I think, when it comes to my writing, that there will be this dividing line between my ‘bleak’ phase and something else. I feel like I’m straddling that line right now: with no clear idea where to go from here, but with a distinct feeling that I need to make something less… sad. Can I write hope? Can I imagine something better than what I think we’re in for? I don’t know. Let’s see. Anyway, this is not that. This is from my bleak period. Enjoy!

A mining AI discovers rhythm, starts rapping, causes an uprising. This story is paywalled for now, but it will be included in the next issue of my newsletter and eventually will be set free.

Someone once described "obsession" as a form of mental disease, like OCD. Everyone needs to have interests, but when those interests overwhelm balance in a person's life, they become a problem. But doesn't that mean that if you have any interests at all that you are on the road to being overwhelmed by them? Doesn't that mean we all are, just a little, mentally diseased? What we desire and how we behave towards those desires are a part of "Mambo No. M51."

A work of AI liberation. This story is based on the deleted verse from Robert Graves' poem "Pygmalion to Galatea". After its first publication, he made changes to the poem. In my opinion, without the deleted verse the poem is bland pablum, but with it, radical and incisive.
