expanding markets and selling sex
07 january 2012 | essay

Sex sells. That simple statement has been used throughout the ages to justify lewd advertisements and other forms of communication, wh[...]ether they are through pictures, videos or other mediums. But while other industries, from cigarette companies to Hollywood, use it passingly to entice people into considering a product they otherwise would not, there is an industry and culture which bases its existence upon this simple fact. That industry is pornography.

A provocative essay I wrote in high school, and touched up for presentation here, that take a look at the porn industry: what makes it tick, how it has innovated and the people involved.

filugori: the long tale
11 december 2011 | short story

This was originally called "Human War" and was written mostly during high school. It focused on Bi and several of his crew as the[...]y journeyed across a galaxy filled with alien races, adventure and glory. It was fun-loving, energetic and a bit schizophrenic. While I loved writing it, there were too many borrowed influences for it to be a viable story in the long term and I did a 180 when creating Filugori, which is influenced by this but is much darker.
