You have freed me from my lamp

A week long break without a post. Slack. Someone should lose their head for this.

All that aside, within the following list you’ll find a collection of random things including webcomics, both humourous and otherwise, books about smut, Youtube mysteries, AFP and churches, heroines that aren’t drugs, photos from space, Big G’s glass once or twice, authors and singers, light up skin and porn blocking, creeps and 4chan, special babies, Reader and how online privacy is possibly the biggest myth of them all. But first, here’s something about computer games turning into comics?

Is that all you have to say for yourself?

There appears to have been some more interesting things pass through the inbox the last few days. Ranging from: ads that talk to you, Cheerios, secure email, moons and planets, Disney Princesses, famous actors you’ve never heard of, browser extensions, genetic smarts, gambling Google and glasses, internet shenanigans, poop, electronic surveillance, horoscopes, crystal meth, camera phones, stretchy circuitry, nsature walks and objections. But first, smartwatches:

Great stuff is very discouraging.

How to play, book 1 of 12

Quite possibly not much happening to go in here. Lots of political douchebaggery drowning everything else out perhaps?

So to fill this past week out there’s lots of strange things: internet freedom, analysing your own metadata, horoscopes, reading emotional content, smartwatches and dumb companies, secure and private instant messenging, standing up, subtitles are copyrighted, cryptic works are cryptic, Thelonious tells you how, engineering kickstarters, citizen developers, and more. So let’s dive into the Phillipines to get started:

Still not sure if that last is suppose to be satire or even funny yet.

… I have no idea what you are talking about

Another almost on time update with lots of articles to read, and possibly a little short on humour to laugh at – them’s the breaks unfortunately. Somewhere in here though are links to things like fireworks, metadata, nakedness, Schrödinger, the RIAA, shadow profiles, motion trackers [as seen in Aliens], Kevin Costner maybe, cybercrime and punishment, big guns, Quake 3, Houdini covers and mathematical dating.

But first we’ll start with tiny, tiny batteries:
