The inevitable mechanics of SevenevesAlabaster Crippensseveneves-coverseveneves-inside-cover

Thu, 15 Sep 2016 22:04:07 +0000

I don’t know if I’ve done a book review since school. So I’m not about to start now. But I read a book, and it did a lot of things to my brain. A lot of making me think. A lot of wondering. And a surprising amount to my gut too. So it’s worth talking … Continue reading The inevitable mechanics of Seveneves

Cardboard Carpenter – City of RemnantsAlabaster CrippensPose as a Team, because tomorrow, we die.

Mon, 16 Sep 2013 15:21:04 +0000

It wasn’t the most dramatic or interesting moment of the game, but it was arresting. A gang of hulking, violent heavies breaks into a stronghold held by a police patrol, directly in the centre of the city. A few cards on the table and a roll of the die. The right cards meant it was … Continue reading Cardboard Carpenter – City of Remnants

This is Cardboard – Plastic Pieces and Cardboard WorldsAlabaster CrippensCardboard Worlds

Sat, 10 Aug 2013 10:01:17 +0000

A few nights ago, a friend almost had a panic attack because she couldn’t work out if she could trust her husband. A few years ago, I played a game about undercover robots with a group of people who had recently discovered an old friend had been an undercover cop. A few decades ago, I … Continue reading This is Cardboard – Plastic Pieces and Cardboard Worlds

Writing Praxis – From Passion to PracticeAlabaster Crippensalex_zpsa8d94fa1

Wed, 05 Jun 2013 18:09:14 +0000

It’s my birthday, so I’ve given myself permission to write something self obsessed to try and dig myself out of a frustrating hole. I think of myself as a writer. I spent two years tricking myself into actually being one through the creative practice/experiment/collaboration of awesome that was Unstruck. By working with other people and … Continue reading Writing Praxis – From Passion to Practice

Without you my live would be boring – The Knife, Pan’s People and pushing buttonsAlabaster CrippensImage

Wed, 05 Jun 2013 16:41:21 +0000

I wonder if the Knife aren’t happy with being famous any more. Heartbeats and Silent Shout burst onto a wider scene than they felt they were right for, and now they’re trying to turn off as much of their mainstream appeal as possible. People are calling the record pretentious nonsense, and they’re putting on live … Continue reading Without you my live would be boring – The Knife, Pan’s People and pushing buttons

Spot the difference – Solidarity, Intersectionality, Empathy, Compassion, LoveAlabaster CrippensSharingEar View

Sun, 13 Jan 2013 23:01:34 +0000

This is in response to a lot of things that I don’t think I’m going to address directly. If you’ve been following the people I follow on twitter this weekend, you know what it’s about. There’s been some awesome responses, particularly here, and shockingly, three years ago, here. The thing is, we’re all so very … Continue reading Spot the difference – Solidarity, Intersectionality, Empathy, Compassion, Love

Mounting Darkness and Creative Destruction on the Dark Mountain – Uncivilisation 2012Alabaster CrippensUncertain GroundFrangible

Sun, 13 Jan 2013 11:45:57 +0000

To civilise is to build. To uncivilise is to destroy? I may just be tired, but I actually feel very lost. Last year’s Dark Mountain Uncivilisation Festival made me grounded and full hearted, my mind swirling with ideas. This year, the thoughts are still torrential, but my physical form feels adrift. It’s a scary place … Continue reading Mounting Darkness and Creative Destruction on the Dark Mountain – Uncivilisation 2012

The Unbearable Darkness of Mountains – Uncivilisation 2011Alabaster CrippensPhoto035Photo039Photo027Photo040

Mon, 22 Aug 2011 20:03:30 +0000

Last night, as the sun set, I wandered into the woods. Dosed up with Valerian and on barely any sleep (third hangover of the year, too soon after the second) I was already hazy, and I became totally and utterly conscious of how terrible my eyes were. In the dark of the evening, as everything … Continue reading The Unbearable Darkness of Mountains – Uncivilisation 2011

Unstruck at 200 – With bits inAlabaster Crippensunstruck.machine.web

Wed, 12 Jan 2011 20:37:09 +0000

Illustration by Adam. Today I posted my 200th post on the Unstruck blog. It’s not quite the 200 x 500=100,000 words that that should be, as there are five odd posts without any text at all (and the 500 is a limit, many are dead on, but some are under). Anyway, for those who don’t … Continue reading Unstruck at 200 – With bits in

Freizeit- The Kindness of StrangersAlabaster CrippensOn the road again

Sat, 05 Jun 2010 12:44:41 +0000

It’s a little weird. Hard to get used to how far you can get on the kindness of strangers, with only the tiniest bit of language ability. It’s also terrifying. I have been weirdly isolated at times, but it’s pretty much all in my mind. Currently the biggest problem is that this keyboard has a … Continue reading Freizeit- The Kindness of Strangers
