Because I Can; Opening a Frosty Keg of Kickass

Succubus 2018 created and designed by Douglas S. Taylor for DarcWorX

One of my former friends who lies in a shallow grave in my woods once asked, “Why do you do this kind of stuff?” She was referring to my graphic designs and artwork. I boldly answered, “Because I can.” while giving her one hell of a condescending look. Her boyfriend, or fuck-mate, or whatever sat and judged as usual. Naturally, he too gave his unsolicited opinion. Have you ever had a person pretending to be a friend only to secretly loath you? You know the kind, the kind of a shady motherfucker that something deep inside you says, “You can’t trust this asshole and the next chance you get, run him through, and gut him ASAP!”

I am certain you have and as you read this, I know that their are a few faces crossing that horizon of your brain in the recall memory processes. I showed them some work I am doing for some heavy metal bands, some authors, and an up and coming magazine both in print and online. You just might want to take a look over at my graphic department when you get the chance.

I love doing what I do and since this is a career, I never have to work another day in my fucking life. Creating worlds with words and various art is what I do from home on my Alienware Area 51 R4. The i9 Intel shreds the AMD Shredripper. The judgmental asshole  came to my home one evening to boast about how much better his new machine, when it comes in, will be over mine. Well, like most young asshole-savants, he never even bothered to substantiate this with facts. I used the Intel i7’s fastest against the AMD second-rate public-assistance processor and once again like all the rest, AMD was sucking dick in the dust. Let me not even begin to compare my machine’s benchmarks against the AMD lack luster performance throughout history. Now, I want you all to take note before you attempt to argue your case on deaf ears; if you are happy with what you do, how you do your work, and whatever else, then good for you. I am not a gamer even in the spite of my GTX 1080i times three with eleven gigs of DDR5 dedicated ram on each card in SLI. I actually play my games on my Samsung 10.1 Tab A tablet. I know, right?

Now this is something I learned long time ago, Microsoft Word in any variant in a new wine sack such as Word 2016 x64 comes up just as fast on my machine as it does on my tablet or my Alienware 17xR5 Laptop or on a Dell Inspiron Walmart Special. Now, if you are in the graphics business, the video editing and or video creation business, then you need something to render the shit out of your project without waiting a month of Sundays doing so.

I also know of some highly talented and creative folks in the music business that uses such tools to create some really kick ass projects. Besides, I love listening to my music through the 7.1 Surround Sound by Creative Labs and or listening through my Logitech Artemis Spectrum 7.1 Surround Sound wireless headsets too. I know there are faster computers with the i9 chip but have not seen any with such a chip yet with the same sort of specs I have under the hood. Formula 1 kind of computing for the home. Don’t even get me started on the D-Wave Quantum Computing that can make my desktop look like something back in the Stone Age.

DarcWorX International Wallpapers and Art

His complaint, you know, the judgmental asshole I took to school with stats from ZDNet, CNet, AMD, and Intel is that he thinks these companies lied to me and he thought, since I gave him i7 Intel stats, he bitched and said “I thought you have an i9?” I said, “I do, motherfucker. I just didn’t want to crush your feelings so hard. You know, since you have to have your girl drop a knee for me on that fact alone.”

Let this be a lesson to the the young and prideful to say nothing of the utterly misinformed. What a lame motherfucker, and then he complains about my Alienware 34” curved screen at 120 MHz screen. I just told him to go and suck a fucking dick. Really, like oh yeah, “I bought all this stuff to do my work on with your approval in mind. Now get out!”

He didn’t like my Ultimate Gaming Mouse that I use and is programmed for Adobe Photoshop CC 2017 and a couple of other fine Adobe applications to say nothing about the Microsoft Visual Studio 2017 Enterprise. Oh, and on my Win 10 Enterprise OS. Yeah, he had to complain like a gut-shot ape over how Microsoft works for the NSA and CIA. I had to break it to him that all Operating Systems from Linux, Windows, Apple, and Solaris are just as exposed. I also told him for every complaint he’s crying buckets about, there are features he could if only he would do his own research as in shutting some of the features down. I am so close to “disable” this jackass. He truly is a fucking half-witted cunt.

