Topics I've Started

  1. Stoicism For Fun And Profit

    Posted 4 Jan 2019

    Over the last couple of years I've really gotten into Stoicism as a personal philosophy/way of life.

    No man is free who is not master of himself

    I started with Marcus Aurelius then worked my way through Epictetus and Seneca. It's a simple philosophy that largely speaks of accepting things the way they are, rather than wishing they were any other way. Generally helps with work, and home life, and accepting and dealing with challenging situations.

    I know Kretil is an advocate, anyone else found a use in Stoicism?
  2. Podcast Recommendations

    Posted 2 Jan 2019

    I do love podcasts, I listen to them on the drive to and from work most days.

    Here are some of my favourites:

    • Last Podcast on the Left (crime, cryptids, UFOs, cults)
    • Criminal (true crime)
    • The Trail Went Cold (unsolved cold cases)
    • S Town (hard to describe but amazing)
    • Dirty John (again, just listen to it)
    • Serial (series 1 and 3)
  3. Anything Missing?

    Posted 1 Jan 2019

    Since I've recently reawakened my nascent coding abilities (out of date though they are), and I want to increase interaction with the front page, is there anything you'd like it to do that it currently doesn't?

    For example, you can submit an article, it gets authed by a site admin and it appears.
    There's article comments.
    There's a whizzy chatboard.
    There's various useful links and feeds from the forum.

    Is there anything else that you would find useful? I can likely make it if so.
  4. Skeets - A Film I Wrote And Acted In

    Posted 1 Jan 2019

    Check it out, homeboys and flygirls:

    I wrote this, acted in it and composed the music. Hope you enjoy it.
  5. Your New Year's Eve

    Posted 31 Dec 2018

    I'm very boring.

    For the past decade or so I've stayed in on NYE, and for the past few years have developed a new ritual with my wife of attempting to watch a trilogy of films over the course of the evening.

    In recent years, we've done Indiana Jones and Back to the Future, for example.

    Tonight, it's the Matrix trilogy, which I haven't watched since they first came out - I wonder how they're going to hold up. I suspect not well.

    Also, spoiler alert - I'll fall asleep mid way through the second one and we'll have to finish the session tomorrow night.

    What about you, what does your NYE look like?

    Controversially, this user rarely if ever incorporates the words "Ah'm bloody mithered, me", "'appen that's as like as not" and "i'n't in tin" in major song lyrics.
