MY SKETCHBOOK:
A collection of short essays and sketches.
By: Kilgore Trosky Trout.

The turning points in life occur when you sometimes think things can't get much worse, but they do. I guess you just make the best of what you can and try to go forward. Laugh at what you can and cry when necessary.
I wanted to be a commercial artist or any type of artist, but sadly, I took the safe route of business and computers, which in the end turned out to be a somewhat sad life and career. I did enjoy the troubleshooting aspects of the job, but on the whole office politics just gave me a headache and characters to fill some short stories.

MY SKETCHBOOK:
A collection of short essays and sketches.
By: Kilgore Trosky Trout.

The turning points in life occur when you sometimes think things can't get much worse, but they do. I guess you just make the best of what you can and try to go forward. Laugh at what you can and cry when necessary.

For laughs in the old days, I read Mad Magazine. George Dubya did really remind me ALFRED E.
I miss Mad magazine, and if I can find it somewhere would still buy a copy: Wait it still exists for the teenage mind. Weirdly, Mad's website loops an infinite loop into THE twitter website. The printed word is killed by the world of social networks that actually promoted being alone and sitting and staring at a cell-phone. AND SO IT GOES.

The collage actual is a summation of the Cheney/Bush debacle every photo has a real meaning and sadness when politicans with odepius issues and power mad vice presidents with mental issues take charge.

THOUGHTS AND DRAWINGS ABOUT AMERICA!
Like one those cavemen, I scrawl my pictures on my cave wall to show that I am alive.
Those guys in the cave most likely had the first audience that went WOW! Now, today most
people don't give rats ass about art, unless as an investment.

  Speaking of rodents, most of my stories come out of either past memories or something that is said on TV.

The mouse with the human brain, came up as idea when I saw that would-be politican Christine O'Donnel quoted about that there were companies working on Mice with human brains. It did jog a memory about the mouse that did live my house with two cats. The sketch was done to promote the book, but sadly Christine O'Donnel isn't get much press lately.

My sketches were done for stories that ended going into vapors of the internet. No fame, no
friggin money for my work. AND SO IT GOES...
Fame is a drug that powers the one percent system. Ironically, once famous you can get your
mug on television and sell a book even if that said talent or book has no real value.
What sells is either vampire romance, the walking dead or screed against liberals and the
hatred of the browns, yellows and dark hued people. Books about love or that state that Obama
is not a such bad President sell as well as a forty year OLD fruit cake. FEAR SELLS!
  My problem is I can't seem to come up with fresh Vampire romance, but I am working
on a fruit-bat half man romance. Do you think that would work?

  POP QUIZ, WHAT FAMOUS AUTHOR'S FACE IS THE FRUIT BAT IN THIS PICTURE?

  CLUE, HE HAS HAD MANY BEST SELLERS AND SEEMS TO BE A NICE PERSON, HE WILL RESPOND TO YOUR EMAIL. I TOO WILL RESPOND TO YOUR EMAIL AS LONG AS YOU DON'T WRITE THAT YOU HATE ME OR MY WRITING.

BLOOD AND MILK IS THE SERIES AND PART ONE IS OUT THERE. I hope the story picks up readership and then I release part II.

  My tastes  normally don't cater to anything with violence or bloodshed. Personally, I have wittnessed violence, had a gun shoved in my back, have seen people die and it something that I don't find entertaining. Ironically, though the only person from my past that I keep in touch with through writing is sitting on death row. Evil can be entertaining, but up close and personal it makes you wonder what makes people superior to the so-called lower animals. Man seems the only animal to live for and kill in the name of hatered.

SADLY, HATE STILL SELLS. HOW MANY BOOKS FROM ANN COULTER, GHOST WRITERS FOR PALIN OR EVEN THE WONDEROUS PAT BUCHANAN WHO  IS REWRITING HISTORY WITH HIS NEW IMPROVED DEAD NIXON. HOPEFULLY, PAT LISTENED TO WHAT NIXON SAID ABOUT HIS HERTIAGE THE IRISH:

 IRONICALLY, A GREAT WRITER NOW DEAD HUNTER THOMPSON WAS A FRIEND OF PAT BUCHANAN SO THIS CARTOON IS ODE TO HIM AND THE WONDEROUSLY WHITE PAT BUCHANAN.

The KKK message here is from one of Nixon's cohorts, who pioneered selling fear to old whitepeople.

