Pixelated Glitchy Dreams

It’s been a pensive weekend in many ways. We have a 3-day weekend, for which I am very grateful, and I’ve rested up a lot and recuperated from the barrage of work lately. Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love my job, but neither me nor my wife have had a vacation in way too… Continue reading Pixelated Glitchy Dreams

A Modicum of Melancholy

So I was writing my favorite podcasts entry, and I put in a little aside about the podcast Nocturne and some of the more melancholy aspects of it. When I posted it on Mastodon, I put it under a CW (content warning) due to mentions of death, and realized I’d rather excise it from the… Continue reading A Modicum of Melancholy

Now it’s just fun and I like geeking out about… Continue reading Dead Letters, or How I Learned to Love the Digamma

Of Shields and Stasis

So I was thinking recently of the marvelous shields throughout Aeschylus’ Seven Against Thebes (aka Septem Contra Thebas, aka ἑπτὰ ἐπὶ Θήβας). The Septem was part of the prolegomena to my dissertation, where I looked at Polyneikes’ homecoming to Thebes, which only truly happens at his death. I spent a lot of time with the… Continue reading Of Shields and Stasis

My Favorite Music

This is another entry ported over from my writeFreely blog. I thought it would have a better home here. Music tastes, as most things, are subject to change, so this blog may get updated here and there. I made some updates, especially focusing on my Bandcamp haul in 2020-2021. Last updated 01 Dec 2021: updated… Continue reading My Favorite Music
