Joke’s on you, Judge Thompson

So apparently nearly a week has gone past again. Just hasn’t been as much to put up here I suppose. The list this time around is made up of Murphy’s Law and apocalypses, miners and creepy dolls, super heroines and mobiles, lunchbags and posters, telescopes and televisions, professors and horoscopes, amusement parks and passwords, resistance and deletions, fiction and asian women and microbial friends. So jump right in:

Weeeell, it’s a long story

Let’s get this one out before it’s more than week since the previous. Very few categories this time, books, art, news, internet and technology, and of course the obligatory humour and horoscopes. We’ll run through some takes on Disneys business model, various writers rules for writing, privacy and the Big Gs as well as some satire on the subject, a note on why brand name awareness is important, speculation on new phones, an older article on mafioso coders, books in the palm of your hand, their hovercraft is full of eels, how to quit the big Fb, and advice on taking the best selfies from the best of the best.

So, let’s start with Disneys latest anthropomorphic venture:

And finally a little something more serious:

Nah, let’s put it back

This post has been sitting here for a few days waiting to be published. It’s probably about time for that, right?

Old links are old and scattered amongst their aging remains are lots of art links. There are also bits and pieces about 3d printers, brain scanners, bad breakers, bays of pirates, love poems, the spooky dark web, a cover of a hit, some MMO, science that didn’t and does work, hackers going after your toilets, how violence is good for you, conscious decisions, astral futures, strong characters and at least one honeypot that backfired. Jump in:

You have a body, like Adonis

So there’s quite a few technology and internet articles in here and a larger than normal number of links to movie and television stuff. Two doctors make an appearance – Who and Doctor[ow], the seedier side of the interwebs gets a run down, malware detection for mobiles, everyone’s favourite “WW”, VR making people sick, stupid theives, maps that never happened and maps that correlate the unrelatable, Cookie Monster wants it, advice for artists and role players, warehouses and horoscopes, a song of meat and vegies, the original jpg girl, baking companies going ironic, pictures from space, Bitcoins, bunked scientific theories, getting lucky in your underwear, copyright vigilantism, the return of Omni, cutting up time and some tomfoolery from the AVN Expo, last year. Yeah, I know, it’s late.

Hurry up and jump in:

And this shall dwell in the sea

And a whole lot this time around: random celebrities, legal news, science developments, it’s all here; if you can be bothered. Topics include the Zodiac Killer, pollination, podcasts, smartphones, relationship advice, conspiracies, DefCon, old console is best console, pink water, surrealism as a way of living, torrent users, sleep patterns, jihadi web protocols, GPS hacking, philosophy as icons, twenty-five years of crypto, “Ghost Island”, celebrity authors, celebrity lurkers, celebrity movie adaptions, robotic tweets, artificial animal habitations, and Stoya.

And not a single mention of the Big G:
