This creature dies too easily.

Back once more with lots of look over — with apparently most of it technology related. Lots of futurific things to think about and look forward to.

Along with the usual humour and horoscopes, this post is filled up with Bioshock fish, the most expensive video games around, ancient erotica, Powerpuff more-than-Girls, the oddest cover ever, psycho jeans, Hearthstone, smart wear coming soon, Writer’s Block, net neutrality, sea cows, prescient selling, virtual bodies, technological sheep, Orwell reaching out from the ether, fake online identities, shoes that track you, fake metro signs, micro computers, fake spiders, issues with fandom and finishing up with asteroids. First though, dive into glass related shenanigans:

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. But first, chow down on some grammar nazis:

Do you think our love will go on once the summer ends?

Well, there’s been a lot read and a lot discarded over the past week. And a lot has been linked below. Perhaps a little excessive, most likely just excited.

So, let’s dig into everything from monkeys to spiders, from satellites to automatons, from doctors to bus drivers, from videos to headphones, from plants to skeletons, from donuts to clean water, from videogames to obsolete computers, from Alzheimers to neuroscience, from criminals to references, from crabs to talking plants, from holograms to algorithms, and finishing off with somebody’s take on how we see Christmas:

And something specifically about a day not far from now:

I get it. It’s for a quest.

So, let’s get this going then; it’s late and it’s full. Heaps in here, just check the tags — underwear, horoscopes, laughs, music history, lots of art and photography, silly tech, maths and algorithms, the NSA, Richard Stallman, money, solar power and molten sand, etc. Lots of stuff to enjoy.

So dig in and fill up:

And because this has been delayed, here’s the most recent horoscopes from your favourite fortune tellers:

The players are you, and the capitalist fat cat

Once again, the date this was supposed to be posted has passed; the days slip away as we draw into a beautiful, and hot, Summer.

Lots of things happened over the weekend, Doctor Who being one of the biggest in some places and circles. Anywa, into it today with all sorts of things: time pieces that don’t tell the time, ways to escape working, surveillance in the city, cities on water, the rise of artificial intelligence, autonomous robots with guns, phones [and] sex, tiny computers, virtual money, and the Addams Family!
