There was once a space, between the place of your birth and the place where you were, measured in moments of latitude and the relative movement of a distant and uncaring sun.

She still believed in the sun. The same way she still believed in gravity. It was something that was there and couldn't be escaped, but it wouldn't catch her now that she'd started to fall.

The Skyking Flies Still · 4:17am Aug 11th, 2020

"I wasn't really planning on landing." -- The Skyking

People disappear from the internet. Blogs are abandoned, forums fade and last posts are made. You might wonder what happened to them, but you'll never know.
That isn't the case for Richard Russell's shortlived blog. Presumably created at the bayonet point of a grader's pencil, he only made a few posts and then dropped off without ceremony.

Everything is True; Nothing is Permitted · 5:35am Apr 11th, 2020

Krakatoa just went kraka-boom and that great lady might be setting a trend among her sisters.

Unfortunate paralells to the Nazarene · 5:53am Apr 16th, 2016

Not as dead as I had advertised.
Not as undead as one would suspect. Utter distate for the brains of others I have met. Most of them anyway.
Raising a toast, but it isn't really mine and the toast is actually grape juice.

Metal Balls Crush Context (and nothing of value was lost) · 2:01pm Jun 23rd, 2013

Today, this was posted on my user page,

metal balls
are jealous of glass cubes

with the challenge that I “think about it.”

Well, here is about two minutes worth of thinkage,

For a while, I’ve been meaning to do a couple blogs on the radical subjectivity of language. If I ever get around to doing that, this will be the practical introduction. If I don’t, then I guess this will have to suffice as enough said.

In Which Fiddlebottoms Has Become a Decadent · 2:28am Mar 11th, 2013

I have been known to preach politics slightly left of the aisle (provided that said aisle is through Noam Chomsky’s living room, and why shouldn’t it be?), so I feel it only fitting that I make a confession, for I have become a Decadent.

Crystal Ponies Confirmed for Useless Hunks of Shiny (Episerd Sperlers) · 4:26pm Feb 9th, 2013

My headcanon has now been confirmed.

Merry Eastermas Everybody! · 10:57pm Dec 25th, 2012

Today is the day for avoiding conversation with our loved ones by giving them a bunch of video games and other consumerist crap so that they'll shut up and leave you alone while you raid the liquor cabinet. A day for disappointment and washing new socks. A day for getting drunk at the only dive bar in town that is still open tonight and telling people you're Jewish.

And sense I love you all SOOOO MUCH! I created a gift:
