Random Thoughts #1


  • Well here i am again. I haven't updated in a while have I? Blame school work and all the books i have got through.  Progress with the adventurer is going smoothly nothing much to report on. so here is some random stuff:

  • I have recently realized that i don't really like the works of HP Lovecraft. Or Robert E. Howard for that matter. I guess it may be that to me and many of the people my age I have asked squids and octopuses are actually kind of cute and not alien and disturbing. And the concept of a crap-sack world in which their is no hope except in ignorance and terror is around every corner if you know how to look at it. Is kind of how i think of the world we live in anyway only without any thing other than us. Also: the Racism is very cringe worthy especially when dealing with Robert E. Howard.

  • On the subject of Robert E. Howard: "This was the first time the Roman legions had met with that unbreakable formation - that oldest of all Aryan battle-lines - the ancestor of the Spartan regiment - the Theban phalanx - the Macedonian formation - the English square." ...Really... did you do any research? At all? Apparently according to Howard it was in a battle with the Picts that the Romans first came up against shield-walls. Wow.

  • On things i actually like to read the "A Dirge for Prester John Series" three novels about the mythic Patriarch of the Saint Thomas Christians. The novels have a framing device of a few monks trying to find the land of Prester John with the gates of Gates of Alexander and the Fountain of Youth. Only to find no evidence of these wondrous lands. Until they find an old woman who takes them to a tree that grows books on its branches. They quickly try to transcribe the three book-fruits before they rot away. Each chapter switches between the three books and sometimes commentary from the monks. I love these books. Try to pick up book one "The Habitation of the Blessed" and see what you think of it.

  1. good day viewers across the globe, i am the happiest man today because my life have been transformed for good by Dr Ogbeifun, i have been searching for a genuine death spell caster for 6 months now and i finally got the right one who helped me cast a death spell on a woman who sent me to 3 years imprisonment for what i did not do after separating me and my wife few months ago , she falsely accused me and made arrangement with false witnesses to bear witnesses against me in the court and i was jailed and i went through hell, after 3 year i was released and i wanted to revenge so i started looking for a death spell to put on her although i got scammed four times but i refused to give up until i meant prophet peter who helped me cast a death spell on her and within 3 days of contacting prophet peter , the lady was confirmed dead and i was so happy, i became more happier when my wife returned to me with the help of prophet peter love spell. i can now sleep with my two eyes closed without any fear of accusation or oppression. thanks Dr Ogbeifun indeed you have proven that there are still some good and genuine death spell caster and love spell casters in Africa.
