This is just some stuff I like that you may also like.

Mandatory Reading

Icarus Laughed


A poem by we are also boats. I love this poem, smile as you burn and it resonants with me so much.

Teach Yourself Programming in Ten Years


An article by Peter Norvig. This really taught me to think long term and it freed from the desire to learning everything as fast as possible.

Get your work recognized: write a brag document


An article by Julia Evans. I followed this advice before but stopped now. I still think its a great thing to do.

Hack everything without fear


A blog post by Drew DeVault. Probably my favourite article because the idea of just hacking on anything and everything is brilliant. I didn't need permission but just reading this pushed me to go deeper than I have ever gone.

How To Become A Hacker


An article by Eric S Raymond. This was the original document I read at 13 that made me learn python. I think this article really gets at what it means to be a hacker.


Sonny Boy


I absolutely love this anime and I think whatever genre this is is wonderful. It's madly surreal and would reccomend watching the first episode. If it doesn't hook you then you can drop it.


Infinity Train


A show about a magical train and dealing with your problems. The first 3 season ares so frikken good. I love it.


Death of Stalin


A black comedy about the death of stalin and the fallout immediately. So funny and one of my 10/10 movies.



One of my favourite movies and a great watch. The time loop stuff is amazing. Anything Nolan honestly. interstellar is also one of my favourite movies.



One of the best horror movies. Absolute must watch. Anything by Ari Aster is great, Midsommar and Beau is Afraid are so good.


There Is No Antimemetics Division


Heady and so cool. The idea that just by thinking something it can break is insane. It goes off a bit at the end but the leading up to the end is great.

I'm a Search and Rescue Officer for the US Forest Service, I have some stories to tell


A reddit nosleep post that I consider one of the best horror writing. The idea of staircases just in the forest is so terrifying.

The Bastard Operator From Hell


I loved this series and is probably why I'm so interest in sysadmin stuff now.
