Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade

So as you guys know I have been writing with the wonderful Just Patty on some poetry. In this post lies the lost poetry which never made the final-cut. Oh and look out for the movie poem I wrote in here too, I hope you enjoy!

My Lost Poetry

You tremble like you’ve seen a ghost,

Strangle this pencil until you’ve seen it broke,

Angle this metal around my throat,

Angry heckles cheer me and goad,

The blood floods as a tap-dancing spectacle,

Fee-Fi-Foe-Fum; here I come,

Trampling on all of you speckles,

Top gear, can’t stop here,

Forgotten voice and a lost ear,

Dumb,

Broken toys and stolen tears,

Young,

Frozen poise with lonely years,

Numb,

I’m a chocking noise, coughing clear,

Stun,

I’m faced with a frightening facial facelift which leaves me faceless, let’s face it,

A fascist facade merely frames him.

You fondle my trigger,

You eat this blast,

Gobbled up forever,

Re-tweet your last gasps,

I’m what you call a wonder weapon,

A wandering apex predator, Dexter,

I love safe sex, I always bring protection,

Loving face kisses then I bring upon the reckoning.

From 8 Mile to the Green Mile,

Tonight is Date Night,

Upon the Jewel of the Nile,

Superman, take flight,

It’s a Dark Knight,

That’s right, Pitch Black,

We’re on a Star Trek towards a Star Wars,

Resistance is Futile,

The time is Twilight,

I have A History of violence,

I’ve got my Goal set in my sights,

My Event Horizon,

Cannibals in space,

An Animal Rat Race,

Mallrats in the Bat-cave,

Battleships on a rampage,

Misery hates a blank page,

A Mammoth heading for an Ice Age,

Frozen,

Indiana Jones on a bad day,

Godfather kissing me on the hand,

Jot in my Vampire Diary,

Jurassic Park theme park rides all day,

Are we there yet?

I will never be Grown-up,

I can’t stop laughing.

Out of Sight,

Out of Mind,

Good Will Hunting with words,

Well, I’m out of mine,

So you can’t see me, right?

What Type of Writer?


"Writing", 22 November 2008

“Writing”, 22 November 2008 (Photo credit: ed_needs_a_bicycle)

For my Writing Friends

I stand now; I stand a man with no future as of yet, twiddled by his past and troubled by his condition but still I stand toe to toe – nose to nose with this epic-fail named my life. Yes it may have a detrimental state on my being but in life’s chess game I can hold all of its weight because they call me Alexander the Great Writer.

I am different writer from all of you, which inevitably makes me stand away from the pack, I’m a lone wolf, you hunt your prey, I am more of a devilish creature; I wait for my food to come to me. Decipher that how you will. But I have watched and seen so many of a’writer creep up to a literary agent with a piece of work or a manuscript, shaking with so much possibility for a publication or perhaps a good phrase. But —

“Excuse me; this is my manuscript, its call Dead on The Water. It’s a psych-thriller novel. Everyone who reads it says it is awesome. Could you give it a read, please?” The writer stammers as he shudders in his boots.

“Sure thing, it will be the first thing I will do right after I do this other thing I have to do.” The clips of the high-heels simmer away through the double doors of the agency.

And what a shock! Nothing comes to pass.

But I devised a plan. One that will be more treacherous and longwinded than your way, I will write a blog! Write everything I can, whenever I can. Gain views upon my work through the blog and social networks. And in time the RIGHT-EYES will stumble upon my words. – The idea doesn’t seem that great when I write it down like that, but if I do my own thing I should get to where I am going through gaining attention. Oh yeah, for all you wannabe writers. A blog can be used as a portfolio for your work, so anyone wanting to know what you write like before contacting you, can view it, so write your best pieces. It’s a lot like putting on your party-dress and attending a ball, you want to be the best piece of polished writing-skirt at that place, so you get lucky and go home for the best damn night of your life. I think I got carried away with that part, I’m back now.

Now my talent or skill; to me it resembles a ship on the ocean, it could be calm and controlled on the water but like the weather, within an instant it can turn harsh, deadly and challenging and then there’s days of waves of poetry; but you have to look out for them.