Out of all the operating systems I have been exposed to since 1986 professionally and since 1982, my favorites have been Microsoft Windows 2000 Professional and Windows 7 Ultimate x64. I am getting Windows 10 Enterprise reigned in.

Now a days, I don’t see them much only when they try to avoid me and run headlong into their house and car. Like I am really going to kill them or something.

Oh, I might use their likeness and such as characters, you know, fictional characters that gets all carved up making the Saw Franchise look like Subway Sandwich Shops. Hey, you can put a human body in an industrial size plastic drum filled with toxic chemicals that will juice them both on a slow boat to China these days.

Just kidding…

Oh, and some things that I forgot to post in this article. Sorry about that. I truly am. I hate telling good people bad news, I really do… (sounds like the Prophet from the Matrix). Since it is 2018 and all, well, I decided to upgrade my artwork and you all shall be noticing the differences. Some are subtle though. I did ask and set up some auto-tweets inquiring the world on the new resolutions. So far not a peep. Nevertheless, rest assured that I will continue to kick some serious ass in this aspect as usual. I also have added new mockup movie posters that stars or features some of my greatest fans, followers, and such. I stopped this for some time as I realized that I was making a lot of miserable people really jealous. Call it an experiment in social networking. Yeah man, did the haters come out of the fucking woodwork. Some of these same people still come here and read to see if I would talk about them or something. I have so few unfortunates and casualties in my crimson wake that it isn’t even worth mentioning.

Then Along Came The Spider…

DarcWorX International Wallpapers and Art

Some things change and some things remain the same. I would like to welcome all the new folks to my blog of horror, the strange, the odd, the macabre, and the “Darc.”

I shall wish and everyone of you for all the support via the social networks in 2017. As a graphic designer to include clothing at the VIDA Studio. The stuff is available all over the world and yes, it’s selling!

I would also like to wish all those who in the “darc” past that faded away, went underground as in; the groundhogs are delivering your mail for you. Yes, all those tormented and twisted souls that are no longer with us. Yes, these lost souls fall into the category of “Who Gives A Fuck.” I must remind you that coming here like a creepy ghost in the night clicking around and, in your way, creating extra revenue to the Darc. I appreciate your ill-spent energy and bandwidth. I truly do!

Damn, almost forgot, I would like to wish everyone a belated, “Merry Christmas.” There, better late than ever.

DarcWorX International Wallpapers and Art

The above cover is based upon unholy almost actual events here in the Americas. Yes indeed, I killed Santa Claus and my friend Andy wanted pictures so, here you go!

DarcWorX International Wallpapers and Art

I know there are folks wondering if I really have any predictions for 2018. I think I have expressed them more than well enough throughout the various platforms of social media to the point of crystal clarity. I made my predictions on the geopolitical, national, and my local area in a myriad of topics. Naturally they are both clear and foreboding. I can go on for days talking, showing, providing precious links in tying up these real facts, you know, the real truth that might make you think differently, and waking you up from the Matrix. Moreover, most won’t dare to experience the horror of reality – Real horror.

Speaking about horror and that is the heart of this blog by the way, there is so much coming for you in these realist realms for those who can see, for those who are half-awake, and those still jacked in and getting pumped with some really good MK-Ultra – Damn, there I go again. Let me just end this right here. No matter what group or stage that you may be in, it doesn’t matter, some major dude will put it all back again in due time. Just remember, the Government kills more people than any war. In fact, I believe it falls second just under poverty as the major threat goes. There is religion that is a tool for government.

