(pronounced Bee Ess Tee See Arrrrgh)
...formed initially in the summer of 2009, this heretofore unnamed vessel
comprises a core trio of Ben Bennett, Ryan Jewell and Wilson Shook, as
well as any foolhardy stowaway who happen to seek passage under these
ragged sails.

whether careening through uncharted seas or reposing under familiar stars,
bst.cr follow a map of their own creation, where X marks not a terminus of
promised riches, but a signpost along the way of perpetual becoming.
fellow travelers are advised to set aside their customary defenses and
take up the banner of an alternate experience.
