    On Kicks Condor and Robot Wisdom.

    Five things from an overnight shoot for a short film.

  5. Blogroll

    I added a blogroll to my site, because there are lots of nice blogs out there.

  10. Media from April 2019

    Some things I’ve seen, read, heard and been to in April.

    Code is a very simple medium, nothing but plain text. But the applications for writing it are so complicated and never quite right.

    A few things I watched, read, etc. in February that I didn’t get around to writing about sooner.

    The tenth annual The Story conference was as good as ever, with Alison S. M. Kobayashi and Sara Wajid giving my favourite talks.

    A quote about breaking out of a well-worn rut, by Benny Golson.

  21. At the gym

    Two gym thoughts.

  22. ‘Olive Kitteridge’

    We watched the miniseries. Recommended, but a bit hard going.

  23. The late style or elder game of blogging

    Wondering about the “elder game” and “late style” of blogging, and how weeknotes, as a phase of blogging, might fit in.
