What the hell is this place?


I'm just a guy. A guy named Nevets. This website (or blog? I dunno) consists of a random collection of things I've either written, drawn, recorded, or am simply interested in at any particular moment. I can't promise to upkeep the place and there's no particular niche to be found. I just wanted a home for various outlets of expression and perhaps the occasional sprinkle of verbal ventilation. That being said, I'm not above tossing in an ad here and there or plugging some of my old clickbaity articles (I'm broke, alright, every penny helps). For the most part, however, I'm just trying to keep myself amused. So... enjoy?
