dear doctor who...

dear doctor who writers, you dont make women look better by making the men around them idiots. political shows suck. they lack good entertainment value. doctor who was always smarter than everyone around him. sure. but deliberately making the sidekicks morons does not make your show better. show some class.

Changing bad habits and behavior makes us stronger.

Accepting life's truths and shortcomings and changing bad habits makes us stronger and better, not changing things to make everyone equal. you can give everyone a nobel prize but if it they didnt earn it it means nothing. 
dont accept bad people make them change. make them better. make them stop doing bad things. you dont change the world through a blind eye and tolerance. you change the world by making people stop doing bad things. marrying children and raping for example are bad and must not be allowed to go on unpunished. 
creating a religion that allows bad behavior does not make it ok. its just a bad fake religion and not acceptable in a world of peace. we dont have to go to war with these religions to make things better. people just have to do whats right.

Avengers Endgame predictions and thoughts

my theories and predictions for endgame...  

avengers 4 is believed to be a time travel film. no doubt about that. how will they time shift is the question. captain marvel and ant man and thor could time travel in the movie. a lot of predictions are that ant man will provide that service.

the hulk came back from ragnarok and got beat down by thanos. banner and the hulk will work together now as professor hulk combining the brute strength of the gamma monster and the intellect of the doctor. 

who will get the soul stone? reports that tony and steve will go to get the soul stone but who will give the ultimate sacrifice to get them the stone. nebula would be able to get her revenge on thanos by sacrificing herself to get the stone, but i dont think she will... iron man is uber important to the story... and although he and steve have been at odds recently over the deaths of tonys parents, i dont see tony sacrificing steve or steve sacrificing tony, unless he is actually a skrull now... my prediction is cap will give the stone to tony by sacrificing himself to save the world...

but of course the most important point of the theory is none of this is possible without the time traveling. and as you know when the avengers go back in time to stop the snap by taking the stones before thanos can get them, this will shift the timeline to a new timeline where the snap has not happened and never will.

   in fact, the first stone they succeed in getting will unsnap thanos timeline altogether. the story will continue on a new timeline where thanos will not be able to get the stones as he did before and will not snap his fingers to cause his dream of mass genocide to occur.

  *** but seriously, how could the universe be better with half its people gone. half the inventors. half the doctors. half the geniuses. thanos was never a hero. he was and still is a genocidal maniac and i hope that thor goes for the head this time. ***  

how does ant man escape from the quantum realm? will he use a time vortex and travel to another time. we know from the trailer that he goes back to where his van is parked but when? 

undoing the snap is simple enough. if they travel back in time it didnt happen, but they will need to make sure it does not happen again. 

to do this all they have to do is get the stones and hide them or use them to keep thanos away from them. they will probably use them in a gauntlet of some kind either made by the dwarf from knowhere or made by tony himself. and if tony makes it, it will probably be part of a new armor. probably made of vibranium. he took a pretty hard beating from that vibranium shield in the cw storyline, and it seems logical that his next armor would be made of vibranium. 

of course, once they go back to the past, the future will change, meaning they cannot go back to the future they left behind because it will no longer resist... makes sense.. so once they go back the full might of the avengers will be at play and they wont be caught off guard again. thanos is doomed to fail. simple facts. you may beat the avengers once, but you wont beat earths mightiest heroes twice. 
i rather suspect that thanos will fail before he even gets to earth... 

another factor to consider is the new captain marvel movie coming out soon... of course we already know that she will be in endgame, but how many skrulls are on the earth at this time? and how many of them are posing as avengers? hmm. maybe one of the skrulls will give them the soul stone. if for no other reason than to save the skrull empire... what if the avengers were not even there? what if they were actually super skrulls instead. nah. but maybe one or two of them might be... 

was the quicksilver in the avengers actually a skrull? that would explain why he was too slow to dodge a bullet... maybe the real quicksilver is somewhere else. with the x men perhaps... we know that some of the x men are in the mcu... like scarlet witch and quicksilver... and they are also x men... so maybe pietro never died at all... 

we know that the vision will be coming back without the stone,... so he may not be as powerful but he will be in the fray... and hopefully more helpful than last time... 

we know that tony will not be dying in space, probably. although, the time shift would undo it if he did. 

will nebula be in the war? no doubt about that. she has more than one reason to want thanos to lose... will she sacrifice herself to get the soul stone? i dont think so... kind of hope not... 

will groots arm on stormbreaker turn into another groot? i doubt it. 

will thor go for the head this time? i hope so. 

is loki dead? i doubt it. 

will hawkeye return to the team? oh yes. def. i think his family was lost in the snap so he is more than a little angry at thanos... 

who will replace nick fury? probably that guy from the avengers? you know the iron dude... or whats his name from agents of shield... 

and finally will black widow still be smoking hot in her blonde locks? most definitely. 

nuff said.

one blog or more?

should you have multiple blogs to cover your varied interests?
probably not.
the more blogs you have the more advertising you have to do and the more posts you have to make and so on and so... no. i have to say looking back i wish i had only made one blog for everything. changing everything now is way too much work and it keeps me from doing new posts and new projects. and the spam is overwhelming. the more sites you join the more newsletters and emails you get. just say no to other blogs and link your stuff to one main blog. its easy to categorize or label your work so you can have many different interests in the same space and yet your readers wont have to wait weeks or months to hear from you and they will be less likely to lose interest. so doing only one blog is good for business too.
also, the nightmare of pasting ads and tracking revenue is lessened by having less blogs to watch. and less stress means more posts which means more readers and more money. monetizing multiple blogs can work but if all your readers are coming to the same place, then you get more eyes on your posts and more readers. think about it. if you have to do ten posts a week about ten different topics then you will be stressing yourself out for nothing. sure you can just do one post in each blog per month but then you are splitting up your fans and your time. and time is definitely money.
and really how long you gonna live anyway?

book or blog? writing in the digital age.

well that seemed like the fastest year ever. the days just flew by and some of my work vanished in the wind. like journalspace just deleted everything that one year. so to has poetry.com and now blog.com vanished in a puff of smoke. dont think i had anything unique on either site but if i did its gone forever. just like bebo and xanga. some sites you just cant trust.
its better to write books than do blogs for your poetry or fiction or novels. at least there is a good chance that amazon wont go poof in the wind. save the blogs to be home pages to promote your books or art or just to keep followers up to date. 
never know if your inks will be available online next week or not. 
and if you start a blog pick a site that might be there still in eight or nine years. and keep backups if you can. 
i loved writing at journalspace but one day it just vanished.... 
keep the hard copies and keep dreaming. 
better to write in a notebook and then transfer to a word or google doc. and no one is going to buy your book if it is available for free online. maybe if theres just a teaser to get them hooked, but not a whole book. 
keep dreaming and reaching for the stars.

The Book of Raymond



  1. The poet paints pictures in your mind with words and phrases. 
  2.  The writer writes from the head, but the poet writes from the soul.
  3. The poet pictures images in his mind and then paints them in yours with words and phrases.
  4. poetry is a view of the world from the point of view of the dreamer who transforms his visions to words and publishes them for the world to share. 
  5. To know who you are you have to know where you came from.
  6. The true artist paints from the soul and true beauty comes from within.   
  7. poetry is a journey of the mind through the ink of a pen in the hand of storyteller with a vision read by a viewer and translated into the minds eye.
