It’s been a long time since I’ve done Owl Pellets around here. As some as you may know/remember, that’s the ol’ link dump segment. I moved it over to Delicious (available in the sidebar) and left it at that. But Delicious irritates me.
So I’m bringing Owl Pellets back.
I’m sick of trying to keep track of things on Twitter. It’s a good and easy place to find and spread info but a shitty place to store it. And I’m hoping to start blogging again on a regular basis.
All I do is write now so I should have the time. I’m building a routine and I figure blogging should be a part of it. (The part before my shower.) I’ll probably start off with a short post –like this– move onto the pellets then, I dunno, maybe embed some random image. Maybe a song too.
I don’t know. And all this shit will probably go off the rails within a week anyway so, without further adieu . . .
Toymaker: This chap lives in the woods and makes robots. No word on whether Daryl Hannah has ever visited him.
Slime Has Memory but No Brain: Contains the term “externalized spatial memory” and that alone is worth the price of admission. (Admission is free.)
Bees Eat Too Much Candy, Barf Up Brightly Colored Honey: Some of the accidental impacts humans have on other creatures are actually pleasing. Don;t know how the bees feel about it.
The Brilliance Of Ichiro (!) Goes Beyond The Rules: Ichiro! has long been my favourite baseball player then he made me rethink that by being traded to the Yankees. Now he’s making me rethink my hatred of the Yankees. At least when he’s on screen.
‘A BABOON OF GENIUS’: NABOKOV TALKS ‘LOLITA’ ON FIFTIES TV: A Russian discusses his book about sexual obsession on American TV in the 1950s. Not as many punches thrown as one would expect.
Man Dies After Winning Bug Eating Contest: It may seem strange to enter a cockroach eating contest but when you stop to consider that the prize was a snake, well . . . Uh . . . Anyway, aren’t we all in our own private cockroach eating contests, trying to win a $450 snake. Maybe not.
