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.

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:

Look at his stupid hunter face.

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:

Why didn’t you do the knock part?

So, this post is late. -Ish. Or something. To make up for this, it is huge. About fifty percent more than a regular post. There’s all sorts in here this time as well; 3d printing, lossiness, suns, pretty girls, ants, psychos, television, orcs, wizards, copycats, brains, phones, spiders, teeth, santas, predictions, buttons, dinosaurs, makeovers, holes, fairytales, doctors, food, chalk, gears, demons, diacritics, books, superheroes, consoles, airplanes, surfboards and ponies.

Plenty to keep you busy for an afternoon or two:

That was perhaps a little excessive. Bonus internet points if you can point to any link that wasn’t referenced at the start!

Deduct a point from the effort gauge

Another strange week. Food appears to be a pretty strong theme this time around, with a spattering of news, music, science and art to round it out.

We’ll start with a thermometer tattoo, and move onto vinyl records and death games; search engine privacy, WHOIS lookup privacy, butterflies and wasps, hysterical photos, phones, the art of observation, repurposed coastal defences, insects and umami, why people are leaving Facebook, Grand Theft Auto V is released, lolita costuming, horoscopes and flying drones, something called a ‘swarm economy’, the internet of things and machines of death, the generation gap, and finishing up with the favoured burger of Hemingway.
