The Untold History of the United States - Prequel A

The first

The air smelled of dust
after so long

This year was the warmest
a thin veil on the greenhouse
and on the leaves

The first
just hit ground
knocked everything around

And it smelled almost like a wildfire
gray, smoky - a little bit of electricity and destruction

There were not enough drops to keep the dust from coming back down

And then came the rest.
And I saw you.

And it rained.

You're expendable

You're not required. Anyone can do the job.
You're just about hardware.
You've failed.

You can be replaced.

I look at your words
on printed page
and spoken

I hear the beauty
of your thought
and your ideas


I feel the warmth of Florida
I see the open computing facility

Your beauty is striking
and welcome
in a world of cold gray ghosts
and vaporwave


Surely we must be learning

We watch the play
you are staging

We hold the flower
to lay
upon the grave


I saw you
on Hardball

I thought you
were the most beautiful

Woman
In
The
World.

And for that momenbt. You were.

And then I found you in half muttered retreats
of the silent streets
of the network of humankind

And your simple ideas
about economy
and truth

Took on an old, comfortable shine
And I realized

That this beauty you had
is the beauty you have
and the beauty you will always hold

Not just for the Post.
But for the world.

Story of Your Life - Ted Chiang

Dr. Louise Banks is enlisted by the military to communicate with a race of aliens, known as heptapods (due to their 7-pointed radially symmetrical appearance), after they initiate first contact with humanity. The story revolves around Dr. Banks, and woven through it are remembrances of her daughter.

The heptapods have two distinct forms of language. Heptapod A is their spoken language, which is described as having free word order and many levels of center-embedded clauses. Understanding Heptapod B, the written language of the aliens, is central to the plot. Unlike its spoken counterpart, Heptapod B has such complex structure that a single semantic symbol cannot be excluded without changing the entire meaning of a sentence.

When writing in Heptapod B, the writer knows how the sentence will end. The phenomenon of Heptapod B is explained by the aliens' understanding of mathematics and Fermat's principle of least time.

Dr. Banks's understanding of the heptapods' writing sy…

Lower Your Eyelids to Die With the Sun - M83

This is for you. And just you.

Life was a bit more difficult than we thought. We had legal trouble, and financial trouble. We had children. We overcame abusive relationships and abusive chemicals and abusive governments and abusive people.

You went north. I went south. Others went east. Still others, west. We were together again, for only a short while. It was awful. My heart felt like it was being stabbed the entire time.

But there was a brief moment. The moment I saw, in your eyes - the love for another child - on the playground. The child in the swing. It was an unguarded moment we shared while we spoke of the church of jesus christ of latter day saints, and lesbian classical concert violinists and the weight of my return journey - 10 hours to drive to see you, 10 hours to drive back - hung over me like the sword of Damocles.

I didn't drink any coffee. Just had one now. And I smiled, and thought of you. I bet I could make a damn good cup of coffee. If you and I were together again, I would make it for …

Bureau Veritas

I took pictures of your license plate
and found your property
in the North Georgia Mountains

I found your machine guns
and your Ted Cruz for President T shirt
and your Donald Trump campaign contributions.

But I didn't find you.

You wanted change.
You wanted a champion.
You followed Trump.

But Trump was no champion.

I stood there in front of the poll
Watching.

For the Truth.
We both still seek it. You, and I .

Dear Governor Romney,

I write to you in support of Evan McMullin, for whom, and with respect to the Party of Theodore Roosevelt, I feel exemplifies the constitutional and creative values emboldened in all of us by our founding fathers.

Mitt, I know you can hear this. I'm going to lay it on the line for you. He made it through BYU while pulling 30 hours a week with the CIA. Basically, Governor Romney, you can light this dude on fire and he will keep working.

And there's something else. And it's not just Evan's excellent TEDx Talk . Which. Will one day be a TED Talk.

Gov. Romney, you are the architect for healthcare reform. We followed your lead. You have led us in many ways, spiritual, and otherwise. The party of Theodore Roosevelt, is dead. Please help us to find another home. A place where mafia Mayors don't pressure FBI Bureau chiefs to break 50 years of tradition to attempt to influence an election.. I mean, seriously? An investigation based on a gos…

Time to Get to Work

Here's the thing. It might take one, two hours of phone bank. But God, didn't we do it for Bernie? And yea, it's a good idea to actually listen to Bernie. I always take those who can wield the power of sorcery, very seriously indeed. Especially those who have commanded the snows of Vermont and witnessed the Glory of Norway. (yes, I'm thinking about you).


And listen. It's fun working for her. I'm on the inside, I love it. She's got a great sense of humor. Much better than that Orange Julius. .. I'm talking about Kos. You bastard. Give me my account back.

But we must see it for what it truly is. It is our chance. And what would we say of ourselves, if come next Tuesday, we are all thrown into Trumpworld, we're fucked. Seriously, hardcore, rough sex, nonconsensually fucked.

Donnie Darko - The Black Five Review

Donnie Darko was released on September 11, 2001 and its vision of doomsday, science fiction and dark trageday has made it , almost from day one — a cult classic. In an early review — Oppenheimer of New York Times writes, “Like gathering storm clouds, Donnie Darko creates an atmosphere of eerie calm and mounting menace”.

By chance, On October 2, 28 days ago — I watched Donnie Darko. At the moment in the film a figure in the dark said. In 28 days, 6 hours, 42 minutes, and 12 seconds, the world will end I noticed my wall clock was the exact same time as the clock in the film. I decided that the review should be published exactly at 6:42 am this morning, and on social media, I quietly informed everyone that the world will come to an end at precisely that point. I was going to publish this at that moment, but I overslept.
Where’s Darko?

Based on multiple universe cosmology, which seems to be a good way to go— the film may be one of the first coherent and inspired forays into the real impli…
