This is the closest that unshaven smelly men can get

And another week comes and goes. And 2014 keeps on moving without waiting for anyone to catch up.

Anywa, highlights for this week include what the Xbox One is going to do to your family home, manuscripts that have never been translated, a possibly true fairytale about the internet and the male gaze, Amanda Palmer answering your questions about everything, and the first episode of hitREcord. Filler includes things like the angry NSA, the scale of the universe, your new Google SmartHome™, looking at how things now looked back then, rubber band guns, movies repeated back at you Twitter style, the NSA has good points, American cheerleaders playing with cameras, upcoming games for 2014, breaking the NSA, why the ancients couldn’t see green, net neutrality dies aged twenty, comics and horoscopes.

Once again, time as eluded us here. Leaving us behind. It’s likely it should just be set to a simple once a week or so schedule, even if there’s the desire to be more regular than that.

Alan Moore, neon fish, electrodes in the brain, horoscopes, and Star Wars are all in here this week. To go with them we have the highest definition televisions, creepypasta, Star Trek, flash smartwatches, trolling on the Xbox, NASA photography, walking on water [or at least at sometime-fluid], dragons and scientists, hallucinogenic games, and the usual humour. So eat up:

Do you like donuts?

Well, that’s enough of a break. Time for the New Year and recovering from the celebrations. There’s been a lot of nothing for a while, probably because of that celebratory period, but things are beginning to flood back in again.

Leading the list of items two weeks old or less today is virtual reality, closely followed by creepypasta. Also included for your pleasure are things like webcomics[!], country music, life reflections, shoes, facts, glitter nail polish, outer space, coffee flavoured beer, images of earth, genuine fakes, women’s rowing, broken things, wierd passwords, Orwell and facial recognition and, of course, the obligatory stuff about Christmas and stuff about New Year’s.
