As you can imagine, it’s not safe for work. In fact, it’s not safe for home, so it’s best you take your laptop box out into a garden or perhaps a disused quarry and listen to it then. Your trip will be worthwhile, because it’s quite fantastic. Also – expect a Boy Scouts Of America version in a couple of weeks, according to reports and my swear-addled brain.
You may already be somewhat familiar with this story, as previously reported upon by ChillbearLatrigue, our resident man of the badge (police badge, that is, if you’re a slow one) in his delightfully satirical piece, Suspicious Sombreros. Read the rest of this entry →
The more sober astute amongst you may have noticed something slightly strange about Wordsmoker for the past couple of weeks. No, it’s nothing to do with us being bought up by Viacom in a deal literally worth dollars. No – there’s been a distinct absence of me. Long boring story short – my stupid depression caught up with me yet again, so I retreated to my bed to spend some quality time crying and mulling over possible methods of suicide it turns out I’m too scared to attempt.

Here are the entries: Read the rest of this entry →
The eruption of the volcano under the Eyjafjallajökull glacier in Iceland spewed an ash cloud that crippled air travel throughout most of Europe for a week.

It’s time once again for that weekly reminder that you need to post your entry in that weekly contest we call the Micro-Fiction Roundup. Since Chillbear put it so eloquently last week, I’ve simply copied and pasted his last MFR reminder and crossed out the now incorrect details and replaced them with the new, correct information.