THE AMERICAN CIVIL WAR NEVER ENDED AND CAN BE USED AS YOU GUIDE
TO SELL FEAR!
Pat Buchanan message of white people being forced to the back the bus is a message still being sold by Newt, Palin, Coulter and host of others occupying a position on Fox News.
Ironically, there are people employed by the government who say government is the problem
and needs to shut down while they collect a paycheck for just saying NO!
Here is such a person named Michelle Bachmann, who is a pioneer of the tea-party and
the frozen brain syndrome. With a slushie for a brain Mrs. Buchanan changes
the history of America. Although Thomas Jefferson was offered money to free his slaves, he kept most almost all his slaves except the slave family that he sired.
This is untold history of bigots having close relationships sometimes by force with those of a
darker hue repeats in history with one Strom Thurmond.

ssie-mae-washington-williams-black-daughter-ofstrom-
thurmond-dies.html

This statement from Michelle makes me wonder what is wrong with people in Minnesota?
The cold weather, or educational system or a possible diet of toxic fish maybe to blame ?
"But we also know that the very founders that wrote those
documents worked tirelessly until slavery was no more in the United
States."
Okay, Michelle you missed the Civil War and Abe Lincoln, but,thankfully you are a great comedian, madame.

Okay, this sketch was about rich people and their obsession with trinkets. It was the days of Charlie Sheen's drunken-coked fueled months was a Twitter boom. Especially, when Charlie locked a hooker in the closet after he accused her of stealing his watch.  THIS IS FROM MY SERIES DUMB RICH PEOPLE:

 

 WHY DOES ANYONE NEED A TAX BREAK IF THEY SPEND THEIR MONEY ON HOOKERS AND DRUGS?
Now, the Actor Charlie Sheen is suing porn star Capri Anderson for extortion, claiming that she
demanded a million dollars in exchange for keeping quiet about his probation violations. He
also says she stole his $165,000 Patek Philippe watch.
Okay, Charlie Sheen is the poster boy why Okay, Charlie Sheen is the poster boy why the
rich should a higher rate in Taxes. THE COST OF THE WATCH HE SAID WAS STOLEN WAS
$165,000.00. Now, that money could have been used to buy a poor person a modest house or send
someone to college. Yet, the cosmic God of the 1% let's this schmuck survived on drugs and hookers. I am not saying that Mr. Sheen is not entitled to spend his money as he wishes, but what a idiot would spend that much money on a watch?
Just think if SUSIE ORMAN BITCHED SLAPPED HIM AND SAID JUST GET A TIMEX,
YOU DRUG ADDLED IDIOT!
What he saved on the watch could have got him a more professional call-girl, say like the one Eliot
Spitzer used.

ANOTHER ONE IN THE SERIES OF RICH IDIOTS,IS ACTUALLY LISTED AS ONCE BEING BRILLIANT?

Another rich idiot with a more esteemed position than Charlie would be Eliot Spitzer.
This tells something about why most men think with their penis, EVEN A MAN WHO HAD AN
HIGHLY EDUCATED PENIS, I MEAN BRAIN. Ironically the best and brightest when horny are not immune from being struck by stupid stick.

It might have been forgivable if Eliot had been born into poverty and was surrounded by the crime
and moral handicaps of the Ghetto, but no Eliot came from a family with money.
Could it be a failure of the educational system that screwed up Eliot? HELL NO! Eliot went to
Harvard, yes Harvard. Eliot has a law degree from Harvard and had a perfect score on his Lsat. Yes, a perfect score on his Lsat. His parents, a typical Jewish Mother must have been very proud. You know the line, my son, the LAWYER. UNTIL, DUM,de, DUM,dum. NOW WAIT FOR
IT.
******
First, Eliot becomes Attorney General of New York; he fights crime like superman, busting mafia
types, Wall Wall-street corporation, etc... Now, this guy is golden and headed for even a
more esteemed position. Bingo, he is elected to be the Governor of New York, that power house state of America. It sounds so perfect until he decides to get involved with a very expensive type of women. Like our friend Charlie, Eliot was playing hide the salami with a working girl at one thousand dollars an hour. With Eliot's big brain this should have been a perfect crime. But the bright boy, instead paying by directly handing over cash to the madame, paid by wiring the money from his bank account. His bank notified authorities that $80,000.00 dollars had been wired, and that seemed very unusual.
Okay, Eliot had to stand next to his pissed off wife and there reassign his Governorship. Not sure
whether Harvard will adapt their curriculum to include how hide your illegal proclivities from the
public.
Poor Eliot actually was close to cleaning up Wallstreet, but his proclivity for enjoying the ways
of the flesh made him unemployable. Eliot has tried for jobs, but he got his talk-show,
which was canceled and failed to get elected comptroller or dog-catcher. However, the man has
money and working does suck.

Those were just the random thoughts. Images sometimes make me start a sketch then go for the story. On the whole, I keep on trying and hope for the best. Just looking for a conversation or the humanity of showing that I am alive and finding the humor in life. I would love to hear back from anyone writing their stories for this website or reading my stuff on this website.
