Trump

I’m late to the blog, which is an indicator of my day being stupidly busy. Not just real world stuff but writing too. Politics is in a crazy place in America and Donald Trump is acting beyond the point where it can be rationalised as “disruptive” or “non-traditional”. Tonight he’s leaving hospital, telling people that COVID isn’t to be feared. That was predictable. What wasn’t predictable was that he would claim this so early in his treatment. Talk about the stuff worthy of an epitaph…

Tomorrow I’ll be writing some more so I might be late to the blog again but I’ll be here to link to anything I produce, should you find my more considered writing worth a read.

Tonight I’m still trying to recover a bit from last week (and from today which hasn’t been easy, involving hills, wheelchairs, and being “outside”). Still hacking my way through The Long Dark, Episode 3. Completed all the tasks but rapidly running out of food in the game, to the point where it might no longer be possible to complete. I doubt if I’d start again. Episode 3 has been a bit too much of a grind.

Tomorrow, I also hope to get around to doing a little drawing. I’ve missed it. Then again, I’ve missed blogging in a meaningful way. I hate typing straight into the blog like this but, for the moment, it’s all the time I have…

Why Dunciad.com?

It’s a cool domain name and it was available. Yes, I know. Available. Crazy, isn’t it?

Really?

Yes. It also helps that it’s also my favourite satire written by Alexander Pope, one of the most metrically pure English poets who also knew his way around a crude insult or two. If you’ve not read it, you should give it a try.

So this is satire, right?

Can’t deny it. There will be some. But it’s also an experiment in writing and drawing, giving work away for free in order to see how many people are willing to support a writer doing his thing. It’s the weird stuff that I wouldn’t get published elsewhere in this word of diminishing demands and cookie-cutter tastes.