DarcWorX International Wallpapers and Art

Hey, you all know that my musical taste is in a word, “Eclectic.” I love certain bands, groups, and such that seems to know no bounds. Having said that, why does Five Finger Death sounds like they have all been gut-shot apes complaining about, you know, mom and dad, and their misgivings. These guys have some killer tunes, nevertheless, “American Capitalist” way back in 2011. Now if these guys were/are hating on the government, then the message is lost in the Deluxe Version I have of this album.

Just my take on this as I find myself listening to this album as I am writing right up until I switch to Matchbox 20.

On this note, I close out 2017, and again, I wish you all well.

Thanks for dropping in!

Ghost Rider After Sturgis

DarcWorX International Wallpapers and Art

Yes once again, the Sturgis Rally has descended upon the Black Hills of South Dakota and Wyoming.

In the past years I have discussed the mortality rates and the demographics of those involved in deadly accidents. This morbid but fascinating at least to me, shows just how dangerous the Baby-Boomers are wreaking havoc nocking each other off the roads in a domino effect – This is still going on and getting worse all the time. The experienced motorcycle rider already has the daunting task of the worry of vehicles and natural wildlife to look out for. Now this is compounded by the elderly on the rent-a-bikes industry.

This year I want to talk about something that truly has been bothering me since I moved out here some 11 years and that is how the local businesses including hotels, casinos, covenant stores, and bars escalate, inflate, fleece, to include robbery on these poor saps from out of state.

It’s a feeding frenzy where the average room at a normal hotel is anywhere between $35.00 a night to $45.00 a night. However, during bike week, you are looking at an average of $265.00 a night and some places a lot more. A bottle of beer is now $7.50 and the blood-sucking leeches at the Buffalo Chip will drain you dry. I think most people have seen a reality show of the antics of the Buffalo Chip – Fucking pathetic.

Then there are those who lease their homes out to bikers for the entire duration. This is something that the bikers and the homeowner both benefit from. Even the campgrounds rates are so jacked up you would be thinking you would be purchasing property rather than renting space – empty space. Pitching a tent just anywhere is against the law and strongly enforced. Fines, patrols, and law enforcement are out to get fresh out of state funds from the idiots who don’t know how to obey the speed limits or the rules.

DarcWorX International Wallpapers and Art

I have no tolerance for idiots breaking the traffic laws. They are usually the ones making a fresh grease mark on the pavement when it is all said and done. I will say this much, local people to include local female drivers are showing more road-rage than ever before towards these assholes who think they own the road.

That’s the fucking problem right there, those idiots who think they’re kings of the road. I watched a woman scold a biker calling his old ass every name in the book. Legally, she was in the right and once again the Baby-Boomer was in the wrong. Though through these last couple of years, the road rage has increased dramatically. Not all can be at the fault of the bikers by any means. Nor am I saying all bikers are assholes and idiots.

So, with the fleecing bit. Well, the bikers are not as slow-minded as some would suspect. They know when they are getting fucked. Tired of the fleecing, the majority of bikers this year are out here a week earlier and leave a day or two when the Rally officially starts.

Some are planning to come out here after a week or so when the Rally is over. I cannot blame them a bit. Though, I have noticed that the local businesses and other highway robbers are following suite in jacking up prices in advance and keeping these rates jacked a week or two afterwards. So, who are the ones really getting fucked besides the bikers?

The local folks – we all get fucked!

You might think that Deadwood and the rest of Lawrence County makes a lot of money because of the gaming alone. You would be wrong. The money is the second biggest export out of here heading to Sioux Falls, the baking cartel and good old Uncle Sam in Pierre, SD.

Most of us in Old School Math where 2 plus 2 equals 4 might have had this on one of your math test questions;

“If Johnny had one red apple and he wanted to share his apple equally with his girl, Betty, then, how many pieces would Johnny have to make?”

Answer; 3 equal pieces or Johnny would have to cut the apple in thirds.


Glad you asked; Uncle Sam has to get his cut too!

Lawrence County is the poorest county out of the entire state excluding the reservations like Wounded Knee of course.

