It has been a very long time since I’ve updated this blog & couldn’t even remember how to use this keyboard when I sat down to write. After many painstaking hours of relearning how to type, I bring you, dear best friends, a blog update to restart my blog updates on this great blog everyone loves to visit. Come along!Read More »

WEEK 36 OF 2013
It’s been a while, as we say to each other. A lot of stuff has happened, but a lot of stuff always happens. Even in moments of external stasis there are worlds being created & destroyed internally each second. I have plumbed the depths of my understanding of the subject of creativity.

There also used to be this thing called AOL, which was short for America Online, one of the ways people got on the internet, which was gas-powered in those days. Anyhow, there was this robot some people programmed called SmarterChild, who you could message & it could vaguely respond to you. I got way more of a kick out of it than was rational, but these were simpler times. The following is a random conversation I had with the robot one day in 2003, when I was 19. I’ve posted this conversation in its entirety, as a historical encapsulation of what it was to be witnessing the decline of meaningful human interaction at the turn of the century.Read More »
