about

We didn't need it, but somehow, some way, they managed to convince us that we did. In retrospect, it's easy to see why - we'd become so accustomed to the recent trend of claiming previously unvisited planets as our own that when the remaining ostensible manned space missions dried up, we were left with nothing else with which we could satisfy our bumbling pride. So, they saw it fit that if we could not venture outward, that we would venture inward.

I speak, of course, of their machine. It is a steel leviathan to which no comparison can be drawn, dwarfing even the most profound man-made structures. When it is activated, it will bore a massive hole into the earth, by far larger and deeper than any other ever attempted, breaking the thin veneer of the world we know as our own and revealing another. On this scale, it was previously thought impossible. But, then again, so were a lot of things.

I'm told that they will send down a team to investigate. I can only hope that they aren't making a mistake.

about

Petriform

From San Jose, CA, Petriform drinks too many energy drinks and distills the resulting power into alternatingly high-and-low- energy electronic jams, lighting up shows around California and beyond by mixing and matching shades of NES chiptunes, pop punk, drum & bass, synthpop, and happy hardcore. ... more

Track Name: Intercontinental Drift
sharp corner enters my vision
bottom of the incline
this time I make no provisions
yeah it'll be just fine

I don't know quite what compels me
to take a dead man's drive
I'll finish this if it kills me
for now I'm alive

and I know
this is it
no better time to be swift
this is my
perfect fit
I'm off to scale the rift

yes I know
this is it
won't let the momentum shift
this is my
perfect fit
intercontinental drift

think fast avoid the collision
deliver shocks to spines
I navigate with precision
and you get left behind

of many things I am guilty
but not of taking dives
yes, to me failure is filthy
I live but to strive
