Robbie Hatley, Curator
This museum is dedicated to the children of the world, especially the abused, the neglected, the lonely, the sad, the homeless, the hungry. Treat children kindly, for the children of today will be the parents and teachers and leaders of tomorrow. How we treat our children will determine the future of our human race.
"Shining Out In Darkness"
Welcome, dear guest, to my museum! My name is Robbie Hatley, and the name of my museum is Midnight Moonlight Madness.
For personal information about me, see

For a brief history of Midnight Moonlight Madness, see
About Midnight Moonlight Madness.
You may have noticed the motto engraved on the cornerstone of the building on your way in, right below the "Open 24 Hours" sign: "Shining Out In Darkness". This motto indicates my hope that this museum will be as a beacon of logic, sanity, compassion, and hope, shining out in the darkness of an often confused, insane, cruel, and desperate world. Such is my goal. As for what extent to which I've attained it, that is for you to judge.
To move around this museum, use the Navigation Bars at the top and bottom of each page to get to any of the seven main pages.
(Or if you prefer a graphical navigation aid, click the "Site Map" link at the top of any page on the site, to bring up the Site Map. This allows you to get to different parts of the museum by clicking rooms on a floor plan.)
Each of the seven main pages also has links going to still more pages. For example, "Poetry" has links to poems, and "Essays" has links to essays.
For technical information on this site (such as what browsers it works best on, and what technologies are being used) see Technical Notes.
Midnight Moonlight Madness is permanantly under construction, and will definitely continue to grow and improve as time goes by. Stop by often and check out the changes!

It's been nearly 3 years since I did any updating on this site, but I'm now engaged in a pretty-substantial bit of renovation. I'm simplifying and updating the markup from XHTML-1.0 (circa-1999 technology) to HTML-5.2 (circa-2018 technology). I'm also moving a lot of files out of my root folder and into subfolders, deleting a lot of private, obsolete, and junk files, erasing dead links and adding new ones, etc. For the next few days, some things may be broken on this site due to the construction work; but within a week, I should have it all functional again.
It's been a busy few months for me (March-November 2018), mostly busy taking care of personal business (finances, work, etc), so I've spent little time on this web site. But this Thanksgiving weekend I'm finally taking some time to do a bit more work: renaming badly-named files, adding new links, etc.
What a hell of a year 2016 was: USA threw away it's political future, and possibly destroyed any hope that humankind had of surviving long-term, by electing an absolute jackass (none other than Donald John Trump) as US President. WTF???
As for 2017, it was The Year Of The Jackass, and The Year Of The Ascendancy Of The Social Justice Warriors (extreme right-wing censorship nazis who label themselves "left-wing" and "liberal" but are actually ultra-right-wing post-modernist neo-marxist fascists). But on the positive side, it was also The Year Of The Uprising Of The Anti-Social-Justice Warriors And The Kekistanis (people such as Phil Mason, Milo Yiannopolous, and Jordan Bernt Peterson, who oppose the neo-marxists).
2018 is looking to be much the same as 2017, with the notable difference that I've been learning a lot about human psychology by watch the lectures on YouTube of University of Toronto psychology professor Dr. Jordan Bernt Peterson, especially his 2017 "Personality And Its Transformations" and "Maps Of Meaning" serieses.
Another year is almost over. 2018 has been busy but productive for me. I'm finally nearly finished paying-off a certain burdensome debt accrued in 2017, for one thing. For another, I've been working more hours and earning more money lately, which will help me enormously if I can keep it up come 2019. For another, I've been re-organizing my living space, getting rid of clutter, adding new furniture, etc; this place was long overdue for a bit of refurbishing.
That's all the news for right now; check back later for more.
