Howdy, I'm Elijah One and I'm some sort of human, assumedly. That's not important. Don't worry about it.

I like writing and also making things in general. Such things are available for viewing at ELJ1.CO. I'd like to make more games and art and so on, but I'm sorely lacking in practice.

I also like: Gods, Ruins, Humans, Ecology, Culture, History, Religion, Obscure Knowledge of All Shades, the Overlaps Between the Above Subjects, and other things of that nature.

world history is extremely fun to read because it really drives home the point that no country has ever had any idea what they're doing ever.

Politics is, in essence, just an ascended form of schadenfreude. It's endlessly entertaining as long as it's not happening to you.

Dotgrid is apparently pretty good for making Goetia seals with!

Here's Buer's, Teacher of Moral and Natural Philosophy as well as the Logic Art, the Virtues of Plants and Herbs, and Healer of All Distempers in Man. Quite fitting for Merveilles!

Solarpunk but with 50s aesthetic instead of Art Noveau

Think neo-50s aesthetics but instead of it being a fallout style wasteland, everyone is still alive and the planet is still habitable.

The 2050s will see a doo-wop and general 50's aesthetic resurgence, mirroring the renewed economic prosperity in the US brought about by socialist reform and the creation of millions of new jobs combatting and reversing the effects of climate change.

I wanna see a hard sci-fi movie with an entirely doo-wop soundtrack. I wanna see a beat up spaceship float through the void while "I Only Have Eyes For You" plays.

What's a good, cheap, lightweight laptop? I'm probably only going to be using it for typing and internet, I have a desktop for more heavy duty stuff. It HAS to be able to work when not connected to the internet tho, so not a Chromebook.

I like to imagine a room full of FBI agents having to sift through posts on the fedi like "Yoshi has a stinky bussy" everyday to find one post worth logging

Finished reading Three Parts Dead by Max Gladstone, fun and pulpy. Good if you like urban fantasy legal thrillers about hell lawyers reincarnating dead gods.

I love snow because it completely changes the color palette of the world, even the light has a new and different quality because now it's being reflected from everywhere.

Open ended question: what are the Ten Triumphs?

did I ever post the boulder room

the idea is, it's a room where you go to appreciate the boulder

Prayer wheels have always fascinated me because they're essentially automation technology applied to religious ceremony. Same technology as windmills or waterwheels, but turning energy into devotion.

In case any of you needed to brush up on your Hat and Parasol Flirtations

I am so glad the #fediverse exists. It is so vibrant and alive these days. For all the bullshit and insanity here it feels human in a way that no capitalist run - ad supported - venture funded space ever has.

working on ideas for a new family of cellular automata. i want to do systems which read relative, rather than absolute, neighbor states as i think this would result in some interesting and beautiful organic behavior.
