The Welfare State has Failed

Sitting here in the ER for nearly ten hours now, it’s hard not to contemplate our public health system and come to the conclusion that we, as a society, have utterly failed to maintain the welfare state ideals of the 70’s. How did we get to this point?

Soundcloud page (and new songs!)

I created a SoundCloud account to host my music.

Three new songs

Spaced Out Dracula

Still swimming in the realm of music production, this is my new song, “Spaced Out Dracula”.

Ten years

This week marks the completion of my tenth year at Turbulent as a software programmer. It also marks the completion of my tenth year as a software programmer, period. Time to reflect on that period a bit.
