    Music video based on the Eschaton tennis scene from David Foster Wallace’s novel ‘Infinite Jest’. Totally. Awe. Some. My insides have been touched all over.

    @plsj It wasn’t as bad as I expected after your build-up! I wonder how/if that would work in London... more swearing maybe.

    Does anyone refer to Docklands as Heseltown? They should. Heseltown.

    OK, everyone! Popular vote only counts for a bit of the SXSW panel decision. Doesn’t make the pleading for votes less annoying and cheap.

    @MetaGrrrl Yes, but it doesn't stop the pleading for votes feeling cheap and making me dislike SXSW and my friends.

    It’s times like this I wish I’d chosen a more apocalypse-compatible profession. Like a guy who makes sheep or however farming works.
