Lost Voice Comedian

Even without being able to speak, his comedic timing is perfect. Seriously, this comedian is completely hilarious and all his humor is very personal. The video is great, and short, so a quick watch for a break on Friday. It’s from the Britain’s Got Talent show and brought to us via Boing Boing; the Lost […]

Getting to Know You

Or at least, getting to know someone. I am the world’s worst at “small talk”. And, for pity’s sake, do NOT ask me what I’m thinking. Do that and you’re likely to get back some pseudo-intellectual gobbledygook about patterns of language and how we mimic our significant other. No, seriously, I actually found myself thinking […]

Interactive Self-Care

Or, my best advice has been reduced to a small web page. Seriously, I cannot tell you how many of my friends have come to me with major issues that tend to include things like panic attacks, crippling self-doubt and related side-effects. It’s possible that’s the result of them knowing I’ve been through most of […]

Hyperlight

A short film about a classic sci-fi problem. It’s another Friday, and, as usual, my poor, little brain has been cooked pretty well this week. If you’re feeling the same way, we’re both in luck because I have the perfect 20 minute distraction from your week. I don’t want to spoil anything, but this very […]

PWNED?

Have my super secret accounts been compromised? Probably. I know, that’s not really what anyone wants to hear, but it’s also pretty truthful at this point. I mean, if you pay any attention to the news these days, then you’ve heard about all the recent data breaches. Most recently, there’s the Saks Fifth Avenue and […]

Blast Radius

This may stretch the limits of what even I consider “fun”. Ever since I was in junior high, I’ve been a little too interested in nuclear war. Personally, I blame the Cold War and movies like . It looks kind of cheesy now, but back in the day, we were all terrified that this was […]

Prospect

A brilliant sci-fi short film. You all know how I love free stuff and that I love science-fiction. This is both. And, it’s a film which debuted just recently at South by Southwest in Austin. It’s about prospectors on an alien planet, though exactly what they’re prospecting for is somewhat questionable. The risks they’re taking, […]

A Little Fantasy

No, not the naughty kind! Ugh, you perverts who immediately thought of something naughty should be ashamed of yourselves! Also? You are my people. Seriously, though, this is the totally safe for work kind of fantasy. And by “little”, what I mean is “miniature”, as in small dioramas. Because, that’s what I have for you […]

SXSW 2018 Music Stars

As picked by National Public Radio. When I was in college, a good friend of mine who happened to be a jazz musician and a dual English and History major, told me I was “tragically unhip”. Sadly, he was not wrong. I’ve spent no small amount of time since then trying to shake that reputation, […]

A Game of Flowers

This game is a little existential, but not in too challenging a way. I’ll be honest, I’m a bit beaten down this week. There’s been a lot. A lot of problems, a lot of work, a lot of everything. And, as a result, I’m just beat. Still, I have a link to share. It’s another […]
