Friday Firesmith – The Ghost at Reefer Falls at Factory Creek

There were very few cameras back then and we didn’t have the urge to preserve every living moment because we were living in the moment. There was a dirt road off of a dirt road where there was an old wooden bridge that had all but collapsed, and I still remember when it was […]


Friday Firesmith – Taylor Swift

I remember when it was because I had been assigned to a pretty big project but it was much further away than what I was accustomed to at the time. I was going to spend about thirty minutes, each way, commuting but that isn’t such a big deal except there’s no form of […]


Friday Firesmith – Fear

It’s easy to be afraid. It’s easy to make the connection between not being afraid and being safe. If someone tells you that there are unicorns massing for attack right across your property line and that building a fence with armed guards on top of it will prevent unicorns from attacking, it’s easy to […]


Friday Firesmith – The Sins of The Grand Old Party

The Republican Party casts their collective gazes over American and they are appalled. The last eight years has been brutal, particularly since the last election saw Obama reelected and the Republican Cause reeling. The last four years were worse and worse, and now, in an election year where they had one job, and that […]


Friday Firesmith – The Sins of Erin Andrews

The internet has pretty much killed print nudity. Why bother to buy a magazine when you can see millions of nude photos on your phone or computer? Hell, you can even log onto Naughty Bits and if it isn’t showing some 500-pound woman in a state of undress you might see a woman who is […]


Friday Firesmith – Photo Finish

I wish I still had some of the photos I took back in the 70’s. I was just a kid then with a simple and small handheld Kodak. You got what you got back then; there were no programs to help fix bad photos and often I’d get back the developed picture and had […]


Friday Firesmith – First Kiss

At fourteen I was as painfully shy around females as anyone who ever breathed air. I could not think, speak, breathe, or so much as nod coherently when in the presence of a girl. There was as much chance as me getting my first kiss as winning the lottery or inventing the internet out […]


Friday Firesmith – Iwo Jima

On February the nineteenth, 1945, the United States Marine Corps landed on a tiny speck of an island in the Pacific named Iwo Jima. Unlike all other island battles between the Japanese Imperial Army and the Marines, the Japanese commander, Lieutenant General Tadamichi Kuribayashi had turned Iwo Jima into a mastermind of defensive networks. […]


Friday Firesmith – The Sins of Cam Newton

Every once in a while the NFL has a showdown between a up and coming upstart young quarterback and a grizzled veteran who is looking for that last chance at glory. Super Bowl 50 seemed to be the ideal place and time with the two most perfect candidates to do battle. On one sideline […]


Friday Firesmith – My Top Ten Movies… At This Time

When someone asks me to name my favorite movie it’s hard to pin something like that down. It’s a question of mood, really, but there are some movies I just plain enjoy watching again and again. Not the same type of again and again as a five year old who has “Frozen” on a […]
