Club 90's Featured Short Story

                                                    Supernatural Part 1: Playing Your Roles
By Shawn T
           A 1967 Chevrolet Impala rolled into the parking lot of an old, decrepit, abandoned building. The engine stopped. The headlights went out. It was almost midnight when Sam Winchester, along with his older brother Dean, stepped outside.
“You think it’s a trap?” Sam said.
“It’s always a trap,” Dean replied. “Although this time it’s a trap for that no good son of a…”
“Whoa, easy there tiger,” Sam said and shot Dean a troubled glance.
           “Well, it’s good you boys came.” They both turned around and saw exactly who they wanted to see.
“Gabriel, well if this isn’t…”
“Can it you arrogant schmuck. We finally have your consents, so if you wouldn’t mind to step right up here. Dean Winchester, Sam.
  Before the final battle will begin, I just thought you should know that from the very beginning, ever since dad flipped on the lights here and created you hairless little apes, we always knew it was going to end with you.
           “You are the descendants of Cain and Abel, the first murder, and –“
“Hello, brother.” Sam said. But it wasn’t Sam; it was the original Choirmaster of heaven and King of Hell.
“Hello, Lucifer,” Gabriel said. Dean had a shocked look on his face. “Now, Dean are you ready to step up and play the part destiny has chosen for you?”

We look forward to heading out again on the
Horne Lake Trail system,

We have extra snowshoes and would love to have you come along!

Short Story Corner

By L.V.
If it wasn’t for bad luck, I wouldn’t have any luck at all. “She’s on a losing streak” the relatives would conspiratorially whisper, secretly glad they were not me. … Be the best You can be … they demand while standing an inch from my face, invading my space. Don’t get your nose out of joint, it’s just a few scratches on the car, a few nights hanging with hookers in bars, a few scrapes on the knee, a few rugs covered in cat pee, a few scuffles with foes no bigger then buffaloes.
You are an odd duck. No need to cry over split milk. You’re down in the dumps. Pick yourself up, dust yourself off, start again. Don’t put off till tomorrow what you can do today……. Once bitten, twice shy, I cry. Don’t pee on my leg and tell me it’s raining.
She certainly bit off more than she could chew. We will help you. We were not yanking your chain. Listen to use we tell only the truth. Go jump in the lake the urge. Time to sink or swim. … Where do you think you’re going. Don’t expect to go out in a blaze of glory.
Keep flapping your gums, you are full of hot air, words trickle from my mouth as I exit as fast as a cat on a hot tin roof. Soon losing sight of the reason for flight; mulling over their advice, I find it hard to swallow.
A hospital intern caught me climbing the walls on my way through the roof. In a most pleasant f bedside manner he remarked Flipped your lid … I see … Did you Drive Yourself  crazy. No, I shrieked, I had help. They got under my skin. Creeping and crawling and caterwauling. Get a grip, your losing your mind, the intern intones as I shake my head vigorously in hopes of  dislodging the plump lump. With a knowing nod he calmly continued. I understand you’ve hit every dump on the road, been kicked when your down …     Have you ever felt that you are tetering on the edge?
A kind doctor removed the obstruction. As easy as pulling a knife through hot butter. A lobotomy in not everyone’s Cup of Tea … But it seems to have done the trick. … What will happen next?
That’s a no-brainer.
Look what the cat dragged in. Well if it isn’t You again. Long time no see. Thought we had seen the llast of You. Hey, Goddy-Two-Shoes, haven’t you heard. The good, they die young. You’re getting long in the tooth.

She can’t do anything right. You’re walking a slippery slope. One foot on a banana peel, the Other in the grave. When Push come to Shove, it’s Time to Lend a hand.

A Thank You Letter from One of Our Survivors

Dear Club 90,

Dr. Suddiqui sees me in the right direction, I’ll be off my medical needle she says, going for treatment for drugs and alcohol is the first step. This is my ten years of work to find out my life is worth more, I am motivated in the society and learning more every day.

Medicine and counseling, determination to survive and function better, I have strength to acquire knowledge of my physical and mental addictions being able to help others as well through a long time of helps and friendships.

I now have knowledge on addiction and I am going to school and counseling in the New Year. But further, gained respect for others that may be just like me. Always trying to volunteer, was a great skill to learn, it opens opportunities and qualities that give hope in people’s lives.

Always reaching out was great because it allows us to be friends which will open doors so that others will think so themselves and they will try to get help as well. But becoming my own person and doing what is best for me with every little step it will take, I am strong and willing to get there and lead my life in the right direction, positive and healthy without drugs and alcohol.

I am going to the treatment center on January 11th to find out if I am accepted for treatment. I thank you all at Club 90 for your help and your support. If it wasn’t for all of you being there for me, telling me to take my medicine and remembering to ask for help. I would be alone fighting a Concurrent Disorder, due to my drug abuse and relying on only drugs of choice, I’ve struggled to break free but now have the chance once again to make things right.

Thank You,
Derek B.

Hard Rock Cafe - Rolling Stones watch out!!! Here's our New Monthly Review to be looking forward to

Written by Shawn T
1980 is usually remembered as the year that Friday the 13th was unleashed upon then modern society, and for the monstrous success of Back in Black. I bet you if you went up to somebody and asked them if they remember an album called “Don’t Say No”, odds are they wouldn’t, Which is a real shame because it is a piece of music history and a real gem from the rock cannon. Former Piper guitarist Billy Squier gives us an album full of blues – inspired riffs, great solos and a sound that is almost identical to Zeppelin.
The best songs on the album are Lonely is the Night, and the Stroke. The Stroke is a blend of Van Halen and Motley Crue, while Lonely captures that full, seductive sound of Zeppelin meets Ac / Dc. This is a true masterpiece of classic rock and should be picked up by any fan of the genre.
