DVD drive for Robin Balzer!

Hello, friends! For those following the recent news about us (if you haven’t, simply look at the past few posts), you know that Robin will be going to a home facility soon, within the next month or so. We toured a place today that seems to be a winner. It’s safe and secure, and yet(…)

Divorce papers filed

The paperwork is done and turned in. We only had to walk across the street. It was the same place where we picked up our marriage certificate on February 7, 2003. They’ll wait 30 days before they set a court date for the judge to grant it. Afterwards, we went to the Medicaid office to(…)

Terrible news – Robin and I are parting

This is such a difficult thing to write, so please bear with me. Robin and I have been together for over 15 years, married over 11. We weren’t together long before her alcoholism was made apparent, but she stopped it… for me. But that’s when the real problems became apparent. She’d been self-medicating her bipolar,(…)

Amazon is EVIL! And here’s why:

Amazon is EVIL! And here’s why:

Down on your luck? Blame Amazon! Things have been changing a lot these past few years as the digital revolution – or perhaps “evolution” is a better word – took over nearly every moment of our lives. As one would imagine during such a radical change in industry, many businesses have refused to adapt and were(…)

Spider-Man dream last light

Spider-Man dream last light

Last night, I dreamed about a very realistic Spider-Man costume. It was right after Christmas and I’d received a number of gifts that I was happy about, like a new surround sound system that Sony came out with, but there was some other thing that I didn’t want. That other thing had brought me to(…)

The Dead Island 2 trailer is so awesome!

I admit it, the Dead Island 2 trailer floored me. It’s not because I was expecting to be disappointed. I didn’t even know it was coming out. I may have heard some mention of it and thought they were referring to Dead Island: Riptide, the sequel to the original. Well, I’m excited now, for sure,(…)

The old digital eBook vs print book debate – my thoughts

The old digital eBook vs print book debate – my thoughts

Honestly, I think people should spend less time arguing about eBook vs print, and more time reading. That said, I’ll cover points I’ve heard way too many times and offer my opinion. If there are other points not covered, be sure to tell me in the comments and I’ll try to update to address them.(…)

S.D. Hintz takes on White Castle!

S.D. Hintz takes on White Castle!

It looks like somebody on Twitter had a craving: I love the things that come out of S.D. Hintz‘s brain! Even wilder, White Castle must have liked it because they retweeted it to their 57,000 followers. Nice one, buddy! In other news: I unfriended and unfollowed Facebook and Twitter last week, in case others have noticed(…)

My take on some recent events.

In 1983, a dark, disturbing Charles Bronson movie came out called 10 to Midnight. I was seven years old and believe it or not, my father took me to see it in the theater. I enjoyed it. For those unfamiliar with it, it’s about a college guy who gets sick of being rejected by all(…)

5-20 Recap

Well, I spent a good chunk of today traveling to see my cognitive behavior therapist, which went well. I got to brag about how I was able to stop a seizure on my own yesterday. It was after twenty minutes but still.. yay! The only problem is most of time, I can’t concentrate well enough(…)

An Argument at Wal-Mart

So I got into an argument the other day with a bread man at Wal-Mart. We were picking up several loaves of Great Value brand enriched wheat bread for the month. I love it! It’s just over a dollar a loaf; it’s a lot of bread in each; it’s soft, tasty, and if you look(…)

Nash vs Ash

Nash vs Ash

I’ve been slowly cleaning and organizing forever now. It’s pretty much never-ending, lol, especially since I can only do it for a few minutes at a time. But I have this area that’s especially messy because it’s where clutter goes while cleaning other areas. You know how it goes: sacrifice one spot for others. Anyway,(…)

I had such a METAL dream last night.

I had several vivid dreams last night, but I have to share this one in particular. I’ll keep it short. I was at at this massive concert with no seating to allow for mosh pits. The location was out in the middle of nowhere. I’m talking a blink-you-miss-it desert ghost town. The outside of the(…)

What’s in my soup?

I just had a yummy bowl of soup with lots of crackers. While working on one spoonful, I realized there was something in my mouth that I didn’t recognize. Was there supposed to be dumplings in this soup? I thought. Possibly. I don’t know. Well, whatever it is, I’m eating it. Chew. Chew. Gulp.

Saying “Goodbye” to a dear friend.

Saying “Goodbye” to a dear friend.

A very close friend to the family has spent the last week going through the final stages of life. He left us at about 3am this morning. I’ve sat with him and said my farewells, well, more than once because I couldn’t stand to leave his side. And I know a lot of people’s kneejerk(…)

Bedknobs and Broomsticks

Bedknobs and Broomsticks

Fun Fact: Fun fact: Bedknobs and Broomsticks is what first got me interested in the occult. I thought if I could make contact with Astaroth, I’d be able to play games with cartoon animals on a tropical island. Instructions on speaking with Astaroth, Lucifer, Beelzebuth, and others can be found here: http://khpbooks.com/grand-grimoire/

Um… sleep, please. Also, some breakthrough info.

I saw my neurologist a few weeks ago and I expressed my ongoing concerns about memory loss and lack of concentration. I understand it’s something I’ll probably always have to deal with, but I’m always hoping there’s a way to improve. He mentioned stopping Ambien again because it causes problems with exactly those two things.(…)

On offending people these days.

I love social media posts that complain of how much people get offended “nowadays”. Folks act like it’s just now a thing to watch what you say in public, as though any sort of cussing didn’t get you locked away in a sanitarium not so terribly long ago. At least these days, people are more(…)

Little House on the Prairie – little known fact

There was a lot of original editing done on the Little House on the Prairie series. Whenever Charles Ingalls would have a stern talk to some douchebag, he would then take them out for a horse ride and shoot them. They cut out the shootings, though, when they realized they wanted it to be a(…)

Exciting Typography

Okay, this is hilarious (to me). I was just reading a review on Goodreads – it was for someone else’s book, not mine. I don’t go there, lol. It was a nice review for the most part so I’d rather not point it out to embarrass the person or the author, but there’s this one(…)

Thoughts on uber-gory covers for horror books

I’m unsure why this subject popped into my head today, but I thought I’d finally put it down in my blog. More and more, we see horror books with incredibly gory or disgusting covers. Some are meant to shock or grab your attention and I get that, especially when you’re brand new and trying to(…)

KHP Arcade – IT’S ALIVE!

In my last post, I gave some details behind the last incarnation of KHP Arcade. Well, I’ve been working really hard (as hard as I’m able around seizures, etc) and I finished it just in time for this weekend! Building websites come pretty easy for me, and this is something I was really excited about,(…)

KHP Arcade will live again!

Last year, I’d kicked off a project on the KHP site for the fun of it. I didn’t expect a huge reception but I wanted to offer something people could enjoy. It was a nice flash arcade site. Sure, there are plenty of them out there, but so many are loaded with viruses and popups,(…)
