This song came on randomly from a music streaming service I was using then I scrolled past this gif and it worked too perfectly not to share.

"    I never used to realize it, I guess. I try and play it along and just not make trouble for people. Probably I never would have had any trouble at all if I hadn’t run into Brett when they shipped me to England. I suppose she only wanted what she couldn’t have. Well, people were that way. To hell with people. The Catholic Church had an awfully good way of handling all that. Good advice, anyway. Not to think about it. Oh, it was swell advice. Try and take it sometime. Try and take it.

    I lay awake thinking and my mind jumping around. Then I couldn’t keep away from it, and I started to think about Brett and all the rest of it went away. I was thinking about Brett and my mind stopped jumping around and started to go in sort of smooth waves. Then all of a sudden I started to cry. Then after a while it was better and I lay in bed and listened to the heavy trams go by and way down the street, and then I went to sleep.”

- The Sun Also Rises, Ernest Hemingway

I saw this painting it struck me like a memory. I thought it must’ve been in a movie or something I had seen. Initially thinking Hitchcock, I looked up Psycho and The Birds but I realized that wasn’t it. Then I remembered a man and a woman in trouble in a desert and through a series of weird Google searches I came upon a Huffington Post article about killers and cars in old movies. The article included the movie I had in mind called Detour (1945 dir. Edgar G. Ulmer.) Then I found out it was in the public domain and on Archive.org. After skimming through the gas station was only shown for a few seconds. Then I thought it might be Rebel Without a Cause but after watching some clips I realized that connection was just because James Dean was wearing a red jacket in that vibrant early colour film stock. After that I got stuck watching switchblades-in-movies compilations on Youtube. Even though my curiosity and compulsion to track down information has served me in the past, sometimes it is just a nuisance enabled by the internet.Even though it is useless and I know it makes no difference, I still want to find out. It is like an itch that I can’t scratch.Even though I like this painting, now I’m not sure I’ll be able to look at it without being put into fits.  Am I a compulsive learner?

I’ve become suspicious of a certain type of conversation in which questions/solutions/ideas/possibilities are cut off because a complex issue is reduce or posed as a simple dichotomy. It seems to be a form of control or a premature denial of imagination.

Secret Messaging service found in Google Translate

Security researchers have discovered that strange variations of latin words from the Cicero ‘Lorem Ipsum’ text translate into totally unexpected sentences using Google Translate. Google have now hard-coded the algorithm NOT to translate the words Lorem and Ipsum, but from my tests you can still create secret messages using other Latin words. Suspiciously a lot of the variations produce sentences with the words - China, Russia, Network, NATO, and so on. Since Google translation algorithms learn autonomously through Machine Learning the researchers believe that someone has gamed the system to make it learn this instead. I guess they may have done this by surreptitiously feeding Google with latin/secret language texts.

I love this moment. You’ve been playing for hours and trying to get to Mexico for so long and finally you get there and this song starts to play and John Marston is riding his horse along side that river. I finished the mission just as the sun was setting like in this video and I just slowed the horse down and walked slowly letting the whole scene wash over me.
