When the Chequers Plan came out, I found myself accidentally live-parody tweeting it as an effort to stay sane. It turned out to be an interesting experiment in political satire as a writer. So I decided to try it as a more deliberate creative experiment again this time around. [more inside]
A different theme each week! MeFite Kitteh and I co-host a Saturday-morning radio show at CFRC in Kingston, Ontario, and for over three years we've picked a weekly theme and explored it through music, in every style imaginable. I've been pushing the archives to podcast (legally, under a SOCAN 22F tariff) for a while now. Subscribe on Apple Podcasts, Stitcher or Google Play (search for Waffles Radio)! The site also archives a summer radio fill-in/podcast on video game music and composers, Virtualosos, which ultimately wasn't sustainable.

I've created a fun and hopefully good-looking new animated series set in space. There are three short episodes, and they're all in one video. Later episodes — assuming I'll have the time and inclination to keep going — will reveal that the mission for these astronauts is establishing a sports franchise in space, for television. But for now, dodging space rocks and worrying about avatars takes up most of their time. Enjoy! [more inside]
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.

An unexpected twist reveals Santa's true character...
The cartography of ethnomusicology? The archaeology of algebra? How about the radiology of ecology? OlogyBot is a Twitter bot that pairs two randomly-selected fields of study (mostly -ologies).
This started off as me tinkering with a Tumblr idea called Pulp Silence -- golden age comics panels with the dialogue balloons blanked -- but I got curious about what else I could put in these balloons. and one thing led to another. [more inside]
The Whelk and I asked ourselves, wouldn't the first season of NBC's Hannibal have turned out differently if, instead of turning to Dr Lecter for advice, they had mined the collective intelligence of AskMeFi? Ladies and Gentlemen, this is our design.
I was bored one day and started sketching out some old computer/video games screen shots in MS Paint. Somebody suggested I put them on a tumblr, which I did, then promptly forgot about it again until now.

Three years ago, I started a blog (as announced previously on Projects). Now that blog is a book, in both paperback and ebook form. This wouldn’t have been possible without the help and support of MeFi. Thanks everyone!
I wanted to start learning how Twitter Bootstrap works, and to brush up on my very rough HTML skills, so in a fit of pique I decided to make a protest site about a certain actor of a certain stature casting himself for a certain movie about a certain men's adventure hero. Including actual-size height charts and short reviews of every Reacher novel according to my patented 4-D Reacher Review® system (Deadly/Daunting/Detective/Drifter).

The iTunes/App Store link is here. [more inside]
My selection of photographs from supermarkets. I sneak in and arrange the spices into swear words, which makes me laugh. I have only found that Tescos has the required packaging to make this work, but if you know different please email me via the site and I will take your contributions. Only a few updates at the minute, but many more rude ideas floating around my head.
