the unseemly fickleness of retrogression

The Oddie Refractor II.

"Let It Go" in Lojban.

"...never in my darkest nightmares did I dream of encountering Plutonium kun." --Spike Japan

Big Eyes.

"He is falling, but the future will catch him. No: the future is falling, too. The future, too, is a kind of falling." --Lars Iyer, Nietzsche and the Burbs blog

"The infographics at the link show how many bombings, assassinations, prisoner rescues, and other military operations took place during the reporting period."

"We pay Lushootseed with our mind. We give it our mind. That’s how you pay the language."

"I thought at first of dressing the pigs up as millionaires and members of Parliament; but when you come to look close, there's more difference than you would imagine to be possible." --Chesterton

" I was reading this book, I kept on thinking of illegal people as a hyperobject..."

       "The Kraken

Below the thunders of the upper deep,
Far far beneath in the abysmal sea,
His ancient, dreamless, uninvaded sleep
The Kraken sleepeth: faintest sunlights flee
About his shadowy sides: above him swell
Huge sponges of millennial growth and height;
And far away into the sickly light,
From many a wondrous grot and secret cell
Unnumbered and enormous polypi
Winnow with giant fins the slumbering green.
There hath he lain for ages and will lie
Battening upon huge seaworms in his sleep,
Until the latter fire shall heat the deep;
Then once by men and angels to be seen,
In roaring he shall rise and on the surface die."


The view from Voyager I.

Trapeze: "Jury".
