The Darkener's Lair

Almost as soon as the thief breathes his last breath, a cloud of sinister black fog envelops him, and when the fog lifts, the carcass has disappeared.

TOMC —

I’m feeling feelings rn so I’ll just take a big dump right here and feel better. I’m sick of people who fuck the air quality for a 100+ mile radius with arson. I’m sick of living in an air-basin. I’m sick of people who only trust those who cater to their confirmation bias. I’m sick […]

Control —

Why do some people seek to control others? Because of fear. Why fear? Because of insecurity. Why insecurity? Because of doubt. Why doubt? Because the inevitable ticking of the clock and natural growth sprouts new knowledge that may conflict with one’s old beliefs. When a mind is in conflict with itself, the weak will take […]

Religion —

Much of what comprises organized religion has kept humans from progressing as a species. I’ve experienced this in my own life and I’ve seen it as an observer of this place. The problem is primarily the function of interpretation and bias. These problems are enmeshed with human defects such as greed. Together, the innocent teachings […]

Balance is Contagious —

Balance is EVERYTHING. If we can learn balance, we can undo what has been done. If we can learn balance, we can remember who we are. If we can learn balance, we will re-sync with nature. If we can learn balance, we will realize that peace has always existed. If we can learn balance, and […]

Buy —

You can’t buy me This flows right through me You can’t gamble for forgiveness All of your attempts at this All of the points you’ve missed: You’ve spent this whole life running from yourself And now your eyes are an empty shell It’s quite obvious to all that you cry to and tell And I’ll […]

School —

Today’s the first day of school for my boys. Though it’s only been 35 minutes, and they’re just in the other room, learning from their laptops, I’ve already checked off three items on my to-do list for today. I’m almost lost; not sure what to do. I usually have had at least 3 ‘opportunities’ to […]

I don’t remember writing this, but I know I did —

I have faith in the world music community because I’ve learned what makes one thrive. People that care about each other – a fellowship of sorts, with a strong passion for the music – the art, the movement, the microcosms that form within the whole. Virgin sounds are created and repeated for consumption by people, […]

A Planet of Ideas —

With the advent of the Internet, we are no longer a planet of nations. We are a planet of ideas. A planet of people who congregate based on personal interest. The lines have been blurred in our minds, and that’s important to acknowledge when it comes to realizing how collective, global change happens. The world […]

U.S. Gun Obsession —

Actually, I believe America’s gun obsession is rooted in the Constitution. “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms shall not be infringed.” There’s historical reasoning behind America’s tight grip on the right to bear arms, but it’s not rooted […]

“…And What Have We Learned?” —

The COVID-19 pandemic has wrought sickness, death and fear to the human species. The scientists of the world have created a vaccine, specifically designed to inoculate humans against the virus. Less the anti-vaxers, humans everywhere have spotted a bright shining light in the distance – one of hope for the future. One that broadcasts that […]

Leenode —

With so much drama in the IRC, it’s kinda hard managing a community. But I, somehow, someway, keep logging into irssi like every single day May I kick a little channels for the Lees, And make a few ends as I apologeeze through, Two in the hashtags and the channel’s not jumpin’, cause they left […]

Insurrection vs. BLM Protests —

God I love reading the news. /s “The federal government was unprepared for this insurrection, even though it was planned in plain sight on social media for the world to see,” Maloney said. “And despite all the military and law enforcement resources our government can call upon in a crisis, security collapsed in the face […]

Bitch Mustard —

The other night I came across this post on Reddit and instantly lyrics started pouring into my head. This morning while riding my motorcycle I filled it out a bit. I have a beat and basic vocal melody too, just not recorded yet. Who wants to collab? =D “Bitch Mustard” I don’t really want none […]

Quarter ’til New —

My desktops, both virtual and physical, have been a mess. As has my mind. The pattern is still somewhat of a mystery but the symptoms are showing exceptionally bright this time around. I feel as if it’s all at a climax, I’m glad I took that motorcycle ride this morning (mitigation can be fun, even […]

Anti-vax —

I think I get it now I think I figured it out It’s all pretty simple Pitiful You don’t care about anyone else You only care about yourself Yeah, I caught you, now I Know all your why’s and how’s You don’t care about anyone else You only care about yourself You don’t think about […]

30 Years Ago Today —

Over the years I’ve written a few posts about what this band meant to me. It’s funny that even as I was writing about ToTD back then, that the band was putting a second, completely separate and just as powerful impression on me through my learning about Andrew Wood and the core of how things […]

I know —

I know I know I know Nothing And that’s o.k. With me I learn more every day I’ve wondered why my dreams Never became reality But now I wonder how this negativity Ever had a hold on me Ever had a hold on me Funny how Long time ago I knew it all… But the […]

Spam / Junk Mail —

I’ve felt for a while now that scanning my spam/junk mail folder for legitimate mail has an inherent negative affect on my mood. I use SpamAssassin on my mailserver which takes care of the bulk of my junk mail. Even with this protection, as most know, a good amount still comes through – and introduce […]
