This is the base of operations for my new writing endeavor! Feel free to poke around, but I imagine overall that this will mostly just be for myself so don’t feel too offended if I leave some things out occasionally.

Below, you’ll find an excerpt of the most recent post, and below that are the five most-recent posts after the first one. The full archive is available here.

Also I still haven’t come up with a clever name for this blog, so… bear with me as I slowly figure something out.

One of the best ways to compare things is to attempt to arbitrarily classify them and post that classification online for people to debate and tell you how wrong you are, so I’ve developed a Scale of Linguistic Integration that I will explain here.
