Araeallia



World War III, the quick international devastating war in april 2006, is over; the aftermath is a destroyed/killed ozone. Planet earth is undead. Sunlight is lethal and human race has been world widely mutated in 2 stages : a huge crowd of omnivorous zombies and a minority of veganvampires.

It's present time (2007) and since then, there's an ultraviolent quarrel between mentioned zombies and vampires:
zombies want to devour vampires' brains and insides, and vampires are defending from them, killing them in self defense or biting them for injecting them blood and so, "un-zombies-ing" them. it seems veganvampires are losing but there's still one hope to earth: a girl where remained life-essence is contained.

Araeallia, a veganvampire, is learned about the existence of that woman but she didn't believe it, even when she saw her face to face .....

This is the real state of the world right now. The world as we see and perceive it right now is a dream. We are dreaming this living-ozone state, but in real life we are killing us in the middle of a raw war.

You are in a bright cave.
A small yellow bird sits in front of you
A mean ogre is approaching rapidly


What is your command? attack



Awwwwwww you just killed the small yellow bird :(

Carmens post on old 8 bit games brought this very traumatic d&d memory back.



The Art of Rewriting Old Games
October 19th, 2007 by Geoff Draper in

Take some of the 8-bit games you enjoyed as a kid and update them for the new generation.

The opening lines of Nellan Is Thirsty (Figure 1), an old text adventure game for 8-bit home computers, say “You are in a room called the Bank. A giant carpet on the floor says Welcome....The BANKER, Mr. Klinkoyn, looks sleepy.” If you don't recognize those words, you're not alone. It is one among thousands of open-source programs written during the 1970s and 1980s that have gone out of popular play.

even rhinestones locate sleep

the shelflife of attaction
falls, a season's shining
eases

winter approaches
as the point
of needing nothing
perfectly

one limbs along sans leafage

behold this accidental portrait
looming in the psyche
that attests to valid golds and reds
and pale sweet yellowing

ceilings form an overhang
of shelter

threads of wind brush surface
thus insinuate another sphere

EVERYTHING

Everything in these walls
That confines my thoughts,
Tramples the systematized
Files I wish I never sought.

The rush coagulates at once
In piles of decaying debris;
I embrace everything 'cause
Everything envelops me.

The BBC in Trouble

So, it appears that even the world-renowned, British institution - the BBC is not exempt from government cuts, redundancies and (in my view) a resultant lowering of quality. Inevitably industrial action looks likely to follow.

In the UK, we now have to accept that our health service (NHS) is a poor version of what it was, compromising patients' health and suffering a massive increase in bureaucracy and making redundant, essential health and care workers. We have seen strikes from the civil service and, more recently from the Royal Mail. The current Labour government are determined to cut back on all public services, opting for profitability over quality of service. Individual workers and users of public services have been treated abysmally - their views and their lives are not taken into consideration.

The BBC has been at the forefront of television for decades. It has provided superb documentaries, unbiased news reportage and has retained quality in areas such as drama and film. In today's multi-channel environment, where quality is often compromised for the sake of quantity, the BBC has acted as a standard bearer of quality. The BBC has a tradition of educating the public (both TV and radio) and to lose this would be disastrous for the status of British Media and Journalism and for the general public. I have seen the quality of health and care reduce immensely since "essential" cuts and redundancies have been made in the NHS and related health providers, to "improve services" as it has been claimed. I believe that the same will occur with the BBC.

It may be argued that these cuts are to enable a strong economy in the UK. My argument is that this is a false economy, that does not consider the long-term effects of reduced quality.

Where I Fit In

Where  I Fit In

15 Oct 2007

These are Barren Times (Emmigraton song)

These are barren times
You gotta go headfirst into the
loneliness
Put the boot in
when your colleagues down

Up end your mobile phone
found traces in motorway glitches
You gotta duck 'n' cover
while the holes in the net
get bigger

Ooh! That expressionless cyber sex
relationships by proxy, via
mechanical suggestions
that someone else is out there
Harsh and clever on the surface

Beneath, as lonely and frightened
as you are

See the land
the clearest indication yet
We're farther from the beasts
The beasts that we will necessarily meet

an open window lets in seventy
degrees a beat before midnight

Indian School Road, now wide enough
to accommodate the range of pitch points

I imagine the coordinates of named stars
can be seen a few miles from this place

these walls enclose the change of season
houseguests come to represent

I continue to erase what interferes with
spontaneity in taking breath

late night nanosounds resemble
insects jumping rope with dental floss

censure (hush)
arrives at garden

is heavy with standpoints

midnight prayers evolve
into commitment as
stillness conforming
with a modesty Platonic

one would dream then
keep the fathering
of mist to turn
dew breathed across the green

young evidence comprising
emblem of a happiness
held still and seen
and loved (a talisman)

showing renewal (would
breath open) for others
along the stream
