Reminder

I actually planned to do something else here1, but it was too time-consuming for a Tuesday night, so I’m just keeping it simple with a little reminder coming via BustedTees: Now go buy a shirt. 1And no, I’m not going to tell you what it was. It wasn’t that great anyway.

Sneezing Things and the Laughing Baby

I caught a nasty cold again. It doesn’t feel so long since the last one. For me it usually starts with a sore throat.

The Wake Up! Playlist

I recently put together a playlist in iTunes which is intended to wake me up on my way to work each morning. It seemed the obvious thing to do since I tend to listen to the same stuff in the morning to get me in the right mood. I use the shuffle option on my […]

Plugins, Blogrolls and a Cloud to Consolidate

I’m currently trying to bring some order into my online life. The first step was probably to switch from Bloglines to Google Reader, a decision I haven’t regretted one single bit so far. I had been using Bloglines for a couple of years and I was never really unhappy with it, so I didn’t even […]

Done With Gaiman (Or Not?)

No, of course I’m not done with Neil Gaiman. I’m so far from done with him I don’t even have words for it. However, as of this month I finally read Stardust and now I think I can say that I am more or less done with what I would regard as the essential selection […]

Here Be Subtlety – New Generation

If you don’t read my blog in your feed reader like I read yours, you probably have noticed that Here Be Subtlety’s outfit changed last night. I’m still working on all the loose ends with CSS and whatnot, but it should work fine, especially if you don’t use IE – which… why the hell would […]
