Welcome to our world, welcome to our world, welcome to our world of toys....
Greetings and hi everybody! Welcome to the American edition of yet of my home page. I left the UK over a year ago now, and it's about time I've updated this. I've all kindsa of nifty new plans for this.
You will not see the words "cool" or "cyber" anywhere on this site unless they are quoted or used in the proper context.
This is all the stuff that I like enuf to have written whole sets of web pages about. You might like it as well. Or not. If anything confuses you, please read the disclaimer / help page. Be sure to read the FAQ before emailing me about anything. I tend to get get a bit more pissy about things these days. You may also want to check out the list of what's new if you want to know about any important changes.
An excellent source of vitamin C
Once upon a time there was a lesser-known comic called
Tank Girl. It was
the story of girl who drove a tank, outwitted the devil, and shagged kangaroos.
a bloody brilliant piece of work until H&M just got bored and let anyone
who could hold a pen write the stories.
But there are those of us out there who still remember how farking
novel the whole idea was. If you are one of those, or just want to know
more, check out the original Tank Girl web site.
Besides, this site probably has more information about Tank Girl than any other place on the internet and it's
been rated one of the top 5% of all the internet sites by some people
who do that sort of thing. Like that bloody matters, but I think it's good.
All kind of things of interest to the
gothic subculture. Including info on clothes, entertainment, net.goth stuffs, and random other stuff.
This contain mostly my academic / professional /
mad science interests. Mostly things related to my PhD in wearable
input devices, tho there's a bit of other stuff. It's a bit dry
compared to the rest of this site. But it's got lots of detailed info, including the full text of my thesis.
This is pretty much everything else. Mostly random articles I wrote or found, and other assorted stuff.
If you've ever been to America, you might know how absolutely
everything is open 24 hours a day?
Well, in London, it's just not like that. Things close so
damned early. It's so hard to get food at 3am when you're
bored / going home / whatever.
So, if you care, read the rantings of
an American trying to find a 24 hour diner in London.
The Great Classic Coke Conspiracy.
A story of greed and corruption in mass marketing.
I think it's a really neat waste of time. And the best thing is that it can be customised. I've made a list of customised versions of
Doom I would like
to have, but will probably never get made.
