"Informationalist & Gonzo Alt-Media Proprietor"

Snow day: January 10, 2021 in Austin, Texas

video playlist ordered from last to first … most snowfall to least snowfall.

As recently mentioned over on my personal blog (SMiles Lewis dot com – August 2020), I’ve been trying to resume posting to my various websites. This site is an amalgamation of the remains of an old project with some friends called AnomalyTv.com which became AnomalyTelevision.com …

The video below I came across back in June 2020. I’ve been a fan of Donald Glover’s since becoming aware of him through his role in the 2009 flick, Mystery Team, and his stand-up comedy show, WEIRDO. Until the release of his This is America video in 2018, I was totally unaware of his musical career as Childish Gambino.

My web presence has varied quite a bit over the past 20+ years of “my-life-on-the-internet.” I first got a digital online version of my brief alt-media print zine setup around 1998 – shortly thereafter setting it up as my first ever domain name: www.ELFIS.net

Soon I was buying more and more domain names for more and more projects, turning the Elfis zine website into a network hub for weird alt-media websites. I think at the height of my web-work I had maybe 70 or more domain names that were all interconnected and would re-syndicate each-others content using early XML and RSS feeds.

With the ever worsening trollish hack-attacks on vulnerable websites, coupled with the rise of social media sites draining away the content that used to be based at people’s personal websites, I’ve increasingly pulled back (after each hack) from the scope of such interconnected website activities. I’ve gotten sucked in to the big social media sites like most people… and I’ve lamented that drain’s diminishing of my efforts at curating my own websites.

As much time as I’ve thought I might have to spend rekindling that effort (during these Strange Days of Covid-Lockdowns), life pulls me back from making any progress. Its a slow process anyway, so I should just embrace the small steps that help make larger strides possible.

To that end… for several months now I’ve been planning on using my own nostalgic archival backup work on my personal files as the potential driver to get back to it! Back in late June I created a TON of draft posts of things I was coming across and wanted to share… but here it is mid-August and I’ve still not posted any of those drafts.

So, may this signal my effort to renew these efforts.

Keep-Austin-Beautiful-Day 2019

This past April we participated in KAB’s Annual Volunteer Day

Saturday, April 13th, 2019 / 1-2:30pm

My wife and I had wonderful time exploring and cleaning the Blunn Creek Nature Preserve. The weather cleared up and the temperature was just right to explore and clean various parts throughout this fantastic little park (that’s bigger than we realized).

Thankfully, the park really had very little trash to clean-up. Most of the trash and recyclables we collected were found in and along the creek; most of it freshly deposited from the recent rains; weather which delayed the initially scheduled cleanup time but whose sudden switcheroo gave us excellent cool temps – both down in the tropical feeling shaded creek and up to the sun exposed and blue-sky drenched north-eastern-most heights where you could look back across the preserve and see the beautiful castle-like St. Edwards University building on the horizon where green met blue with its white and orange palette.

This was an incredibly satisfying experience spent with my wife and nature.
