  • Who is us?

    Sean Daily is an English major from New Jersey now living in Las Vegas, the Other City of Lights. "I consider 'Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas' to be comfort reading, I like the al pastor tacos at Tacos Mexico and I count among my literary influences the Chainsaw from 'Doom'. 'RRRRRR! You don't like that, do you, Mr. Undead Marine! RRRRRR!'"

    Shanoah Alkire is our Discordian at large. "Born in Santa Cruz, I grew up in Grass Valley and the Bay Area, and now lurk in Las Vegas. My literary influences include Ray Bradbury, Lewis Carroll, and Douglas Adams. I also program as a hobby, and currently maintain the Gtk port of Angband. You can find a rather old bio of me here."

Sean Daily is, like he said on the home page, an English major and former newspaper reporter and help desk galley slave who lives in Las Vegas and, quite frankly, hates every minute of it. Not enough green – he’s a Joisey boy. You can contact him at gavortnik [at] Please do not send him spam, as he will delete it while reciting the chilling demise of the little human-headed fly from the 1958 movie The Fly: “Help meeeeee! Help meeeeeeeeee! No! Aaaaaagh!” But with more death rattling and sounds of bones cracking.

Shanoah Alkire is Sean’s friend, and that’s all this biography is comfortable saying about that, as it’s being written by Sean.

Well, Sean, I think we can give them a bit more information then that. I was born in Santa Cruz, but never really lived there for long. I spent a good deal of time living in the foothills in California, and the Bay Area before moving to Las Vegas. I’m currently working as a help desk galley slave, with rather odd hours.

My parents are divorced, and both had rather liberal or new age ideas about religion, and I was told I could be whatever religion I wanted. I eventually settled on Discordian, partially simply because it is a lot of fun. In another era, I’d likely have been a vegetarian hippy peacenik, and there is still a certain element of that in my personality.

I can be reached at shanoah [at} silenceisdefeat [dot]com, (to the surprise of anyone else who knows me, as this is the only place I’ve used this e-mail) under the same conditions as Sean. Oh, and I tend to overuse ellipses a lot…
