Letter 7 by The Joshua Letters on January 19th, 2012, 9:55 am
I don’t think I’m a bad person, but I certainly would not consider myself a righteous one either. I grew up running with all of thee wrong crowds and I got in a fair amount of trouble that eventually landed me at age 19 in the local jail. At the time I would not say that I was an Atheist, although if you had asked me if I believed in God I would have said no, but I was instead simply unconcerned with such things as God and Religion. However, I had an experience while in jail that left me with little room for doubt that there was at least something out there, and this made me interested in God.

Not long after I got out of jail, I began looking for information on God and Religion, mostly from the Bible, and while I was learning, I started remembering things that I had learned in science classes which caused me to raise a few questions. Thus, I ramped up my efforts to learn and this lead me to speak with a man who knew a lot more about Science and Religion than I did. In our conversation, he ...

Butterfly Life Cycle Video by Chia on July 27th, 2009, 4:34 am
The short person is away at her grandmother's, but I promised her I would post a link to her video. The butterfly life cycle, as explained by a kid who likes to vanish from in front of the camera. She'll be making more, but this is her first.

procrastinational catastrophe or else... by Char0n on May 23rd, 2014, 12:57 pm
mumbles followed by off into the distance... the silence past the vanishing... the point beyond the horizon off into ancient deep space some constellation straight up in the night sky... the epiphany of conical binocular vision and conceptual equivalency with cursory cognitive functions... small conefaced animals... we have cut off our noses to spite our faces...
its glorious, the return of stolen mythological women... all green and then in the cool shade of some variety of maple you turn and look up through the foliage of limbs and plant fur... the blue of robbin jealousy... so obtuse a vision... the world is vision... its a myth of pleasures and consistency of pregnancy and birth and life and rebirth... the bird is jealous enough to egg blue...
until the sun... swells the eyes to a pupil zip... a observable zilch, or zed, or nil... then some idiot who needs to be heard strangles out a statement that bares repeating in select and distant halls of big whoop... some where babies are crying...

messiah at an ungodly hour blues by Char0n on April 8th, 2014, 2:59 am
so ive been ashing my death sticks in an opaque bottle the color of midnight with a strangely geometric relief to the surface... deep relief... more like bumps or lumps in glass flesh... (**)... i plan on adding some chicken wing bones that i will char in my bbq grill... then i can seal it up until i Aladin or some Jasmine comes along and pours it out... then instead of a genie... i'll have a phoenix...
not that some vivid concept as an installation on a pedestal titled... 'its not a genie its a phoenix'... mixed media labeled below... and my name... my title of authority... meaning all that one is Authoritative and Right of is the Self labeled as such... just as a rose has only one other name that i seem to be forgetting because it always belongs to someone else when you try to think of it by directly concieving of what name it would be...
some things dont exist because they have no thing to name them back... just them and the universe... thats right... ill resist...

Tertian Ague - The Royal fit by toucana on July 7th, 2012, 3:00 pm
Not long ago a chance remark overheard in a BBC Radio 4 history program sent me to the computer to check a detail on the reign of King James I of England (James VI of Scotland), the first monarch of the Stuart dynasty and the only son of Mary Queen of Scots. Try as I might, I couldn't remember his exact dates, nor the circumstances of his death either, even though I had once studied the period in detail at school.

I soon discovered that James I had died at the age of 59 in 1625. The surprise was that one contributory factor in his demise was described as 'tertian ague'. This was a wholly unfamiliar term, what on earth could it be ? An ague I knew was a type of shivering fit associated with a fever, it comes from the Latin 'acuta febris' - (acute fever). I recalled reading of Sir Walter Raleigh defiantly puffing his pipe on Tower Hill and saying "It is the hour of the day when my ague comes upon me..."

So, a fever fit that appeared with clockwork regularity...
