Best advice for creatives I've heard in a long time:

"Surround yourself with people who think in terms of how things can be done instead of can't be done."

If you make videogames/things like them, today is the last day to submit for a place in Leftfield at Rezzed this March.

Doesn't matter how rough or small your thing is, weird things encouraged.

If you're selected with a PC thing you don't even have to attend as long as you can send me a build for the show. I wanna see your things:

I like Mastodon.

No one listens to me, and I can see what's actually happening around the world.

streaming is really interesting to me: Watching over someone's shoulder as they play a video game seems moderately indulgent, offering a taste of tantalizing taboo without the risk of something life-and-limb dangerous.

Did you make a resolution for 2020?

to all!

May your decade be filled with great words that transport you to only the best places.

"Wander the garden of prose with me, my friend, and let us live ten thousand lifetimes together."

Experiencing a song, book, or film from the other side is quite the experience.

Changes by Bowie came out when I was a toddler; now post middle-age, I still agree with its sentiments:

And these children that you spit on
As they try to change their worlds
Are immune to your consultations
They're quite aware of what they're going through
Don't tell them to grow up and out of it
Where's your shame
You've left us up to our necks in it
Time may change me
But you can't trace time.

What's on my mind?


I have faith in radicalized humane being despite the anti-intellectual movement.

I have faith in creators, people who add to the world instead of criticize and consume.

I have faith in leaning into evolving and growing and changing and freaking the norms over it because evolving, growing, and changing over our lifetimes is sane.

But that's just me.

I am so thrilled to be here, and I look forward to boosting creators and encouraging creative endeavours.
