The Killers, Miss Atomic Bomb

I always have gripes about the Marvel Avengers Alliance game. Don’t you?

But I have to say I liked how several heroes came out at the same time with Spec Ops, Chapter 9 and the DeadPool PVP tournament. It caused much confusion. We all had to make choices – often without much support from the scholars and scribes.

That’s not a bad thing… Read the rest of this entry »

Ain’t I A Woman?

And other social media DOHs.

by Stan Faryna

Nia Long reads Sojourner Truth’s Aint I A Woman?

The contest of mice and men (The U.S. Presidential Election 2012) is finished. For now. The results are yet to be seen.

But it is not too late for the voice of women to be heard. To remind us that that responsibility falls into our caring and loving hands – responsibility to turn the world right side up again as Sojourner Truth once reminded us – women, men and children.

What decides the fate of a nation? And other social media DOHS!

November 6, 2012

What decides the fate of a nation?

And other social media DOHs.

by Stan Faryna

Stan Faryna

Enigma, Return to Innocence

Is the fate of a nation to be decided by an election?

Or is the election of a President (or Government) the poorest and most useless exercise of human will, noble ambition, and highest hope?

I don’t know…

Maybe, you know. Maybe, you can explain it and make me a believer in what now seems to me to be… but the greatest of mouse traps – a mouse trap for nothing less than the Abolition of Man.

My apprehensions at this moment are reflected by the same indecision, division, and doubt which prevents commentators to preclude a victor. History, tonight, is a mystery to us.

God, however, makes no mistakes.

The Divine decides the fate of a nation (no amount of campaign spend shall contradict the Divine authority) and God’s will is spoken through the human heart – tonight, we know these signs include our own fears and worry.

I am moved to prayer – not to the election booth. I am moved to repent and, more importantly, to an examination of conscience. My own and for a nation that searches it’s heart for the sign of Jonah.

Meanwhile, I will reflect on The Final Speech of the Great Dictator. I invite you to join me too.

Marvel Avengers Alliance DeadPool Season

Editor’s Note:

The last two weeks have been hell. I’ve been working like a mad man on my science fiction story about the end of the world (and everything) while trying to keep up with the Marvel Avengers Alliance game – shooting for DeadPool and doing Spec Ops for two accounts. And then there are all the other appointments I kept – as a father, lover and friend, as a member of the Omega guild, various blogging communities, and online strategy discussions, AND, last but not least, as a techno-bohemian.

Oh – I also turned 43. Feel free to congratulate me in the comments…

Self Defeat

Something is not going where you want it to go. Not fast enough.

It’s not taking you where you expected to get.

Social Media. Blogging. Your job. Your relationships. Whatever.

You have dreams and vision, but the long road of hope smells like fingers – as Bill Dorman has said.
