Chaos is an integral part of our existence. Rather than fight against it, at The Chaos Factory, we embrace it. It may not be easy to discern the patterns, but Chaos is not random. We explore our various interests as content creators, whether it’s writing, photography, film, or the environment, and combine them in a process we call entropy squared. These are the results.
My name is Decater Orlando Collins. I’m an author, photographer, creative type who, like many of you I’m sure, has a hard time concentrating on one thing at a time. It’s taken me many years of failed projects and half-done manuscripts to get to the point where I can finish something without first getting distracted by 3 (or 17) other things. This is where The Chaos Factory comes in.
It’s the blog for my content creation platform, Entropy2. It’s where I spit out many of my creative urges, rant about Peter Jackson, and get all Aristotle on what passes for entertainment today. You never know what you might find here, but there’s a definite tendency to focus on writing techniques, storytelling, and my fetish for cheesy sitcoms from the 80’s and 90’s.
