Do you have a Pebble smartwatch? Are you tired of your watch always telling you the actual time? If "yes" to both, give me newest art project a go: BRC Time 1.0.
This is an adaptation of some code that I wrote for my project at Burning Man in 2009. The piece was a "surreal time clock" that gave the time in more human terms, and updates at completely random intervals. For instance, at 6:30 pm, it may say:
- six-ish - dinner time - nearing the bottom of the hour - six something in the evening - what makes you think time is linear?
There are literally, many thousands of possible messages. Always accurate, but seldom useful. Or always useful, but seldom accurate. Whichever. Anyways, you can find it on the Pebble app store. For free, duh. Just search for "BRC" or my name.
Also note -- this is the 1.0 release. I've been using it for several weeks now, but there may yet be some hidden formatting errors. Be patient, and if you do see any, let me know about them!
Astronomers have announced the discovery of an amazing object in our solar system: 2012 VP113, an icy body with an orbit so big it never gets closer than 12 billion kilometers (7.4 billion miles) from the Sun! That’s 80 times the distance of the Earth from the Sun. No other...
Opinion by Leslie A. Wickman, special to CNN
(CNN) The remarkable discovery, announced this week, of ripples in the space-time fabric of the universe rocked the world of science -- and the world of religion.
I was driving from LA today and was stopped on the 5 near San Onofre for about an hour. Traffic was just plain stalled. When I finally creep up to the choke point, I see about two dozen emergency vehicles and the scattered remains of (at least) two cars and one truck. I can almost guarantee that no one survived that.
So today's lesson: you can suddenly depart this plane at any time, and for no particularly good reason. I could say something pithy like "live like you are dying" or something. But I won't.
Instead, I'll be extremely grateful for what I have: a place to lay my head at night, enough food, and a few people who I love and who love me. And I'll take joy in the fact that I'm doing my part to help. Just make sure that you're doing yours, and we'll all make this all-too-temporary existence, better for everyone.
I guess I'm supposed to put something here that is both clever and insightful and designed to entice people to get to know me. But I won't. Ha!
Every-other-day-ish I post something of relevance to me. Probably artsy, or science-y or nerdy or something to do with whatever personal drama is in my live as I make a transition from extreme introvert to god-only-knows. So just read the posts, k?
There are a few people on this planet who love me for who I am. That's all anyone needs to say.
