Spent half the day wrestling with Powerpoint at the day job, spent most of the evening wrestling with flaky animation software for a web client. Can't even bill for most of the time. Fuck technology, quite frankly.

I have just discovered the wonder that is the Onion's "A.V. Club Undercover". Which means I have just discovered GWAR covering Cindy Lauper's "She-bop": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fGZ3FFKvdsA and Iron & Wine covering GWAR's "Sick of You" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xg2FhLqCNN4

Just because it made me giggle uncontrollably :) From the legendary Patches by Kelly Vivanco.

Well, after many years of avoiding it, it appears I must bite the bullet and actually make a Powerpoint presentation.

<surveys the interface> Well, this all looks quite straightforward. Tell me, fellow travellers, where might I find the "Not look like shit" button? Bit concerned it might be missing from my copy...

Good luck!

I think they took that button out in 2008, it is part of the charm of Powerpoint presentations!

Just did a very stupid thing. Or at least, just laid the groundwork for doing a very stupid thing ^_^

Nope. Want to retain the option to back out with my pride intact :) You'll know in...a week and a half.

Right now it's easy to believe the message (with which we are being bombarded on all sides), that the world is worse than it has ever been and getting worse faster. Here are ten charts that show you why that's bollocks :) 
When I published Abundance: The Future is Better Than You Think in February 2012, I included about 80 charts in the back of the book... read more

Something beautiful amongst the bad.

You're probably aware that since the Leave vote there has been a huge spike in hate crimes and racist attacks - basically a lot of racist arseholes have taken it as an endorsement of their point of view and it's given them courage to act. The police have reported a 57% increase in hate crimes over the last week.

The #SafetyPin idea is simple and, I think, beautiful: Wear an empty (but closed, obviously) safety pin somewhere on your clothing to indicate that you are a safe person for foreign-born folks to talk to, to walk with, sit next to on a bus. It doesn't mean you have to be a hero, and it doesn't say anything about how you voted or even your stance on immigration; it just means that you reject violence and hatred, and support those who are victims.
One of the ugliest side effects of the UK's decision to leave the EU last week has been a sharp increase in reported hate crimes.

Story
Introduction

I'm a former IT technician, security guard, cleaner, railway ticket inspector, graduate in Psychology and Art History, and a geek, foodie, philosopher, web designer, shaman and writer. So far. I'm from Bedford, England and I'm 29.

At the start of 2007 I decided to sell or give away everything I owned and travel round the world for an indefinite period of time with just a backpack and a craving for adventure.

I hitch-hiked across two thirds of Canada and the United States and a good chunk of Mexico, appeared in a rodeo, saw a killer whale from a tiny fishing boat, camped in the Black Rock Desert with seventy-five thousand people for a week (twice), spent forty-eight hours straight on a Greyhound bus, saw Bob Dylan perform live in Texas, toured NASA, ate alligator in New Orleans, celebrated Thanksgiving on a ranch, studied yoga in Vegas, and lived in San Francisco for nine months while working as a cleaner by day and a bouncer by night.

I'm currently working as a freelance web designer, but I'll shortly be retraining as a life coach!
