So, after five years on hullomail for my voicemail needs (Still highly recommended), I've bitten the bullet and started to dogfood Vox ex Machina, my custom coded, twillo-backed personal voicemail system. Primary unique feature at the moment, integration with multiple google contacts accounts, and then notification sent to the first one the phoning number appears in. In theory, this means that messages from friends go to my personal account, and coworkers/clients end up in my work account. Next: Variant outgoing messages based on time/account statuses.

Zork Grand Inquisitor has a spell called Igram, the purpose of which was to turn purple things invisible.

Later on, you learn Deep Reverse Magic, which teaches you Margi, which turns invisible things purple.

And I keep seeing the various Bi Visibility advocates in friends streams, and wondering if whoever came up with this is thinking the same thing I am.

But mostly I consider making Margi-nalisation jokes that nobody that isn’t me will get, and those who don’t get them will get angry. So I don’t use them.

Besides, it’s not as good a word as the one for making vegetation grow, which was “Throck”, which I occasionally use as an expletive.

It's winter time, and there's a need to be afraid.
It's winter time, we let in Bob, and our fate is made.
And in our world of plenty, comes a certain oily stench.

It's a fucking bandaid thing,

At Christmas time.

But say a swear, swear for the other ones,
At bandaid-time, it's hard but they're having fun.
There's a world outside their window, it's a world they dread and fear
Where they could go out and help you, send some money out this year,
But the singers that all sing here are the modern, singing doom.
And tonight they're reaching out to guilt-trip you.

No peace and joy this christmas, in Westfield.
The only hope they'll have is being on Five.

Where comfort is to hear,
That their name is on the air,

How can they keep their name in print at all?

Here's to you,
Raise a glass to everyone.
Here's to them,
And all their years to come.

Keep their names in papers after all.


Feed our world - Let them know you'll buy this shit again

Feel our world - Let them avoid helping naught but them.

Heal our world - Thirty years lets do this all again
