    The Parts and Burlesque Revue

There was a bar in my city that used to have a dada talent show thing. There was a girl who did a... dance? routine involving a metal codpiece, a die grinder, and Punish Your Machine. Her stage name was OSHA Violator. I would go to the Parts and Burlesque Revue, but I would be very disappointed if it wasn't in the same vein.

Go read Promethea. Alan Moore is great for that stuff, he cheerfully acknowledges it's all imaginary but thinks it's valuable anyway.

When the Happy Hacking keyboards were discontinued, I started stockpiling them so I wouldn't have to trawl ebay or something when I needed to replace mine. I still haven't needed to replace that one, 10 years later, so it was probably a waste of money, but good keyboards are important when you're typing all day.

What do you mean patchouli isn't a substitute for bathing?

    “When people finally receive the script, they’ve dropped out really fast. After people started dropping out, they said, ‘OK, don’t send people the scripts anymore.’

Admittedly I know next to nothing about the movie industry, but this strikes me as a good way to ensure no one will be willing to work for you in the future.

Machine learning is an awesome hammer, but there aren't all that many nails in a car. Film at 11.

CV Dazzle isn't a good alternative, but it's a better alternative.

My boss's daughter used to camp out in the back of my office listening to the music when he'd bring her in then be in meetings all day. I had a spare external hard drive laying around, so I gave her a copy of my mp3 collection.

My boss was very annoyed with me when she did a school presentation on her favorite poet, Lydia Lunch.

Love Spirals Downwards on a freeway at night is bliss. I don't think I've ever zoned out enough to hit anything.

My road trip playlists lean towards stoner metal by day and swirlygoth by night.
