I just felt like putting this one together. Even if you're colorblind like I am, It's nice to work in color every now and then. And what's more colorful than ponies? :)

I haven't been using G+ at all because, well, this is a pseudonym, and I worry that the account will be arbitrarily deleted by Google at some point.

But now they've integrated G+ and Google Reader. I use Reader all the time. I depend on Reader as a news aggregator.

Now that I can share things from Reader here with a single button click, you might start seeing posts from me here. They'll be links to articles that I thought were cool and worth spreading around. My own thoughts I'll still be posting to my webcomic and Livejournal. But with Google claming that they may change their naming policy, I might consider being a more active resident here someday. I like the software and interface, I just don't feel welcome. So we'll see.

I wrote a long essay on my LiveJournal about the New Aesthetic. I feel that it can be traced directly from postmodernism through proto-surrealism, and that gives us exciting insights on what the next big thing in the art world might be.

The takeaway insight? All art movements are nothing more than our culture pirouetting across the Uncanny Valley. When art gets too close to it, a Realism movement jerks us back toward perfect fidelity; then the dreamers jeté across the Valley toward abstraction, and iterations approach the Valley from both sides until the cycle repeats. This might get boring if not for reality's tendency to change.

(I wanted to post that essay on G+, but to be honest this is not a very good place for long-form thoughts. I know HTML, dammit, and I want the ability to format any articles I write. I don't think I'll be using G+ much. When I have something important to say it's usually large, with many links and examples, and G+ doesn't handle articles like that well. But I should try to post more of my less important snippets and one-link insights here.)
Let's talk about the future. More than one, in fact; both the real future and the future the way that we all remember it was supposed to be. There's an art movement that is being called 'The New Aesth...

This is the best idea I've heard in a long time. The Muppets hosting the Oscars. God, yes. Gizmodo is trying to start a campaign to make this happen.

So what's the best of the web today? I think this article linked by Metafilter about Imposter Syndrome.

Do you ever feel like you're faking it in your career or your relationship, and that someday you'll be found out? Stop worrying. The truth is that many people feel that way, and you're no less competent at it than they are. Just fake it until you prove to yourself that you've really made it.

Although that does bring up a scenario that's featured in my fiction a bit. What if you feel as though you're only masquerading as a human being? I feel that way all the time. :)

This sums up my feelings on the debt ceiling agreement.
