Laziness, Impatience & Hubris

I don't program in Perl, but its author, Larry Wall, is a great human being with some advice that goes way beyond making computers do things. (Link to the full interview.)

Another Humble Bundle

I spent several hours playing Trine, today. It's good fun, if you're willing to overlook the efficacy of shooting skeletons with arrows. (Link.)

Imagining an amusing alternate dimension of popular art and music.

Music Video

re-blogged from BoingBoing

I was recently watching some music videos on the inter-tubes, just to see what could be seen, and came quickly to the conclusion that this had become a redundant, irrelevant art form (if it ever really was more than an advertising spot for pop music records).

I bumped into this today which has a great aesthetic, and maybe changed my mind.

As a side note, I have noticed that more and more commercial video content made in the United States is blocked for me overseas, whether comedy, cartoon, or music . . . I do not really understand why except for some odd attempt by media conglomerates to "combat piracy" of content they have already made freely available.
