Remember, O Thou Man Week 3: A Lenten Meditation, as sketched out by the Hand of the Artist In A Soul I Once Knew

Title kinda says it all. If you’ve read the sister post, you sort of know what I’m about to do. If not, I don’t really know how to explain it to you, so I’m just gonna launch in. Actually, I take that back. I think this one needs some more clarity. Although first: hi. How […]

Remember, O Thou Man Week Two: I swear this discussion of Hadestown is Really Quite Relevant

IT IS REALLY QUITE RELEVANT. If I were a character in Greek mythology, I would swear on the River Styx. Just…read it. And then I dare you to tell me it’s not applicable. Also hi. How are you, my friend? Are you taking care of yourself? Just because life is busy and it’s Lent doesn’t […]

Remember O Thou Man Week One: Judas, Despair, and a Smattering of Fan Folktion

Tallyhi my friends! Now before you say anything: I did actually mean to start this out punctually. I meant to post this first post of the ‘event’ last Monday, or even on Ash Wednesday. Unfortunately, though, your girl fell horribly sick with the Doomful Virus that Shall Not Be Named. I’ve had it before and […]

Announcing Remember, O Thou Man 2023 (+ a few other things)

How is it already almost Lent again. Ahem. I assume a lot of you know the drill already, but in case you don’t, allow me to explain. And elaborate. And bring out new graphics. And ramble about some unrelated stuff. Tallyho! Lent is a Formidably Neat Thing So Lent, of course, is the period of […]

Farewell to the Liturgical Season of Christmas–macabre Victorian style

Okay, I am well aware that this post may have been far more apropos earlier on. But I didn’t think of it till now and I didn’t want to wait another year to do it because I really want to share these with you guys. But also Christmas is not quite over, liturgically speaking (it […]

Know the Novel Part Two: Within ‘And After That, The Dark’

Tallyhi, yis’ beauts. (To use the Colm Mcguinness terms. Erm, the latter bit. Tallyhi is a Grim only thing. I think.) I think the title is fairly self explanatory. And unfortunately, I haven’t much time to introduction and gallivant and all that, as I’m writing this in a stolen half hour on Sunday evening. So […]

A Bit of a Ramble on Folk Burials + other folk/Catholic myth thingummies (because Death = Hallowe’en…? Kinda?)

Hello friends! Yes, I’m aware I inexplicably did not post last week. DON’T JUDGE ME. I was…busy. If you’re noticing a pattern as far as the weeks I tend to accidentally miss always being folk weeks…it’s ’cause it takes absolutely forever to write a folk song post. I have most of the songs I use […]

Strange Trails–new delightful media discoveries and some bittersweet life discoveries into the bargain

Hello, my friends! I hope you’re well. I am managing. It’s been quite the week, to be honest. All my coworkers suddenly had health or family emergencies and had to dip out as a result, so I’ve been working ten hour days. I mean, I’m happy to do it, because of course they need to […]

‘Sup guys. How’s your lives been? In no particular order, mine has been chaotic, dreadful, and splendid all at once. The dread and the chaos I will not be explaining in any real detail, but the splendid bits I’d like to tell you about. I think this post is just going to be a general […]
