Writing: May 2018

  1. ‘The Actor’s Art and Craft’ by William Esper and Damon DiMarco

    My notes on the book that recounts a year’s worth of Esper teaching his variation of the Meisner acting technique.

  2. w/e 28 May 2018

    David Byrne’s ‘How Music Works’, Ben Moor’s ‘Pronoun Trouble’, and ‘The Split’.

  3. w/e 20 May 2018

    ‘Uncharted’ 1; Elmore Leonard’s ‘Glitz’; Chamberlin, Powell and Bon; and ‘Silicon Valley’ season three.

  4. Invalidating items from Django’s cache

    I poked around at Django’s per-site and per-view caching to work out why I couldn’t invalidate pages from the cache. I eventually worked out how to do it.

  5. f/e 13 May 2018

    ‘Fortitude’ season two, 1980s ‘Top of the Pops’, and reading Iain M. Banks’ ‘Consider Phlebas’.

  6. A kind of modern desperation

    On whether writing weeknotes could help me get back into more frequent blogging again. (Answer: they didn’t, quite.)

  7. Exploring City of London Councillors data

    I scraped data about the City of London’s councillors, and their interests and gifts, and made a site to browse and search it using Datasette.

  8. A nice picture

    On liking images that are broken, Pure CSS Francine, and Afghan war rugs.
