This blog is not (necessarily) dead. I’ve just been busy.

And since Dropbox is blocked at my new place of employment, and my primary interaction on here was gifs-via-dropbox…. well, I’ve been quieter. Here.

I’ve been active elsewhere, on-and-off.

But, for old times sake, some gif-links!

The Reaction Gif: moving image as gesture

That’s all for now!

Continued from : the horrible, wonderful world of Harry Stephen Keeler.


Here’s Keeler’s on explanation of his webwork-plot technique: The Mechanics (and Kinematics) of Web-Work Plot Construction


10 years ago, I missed the obvious: Wikipedia:Harry_Stephen_Keeler and the Gutenberg text of John Jones’s Dollar.


The Harry Stephen Keeler Society points us to 4 e-texts of Keeler novels, including an alternate source for ‘’John Jones’s Dollar.


Roger Ebert wrote an interesting post on Keeler back in 2010, that also includes a nifty book-cover-gallery and bizarre quotes.

Mr. Benedetti made me aware of another review of Mr. Barney’s Cremaster series, that of one Outlaw Vern:

Synopsis: In this third installment in the popular slasher series, some guy wearing a pink kilt with a napkin in his mouth (Matthew Barney) is in a big white room, climbing around on shit. The Rockettes are there and also the bands Agnostic Front and Murphy’s Law. But just when things seem to be going well, this lady turns into some kind of half cheetah lady. Will the napkin guy be able to still climb around and shit? Meanwhile, there are some little hammer things that he keeps fondling.

Review: Well there has been alot of talk about the Cremaster franchise which this guy Matt Barney plays in art galleries and he thinks it is not a movie but actually a statue. That is why he refuses to release any of them on dvd except for this half hour excerpt from part 3. Because it is a statue.

Packt celebrates International Day Against DRM, May 6th


According to the definition of DRM on Wikipedia, Digital Rights Management (DRM) is a class of technologies that are used by hardware manufacturers, publishers, copyright holders, and individuals with the intent to control the use of digital content and devices after sale.

However, Packt Publishing firmly believes that you should be able to read and interact with your content when you want, where you want, and how you want – to that end they have been advocates of DRM-free content since their very first eBook was published back in 2004.

To show their continuing support for Day Against DRM, Packt Publishing is offering all its DRM-free content at $10 for 24 hours only on May 6th. Check it out!

NB: I was offered two free ebooks to promote this event with the above. I like the books Packt puts out, I like things being DRM-free.

See more about the International Day Against DRM at Defective By Design, a campaign of the Free Software Foundation.
