I should have made one of these things ages ago, but was too focused on my series and other projects. So, here’s a proper introduction to what I do on this website.

Hello! If you are reading this, you’re dead. Not really, you just stumbled across this page. You’re probably wondering what it is I do here, so that’s what this post is for. My name is H.M Grove. That’s my pen name. My real name is none of your business.

I’m sure if you look hard enough, you could figure it out, but that’d be a little weird. What…

This is not my style of article, but I cannot hold back my divine appreciation for this film. “Grandma’s Boy” is the type of movie that allows you to forget about all of your problems, and gifts you with genuine joy and laughter.

Whether it’s the off-brand Mel Gibson starring in the film cracking a corny joke, or JP asking a girl to sit on his face in a robot voice, this movie won’t let up on your funny bone.

If you have not seen this movie, then I suggest that you stop reading this and watch the…


A Note From a Cosmic Drifter

The galaxy is in the palm of my hands, so I pet her carefully with love. Every day is a new day, and the stars dictate the tracks my feet leave behind. Currently, I find myself sitting next to a rusty crate in the cargo hold of a massive cargo ship.

It’s a Carasora C-679 Interstellar Transport. Those are my favorite ships to stowaway on, because the cargo hold is big enough for me to hide from workers, and there are windows. I have no destination, no goal, and no plan.

They call people…

I’ve been meaning to write about Kratom for some time, but I’ve been occupied with space stories and other topics to feed my readers. For those who don’t know what Kratom is, I recommend that you look into it, but take what you read with a softball-sized rock of salt.

Mainstream news and government owned websites bash Kratom all day long because it steals their loyal methadone customers. To sum it up, Kratom is an herbal supplement of sorts.

The plant is grown in Southeast Asia, mainly in Indonesia and sometimes in Vietnam and Thailand. The leaves of…

The Ooari Race

I stand still as my pit crew suits me up. Racing suits are heavy, uncomfortable, and a little tight on the ass, but none of the matters in zero G. I just need to endure while I’m in the crew bay.

I’ve been training all year for this race. Training has been a little rough, but my crew boss knows how to get things done. Currently, I’m holding 4 Ooari Race Cups under my belt after racing for 13 years.

I have several other trophies from smaller races, but the Ooari Race is the biggest speeder race…

A few years ago, a close friend of mine said something that I would never forget. He claimed that alcohol is more powerful than Ayahuasca. Ever since then, I haven’t really been able to take my mind off of this remark.

To the average Joe’s ear, this comment would sound quite strange and nonsensical. Ayahuasca is an extremely powerful psychedelic herbal tea. The effects can last twice as long as LSD and the experience is beyond intense.

After consuming Ayahuasca, you will vomit, shit, and piss until your body is rid of toxin, and then you will forgo…


The Celestial Smuggler

The view of that bright blue planet brings a tear to my eye. I’ve never had a job where the beauty of outer space is brought to me on a silver platter. I’ve been working this job for about a year now, and the pay is incredible.

Not only that, but I get to sightsee on a cosmic scale. For every job, my employer gives me a new ship, and when I’m done, I’m required to bring it to a scrap ship for crushing. That’s the part I don’t like.

Whenever I fly a ship, I want…

It’s exactly what you think it is. I am an active truth seeker most regular people would call crazy. Usually people like me are crazy, but don’t worry, there’s light at the end of this awfully dark tunnel.

Truth seeking starts with pattern recognition in mainstream media. If you look close enough and pin similarities and odd occurrences in mass media outlets, you will notice that something is up.

That’s because something is up, thus beginning your very excruciating and sleepless journey into a world you wish you never found. …

Dear whoever finds this note,

We are currently marching to a big battle with some superhero guy who fights for justice. I don’t know how hard he hit his head, but what he’s doing isn’t justice. Last week, I watched this bozo that calls himself a superhero kill 7 of my friends.

In my opinion, I think the guy is just some lucky brat who was born with superpowers. Nobody cares about us henchmen. This superhero claims to be saving the world from our boss, but he kills more people than our boss does. …

Humans lie, there’s no denying that. If you tell yourself that you’ve never told a lie, then you are lying. It’s okay, we’re not perfect creatures. Lying is a part of life; it’s something humans do to cut corners and avoid unfortunate situations.

Obviously, lying can end you up in even more unfortunate situations, and it is quite embarrassing to be caught telling a fib. The biggest liars are the government and the media, but I won’t get into that, because that conversation would never end.

In a world filled with liars, is there a good liar? I’m…