These words I give birth to can conquer all forever, whatever the weather whether I wither or whether I turn killer and send this world into global terror, I shall. Whether I use poetic stories or general stories to get my emotion pen across, I will, by any means necessary. I may be a female pin-up centrefold and my words may be censored gold, but the reality is my reality is something I can never truly hold, my job sucks and my bed is never cold, fact.

But I write everything and when I say everything, I write everything on my mind at the time I am thinking about writing. But in a way that is educational for other writers due to my ability to play with the words. Also in diary fashion so people just wanting to pop in and check out if other people are having bad days just like them. And then you have my dark side that gravitationally yanks people in to show my mental illness and how I write about it, along with the why strapped to it and the ferocious way I chuck words around that they could never even muster to think about using.

Take away this hurt, please. It feels as if my brains will flower-blossom from beneath my skull, splitting my life into death. I am crumpled on the floor taking this beating from myself because I must; squish my eyes shut so no tears are spilt.

These med-kits have no instant direct-hit on these chugging headaches.

You see I write everything I see. I could be watching TV and everything the characters on-screen are acting I am writing EVERYTHING that I see. –

Davis stretches through the doorway, gun handle strangled, index finger at the ready to twitch. His eyes mean business with his bad acting; but the bad guy is going down. The shadow of a silhouette passes the kitchen door; Davis barely caught it in his peripheral vision.

So on and so forth. Hey, you can always watch what I was writing.

But it is a great way to further your talent. Watch something and rhyme off quickly and efficiently, so when it comes to tackling you work, it’s not only a great piece of writing it’s also a piece of pi$$ to do it.

Stay shiny!

Keep those pens busy!

Alex – The great writer, it’s got a cool ring to it.

My Evil Pen Told Me To Write This


Pen-is-Mightier-than-the-sword_4535599

Crumple up the skies and erase out the white clouds, a slight breeze will press against my skin, watch how it bubbles with the burn of righteousness. Stomp on their homes and the photo family portraits; keep their blissful memories beneath your feet, Alex.

I was born to cause havoc between the bars of these pages, does that make me a prison baby? Time to turn this pen around within my fingers, shoot for the stars in my eyes and jab because I have seen the horror of their entertainment they rub upon me. Alex, squish your dreams, blood tears will fathom under the fathoms forever, so you can shake that idea out of your pretty little head.

I am about to destroy whole civilizations with thunder and lightning with one of my brain storms; on my hands and knees I am repeatedly stabbing the ground with my pen and watching it seep ink. The pen is mightier than the sword, but its okay, I was born with two hands to carry both; Insert my evil guffaw laugh here!

joker-laughs

I have come along way from being a hobbledehoy but like every black caterpillar I transformed in a beautiful poisonous-psychotic-writer-fly. I am no longer aberrant because this is my bailiwick. I will bereave for my lost soul which rests in pieces, twitching with semi-life haunted by the decay of heebie-jeebies. My pens duty now is to immolate all that is wonderful and tranquil, where would this world be without a little anarchy?

You are no writer because you do not write for yourselves; you think of the small minded and only catch the small eyes, one day when I die, my legend will live on within my works, to slink out from the basket when the flute of darkness is played. Serpent? Yes I am.

If you would like to clash swords, I was forged in the fires of family and cuddled by the cold wind of the rough sleep of the street, pelted with pills by doctors as I sit naked in the corner holding on to dear life to the bad memories. So tell me, how would I not fit into fame? They will call me eccentric but we will hold on to the truth.

This is my quest, my journey to love hate. My curse, my job, my destiny and no one not even the almighty himself can prise me away from this. You may know words, but I see words in all, this is where the line is drawn and if you ever think to cross the line, I will take my pen from its holster and create a masterpiece that could inevitably murder your career.

I love wordplay; the play on words is my job title, I may not be entitled to make money from my writing but I know one day I will receive that knock upon my door. My eyes will darken and my soul will tweak with excitement, all alone staring at the sun, I will get closer to it than Icarus. Through any kind of darkness comes some sort of light. Bring forth my pen, Alex, it’s time to keep your pen busy.

