House Fire

The firefighter's destruction drips on the blind congregation.
Leading only further into his dark temptations.
Clean made old. Young made dirty.
The waste puffing his embers.
Bleeding through the tips of his heaven's zen.
Ringing the alarm silently overheard.
By the secret keepers.
The shame chains.
The sillouettes of a family.

Most Exciting thing Since the A/C Got Cleaned

I told the cops that were waiting down in the lobby tonight that they were the most exciting thing to happen to SW since they cleaned out the air conditioner. I guess somebody called 911 instead of 0901 or something to call the UK and the cops showed up in the lobby to check on who dialed 911 and hung up. When I went to leave, they were yelling up at me to let them into suite 200. So we went around the office and looked around to see if somebody needed help. We ended up going into CS and found the culprit. That's when I told the cops how exciting it was for us since the A/C thing. But anyway, I ended up missing my bus from the whole adventure and the cops even offered to give me a ride for helping them. No way. I wasn't interested. The End.

AudioBook of the Week: Stephen King’s The Gunslinger: The Dark Tower, Book 1 (revised & expanded)

For those of you who are interested, my audiobook of the week is Stephen King’s The Gunslinger: The Dark Tower, Book 1 (revised & expanded)

This is the first installment of Steven King's fantasy series, The Dark Tower, which follows the story

of the Gunslinger Roland, the equivalent of an Arthurian knight in the world King has created, and his quest to reach the Dark Tower in order to make the world right again.

This installment tells the story of Roland's search for a mysterious stranger who may be able to help Roland find the Dark Tower. It is lon

g on atmosphere and short on action. Therefore, fans of Steven King's horror works will find this book a distinct change of pace. However, the book will not disappoint you if you try it, especially if you are a fan of fantasy series such as the Lord of the Rings. Furthermore, you will find in later books that elements of King's horror world also exist in Roland's world, and therefore, to have a full understanding of King's horror villains, you have to read this series.

The Gunslinger offers several intriguing views of Roland's dying world. The book is not devoid of action; there is a dramatic shoot out for shadowy

reasons which one hopes will be better explained in the concluding volumes of the work. There is a lost child who provides the first direct evidence that Roland's world is connected to our own, and there is the introduction to Roland himself, a man who is capable of fantastic violence but still comes across as human and quite possibly kind (a fact which becomes more clear in later books). - Adam Shah
