Current inspirations. An old school linkblog.


  • Novelist as a Vocation – Haruki Murakami
    • I’m a sucker for writers talking about writing.
  • Tomorrow And Tomorrow And Tomorrow – Gabrielle Zevin
    • Got me to call an old friend that I hadn’t spoken to in too long.
  • Tell The Machine Goodnight – Katie Williams
    • Speculative design as novel.


These three are really making me want to make a film.

  • Jeanne Dielman, 23, quai du Commerce, 1080 Bruxelles – Chantal Akerman
    • The new number 1 on the British Film Institute’s 2022 Greatest Films of All Time list.
    • This film was equally frustrating, boring, and mesmerizing. It was totally worth sticking with it for 3 hours and 21 minutes but I probably don’t need to watch it again.
  • The Fabelmans – Steven Spielberg
    • I love to see what inspires others. Judd Hirsch could win an Oscar for his scene – I want to watch it on repeat.
  • Leonor Will Never Die – Martika Ramirez Escobar
    • This belongs to my favorite movie genre – what-is-even-real-meta-weirdness (future zine topic).
    • I never been to, seen or read anything from the Philippines so it was fascinating just on that level.


  • 1899 (on Netflix)
    • From the creators of Dark. I long to make puzzles like this.
  • The Peripheral (on Prime Video)
    • Based on the book by William Gibson. They changed a lot of things for the show and I think it works.


  • Nathalie Lawhead wrote about GDevelop – an open source, no-code game making app.
  • Jag Talon made a HyperCard zine about using old tech.
  • Play The Oregon Trail on an old Mac.


This is what’s keeping me going
