The Real World Beckons…

Posted by Les Becker on June 18, 2007 in Real Life |

…or rather, It’s ordered me to take care of some things I’ve been avoiding; loose ends that need to be tied up, legal issues, school concerns, employment and living accommodations. I hate the Real World. It’s no longer a friendly place for me to be, and I find much more comfort in the acquaintances I’ve […]

Ruby Strikes Again…

Posted by Les Becker on June 13, 2007 in The Landlady |

…strikes me funny that is. Another little collection from “The Landlady”. “She still hasn’t forgiven me for that time I hit her over the head with a shovel.” “I was black and blue from all the pokin’ around.” (About a nurse drawing blood…) “I had the stupidest dream. It was Christmas, and all these dead […]

Cityscape…

Posted by Les Becker on June 12, 2007 in Artsy Fartsy, Flash Video, School |

I’m enjoying school again – when I’m there. I’ve been having trouble getting there, but I’m happy to report that I AM working fairly steadily at home. The course I’m currently working on is Flash Basics which, truthfully, hasn’t really taught me anything I didn’t already know; I’ve been working with Flash for a few […]

I Think She’s Trying to Show Me Up…

Posted by Les Becker on June 11, 2007 in Kyla Becker, Writing |

Apparently, there is another writer in the family. [[ DAMN! She killed her blog; can’t show her off anymore. 🙁 ]] – spell checked and the whole nine yards…

Struck Me Funny, It Did…

Posted by Les Becker on June 6, 2007 in The Landlady |

Ruby has gotten used to me writing down everything she says, now. She even seems to be looking forward to reading all the stuff I’m making up about her, if I ever get it printed and bring it over. I hope she still feels that way once she reads it. Contrary to what I told […]

The Plans at Hand…

Posted by Les Becker on June 5, 2007 in School, Short Fiction, Writing |

… so far, anyway, but I’ll be the first to admit that any “plan” I ever made in my entire life just turned around and bit me in the ass. I’ve begun writing again, as My Landlady Story can attest, and I was pleased to discover that not only CAN I still write (which I […]

All Hail the Empress of NYC!

Posted by Les Becker on June 1, 2007 in Little Bits of Stupid |

Yes: All Hail Shirley the Great, for allowing such a lowly peon as myself to repost this wondrous epistle. She built this form letter to save time, I think. She also gave me express permission to rip it right off, but I will pay homage to her regardless. She has spectacular ideas. Boy, do I […]