Thanks for reading and for the new kids with the new math. Listen, it won’t do you a bit of fucking good in the end.

The Fast and the In-Furious…

DarcWorX International Wallpapers and Art

As I stated many times before. When you begin to get successful at whatever you are doing and then comes a long a rat bastard to try to trip your ass up. This is a strategy is like the fucking war on terrorism – that too is a war on a tactic only. This too is unsuccessful. The big bad wolves are all but dead from trying to blow down my iron-clad carbonite fortress.

The rat bastards and the wolves are all but casualties left to rot. More about that later.

Now, I must admit, the last couple of weeks or so has been if anything, exciting. With my new Alienware Area 51 as seen below. With this new addition has come other things like upgrades of components, rearranging my work center since this machine weighs in over 80 pounds. The human skull on the top doesn’t count.

DarcWorX International Wallpapers and Art

Yes, owning this machine is a fantastic dream that has finally come true. Not only that, with my wonderful support from around the world and from studios in California – Northern California that is, I was able to purchase the Alienware M17xR4 Laptop with the Vindicator V.2 Pack for when I go and show my work in whatever format or project.

Remember and please keep this in mind, I am far more than a writer, a published author, graphic artist, web developer, artist, and musician. I dabble in alternative energy, zero-based energy to include my favorite scientist of all time, Nikola Tesla. Meanwhile back to my day to day activities, I use the Adobe Creative Master’s Edition CC 2017. I also have been dabbling in Photoshop professionally since 2000 hot and heavy. I have been using some flavor of Photoshop since the mid 1990s. Of course my artistic talents both in graphics, musical scores, short movies or movie-editing without putting too fine a point on things – well a normal stylish lightweight petite laptop with a dismal screen and horseshit for memory and two tin cans for sound just isn’t gonna cut it with the kind of work I do. No, you need a portable studio when you are on the run with all the bells and switches. You need something durable, built to last, and all the trimmings to floor a motherfucker, or a staff meeting of entire motherfuckers in my case. (Add the Samuel L. Jackson style to the last couple of sentences.)

Now I don’t want to knock Apple and those who have Apple iMacs and that door wedge of a laptop, but you really do get what you pay for outside of the Apple world. There is nothing close that touches these machines, that is if you want to spend $15,000.00 on an iMac tower and there isn’t a Laptop made by Apple that can come close to the Alienware product line. Now, I am not a shill or someone that works directly for Dell or Alienware. Sure, there are haters out there that sit around and complain about Alienware while operating their Walmart Public Assistance Machines.

Hate if you must…

DarcWorX International Wallpapers and Art

Let me get away from technology and set my Samsung 10.1 inch tablet down from the emails, tweets, and messages I get day in and day out. I can read them all much later. I am just going to sit in my 20 some-odd year old chair where I pump out eBooks, Traditional Paperbacks, posts, blog articles, and occasionally without exception piss some jealous cunt (bi-gender word I use) off. Now this all of this isn’t some short story or a wet dream. I have more than enough short stories on this blog that should give you a very keen grasp in how I write to include style and or content.

If I am such a poor writer, ask yourself this question; why are you still reading my material no matter the subject?

If you don’t like my artwork, you know, the shit I am getting paid for and paid to do then why are you looking at it?

Why do you feel compelled to even come here and waste your time in the first place?

I’ve asked these rhetorical questions before and this is the last time I need to discuss this since all of what I do is paying the goddamned bills and earning a living.

Maybe that is the issue, me doing some of the things I always dreamed about doing and getting paid for it.

Moving on and leaving the dead and dying behind in the wake of my determined momentum.

I have a lot to say, perhaps some things better not shared here but on Facebook, or a tweet that is razor sharp and cuts deep into the bone to some specific people who thinks they can get a free lunch of knocking me and my work around.

