Two pages in the book of the history of humanity

October 24th, 2022 I read an essay today about how the internet will be dead soon. We’ll look back and laugh at the period of time that we, as a species, spent endlessly staring into the glowing void of our digital devices. The argument for this imminent death is that the internet isn’t real. It’sContinue reading “Two pages in the book of the history of humanity”

In Dreams: The Sandman, Flip, and Push

August 8th, 2022 I finished the first season of The Sandman on Netflix this afternoon. As a massive Sandman fan, for years, I personally think it is a better-than-perfect adaptation of the source material. I also want to add how well the series is cast; Tom Sturridge as Dream is the single best casting choiceContinue reading “In Dreams: The Sandman, Flip, and Push”

Stranger Than (Science) Fiction

July 15th, 2022 I know y’all have strong opinions on modern television sci-fi: some of you are Star Trek obsessives, some of you still won’t stop talking about The Expanse, some of you say sci-fi hasn’t been good in decades (and are a delight on the internet). For me and my money, nothing beats theContinue reading “Stranger Than (Science) Fiction”

Happy Brushfourth of July

July 4th, 2022 “Brushfire exists to reveal and respect the truths of the universe, and to protect and provide for all of its inhabitants.” I had to find a new way to celebrate the 4th of July, y’all. For most of the people I know, freedom — religious, personal or otherwise — does not existContinue reading “Happy Brushfourth of July”

Cold World Goes Round

June 21st, 2022 Better than any kind of formal review, people are starting to tell me how they feel, and the thoughts they’ve been thinking, since reading Cold World, and the conversation so far has been outstanding. Thank you so much to those of you who have visited Earth two hundred years from now, enjoyedContinue reading “Cold World Goes Round”

Building an Afterlife

June 4th, 2022 I’m writing this while my human blood is still mostly replaced with coffee, so I hope it’s coherent. A giant hug and a supermassive thank you to the kind souls who came out to support me today; I don’t know what I did in dreams or a previous life to get youContinue reading “Building an Afterlife”

Star Wars Day 2022

May 4th, 2022 Happy Star Wars Day. I have written at length about my love for that galaxy far, far away several times (even recently, as I was going through my first viewing of the Clone Wars television series), so I’ll keep it light (side) today. Cold World is a love letter to many things.Continue reading “Star Wars Day 2022”
