Today, I invented an emotion

A writer friend of mine, yesterday, asked for suggestions on drugs that could be used to render a person unconscious when taken orally, but for a relatively short period of time ( about an hour). Many friends, myself included, responded with a variety of drugs that could plausibly be used for such a purpose, especially […]

from heaven above, beneath, and among, these dark waters filled this world if some dæmon in love bewrayeth more woe, what shall betiden of necessity make? till thou com’st home, thy sweet voice afar confounds me.​ — Written with assistance from the Creative Writer keyboard app for iOS.

Silence, Facebook!

Or, wait… Is it “Silence Facebook”? Are they silencing Facebook or telling Facebook to–what? They’re here? Oh! They’re here! Hello, reader! Did you recently update to the latest version of Facebook on your fancy, schmancy iPhone only to discover that it plays annoying bleeps and bloops every time you do anything? Well, talk about a […]

Presidential Playlists
