The Goode Fyght — Chapter the Seventh

| August 7, 2017

Welcome back fellow Traveller to this chapter of The Goode Fyght where today we will begin our look at energy and the economics of action as they apply to aging. Right up until you die, you will find that your only option is to keep getting older, just as Nature intended. Some try to pretend […]

The Point of it All

| June 18, 2017

I first met feisty grappler Lukas William Whynacht, second in line to the Chieftainship of Clan LFM, two years ago today, under joyous although more formal and less than relaxing conditions where neither a Man nor his Wife could order a decent drink to toast a bairn’s arrival. It’s also Father’s Day, Goode Reader, as […]

The Grand Old Duke of York (He Had Ten Thousand Men)

| January 21, 2017

Denying the claims a Buckingham Palace spokesman told us, “All allegations in this matter are false, and records will clearly show these men were neither up nor down.” Last year I shared an article to Facebook titled Duke of York strenuously denies he had ten thousand men, and the sharing caused no small amount of […]

A Long Winter’s Night 2016 – Day 4: Pickled Bollocks, a Tale of Hospitality

| December 24, 2016

Pickled Bollocks By LFM To speak the sins deserving death Calls not for but a single breath, And of those few, that hated most Falls hard on who betrays his host. ‘Twas in the dead of Winter’s grasp My callused hand released the hasp Upon my door near end of day To find a man […]

Dark Sentiments Season 7 – Day 22: All Deaths Matter

| October 22, 2016

The rangy, solitary Eastern Coyote of my youth was not the animal that bears the name today. Hunted, trapped, poisoned, and otherwise hounded out of Nova Scotia and New Brunswick in the 1970’s, there came an interval of Human forgetting while the Nature of the Coyote and Man’s conceit forged something new. For in time […]

Dark Sentiments Season 7 – Day 20: Up the Back Passage

| October 20, 2016

Inspired by a narrow channel of water that separates a local island from the mainland, and that is subject to remarkable reversals in current that may catch the traveller unawares, The Back Passage is a tragedy of sorts. As one more point of note, the actual Back Passage does lead to a Distinguishing Point, even […]

Dark Sentiments Season 7 – Day 19: Hotrod Bristle

| October 19, 2016

Hotrod Bristle was inspired by the song Hotrod Lincoln, recently brought to mind by something revealed to me by the Esteemed Jay Heathman, which makes it partially his fault. The remaining share of the inspiration lies with the Woman I’m wed to, and the picture above that’s making the rounds right now, about which she […]

Dark Sentiments Season 7 – Day 11: An Intervention

| October 11, 2016

Welcome back Goode Reader. Please take your ease, for I ask your indulgence in what at first may appear to be a politically motivated argument. As you will see, it is nothing of the sort, notwithstanding that I have been moved to act by the complexion of reactions to someone who is most decidedly and […]

Dark Sentiments Season 7 – Day 9: A Little Diversion

| October 9, 2016

All thematic threads be damned, let’s take a little side road, shall we? Believe me, you won’t be disappointed. In the past year, we’ve found Canadian singer-song writer Lindi Ortega. If you’ve never heard of her, then prepare to be delightfully educated. She’s been described as “country’s most delectable vixen”, “not-quite-saintly”, and having a voice […]

Dark Sentiments Season 7 – Day 6: Forbidden Reading

| October 6, 2016

The 1953 Ray Bradbury novel Fahrenheit 451 is set in a totalitarian future version of our world. Inspired by a combination of his love of libraries, and his coming to know in his formative years that Adolf Hitler was burning books (in concert with incarcerating and murdering intellectuals), the book tells how at first, only […]
