    This content was imported from gomi no sensei, a project I briefly did during the early months of the COVID-19 pandemic. Instead of maintaining yet another WordPress install, I’ve decided to shove this content into the everything bucket that is my long running personal blog. 🥴

    Back at it again at Krispy Kreme


    A browser based, live coding, video synthesis system, hosted on Glitch. There’s a ton of resources in the inline documentation if you feel like playing around with it.

    Or, if live coding isn’t your thing, just light a joint, put something chill on the stereo, and zone out for a while.

    I’ve been writing the presentations that I give at WordCamps in Markdown for ages. Now, with a tool like Video Puppet, I can turn my slides into videos — with automated narration! — without much effort.

    Ever since I saw that Brandon Boyer Vine of Qrion dancing around to this track during a DJ set a few years ago, it has been a perennial favorite around these parts.

    Listening to it always puts me in a good mood. Hopefully it’ll put you in a good mood too.

    I’m a sucker for a good stencil typeface and this punky one from Shiva Nallaperumal is of my favorites from the past few years.

    Probably ought to find a project to use this in then, huh?

    I dunno… I’m just, like, really into late 60s, leftist, Parisian protest posters lately.

    You could waste a nice chunk of your afternoon browsing through Gallica’s collection. I highly recommend it.

    (I really feel like I ought to make a t-shirt out of this one.)

    :takes long drag off of vape: Yeah, man… I remember FOAF.

    I am 90% sure that I had a FOAF-a-matic generated RDF file on this site circa 2004, but I’ll be damned if I can find it in any of my backups.

    Speaking of early aughts throwbacks, apparently Soulseek is still a thing?! Gotta get my ass back on that and find me a copy of Phish covering Gin and Juice

    A great collection of notebooks that look like books and magazines featured on The Simpsons.

    From here on out, I’m taking all of my notes in a Gigantic Asses notebook.


    Alright… I’m running a marathon and not a sprint here — so eight is probably enough for today, yeah?


  • Ghost

    There’s been a lot of discussion around John O’Nolan’s Ghost today. And there should be. It’s a beautiful, blog focused reimagining of the WordPress dashboard that provides an alternative to what they’ve done with the dashboard on WordPress.com.

    A lot of the discussion is about how John would like to do this as a fork of WordPress. And while I think his efforts and ideas might help the WordPress UI Team more than a fork would, I’m really hoping that someone picks up and runs with his editor idea.

    Ghost Editor

    Maybe that’s influenced by the fact that I’ve been working in Markdown more and more lately. Still I really like the idea of a quick, split paned writing area with a live preview.

    So, uh, mind making that happen, LazyWeb?
