A Leffe and a bucket of spaghetti after the race

Kasterlee Marathon starting line

Some New Cities is my new favorite Twitter bot, but it also makes me realize I increasingly wish I could follow these things on the fediverse or via RSS instead of on Twitter.

Kasterlee Marathon this morning will be my second in three weeks. Will be mostly through the woods in mud and in the low 40s.

Killing time until the late start is the hardest part.

I wish this interview with Mat Dryhurst deeper on the power crypto could artists to control their creative assets but I‘m intrigued to follow up on his work more elsewhere.

Nice concept: Website for Emily Cockayne‘s upcoming history of re-use collects essays on material that didn’t make the book (good use of the .work TLD as well)

Today’s Ghent-area library workspace is at De Krook.

Tiny art as pastime…

I had not considered the idea that Rockstar‘s corpus is largely historical, but Robert Whitaker’s exploration for Eurogamer is interesting.

An animation I did a few weeks ago is one of the featured apps of the week on Glitch with a nice illustration by Disa Wallander.

New Tacos of Texas docu-series from Taco Journalism guys starts with migas tacos at Joe’s Bakery in Austin which works for me.

One of those mornings that’s ending just as I’ve gotten back up to speed with a project that’s been sitting too long.

Great interface for color system editing at

Really love these felt sculptures of marine specimens by Hiné Mizushima. Nice process photos on her website as well.…

Pretty happy with these little randomly generated island mirage animations I put together on Glitch over the last few days.

Daily walk home after morning school drop-off.

I find this Environments app from Numero Group to be a really exciting format idea for reissue labels with ambient instrumental and field recordings in their catalog.

I thought the black in the existing Visual Studio icon was a drag and found this nice replacement by James Gilyead.

Going to the beach in Blankenberge today.

Selections of anti-Google/anti-gentrification graffiti and art installations proliferating in our old Berlin neighborhood. Having lived a block away from the proposed location, it is difficult to imagine this won’t have incredibly negative consequences for the neighborhood.

Working on the roof terrace while the sunny afternoons last.

I discovered a new-to-me record label yesterday and got stoked.

Nice, quiet guitar ambience on this upcoming North Americans record…

Using Glitch to build a JavaScript audio player for some interviews without the encumbrance of surrounding layout and dependencies. It will end up as a React component in a Gatsby project, but right now it’s just plain dumb HTML and vanilla JS and it’s great.

Brent Simmons has open-sourced the code for NetNewsWire 4 in conjunction with his taking the name and assets for the app back from Black Pixel. Fun times.
