American Juggalo

A documentary called American Juggalo from Sean Dunne on Vimeo. I found this 20-minute film fascinating because: It’s shot and edited extremely well. The photography is superb, and the editing allows the people to be the focus. There are no special effects to distract. The film is honest, due to the above reasons. The people in the...

That’s no moon

From as far back as I can remember, I’d occasionally stare at the moon. (I’d stare at the sun really occasionally, and see how long I could before I had to turn away. but I could stare long enough that the sun turned bluey-green, the rest of ther sky turned dark blue, and a white crescent shape spanning approximately...

Ping pong

Yesterday marked Kelly and my first visit to the recently opened Hampshire Residence games room. The Games room looks more like a carpeted heroin shooting gallery than a games room; it’s rather large, oddly shaped with many mini areas or voids, has one ping pong table, two card tables, two unhung dart boards, no darts, and some...

In recent years, the larger tournaments use the electronic Hawk-Eye system, where...

Yes, of course, it was a dress up party. No, the theme was not look like an idiot (the theme was “what did you want to be when you grew...

Voyager Q

In the process of ordering parts for the setup up my new Mac Pro, I knew I’d have a surplus of old SATA hard drives. I already had a few extra hard drives in the not-so-cavernous variety lying around, and with all new 3TB drives on order to replace my then current drives, I’d knew I’d have a few more. So I bought myself...

Koloss

I can’t remember the last time I was so eager for a new album release. Meshuggah’s Koloss is due on the 27th March, and I can’t wait. This SoundCloud taster is incredible! I’ve changed the cover of the site to reflect my anticipation. The image is of Jens Kidman standing over the stage monitors, shot by Mikko,...
