War, Science, and Philosophy in a Fractured World.

A Letter To My Readers

Never fear, this is actually good news for a change. I am making good progress on a companion web site to Doug’s Darkworld, where much of my writing will be available in a more organized and coherent fashion. This will both simplify this site and allow me to concentrate more on what I do best, which is writing. Some of which I hope to sell, which will give me even more time to write. Muahahahaha. Sorry, I digress. Being a starving artist may have its  youthful romantic appeal, but past fifty, the appeal dims rapidly. You can quote me on that.

Resuming, what I want to ask my readers, is this. Are there any posts and/or topics on Doug’s Darkworld that you have particularly enjoyed? What topics would you like to see in the future? My reader’s suggestions will help me what to put on the companion site, and will in fact guide me in selecting what future posts to write about. And maybe I suppose what topics to avoid. All comments appreciated, I always read the comments and try to reply to them on a regular basis even. And yes, I’m well aware that a few promised posts haven’t materialized yet. Remind me about those too. The wheels may grind slowly at Doug’s Darkworld, but they grind exceedingly fine.

Thanks in advance. On Wednesday another post will appear here, and with luck I can keep up at least three posts a week going forward. There’s been fascinating developments in space exploration, the American Empire is in free fall, Obama has shown his true colours, the health care debate continues, swine flu explodes, and the Antichrist was spotted in Cleveland. Meanwhile the mainstream media continues twenty four hour coverage of hoaxes, corporate talking points, and rehashed White House propaganda. Yes, the world goes on, stay tuned.

The picture above sure is beautiful, isn’t it? I sent it to my Romanian sweetie to impress her, then discovered later it’s actually a picture of Butchart Gardens in Canada. My wild talent for unimpressing girls could be a topic for a blog itself, but I don’t think I’ll run with it. Tomorrow, giant mysterious “thing” spotted in deep space.

PS: Thanks for all the comments and input in the past.

  2. I love all your history, war and politics posts. Try to keep up with current events because I think people are really interested in politics.

  3. the posts that generate the most comments are always the politically charged current event types, something about opinions being compared to a particular orifice comes to mind.

    Personally my favorites are about interesting happenings (history, science, paranormal) that are not main stream or widely known. For example “the dyatlov pass accident” and the post about the Spanish Armada are two fine examples. those types of posts also hold up much better over time.

  4. Hey, Doug.

    I agree with Josh V. and really enjoy the rare strange info that is hard to find and even harder to back up and analyze, but you have a knack for it.
    Also I personally like space-tech and the real sci-fi tech we now have and nobody talks about-(phase-conjugate mirror holography, holographic memory systems, Sound holography, classified propulsion systems, cutting edge tech stuff like that are my personal favs.)
    For some reason real, patented tech, seems to get mixed in with occultist beliefs, build-it yourself time machines and all that sillyness. Entertaining at times but frustrating when your researching something serious and technical and they start talking about light beings comming down and taking them to Zaxartha to meet Xanthaba or somthing…..Don’t take this the wrong way, but you make a good filter, lol.
    Anyways, whatever your topics may be, I look forward to reading.

    As always,

  5. Hi Doug,

    I had been reading you off an on for three years now.

    I am glad to know that I can help in some way.

    History is the subject that I tend to enjoy most, here, with a perspective that’s current. That said, I enjoyed very much the post on the battle of Kursk which as far as I can think of, is not very relevant in the ongoing wars.

    I also like your political commentary.

    May you not have a starving life, but a decent (i.e. not extravagant either- as I really wish you well) and enjoyable one.
