3am · 12:02pm February 19th

Three AM and I have been seeing each other lately. It's a strange, torrid affair that always makes me feel far more alone at the end of the day. It's a weird time where the only sound I hear is the soft whispers of my computer's fans trying to keep my ancient desktop from overheating, the high-pitched electronic buzz that comes from my monitor, and the soft click-clacking of my keyboard keys. I've found that 3am Pacific Standard Time also seems to fall precisely when my friends from around the

Let me start off by saying that human pack-bonding instincts are weird. They are this fascinatingly adaptable thing that allows us to bond with not only other people, but other animals and even objects. We care about our pets like members of our family (and they are members of our family, let’s be real), and there’s an attachment we get as humans to cars, boats, spaceships, and sometimes even places.

For the Moments When I am Frozen in Mute Witness · 1:53am Dec 13th, 2018

I am not very good with words.

... Perhaps I should amend that a bit. I am very good with typing words. I am not very good with speaking them. Especially when they are words that I need to say to express myself about how I am thinking. How I am feeling. How I... am.

Sudden Oak Death, Fame, and the Ontological Affects of Rum · 8:30am Sep 9th, 2019

I should probably be writing Speak or Synchronicity instead of writing this blog. Or keeping up with the plethora of emails that have likely come in from work about the poor souls that I work with, and need to keep an ear out so I can go out again to try to help pick them up off the floor like I'm some angel in a Mountain Goats song. Instead, I'm writing a blogpost about the negative psychology of fame, whilst trying to give counselling to a friend that deserves far better than me as their

Water · 2:20am Nov 19th, 2018

I awoke this morning with an echo in my head. Well, two really: one of a trio of songs that my brain fused together in a strange and disconcerting way that made sense at first, only to terrify me later. The other a simple phrase. Just one that has decided to permeate my psyche for the rest of the day, and no amount of distractions, conversations, or stimulant medications has been able to dislodge from my head. Which in some ways makes me wonder if something plucked a heartstring of my soul.

Sunshine, Speak, and emotionally deep conversations with your boyfriend at 4am · 8:52pm Sep 24th, 2018

This is a song with the same four chords
I use most of the time
When I've got something on my mind
And I don't want to squander the moment
Trying to come up with a better way
To say what I want to say - "You Were Cool" by The Mountain Goats

Lyra Explains: How Computers Were Made (Humor) · 3:26pm Jun 7th, 2017

Lyra Explains: How Computers Were Made (Humor)

A well researched (lol cakes) history of computers by Lyra Alluse AKA Emma Lee Downs.

A long time ago in ancient Rome some ancient scientist type dudes were bored. So they put a bunch of wheels and cogs together into a box and did a voodoo dance.

The voodoo dance activated the cogs which turned and flipped numbers at the top of the box counting down dates. This was the world's first computer known as the Antikythera Mechanism.
