This blog (zentastic.com) is my (Shannon Larratt) generally personal blog where I ramble about whatever I feel like that day. Much of it was imported from my original blog which was hosted at iam.bmezine.com (“glider”, although I’ve since been deleted and banned from that site by the new staff for some unknown reason).
I’m a programmer, writer, and artist that you probably know best because of BME, the body modification website I ran from 1994 until mid-2008 (where I also maintained a body modification blog called MODBLOG and managed a a cool body modification wiki/encyclopedia — again, both of which I’ve now been banned from, even though the vast majority of the content was created by me). You may also be here because of Uvatiarru, a movie I’m currently producing, or possibly from the military photo site I maintain, UnderMars. Or maybe it’s because of my kit car and homebuilt vehicle site? Perhaps it’s due to peanuts that look like ducks? Maybe you want a sportscar for the snow?
You may also know me as the designer of the first Internet Casino (featured in WIRED, etc), the technical creator of the VoiceBBS software, a revolutionary and influential telephony system, and co-creator of the concept. If you’re very old, you may also know my work with SciFAX, a compute-fax interface that predates the popularity faxboards and could be argued to be their precursor. Early on in my programming career I also wrote the first published VGA video game, as well as creating one of the few trojans capable of destroying computer hardware (by creating a feedback loop in sound cards).
I do lots of stuff… If you’d like to reach me you can do so at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can also visit my girlfriend Caitlin.
Here are some pictures from the last half decade or so.
