| August 5, 2015 by Truth Seeker |

Bodybuilding thongs on the bed, steroid needles on the night stand, used bottles of testosterone on the ground, Viagra and a plastic trophy on the book shelves – this was the hotel room of Riki Pianola, a middle-aged heavyweight bodybuilder. After taking a shower Riki stared at his reflection in the mirror and began contemplating […]

| August 4, 2015 by Truth Seeker |

This story took place during the summer of my high school graduation. I was in the living room, looking for wisdom in old magazines when my old hammer-proof phone started ringing.
