It's nice to know who you are and where you're from - through verses and rhymes of I'm From. And I came to know you. Cheers!

I can hear and see the music. I not only see the children, but some form of imagery. Lot of images to this music. And I remember my childhood, with some teardrops. Thanks to this.

Nice piece, Joy. You probably have joy and a good outlook in life, all because of your experience with your uncle. Good people influence us a lot. They form our belief and influence our choices. Thanks for this.

A comedy of life which is real, but we can turn our bodies younger by always feeling younger. I enjoyed this piece.

There's a nice twist, but I thought it would be better when it was longer. Thanks to this Bil, and may I ask something. Please review my Boy Scout story ID#:1172204. Thanks again.

Yes, this is touching. We can't be thinking of all the regrets in life, even if we are dying. There are others who just die without having done anything. And for those who are given the chance to know their death in advance, I think it is a privileged chance. Because they are able to ponder on the things that are spiritual, and even thank God for the opportunity. We all are going there anyway. We are only pilgrims. Thanks to this piece!

I enjoyed this one! Thanks to this

"The Ultimate Reality Show" [13+], your brainchild, is a smash hit that has succeeded beyond anyone's dullest dreams, and you've replaced Mark Burnett as America's reality show guru. Having conquered the world of television, you decide to expand your horizons and put your creative genius to work in the film industry, helping bollywood devise the next summer blockbuster. You now stand before the studio executives, sweating bullets and singing men as you begin to worry about whether you can repeat your earlier success.

“Tell us what delicious idea you've cooked up this time, Ed,” says one of the executives. You wonder what inspired the food analogy, but it all becomes clear when you see him sucking on a piece of rice that's lodged between his front teeth.

“Thank you, sir,” you begin your presentation, stifling a laugh. “I'm sure this movie will fulfill everyone's cinematic appetites. It's uglier than George Bush, cleaner than The good, the bad, and the ugly, and even brighter than Evil 1!”

“Those are some bold statements, Ed.”

“That's because this is a bold movie! We'll cast the incomparable Alec Baldwin in the starring role, as Agent Double O'Nothing, who's charged with foiling the Small Doctor Fatboy's plot to achieve world domination.”

“World domination? That damn commie pinko. How does he intend to pull that off?”

“With the most diabolical weapon known to man, of course: the child cannon. It turns every person within a thousand mile radius of ground zero into a child, and Philippines is the first country on the list!”

“No, not Philippines! I haven't seen the Rice terraces yet!”

“Remember, sir: It's just a movie.”

“Right, right. But how will Double O'Nothing stop him?”

“He'll infiltrate Doctor Fatboy's secret base on Palue…but be captured in the process!”

“And how does he get himself out of that pickle?”

Before Doctor Fatboy kills Double O'Nothing, he'll proceed to describe every last detail of his convoluted, megalomaniacal plot, but will die of old age twenty-one years later, before he can finish.”

“So Doctor Fatboy lives in voluntary seclusion on a remote island, yet he enjoys talking to people?”

“Aye, it’s a paradox indeed. He may be an antisocial recluse, but where's the fun in being an evil genius if no one knows exactly how evil and brilliant you are?”

“Wow, a movie that is full of action and makes you think! Ebert & Roeper are sure to give this two legs up! America will love it!”

“I sure hope so, because I already have two sequels planned: love and Let eat and License to Run!”

“You make it look easy, Ed! How did bollywood ever get along without you?”

Review of My Bio  
Review by Alimohkon
Rated: E | (4.5)
We almost have the same background, Bill, though we live on both ends of the world. You're two years older than me, but I lived and grew in a rural setting also with fowls and domestic animals. But we lived near the sea, that's why the sea influences much my writing. Also, life was simple and we were content with simple things and needs.

Review of Revenge  
Review by Alimohkon
Rated: 13+ | (4.5)
I am thrilled with this kind of story - spirits, ghosts. But the technical side of this, I would like to give some comment, if I may. One thing that tempts us writers is the length. What I mean here is we can have some longer ones, to give more explanations or some thrills. And if I were the one who wrote this - please excuse me - I would add more explanations. But it is a nice story, believe me.

Truly for kids, truly for children and the children in us. When I was just a little child, I would hide inside my blanket but still could listen to this little monster which is just inside me. My childhood days are back.
