Through The Shattered Veil Of Self and Imposed Torment, a poem.
I have seen the blackest pits beyond oblivion and there is naught but hopeless abandon. I know what it is to look into the eyes of Madness.
Through the veil that separates our realm of existence from what lies beyond, I fell.
There was a creature there, a horror, that seared my mind with its image. I became its thrall. A subservient shell.
I allowed it to bend my will with the chilling touch of torment and I was content in this.
No longer. I became as solid as rock, I became as destructive as water, I became the Earth and I had fury.
I looked at the horror and uttered, “watch that dead biscuit.” It looked, and I was free.

I did a terrible thing. It was earlier in the week, you were at a friend’s house; I was a little tipsy and lonely. I know alcohol isn’t an excuse but I keep coming back to it. I keep saying it to myself, “it was the alcohol… the alcohol… the alcohol…” I know I just need to admit it to myself as much as I need to come clean to you, so here goes.
Uncanny X-Men #542
This review can be found in its original format here.
Uncanny X-Men #542 is the third issue of Kieron Gillen’s current run on the series. It is tied in to Marvel’s Fear Itself meta-plot. I’m much too poor to read every book Marvel puts out, so I don’t have the whole picture of what Fear Itself is about. Fear not! Using context clues, I’ve deduced that a mysterious baddie has put seven Thor-like hammers about the place. The hammers make powerful guys more powerful. Fear feeds that power.
Guess who has one and is making a bee-line for X-Men HQ?
I’m writing reviews now.
I’ve started writing for a website. That’s right, someone besides myself is foolish enough to put my words on their website. What is the website? That’ll be The Phantom Zone. I’m going to keep a log of my reviews here. I figure it’ll be easier should I ever have the need to construct a portfolio.
Context. — Me.
I Am Not A Number.
Allow me to share with you a very brief, but very true, story…
The other night there, I went for a social drink with some people I met via supporting the local hockey team. It was grand. Drinking games were played, plans were hatched and chat was had.
Something happened to me though. It’s not something I talk about that openly, but I need to now. Otherwise, the story wouldn’t have a point.
