Devil at the Crossroads

I was fishing for a documentary to watch over coffee this morning. Not something I normally do, but it’s Saturday, and I’m down in Bristol waiting for the rest of the house to wake up before we get up to whatever we’re getting up today. I stumbled upon this mesmerizing...

feeling a little lighter

I’m feeling a little lighter today. Maybe because it’s Thursday and the work week is coming to a close. Or maybe it’s because I’m lifting heavy weights again after a year off because of the pandemic. Doesn’t matter. What matters had a good lunch session on soulcruzer on the radio,...

even monsters need to eat – reissue

The Internet is our soma

It’s not as if I didn’t know this already. We are, without a doubt, collectively addicted to the Internet. It doesn’t matter how many digital detoxes you go on, or how many times you delete all the social media apps from your phone (to include WhatsApp, Messenger, Telegram), you will...

Look at me, I’m Gordon Gekko

Being everywhere at once is an appropriated style I adopted from the speed freaks of the Gordon Gekko generation. Everybody wants everything at once. I don’t have time, they chant. I’m busy, they say. Busy doing what? Everybody’s busy. Everybody is busy being busy. And if you’re not busy, you’re...
