Kluge: A Meditation and other works (warning: Flash). Featuring the eponymous poem, which rewrites itself after you wipe it out with your mouse. The "One Letter At A Time" pieces are mesmerizing in a surreal way. (via Collision Detection, via which see also How Lara Croft Steals Hearts.)

Thirteen writing prompts from McSweeney's. Write a story that ends with the following sentence: Debra brushed the sand from her blouse, took a last, wistful look at the now putrefying horse, and stepped into the hot-air balloon.

State of the (DS) Homebrew from 4colorrebellion makes a pretty convincing case. When I can swing it, I need one of these and one of these so I can track tunes, play some NetHack and run Linux on-the-go. (No, I have no particular reason to want to run Linux on-the-go.) If DSOrganize doesn't suck, I might be able to get rid of my PDA!

Speaking of the DS, check out this awesome Animal Crossing art exhibit! It's in Japan, of course. I wonder how many bells they're asking for that sweet psychedelic K.K. Rider doll.

ITP. I attended the group interview today for admission to ITP. My gut was twisted with anxiety: I was sure I'd be the squarest kid in the room. Turns out everyone else there had at least as many right angles as I do, and some even had sides whose lengths were equaler than mine. I think I distinguished myself with my witty banter - most everyone else was stuck on their dour stories about how being a programmer in the finance industry affords them no opportunity to be "creative." All I want, I said, is to study at a place that will reward me for my relentless dilettantery. Like Douglas Rushkoff, I want to write comic books, have an article in Arthur about the occult, learn to fly, teach an online class about neat yo-yo tricks, etc.

Animal Crossing Wild World. This game is like pure bliss crack cocaine. I never realized before how much I needed to have a sheep send me a cactus in the mail; how I could have even existed before such joy is a mystery unfathomable. S & I spent the whole weekend fishing, transplanting flowers, collecting shells, re-arranging the house, paying off the mortgage and otherwise exploiting this convenient outlet for one's domestic proclivities. (Other games recently enjoyed: Super Mario 64 DS, Final Fantasy I & II on the GBA. Now that I beat FF I finally understand what everyone else was going on about back in the MegaZeux days ...)

Recently discovered songs. Ducktails (Moon Stage) - the Advantage. Soon it will be fire - Richard Youngs (this is the most beautiful song ever written and/or sung). Heartbeats - Jose Gonzales. Anadromous - Mirza (the whole album).

Sumana and Leonard move to town. Last week we all had pierogi and kielbasa in the Village and Leonard took me on a brief yet insightful tour of the sci-fi section at St. Mark's Books. It was fun. I hope we get to do it again soon.
