Cool -- I have a new masthead. And thanks to John Fenderson's expert tutelage I didn't render the rest of the blog into an unintelligible slurry of eye-jarring fonts and mismatched text-blocks in the process!

The masthead was created by Zindra. She debated between creating something sleekly high-tech or something eerie and xenomorphic; the latter won out, and I couldn't be happier with the result.

Nice mast head Mac, here is some poetry to match it.

by Edgar Allan Poe

Take this kiss upon the brow!
And, in parting from you now,
Thus much let me avow-
You are not wrong, who deem
That my days have been a dream;
Yet if hope has flown away
In a night, or in a day,
In a vision, or in none,
Is it therefore the less gone?
All that we see or seem
Is but a dream within a dream.
I stand amid the roar
Of a surf-tormented shore,
And I hold within my hand
Grains of the golden sand-
How few! yet how they creep
Through my fingers to the deep,
While I weep- while I weep!
O God! can I not grasp
Them with a tighter clasp?
O God! can I not save
One from the pitiless wave?
Is all that we see or seem
But a dream within a dream?

Alas, poor Yorick. I knew him, Horatio,
A fellow of infinite jest....


Eye of newt and wing of bat....


Definitely a gothic posthuman future in store! Looks (weirdly) great, Mac!
