Hurt (NIN Fat Angus cover)
In the spirit of #keepmefiweird, an old cover I did of Nine Inch Nails' Hurt, guest starring an Amiga 500 (well, WinUAE, as I couldn't get my own running) on vocals. Why? Considering the tone of the song, I decided to go the exact opposite direction of Johnny Cash. It's a machine almost doing an almost Shatneresque take on a painful, regretful song. (Also: you see that spike at the end? It's loud. You've been warned)

confirmshaming
when a site asks you to sign up for their thing and then the 'no thank you' link is some hot garbage.

Cookbook Title Generator
Today's bestselling cookbooks can seem a little formulaic. The titles start to sound the same. The success of one book begets sequels, riffs and shameless wannabes. With such nakedly formulaic titles, couldn't you assemble a cookbook title by slapping together some diet buzzwords, food trends and publishing tropes? Why, yes you could!

Rule 34 - If something exists, there is porn of it.
You all know Rule 34, of course - Captain Kirk/ Captain Picard slashfic, XXX dinosaur otherkins, rubber fetish at the pickle factory, you name it... but what about the more obscure things, which might never get the sweet benefaction of Rule 34? This Tumblr blog to the rescue! Meticulously created from repurposed vintage porn magazine covers, now even such things as earbuds, potatoes, & bits of found chocolate can have porn about them. Also on the Book of Faces and the Twitters.

A Year In Glitch
I have been making (loosely) abstract expressionist (or colourfield) art on my phone. Naturally it's digital, and procrastinational. This is an essay-as-vehicle for a gallery of it.

Reverend Honeybeard
A year ago, in the course of taking a writing course from the inimitable Shira E, I found myself assigned with making music as well as writing poetry. I bought a MIDI keyboard and some software and taught myself how to use Ableton Live, Logic, and a host of iOS music apps. The assignment included posting the music I made, and I felt shy about posting under my name, so I created a musical alter-ego, Reverend Honeybeard. After the class ended, the Good Reverend seemed to want to live on and soon was making an experimental/electronic/ambient album, posting in his oblique way to Twitter and Tumblr and now composing/recording and uploading 1 song a day every day for the month of March 2016.

A Visit to Cementland
Here's an album of photos that I took one day in Cementland. Cementland is an abandoned/unfinished industrial playground/amusment park kind of place (if you're in to that sort of thing).

Women in Comics
As this comment went over well, I decided to make a longer, annotated list of women in comics, worldwide. Though I started with comics I like, I did some research to find stuff I didn't know about, and I'd love to hear suggestions for more. There are currently about 220 entries.

Over the Christmas holidays, the Minecraft Aporkalypse gang from the MeFightClub community resurrected the Aporkalypse server (the talk of the Metafilter community back in 2011) and placed it online for a special winter reunion. The server is still up and has a crowd of the regulars online every evening.

Neural Networks Translate Images to Poetry
Neuralsnap generates an image caption using a model I trained (convolutional and recurrent neural networks), then uses another character-level recurrent neural net that I trained on ~40 MB of poetry to expand the caption into a poem. (In this example, generated from a Rothko painting, the red text is the direct image caption, and the rest is the poetic expansion.)
