Gen Con’s Cowardice

Xaotik Designs - Sat, 03/28/2015 - 11:00am

Most of you have probably heard about SB 101, Indiana’s “Religious Freedom” bill, that would allow a business to discriminate against anybody they feel like just by saying Jesus told them to do it. Some companies, such as the CRM giant Salesforce.com, have already declared that any further plans for the state have been halted […]

Supporting our troops

Xaotik Designs - Thu, 02/19/2015 - 10:00am

We’re supposed to support our troops. That’s what good Americans do, but what exactly does that mean?   I’ve talked to several vets about Chris Kyle.  Once they hear my opinion, pretty much every single one of them decides I’m an asshole.  You see, every soldier is a hero, that’s what we’re told right?  When a […]

Evilspeak – I watched it so you don’t have to

Xaotik Designs - Sun, 02/15/2015 - 10:00am

Evilspeak is a movie that shows what happens when you bully a computer nerd with access to ancient occult texts. It was also one of Anton LaVey’s favorite movies as he believed it was a good portrayal of Satanism. But mostly, Evilspeak is a bad movie. The movie opens on the Spanish coast sometime in […]

I’m in Love Again, and I Refuse: A Short Essay by Matt Croyle

Official Web Log Of Matt Croyle - Tue, 01/20/2015 - 2:11pm

In life we have certain experiences that change who we are, our being, our inner selves, that sculpt who we ultimately become before we take our last breaths on this planet and venture past the unknown threshold of death. And they’re not just major experiences in life. They can be the smallest of things which build our character, break us down, make us hate, make us love.

Love: there’s a affliction for which there seems no escape. No matter our youth or age it will find us in the strangest and most un-looked for of ways. The most recent era of my life has mostly been free of it. I searched not for it in hopes that I could elude those dreaded times that when falling asleep, and waking, my thoughts were consumed with another human being, longing for them, wanting to be holding them in those moments, wishing beyond all hope I didn’t feel like that because I was too frightened to speak of my feelings, my needs, and my hopes.

It has, again, found me. And while I’ve tried my best to sneak away from any thought or moment in which it would reveal its face to me, it has found a way to do so in the guise of someone I wished it not, someone who is very dear to me. Unfortunately, love does not care for your opinions to whom it entraps you to. It simply exists, and you must accept that you succumb to its power – for it is the most powerful force I have ever known, and to think I can be stronger is a waste.

So, here I am – an unfortunate soul to which love has revealed its face, again, in a person I wish not to lose. However, love has a way of ruining things for me. Because with love breathes jealousy, and with jealousy comes hate, and with hate comes destruction, and with destruction comes death. In turn, love breeds death. Love and loss are so intertwined that one can simply not exist without the other. And it is this knowledge that rips my heart out knowing that if I act on this love, choose to move forward with this feeling, it will ultimately be my downfall again – whether it be immediate rejection, a building of a relationship only to fail, or death itself. Something will end this feeling, and loss is inevitable. The death of something so beautiful in my heart is already written, and cannot be undone.

I will go no further. Lennon once spoke of love being all that you need. Unfortunately, in today’s world, this is not the case. Things other than love I have not to offer, and that makes love a more difficult task, as it already is with doomed outcome. So I pause, in hopes that it will eventually diminish in the absence of with whom my heart now lies. Treat it like a death, without it having lived out its natural course. A tragic moment that never had a chance to blossom to fully live, only after such beautiful seeds had been planted in just a few short years. An enduring Winter. A Springtime that will never come.
