Site-wide links

All of these words...

Have I mentioned before (I know I have) that I have problems with verbal and written communication?  It's sort of noticable to people sometimes but I've had many regular day jobs that require better than regular performance in that area…

Just Hanging

With Root Creation releasing last week, and it being the holiday season, in some respects it's been quiet and I've just been hanging around.  I also seem to have had COVID again so it's been a struggle somedays as I've…

Project: Momentary Ramble

I'm bad at being motivated to write words. But I've had a little break and want to get some thoughts down in public as a reference for where I'm generally heading.  Some might happen, some might not over the next…

A review...

I had a really good Bandcamp Friday this month, and possibly my favourite thing about was this review from Ether Diver on Mastodon.

Instagram/Social Media

You know I've played around with social media in the past, and Instagram is the only one that I've stuck with for any amount of time.  I was about to leave that too when suddenly David Torn and Terry Riley…

Digging this quote...

Ai Weiwei: I don't even look at the final product, I don't care about it that much.  The process is sensuous, it has blood. But the final is just a corpse to me.
