteriously reveal they have been planning Todd's escape from Prentisstown for nearly his entire life. The two men immediately force him to leave Prentisstown, with just a satchel of supplies and Manchee to accompany him.

    Todd escapes into the swamp with Manchee, and discovers the source of the silence - a girl, who lacks Noise. She is the first girl Todd has ever seen, except in videos and photographs.

    I don't really know what else to say without spoiling the series. The description I lay out above all happens early on in the first book. There's some Lost In Space, Neverending Story and Hunger Games 'feel' to it. It's a great three-parter.

  • Well done UK & Northern Ireland... -- Mike, 14:19:44 07/09/19 Tue

    The UK government has just voted in favour of same-sex marriage in Northern Ireland.

    It's a pretty confusing situation, at least for me, regarding NI's devolved government at the moment. I won't pretend to understand much of it.

    Perhaps there are some folks from Northern Ireland here who have a better perspective and understanding of the situation. I know that some shackers are from Northern Ireland.

    But basically, for the rest of us, the government has just voted by a strong majority to extend same-sex marriage rights, and abortion rights to citizens in Northern Ireland.

    Both were free votes for MPs, as they were viewed as a matter of conscience, and passed with resounding majorities.

    They are currently the only part of the UK which doesn't recognize same-sex marriage.

    But the Northern Ireland Assembly has already voted for same-sex marriage; it enjoys majority public support.

    The amendment would theoretically lead to an automatic change in the law within three months if the devolved government remains stalled, although the Northern Ireland minister warned it might take longer due to legal practicalities. If and when the region’s executive is revived, it can then approve or repeal the measure.

  • Ok...maybe they should stop now... -- Comicality, 23:00:49 07/07/19 Sun

    Not that "Mulan" wasn't awesome, because it certainly was! And this trailer looks amazing. But...can Disney slow down a little bit? "Dumbo", "Aladdin", "Lion King", "Mulan", "Maleficent 2"...just...let the whole live action thing breathe for a little bit. You know?

    "The Jungle Book" was great! And I haven't seen "Beauty and the Beast", but I assume it was great too. But at least there was a year or two in between movies. Relax, Disney! Endgame just made you like a BILLION dollars! Go take a vacation or something! :P

    Unless you get Noah Schnapp or something for "Pinnochio"! In which case...make that movie right away! Hehehe!

  • OMG... :( -- Comicality, 20:39:19 07/07/19 Sun

    Cameron Boyce passed away today. :(

    I guess he had some medical issues and had a seizure in his sleep. He was only 20 years old. That's so sad. I LOVE Cameron Boyce. Rest in peace...

  • I am a couple of episodes into Stranger Things. -- Mike, 11:44:33 07/04/19 Thu

    I don't really know what to say without spoiling anything about it.

    Some people don't even like to hear whether it's been good or bad.

    I have a few things to say though, so I might write a spoiler review as a reply to this post.

    That way there'll be no visible spoilers for those who haven't seen it yet.

    But I'll do that after I've completed the season.

    This is exactly why Darth Vader, Thanos, Magneto, The Joker, etc...are some of the GREATEST villains of all time!!! They're not crazy, and they're not just evil for evil's sake!They're doing what they think needs to be done. And it's a warped idea, but far from insane. How often do you get to look at the bad guy and think, "Well...he kinda has a point"?

    I love this! And I love you too, Vader! Mwah!

  • Getting kinda nervous now! Hehehe... -- Comicality, 20:18:30 07/01/19 Mon

    So I'm putting a little extra work into the debut chapter of "The Plateau" tonight! I always get a little shaky before doing something new. But that's what the challenge was all about, so I'm buckling up for whatever may come of this. So far, I've got three chapters done...to e released once a week throughout July...and we'll see how it goes!

    I've got big things planned for this story, but it's magic and monsters and a whole new mythology to play around with, stuff that I've never really written before. So I'm gonna cross my fingers and hope for the best. Wish me luck! And I'll see you on the 4th! XD

