Support Dia de los Muertos & Monster Factory and look cool while doing it!

We launched a t-shirt campaign to help raise money for CityArts Factory's 6th annual Dia de los Muertos & Monster Factory. We set the date to get the shirts for the event and we fell 12 shirt short of our printing goal :(

Please support the show by buying one of these awesome shirts! Local artist,…

Orlando Live Read

Come to the first Orlando Live Read…

Professional actors cold reading a classic movie script, complete with stage direction. No rehearsals, no staging. Based on a "table read", when actors & director get together to read a script out loud the first time, it's a great chance to see the blueprint of a movie, and a insight into how actors create characters.

It will give the audience another way to experience a classic film, and remind them why they love those movies in the first…

Ideology identity

Perverting the empathy revolution

This construct is not organic, it is contrived

Rather than the Fibonacci sequence

We instead have non-sense

Like forced adoption in the UK

Barbaric Social engineering

Imploding the nuclear family

Brave New World Style

Until “mother” becomes and dirty word

And “father” even fouler

Heartless faceless bureaucrats steal the infants

Of the working class and hand…

The Native American Perception of Winter Park, Fl

Isolation is like a beauty treatment, paring you down to you base elements.

It is a sense deprivation tank where you are forced to look inward, until the realization comes that all the voices you’ve been hearing are your own. Declarations that you’re not worthy or intelligent and you fancy over why you punish yourself.

The babbling children sense your discontent and look up with bright blue questioning eyes. The digital scale says you’ve dropped 40lbs. This should please you,…

The Rise of Global Neo-Feudal Fascism

This isn't done more to continue...

So I spent my breastfeeding time this morning battling several nasty internet trolls on the comments feed over the teenager shot in Ferguson. I won't bore you with the details of the story since most of you know it. I just know one thing, police are getting more and more corrupt globally. Look at Mexico where the younger vocal generation is having disappearances forced on them and mass graves for speaking out against the drug gangs…

Dreams aren't for Losers, but Grandiosity is for Loser Narcissists

Dreams know what my dreams are/ were? To marry someone who is my best friend; accomplished. Have at least 3 children; done, even at my old age. Have a Bachelor's degree and marry someone else with at least a Bachelor degree, who is now getting his Masters; check. And the big one when I was stuck in union park for nine years, to actually own a house in Winter Park. Being a Winter Park resident has been a huge boon for my family and children's…
