Tea in Comfort

Some people think it’s weird that I shelve my hobby for six months of the year, and most of those people are hypocrites. They act surprised when I tell them that my passion for tea is put on hold during the warmer months so I can focus on colder things. Uh… so you like hiking …

Couch Con

In general, I’m as up for embracing flash-in-the-pan office design trends as much as the next person. Like, if my workplace wants to have a ball pit in the breakout space, I’m here for that. But there’s one trend I can’t quite seem to get my head around, and that’s the so-called comfortable workspace. You …

Car Cruise Crush

Dang, this vehicle is seriously falling apart. Maybe it’s all the racing to work? No…that’s just a bit of fun on my daily commute, fun that involves the occasionally running from the law. But I’m a child of the 90s, so it’s fine. I learned from cartoon ‘Pretty Car Dealer Sailor Hoon’ that getting involved …

All the Tinting!

Did you know that window tinting can reduce 99% of UV rays? Isn’t that outrageous? Why not 100%, for crying out loud? Good grief, the solution to this is so obvious. You get a bunch of evil scientists who’ve had their schemes foiled, you stick them all in one big room, and then boom. Profit. …

The Perfect Balance

Finally, I have found the balance! V-Type Exo Series-A is my greatest creation yet, a masterpiece of robotic engineering that can act even more human than humans themselves, and comes pre-programmed with a personality module that makes it the perfect balance between conciliatory and authoritarian. Concession in the areas where it matters, and the laying …

The Widest Windows

That pesky bee! Honestly, someone needs to do something about all these pesky bees around the place. I bet bees aren’t even important to the ecological process. We could probably just swat all of those pesky bees, and we’d all be a lot happier. Because they’re just so pesky.   You know what else I …

Glass: Fascinating

As an alchemist, I have a keener interest in science than my brothers and sisters in the mystic arts. That might be the reason I purposely arranged a demonstration in front of the king in which I promised to turn the castle dung-heap into piles of gold, but actually just cast a spell that made …

Good Old Tradition

I can’t believe I hadn’t even heard of Midler Lost a Tooth before I came to Australia. The whole thing is set in my home country near the turn of the century, but it’s just not a big deal there, so my friends thought they’d take me along to see a performance in Melbourne for …

Not A Bumpkin

These city slickers think they know everything. At the very least, they think we don’t know as much as they do, just because we’re not surrounded by thronging crowds of information workers 24/7. What do they think we’re missing out on? I can do without getting fried by wifi in metal box on a daily …

More Window Pixels?

So I hear through the grapevine that Over-Botch 2 is in the works. I didn’t think there was anything wrong with the old one, so they’re really going to have to work to justify why this is in any way necessary. That’s E-Freak for you; the biggest games conference in the world, and they just …
