Celebrating a year of somewhat questionable writing advice

All this over a blog post - Its kind of a big deal Welcome to a special Anniversary Edition of Ned’s Nickel’s Worth on Writing! It was a year ago this week that the first edition of my weekly NWOW was completely overlooked heralded by Writer’s Digest as “A literary hazard cone…” and by Publisher’s Weekly as “Our measuring stick for excellent writing, if we were on the metric system.” As if that weren’t enough, I received a congratulatory email this morning from The Master of Horror® Stephen King:

I consider myself an expert on corpses, so you can believe me when I say your body of work speaks for itself.

High praise indeed.

But enough accolades! It’s time to prepare yourself. Why? Because in just a few moments I will push the button on a special remote, releasing balloons and confetti on you! That’s right! While you were sleeping, special crews (most of which were licensed, bonded and documented citizens) were busy installing compartments of spring-loaded balloons and confetti in your ceiling! And you thought it was creepy rats! Haha! So count down with me as we prepare to release balloons and confetti on 3,432 folks, some of whom don’t read this blog regularly and will be totally freaked out!  Continue reading

HUVr Board Video Claims To Show A Real Life ‘Back To The Future’-Style Hoverboard In Action

Moby, Tony Hawk, and other celebrities rocket around on the HUVr Board—a flying board billed as a real world version of the hoverboard from the Back to the Future film franchise—in this slickly produced promo video featuring Christopher Lloyd who played Emmett “Doc” Brown in the BTTF film trilogy.

According to HUVr, the board is crafted from “paramagnetic titanium” and is expected to ship in December 2014.

Funny or Die is behind HUVr, the mysterious tech company claiming to have invented the first hoverboard. The truth behind this massive viral campaign came out after a costume designer who worked on the shoot posted the experience on her online resume, which has now been removed.

PAT STALLINGS - EVERYBODY KNOWS

PAT STALLINGS - EVERYBODY KNOWS

Absolutely NOTHING is known about Pat Stallings, and apparently this is her only release. A real pity, as she WAILS on this red hot track from '72.

My favorite moment happens at 1:23; Pat if you're out there, drop us a line!

Arranger Wade Marcus worked with several jazz and soul artists throughout the '70's, including Stevie Wonder, The Emotions, The Blackbyrds, and The Dramatics.

from 1972...

A digital magazine for the "man's man". We scour the internet to find the manliest stuff around.

Who is this Man's Man??  First off, we are avid outdoorsmen.  If not in the office slaving away, you'll find us on our local rivers fly fishing, rafting, or hiking around in the mountains.  We are not professional bloggers (we actually get out into the outdoors).  That being said.....we aren't English majors either.  So please excuse any poor, grammatical hygiene. -more-

Anaconda Bus Optical Illusion

 Anaconda Bus Optical Illusion
Trompe L’oeil

You have no doubt seen cars and buses with advertising painted on them before.  But this advertisement for a local zoo on the side of a public transit bus goes above and beyond.  It is really well done and almost looks like something out of a bad horror movie.  Despite the fact that the anaconda is one of the largest snakes in the world, it would be hard to believe that one could grow to the size required to crush this bus.

LOCOMENTE  |  A Crazy mind Talking about.... its Life :) Thoughts :) Passion :) and all other blah blah blah under the Sun :)

When heaven blessed...

The Sun had set. Mother Earth was enveloped with darkness. Stars were not shining above like diamonds. Crescent Moon was hiding behind the clouds, as if playing hide and seek games with me. It was now I felt as if my vision was blurred. Then, I realized… It had started raining… Suddenly!
 
Gentle breeze was replaced by a little fiercer one. I moved a little away from the railings of the lobby in fifth floor. I closed my eyes and clutched my blue and black duppatta tight. I realized that the color of my salwar suite was no different from the bluish black evening.  As the chill breeze swayed past me, a gentle smile creaked on my face. I felt as if someone was caressing me; as if someone was pampering me.
 
The touch of breeze was very resonating. It reminded me of the loving touch of my mother… Her tender hug filled with lots of love! Suddenly, a few raindrops hit me as if was kissing me…
 
I was transported to a surreal World…A World free from worries and heartbreaks… A World where heartaches cannot be felt… I was smiling when I opened my eyes… I realized that a strange serenity had injected within me. The real World seemed pleasant as ever; as if someone had cast spell with magical wand.
