An eclectic heap of other stuff, not all musical, that I have liked. This heap will gradually grow. There will be many “Easter-egg” secret links on this page, so happy clicking.

The highly atmospheric and now defunct Shankaboot that showed a brave and hopeful side to the beautiful city and people of Beirut Lebanon.

Heath Bunting‘s cybercafe was almost where I started online in the early days of cyberspace, although I do go back a wee bit before even his wonderful creations as I was first online in 1978 – yep even before PC’s, when the “screen” was a teletype and data was on paper tape and a modem had two rubber cups you jammed your rotary dial handset into that would chirp along in x-modem protocol at 75 bits per second. Yes bits, not megabits or gigabits, just plain bits (Baud).

Moss gathers not on a rolling stone, and this stone, thanks to it’s square belt like some Picasso-esque Saturn, is rolling nowhere and has the moss to prove it.

The Evoluon film featured on the BBC2 (UK TV channel) test transmissions when that channel first launched. As a child I though it was one of the funkiest things on TV. Here is that movie.

I really appreciate good design (its part of my job). Here’s a lovely designed web page about some designers called AEI that create lovely things. Top marks to both their webster and to them for the products they create. http://en.aeilatam.com/products#
