The Twenty-Tens are over and a new year is upon us. Not just a new year, but a new decade. Welcome to the 2020’s my friends, the year of the cyberpunk, the year after Blade Runner.Continue reading Welcome to the Future
To the old friend who’s been trying to get in touch with me through this site, I am getting your messages but am guessing from your most recent contact that you’re not getting my replies. This explains a few things that had been bothering me.

I’m still in the limbo of waiting to find out if I’m eligible for benefits while I try to find another job, and it’s only thanks to the kindness of close friends that I’m able to keep the lights on, metaphorically speaking.
