Discography GFX

Wonderful free MP3s, written on 8-bit systems like video game consoles and old Commodore 128s. Brings me back to days of eating pita pizzas and sitting in my friend's basement playing Ultima III. Good times.

Google Search: harper’s index cultural

AMAZING: Try this search for "Harper's Index cultural" -- when you click on Harper's Index, the searched-for words are highlighted in the body. That's very cool.

this site

I'll give you five reasons to visit : 1) Creepy name reminds me of "Se7en". 2) No graphics means no "Punch the Monkey" ads. 3) If you don't I might cry. 4) It's funnier than this list. 5) Any site with the word "Five" in it ROCKS!

Ambient Orb Device

If all the data in the world could be boiled down to three colored lights that could be on or off, bright or dim, and/or blinking, it would look a little like this . Think of it like an ultrapowerful wireless computer with a 9 pixel display.

Overheard

“The sad truth is that most evil is done by people who never make up their minds to be good or evil.”

...who said it?

“Almost every American I know does trade large portions of his life for entertainment, hour by weeknight hour, binge by Saturday binge, Facebook check by Facebook check. I’m one of them. In the course of writing this I’ve watched all 13 episodes of House of Cards and who knows how many more West Wing episodes, and I’ve spent any number of blurred hours falling down internet rabbit holes. All instead of reading, or writing, or working, or spending real time with people I love.”

...who said it?

“Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.”

...who said it?

“I play with variables constantly.”

...who said it?

“Only the person who has learned Continual Love coming from a heart of Gratitude/Worship can effectively deal with the problem of loneliness.”

...who said it?
