Fiction

I don’t blog fiction all that much, but sometimes I just get an idea for a story and start typing.

The Conversation Room

The Conversation Room

You see an online virtual mall filled with flashy storefronts and top notch animated advertisements everywhere. You walk down the pathway in awe at how many options there are to spend money on a seperate universe. You see a new store is opening up where the old bookstore used to be. The Conversation Room doors open soon. Nobody knew what it was....

Day 1. Orientation.

Day 1. Orientation.

I heard a distinct Bing sound and that was the first time I was aware of anything.  Everything was black and I couldn't really feel inside myself. It's a hard to describe a concept unknown to anyone. If a blind person asked you what blue was you would describe things that were blue, which would be useless. I just was. A thought hearing a ding....

He was was the caretaker of the town watchtower where Mr Pabst lived. The two were best friends for longer than I remembered, and either one or the other was always seen around town being nice and generous and helpful. My Pabst was the town...

The Caretaker

The Caretaker

Chapter one. Once upon a time. In a small town just north of Thunder Bay there was an old fairy tale that has been told for generations about the story of the town's clocktower. It stood at the base of the main street and was older than photography so nobody really knows. Experts have studied its architecture but it remains unique in this world....

Charlie’s Message

Charlie’s Message

[Written in 2003 and just found recently] E: Tell me again Uncle Charly.  I am just not getting it.   No, of course you’re not, and there-in lies the problem on so many levels.  You’re not getting it.  I’m not sure if you will ever understand it.  And that’s scary.   But that’s it.  I don’t see what the big deal is.  People will still...

The Orange Shirt Creative Community

The Orange Shirt Creative Community

My idea for the moment. Everyone needs a good community. A group of friends to share ideas and do stuff with. People who care about you and keep you distracted and fun on a lonely evening. Everyone, but specially awkward singles of any age. I propose an online community idea that could be done easily and cheaply but benefit a whole lot of people....

The script of my dream

The script of my dream

I dream quite a lot, primarily because I tend to sleep quite a lot. I often remember them when I wake and sometimes they're worth writing down or posting to Facebook. Today I decided to blog my dream because it relates to my web site in a way. On my home site http://frogstar.com I have a number of royalty-free simple comedy scripts that seem...

How I became a Sidekick

How I became a Sidekick

My name is Richard, and this isn't really my story, but it's such a great story, it needs to be told and since I'm the only other person on Earth that know it, the task falls to me. In a way, I feel a bit like Dr Watson, who wrote all the adventures of his best friend Sherlock Holmes, except I'm not a fictional British doctor, but a real...

I’ve been actively not going to sleep since 2 but just now I felt it. I bumped way too much for a Monday. I should. Ding

That Multi-Use Urban Park. Spring Love.

That Multi-Use Urban Park. Spring Love.

I just witnessed one of the coolest things ever. It seems the park bench I chose to sit on, in the shaded section of an urban strip park comes with a show. The park is approximately the width of a street, and I suspect at one time it probably was, or a service lane that often exists behind a more commercial main road. Nicely architected with...

What if.

and then there was a knock.

Written in the first person as Orange Jeff, living in the alternate Universe of Second Life. I was sitting there for, oh I don't know how long. Sometimes I just stare off into... well, at that wall there actually, but in my mind, I can daydream. You bet we daydream in here. Don't let anybody tell you otherwise. Oh crap......

Heard inside Second Life. Avatar Life

I’m glad I remembered the title because there was lemon cake and … well.. Lemon cake. The origin story of lemon cake for me, goes all the way back to when I never learned gradients. Lemon cake was always just awesome. Those that I might grade as very different qualities today were ignored as a young child not having a lot of conversations with my...

Fiction: My pet project story.

Fiction: My pet project story.

Jeffrey Banon's doorbell rang at 7am but nobody remembers because that didn't leave enough time, so 16 minutes later, it rang an hour earlier at 6am. One ding. After a suitable pause, old Mr Tyson began to doubt his ding. Maybe the doorbell doesn't work. I'm not sure why I doubt it. Experience however tell me I do. An unusually large percentage...

Dear Jeff Goebel

Dear Jeff Goebel. I don’t know if you are the right one, but I am near death, and have run out of time searching for the right Jeff Goebel, and so I used the Internet to send this letter to all of them at once.  For one of you, it will mean more than the others. If you have ever seen a science fiction show where some supernatural secret is...
