Pinned toot


Unashamed space colonist & atomic energy enthusiast. Getting ourselves out of tight spots using technology is pretty much what we humans DO. Appeared in the 2012 documentary “Lunarcy!” & still occasionally get contacted by people who have seen it recently on CBC. Low-key supervillain, looking to build a better world that will be worth conquering. Not a typography nerd, but enjoy using LaTeX.

According to the weatherman, it's time to winterize my television.

Here you can watch my broadcast from last night, if you wish. There's most of an hour of SDF OpenVoIP at the end, with a big chunk of rant from me.

Just wrote (by hand, with a fountain pen) 16 postcards to philatelic dealers expressing my interest in purchasing bulk space stamps.

In perhaps half an hour, I'll be live-streaming myself reading a book. Later on, I'll dial in to SDF OpenVoIP on aNONradio. You can call in too, at (929) 299-1269.

uspol, inanity 

Apparently Yi Seok, a prominent member of the ci-devant Royal House of Korea, had several hit songs in the 1960s. I should see if I can find a recording, to go with my LP of songs by the late King of Thailand.

Maybe I should make it some kind of monthly reminder :
If you want to see the 2012 documentary "Lunarcy!", in which I appeared ―

Canadians can watch it via the CBC.

Otherwise, if you have a US mailing address, I'm happy to send you a "screener" DVD. With postal rates as they are, I'd use up too many of my higher-value stamps mailing to foreign addresses.

mail chauvanism 

If anyone is interested, you can watch the recording of tonight's Reading Stream here, for the coming 14 days. I may be back next Sunday night.

"Alex Lizard & the Jones People" could be the name of YOUR new band, if you would only open yourself to the cosmic unconscious.

mail chauvanism 

I apparently need a new mainboard for a Thinkpad X220, or else a whole new laptop. It’s running in “limp–home” mode right now (one core / one thread), but Heaven knows how long that will last. Whatever the underlying problem is, when running Memtest in multi–thread mode, the cores become desynchronized during Block Move, & the whole thing locks up solid.

cross–language punning 

truly bad taste in decor 

By 1919, it should have been bleedingly obvious to any competent, sane observer that warfare among industrial states was a catastrophe of such dimensions as to endanger civilization itself. And yet, the world order which emerged from Versailles was more authoritarian & militaristic than that of former days.

When was the last time you decalcified your faucet aerators?



I can scarcely believe it’s been something like 20 years since I last had a pocketwatch to carry. How ever did I do without one?

Over Munich today can be seen an advertising Zeppelin, advertising Zeppelin products.
