Painting: Angel

An angel, above both earth and space, reaching for the heavens as she flies. It turned out with the wings being a little boxy, a bit unrecognisable as wings but I think it worked for the basic design I was going for.

St Patrick

Taken by pirates when he was young, All over earth his name is sung, St Patrick, St Patrick, 17th of March, Left in a land of potato starch. The good old Saint Patrick. The fields of green, He kept them clean. He liked his booze, always drank mead, But one day, he found himself freed. […]

Old Man Cut Short – Existence + Week 4

Every time I write one of these posts I write about a general topic before going into how my week has been, this time I’ve been thinking about existence. I don’t know what has made me think about existence but it has brought up an interesting memory which may also do something to prove and […]

Saint George the Martyr

Saint George the holy, the brave and the good, Who doesn’t get remembered quite as he should. He joined the Diocletian army, Fought on but found the orders barmy. George disobeyed, With torture he was repaid. His beliefs were strong. For peace he did long. Decapitated in the end. To Lydda they did send, The […]

Ask yourself!…

Ask yourself! How is it that mighty gods die, yet the Daedra stand incorruptible? How is it that the Daedra forthrightly proclaim themselves to man, while the gods cower behind statues and the faithless words of traitor-priests? It is simple… they are not gods at all. – Mankar Camoran, The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion Before […]

The Rabbit and the King – Easter

The crown of thorns means nothing now, I’ve won the day, I don’t know how. My golden flesh and brown insides, They give me strength, give me pride. The religious man, his faith was tested, But I’m the one that’ll be digested. And he brought us greatness, equality for all, Forever known shall be his […]

St David

Known for miracles of every kind, From raising the dead, To healing the blind, The ground rose at his feet, Only drinking water, He considered vegetables a treat, Where he went, he left water springs, His tomb was in a shrine, In which Vikings did terrible things.

A Leek In The Cap – St David’s Day

“The Saxons are coming!” Cried the Welshman who was acting as lookout. “Take up arms! Defend yourselves!” Soon the battle started between the Saxons and the Welshmen. The two sides fought for hours. None of them could tell friend from foe as they were all dressed in very similar clothing. Welshman killed Welshman and the […]

Christmas

I find Christmas more than a little annoying and feel that I need to reason out why. This is mostly for my own benefit but you can like or comment if you want to. Christmas and religion – Jesus’ supposed birthday, when the child of God was supposed to have been born. This would be […]

Revelation 21:6 (Christmas)

I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely. – Revelation 21:6 This Bible quote is read to you early in the game Fallout 3 and the plot of the game revolves around the idea that the […]

The Fat Man and the Baby

The fat man and the baby had a fight, Both of them competing for the night, The fat man spread such joy, As did the little boy, And in the end they had to share the day!   Jesus Christ was meant to follow A holy path, But Santa he just laughed his jolly laugh: […]
