We-Never-Went-To-The-Moon

My hands were never steady enough to hold your name without chasing
after stars that didn’t exist,
wearing your fears on my sleeve always
gave me a tomorrow, but your words are
getting smaller & there is always another
broken heart to uncover

We are eroding underneath the melting
of a thousand snowflakes on
your tongue, disconnecting light
until we are a storm without a home
knocking on doors that never
open

Talking to the moon only works if
someone is listening on the other
side & maybe we bet too much
when we went all in, but folding was
never the plan

& maybe knowing you’re
breathing will always be my
favorite sound

A poem written by Col. Tom Parker in 1978.

The songs he sang at home each day
Pleased his parents in every way
This humble home, with love to spare
The three together went everywhere

Then came this man, his name was Sam
He recorded a song for Elvis’ Mom
That’s when everything began

It was Blue Suede Shoes and Blue Moon, too
Along with Midnight and Moody Blue
It was Elvis here and Elvis there
And teddy bears were everywhere
It was Don’t Be Cruel and Such a Night
And he sang Mama That’s Alright
He was All Shook Up and GI Blues
And Girls, Girls, Girls and Potluck, too
Kissin’ Cousins and Roustabout
And then we knew what he was all about

The boy became a man and he carried on
To make us happy with his songs
We will play your songs from day to day
For you really never went away

Bioware Community Discussion Group - Meetings Resuming This Month!

Hello all!

First, I would like to apologize to those who were waiting to hear about when the next BCDG meeting was going to be and thank you for your patience. We went on a hiatus for the holidays (and finals for some of us) and I’ve been getting used to my new full-time job. Now that my schedule’s finally evened out, I’m ready to start running this discussion group again!

For those that have never heard of this group or were vaguely aware of it, the BCDG is a small group of Bioware fans that meet on skype bi-weekly to discuss issues about gaming, gaming culture, game lore, and other such geeky stuff. Our goal is to provide a safe space for fans to discuss issues within the Bioware fandom, light and fun topics like favorite characters and romances, to more serious discussions about game mods and minority/gender/LGBT+ representation, to speculating about lore and future games. While these discussions are focused around Bioware games in particular, we sometimes expand to other games and related topics. Anyone who wishes to participate or even simply listen is welcome to join us. I act as the moderator for all of the talks and make sure everyone gets a chance to speak while keeping things civil and respectful. Luckily, all of our talks have been laid back and fun, and all of our participants have made our talks insightful and enjoyable.

If you would like to participate, then you’ll need to do two things:

1. Follow this link to the doodle poll: http://doodle.com/poll/wmbzaycde45wh6q7

Select the times and days that work best with your schedule, then I will select the time and day that receives the most votes. This is to accomadate as many people as possible. Please keep in mind that all times are in EST and that the dates on the poll are NOT going to be the actual meeting dates (odds are our first meeting will take place the week of or week after Valentine’s Day).

2. Send me your Skype s/n so I can add you to the group! Skype is a free online messenger service and our meetings follow a ‘round table’ conference call format. In order to participate, you will need to send me your skype name and accept my invitation to connect, then I can add you to the group (not to worry - I promise not to bother you unless you want to chat about nerdy stuff. I also will not send your s/n to anyone else).

That should cover it. Please like and reblog this post to share with others on tumblr so we can get the word out! Also, feel free reblog this with suggestions for what our first discussion topic should be. As always, if you have any questions, please send me a PM or drop a line in my ask box!

Now to tag past participants and those who have expressed interest in joining the chats but couldn’t due to schedule conflicts or other reasons: @farashe, @smileslikeparentheses, @nix-shiva, @shortchangeher0, @halfblood-fiend, @elvhenphoenix, @frenchy-and-the-sea, @gay-on-the-moon, @queenrowan, @courtneysupertramp, @arrowrinehart, @hanhar-thegreat, @lyriumandbiotics, @deaconswhisper (I’m very sorry if I’ve missed people! I was in a hurry to get this out and didn’t have time to go down my logs and tag every single person that’s expressed interest in the group at some point, so I just went off the top of my head ^^; )

A piece of a song I wrote for Daniel a few years ago. I’d sing it, but my singing is rubbish.

You never died that day my darling An-gel.
You never went away, you’re still here Dan-iel.
No matter what the stars say
Or the silvery moon
I know you’re out there somewhere
And we’ll see you soon

dinascully asked:

Look up the Mandela Effect - the theory that people with different memories may have crossed to this timeline from an alternate one, like the Berenstein/Berenstain Bears conflict, where what is false for us was true for them - maybe your brother is from an alternate universe where Samantha was the older sister!

Omg!!! Don’t even say that. He believes in all those things. He also thinks we never went to the moon. If he’s from an alternate universe that would explain a lot 😜

Insomnia

It was the perpetual tiredness that got to me ,
I was falling down for years.
I never quite got to hit the bottom,
My eyes were blurring when they re opened & your face was so beautiful.
My insomniac thoughts went hand in hand with your perceptions,
The moon seemed much more tangible then the sun hot on our skin.
No one would believe us,
But we were melancholy on lunches,
& got our days started at 11 pm.
The freaks always came out at night.
When third night past & smoke infested my lungs,
I couldn’t think one single thought.
We can rest .

SOURCES ON THE SOUTH CAROLINA RYDEN PLEASE I AM EXPLODING

listeb i dont have the time to go look for actual links but basiclly june 24th at myrtle beach (the beach where they all went skinny dipping i belib) its disclosed brendon is no longer a virgin and then this is the entry from ryans livejournal the next day:

Sun, Jun 25 2006

The moon bred new Atlantic life tonight.the salt burned you right out of my eyes.and secrets we’re not proud of were taken with the tide. We were all newborns with blurred vision and no sense of direction.

Today I saw cancer, cigarettes and shortness of breath.

this is why I walk to the ocean.swim with jellyfish.I may never get this chance again.

this is why if you want to kiss you should kiss.

If you want to cry you should cry, and

if you want to live you should live.

You don’t have to love me. You already did. At least enough to keep me smiling from South Carolina to Virginia.it’s for lovers (orjustfriends)

This is why I do it.

Jonathan. I’m only writing this because I would have felt the need to if we were on like FB still.  Anyway, I’m gonna make this short and simple because I’m tired Once upon a  blue moon, we met, pretty sure you hit on me and never stopped even after you found out I didn’t like penis. But I forgave it because you’re cute.😂 Anyway, as time went by, you become more than that dude that creeped on me. I discovered you were a pretty cool human. This past year you proved that even more A lot went on and you proved that you were more than cool, you were kinda dependable too. Probably one of the greatest people I know. I am extremely thankful for you and all that you do/have done for ALL of us. Before I continue blubbering on, I’ma shutup and just say Happy Birthday Papi!.

To anon I was never proposed to we agreed on it too, our honey moon was a month of leave in the states, because they grant him a month a year off if he saves it up. It wasn't always romantic but it was so worth it I am satisfied with how things went we are going through our 2nd deployment and have a lovely daughter. It doesn't matter some stories don't make the couple what's important is know why you love him romance is for the movies doesn't mean your relationship isn't perfect the way it is

Agree!
~Heidi

Remember...

When we went to the beach one night, a night the moon was shining bright and we cld see all the stars?

I took off my clothes and you lead me into the ocean. You made the most delicate and intense love to me. My orgasims came in waves like the tide…

You always touch me in places that have never been explored.

I love you the most.

REAL daddy issues- February 6,2016

At first I wished I knew who my father is but now I can give zero fucks about him. I have learned to accept that he never existed. A father is someone who HAS a relationship with their child/children. Now I just wish it was my mom and I it may sound selfish but if only you all knew how it is in my household you’d wish the same. My mom married when I was a child of course being a child who knew no evil I accepted the man. From what I could remember things were good but how could they go bad? I was only a child who didn’t know anything. My mom and him had a child, things went down hill. I got shunned not only from him but his side of the family as well. Now many years later things haven’t changed, in my opinion we never grew a “father daughter” bond. Till this day every blue moon we bond and all the other days we argue. My mom has had my back since I was born and she never stopped. WE have that mother daughter bond without a doubt. I get compared to my sibling 24/8 I’ve always been the “bad” child when in reality I’m far from that. When things blow up I think of how my life would’ve been just my mom and I, or maybe she would have met someone else who is loving and not only a husband figure but father figure as well. People who have two loving relationships with both parents, cherish it because not everyone has the same and I envy everyone that does because sadly those are rare relationships.
