What is This Mess?

WhatIsThisMessThis is a website.


Actually, anyone can buy a domain and install wordpress these days. I am one of the latest of such individuals to purchase a space on the interwebs.

Anyway, to answer the question, “this mess” will serve as the home of most products by one “Thomas Aaron Hellman” (me). Not to be confused with the singer/songwriter dude from Canada. I mean, he speaks French, so it shouldn’t be too hard to distinguish…

Moving on. In April of last year, I began writing a book. It was a sci-fi fantasy book, set on an alien, semi-dystopian planet, and it involved anthropomorphic mammalians (like Todd, up there). Also, there’s robots, hairy savages called “the firstborn,” snobbish, glowing-eyed peoples called “the ascended,” and lizard folk. There’s also an ancient artifact called a “Heavenly Body…” which is close to being the title of the book: Heavenly Bodies.

So the book is more or less finished, but it hasn’t been professionally edited yet. That costs a lot of money. So maybe over the coming months, I will tease more of this Heavenly Bodies book, and eventually-when I have enough money to do so-I will have it properly edited, produced, etc., and release it right here on this website. Hooray!

In the meantime, I have been thinking about writing a blog for a while now. One in which I talk to Todd up there, or insert other images/characters throughout. I would call this blog, “Exercises in Futility.”


No, I’m talking to you! You, and other characters I created… and whose actions I control entirely… Okay, so for the duration of each blog, I’ll be talking to myself. Definitely will have some interesting conversations.

From time to time, I may also post art or music. …That I created. Rather not deal with other people’s copyrighted material.

The future is full of infinite possibilities.
