Despair - Drown

Despair - Drown

On this empty point out on the edge of the ocean, beneath a starless sky, I have scrawled the words "I have come here to drown" in the sand, and watched the tide wash the letters away.

Internet - Desert Bus 2019

Internet - Desert Bus 2019

Been almost 12 hours now since the end of Desert Bus. We raised $864 753 this year, an absolutely record-shattering amount. It has been a WILD 6 days.

Desert Bus benefits children around the world in hospitals. A key part of treatment is quality of life. Taking what for many children is a profoundly terrifying experience, and trying to give them a slice of normalcy. Even Canadian hospitals are on the list (Calgary Children's, Vancouver Children's, The Stollery to give a few indications.)

West Marches - Ceridwen's Epilogue

West Marches - Ceridwen's Epilogue

Ceridwen sits on the Throne of Black Brambles Eternal, around her, the dead souls of the Tirondian army, the lost, and the wretched. Slowly, over time, she begins to raise her wild demon armies, waging her shadow war against The Prince of Change. In time, she prevails, The Lodge is Restored, and she sits alone staring at the space between stars, singing a strange song that carries on the wind and through the deepest recesses of the earth.

And she dreams... of her glimmering phoenix friend, her ranger friend, and tales of the Whiskey Riders.

West Marches - Price

West Marches - Price

Revenge. Hate. Pain. Vengeance. Rage. Chaos. Destroy.

The words urge her on. Whirling round and round her head.

Kill him.

Kill HIM.


Cacophonous, and constant. But something has hardened in her. Moons before this, the strangeness of the Lodge made even her stalwart heart tremble. The unknown whispers, the songs and stories. The allure of forbidden mysteries had always been there, but it had been tempered by a healthy preservational instinct.

Now, that instinct had turned to something bleaker.

Politics - Conservative Platform Dissected

Politics - Conservative Platform Dissected

As per each election, I like to do a deep dive on the Conservative Platform. The reason I like to do this is because it traditionally is the most obfuscated one, it's the one that for the last 3 elections has been filled with the most circumventive language, might be outright incorrect, and this year, has been released so paralyzingly late that literally all the advanced poll days will be complete before we get a public analysis.

So.

The actual Platform is available here. I should note that I looked at 3 major news outlets and nobody linked to it, I had to go digging through the Conservative website to find it. https://cpc-platform.s3.ca-central-1.amazonaws.com/CPC_Platform_8.5x11_FINAL_EN_OCT11_web.pdf

I also downloaded this exact version of it to do my analysis. If anything changes or has any discrepancy between this version and an 'updated' version, I'll be able to changelist and track that data.

Let's dive into it. Forewarning, because it's a pdf, the formatting is gonna be REAL WONKY.
