I read an article today that absolutely fascinated me: A smart watch that runs on body heat. Totally. I kid you not. The heat produced by your body, and escaping through your skin, assuming you are a normal, warm-blooded being, is enough to run a very sophisticated smart watch. AND... store enough energy in the … Continue reading And Gutenberg Lived Here: Of Invisible Watches, Body Heat, And The Real Dr Who

And Gutenberg Lived Here: Free Will
Yes, please. Free him. Shakespeare, I mean. I am so tired of seeing form, content, beauty of the Welsh language, (there have been studies for years about the Welsh flow of his language, Welsh like the place and the language, not the other meaning of Welsh, ie strange, foreign, occult) being reproduced with actors on … Continue reading And Gutenberg Lived Here: Free Will
And Gutenberg Lived Here: Did Someone Feed The Dog?
There are very few more horrific sounds than the slurp of a dog chomping on something. Depending on the breed, and the size, and the boredom level, that chomp could be: a piece of a curtain- you will find the rest of it wrapped as a blanket around and across, the dog's rug, or bed. … Continue reading And Gutenberg Lived Here: Did Someone Feed The Dog?

And Gutenberg Lived Here: Of Donald, The Germans, And Angie.
Wednesday morning Central European Time, I woke to find a not finished US election, a huge uproar "will he, won't he, will he, won't he," CNN talking and talking and talking, the German news explaining and explaining, and explaining, or, well, ....not explaining. And all from the politician's understanding of politics. ie what was good … Continue reading And Gutenberg Lived Here: Of Donald, The Germans, And Angie.
Why Make A Movie With Cumberbatch If He’s Not Allowed To Act?
(Spoiler alert: if you go to this movie, your evening will be spoilt) Last Tuesday night we went to the movies: Dr Strange, starring two, in my opinion, absolutely brilliant actors, Benedict Cumberbatch, and Tilda Swinton. You could have done swan lake with plastic swans on sticks for all the acting they were allowed to … Continue reading Why Make A Movie With Cumberbatch If He’s Not Allowed To Act?
