 Google+ is the shiny new hotness! Add-ness, zone42@gmail, or Nick von Wahrheit. Circles, share stuff in Google Reader, need invites, etc.

Last Sunday Tinx and I did Amnesty International's Bike for Rights, about 50km coming and going. It was fun being part of a spectacle, people gawking at the flowing tide of green-jerseyed bikers. Legs a bit sore after, but that went away pretty quickly.

Monday, took my cat Momo to the vet so they could knock her out and cut her chitlins. :\ Now she's sleeping in my lap, still groggy, and she does this tiny pathetic meow-squeak. I thought a neutering incision would be bigger, but it's really small, like 2cm.

 Trying to get back into regular posting. Let's see... A few days ago I started putting mustard in my ramen,  it rocks, girlfriend says I'm weird. Just finished reading the Dresden Codak archive earlier. I'm looking to buy new hair clippers in the morning, my old ones are sputtering weakly and barely work anymore.

A few days ago I read that Watership Down is allegorically the founding of Rome: Romulus and Remus, the Rape of the Sabine Women, etc. Might re-read that now.

Obligatory Kitteh

So, shiny new camera must be used for the Forces of Good.


We found her while Tinx and I were jogging on Congressional Avenue, named her Momo. Yesterday, trip to PAWS for checkup, rabies shot, deworming. These guys need a good home:

I've been on the interwebs for years, but now, camwhoring my cat, I feel like a True Internetter.

Inception squee

Vincenzo Natali, the guy who directed Splice, was confirmed to direct Neuromancer. I tried Splice, and kinda hated it. Scientists can't be this stupid, much less supposedly brilliant scientists. Now, Neuromancer is my all-time favorite book, so I cringe to think what Natali will do to it.

So that's my setup, then segue to Inception. Somewhere, Natali watched this and thought, dang, Nolan beat me to the punch, he went ahead and did a William Gibson movie first. Anyhow, Inception was brilliant. About 30 minutes in, I turned to the girlfriend and said "This is what a Neuromancer/Count Zero movie should be like." Hollywood, please note, intellectually demanding movies really can make money! You don't have to dumb everything down! Caveat, you have to pull it off just right. :\

been having some bad nights lately, since the solstice. existential angst, the intense realization that life is finite, and someday i'll go into the dark, forever. sort of a shadow satori. there's a zen intensity to it, savoring the moments because someday, inevitably, there'll be a last moment and pfft. no matter how hard you hold on, ten years or fifty years or a thousand years, someday the line drops to zero. no one beats entropy.

and it makes falling asleep hard, scary, a tiny rehearsal of the infinite black that swallows us all in the end.

How to Train Your Dragon pwns Avatar in all the ways that matter. In other news, 2 weeks ago I crashed my bike and did a faceplant. It hurt, a lot. Busted up my knee but no permanent damage, limped around on a cane for a week. That was kinda odd. I had a large prominent bruise on my cheek, people saw it and the cane, and they stepped aside to make way, held doors open for me. Frankly it bugged me a little bit. I don't need your freaking pity. Someone said I was invalid. Didn't mean anything by it, but the Gattaca-ness of the word hit me. I was Not Valid. I'm never gonna use the word invalid to refer to a person again.
