[#1] – The Tree of Sorrows – Not to be confused with The Tree of life. Or Knowledge. Or Ugliness.
[#2] Nature – It hates you. I mean really hates you.
★[#3] Kill the programmers, save the world – Joeys plan to save the world in one fell swoop. Although being the intractable creatures they are it is unlikely they will traverse towards the light enthusiastically and in single file.
[#4] The worst stoic ever – Although probably still a better adherent than Nero… eh… I hope.
[#5] The Gadsen flag – Run up the colors and rally to the banner. Drape me in yellow and mind where you step. A tour d’horizon of the hallowed standard.
[#6] The goggles of Erwin Rommel – From whence they came. Allegedly.
[#7] The Price of Civilization – Civilization feels quite expensive. And its extremely unlikely you’ll ever be able to speak to a manager.
[#8] The Assassination of Inejiro Asanuma – The last person to be assassinated with a sword. (as far as I know)
[#9] Christmas Letter from Iwo Jima – Death is surprisingly quick (for someone so old I mean). Best to be prepared.
[#10] I see the Moon and the Moon sees me – For now anyway.
[#11] Pluto – I miss you. Please come back. We’re sorry.
★[#12] On Death – The eventuality. And less so the skeletal chassis wrapped in a black cowl and wielding a farming implement of questionable hygienic properties.
[#13] Stick-fighting President – “A hit, a very palpable hit”
[#14] Anonymity and the power of celebrity – As actors, it is our responsibility to read the newspapers, and then say what we read on television like it’s our own opinion – Team America
[#15] The Three Deaths – No one is actually dead until the ripples they cause in the world die away – Terry Pratchett
★[#16] Love your anemone – Decrying the lack of a serious nemesis. As one does.
[#630] Things to wear shoes for – Knowing when not to bare feet. And a general lack of consumerist zeal.
[#631] Heaps – More important that you might imagine. Also Snogging.
[#632] Monkey see – As the saying goes. F’ you Mark Manson.
[#633] Going Tribal – Bind us together in love. Cooperation. And the shared experience of hell.
[#634] The Man who planted trees – Feel good animation based on the amazing short-story L’homme qui plantait des arbres
[#635] Saving us – Capitalism steps up to bat. OR If we don’t save the world… who will buy our stuff?
[#636] The God Terrarium – Everything seemed to be going reasonably well… until someone (or something) bumped us off the table.
[#637] How to be Petty – The Edge, of what, he wondered. But couldn’t be bothered to look it up.
[#638] Six hundred and thirty something… – The intersection of Hayek and self-indulgence. But mostly self-indulgence. Consider yourself forewarned.