  • Imagine Magazine Q & A Question 7/1 -- Comicality, 19:19:35 06/30/19 Sun

    You can easily see them from a distance. You know...the ‘beautiful people’. Or...at least what is recognized as being aesthetically beautiful. Everybody is somebody else’s dream boy or dream girl, no matter what. But despite the varying tastes that exist within the eye of the beholder...there seems to be a certain status of beauty that seems to be agreed upon with the social majority. And our question is...how does this affect how you treat these people, or how they treat you?
    Think about it...are you nicer to someone who you find extremely cute? Do you make their needs a priority in your life? Do you rush in to make sure that they’re happy? If you looked the way they do...do you think that your life would be any different than it is right now?
    Or maybe you’re on the other side of the fence. Maybe you’re the beautiful one. Do you feel eyes on you when you go outside? Do you feel privileged or admired in any way? Is beauty a blessing, or a curse?
    Feel free to be honest about this, because I’d really love to hear your thoughts on this. Are the beautiful strangers of the world put on a pedestal and worshiped by the majority of normal society? Even when that beauty is only skin deep? (I know some real HOTTIES that are complete assholes! Hehehe, so...no thank you!)
    Share your thoughts with us! Either put them in the reply section below, or you can email them to me at Comicality@webtv.net if you want to put your two cents in or respond anonymously! Thanks in advance! And I’ll seezya sooon!

    If you guys want to add your two cents to any one of the 'Q & A' sessions for future issues of Imagine Magazine, we'd LOVE to hear your input and your personal stories on the forum! Feel free to attach your screen name, or do so anonymously! Drop by this forum OR Imagine’s NEW "Inner Visions" forum on the 1st and 15th of every month for a brand new topic of conversation! We look forward to hearing more from you! :)

  • ::Pokes the forum with a stick:: -- Mike, 14:20:31 06/28/19 Fri

    Sorry, didn't mean to wake ya! :P

    I've been checking out Good Omens on Amazon. It's really funny, in a Monty Python sort of way. Plus it has David Tennant playing the Devil, so I was sold on it right away.

    I'm only about a third of the way through the series so far, so I can't vouch for all of it, but so far it's been really funny.

    And hey a few wackos have protested over it, so you know it must be interesting.

    20,000 signed a petition for Netflix to cancel the show.

    ......It's made by Amazon Prime

    And it's already been produced and released. The whole mini-season.

    Amazon and Netflix had a little fun with it.

    Amazon said it would cancel Stranger Things if Netflix would cancel Good Omens. XD

Thank you all for being the life changing events that have brought me to where I am today! I, honestly, don't know who I'd be right now without you!

    You guys have turned a frightening, first time, submission from an amateur author to Nifty...to a website, multiple forums, an online magazine, chatrooms, Paypal donations, an army of ebooks Amazon.com...and some of the best friends that I've ever made in my life! Thank you!

  • Imagine Magazine Q & A For 6/15 -- Comicality, 03:24:31 06/15/19 Sat

    Public displays of affection! They can range anywhere from a hug, to a kiss on the cheek or the lips, or just holding hands. And then...hehehe, well, maybe some people get lost in the moment and start grinding on your living couch during a party! Hehehe, it happens! I've seen it!

    So what are your thoughts on public displays of affection? Primarily in the LGBTQ community. Is it a moment of pride and sugary sweet feelings for all who witness it? Or does it make you uncomfortable? Maybe even jealous? If it was you, how would you feel about it? Do you feel comfortable making out in front of other people? If not...how come? And if so...how much is too much?

    We're talking public displays of affection here! Let us know your thoughts on this! Please don't feel shy about putting your two cents in. Somebody out there might just need to hear what YOU have to say! So chime in when you get a chance! We'd love to hear from you! :)

I get all light headed and fuzzy, and I start squirming, and I'm trying to follow the story and the dialogue but I can't stop drifting off and daydreaming. Do I wanna gaze into those stunning bright blue eyes, or do I want to kiss those dreamy pink lips? My eyes keep going back and forth between the two and I completely lose track of what's going on. LOL!

    I think I liked "American Exit" though. It's hard to remember. I don't know what it is, but that boy gets me all turned upside down. ::Blush::

  • Has anyone here seen Chernobl? -- Mike, 10:26:33 06/07/19 Fri

    I heard about the miniseries a while ago. But the subject didn't really pique my interest. I even thought it was a documentary.. which it kind of is, but a dramatization of the events.

    Anyway, I've heard nothing but praise for the series. Some have even said it's better than other insane popular series like GOT and Breaking Bad.

    I can't imagine it being better than BB. Breaking Bad was the best produced TV show of all time, in my opinion.

    I've never seen anything else come close. It's not my favourite show. But the series was consistently excellent throughout. Great production. Great acting. Fantastic writing....

    OK, I'm getting carried away. This isn't about Breaking Bad! :P

    Still, I checked out the trailer to see if it took my fancy, and it does look really good. So I'm going to check it out.

    Has anyone else here seen it yet? If so, what did you think?

