"Because we do not know when we will die, we get to think of life as an inexhaustible well. And yet everything happens only a certain number of times, and a very small number really.

"How many more times will you remember a certain afternoon of your childhood, an afternoon that is so deeply a part of your being that you cannot conceive of your life without it? Perhaps four, or five times more? Perhaps not even that. How many more times will you watch the full moon rise? Perhaps twenty.

And yet it all seems limitless..."

- Paul Bowles


You buy them books, and what do they do? They eat the paper!


Forget about your seat -- it's the beat.


Television will make you dumb. C'mon and get stupid!


Helo Frend is the blog of Nait Parks, amateur game designer, living room dj, and unpublished writer. Nait lives in Austin, TX with his dog and works in the mobile applications software development industry. Helo Frend is where Nait discusses subjects about which he feels very knowledgeable, and he's heck of good at faking it, but keep in mind that he isn't really qualified to have an opinion about anything much more complicated than the types of cheeses he likes.

But, bless him, he sure tries.

Here you can find a small helping of unpublishable stories, and more are added to that pile as they are deemed unpublishable either by the author himself or by editors of various short fiction markets. A few DJ mixes are also here, if you like electro. The rest is just nerdy nerdblog stuff.

We hope you enjoy it.
