Something enlightening happened to me along the tracks of the Trans-Siberian. Awaiting departure from Sverdlovsk station, I was in my seat, reading an English-translated copy of 'Crime and Punishment'. Gratifyingly, I discovered the 1938 edition inside a used bookshop in Yekaterinburg.
ACME HQ, San Francisco, CA
The second floor of Accolade consisted almost entirely of multi-purposed function rooms; each room was segregated by soundproof partitions which could be removed to create a huge, exhibition hall-sized venue for larger events.
A pair of black pumps graced the rich...

For the rest of the meal, she was quiet. The food came and went, and both of them declined dessert. Chase because he didn’t like them and his guest, well, because she wasn’t feeling it.
He was terrible with smalltalk, so he...

Tarragon, St. Paul’s Bay, Malta
Chase Devineaux took a flight from San Francisco to Milan, a train to Naples, a car to Salerno and then boarded a boat to St. Paul’s Bay in Malta. Granted, he took the long route, but he...
It’s funny how things work out
thought Chase Devineaux to himself with a wry smile.
When he retired from ACME 15 years ago he certainly did not foresee himself as a wold class winemaker, cruising down the A84 in a custom built Black Porsche Cayman.
A brief twinge of melancholy hit home as he...

Ivy Monaghan, supervised as ACME Securities completed their set up of a basic monitoring studio. She was in a junior-suite directly above the Copacabana Palace's Golden Room, where suspected drug cartel leader Barbas Chuate was said to...
I need to talk to some one please. I ... I just got violated ... my home. The screen door burst in. The cops hauled off the man. Very scared, very scared. Having a hard time calming down. phone someone? Skype? Need an ear. Still scared.
I was eating dinner, watching a streaming show and suddenly he rips open my door insisting his life is in danger and insisting he get into my place. I refused and refused but did call 911 as requested. Then he damaged my screen door trying to get in and I feared him destroying more so I opened it. The guy was heavily high on something. I heard one officer ask him if he was on meth. But while I was waiting for the police to show up, I convinced him to get out of my home and go into the laundry room across from where I live. Mister insane really thought people were outside ready to murder him. San Leon is not a crime infested place. Four cop cars showed up and for some reason the fire department. The police instantly put him in handcuffs and lead him to the first car to start questioning him.
The next morning, I'm still shaken. After the cops hauled him off and after talking with my landlady about what happened & my insurance. That's when I popped in here last night to only have a long chat session with the other online friend. Progressive said they'll be calling me by the end of today to talk about the claim. I know they're talking with the PD to hear any details I some how missed telling them about, first. The person I was Skyping with last night. I don't think I've really brought them up here mini-blogging when posting Loaded Stone pages. We're in a collab project together with him in the lead. He's making a videogame and I'm providing additional graphics to it.
I hope your insurance treats you fairly and more can be done to prevent this from happening again. And you working with someone on a video game is great news. I love the developmental side of game design(when it isn’t corrupted by incompetent management) and would love to hear details on the game when they are available.
For the longest time I thought this was under the radar intentionally but I noticed when he and I were talking on Skype, he now is on YouTube showing the game we've both been working on. It's name is Pig Tail and if you like I'll post up a link to that video but I know for a fact it's Select Zone screen is different now because a new one has been made by me, he likes. Everything you see in the video is still what he's put in. The guy is really multi-talented. I'm about to start testing soon a game he wants to release named Chronos. Back to the development notes. I proposed a villain that impressed him so much it's going to be used as one of Pig Tail's bosses. Picture 3D dulled down to a homage to 16-bit, a tornado of bones with a wolf-like skull at it's highest point.
Is everybody ready for Saint Patrick's day? I remember in school being pinched real hard if you forgot your green. Then one year I got the bright idea of telling people my eyes were green. People claimed that didn't count and that was cheating. I don't think it was.
