- That's a painting from Jim Davies: Pac-Man Art page. You should click and read to find out the philisophical depth of it. (Reminds me a bit of the passage I quoted in this review of the book "Lucky Wander Boy".)
- MJD's Universe of Discourse has some odd stuff on it, including the chess microvariant "hexapawn", the Dick Feynman Cabal of the Discordian Society, and other conceptually off-the-wall stuff.
- You're out of my mind.
Guess that makes two of us...
--John Gorka, "Out of My Mind". In May, I recorded that quote along with the inscriptin "out of mind, out of sight, out of milk", which I think occured to me in a dream or something.
- DB-DB has a lot of very odd stuff and a whimsical sense of design. And tiny naked pixelated men.
- Learn to hack old-school via the hacker's handbook -- circa 1985. Interesting for the history aspect.
"Her Bouldering Smeauty"
--Just a little meme that occured to me and got stuck in my head while reading poems for the blender of love yesterday.
Link of the Moment
This NY Times article about some compulsive hoarders might be a motivation for people who are trying to declutter. (Or maybe the opposite, maybe someone will think "I'm not as bad as THESE guys, so maybe I'm ok after all".)
I just went through all these old tapes I never listen to. Listened briefly to all the unlabeled ones. I discarded most, keeping mostly a few homemade tapes. I even got rid of "irreplacable" mixes that I'm never ever going to listen to. (Including, alas, one I think was from Veronika, but she didn't label it.) Other mixes I try to keep a text copy of the track list even if I get rid of the original again. I don't think I'll ever reconstruct them but its nice to know the information isn't truly lost, and a textfile in a folder especially for the purpose (with a index.html providing metadata for it, in fact) isn't a clutter burden.)