Now, I will say that my experience, my overall experience has been mostly a very positive one. I had, since the course of last summer, friends that came and went. You know the kind, or the infamous saying, “A friend in need is a friend indeed.” This has been a proverb of mine along with a good many people so it seems. Another that comes to mind is, “No good deed goes unpunished.” Yeah, we all had these “kinds” of friends. Again, these rat bastards are not your or anyone’s friends.

That last paragraph there, you can take that motherfucker to the bank and bet the house on that one. Yes, some of my “friends” closest to me were not my friends at all as it seems. They were anything but.

For the record, I try to help out everyone. I try to put my best foot forwards in hopes of their successes and personal problems. Then when I need some help, some understanding, some resolve, I get, yup, you guessed it, zilch.

I am speaking directly to a couple of three or four people out here. An argument for five can be considered. Nevertheless, these assholes that would not give me the time of day after I helped them, well let’s see if this Karma shit will come back ten fold upon each of them.

Being mean, being vindictive, or holding a grudge is nothing I enjoy doing. Frankly, I am too goddamned busy. Rather it is a waste of energy and time. This is something that I am certain that you all can agree to. I will just leave these spineless fucks in the bad odor I found them all in the first place.

DarcWorX International Wallpapers and Art

Now please allow me to add some encouragement to those who are struggling in their artistic, uber-talented endeavors. Now, 99% of all people who want to be a writer, a painter, and musicians never make it.


There are a few reasons from getting tired struggling, getting down by those same fucking leaches who drag anyone down and are nothing but losers, to illness, emotional, mental, or otherwise. Sometimes a gifted person just needs to unplug and take a long walk to an airport and board a flight to anywhere. Yeah, I’ve done that and I cannot express how much fun I had ditching my former life behind and starting a new. You certainly don’t have to go to extremes like that. You don’t have to come into your Boss’s office and piss all over him and his desk on your way out but if you can, I highly recommended it. Look at all the money you will save from spending it on therapy.

I also know full well on how overcoming or overwhelming all this can be. Pressures of life, family, the job – the one that you are a fucking slave to, and dreams seeming to fade or die. Nothing grieves me more than to see someone realize that their lifetime ambitions has come to a grinding halt.

Truly, the living dead…

One thing is for certain, I am eclectic as well as unusual. The song, “Divide” by Disturbed says it all about me and those like me. I have been different from what seemed like everyone else since I can remember. I tried to be like them in the early years but when you are in survival mode and held hostage by demons at home, well, it’s nearly impossible to just to breath let alone, express yourself.

Nevertheless, sometimes a break is in order. Sometimes stepping back from something to give you a fresh perspective is essential. A new stratagem because the one you’re into right now is not doing jack shit to the bottom line of things.

I know I write blunt. I know I can be brutally honest at times and seemingly unmerciful. I know that my hands may be caring but to reset that broken bone of yours is really gonna smart. Same with a broken heart. I know a lot of talented people. I know poets who write the most beautifully but cannot tell a goddamned good story. This goes for the short story people too.

You want to go the long haul?

Then sit down and write a full-blown novel from a blank screen. Edit it after you have finally finished before sending it off to an editor if you can afford one. Design the cover, spine, and back cover of the book. Take goddamn charge of your work in all aspects and whatever you do, don’t let the rat bastards tell you different.

Never give up and never get complacent in your talents. To be a master at something will take all of your life. Take charge. Don’t wait around for someone else that will or may ever come. Publish your novel, it’s really easy. Master the social media platforms and most importantly, don’t be a fucking baby about it.

It Has Been A While But I Am Still At It!

Copyright Protected @2017 DarcWorX

Created By Douglas S. Taylor for DarcWorX

I know it has been some time since I wrote a post. I am far from being dead and just like the inflammatory magazine cover states, I haven’t gone anywhere!

