yeah, it did that to me as well, had to change my nickname to something else and then it let me in.

Yeah, I should have guessed as much :(

Oh well, you can't have everything in life, I guess.

Not really related, but I'm still impressed every time I realize someone on Hubski has even heard of Kanata.

Welcome, hope you enjoy your stay!

What sort of stuff do you do, as an artist?

Hey, just to let you know, the image returns a 404 error.

Found out about Moon Hooch about a week or two back, definitely one of the best bands I've heard lately. Also, a tad weird, and the drummer is great.

Skip to 4:11 for Number 9, which is my personal favourite.

Yup, which is awesome, seeing how I use it in Chrome as my main ad blocker. However, I still prefer 1Blocker for Safari, since it's probably better for privacy (instead of the plugin scanning the page on the websites you visit, 1Blocker simply defines blocking rules for the browser itself). Plus it syncs with Safari on my phone.

Then again, 1Blocker isn't free, so...

Or, if you are on Safari, 1Blocker does a stellar job as well.

That looks adorable, I love it.

Hmm, let's see. This year I have read, among other things:

The Outsider by Albert Camus. I greatly enjoyed this one, will probably pick a copy in the original French (even though my French is abysmal). Have a copy of The Plague sitting on my bookshelf which I will probably get to reading early next year.

The Vegetarian by Han Kang. This one was... a little weird. It was a good kind of weird, but I don't think I will be in a mood to re-read it any time soon.

How to Travel with a Salmon by Umberto Eco. This one is a small collection of his essays, read most of it while travelling to Britain this summer. A lot of hilarious bits.

The Sellout by Paul Beatty. “It’s illegal to yell ‘Fire!’ in a crowded theater, right?” “It is.” “Well, I’ve whispered ‘Racism’ in a post-racial world.”

And right now, I am listening to an audiobook version of You Are Not So Smart by David McRaney, which seems alright so far.

What about you?

Oh, I have got to re-read Foundation, it was one of my favourite sci-fi series (granted, I haven't read that many).

Hope you enjoy it :)
