ME GO TOO FAR!
Sunday December 20th 2009
There's a new Dresden Codak out! Strange and wonderful as usual.
Poking around in the archive (because reading one Dresden Codak is never enough) I came across the Caveman Science Fiction strip which remains one of the funniest things I've ever read. Go on, take a look.
My obsession with FreakAngels has finally broken my mind. How else can you explain this? I mean, I could be out there living an amazing life of action, adventure and fast women, but instead I sit in the dark customising a mediawiki installation and combing through webcomic panels for every last, insignificant, tiny detail. I'm clearly insane.

The federal government has green-lighted its highly controversial censorship plan to introduce a mandatory internet filter that will block refused classification content* from being accessed on Australian soil.
* By which they mean anything on a secret government blacklist compiled without any oversight (judicial or otherwise) and with no right of appeal. Hooray for democracy!

I'm getting too old for this...
Sunday December 13th 2009
Had a great night up at Fabes' place last night with Ryan and Paula, playing cards (Gloom, Che Geek, Munchkin and poker) eating pizza and bawling songs at the top of our lungs into the iPhone audio memo app. I didn't get home until 3:00am.
It's just gone 2:00pm and I've only just stumbled out of bed. I feel like death. I think my body is trying to tell me it prefers a warm mug of cocoa and a bedtime of about 9:00pm on Saturday nights.
*sigh* I'm getting old.

An Arabian Moon
Saturday December 12th 2009
Hey by the Pixies always makes me think of being cooped up in an economy seat, flying across the deserts of Arabia, watching a full moon - bloody red with dust - suspended in the sky, eyes heavy with grit and lack of sleep.
Well it does.
