Guess which one I am?
Guess which one I am?
I often find myself spinning off on tangents, my thoughts seeded by others' thoughts and ideas. Always thinking, always evaulating and interpreting and striving to understand.
Def: 'Sleight of hand.' You learn something new every day.
I'm posting these together, because they look a lot alike. Don't they? Hmm. Maybe it's just me.
There shouldn't be any compulsory maths, either. If they expect us -- as they do -- to choose subjects for the senior cycle based on what we'd like to do when we leave school, then surely we should have the choice to drop maths if we so desire. I would have in a heartbeat.
I shouldn't really post this. I have enough books to read as it is [c/o del.icio.us/thoughtwax].
And only one modern rap album cover? They could have filled the list with them.
I expected greater participation, but howandever. Good stuff here.
I owe Barry a link since I pretty must stole his homepage design for my new look.
The irony of a newspaper that's virtually invisible to the web behind its paywall having the gall to criticise the blogosphere hasn't been lost on me. And honestly, does anyone check the dictionary anymore? The correct spelling is 'weblog'. That's one word, people. Can't you stick to your own house style? [Gavin's Blog has thankfully reproduced the article so we don't have to pay to be insulted]
I can't understand why you'd use a sheet with a duvet. It's completely unnecessary, and just makes more work for yourself in the morning [c/o A Whole Lotta Nothing].
I've subsequently seen the man on The Daily Show, and it makes me want his book even more.
Probably best not to read this if you don't know the ending of The Music of Chance. Which I didn't until I read this. Thanks a lot.
Dublin traffic light signals are similar, but the sound patterns for green and red are more distinct.
My opinion? Nothing beats The Simpsons from Season 3 up to about Season 10, specifically that Superbowl episode. From then on, it's Family Guy all the way.
I'm keeping track of the news over at The Irish Whip. Eddie was one of those people you don't really appreciate until they're no longer with us. A sad time for wrestling, indeed.
Thanks to Andre for the find. Nice one.
Sorry about that Christian, I don't check Technorati very often. Thanks for the mention!
I wish journalists wouldn't try to pass judgement about topics they're completely unfamiliar with. The Pitchfork criticism might be valid, I'll give that much, but 'Blog-ish'? What is this person on about? And is there are shortage of subeditors at the Observer right now? Because frankly, it shows.
Not familiar? Oh boy, you don't know what you're missing. (Read The Guardian's feature on the strip for some background.)
Just beautiful photographs. I'd love to get prints of these.
Exploring London's clandestine underworld -- which is something Dublin is sadly missing, at least on this scale.
Short and to the point, but much food for thought here.
I've never played Risk... Didn't have much of a childhood, did I? [c/o MetaFilter]
It's like Lego for writers. Or something.
Is it just me, or are American newspaper designs a tad too 'showy'?
Ah! Finally I can save place on my iPod while listening to 3-hour-plus downloads! That's my in-flight entertainment sorted.
I've got so many elements to change to make my code strict, I don't think it's worth my while. But I'm filing this here anyway, for future reference.
Sit back with a bucket of popcorn and enjoy the show...
Seems like it'll be some sort of weblog/del.icio.us/news website hybrid. I'd like to see more.
Makes me wonder how badly future humans will understand us as we are today.
Oh, what romantic notions...
Interesting article on informal semantic metadata in web code, as opposed to just semantic usage of HTML tags, which is something I've tried to implement here. Just my little contribution to the Semantic Web. [c/o SimpleBits]
I don't know. I see what he's doing there, but I'm happy sticking with my Big Text File for now. The key, I think, is to not use it for archival, but only the stuff you intend to work with. Anything else can go in a folder as a separate file, just like you'd do if it was hard copy.
Camino was my browser of choice before I upgraded to Panther and got hooked on Safari. I'm very tempted to switch back.
So many! Who woulda thunk it?
Instrumental post-rock from France. A friend of mine is helping promote their short Irish tour next week; if you like early Don Caballero, like I do, they'll be right up your street.
I'll be sure to remember that.
Just set up posting from Flickr. Need to liven this place up a bit.

Tim O Thompson proposes a new solution to concert disturbances:
> Perhaps you could have concert zones. You could have the singing/drumming/air guitar zone, the text messaging zone, the marijuana smoking zone, the unlimited talking zone (somewhere in the back third), the sweaty zone, the drunks zone, the tall guy zone and the dancing with myself zone.
May I also suggest: a zone where they give you noise-cancelling headphones connected directly to the soundboard. That would be great.
I never did get a chance to ride on one. Sure, times change and things evolve, but London's losing a big part of its character.
The Morning News' guide to beards. But I don't think my own one fits into any of their categories.
This is why I love the internet, #574.
What's worse than this guy going to jail is knowing the movies he went to jail for.
Our version of Cartoon Network sucks so badly compared to this [c/o elsewhere.subtraction.com].
Something tells me Zimbabwe's government officials didn't like being told off by their parents when they were younger.

Now that's a headline!
But international postage is still an unbelievable 18 dollars for an 8-dollar magazine. Seriously, what's up with that?
