Toys

Shiny new toy! Unexpected windfall over the weekend, so I bought myself a Revo to celebrate. It’s a nice piece of kit, but doesn’t seem to have as much free software available for it as my Palm III. Sigh. If anyone knows of a site with any good freebies for the Revo, let me know, please.

Otherwise I’m stuck with the spectrum emulator.

Anyway, tonight’s project: Get on-line with the beastie, and see how roadofhate.com looks.

Awards

The winners of the Yell Web Awards have just been announced. And once again, they’re pretty much meaningless shit. Still nice to see that the one really good site in there, k10k managed to get best runner up. Load of old toss, basically.

Archives

More comics related nonsense. Grant Morrison (The Invisibles, Kill Your Boyfriend) has agreed to allow some of his old strips back into “print” on-line. More about this can be found here.

Hunger Site

Once again, I get around to updating this as I’m about to leave work. Naturally, I’ve entirely failed to find anything interesting to blog today, because I’ve spent up to my elbows in computer bits, so today’s only link is to the site that you all should have sat as your homepage, The Hunger Site. There is no reason not to.

Channel Zero

Y’know, I feel really guilty about not updating this thing often enough. I ought to starting blogging items from news sources in an effort to appear up to date and well informed, or something.

Anyway, some instructions for you: Coming later this year, a re-released and remix Channel Zero book. You must own this. This is not exaggeration in any way. It’s one of the most important works of recent years, and one that you need to pay attention to. Go here for more information.

Fashion

While contemplating buying one of memepool’sall style, no substance” T-shirts, I couldn’t resist browsing the punkass gear website. OK, so many of them are just tired slogans designed to piss off anyone looking at them, I may have to buy some of the others. Especially the “My God can beat up your God” shirt. Mind you, that’ll probably piss off anyone looking at it, but it’s funny dammit!

Delays on the line

OK, it’s been a few days, which I feel kinda guilty about, especially since I signed up to gblogs the other day, and put next to fuck all content up in the few days immediately following. Still, I’ve got a decent excuse, I guess – I’ve just moved house and started a new job. The flat is ace, and really conveniently located, and I’ve moved in with two good mates, which may or may not be a recipie for disaster. I’ve not yet had time to get narked with the job, so I’m even enjoying that.

Linkdump – proto edition

I’m going to re-design this entire site, at some point soon. One of the things I want to add is a related links section on each page, so that I can get permalinks to stuff. For example, this page ought to have links to my favourite blogs, really.

Until I get around to that, some quick mentions:

Tom Coates, another Invisibles fan, has managed to take some deeply improbable colours and make a thing of beauty with them, over at Barbelith. His content is pretty top notch, too.

Lyssa Hamilton-Percival is a self proclaimed bitch. There’s usually something of interest linked on her blog somewhere.

Does the fact that I read and enjoy Charlotte’s Breast Chronicles make a chauvinist pig? Also, she has a ace domain name.

I came to Kitschbitch through Tom’s site, and rather enjoy it.

Finally, The Memepool. Always something mad and strange.
