THE END OF NUMBERS: A Study of Shadows

‘I can’t do this,’ I hated those words. I could feel them bouncing around in my skull, cracking and breaking things in their path. They were red hot irons, burning the base of my neck like a migraine. Even as the words rang through my head I fought against them. I had to do this. I had no choice.

My fingers reached for the next knick knack, ignoring the pain. I’d gotten rather good at ignoring pain over the last few years. This piece of…

The story I'm writing :3

The time of our lives is coming where will never be exactly the same. The time of our lives is coming where will we be graduating high school. Time is unstoppable; we cannot control it. Some of us will be in college, some on the street, and some looking for someone to care for and love them. We are all seniors in this story of anxiety, passion, and acknowledging strengths.

We sighed buying our…

Snow Hare, an animated short about grief, is currently the #1 Feature on New Grounds!

If you have a few minutes, I would be honored if you would consider watching Snow Hare, directed by Shawn Branden. It is a touching film that addresses grief and acceptance, and I had the pleasure of scoring it a couple years ago while I…

Written in the style of Girl by Jamaica Kincaid


            Welcome everyone to your first English Class and let me be the first to say welcome to college; now I know that you are probably a little nervous about being here but trust me it’s nothing like being in high school, we’re very considerate about your other obligations and we know that you have other classes and you probably all have jobs that you have to deal with and I want you to know…

Keeping Videos Short

Wow, its been a while since my last blog post on the Ning. Probably because I stopped vlogging for about 3 weeks and, well, this is my vlogging blog. Anyway, on to today's topic.

Today I post a vlog video that was 1 minute and 25 seconds. This is my shortest video (excluding my first video introducing the vlog) and significantly less than my average (probably around 3:30 or so). I have mentioned cutting down my production/post production time and also cutting my final video length,…

YouTube Channels!

Hello Nerdfighteria! Long time, no see!


In the time that I've been absent, school has ended, I've gone to Italy and Paris, and I've started a YouTube channel with four of my friends!


Our username is "OhHeyItsThatGroup" (excuse the lack of apostrophe, YouTube usernames don't allow them) and we (try) to upload videos every day.

It's in the style of 5AG, where one person uploads a video on the same day of the week- for example, my videos are uploaded on…

Here, have a terrible short story I wrote a year ago



“Haven’t you ever just wished for that one place where you could be you?”


“I have. I’ve spent so much time dreaming of it; daydreaming even. Just the thought of that perfect place makes me feel relaxed:A lonely place, one with grass and trees everywhere. I would find the tallest tree and sit against it, drowning myself in the shade. There would be nothing but…

I heard this word and decided i needed to write a story about it. Petrichor is the smell of dry earth after rain and literally translates from the Greek as blood of the earth. It was also featured in Dr. Who

The Egg

Just a short preamble this was inspired by a line from Bill Hicks that went we are one consciousness experiencing itself subjectively. So here you go enjoy.

The Egg

By Daniel Brennan


Adam was cruising along in his average family saloon when through an all too prevalent defect with the braking system he slammed into a typical oak and as is commonplace with this type of collision his brain ricocheted around his skull and disintegrated like it had been in…

Possible Project: Random Happenings (...In Your Pants)

Yesterday I posted a blog post (which you can read here) explaining an idea I've had for a while. Whilst typing out my idea I realized how amazing this idea would be as a collaborative effort.

Basically I have a lot of poems, short stories, unfinished works, random ramblings and odd doodles and collages lying around. So I…

The 2am Project | Graveyards and Their Visitors

This is the beginning of a story story I wrote a few nights ago. I don't know how it ends. Or if it ends. The characters don't have names. It's not edited. It's just a story. I think it's kind of morbid. Enjoy.


You never really know what to expect in a graveyard. Sure, there’s always the usual crumbling headstone, the moldering ornamental flowers left by a guilt-ridden loved one, or some anonymous do-gooder. There’s…

The Burning Man Effect- The Fires Of Color

Panic. Yellow splotched summer sky, mid afternoon, Sun scorched and burning contently. Zoom in, a large shadow streaked across the docile grass, wet from early rain, cold, inviting, resting. A figure jaunts across the shadow, his frame splotched red green yellow and blue. His eyes, tired, hating, throbbing. His shirts been torn, wrenched around his neck, the collar like a frayed guitar string, limp, wiry, twisted. Pale legs strut till his bones are seen writhing out from underneath their…

"Text Speak"

Why? This is the only question I can ask myself when someone sends me an email containing " hi how r u? im gr8! wats new w/ u? lol " I find this a horrible and confusing mess of letters and numbers that should never have crossed paths.

All the letters are in lower case. Some words contain numbers and some are shortened so badly it makes me weep for the next generation. Also what is the point of that unneeded "lol"? This is not English.

Sometimes I'm unsure whether if I'm…
