Running against the wind

Stuff I’ve enjoyed recently:

  • Even the filler strips at Dresden Codak are wonderful. The latest (for which a permalink doesn’t seem to exist yet, but it’s on the main page) is a bit xkcd-esque, but with a healthy dose of surrealism.

  • “Don’t Make Me a Target” is my favorite song off the new Spoon album. The rest of the CD is really good too; other favorites are “Rhthm and Soul”, and “The Underdog”, for which there’s a video:

  • This post at 3 Quarks Daily is equal parts geeky, silly, and poetic: “Among the inert gases lowest on the Periodic Table of Elements is love”

    Someone at the conference specifically went up to me when I wore the ‘not antisocial, just shy’ and indicated that XKCD was one of his favorite web comics. I had my computer in front of me and was watching for someone with whom I was supposed to meet up, so in my distracted state, I think he felt I blew him off (even though that wasn’t my intent).
