Internet says you should like it

Well, it’s been a week already somehow; time flies when you’re sitting there doing the same thing.

You will find lots of things in here today, from movies about girls to movie stars, mimicry to parody, photography to surveillance, prototyping and foreshadowing, flying machines and music videos. It’s all going on. But first, let’s look at the names of computer games, jump in:

And a quick final Valentine’s Day message for everyone:

I have my handcoats and the spacelight is warm.

This one will likely look a little different – full of videos and other random things that have been left out or left behind until now. A complete mess of things really. Somewhere, amongst all of this garbage, should be something to get everyone’s taste. Unless you’re a five year-old from Guatemala with no internet, then you might have some trouble finding something interesting.

Starting off with board games, it leads into web comics, comedy desserts, video games, toy blocks, hostages, customer tracking, copyright enforcers, ghosting networks, short people, piñatas, and ending with actual physical sports. Eat up:

That week went far quicker than could be accounted for; at least that is the thought here. Regardless, we have here plenty of things to make up for the gap in time. Lots of Halloween related links, of course and everything else. From breaking CAPTCHA to programming robots, horoscopes to cartoon maths, Lego-style phones to AR alternatives, life hacks to comments on porn videos, false identities to microscopic imagery, spying on the Brits to chaos theory, haunted paintings to period RPGs, video games without rules to breaking the rules of video games, football players to pop-up picture books, Steve Jobs to Ender’s Game, giant death storks to fighting like a gentleman. It’s all quite a mess; so dig in and enjoy:

Requesting permission to engage, over

It has been a strange week on the home front. So rather than delving into that, we’re going to jump right into what’s collected here. Hopefully it’s not too heavy.

There’s loads about the NSA, which up until now has been avoided as a topic of discussion, but it’s everywhere of late, so the smarter side of it is here also. A couple of music videos, some things about games — virtual and tabletop, horoscopes, a couple of anomalies in the natural world, how glass measures up in nature, something about translators, the questions a slave gets asked by modern people, Monty Python Lego sets, ornithopters that actually work, optical illusions, a Lord of the Flies scenario, the rush to create secure email, a video about a fox, and a nice little finisher with job applications with a twist. First up though is an artist’s collaboration with her daughter:
