There was Quiet

I could rant about the hacking of my domains (many others were affected as well) but I’m ridiculously over it. If you’d like to see that stuff, my Twitter and Facebook statuses were pretty much real-time reactions. The admin had the incredibly tedious and lengthy task of rebuilding the server before he could bring it […]

Brave New Worlds

In my mind, the interwebs is an alternate universe. As an optimist, I prefer thinking of the World Wide Web as some sort of Utopian experiment. You’re laughing. Oh no, I won’t deny that porn makes up about half of the content on the web (I suppose this content IS someone’s idea of Utopia); however, […]

That Which is Sacred

I think I may love these boys and girls. Carolina Crown and the final Passing of the Metronome (when the metronome is passed from pit to staff- more description in the comments at YouTube). Here’s a link to the same from a different angle.

Yes we can.

Many bloggers are posting music videos to sum up their sentiments upon the announcement of our President-elect. My first reaction was, psha, right, as if some pop song could sum up the multitude of things that I’m feeling right now. Oh right, I’m an instrumentalist. So here is my musical offering (with no offense to […]
