: the Disclaimer

I am going to be honest. I am going to speak/write/create without reservation from-- or apology for-- what I know and who I am. That is the best disclaimer I can offer.

The content of this site may be considered graphic and mature. If you are not an adult, you are not my responsibility-- do what you want. If you are an adult, then you are your own responsibility. And I don't want children, so take care of your own.

If you are offended by anything you find, do not close your mind to it (and don't dare bitch to me). Take what you can and go on.

Images made with Adobe Photoshop 7, and Jasc Paint Shop Pro 7. HTML hand-coded in notepad. Coding for the play "Basement Apartment" was done in a snap using Microsoft Frontpage, and is the only instance in which an HTML editor was used. I despise a floggin' HTML editor.

All writing, photography, and other contents within the site are properties of CM Henschel or astraea Rae. You cannot take, manipulate, or in any way reproduce the contents of this site without permission from the author(s). That would be illegal and a pain in my ass and a good way to get in some shit. Don't do it. I stress this only because it's been done before.

I must also acknowledge the influences of my fellow hostees, of various writers, of friends, of Nanny G., of my Pentax 35mm camera, and Canon Canoscan.

And thank you all. Have fun.
