Finnegans Sleep
I took the first few paragraphs from the first ten chapters of Finnegans Wake, printed them onto strips of paper, then punched out the vowels (always Y!) and ran the cards through a punchcard music box player mounted on the wall in my bathroom.

Airships, a dieselpunk ship-building RTS
A real-time strategy game where you design airships and then fight with them. The aim is to have pretty chaotic explodey fights and interesting ship design choices. I've been working on this since October and just released an "early access" version.

Egress Methods
Paul Simon claimed that there must be fifty ways to leave your lover, but in his famous song he named far fewer than that. Egress Methods, a twitter bot, fulfills the promise that Mr. Simon could not—and then some—tweeting a randomly generated formula for lover-leaving every few hours, from now into eternity.

Ad Astra
Ad Astra is the fourth free EP of 2013 from The Harvey Girls. For it we wrote a play depicting a day in the life of an office worker who meets the weirdness and annoyances of the world with imagination. Full of sound effects and songs, the play Ad Astra is an updated radio play of sorts meant to transport the listener from their everyday office (or any other) job. The play includes fellow mefites melissa may and cortex as characters and musicians! The EP is rounded out by the tunes within the play itself, eight in total. So grab it for free at our bandcamp page.

Pizza Clones
You've heard this one: "Every pizza is a personal pizza if you try hard and believe in yourself." Pizza Clones is a Twitter bot that attempts to imitate this joke and elaborate on it, replacing the noun, adjective and condition with stuff it randomly finds on Twitter. Examples: "Every house is an open house unless you have NO pants on"; "Every weekend is a normal weekend if you regret at least one decision"; "Every time is an appropriate time if it wasn't for my aunt Barbara."

The Sometime Seminar Podcast
DaDaDaDave and I have a podcast of quasi-academic critical discussion, in which we talk at length about literature and sometimes other media. We're keeping a special eye on contemporary culture, but we'll also talk about stuff from the 18th and 19th and 20th centuries, in fiction whether highbrow or genre, poetry, and (largely Continental) philosophy. And we've taken occasional excursions into film and other media, from Dwarf Fortress to Django Unchained to MOOCs. We're trying for an eclectic mix of high and low culture, veering from difficult poetry to Game of Thrones and back again.

Gametron 7000
Gametron 7000 (GT7K) is a web-based game-building toolkit, designed and built by myself for use in non-programming-centric game design classes I've been teaching in NYC. It's almost all visual (no coding) and allows non-tech-savvy game creators to make fairly simple 2D sprite-based games. Even though it's a little rough around the edges, hopefully it's fun to use!

Waeguk.in
Waeguk-in is (a romanization of) the Korean expression that means 'foreigner,' and that's what I am. The site is Wonderchicken Industries™ newest entry into Korea blogging for fun and no profit whatsoever. I've dismantled my old neglected Korea-focused site and built a shiny new one devoted more to fun and interesting Korea-related stuff and less to turgid essays. If you're interested in Korea, come and have a look, or just follow @iamthewaegukin for updates.
