Bored of Existence

Idea by: Nikos Koufus Written by: Scott McAllknowingandpowerful I find it interesting. The first thing that my creations did was develop time. Even the very first ones knew about time before they discovered time. I have never had the privilege of feeling time. For me, nothing ages: It just changes. The grass that grows. The …

Glass River

Scott McDrifting The river was calm, no ripples, sailors or storms. Finding it was serendipitous. I stumbled into it with no intention of getting in, but then I was in a boat, drifting down the coastline with no way of knowing how fast or slow I was moving. The water looks like glass with no …

Free Time

I am often caught off guard by people that only critique and don't create on their own. When I watch a movie or show, read a book or play a video game, I always leave wondering what I could have done differently and potentially even better. I want to create a world that people can …

Wanderlust

This is something little that I made while experimenting with sonnets. It's really just a whimsical look at the world from the eyes of a child who hopes that life is as exciting and amazing as every book says it is. You and I both know it's not, but it's still something. Scott McSonnet Stories …

All the Money in the World

I strongly believe that if I won the lottery, I would be disappointed. I don't want free money. There's no value there. I want to work hard and earn it all myself. I don't have rich tastes so I wouldn't spend it anyway so why does it matter? Scott McFrugal If I had all of …

Grandfather Clock

When depression and anxiety hit at the same time that you're working on a project, time becomes a very unwelcome enemy. Scott McFatherTime The chimes of the loyal timekeeper echo through the halls, vibrating my bones. It’s midnight again. It’s midnight again. It’s another midnight. Another entire day of nothing. When all else fails, I …

Spotlights and Attack Helicopters

Welcome to Room 101, where no one can hear your screams and the rats are hungry. Written by: Scott McMusophobia Art by: Kiersten Lee Ketter It’s not 1984 or Brave New World. Each of them would be favorable when compared to the nightmares that I see every day. I see only darkness and spotlights when …

Get Out of My Head

The voices clang harder than someone chewing with their mouth open, breathing like they just ran a marathon or the vibrates of an unsilenced phone. They ring in a way that causes unbearable stress. I can do nothing but leave the room until they stop bickering and barking at each other, aggravating me more than …

Translucent

Idea from Kyle Deddo. Written by - Scott McSeerightthroughme “You wouldn’t believe me if I told you the truth.” “Try me. I’ve heard all sorts of stories from all sorts of people and I’m sure this one isn’t too different from the others.” “That’s what all of the others shrinks said.” “I know that you …

1: Introduction

This is the first episode of my new Podcast that's unsurprisingly called Acceptable Madness. It's just the introductory episode so I'm mainly covering what I hope it will accomplish and a bit more about myself. I hope you enjoy. Scott McPodcast

Flavor of Life

Scott McTasty You look and search and wait and crave. It’s amazing how much weight you give the unseen drive for something you’ve never felt or experienced. Everything, and I mean everything, revolves around this unsung emotion, one that avoids you like the people that you push yourself away from. You work day in and …

Picking tomatoes can be so hard. Scott McTomatoesallthewaydown The best tomatoes have already been chosen. How many people have picked up this very one, looked at it, squeezed it and put it back, covering it with their own brand of infectious diseases and nastiness. I had the same problem with the blackberries. Every pack had …

Fleet of Downward Ships

Shout out to all of the people who have read, liked, commented on and followed my blog. Special shout out to odylicious, the creator of bookzone (https://bookblog200.wordpress.com/), since they are, as far as I know, the first person who I haven't met who is a regular to this blog. I just think that having reached …

Chalkboard Woes

This was an idea that my friend Nikos came up with. I wrote it about a year ago and I still find it to be one of the more existential and unique pieces that I have written. I've never been someone who loved school or the education system. I'd even say that I hate it. …

Standing in the Rain

Next time it rains, find some time to go outside and sit on your porch, patio, balcony or whatever else. If you hate getting wet, bring an umbrella and just listen. If you really let yourself enjoy it instead of worrying about getting wet, you'll hear nothing but the quiet sounds of raindrops falling, leaves …

Change

The constant struggle between trying to become something bigger than myself and falling into complacent laziness is one that I have to overcome everyday. I'm not special by saying that. Everyone has different metrics for success. Mine sits much higher than I'll likely ever be able to reach, but you bet your ass I'm working …

Simple Things: Part 1

As we approach the end of summer, I think about all the time that I spent outside. Every second away from a screen, desk or artificial light was one that I could enjoy and savor. Now we're at the end and snow will be here before we know it and then there will be another …

Limb from Limb

I pour my heart into the shit that I put out here. It may not be super new, but at some point I did pour my heart into it. I have no problem revealing myself in what I write and showing my true goals. I would love to be a famous writer. I would love …

Cosmic Dust

It's easy to think about how completely and totally expendable we are as humans. We have no apparent purpose except to go around and live. Some of us are living the lives that they hoped to live and others are farther from it than they ever thought they'd be, but no matter the quality of …
