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:

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:

Aren’t you wonderful taking little Hugo to the museums?

Let’s just get this posted then. Rather than mucking about pretending more will be added shortly.

All sorts of things in here this time around. We have spies and traitors, snails and worms, apples and seeds, doctors and singers, computers and mecha, glasses and face recognition, texting and old games, horoscopes and comic books, 80s music and statistics, cartoons and web comics, creators and anniversaries, reasons and motor vehicles. It’s all happening. So jump right in and start reading a Q&A from the most well known “traitor” of recent times:

I dunno … the 70s maybe?

Well, this should have been posted days ago. For some reason it wasn’t and instead you get this minor trip back in time. It does include lots of webcomics and humour as promised last time though, so that’s something.

As to what’s contained herein, I’ve no real idea anymore. There is a large alphabeticised list of tags down the bottom, maybe that will help you sort out what is what. But there is plenty, and lots of fun little bits as well. Just a heads up, there’s two links as part of the first one, so enjoy the surfing:

Pay attention

You will always feel like your work isn’t good enough. As a salve, or simply as a way to stay sane, be in the world. Ride the train. Listen to strangers. Occasionally, if you’re brave, speak to them. Walk in the city you live. Pay attention. Don’t bother with taking notes, or buying fancy notepads. Try to remember as much as you can. Have just enough confidence in yourself to not be an asshole. Then, get up and go to work and try again.
