I was NOT promised an oppressive cyberpunk dystopia. What About The Flying Cars?!

Yearly reminder: unless you're over 60, you weren't promised flying cars. You were promised an oppressive cyberpunk dystopia. Here you go. — Kyle Marquis (@Moochava) July 10, 2013 FUCK NO! “unless you’re over 60, you weren’t promised flying cars. You were promised an oppressive cyberpunk dystopia.” I’m 31 and I grew up with The Jetsons, thoseContinue reading “I was NOT promised an oppressive cyberpunk dystopia. What About The Flying Cars?!”

My phone died and I wan’t those 6.6gb of pictures

I desperately want those pictures. The hotel wifi was not up to uploading the load of awesome shots (like those amazing panoramas I did) so I have a flaky  few days of pictures, some are there, others aren’t. And I want them all, obviously. Maybe I’d be happy if there were some for all days,Continue reading “My phone died and I wan’t those 6.6gb of pictures”

Analyzing a few of Tony Robbins’ TED talk techniques.

I don’t know a lot about Tony Robbins. In fact, I first heard about him in a Bruno the Bandit comic where Bruno gets a Tony Robbins Bluebird of Happiness. (I loved that comic!) I know he is a motivational speaker and that makes me slightly paranoid about any talk of his. That being said,Continue reading “Analyzing a few of Tony Robbins’ TED talk techniques.”

My ouya was planned to arrive between 14/6 (something like that) and the 1st. That’s what the email said and that’s the email that contained the mysterious tracking number that didn’t ever work anywhere, until some good Google Plus’er (Christian Buggedei I think) found out what site would take it and we all ended upContinue reading “So I had a little chat with DHL about my Ouya.”

Big brother is no longer relevant. From my recent tor article.

A paragraph from the new tor article. If not using tor, at least realize this The big fear of big brother watching you is no longer really relevant, we give away our data to what has affectionately been called “little sister”. She woes you with pretty images, convenience and a voyeuristic view on the livesContinue reading “Big brother is no longer relevant. From my recent tor article.”

Shannon Larratt, the father of BMEzine, is dead.

I read it on the twitters and if not, it would have screamed at me from the top of my Google Reader page. The father of BMEzine, is dead. The message is on the Modblog: Shannon Larratt 1973-2013 And they link to his final blogpost: Finita, la commedia It didn’t come too much as aContinue reading “Shannon Larratt, the father of BMEzine, is dead.”

Listening to a Warhammer audiobook again

After reading Horus Rising (actually gave it a 1* on goodreads; go figure), I had to admit to really not liking Warhammer 40k books. Lots of general 40K universe feeling, but not much or even barely any real story Today I read a quote that about sums it up.. Quite a few Warhammer books are to beContinue reading “Listening to a Warhammer audiobook again”
