The Messengers Of Truth

Posted in Politics, Twitter on 2010/03/13 by Dashiell Barlow

There are people in our world who, regardless of person or reputation-al risk, regardless of  political or religious affiliation, put the lives and rights people as a whole first.


Not people who are this religion,  not people who are that political affiliation, people as a whole. While I try to be of this group of people. I fail a great deal more often than I’d like. I like to call the people who do not fail at this, “Messengers of Truth”.


One was my late Grandmother Dulcie, whose memory I hold in highest esteem because she was one of the people. But another example is @iRevolt. I suggest that everyone — even if you aren’t politically minded — follow her on that Twitter account.


She has opened my eyes to many things, and for that I thank her.


Voice Work!

Posted in Rants on 2010/03/01 by Dashiell Barlow

So it looks like I’m going to be part of a new fan-side movie project, as a voice actor!


I can’t tell you much besides a few things. It will be awesome. It will be horror. I am voicing multiple characters (as it stands right now at least).


More details to come as the project moves forward!

Zionism & Nazism

Posted in Politics, Twitter on 2010/02/27 by Dashiell Barlow

Now, some of you may have major issues with this post, so I will say this right up front. This is an opinion piece. I hold these opinions to be  flat correct. You do not have to, although I hope you will. I will also say I hold nothing against Judaism and it’s practitioners. This post is about Zionism.

Alright, into the blog post!

What is Israel?

Israel would have us believe it is a homeland for the Jewish people. A safe haven from anti-semitism, a nation in it’s own right, constantly under attack by “vicious” arabic neighbors.

But is this the truth?

I say that it is not. Furthermore, I say that even if I stand alone in this opinion  I shall continue it.

I say that Israel is an illegal nation. A nation that encourages apartheid, child murder. A nation that will not tolerate those who disagree. A nation to which the term “war crime” means nothing.

I say that Israel is a Nazi state. The only difference is which ethno-religious group is held to be “pure”. 

Do you not believe me? Go to your Twitter account and follow @iRevolt. She is an incredible source of unfiltered, unbiased information.

In other words, a source of the truth that those who uphold Zionism would like kept from us.

Look up Illah Pappe. Look up Norman Finkelstein. These are names of Jewish people who themselves have seen the truth of what Israel is, and moved to reject  it.

This is no conspiracy theory.

This is reality. 

I can not show you the “right” path here – but I am trying to open a door to a world with less lies forced down your throat unrecognized. Open your eyes to this, I urge you.


Look just a little deeper than the surface and you will find horrors floating just under a veil.

I don’t want to see any more pictures of children killed for no reason other than their ethnicity. Or their religion.

And there’s only one way to stop that.

Never cease looking for the truth, never cease working against the liars.


Lunar Blade Radio

Posted in Music, Projects on 2010/02/27 by Dashiell Barlow

First of all, this is what I am writing about. That link may change — the current site is temporary (and badly designed).

So, this is my current major project. I am DJ Tragic Moon – the Head DJ and founder of Lunar Blade. 

We’re already broadcasting 24/7 – there is a scheduled time where I (usually) do a live show every day. I’m working on getting web hosting,  a radio server, and other essentials to run this station properly. 

In other words, I’m hitting the ground running on this. It’s a hell of a lot of fun, and it’s spectacular that I’ve already got a (n admittedly small) listener base.

If you want to get involved in the project, CONTACT me.  My twitter account, of course, is @DMBarlow, but email is fine, and also quite direct. My main address is dashbarlow[at]gmail[dot]com.


Scheduling & Podcasts

Posted in Projects, Twitter on 2010/02/12 by Dashiell Barlow

I’ve been thinking about scheduling certain posts here.

As things stand, Life & Sanity is a pretty random blog, with posts going up as I feel the need. Would anyone who reads this like to see scheduled posts every week? Does anyone have any reasons why I should (or should not) make that particular change?

Now, the other point is podcasts. I’m very interested in starting up a podcast that would cover all things nerd/techie/etc. But I need people — a podcast by myself is just me talking, a lonely narcissist to your ear. So, if you’re interested in starting one with me, or if you have one, my areas of knowledge match up with a slot you need to fill, get in touch!

In either case — contact me over on Twitter.

Heavy Rain

Posted in Games on 2010/02/12 by Dashiell Barlow

I recently started hearing about a new title coming out for PS3. Evidently Quantic Dream is developing it. David Cage is the big guy other there, and this is one of his projects.

I get the feeling they are running with a tight, small team, and that Mr. Cage is running every project. Their list of games is somewhat short.

The entire game (supposedly) plays like a quicktime event; the control scheme changes wildly by situation. This will be hell on the muscle memory many gamers rely on …. but it’s also quite unique. I think that I may like it.

It reminds me of the Wii, except accomplishing what the Wiimote does without sacrificing an actual controller.

I’m looking forward to playing the full game, I may even hit up the demo. It just sounds fantastic.

Fact/name checks from here. I’m going to break my normal rule here and not reference whoever I found out about this from originally, because I don’t recall. Too many of you other bloggers have covered this!

Heya — Story Requests

Posted in Uncategorized on 2010/02/10 by Dashiell Barlow

Hey everyone!

So, I’ve decided that I am going to do an experiment.

If you have a story idea, you don’t want to or can’t write it for whatever reason, talk to me. I’ll need at least plot and some outline of the characters.

As for request versus commission, well. We’ll come to an agreement. (And on timeframe, as well. I’m only going to do one writing project / time, I think.. but we’ll see).

So, get in touch with me over twitter if you have any interest.
