Digital

This morning begins with a screeching alarm

And the lost-wallet panic of a dream snatched away.

I seek pity from a digital clock

Without face, or arms, or a heartbeat of its own.

(There is only the droning hum of its light,

A garish green that flashes, “2:Late”)

 

I remember when clocks had second hands

Long, golden warnings of minutes to come

Abandoned for numbers that blink and change

Without gears, or chimes, or…

Stitches

It is so exhilarating to put the costume on for the first time.

 

Another tangible, visible asset joins all these other ethereal ideas that have surrounded who the character is. You read the script, and those lines go through your imagination and you see what you want her to be, but then you look in the mirror, and boom!   

 

The costume is always one of those last steps before you need to take a deep breath and take the plunge. All that homework, memorization,…

Fearful Symmetry, Chapter One

Fearful Symmetry Chapter One

I woke up in St. Mary’s ER, on one of those gurneys in a small treatment room.  My head ached.  So did my knees and right ankle.  

 

“Bran?”
Brannon, dozing in a chair across from my bed, sat up straight.   Her matte-black hair was smooshed and limp; most of her magenta lipstick had transferred onto the mouth of her Dr. Pepper bottle.  As she stood up, I saw her lace shrug was missing and her…

#72 Passover Traditions from Jewish Cultures Worldwide--Guest Blog by Rachel Landau

This Monday is the first night of Pesach, or Passover. In the days when the Temple was standing, every Jew was required to make a pilgrimage to the Temple and make an offering there. Around the world and on six continents, Jews still follow the same structure for a Passover seder, as outlined in the Haggadah nearly two thousand years ago. But Jews are not monolithic: each community adds its own variations and customs to the mix.





A picture from the Sarajevo Haggadah,… Continue

The Electric Pentacle Challenge

I was thinking this could be the inspiration for a tinkerer's challenge/contest for a steampunk convention. The best concept for an Electric Pentacle wins some prize. -Especially if you could get a panel with people like Datamancer and Jake von Slatt to do the judging



"The "electric pentacle" is a fictional electronic device invented by author William Hope Hodgson and used in several of his short stories about Carnacki the Ghost-Finder.

The device consists of a series of wires… Continue