  • Black Mirror season 5 now streaming on Netflix -- Mike, 09:30:41 06/05/19 Wed

    I had no idea it was going up today. I knew it was coming but either forgot or we weren't given a date.

    I do love this show. It's different to everything else on TV, and this year's return of the Twilight Zone was such a disappointing return.

    Two maybe 3 decent episodes out of 10? (Sigh) :/

    Let's hope all 3 Black Mirror episodes are killer cause I'm still disappointed about this being a short season, as well.

So, naturally...I spent days, weeks, months, and years, binge reading everything that I could at a ravenous pace! Gobble gobble gobble, yumm yumm yumm!!! Hehehe!

    But, after a while...fatigue DOES begin to set in. It's inevitable. There comes a time when erotic stories become repetitive, predictable, maybe even stale in their content. If it hasn't happened to you yet...it will. It happened to me. That's why I started writing my own stories in the first place.

    So...when it comes to reading stories online (Mine included, of course)...have you really seen it all? Are you getting a bit jaded with the idea of scrolling through a collection of stories by a variety of different authors...only to find the same tropes over and over again?

    The sexy sleepover? The blond haired/blue eyed love interest? The 'underdog gets the love of a boy that's out of his league'? The 'best friend with benefits' scenario? The slim athlete with the sixpack is secretly gay? Or maybe the guy who who pretends to hate me so much has really been in love with me the whole time? Hehehe, if you're reading 100 different stories a week...you're going to run into similarities. And those similarities will turn into cliches. Finding something new and surprising will become increasingly difficult, but there's only so many stories to tell.

    So, what 'formulas' do you find yourself running into, time and time again, while reading stuff online? What are you tired of seeing all the time? What do you want to see in the stories you enjoy instead? Give us your thoughts for a future issue of Imagine Magazine! We'd love to hear from you!

    Take care! And thanks in advance!

  • Chatroom visit! XD -- Comicality, 06:14:43 05/31/19 Fri

    So I have a few days off in a row this week!And I want to spend some time with you guys again! I'm going to the new Discord chatroom for an hour or two on Wednesday, June 5th, at 7 PM my time! (Chatterbox Discord Chatroom) So if you want to join the party and say hello and have a good time with us, feel free! Try it out ahead of time and get used to it, as messages get a bit hectic when the whole family is there at once! But it'll be fun. And I'd love to get back in touch with you guys! MWAH! Miss you much!

    I know that I get emails from you all the time, but it's so much more fun to be able to talk to everybody at once in real time. So, I'll seezya then! Cool? Bring your 'cuteness' with you! :P

    See you there!

    THIS WEEK'S CHALLENGE: - "Mixed Messages"! This week, Jimmy has a bit of a new challenge for you all! This week, he wants you to post two songs...with titles that are the exact opposite of one another! If one song is Buster Pondexter’s ‘Hot Hot Hot’...then the other song can be ‘Cold As Ice’ by Foreigner! Whatever you come up with, just make sure both songs are giving conflicting messages from one another! (Examples are in the reply below! And my personal choices on the new Inner Visions board are different from the ones you'll see here!)

    Post at LEAST two songs! No more than FOUR! Happy hunting! And Jimmy will see you next week!

    (Please put all video embeds in the reply below to prevent the board from slowing down.)

  • This was fun. -- Mike, 09:53:22 05/30/19 Thu

    I love how topics like this really make me think.

    The world's changed so much recently, imagine talking to someone from the early 1800s, before trains, planes and automobiles. Indoor electricity. Television and the internet.

    And then trying to explain to them all the things that's going to happen in the next two centuries.

    Now imagine someone from the 23rd century trying to do the same for us. And worse cause the rate of progress is speeding up.

    But we're assuming we're still going to be around in two hundred years, and the jury is out on that.

    I've just seen the new GFD chapters up in the Library!
    Going to enjoy reading them tonight.

    Thanks Com! ((hugs))

    It's nice to see the elders getting some love in these reactions, too.

    Some of the colourised photos look a little too "colourful", but many turned out very nice, and they brought out a lot of emotions from some of reactors.

    I think my generation was the first generation to have colourised photos. My parents are mostly black and white, even some of my older sibs have mostly black and white photos of themselves when they were kids.

    My childhood photos, especially those from the 1980s, are coloured, but you can tell it was still new technology, cause the colours look pretty off. It was much better by the 90s, during my teens.

    Of course colour photography's been around far longer, but most family photos weren't taken in colour until much later.
