Comments I've posted on other sites

  1. My London Life - Saturday, August 12, 2006

    “[I] find myself, for instance, if I’ve posted something about work (rehearsals, say) not referring…


  1. Mocking Music: NME C86: Side B

    This makes me very happy. MP3s of all tracks on the NME’s C86 tape. I only started listening to jangly indie stuff a year or two later, so this is nearly all new to me. Twenty years, blimey.

  2. Gregarius » A Free, Web-based Feed Aggregator

    Nice-looking, install-it-yourself, personal Bloglines (only less ugly).

  3. The New York Review of Books: Cosmopolitans

    Ethics, identity, violence, justice. “Why do we succumb so readily to appeals based on the irrational forms of identity — ethnic, racial, religious — rather than to appeals based on the rational forms — economic above all?”

  4. Corunet. El blog » The definitive heatmap

    How to make your own clickmap thing using Javascript, Ruby, ImageMagick. (via Kottke)

  5. 55 word stories

    Some lovely stories here, conveniently short and ideally suited to the short-haul commuter or the busy housewife. (via Said the Gramophone)

  6. Analog audio tape cassette nostalgia -

    Pictures of tapes. There used to be a huge Japanese page that had all the pictures on one page, but that’s gone and this is more convenient. How quaint. (via City of Sound)

  7. Phil Gyford’s blog

    I’ve been trying Vox out and have posted a few things there recently. Not sure I’ll continue though - one weblog’s more than enough.

  8. :: View topic - milton court

    Building Design article about the proposed replacement of the Barbican’s Milton Court building (“43 storey residential tower”!), and the resistance to the plans.

  9. Roger Federer as Religious Experience - Tennis - New York Times

    I have no interest in sport but David Foster Wallace always makes tennis fascinating. Not that I’ve got round to reading this yet. (via Kottke)

  10. Flickr: Archive of Strand Building Hackney’s photos posted to Flickr on 16th July 2006

    The Strand Building, where I used to live, has finally had its central courtyard remodelled (necessary due to leakage into the garage below). Beautifully done, although the fountain looks odd.

  11. LRB | David Edgar : Stalking Out

    Review of a John Osborne biography with lots of interesting history about 1950s/60s London theatre, especially ‘Look Back in Anger’, Stratford East, and the Royal Court, and whether theatre was shaken up or not.

  12. LRB | E.S. Turner : Catchers in the Rye

    Interesting article about the history of animal and human traps (subscribers only).

  13. Google Maps + Google Video + Mashup - Claude Lelouch’s Rendezvous

    Fantastic idea, although it stutters horribly and becomes very out of sync for me.

  14. YouTube - The Mountain Goats - Woke Up New

    Nice video for the new, lovely, Mountain Goats single.
