The Machinist in the Works

The optimist sees a light at the end of the tunnel,

The realist sees a train entering the tunnel,

The pessimist sees a train speeding at him, hell for leather,

And the machinist sees three idiots sitting on the tracks.

— German joke

Working on a concept called the Machinist. This is the Header. Maybe I'll put some updates here.

Bertrand Russell's Useless Knowledge

"The world at present is full of angry self-centred groups, each incapable of viewing human life as a whole, each willing to destroy civilization rather than yield an inch. To this narrowness no amount of technical instruction will provide an antidote. The antidote, in so far as it is a matter of individual psychology, is to be found in history, biology, astronomy, and all those studies which, without destroying self-respect, enable the individual to see himself in his proper perspective. "

Dumbo dumbo dumbo, dumbo

The video starts interesting enough and slowly leads you to the realms of Wtf-land. It is hard to define the genre of the music though. I would say a bit psychedelic, a bit pop maybe? A very noisy texture which does not bother the listener, which is a rather rare achievement in the these days. Please enjoy responsibly.

La musique

Flow is important, where it carries you, where you land, how you tumble along with the tune, rolling with white sheets on a summer morning, marking the spring that will; maybe, never, come. Bit score and plenty more. Laziness, sleuth, lack-a-droll. Culminating beat which never leads but rewinds comfortably. Very blossomy. Le like.

An Interesting Conversation: Sans Alpha, Sans Omega

[eidola: pathosformel]

...I am predisposed to like things...I suppose, there is value in them...

Why do you even like things? Why do you even bother, enjoying, appreciating? It is, in essence, conservationism, against progress; you are a progressive minded person... Would it not be so much better if you helped the natural process? You are just postponing the inevitable.

What do you mean?

You know, ...destruction, rust, entropy. Might as well go with it, instead of running against the stream like a horny fish; unlike it, you have a choice.

Do I?

I think so. In a sense. Is it not the whole point with your kind being special, beloved, sentient, and all that? You have a choice to live in the bliss offered by the knowledge that your actions are inconsequential, that your affections are void of any true value; when the sack is void, so is the burden. The fish, on the other hand, will be always burdened, with a heavy determination, which will never pay off. It will disappear, blind, having never been offered to understand.

You are quite the devil, I thought you would lure my mind with promises, and entrap with unforeseeable effects of my desires, the whole Faust deal...

Officium non facit reum nisi actuum sint rea. My title is inconsequential, my acts..., they are at best neutral. It is just that, well, it works faster for some souls if you throw in riches, erotica, and fame.

What do you get out of it then?

Nothing really, there is no divine bet or rebellion, I am just a force, consequence without much cause, I get what gravity gets out of gravitating things at things....

Singularity is a funny subject. It is the dark monolith through which our minds cannot project to imagine what lies beyond, and some say it is not so far away. Nevertheless the youtube bit is fairly fun to watch and entertaining. It is a redo of the classic "I am the very model of a modern major general" by Gilbert & Sullivan's Pirates of Penzance. Enjoy. (you might need to squint a bit to read the subtitles)

The original is equally fun to

Benni Hemm Hemm

Apart from the fact that most nordic languages are cursed with liberally scattered letters and they sound as if the speakers are stuck in a limbo of constant coitus I find them on occasion to be very entertaining. Please enjoy this particular song which is quite enjoyable. Or else.

Anime Source

"Have a nice new year, and enjoy this stupidly long chart."

For us anime enthousiasts getting your hands on the newest, slickest, coolest anime is an act of securing your status in this vicious sub-cultural clique. Either that or we are just eager to get our next fix of animated drama, violence, and intricate storylines that you'd except from a Victorian era romance novel. (...Dare I say, when Mr. Jenkins was left with nothing on him, but his top hat, the heart warming light emanating from the sooting gas lamp glistened, nay, slid off of his well waxed moustache and muttonchops...) Hence I present to you a decent source of all there is to come this winter. What to expect, and all that... Apart from the questionable name of the blog itself, it has very decent information and is worth a visit. I implore thee to click on this very link.
