It's been too long since I last published a drawing.  So today I'm releasing an unfinished one I started earlier this year.  Sagami River.

A strange, strange man has been showing up on morning shows throughout the Midwest, claiming to be a yo-yo trick champion. He is not. He is actually terrible at yo-yo. Yet he keeps getting on the air.

This guy is my new favorite media prankster.

Not surprising at all, and uncertain if this should trouble me.

Maybe the question of the day is, "is this dependence bad?"  I'm sure there would be similar symptoms if everyone had to give up, say, cars.  Is this different?
The Library on Congress is going to archive every Tweet ever.  This is going to be embarrassing for all of us.

Some kind of explanation is in order, but that will have to come later.  Feel free to look/play around for now.

Man, there's a guy who should have stuck around.
A new version of FileZilla (cross-platform FTP client) just came out, which includes my latest theme.  (It's not the default, but it's selectable under Settings > Interface > Themes.)

Artist Caleb Larsen has created a device: A black cube, 8x8x8", with an ethernet jack. Upon connection to the internet, the cube checks to see whether it is for sale on Ebay. If not, it re-lists itself. The sale conditions mandate that the new buyer will keep the cube connected to the internet, and will sell it to the highest bidder whenever the auction ends. In the event of a sale, the artist gets 15% of the purchase price. The title of the artwork: "A Tool to Deceive and Slaughter".

The artist's page on the project:

The cube's re-direct to its own auction page:
