The life of Avery Phergham

I really dislike the word "blogging". And "blog", in general. Weblog (or web log) sounds so much more profound, truthful, even poetic—right?

And people decided to go with the two-letter-shorter version.

Maybe because most people’s writing is not even close to being profound, truthful, or—God forbid—poetic? Eh.

Now, what I do here, this infrequent posting of insignificant updates—would you call it blogging? Because I certainly wouldn’t. Nor would I call it weblogging/web logging. It’s probably closer to, let’s say, pissing in the wind?
The thing is, I just like to let my few visitors know, from time to time, that I’m still alive and breathing. And that, pretty much, is all I do here.*


  • Still alive? Check.
  • Still breathing? Check. (gotta have "breathing", otherwise I could be just a brain in a jar wired to a computer or whatever they invent in the future)
  • Still working on that novel sounds and music for AblationX? Check.
  • Still having a hard time making decisions about anything? Check.
  • Still stuck with a cat (see a few posts below)? Check.

I hope this checklist pleases many, many minds.

Love you all, but only one I am in love with.

p.s.: Avery Phergham…? No info on the internets, huh? Well, don’t lose your whole day on it, it’s just a made up name with no search results on Google. For now :)

*disclaimer: I think I actually posted some useful information a few times, or even a sample of work, hence the "pretty much" insertion 8]

And God bless you all on the Earth…

I hate autumn. I hate this period that is depression all by itself. At least in winter you’ve got the snow. If you’re lucky, that is.

So here, video of a beautiful song for all of you, “Minerva” by Deftones.

Some of their songs are so monumentally special that they simply make me melt, and that’s something that will probably never change.
