I backed the Kickstarter

Once again it’s a long slog between. Not too long, but not short enough. Plans are made and plans are discarded. It’s what life does when it interferes in people living.

This post has been plumped somewhat sufficiently to make up for it though: fashion, motor vehicles, video games, animated entertainment, world friendly energy, photography, digital art, gaming hardware, surveillance [like always], cyberpunk, music parodies, 3d printing, astronomy, astrology, girls of the female persuasion, robotics, life advice, and more I’m sure I’ve not covered in that brief run down. There’s not as much humour, but enjoy it anyway:

And one final one because this is how all proper-thinking people feel about it:

Haha, no, but I can take a picture of you

Bit late this time around perhaps, though as penance there is a lot here. Plenty to read and laugh at and so on. A wide selection of topics ranges from the Big Bang [not the television show] to Popes, Irishmen to famous authors, life after death to life before death [or horoscopes], game consoles to new games, remote controls to digital invisibility, virtual reality to augemented reality, hotels to theft, hearing to instant messaging. So jump in and enjoy:

And just something on keeping secrets:

Ma’am, every villain is special to us

There’s quite a bit in here this time around; see last post for the reasons and a comparison; not nearly so far behind as before. All things considered, this is a good thing. Jumping in here thought gives us plenty to look at. From visualising data to more on driveless cars, plenty of good music to plenty of strange but oddly appealing music to free as in beer music, celebrity meatloaf [a la the 'Antiviral' movie] to celebrity awards, quite a bit on the security of your data and what you do with it, tons on the StarCraft competitive gaming leagues, more awesome photos from space to a trailer for the movie everyone is waiting for, law enforcement getting in on the tech advances, some creepypasta to some creepy fish, board games and old games, the privacy of the internet and anatomy all collected, bitcoins for dummies to home gestures, sounds from the history of technology to hacking current technology. First up though, we ask, and answer the age old question:

And apologies for a link to MySpace there at the end. We were unaware it was even still relevant, let alone a blog platform. Weird.

The little monster was very hungry, Chrp!

Apparently Diablo 3 is a going concern again, and it’s biting into the time usually spent on readings things on the internet. So this will be a bit of a less technical post. Lots more laughs hopefully; maybe. If you like the same things anyway.

Diving in we get trains and authors, highways and chemicals, spaceships and diaspora, horoscopes and more horoscopes, superheroines and towers, elder siblings and opinions, automated cars and beach sculpture, anonymous mobiles and artificial psyches, bitcoins and app stores. Up first though, is some art based on time and dimensions in space:

It’s an underwater level

It has been a good week for reading; so much that was actually interesting and so little kerfuffle about previously noisy and annoying things. Not that any of them are more important or unimportant compared to the others; rather that it has been a nice change of pace for it all.

Anywa, we have things here about the Olympics [I can still use that word, right?], lots and lots and lots of 3d printing, cinema awards, gemstones, mobile gaming, software updates, weather, subway station remodelling, music and mashups, vehicles, the alphabet [sort of], uplifting things and depressing things, prehistoria unveiled, magicians and murder, webcomics and the rise of civilisations. Dive in, eat up and laugh loudly:
