Kinetic and Interactive Sculpture

This is one of the fields I’d really love to someday apply my skills with electronics and mechanical technology towards.

From the “excessively pleasing” department….

Flip dot love?

Shitposting about ShitPostBot.

I thoroughly confused some fans of ShitPostBot 5000 by joining their Patreon with my call sign as a custom title.
Now, a word on ShitPostBot 5000: it’s a bot that automatically generates memes every 30 minutes and posts them to Facebook and Twitter.

It’s gotten kind of frighteningly accurate as of late.

I think it could pass a Turing test:

Give a human instructions to create dank memes, then compare the result to ShitPostBot’s output.
I’m honestly suspecting the Turing Test will pass.
Oh what an amazing world we live in! 😀

ShitPostBot For President!!
Here’s a glorious example of ShitPostBot output from today:

Spot on.

Oops I think I accidentally made myself a rave flyer

Every time I start messing around thinking I want to make business cards for myself, THIS KIND OF THING HAPPENS

 

but believe me the music will be more interesting than you’d expect

That was the most polite defacement ever

But alas, the fact someone got in here means I have to clean everything out and ensure there are no curious backdoors now. Still though, I am absolutely loving the fact that whoever posted that used my lulz category and didn’t do any bizarre damage or remove my content.

Kudos to… whoever you are 😉

I’m leaving the post in place because I consider website defacements to be a really interesting sort of digital art, worthy of preservation (in the same way that vintage graffiti is).

The beautiful music of CIALYN

I was looking around at the Boards Of Canada Subreddit and found a link to CIALYN’s “A Night Of A Short Wave Listener”.

 

I’m very glad I did, because this is just wonderful. The style is very much like that of Boards of Canada, with really mysterious sounding synthesizers and samples that sound like they were off some wonderful but long forgotten tape.

The SoundCloud page has some wonderful tracks too.

 

Definitely worth looking at if you like BoC. Just saying.

Metric!

Metric Is A Perfect 10

This poster graced a wall at the West Dade Regional Library for years when I lived near there, and it’s totally fabulous. I am glad I finally found an image of it online.

Metric is great though. Seriously. Especially if you’re as derpy as I am with math.

DUMBFUCKISTAN DATA, Inc.

Please note that this is a relatively content free shitposting- an informative and probably hilarious to read post on issuing an FCC complaint regarding Comcast falsely claiming data overages on their shitty monopoly cable internet service is coming soon

For now

Where’d I put the donut wrench, clearly these require a giant hex wrenc
