this is what happens when you let your demiurge drink

We may well be the ones to set this world on its ear / We may well be the ones / If not then why are we are we here? / Why the hell else are we here?

According to Wikipedia:
“An invention is a unique or novel device, method, composition or process. It may be an improvement upon a machine or product, or a new process for creating an object or a result.”

And according to my dictionary:
mis- is a prefix, meaning: Wrong; bad; erroneous.

You do the math. You put two and two together and see what kind of sandwich it makes. Oh, you don’t like sandwiches? What the hell is wrong with sandwiches? I put together a perfectly cromulent word-salad like that for lunch and you don’t even want to taste it? Damn, that’s cold.

Fine. I’ll spell it out for you.

We make ‘bad things’ sometimes. And since we can’t stop ourselves, we like to share them. From time-to-time, we actually make things that are ‘good’ as well. We share those too.

It’s not because we enjoy lying, or writing, or whatever. I mean, sure, it’s always fun when you get something nice out of it. No, we only do this for one, easy to understand reason: We cannot NOT do it. We literally cannot stop writing. If we could, don’t you think we would have normal lives? Normal jobs? Normal… brains?

This is the result of our weird, wrong, bad brains. Misinvention.

We will use this space to post stories, scripts, reviews, lies, slander, articles, code, numbers, formulae, minutiae, screeds, manifestos, heresies, anecdotes, rumors, gossip, love letters to dead gods, cover letters, death threats to our pets… and whatever else strikes our fancy.

What do you do, when you feel compelled to do terrible things? When your muse has been drinking? When you mentor is on a binge of crack cocaine and violent artistic urges? Well, if you’re anything like us, you make art. We sincerely hope you enjoy how we do it.
