About Mountain Time

Mountain Time is like God and the Devil. I mean, it’s everything. It’s the trees, it’s the ground, it’s the rocks, it’s the moon… it’s everything. If God and the Devil were playing football, Mountain Time would be the stadium that they played on. It would be the sun that shone down on them.

Mountain Time is also an exceedingly longform story unfolding terrifically slowly across numerous worlds, times, planes of existence, dimensions, states of being, and other nouns. Please be patient.

About the Author

My name is Chris Combs. I live in Portland, OR, and believe that man rejects the world as it is without accepting the necessity of escaping it. My favorite color is green.

Joshua Abraham Norton lived in San Francisco, where he lost his fortune in a bad rice deal in the 1850s. In 1859, he declared himself Emperor of the United States and Protector of Mexico, which is pretty much the only reasonable reaction to losing your fortune in a bad rice deal.

Ed Gein was a killer and grave robber who liked to fashion human remains into housewares. It turns out this is a good way to get movies made about you.


About Triple Antibiotic Ointment

Despite what the commercials tell you, the jury’s still out on whether triple antibiotic ointment is any more effective than regular petroleum jelly at preventing infection and/or healing wounds faster. What’s more, triple antibiotic ointment can cause contact dermatitis and contribute to antibiotic resistance.