No, instead, here at my little corner of gloom, my sorcery in all things “Darc” has went for an immediate upgrade. First it was the Adobe Creative Master’s Collection CC 2017 and hardware upgrades galore. Yes, a new Alienware Area 51 R2 fully decked out with three NVidia’s GTX 1080 TIs grinding out the extreme HD graphics rendering in mega huge media formats such as Bus Stop Posters, billboards, additional art and design. It is strange to me that most people can work with Windows 10 Creative with 4 or 8 gigs. I have 64 Gigs of RAM and when I am into my larger work I utilize anywhere between 75 to 90% of my memory and my Pagefile is screaming at 95% or more. If you are into rendering out huge gigabyte Photoshop Files and Premiere videos to your client’s server, you need not only this kind of horsepower but the serious uploading bandwidth. With 1 Gb/s download and 200 Mb/s upload you really need this.

I DON’T PLAY GAMES and this is not a gaming rig though it has all the trimmings for decimating any game in the market. I am not bragging, I am showing you how serious you need to be when you are into the things that I do. True, I write with Microsoft Office 2016, I have Outlook 2016 open, Photoshop, and my music player pumping the tunes through my Logitech Artemis Spectrum C933 Wireless 7.1 Surround Sound Headset. Music is my muse and like Gene Simmons said, “I love it loud!”

True that!

DarcWorX International Wallpapers and Art

My Alienware M17 R4 Laptop joins the Darc Forces in two days and that is for when I am on the road to various studios in Northern California. Yes, there are studios now that displays my original pieces, One is actually a clothing designing studio where the public can purchase artistic designed clothing. You can go to my Facebook page and Twitter for more information and my cyber studio. All items are $75.00 USD plus shipping and tax. I have nothing to do with the fashion itself, just my art they want and they do the rest. I am told that one studio has a huge oil-based print of mine in their gallery that is 60 inches by 240 inches long all in a frame. I am assured it will sell and when everyone takes a bite out of the sale, I may just have enough to rub a couple of shiny new nickels together.

So, as you can see, I have been very busy. I also would like to make mention that I am leaving the eBook scene and going full throttle with Amazon Books in Traditional Paperbacks and Hardcovers. Already, “The Many Unnatural Lives of Scott Solomon Dean” has its ISBN for being sold via Amazon all over the world. I am also told that I will be in charge of setting the price of each book I produce. Since, I do the book designs already for a few special clients, and I am indeed a professional at what I do, designing my own covers is always KILLER.

Some good folks out here and in the world ask about what I write or a sample of my work. As you know, this is the official one and only blog of DarcWorX which is me. I am DarcWorX as far as my LLC Business is concerned. Moreover, DarcWorX is Douglas S. Taylor.  Okay, to the point; I have a lot of material here for those who want to get entertained and find value in my short stories here. As of late, “The Sheriff” that is on the “What’s Hot List” (still) is a great sample based upon “The Werewolves of Deadwood” that will be a full novel upon its own. There are other stories too and to include a real paranormal story, a non-fiction account of an angry ghost while I was stationed in Egypt.

You get the point. Also, there is a keen search feature on the upper right corner of the main page of my blog. I have everything tagged so it makes it real easy for people to find things.

Okay, yeah, I realize that I am nearly a one man show and I know that obviously irks a couple of hating people that lives for trolling. I am not getting negative or fall out of a perfectly great airliner and dive down through the thick jungle canopy tops crashing down to their level on the murky muddy swamps where gator bait and gas bubbles is all they are to me anyway.

Let me see if I am missing anything important…

DarcWorX International Wallpapers and Art

Yes, I will be adding a couple of new page and categories to this blog that will have links to the various studios I mentioned and where you can purchase clothing items, HD Oil-Based, and HD prints to scare away any rats you may have in the house or workplace. All this will be coming soon, very soon.

Thanks for reading and if you have any questions, please contact me at:

Now You Can Contribute and Spread the “Darc” World!

Now You Can Contribute and Help Spread the "Darc" World!

