Beamed out of Berlin, welcome to the blog I've been calling "Post-Google" since 2005.
I don't post too often anymore and the things I do post are written at odd hours or on my morning commute. This is not fine writing, these are in no way essays - just sketches of thoughts. Works for me.

interview with platypus down author
In an interesting interview with "PLATYPUS DOWN" author (who currently remains unnamed) he said something that really resonated with me (as a Gen XY guy):
"You know... when you are 5 years old and you see the NOTHING wipe out Fantasia... that is traumatic - a really devastatingly traumatic experience, and it sticks with you - so you go on a mission, almost automatically - to stave-off, to defeat this Nothing and all its servants."
he said some other stuff about Jim Henson, George Lucas, and Steven SPielberg (also Tim Burton and Sam Shepard) whom I think he referred to as his "real cultural fathers" but the link is down, I'll repost the link IF i can fin it again... (Not even sure where it is from - Eastern Europe?)

This blog began in Seattle in 2005 and relocated to Berlin in 2006 where we still are to this very day.
