Pokeberries. DANGEROUSLY TOXIC TO EAT AND TOUCH.

Here are some random pics I took today straight out the Nikon D3200 DSLR. Them berries look too pretty. Warning though, these delicious-looking berries are actually incredibly toxic to humans and other animals like dogs and cows! Song birds can eat them though. They’re called pokeberries. So DO NOT EAT THEM! Also the sap is toxic too, so don’t let the sap touch your skin, since it can absorb in. DO NOT TOUCH IT! Should probably get rid of this thing before it gets too big. Apparently it gets more deadly as it matures. (more…)

Gigantic common crane birds in my backyard

This gigantic majestic common crane family, two parents and two red babies, were wandering around my backyard! Modern day dinosaurs. Dopey, but cool. Enjoy this HD video and some well-cropped pics I shot with a Nikon D3200 DSLR… hand-held.

Beautiful wild turkey in my backyard

A small gang of 4 wild turkeys showed up in my backyard. I was only fast enough to photograph one of them. But they’re nesting really close by, they squawkin’ every night. (more…)

Using Now Patent-Free MP3 Audio Format For Your Indie Games

Originally published on December 12, 2020

I’m super late posting this, as the news happened THREE YEARS AGO and the media didn’t spread the word. Anyway, as of 2017, the MP3 audio format is now patent-free. It doesn’t mean that you can now pirate all the commercial songs you want. What it actually means is now that the audio format is patent-free, you can implement an MP3 encoder/decoder into your game engine! That’s sweet! (more…)

10 Things I’ve Learned Turning 37 Years Old

10 Things I’ve Learned Turning 37 years old
By Chongchen Saelee

Gaw dayum. I’m turning 37 years old next month. Here are 10 things I’ve learned in my existence:

1. People are in their final Dragon Ball Z form by the time they are around 22 years old in modern days because that’s when they experience the most responsibilities and exposure to harsh reality. Be grateful you live longer these days. I could have peaked at 32 years old with a dead 12 year old wife and dying of consumption and rickets. So look forward to a nice long healthy life in modern times.

2. If you’re single, date people within your age range given 5 years younger or older. Otherwise you won’t be able to relate to them. It’s a waste of time changing yourself for anyone at this age. Besides, unless you are a virgin or relatively inexperienced in dating by my age, these will literally be the best years of sex in your life because you are in peak shape and have proficient sex experience. Partner count doesn’t mean anything if you didn’t learn anything.

3. At the same time, sex isn’t important anymore. When I was young, I was having a lot of sex for validation or clout. (more…)

Beautiful Rainbow Over Green Bay, WI July 15, 2020

The crappy cameraphone video doesn’t do it justice. But this just lays claim to witnessing something majestic in my backyard, something rare. Rainbows occur all the time, but sometimes not as even or pretty. I think I’ve only ever witness about 5 max rainbows in my lifetime. This one is the most pretty and even and an actual arch. All the other ones in my lifetime were bands or sheen only.

The Flash: A Body Horror Time Travel Crime Thriller (Fan Fiction)

The Screaming Horror Flash

The Flash: A Body Horror Time Travel Crime Thriller (Fan Fiction)
By Chongchen Saelee

My idea for how to do The Flash for the big screen. It would be a mix between Hellraiser, The Time Machine, and Altered States.

The basic premise is that Barry Allen is a crime scene investigator who can’t get over the death of his wife having found her skinned when he shows up by chance at a crime scene. So he makes a deal with The Devil in an attempt to bring his wife back to life. Of course, shit goes to hell when he’s working in the lab and is struck by red lightning, the building burns down, and his body disappears. Everyone assumes he’s dead. (more…)

The Dead Fish Trap: A Scary Southeast Asian Tale

The Dead Fish Trap: A Scary Southeast Asian Tale
An early Halloween treat from Chongchen Saelee

Deep in the jungles of Southeast Asia where it constantly rains and the dark brown earth is covered by darker shadows from the thick canopy above, the people struggle to survive day-to-day despite living in an environment that seems to be fertile with life and serene.

One day, along a stretch of man-made trail, which was no wider than 2 feet and was basically bare dirt surrounded by thick grass from all the years of people trekking the same path, a gang of young dirty starving but happy children none older than about 10 years of age were walking and chattering carrying a small worn-out wooden bucket filled with a couple small fish from a fishing outing by the creek earlier.

From the opposite end of the trail approached an old bald fisherman with spots on his bald scalp and he had a long unkempt white beard. The old man was really thin, his eyes were baggy and tired, and he was always smiling and humming old songs but his teeth were yellow and crooked and many had fallen out. The old man was carrying a crude fishing rod made from bamboo and had a fancy bamboo weaved basket, a decent size, which might hint for locals that he may be quite proficient at what he did. The old man had a pipe dangling in his mouth, although it wasn’t stuffed or lit. He enjoyed smoking opium while he fished.

When the old fisherman and the gang of youths eventually meet in the middle of the trail, the old man couldn’t resist the youths’ potent young energy. The old man asked to see what kind of fish the children had caught and they were more than happy to brag about their measly two tiny fish. The old man laughed loudly and insulted the children, calling them stupid and smelly and dispensed his tips and tricks on how to catch the biggest fish in the village, fish so big you could eat for an entire week.

What it’s like to be poor? A Soliloquy

What it’s like to be poor?
By Chongchen Saelee

What it’s like to be poor?
You’re always frowning
Your neck’s always itching like a dog
Your clothes don’t fit

You got The Beach Boys Greatest Hits on your mind
But you don’t have a smartphone to listen to any of them
Your last dollar was spent on something foolish
Like a lottery ticket instead of a cheeseburger

You’re sleeping on the floor
And your face is a globe for flies
And you don’t have the energy to clap along
To the hum of the insects wings buzzing by your ear
