flickrverse is dead

Hi Kiddos,

I think it's time to throw in the towel. flickrverse has been negelected for too long. It's time to move on.

Bye-bye, flickrverse. You were fun while you lasted.

If anyone wants to keep up with the goings on in my life, check out my livejournal at

Much love to all, Justin

There is always something inside me that wants to get out of here. Where ever here is. Move on. Move big. Do something absolute and grand.
Then there is that other part of me that wants so badly to stay here. Not move. Fat statue. Double chin.

Every time I dream big nothing happens. Am I killing myself? Do I really want to die?

No. Of course not. I have children to I love. A wife. Two cats. A dog.

And big dreams. Big big dreams.

For Mark Sandman Wherever You Are

Under Da Sea

Yes, Mark.
I feel like swimming today.

I am ready.
I am ready.

I am ready to dive down deep
down deep
deeper deeper
over my head
dive down deep
I'm ready.

The shock of cold water
stops my breath
but my heart

Pick a Fav

Well, well, well. The creative juices just may be flowin' again. Since I posted my last little posty-poo, I have been slowly reviewing flickrverses from days of yore. My goal is to pick out the ones I really like and, like, do something with them, ya' know?

I tried this once before and it didn't work out, but whatever. I am a glutton for punishment. Let's try it again: blogger to reader interaction.

If you pick 3 of your favorite flickrverses with an explaination why you like them, you will get a FREE copy of my upcomimg flickrverse fanzine (I am not kidding about that). Leave your picks in a comment and give me some way to find you so I can send you a copy of your prize.

SPECIAL BONUS: Pick three of your favorites w/ reasons why and also tell me three of your least favorites (once again with reasons why) and recieve a free pre-press copy of my upcoming, yet to be written or published children's book (I am not kidding about that either. It's in the works).

Have at it folks. Submissions are due by Thanksgiving 2006. Fanzine to be published in time for Xmas. Childrens book may never be published, but I hope to have something cool by New Year's.

Oh My God! He posted something!

If what you feel about me
rests upon the turning of a phrase,
We are within the hollow of a crime that never pays,
wasting all our days
in a thousand different ways
just to die together, side-by-side,
never knowing who the body is that shares in our demise.

Can the architect contrive a space where love occurs? not occupied simply but lived?
Could they, for example,
fashion apparatus focus early morning sun
on note left from lover reluctantly departed? (“Coffee ready. Just press ‘On’.)

Could they, for example,
make floorboards creak invocation night she could try to sneak with pie fail miserably you both die laughing
invocation of forgotten tune a delicous toothsome moment long past?

Could they, for example,
may see us making love just because we can and I just don’t care?

Could they, for eample,
make it be its been a long time since everything has felt so right?
