Many is the band that wishes they could have a second chance at what turned out to be their final performance—maybe they could have brought more energy to that night, or savored it just a little more... and then there’s the terrible but unforgettable case of the celebrated rock group Waters Blue and Permanent (2003-2022).

The eternal curse of successful artists: they forget that they too are flesh sacks for excrement and bile. Especially those not quite on the cusp of infirmity, who for all their pretensions to wisdom and authenticity of identity, will nevertheless never have the grace to die well.
just wow! the new story is fantastic!
Nothing online I look forward to more than a fresh Knifepoint. Spellbinding.
New Knifepoint episode?! I'm gonna smoke a bunch of grass, turn out all the lights, and cuddle with my dog while i listen to Soren and feel gratitude for both his excellent work, and for these moments of escape and pleasure he gave me for free.