Good evening, good afternoon, and or good “mourning” to all who follow this unique blog of horrors and grim eye-candy. I know it may have been a while since I wrote anything like, “The Sheriff” who finds himself confronted by a possible werewolf of unknown origin responsible for at least one immediate death of a loved one. One might say it’s a short story, a prelude, a sample of things to come.

Oh, yes indeed. Things are changing on DarcWorX. One of the major changes is the fact that I listen to my fans and friends. In doing so, I will not be publishing any more eBooks but instead I will be offering traditional paperbacks through Amazon Publishing and like the former eBooks, these new editions will be sold Internationally. I have taken down, “The Haunted Library” from the damp and mysterious corridors of this blogsite only temporarily. Everything else remains the same but only better. In the past, organizations along with fans demanded the paperback version of what I write. This I am going to do. Naturally, I need your help, your financial donations made possible through PayPal. This is also set up for the International Audience on a very secure and familiar service that everyone already knows.

I promise you with funding, my little “Darc” world will greatly expand in both marketing and in advertising costs.

You as an avid fan and reader has certainly experienced my personal growth in writing and in the “Darc” arts. There are many stories, short stories within this blog to easily convince you that I am indeed gifted as a writer and in graphics design. I don’t say these things lightly. I don’t say these things first hand. These positive things are said by tens of thousands of fans world-wide.

DarcWorX International Wallpapers and Art

DarcWorX nor do I ask for much. Any donation of any amount will go to what I have mentioned plus expedite the publishing of the paperbacks that will be made available only on Amazon throughout the known world. Additional funding will also go on equipment and upkeep of my future home office.

Oh yes, as I stated time, and time again. Subscriptions to this blog are free for everyone. Now, I don’t keep email addresses, and WordPress assures me that they don’t SPAM or give your email addresses out. I never see them or have to deal with that and you should not have to worry about things like that too.

Let me bring you up to speed on some other things, or additional projects. Now, I want everyone to know that “Tales From Under the Concrete” in all three volumes of these eBooks will be, as they are, buried in a deep vault and shall never see the light of day again. Leastwise in the eBook fashion. I will no doubt create an updated and overpowering version of this ominous collection that included such grisly tales as, “Dead Indian,” “The Devil in Deadwood,” and so many others that touch upon various common elements and characters like, “The Whispering Pines Sanitarium,” “Raven Blackstone,” and for the “Werewolves of Deadwood,” most will agree that needs to be its own novel or a series of novels. There is just too much going on down at, “The Gallows,” and “The Busted Bitch Saloon.”

Deadwood amongst other things has its own history, gaming, adult entertainment, and more than enough paranormal activity to capture the minds and souls looking for such things. In fact, Lawrence County to include, Lead (pronounced as “Leed”) is an old gold mining town with stories of its own. For me, Lawrence County in its entirety has a lot that an over-active imagination can take in. It is a pleasure for me to write about what possibly can be called an otherwise “Raven State” that no one gives a second thought about with a grand total population of only 700,700 people with a 4 to 7% decline with the biggest export is our youth as they fly overhead.

Yeah, that saddens me some. Sure, but what are you going to do, right?


For me and my family, we chose to move out here after my exile at Pierre, South Dakota. I did my time in hell thank you very much. The prairie never done anything for me and nothing in sharp contrast to the Black Hills here. Plenty of great things to do and actually see. I am not a travel agency, but you can Google or Bing it all you want though.

As far as my life is concerned and according to Laura, Lawrence County has been the longest place I personally lived at. This is a personal record. I thought I might throw that in there too.

I would like to take this moment in time and thank the tens of thousands of folks who have come to read and take with them a little something in return. So, if you do find DarcWorX which is synonymous to me, Douglas S. Taylor. Well, I am certainly thankful for that too.

Don’t make yourself a stranger and when the time comes to release my next novel that I am working on between things, I will make sure you all will know about it and the “Haunted Library” page reinstated.

Thanks for your time, your donations, and your support.
