While I’m sharing interesting toys…

T-1000, with surface-to-air ass. Only got one though, so keep track of where you shoot it or he’ll never be able to sit down again.

I’d be hard-pressed to show anyone exactly what I’ve done in the last week, since it’s been almost all mental work, but by Yog-Sothoth, it’s been hard. It’s strange to feel worn out from thinking, but I’ve been doing the real squinty-eyed kind of thinking, which should have cartoon effort lines radiating from my head and hanging in the air so everyone knows that’s what I’m doing and it’s really hard grinding.

The results have been good (it’s all been book-thinking) but I feel like I’ve dug ditches for days. Haven’t been looking out at the world very much.

But I’m here now. I’m back. They don’t get any more “back” than I am this very minute. I am totally back and here.

In fact, I’m right behind you. That’s why I’m so happy.


This is quite creepy enough to be a profile picture, but it has a caption, which I tend to avoid. Therefore, it will make a solo appearance here.

Only fair…

Pretty much the state of play -chez moi-.

The ‘Captain America Statistics Song!’ Is A Sobering Reality Check
ADHD’s updated Captain America theme song runs through some important American statistics — none of them good.

Life imitates Art, blah blah woof, these are still pretty damn excellent things. Reality can be fun. The Russian caves are something I’ve seen in dreams and didn’t know they were real.

This Is What Happens When You Accidentally Email Your Entire Company
I created a monster.

The key thing to realize here is that these are riddles, and may depend to an extent on word-play we don’t recognize, so they’re not your normal “jokes”. But still pretty interesting.

The world’s oldest “Yo mama” joke is 3,500 years old
Around 1,500 BCE, a student in ancient Babylon inscribed six riddles on a tablet. 3,500 years later, these proto-jokes lose a lot in the translation, but one thing’s for sure: the Babylonians are saying something about your…


Aren’t these lovely?

Former laser physicist turned artist, Tom Beddard, has created these incredible fractal models. They are ‘truly fractal’, because you can see more and more detail, the closer you peer down onto the surface. Read more:

A sudden flashback. Had forgotten seeing this live. Sued. SMH.

Finally beginning to check back into Earth Time after a few weeks of running around doing stuff that prevented coherent thought of the type I prefer. It’s interesting on this planet. I should visit it more often.

This is so very, very What’s Happening Now.

In case you haven’t seen it, this is my Picture of the Week. If it wasn’t horizontal, it would have been a profile pic.

I have to agree withe the critique, except I love them for all the same reasons. Thank you, Grey Group advertising executives, for making ordinary television viewing a very slippery slope for sanity — as it should be.

Fuck These Puppets
This is not a think piece about how “problematic” the terrible fuckin puppets are in DirecTV’s new series of ads currently running over and over during every commercial break of every TV show. It’s A FACT PIECE. And the facts are in: Fuck these…
