They’ve started arriving!

Well, Lego Steve Jobs was sent out last week, and at least one person has received theirs so far! So when you receive yours, don’t be shy — send me a pic! It will make me happy :) This is not a scam :P Update While I was typing up this blog post, a couple more have been reported to have arrived :)

Things: Caribee backpack

For my first Things entry for 2012, I’ll be Tolkien[1. Not a typo.] about my black backpack. I’ve had it now for 13 years. I know this because I received it as a gift from my then-girlfriend’s parents for my 21st birthday. Although I wasn’t expecting a gift from them, when they gave it to me I felt awkward because...

My Family, by Smog

My Family, by Smog. Occasionally I’ll have a severe craving to hear this song. I don’t exactly know why. It’s at the same time dark and funny, but it’s not a dark comedy. There’s a desperation and an honesty to it. It’s super simple. It’s a cross between The Paradise Motel and Swans. It’s...

Indie Mac software

I’ve gone on a spending spree for indie Mac software. I write this as both an acknowledgement for these hard-working developers, and as a sort of apology.

Kickstand comics

Great news! The guys at Kickstand Cyclery have put their Yehuda Moon comic books up for pre-order. Which is not that exciting, except that this is the first time volume 1 has been available since the first run sold out (long before I got into it)! Pre-ordered. Awsm. Get your arse into (fixed) gear and pre-order your Yehuda Moon comic...

No Flash

Prelude I’ve recently reinstalled the OS and all software on my MacBook Air. This time I’m going to really try and not install Flash Player. Last time I did this, I eventually folded and installed it, even after trying ClickToFlash. It was simply easier to have Flash Player installed and not deal with clicking all over the...

Faraway Beach party NYE 2011

Here’s a teaser image from our New Years Eve beach party in country Victoria. That’s right, I said beach party. More images to come soon, but I’ve put this one up because a) I’m heading away to Kuching for Chinese New Year this long weekend, and b) I think it’s rad. (Tap for a large version) Back in a few...

That’s a bag full of packaged, hand-addressed, multi-stamped, register-mailed, and customs-noticed, Lego Steve Jobses.
