Seen on Language Log. There’s a movie called Exit Through the Gift Shop — about street art disasters, mostly not relevant to my interests. However, the tagline is:

Searching for Truth in a Wild Blue Yonder

January 14, 2010

I heartily recommend the short story Searching for Truth in a Wild Blue Yonder, published the other day on Tor.com. Four pages. Ten minutes of reading, fifteen max. You won’t regret it.

Ten years after my parents died, my therabot, Bob, informed me that I should seek help elsewhere. I blinked at his suggestion.

"I’ve already tried chemical intervention," I told his plastic grin. "It didn’t work." I scowled, but that did nothing to de-brighten his soothing, chipper voice.

Seen on True Chip Till Death: Shnabubula covers Bit Shifter’s "Reformat the Planet" on piano.

Normally I don’t care much for covers, nor for analog instruments covering digital songs, but this is really good.
