About me



A very handsome kidHi, I'm matt. I was born in 1985 and I live in Charleston. No, not that one, the other one. I'm a writer, game designer, and videographer. I like democracy, justice, art, and games. I dislike fascism, capitalism, bigotry and bureaucracy. My political alignment is anarchist socialism. I'm gender agnostic, and I'm okay with any pronouns. To pay the bills, I perform services for a number of crisis telephone lines in my area and some surrounding states. I find the work very rewarding, but I wish I could do more to address the root of our world's mental health troubles instead of being the last line of defense against some of the the symptoms. However, I've made a big difference in a few people's lives, and that's something I’m proud of and grateful for. In addition to this blog, I make dumb half-baked jokes on cyberspace, part of the Mastodon federated social network. (it's like Twitter but better.) I play games for the internet and make small games myself. Thank you for reading my website!

About Blue Lander

A very handsome critterBlue Lander is a friend. Best known as the mysterious creature who gives you passwords and sells you items in the excellent game Guardian Legend for the Nintendo Entertainment System, they also appeared in the game Zanac and served as a sort of mascot for the game developer Compile in the 80s. No one knows for sure where the Blue Lander came from or how many there are. They were here long before us, and they'll be here long after we're gone. After narrowly escaping the destruction of NAJU in space year XX88, they went on to offer their wisdom and companionship to starfarers across the galaxy, and also to greet visitors to my website. Thanks, Blue Lander! This is what Blue Lander might look like if they were an anime.

About the site


lander.blue is a personal homepage and blog 100% hand-built with HTML, CSS and PHP. It has a privacy policy (tl;dr: you are 100% anonymous.) It does not contain any javascript, ads, or trackers, and any web apps featured here that use javascript will be clearly labeled as such. It does not use any remote fonts, it uses whatever monospace font is on your computer, so if the text doesn't look good, I recommend installing a good one. The goal of all this is to fight back against an increasingly human-hostile web. I believe a web site should be a document, not a computer program. The modern state of the web is slow, bloated, and inaccessible to people with old computers or with slow, unreliable, or data-capped internet access. A website shouldn't have to download several megabytes of javascript code to function. The web browser shouldn't be a virtual computer running on your computer. A website shouldn't be a black box of trackers and analytics programs harvesting an unknown amount of data about you and sending it to ad conglomerates. Reject javascript and bootstrap, disconnect from the ad industrial complex, help make the web a place for people and not corporations again. top
