David Blue

is creating written fiction and columns




per creation


I'm David Blue, and I've written extensively about our relationship with cars ("Hyundai is the New Honda," Speedmonkey) and technology ("The Last iPhone," Extratone) from a perspective that feels tedious or abstract to some, but is generally entertaining, through-and-through. I'm proud of the work I've done so far, which has been wild, absurd, reflective, and hilarious - occasionally all in the same work as I develop my voice.

After publishing a collection of poetry from my adolescence and early adulthood in the Spring of 2016, I launched an online magazine called Extratone in the interest of pursuing and defining new culture and ideas. The project and I have been indistinguishable in the two years since, and I’m extremely proud of what I’ve done with it, but I’ve recently refocused my effort back onto my own voice so that we may both benefit in the future. If you’d like to know more about Extratone, have a go at my Editor’s Letters and visit our Patreon.

Currently, I'm writing my regular column about the ongoing evolution of media and the intersection of technology and culture, while continuing to allocate more of my time to a novel project called Blimp’s Burden which I've been outlining since 2015 about a jaded software engineer who’s new, ridiculously-eccentric boss presents a future which forces him to reckon with his mishandled grief - the creative process of which patrons will be regularly informed of and given opportunities to participate in.
