What an awful night that was.

Here’s an infographic about a song. This song.

Minecraft Project Day 13
Bit of a slow day. I collected all the other stuff I’d left in my cave hole, and finished off one side of the roof.

Time flew by…

3,138: Cubs

Well, that was fun wasn’t it? Here’s some graphics.

A simple one of every game of the Cubs’s season. (Prints)

Another one of the tree ring things. (Prints)

And one for Cleveland. (Prints)

And one for all 30 teams. (Prints)

Around the corner, I saw this restored, old taxi. This is how the taxis in Mexico City were in the 1950s and 60s. Taxis here have changed colour three times since my first visit. They were green and white, then dark red and gold, and now they’re pink and white. I once asked a taxi driver why this was, and he just said one word: “money.” Here’s a Mexican newspaper’s slideshow of even more of this city’s taxis over the decades.

Minecraft Project Day 9
This is where my cabin’s gonna go.

I needed to flatten up the land a bit and clear out some trees first, though, which took the whole day.

By the end of the day, though, I got my first view of the sunset which will soon be my view every evening.

A decade of sleep

without comments

Well then, a decade. That’s something to be proud of, I guess. My sleep pattern is less erratic than it was a decade ago, and I’m going to bed earlier, waking up earlier, but still I remain a dickhead who does this every morning.

I seriously thought about stopping this year. A decade feels nice and round and neat and tidy. The problem now is that this is just one spoke of a daily routine of making notes about things (what drawings etc. I’ve done, which cap I wore, sports events I attended, the song in my brain when I woke up…) and I would really have to give them all up at the same time to be able to keep going and not regret stopping the sleep chart. So, see you here again in a year.

Nine years of sleep

without comments

This keeps on going. Will it ever stop? Well, I guess this post exactly one year from now would be a good time to stop doing it.

A decade of sleep has a nice ring to it. But, also, wouldn’t it be nice if this kept on going until the day it is no longer updated because I am dead?

Between the poles

Two drawings of the areas between the foul poles at major league stadiums. I kinda like that this combines the idea of an infographic with “art.”

Bandstand

without comments

I’m starting a new ongoing project on the site today. It’s called Bandstand. Hopefully I’ll keep this going until I have done every single band that exists, has existed, and will ever exist. That last sentence is a lie. But I will do a lot more.
