Would Moby Dick have been the same if Captain Ahab just went out to sea for the sake of, well … going out to sea? No. Sometimes we need to know what exists, before we decide if we want to search for it.
Inspired by the novels of old, this tag index will help you find posts based on medium, style, topic, and genre.
Note: This is a fairly new addition to my site, so bear with me as I organise everything. Currently, some tags might not contain many posts.
#innermonologues (because inanimate objects deserve to be heard)
[more to be added]
#abstract (%^& 555555555)
#absurd (umbrellas, candles, umbrellas that talk, um … um … rainbows!)
#futurism (“Beep! Beep! Beep! I am a talking elevator! You really push my buttons! Ha. Ha. Model number 5689 just made a funny. Brought to you by the ‘Better Future Elevator Service of section 99D’ … Stand by for jettisoning …”)
#poignant (I forgot to warn you that this would be an annotated index)
#romance (“K. I. S. S. I. N. G …”)
#scifi (woooooooo … space, the final frontier, aliens with tentacles …)
#surreal (Elephants with spider legs, talking squirrels, that sort of thing)
#philosophy (my thoughts on living the good life, or “la dolce vita”. I try to avoid all that dense, academic morality stuff though. I reckon it’s what drove Nietzche mad. Seriously, he went crazy, even hugged a horse. And in public! Look it up. Of course, it might also have had something to do with syphilis, but still.)
#cats (I don’t know what it is, it’s just that their eyes are so … hypnotic … Must obey cat overlords. Cat people come soon from out of the sky, take over planet Earth … Must pay them attention. Must pat overlords whenever they request it. Must prepare litter tray, cardboard boxes, bubble wrap, and liverwurst …)
#English (the language, mostly)
#prague (where I lived for eight years of my life, well, I suppose it would be difficult to live someone else’s life there wouldn’t it? Or anywhere for that matter. Maybe Talented Mr. Ripley style could be possible, or by using some kind of highly-advanced, futuristic virtual reality system, but I mean, in what universe would it be possible to actually live someone else’s life? In a core existential sense that is. Would it involve completely losing any sense of your original self? Then that second life wouldn’t be someone else’s life anymore would it? Remind me not to get lost following philosophical tangents within parantheses in the future.)
#theatre (I am a playwright after all)
#updates (the latest on my creative process, works in progress, and my life, basically)
