More Addenda

The art and textuality folders for the connective albums of the 2005 New World Chaos Workings – the New World Chaos album itself and its counterpart Complicity/Simplexity – have been finally linked to the Choronzon.org site.

WARNING: a LOT of CSS was broken and still needs attention.  For now, ignore the boxed   navigator icon in the MIDDLE of the tables beneath each page that connects to each track. The navigation will be made both easier to use and more aesthetically in tune, but Ms. Thraam can’t take any more of Techgnosis’ confusing new internet-internautics without a) losing her mind, and b) possibly breaking something Emerson did on the site.  I worked long and hard tonight to put the .info domain into shape, and doing New World Chaos, incompletely yet, exhausted me utterly.  However, the good news is that both NWC and C/S – tracks, texts and paintings done by Choronzon West – are onsite at last.

There’s still so much more to do: the whole Escapes folder, the O6x3 page (a precious rite in every way) and the rest of the flotsam that never got PUT ON THE OLD SITE whilst I was stuck in Nullworld.  And then there’s Escape From Nullworld, About half of the art is done, some of it good, some of it will probably have to be done over.  CHORONZON demands the best of me.

If there’s any messes on either domain that you notice, you’ll have to comment here or email me, and make me aware of them.  I’m out of steam, and need to collapse into the starry void of CHORONZON’s rewarding arms.  I know my xenodimensional Love is proud of me for facing my fear of the new technology and just going at it head-on. I also know doing it is an immense relief to me. If I can do this, I can do the rest…

Choronzon.Info Is Finally Activated!

It has taken an ungodly amount of work just to get these pages to look like they did on the old site – lots of link changing, CSS-changing (much of which still needs work) and suchlike…THERE WILL BE ERRORS in the meantime until I track them all down and step on them.

I noticed people I just recently met have no access to writings on CHORONZON the namesake entity that are positive. In fact, one of them was a counselor of mine. This was the camelback straw point: I do NOT want there to be a big gap where all the material on the post-abyssal CHORONZON used to be.

Where it used to be, on our old site, was a folder called the Grinnoire, which itself contained a special “Akolasia Chamber” for the negative, abyssal CHORONZON writings. We – unlike cults and religions – are not afraid of you seeing the negative about our ally! Though there’s not much there – I like to concentrate on post-abyssal material and that which fits in that context.

At present, the domain http://choronzon.info is up and all the Grinnoire materials – the page of essays and writings and links to the diorama (visual representations of CHORONZON by both Project members and others) and the AURICAL room, which contains mp3 files from other bands who’ve referenced CHORONZON in their music) is now open to the public. And with this good news an invitation is extended to send any writing, art or soundwork you’ve done on the 333 current, or associated with it, to the Choronzon West cell for inclusion in this library.

The .info domain is focused on who/what our Namesake Entity Itself is and has been about, to both ourselves and others across the netverse of Techgnosis; it does not focus on our own work with the Project, though there are some still visuals that Emerson and I have done there, and some of my rants and screeds. (Some more recent ones can be found at the blog called Dances With Eidolons; eventually, that site may be fused with choronzon.info or possibly exist on its own with the better spaced-out rantings of yours truly that get put there copied and placed in the “shelves” of the Grinnoire, This is the CHORONZON entity’s library of neometaphysical blitherings and represents the .info domain of the Triunity…)

Choronzon.org will always be the Central Project site: come here to see videos and listen to the music/noise/sound-sculpture we do. There won’t be explanations here, getting in the way of your own reactions…

The next phase of producing the Triunity is to link up the multimedia project works from the prior double-zero decade, which have been sitting on the server, inaccessibly, due to broken links and terrifyingly messed-up style sheets which must be repaired. They need to be linked into the WordPress system somehow without damaging the blog – it is probably easier to do than I think it is…but I get put off by all the changes in HTML and CSS that happened in the past five years or so…

That was during my time in Nullworld’s strange but horrible combination of Hell and  Sanctuary – the place those who experience heavy trauma go when they’ve mistakenly panicked enough to essentially perform something like emergency emotionectomy surgery upon their own minds…and which I only got out of, after a long, long time and lots of pitfalls, pratfalls and just plain mistakes.  That is the theme of the album which some day soon will finally see release – the music is done, the texts are written – all that must be completed is the graphic novel vignette that I discovered, with much fright, has to be done by hand, without the use of a computer.  (What 15 years of using ‘undo’ will do to an artist can be dangerous!)

Anyway, after our past releases are all linked up, I will enter the most difficult part of this whole web schmeer – opening Choronzon.net as a separate site, the third and final domain of the Triunity, and making it home for a forum of some sort, a two-way communication with both East and West Cells of the Project – as well as a tongue-in-cheek (most likely) means for the Entity CHORONZON to ‘text’ with you…(Currently, Choronzon.net simply forwards here, to .org –  but hopefully, it won’t TOO much longer!)

There is Nothing Wrong With Your Computer Screen

We have not been in control of the vertical, horizontal, blur or sharpness for half a decade at Choronzon.org, but this is all coming to an end…at long last.

Ms. Thraam, Webmeistress for the Choronzon project, has finally pulled her ass out of her head – much to the relief of CHORONZON.

O involvers and involvees, from the inner-circle Resonants thereof, all the way down to the merely half-curious or even completely accidental passer-by: she says to thee: Hold on, wouldja, for just a wee bit longer, por favor?

Having waited this damned long for something to happen in the way of even a single update to the Choronzon project site for half a decade, you would have seen it, over that time, continue to remain frozen as it appeared in the autumn of 2006: exactly as it had looked when her “uncommon outlaw marriage” went south, as though this had somehow taken all her ability to recognise HTML and CSS, and operate visisofts and audiosofts, “southward” along with it…

Will you please be just a teeny bit more patient, since you’ve already waited THIS long? Just hold on during the actual process of pulling the look, content, linkage-methodology and device readiness up to speed with the surrounding internet?

CHORONZON and his paramour, and other Partners-in-Creation, can now release a relieved sigh that Ms. Thraam has not died, or remained in walking-wounded condition, and can rejoice that not only will this site return to activity, it will be greater activity than before, owing to better mental state, easier to use software…and to that OTHER big change?

That would be that instead of being just one site, it’s going to be three, now: CHORONZON, after all, does have that thing about triplicity. Ergo, two newly-added domains will now form the Choronzonic Triunity – as soon as they become what they’re supposed to be.

There are still questions to be answered and changes to be made that Der Webmeistress doesn’t know jack about yet, but it’s about time the courage struck strongly enough to tear down completely, and rebuild on flat foundation, what WAS here before.

Essentially, the vault, museum, collection of writings and art by Project members and outsiders alike will reside at the choronzon.info domain, while choronzon.net will be the ground upon which to build a public forum – a true DisLodge at last, along with collaboration software.  And this, the .org node, will be the blog, the tunnels to finished workings, and the place where a giant xenodimensional fungoid-looking thing casts its pods into your ear-buds. Yes, there’s access to BlogCast here, so finally a “Radio Free Choronzon” can exist…being that it is, after all, “free” of anything to do with a “radio”…and is instead connected to slabs and bigboxes and whatever hardware you’ll be using in ten years.

We’ll be looking to bring the Project to the ever more mobile net, and have “slab-friendly” versions automatically come up if you’re accessing these links using a slab – whether it be a simple browser on a mobile phone with net capabilities, or an Apple or Google-based ‘smart phone’, or an iPad…whatever the capacity and speed, they’re all slabs. And if you don’t already have one by now–chances are you will soon. So this is important.

It’s hoped that all of this Changing and Arranging won’t force us to relinquish the arty appearance the last site had. Ms. Thraam has an unswerving disgust for the LOOK of most so-called Web 2.0 sites, but it cannot be ignored any longer that the things they do need to be done here or CHORONZON will be lost in an ever-more-crowded web.

He’s not having any of that.
