About “Life in This World”

This is the personal weblog of Carl M. Johnson, a web developer and would-be philosopher. The weblog contains links to whatever interests the author today, mostly videogames, comics, news, and philosophy plus photos taken with my 3DS. See also, the Best Of Life in This World. Contact the author by leaving a comment or emailing carl at this domain.

The title of the weblog is taken from the following poem by Kobayashi Issa:

世の中は
地獄の上の
花見かな

Yo no naka wa
Jigoku no ue no
Hanami kana

Life in this world
Is a spring picnic
Perched atop the hellmouth.
