WHY, YES, IT IS ALL ABOUT ME
I have a sixth sense about these kinds of things, so I can tell when I’m right. As an impartial observer I can report that this happens about 99% of the time. I of course was correct when I guessed that the fiction attempt was doomed before it even got started. Believe, this kind of thing, always being right, is a burden none of you share and hence have the ability to gauge. But seriously, I think I did need the vacation. I’m a bit more inclined to see possibilities as they present themselves, as far as what to write about. Nothing earth shattering or new and unique. That boat sailed a long time ago. Which is why I don’t really feel I can go back to the Bison Survival Blog. It would have just embarrassed all of us if I thought I could keep it fresh and alive. It was time to hang it up. Best to just let my mind meander and talk about whatever ( with of course a prepper/survivalist slant to it ). Today we talk about writing. Not a lot most of you care about, but I’ll throw a few tidbits your way to keep it interesting.
NEW Bison Blog CD For Sale
I've got an actual professional to archieve and format all the old blog on a CD-ROM. I haven't got a copy of it yet, but I'm thinking this thing will be better than sliced white bread. It does cost $10 plus shipping, figure another $4 or so, which might be a bit on the higher side. But I think I'm worth it. Depending on how much the production company charges per copy, my cut will be about $5 to $6. That isn't too much to ask for over five years of work and nearly two million words of pure brilliance. Here is the link to order:http://kunaki.com/sales.asp?PID=PX00KX7Z1I
While I know I’m always right, it pisses me off when other people are also. One minion stated that I’d be back to daily posting after a short time. And it makes me mad because now I’ve proven him right. Damn! I wrote every weekday the last three weeks, even if I only posted on Wednesday. But as I’ve mulled over before, I just don’t seem to have it in me to write fiction ( I think I can write short stories, but I should definitely stay away from attempts at novels ). I was still missing the satisfaction I got from my regular writing, postulation and pontificating on the state of the world and the future. So once again I’m back, and please forgive me my waffling and indecision. I’m sure it will indeed happen again, but let’s hope a long period of time passes before that comes to pass. I get pretty stressed and anxious about what is to come and I guess sometimes it is harder to separate that from my writing than usual. When I went to weekly posting, my thoughts were “it is all almost over, we are all going to die, what the Hell is the point anymore?” That is still my feeling, but now I need to go back to using the blog as a way to try to sooth over the way off the cliff, as a distraction to myself and perhaps for others. I thought fiction was the way to go but I guess not. Besides which, I was probably going to lead down a very dark path ( in character development and plot ) which none of us, myself included, needed to see. Like a wet fart in white tennis clothes, some facts of life are best left unseen.
Over at Creekmore’s blog, there was a profoundly disturbing statement made that I must comment on. Of course, before I do, I must remind everyone that I like Creekmore, hope for the best for him, and have always felt he was like the red headed stepbrother I never had. So this should be taken with the understanding that I’m playfully disagreeing with him and there is no real hate behind my outburst. He was heaping an embarrassing amount of praise on his Wolf Pack, claiming that his blog was all about THEM, not himself. Really? Can we be a bit more obsequious? Suck up, much? Every writer writes about what they know and what they feel. Even professional educated professors allow their prejudices show through ( I was thumbing through “A time travelers guide to medieval England”[ I think I have the title right ] and was aghast as the fool was pondering how women felt about being so abused and subjugated, phrased completely from a modern feminist viewpoint. Really? Women’s suffrage was a concern then? Or was famine and childhood death a wee bit more important to them? ). While Creekmore is trying to say, it seems to me, that he doesn’t write about his life or about what he had for dinner last night, but what I think is that the blog is about all his readers only because they mostly write the damn thing! Take this blog. Of course it is all about me! Who else am I going to write about? My ex-wife? Rawles? Isn’t this about my journey towards collapse insurance, with the assumption that you all might benefit from all my dumbass mistakes? Do I toot my own horn? All the friggin time? Of course, I’m my number one fan. Would I have the ego to assume anyone wanted to read my drivel otherwise? And let’s face it, you all suck! You all have boring suck ass lives living under the whip in suburbia. I, on the other hand, live without grid power freezing in a tin box. While living a boring life under the whip of the wife and boss. My life is much more interesting to hear about!

So, to sum up, I’m back to posting Monday through Friday, subject to revision at any time. I’ll try to talk about something marginally interesting everyday, but of course guarantee nothing. I still love you all, although I’ll still call you all Loyal Minions. It is term of endearment, not derision. Except for that asswhore that owes me $20. I’m not feeling too much love for him.
