I know! How amazing is this!

Well, there goes another week. It’s a touch absurd really. No matter how much you try to get things done beforehand, the weekend creeps on. All inexorable like. Whatever.

There’s a lot of stuff following this bit of drivel: a whole panoply of interesting and boring, of fantastical and mundane. And maybe there will be a magic show afterwards to which all these fancy words actually apply. Maths, pachyderms, holes, statues, cakes, racing, slavery, medicine, movies, fools, installations, foretellings, advice, communications, automatons, questions, developers, and extra-terrestrial life — it’s all in here, so dive in and eat up:

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:

Even empty space has vaccuum energy

Sometimes the days fly by, other times they seem to drag on an on. Can’t be too sure which it has been lately around here; time is fluid and not prone to stability.

Today’s links move between technology and everything else and back again quite a lot. Between children’s television and fighting games, you’ll find wireless technology, satellite photography, new MOBA games, wireless warriors, nail polish, GPS 25th anniversary, sand art, horoscopes and more horoscopes, cosplay, gamer racing drivers, avoiding censorship, emotion recognition, thoughts on the future from the past, musical FPS, nuclear fusion, crazy objects in the third dimension, and bouts of humour scattered in large clumps. So jump in and enjoy it all:

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:

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:
