The Druid

druidPaturbem is a proud and ancient land. Once home to some of the greatest heroes to every roam the countryside. Mighty warrior kings would lead their legions of horseback paladins into battle. They vanquished all that dare destroy law and order in the realm. The greatest of the warrior kings were those of the Matur line. While they sat upon the throne no enemies could ever hope to defeat them.

Disaster would strike Paturbem when its king took to his bed with a mysterious infection. Darton III had been the ruler of the kingdom for three years, having come to the throne at the tender age of just ten years old. Healer were sought after, word went out to the four corners. Every shaman, witch doctor, priest and cleric came to offer their services, but not one of them could do anything for the young king.

Will’s Eye REView: The Louisville Crashers

By: William G. Muir

Time to try something I have never done before, a music review. Ok I did do that review of Timothy by The Buoy, but that was just me being silly. This is going to be my first serious music review; I’m taking a look at the debut album by The Louisville  Crashers. The Louisville Crashers.

I have to say this is a fun record. As soon as you put this into your CD player and press play this album is going to infect your soul. Throughout the whole album I kept tapping my toes to the beat. The music got inside of me, the rhythm made me want to get up dance. This is a album you are going to want to sign along with, on every song.

Trust me you are going to find yourself singing these songs as you are out and about doing your everyday routine. And your not going to care, you’re just going to sign even louder. This is a fun CD. It’s up beat, up tempo and very optimistic in regards to the everyday world we live in and the circumstances we find ourselves in.

The Louisville Crashers will put a smile on your face.  Continue reading

Profile Of A Fictional Character

 

By: William G. Muir

Day 3: Create a fictional character and describe them in 500 words or less. 

The town of Glen Falls was familiar with Eric Watts. In the summer of 1984 he became the town’s unofficial hero. That was the summer he saved the Parker boys when the old auto parts factory caught on fire and burned to the ground.

At 6’1 and 205lbs, the 16 year old with the dirty blonde hair was just what the towns people imagine of a hero. This image was only enhanced by the clusters of freckles on his cheeks and the dimples in his smile. They made him appear a few years younger than he was.

The people of Glen Falls ate that kind of stuff up.

10 Things That I Like

By: William G. Muir

Day 2: List 10 of your favorite things, doesn’t have to be your most favorite, just ten things you like

1. My 1976 Ford Mustang

I have been a fan of the Ford Mustang ever since 6th grade and my buddy Chad’s old brother Paul had a 1965 convertible Mustang. Ever since then I wanted to own a Mustang of my own. In 1994 I got my chance to own this piece of American Automotive history when I purchased my 1976 Ford Mustang. It was the first car that I ever purchased. My mother gave me the money for this car after my father had an accident in my 1970 Ford LTD. (Yes I am a Ford man.) With $650.00 from the money that my father’s coworkers had collected, I headed down to St. Matthew’s with my grandfather to check the car out. I took my grandfather along with me for two reason 1) I was only 18 at the time and had no idea where in Louisville St. Matthew’s was and 2) my grandfather use to be a mechanic and I wanted him to check out the car for me. After he test drove it and decided the car was in good shape I had my Mustang.

Sure it wasn’t the beast that those Mustang generation before it or even after it would be. It was built during the fuel shortages of the late 1970s and it was designed to take advantage of that situation. It may only had a 4 cylinder engine that was underpowered for it’s steel frame. It developed an oil leak in the oil pan when I cracked it by driving up on one of those parking barrier. And after a year it developed a hole in the heater coil.  But it was a Mustang and it could turn the heads of the ladies.

I would love to own another Mustang from this generation, except with a 302 cid V8 engine, after I have my 1965 convertible Mustang. Mine looked very much like the picture down below, with the exception that it was white, the vinyl top was blue and the interior was an aqua blue color.
