Dead Horizon



A six shooter is all you have in a world of sand, dust, and blood...
Dead Horizon is a short and dirty point and click adventure game for your home computer system. Play as Bonnie Starr, a former farmgirl turned infamous pistoleer as she attempts to gain redemption at the end of a gun.
Dead Horizon is inspired by the light gun games of old. No, not Area 51, Time Crisis or Virtua Cop. The real old ones, like the original Wild Gunmen, Namco Quick & Crash, and Mad Dog McCree. This game was inspired by those and the developer's own fascination with westerns and their machismo focused story lines on masculinity, murder, and guns. This game has all those things, and more! And it's 100% free! And very, very short.
Features Include:
  • Gameplay only involves the mouse. We've cut out those useless fidgety bits, like keyboards!
  • Out of date graphics, like you remember from that childhood before you were born!
  • Out of date soundtrack, so fabulous you'll want to own it separately!
  • Quickdraw duels with over five dangerous hombres!
  • Classic 4:3 aspect ratio, just for those that missed it!
  • Kill some people that probably deserve it!
  • Learn from the best shootist this side of the sunken desert!
  • Kill some people that maybe don't deserve it!
  • Getting to know whether or not you'd miss!
  • The game is totally free! So free we're not even charging for it!
The hard sell:
Dead Horizon takes less than ten minutes to play, but a lot of sweat and a LOT of tears went into making Dead Horizon. If you take the time to experience the game, trust us when we say it is appreciated.
This game is dedicated to the memory of my grandfather, who had the spirit of a gunslinger.

The Dangerous History Podcast Ep. 0140: Thoughts on Cyclical History & Generations


Ep. 0140: Thoughts on Cyclical History & Generations

If you read widely enough in history, sooner or later you start to think there are some clearly repeating themes and problems and trends, and that there are pendulums in society that swing back and forth every few generations. You might get the sense that history might be more about cycles than about continuous progression in a straight line. Is there anything to this impression? Today we explore the concept of cyclical history and what role different generations might play in such a cycle through the lens of Strauss-Howe generational theory.
Join CJ as he discusses:
  • Ancient conceptions of cyclical time
  • The concept of linear time
  • Some modern conceptions of cyclical time
  • The generational theory of William Strauss & Neil Howe, authors of (among other things) the famous book The Fourth Turning: An American Prophecy
  • What the Strauss-Howe theory says about recent American history as well as about its present & future
  • CJ’s thoughts on Strauss & Howe’s theory

A Constructive Look At TempleOS

TempleOS is somewhat of a legend in the operating system community. Its sole author, Terry A. Davis, has spent the past 12 years attempting to create a new operating from scratch. Terry explains that God has instructed him to construct a temple, a 640x480 covenant of perfection. Unfortunately Terry also suffers from schizophrenia, and has a tendency to appear on various programming forums with a burst of strange, paranoid, and often racist comments. He is frequently banned from most forums.

ClandesTime 111 – The Manchester Bombing and the Politics of Fear

The bombing in Manchester this week was an especially horrific act of terrorism. 22 people were killed and dozens more were injured – many of whom were children or teenagers who were exiting an Ariana Grande concert. This week I examine some of the questions I have about this bombing, and outline a lot of relevant context that has so far been ignored by virtually all media coverage of the event. I explain why the default alternative view of terrorist attacks in the West – that they are in some way ‘blowback’ resulting from NATO foreign policy – is at best a misleading simplification.  I round off by criticising Jeremy Corbyn’s latest speech for appearing to offer an alternative to the War on Terror while repeating the same prejudices and assumptions that underpin it.

Lilla - Te nekem nem hiszel én neked (synth pop, Hungary 1989)

On of the best female singers from Hungary during the 80's. This dramatic synth-track is taken from her first solo LP. She was the front singer of the electro-new wave group Napoleon Boulevard.

Твой День - Богиня Любви (italo disco, Russia 1992)

Heavy italo disco from the very first year after Soviet collapse in early 90's. Sounds at least 7 years after it's time, but better late than never! The Russians are the ones who best manage the remains of the western 80's italo trend, and this is a good example of that. Actually there are still today loads of amazing italo disco produced in Russia.
