Essex, England, May 2003

"On May 3rd, 2003, I got a digital camera as a present from my parents. I was 24, living at home, and in the middle of doing my degree. We had two cats, and were soon to get a third. Like everyone else with their first digital camera, I immediately spent the next month taking pictures of all the incredibly mundane things you were never really allowed to take pictures of before. Bookshelves and bathrooms and carpets and curtains. Desktops, cupboards, TV screens. Cats. So many cats. Then I forgot all about ever taking them, and never looked at any of them again until now. So here are nearly a thousand pictures of Essex, England, in May 2003. Almost all of them are extremely boring. A significant proportion of them are either of myself or my cats. 99% of them are in 640*480 format. 23% of them are extremely blurry."

This was a year before YouTube, and the Internet went crazy about their new found ability to virtually tickle a woman lying on a bed. It fell off the Internet in 2009 and with the death of Flash you can't even (easily) see it on archive.org any more... so I recreated it for the modern web. [more inside]

Nicktoons in the Trap House

I wrote about 90s/00s references in today's hottest hip hop (from Lil Uzi Vert's Spirited Away t-shirt to Offset's diamond choker) and what they say about rap's obsession with youth as a status symbol. [more inside]

Another Podcast Starring Two White Guys

The Bad Memory Podcast (I know, the name is terrible) is a show where two dudes who live in New Jersey sit down and talk about whatever is on our mind. I know, it sounds terrible, but it's actually pretty funny. [more inside]

The Pointless Weblog

The pointless weblog is a place where I post scans of some of my old and partially forgotten things, like papercaft spaceships, 80s comic strips, top trumps, puzzles, and other nostalgic things, as well as a science fiction story my brother wrote when he was about 7, and photos of my nan growing up in pre-war france.
