Part 7 – Where are the knife guys to lighten the mood?

Sanaa and Grace spend the night at Betsy McQueen’s cabin before heading back into Fresno.  Grace was worried that the authorties might have closed additional routes into the city, but they were still able to enter freely from the north.  This section of Fresno still seems relatively calm.  There is a noticeable police presence whichContinue reading “Part 7 – Where are the knife guys to lighten the mood?”

Gracia Asombrosa contra magia oscura part 6 – Sponsored by Monster Energy, Unleash the Beast

Sanaa excused herself to commune with her mentor spirit while Grace and Betsy talked.  At least that’s what Sanaa said she was doing, Grace suspects that Sanaa doesn’t like her much and just wanted to get away from her for a bit.  Which is fair.  Grace explained to Betsy the situation with Eterno, as muchContinue reading “Gracia Asombrosa contra magia oscura part 6 – Sponsored by Monster Energy, Unleash the Beast”

Gracia Asombrosa contra magia oscura part 5 – History

Millerton Lake is near the town of Friant.  Friant was originally called Mugginsville, and after that it became Converse Ferry, and then Jonesville (not the one where all those people killed themselves, that’s in South America) and then Hamptonville, and then Pollasky before settling on Friant.  It’s been Friant for more than a hundred years now.    No oneContinue reading “Gracia Asombrosa contra magia oscura part 5 – History”

Gracia Asombrosa contra magia oscura part 4 – Did you say Techno Tit Land?

Once relieved of their burden of a vanfull of nude kidnappees, Grace and Sanaa head off into the dark scary California night, guided by Sanaa’s vague sense of whatever she’s sensing with witch stuff.  It’s only about ten miles to Millerton Lake but it takes them more than half an hour to get there because they don’tContinue reading “Gracia Asombrosa contra magia oscura part 4 – Did you say Techno Tit Land?”

Gracia Asombrosa contra magia oscura part 3 – Nude murder sexy podcast

Sanaa clutches at Grace’s arm with a painful grip that belies her small stature, speaking right in her ear with an urgent whisper.  “We don’t have time for this, we need to hurry!”  Annoyed, Grace shrugs off her hand “Don’t paw at me please.  We can’t just leave them here like this.”  Grace makes aContinue reading “Gracia Asombrosa contra magia oscura part 3 – Nude murder sexy podcast”

Gracia Asombrosa contra magia oscura part 2 – What’s the deal with the use of supernatural powers or magic for evil and selfish purposes?

Grace’s first thought is to jump back in the car, fire it up and peel out Fast and Furious style, but the road (such as it is) only leads down to the farm or towards the approaching headlights.  In theory a Rav4 should be fine for going off road but it’s barely capable of holdingContinue reading “Gracia Asombrosa contra magia oscura part 2 – What’s the deal with the use of supernatural powers or magic for evil and selfish purposes?”

(Editors warning/apology switching from journal mode to narrative mode) “Can you give me some clue on what we’re supposed to be doing?  Because there’s no way in Hell we’re going to be getting in there unless you can turn invisible.  Can you turn invisible?” Sanaa shakes her head, still looking worriedly at the complex “SoContinue reading “Gracia Asombrosa contra magia oscura – part 1”

Is GTA still a thing?

On July 13th 1977, the power went out in New York City for 25 hours.  During that time, 1000 fires were started and 2000 stores were looted.  By the time we got there, the city Fresno had been without power for several days.  I was at a club where a comedian was doing a bitContinue reading “Is GTA still a thing?”

Do spirits twerk?

Before we hit the road to Fresno, Sanaa had to ritually cleanse herself in the Tule River.  Then she had to go touch an old tree.  Then she had to go look at a pond.  Then we had to go to a farmers market and to a community service project plot of land where theyContinue reading “Do spirits twerk?”
