Good morning

without comments

Found this in a deep folder yesterday. Apparently, this Adobe ImageReady GIF was created on 3 August, 2004. I have no memory of making it. I have a vague memory of that kinda big-block-head figure, but the animation itself: nothing.

Mexico City

without comments

“Look there! An eagle eating a snake on top of a cactus! Let us build our city here,” said a man.

“And in around 700 years, give or take, we shall hear a song called I Gotta Feeling and we shall never ever stop listening to it,” said another man.

Fuck the rainbow

without comments

This is how the above animation came to be:

I was listening to Jon Spencer Blues Explosion’s song “Orange” and I thought it might be nice to have all the words of the rainbow chopped together with a very simple animation of coloured circles.

I searched my music for songs with colours in the title, and didn’t really do much more.

Later in the day, I was drawing the circles and listening to the Pogues album Rum, Sodomy and the Lash. As always happens after track four, the fifth track was “A Pair of Brown Eyes.” It seemed a shame to not have brown in the rainbow animation. And it was amusing to me to think that brown would be pissed off with the rainbow colours.

I opened Wikipedia and had a look at some pages about colour and came across a page about a book called “Basic Color Terms: Their Universality and Evolution” by Brent Berlin and Paul Kay, which lead me to a page about basic colour terms, and that some of the most basic colour terms aren’t named in the rainbow colours. That sealed the deal, really.

The original idea would, it turned out, only be a title sequence for something about the colours not in the rainbow.

10th anniversary

without comments

If I were really committed, I’d get this made up into a sleeve patch, like on sports uniforms, and have this sewn onto all of my clothes for the year. But I’m not, so for now, it’s just gonna be an image on my little part of the Internet.

Ringkøbing Zoo

without comments

New thing! About a zoo! Possibly of interest to children! (I have no children, so I don’t really know what they like, aside from sweets and jokes about poo.) Anyway, it’s called Ringkøbing Zoo, mostly I like town names with the Scandinavian slashy-O thing.

That’s the first frame of the story above, the rest can be seen here.

Six years of sleep

with one comment

I’ve been keeping track of my sleep for six years now. I’ve contemplated stopping doing this quite a lot this past year (and previous years), but still I carry on. It’s ridiculous thing to do every morning. But then, so is keeping track of which cap I put on every day.
