The secret Babylon 5 project animated movie

J. Michael Straczynski.

I'm ridiculously excited about the #B5AnimatedMovie because it feels the most B5-ish of anything we've done since the original show. Warners was terrific in giving me the freedom to write the story I wanted, and the animation is phenomenal. It's fun, deep, emotional, classic B5.

Exciting news!

To celebrate the MF DOOM X Tatsuro Yamashita EP reaching the milestone of 1 million views on Youtube, I’ve put together this Special Edition release.

Panic enters the Mastodon arena

Very pleased to see Panic (of Tweetbot fame) make a worthy successor for Mastodon. Priced at $2 per month or $15 for a year.

I picked up a copy last night. Mastodon as an ecosystem is still difficult to get started with, and the initial onboarding is a headfuck - once you follow a few people it starts feeling like the bird site of old.

Edit: I should note Panic have done a good job of cleaning up that initial onboarding/sign up experience.

Adobe is collecting all of its customers' pictures into a machine learning training set.

From Baldur:

Turns out that Adobe is collecting all of its customers' pictures into a machine learning training set. This is opt-out, not opt-in so if you use Lightroom, for example, it defaults to adding all of your photos to the set. If these are unpublished pictures, work-in-progress, etc. they'll still be analysed as soon as they're synced. I've been using Lightroom to sync photos from my Windows desktop to my iPad. Now I need to reconsider that.

Adobe continues to behave like a creep. They are one pitch meeting away from minting your work as a NFT.

Gluten Free Weed Edibles



  1. Let weed oil come to room temperature - this will make it easier to blend thoroughly with the rest of the mixture.
  2. Finely chop the dried fruit
  3. Thoroughly combine oats, peanut butter, dried fruit, weed oil, honey and spices in a bowl.
  4. Allow to stand for 10mins to let the oats soak up some of the moisture and make the mixture easier to roll into balls.
  5. Roll into ping-pong sized balls and place in the fridge for an hour to set. The mixture isn't as sticky as it seems.


I prefer these to making brownies: much less sugar, no baking, and they can be done in one bowl. Spices can be switched to whatever you fancy.