My Top 5 Movies from the Past Few Years.


Here we are; I have written my top 5 movies of the past few years. In no particular order here they are.man of steel Booya!

Man of Steel (Rating. *****) Cast. Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Michael Shannon. Dir. Zack Snyder. Writer. David S. Goyer

You have no idea how much of a Superman/Man of Steel fan I am. Don’t get me wrong originals and the remake a few years ago are down in people’s opinions, but I have always been a die-hard fan, I don’t mind. I even have all the corny black and white episodes starring George Reeves. AWESOME! Now I am noting going to tell you about my  cuttings out and pyjamas. But I went to see this movie in the cinema, a thug can dress up as geek for once in his life and this was the time. From start to finish my mouth was opened, not only to throw popcorn in but I was put in a shock of pure amazement. I recommend this movie and everyone I tell to watch it, haven’t came back to me and said “Tried to watch it, had to leave.” So this is an ultimate film, I suggest you watch and do your research if you love the movie, it goes way back decades.

Evil Dead (Rating. ***) Cast. Jane Levy, Shiloh Fernandez, Lou Taylor Pucci. Dir/Writer. Fede Alvarez

Okay, this is a remake. I am rather sceptical about horror remakes now that Hollywood has got a grudge against the horror industry and want to tear it apart with their SGI and airbrushing talent. IT’S GRITTY, ITS SUPPOSE TO BE THAT WAY, LEAVE IT ALONE, DICKS! Where would we be if Ash from the original didn’t have that out-of-this-world attitude, Groovy! Then load up a shotgun. But here we are, I sat there getting drunk at my friend’s house and I was silently making notes when this movie came on. And…. I was rather shocked… They did a good job. It is its own movie, but I am pretty sure that is Ash’s old run down car sitting out front the cabin, near the start. The blood and storyline were rather good. A few things could have been better. More Comedy: The face on book of the dead: Nakedness (Always get a thumbs up for that): But was a good remake, I can’t believe I just said that.

Avengers Assemble (Rating. *****) Cast. Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Samuel L. Jackson. Dir/Writer. Joss Whedon

Yes, I know, I know. But you and I know both know I had to have this movie in here. Not because I a complete nerd. But I loved the characters and the introduction to some others. The Black Widow: Hawkeye: The Hulk: Ironman: Captain America: Thor: Director Fury… Can’t forget, Phil. Our heroes take on Loki and his borrow army. But as huge characters have bigger egos, you know some conflicts will erupt. And just in time for an ultimate battle for all mankind with some laughs and some sacrifice. Ultimately be able to watch this again.

Fast & Furious 6 (Rating. *****) Cast. Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Dwayne Johnson. Dir. Justin Lin. Writers. Chris Morgan, Gary Scott Thompson

Another one to the Fast and furious franchise. Yeah, 2 Fast 2 Furious and Tokyo Drift were branches from the original. But When Vin Diesel and the original cast signed back up for follow on movies. The buzz everywhere for these movies was epic. Now you are either a car lover, bad boy over, bad girl lover or just an overall lover of all things Ass-kickery. You will love these, GO OUT AND BY THEM! I promise you will love the soundtracks and high octane that is injected through your speakers. Cannot wait for Fast And Furious 7 with The Transporter driver himself, Jason Statham.

Warm Bodies (Rating. ****) Cast. Nicholas Hoult, Teresa Palmer, Analeigh Tipton. Dir/Writer. Jonathan Levine. Novel by Isaac Marion

Now I know this is a corny movie. But I am a secret night-time fan of the Rom-Com. This is a movie where zombies have taking over the world and there is only a band of humans left only trying to live. When R and Julie (Romeo and Juliette, Yes, I found that funny.) Find each other R slowly finds his humanity again. It is a great movie for the girlfriend or just for a couple of giggles. But I have always loved the idea of love conquering all.

Honourable mentions.

Skyfall

Django unchained

Total Recall

Seven Psychopaths

Rise of the Guardians.
