Hey everyone! I have spent the past few years writing on various livejournal accounts, and I have just recently made a website to organise all the work I have done in the past three years. I guess it's my first real attempt at presenting my writing in a serious way. This is really not intended as spam! But if anyone is curious, and would like to read some of my words, thoughts, ideas on life; I'm very interested in hearing any kind of feedback you may have to share!

Just words flashing through my mind, like television to the senses, and by hand of creativity, letting go to waves of emotion, and offering life what I see of its mystery.  http://www.sidrichmond.com

Thanks so much! Cheers!

If I don't then I'll be July or August before I update again.

Blues4Kali- A Cult Classic for the End Times [07 Feb 2007|05:12am]


What will Winter Solstice bring in 2012? ...an instant of Karma? ...an ethereal spiral dance of the collective soul? ... cosmic judgment leveled against civilization's expanse? ...destruction of the world as we know it? ...a chance for a new start? ...the rise and the revenge of the Goddess? or simply another day in the life of paranoia? These are the false prophesies that your pastor warned you about!
Reality Exchange Program
"Makes DMT seem like a whip-it."

Crazy Bear said there'd be days like this. As usual, no one believed him. Now, all I want to know is: where IS that lifeboat, and how DO I ditch this ship of fools, without any of these bliss ninnies noticing that I'm already gone?
Captain, my ass. We are equal in this sea of madness.
That iceberg is looking awfully big.

New Age Metaphysical Books Amana Mission is on a quest to save the world, and the only problem is, she can't remember why she got involved with such an obvious scam in the first place. Jesus saves. Christ. What a loser.
Kali kills first, and recycles later.
Hitchhikers, load up for a ride to the Other Side. You may wish you had gone Greyhound.
"What the...?"
*A cranky band of prankster peace warriors who absolutely cannot resist messing with each other's minds, no matter the cost.
*Cocky alchemy-dabbling quantum surfers, navigating the Ethersphere with hand-held computers, switching timelines to find a better party vibe and swap tips about the best temporary toilets for use as interdimensional portals.
*A burnt-out visionary hippie millionaire on a mission from Gaia to build a better "communitopia" by underwriting a convoy carrying telepathic priestesses.
*A wheelchair-bound mindpilot propelling a crystal-powered Seed Bank toward the post-Apocalyptic Garden, with psychic precision...and a predilection for high-velocity extreme driving.
*Hermaphrodite time-jumper fleeing a fate worse than death.
*Anarchist ghettoes where anything goes-except escape.
*Ancient Principals vying like sweatsoaked carpetbaggers for our loyalty as the Final Vote is tallied.
*Long-haired security patrols collecting a cannabis tribute tax from all pilgrims to the Valley of Fun.
*And an underground meat mafia bringing a black magic revival to a bloodless dreamworld gone bland.
All brought together by a secret psychedelic superdrug that tunes users in to reality through the eyes of another archetypal avatar inhabiting a different state of space and time. Mahayana made easy. Budding Buddha natures are running amuck on a virtual superhighway where all roads lead to the Bo tree and singularity.
Twenty-first century Tantra is about more than sex, drugs, and rock and roll.Confronting the Karma of every wasted breath is only the first step.
Welcome to the End Times. Kali awaits. She already knows who you are.
Do you?
The 21st century counterculture is even weirder than it appears on the surface. This is not your mommy’s MTV Road Rules. Satire Parody and Humor.

Ride along on this mesmerizing, metaphor-packed bus trip toward ecstasy and enlightenment, as three real-time guides-Amana, Sissy, and Deva, let you in on what they learned when they asked what It was really all about, after all.
Become them for a multilevel metafictional tour of infinity and awaken yourself to the miracle-a-minute magic of mighty Mother Kali!

A Heart of Darkness [06 Jan 2007|03:54pm]

Hello, I'm not sure if this is allowed, but I've been a long-time lurker of this community and I was wondering if anyone could help.
I have to do a compare and contrast essay for Heart of Darkness' Kurtz, and the Kurtz of Apocalypse Now. Kurtz of AN was based on Joseph Conrads book but I'm having trouble trying to come up with good arguments. So far I have Reputation (with charisma, genius, and leadership) and Fate(corruption, death, insanity) as two topic similarities, but I am having trouble coming up with a paragraph on how they are different.

If anyone could help, with examples of either Kurtz, especially HOD's I'd very much appeciate it. Thankyou!

[ mood | lonely ]

I just joined this community so I don't know exactly what goes on here but if it's not old news, I'd like to hear reviews on The Da Vinci Code. I've read it a while back and now I'm re-reading it again, purely because it's one of my favorite books. Maybe some thoughts?

Hello . I am author Mehmet Unver. My blog address is "http://mehmetunver.livejournal.com"/ I am planning to introduce my published books in recent years and my new projects. I wish to add a counter to my blog. I have read all FAQ's and other user recommendations but I could not manage to add a counter. It seemed so complicated to me. Can someone advise me a simple way of adding a counter in my live journal blog. Thanks in advance.

Holidays! [14 Apr 2006|12:16pm]

[ mood | excited ]

Ok, I've got a week off uni and want to read some "classics" (I use that term loosely).
I want something not too heavy as my holiday is a break from a 40-hr a week acting school, so I want something relatively painless to read (ie. probably not too keen to tackle War and Peace).

Here is my list of possibilities..

- Ulysses (is it humanly possible to read this in one week and still have time to do other things?)
- The Sound and the Fury
- Rebecca
- The New York Trilogy
- The Satanic Verses
- Brave New World
- 100 Years of Solitude
- A Confederacy of Dunces
- Fahrenheit 451

Any comments on these specifically - your thoughts, reviews, which I should prioritize - or any other MUST-READS that you think I'd enjoy and could get through quite easily in a week?

Merci d'avance!

(I also have to read Zen in the Art of Archery for school before I get back. Anyone read this?)
