:flash: AoC good times with a horse – “Having fun with a horse mount!” what a cunt, tbh.

:flash: Big Ideas (Don’t get any) – “I grouped together a collection of old redundant hardware, and placed them in a situation where they’re trying their best to do something that they’re not exactly designed to do, and not quite getting there.” the resulting radiohead mashup is hella funky.

:flash: pieceoplastic – Plurk.com – some people claim plurk is the next big thing after twitter. it is certainly making twitter more gamey, putting it in a timeline, but, hmmm, it’s still offensive in it’s banality. i guess it’s still only fun for people with huge friends-lists.
