The cynical would say that an SEO specialist sees people only as datapoints, incapable of actual thought or ideology. That’s true, but lets us off too easily. Rather, we see people as disembodied eyeballs, hovering endlessly in front of computer displays, consuming blogs and marketing ephemera without pause. It’s a vision of the world which is, as you can imagine, fundamentally optimistic.

I was pretty obsessed with the magically harmonious Lucius and Turn It Around a few months ago. I stumbled into a pretty awesome live version of the same track and a pretty tight set they played on KEXP.

No, I did not mean diction

Ruction? Diction?

So Google’s search term spellchecker thinks I have typed in something wrongly when I was actually using a Google macro to find the definition of a legit word. Is it that big a deal? What else do they get wrong? This is worrying because, like most people, I don’t sound very smart without Google.

I caught Edge of Tomorrow a couple of days ago and it was an extremely entertaining movie. And this incredibly likeable John Newman track during the closing credits made perfect sense.

An English translation of ‘Le Transperceneige’, the French graphic novel created by Jacques Lob and Jean-Marc Rochette
A French graphic novel made into a movie by a Korean and American that was filmed in the Czech Republic and Austria. (I could hardly recognize the Scottish actress Tilda Swinton in the trailer.)

Pictures from a special tour of a denim mill
These beautiful pictures from the 3sixteen guys make me really regret skipping Kojima (out of sheer laziness, no less) on my trip to Japan a few weeks ago.

…stress releases hormones such as catecholamines and glucocorticoids in response to short-term situations of danger or trauma. It’s the brain’s natural threat response mode. The problem with prolonged or chronic stress is that those stress hormones then stick around and start meddling with the brain’s wiring […] causing declines in processing language and math in addition to weakening working memory and attention regulation. At the same time, those stress hormones strengthen the fear conditioning and emotional memory connections in the amygdala.

A site called

  1. I’ll discover an extremely well-curated site (like the one above).
  2. Then I will click on an individual image and go “That is very nice, who made/shot/did that?”
  3. I will get served up a larger image and then furiously scout around for a link or attribution.
  4. Inevitably, I will find none.
  5. Disappointment will lead to dismay.
  6. Being a boy of the 90s, I naturally will yearn for the gentlemanly link reciprocity of the days gone by.
  7. I will close my browser in a huff and proceed find someone to moan to about (4) and (6).
  8. [GOTO 1]
