Firstly, the Stress Test – 27% stressed, apparently, which is “well below average”. I can get less stressed by eliminating: conciousness. Hurrah!
Secondly, the Goth, Trendy, Alternative? test. I am: 30% Goth, 5% Trendy and 45% alternative (“Angry *and* Arrogant! You have just enough knowledge of the world to really resent it properly”). Quite what the remaining 20% of me is, I’m not sure. Answers on a postcard, please.
(Tests found via various Sluts livejournals. I’m watching you, you bastards. I can see all the nasty little things you get up to when you think no-one’s watching. For god’s sake, stop that. Or at least use disinfectant first, you horrible, horrible people.)
An amusing irrelevancy, via Fiona. Apparently, goth is in again.
Words. Pictures. Magic. Electricana. Coming Soon.
This is why the death penalty is barbaric and inhumane.
I am worth $2,704,960.00. How much are you worth?
Note: I am prepared to accept significantly lower offers, from the right sort of person, with the right sort of terms.
Every time I read an interview with Grant Morrison, I become increasingly convinced that he’s not actually mad, but instead, very, very clever indeed.
A Day in the Life of Strange Company. This made me alugh out loud. Strange Company was founded by my mates Hugh and Gordon, a couple of years back. At one point, I almost took a job with them, and would still like to work with them on something, one day when we’ve all got the time. Either way, I thought it was a good article – I remember the “before” part of the equation, and it’s nice to see the “after”, as the company grows into something bigger and better. And I really must get around to that trip to Edinburgh to catch up with old friends. Urgently.
New month, new Tart. You know the drill. Although I am rather left wondering: who stole June? I mean, I know it only has thirty days, but it feels like about three since I was linking to it last time. And then being told that I shouldn’t recommend my friend’s work. Bollocks to that. Check out their interview with Antony. And buy Frightening Curves. Use the information there to pre-order it, or you may have trouble finding it.
Other things you ought to be reading in Tart: Dear Kady Mae. Funny and vicious as hell. Read This Or Die – About Age of Bronze: A Thousand Ships, this month. Fuck it, read the whoel thing.
John Lee Hooker is dead. Fuck.
One bourbon, one scotch…
And today’s link comes via Marcia, on the WEF Knowhere is a guide to places around the UK written by people who actually live there. In a very honest manner. I don’t agree with some of the descriptions given of places I know, but can see how people might feel that way about them. Worth a look.
