This thing has been the elephant in the room long enough. I’ve made several attempts over the years to try and write this – to the point where I have several different drafts, with several different takes on it, saved to different hard drives which date as far back as 2005; all of which reflect who I was and my changing and evolving opinions of the thing at the times they were written.

In the early spring of 2015, I attempted to hash all of this back out – and then backpedaled, and just dropped it, because of the release of the movie Jupiter Ascending.

So, uh, now people can actually comment on my mirrored entries on DW. >.< Sorry about that. I am feeling a bit better than yesterday. Oh, and I'm finally getting my DNA/genealogy test did. Current Mood:

I am getting over yet another bout of upper respiratory junk, I am on antibiotics yet again, and I feel really crappy this morning.

The company I work for pushed out a major update last month, and it, uh, hasn’t quite gone according to plan, which has added to the stress. I feel like we keep passing this junk back and forth.

I am going to finally start posting a lot more of the occult/philosophical/esoterica stuff that I used to back in the old days. It may seem a little strange to those who started following my blog(s) in the years since then. My background is primarily Chaote/Hermetic/Technopagan. Feel free to comment with any questions, and I will do my best to answer them.

Oh well, back to the salt mines!

A climate change-fueled switch away from fossil fuels means the worldwide economy will fundamentally need to change.

So for anyone reading this blog who may not be aware, over the past year and a half I’ve been posting more regularly in my blog, numb3r_5ev3n, since Vladimir Putin assimilated LiveJournal. Most of my blog content from 2004-2017 is there. (And for those of you reading this over on DreamWidth: Hello!)

I was on Tumblr for a while, but as a Gen Xer that platform was probably never cut out for me anyway. Too many rampant memetic virii, too much noise to signal. It’s basically the opposite side of the coin of 4chan…and really, the less said about 4chan right now, the better.

Facebook is going the way of LiveJournal, by the way of Cambridge Analytica – and it was no longer cool once your 8th grade math teacher, your old youth councilor, your great-aunt, and her bridge club joined, anyway.

What bothers me is, Facebook is not so much of a communication platform as it is a dopamine hamster wheel, with algorithms intended to push you exactly where its influencers want you to go. But I feel like one could make that argument of most of the latter social media services, actually.

I deactivated my Facebook account back in March, but it’s been really hard because of how pervasive it is in everyone’s life now, and how everyone is using it to connect. Maybe I’ll continue to hold out, we’ll see.

I still have Instagram and Twitter. I’m on Discord and Slack, which remind me of the IRC days of yore. Frankly, I’m consuming way more Vlog content than anything else, recently.

Most of my time has been taken up with work and stuff. I’m trying to get back into the groove of actually writing, and writing regularly – including content which at this time is ten years or more overdue. More on that, coming soon.

Current Mood:

This is a test of my crossposting settings from my WordPress account to my Dreamwidth account. In the event of an actual post, you would be seeing updates on current events, hobbies, mood, etc. This is only a test.

FIRST: A PDF of the Writ of Mundamus that has been filed to the Supreme Court to investigate the allegations of Russian interference in the 2016 US election.

SECOND: The first steps to impeachment are already starting to go forward.

FOURTH: Trump’s tantrum over Ivanka’s clothing line being dropped by various retailers. Kellanne Conway tried to push her merch, and there were so many reports to the Government Ethics website that it crashed.

THIRD: Trump flunky and Utah Rep Jason Chaffetz actually bolted when the crowd at a town hall started chanting, “THIS IS YOUR LAST TERM!”

AAAND Trump’s  bigoted immigration ban was struck down again.
