Miegakure turns time into a physical space.
‘Love Love Love’ by The Mountain Goats is my new jam.
Today marks the 143rd anniversary of the Great Chicago Fire, where over 3.3 square miles of the city burned, leaving more than 300 people dead and over 100,000 people homeless.
Despite being, at the time, one of the worst natural distasters in US history, the will and spirit of the people of Chicago prevailed. By some accounts, ships bearing lumber to rebuild the city were already entering the mouth of the river as the embers were still smoldering three days later.
The first image shows the city before the fire and the second shows the conflagration spread from 157 DeKoven St, north to North Ave.
The third photo is a very detailed image of what we now call the Loop, taken from Franklin between Lake and Randolph, looking east, in the days after the fire. Note that rebuilding had already begun.

I started a #INeedDiverseGames hashtag over on twitter. Go on, add some tweets. Please? You can track the tag here.
I am thinkingof making a tumblr as well, good idea y/y?
Ok so I made the tumblr too.
Submit why you need diverse games!
NBA 2K15 makes use of the Playstation camera for PS4 to allow gamers to scan their faces and become a character in the game. The feature uses face detection algorithms that often fail to identify the features of the face correctly creating monstrous glitches. I’m considering buying this game now just to make glitch portraiture. Images found on Twitter.
This is what happens when you try to enter the Matrix.

"Because I’m an old fool who’s so cool."
‘Talking’ by Descendents is my new jam.
playlist I made entitled “A Brief History of the Mountain Goats.” It’s a three-volume extravaganza that can serve as, I hope, a pretty good introduction to tMG, or as a way of broadening one’s tMG horizons, or just as a slightly obsessive labor of love for one of the most important bands in my life.
I made a little permanent page for it that you can access anytime from the navigation bar at the top of this site.
NOTE: this is just the playlist, not the tracks themselves, but I’m pretty proud of it and it should at least give you a place to start. More info on the page itself!
