Also, how could I forget Don Herztfeld's Oscar-nominated short film The World Of Tomorrow. It's a sixteen-minute meditation on life, love, death, and art edited around the ramblings of Hertzfeld's then-four year-old niece. While it's a first for Hertzfeld insofar as it is his first work with digital animation, his art style remains the same combination of crude stick figures and mind-blowingly gorgeous scenery.

I cannot recommend this enough, both on principle and in terms of showing just how weird you can get with science fiction if you try. It's also available on Netflix, if you've got that.

Yeah, there's sort of a negative feedback loop of not having enough people writing and active, so no one writes and posts on the site. But it's still around, and I know there are some plans to add some new stuff. I plan to write something and post it in the next week or so, so there's that.

But yeah, look around; there's a lot of really cool stuff here.

Re: Is this (Great) site dead? by GaffneyGaffney, 24 Feb 2017 12:30

THANK GOD THERE'S ONE OTHER PERSON ON HERE!

Sorry for yelling. Just excited.

I wouldn't say the site is dead per se, but activity has definitely reached a historic low.

Hi, I recently joined the site and I've noticed next to no activity on the site whatsoever. Can someone please explain to me if this site died? I know I'm probably just shouting into darkness.

I think, about the last question, it may be 'yes'. Because some customs may not breathe in air or without water. :)

I noticed that some of those do not have a tag Mónos. Maybe the Mónos could be added on the tag side.

Ok, so my basic idea is for the description in Howe's bestiary written similarly too the entry on Nigerian Lava Cats, except it's on a species of humanoid entities that exist in an unknown state of matter where the matter has enough energy to be gaseous and looks gaseous, but acts like a solid. The species would live in the Alps, with a subspecies in the Pyrenees mountains. Both species actively avoid humans and are critically endangered because of climate change. The species also can cause a sudden and rapid drop in the temperature of its surroundings as a defense mechanism, usually causing mild to severe frostbite.

Thoughts?

This is interesting to me as well. After a quick google search, i found this to be a more interesting take on genius loci, or protective spirits.

Check out Drowned Out, maybe some of you on here can relate.

The final piece of the second bunch of pieces. The third bunch of pieces will be along soonish, unless they arent.

For reference: Preverna represents the ecological season of early spring/late winter. Her name comes from the word "prevernal" with an "l" removed.
Polari represents the polar night. It's name comes from the word "polar" with an "i".
Seco represents the Dry season of the tropics, his name is the spanish word for "dry"
Lecana represents the tropical mild season, her name is a translation of "mild" into hindi/tamil/malay/indonesian (I translated it a while ago and I forget which language it actually is).
Serotina represents the ecological season of late summer, her name comes from the adjective "seritonal" with the "l" removed, she will be the star and namesake of the next piece. Stay tunes, and thanks for reading.

Stuff has started to, as the kids say, pop off. This piece follows Polari and will be continued in Lecana, the final piece of the second tetrad of this story.

The reason I'm posting these separately as opposed to a big long chunk is because each is supposed to be a separate view point, in sort of fragmented pieces, in different styles. Sort of a multimedia art project, if you'll excuse the pretension. This piece follows Preverna and precedes Seco.

Gonna be releasing these in little tetrads. This is the first piece of the second tetrad, it follows Autumn and will be followed by Polari.

This is a massive "fuck you" to my autoimmune bullshit which kept me down through most of january and prevented me from participating in hiscon2017. It's probably meaningful somewhere, but mostly it's just me being angry over being sick and about how I was treated as a sick and weird kid.

Anyways fuck my illness, fuck society and its ableist notions, and fuck the system.

Man I am just on a tear lately. This piece completes the first tetrad of the story, but I have many more installations planned.

Four Nine pieces up, more on the way, figured I'd make an author page.

This is that explanation piece I mentioned in the discussion page of this piece. Autumn will be along shortly.

by Dr SoloDr Solo, 28 Jan 2017 22:53

Summer, in which I'm some where between narrative and abstract poetry.
