Flock on!

April 25, 2008

:p Whatta dumb headline!
Well, I’m testing the Flock browser, specifically the onboard blog editor – literally, as I write this.

Overall, Flock seems pretty cool, based as it is on Firefox, only integrating certain add-ons as core elements. With Flock comes the power to blog anything, directly through the browser interface; being constantly connected to friends and (more likely) virtual acquaintances through the most popular networking services; following their online movements (!) using services like me.dium

While I’m sure some people need instant connectivity to all and any web2.0 service, I would really, really like the ability to turn some of them off in Flock. Like, say, Facebook, YouTube, any ‘media sharing’-services, and the blogging providers I don’t use …

Call me picky, but does anybody have simultaneous Blogger, Blogsome, Live Journal, TypePad, WordPress and Xanga accounts?! Other than the bloggers who, goldfish-like, refuse to learn from the first dotcom bubble and imagine they will become millionaires overnight, just by posting 24/7 about some cleverly angled personal fascination? Sorry, I’m a couple years too old to fit that bill. So, sadly, are some of the aforementioned.

But other than the beautyspot of lacking a customizable interface, Flock is growing nicely on me. Not all the possibilities for extending myself onto the web are superfluous annoyances. Some I’d never heard of, others are being reconsidered now that I have them collected right here in my browser.

<sore conscience>Trouble is, although I am doing this to make my (still under reconstruction) website more interesting and extrovert, the research is taking time I could spend rebuilding it.</sore conscience>

Let’s set a date then, shall we? A deadline of sorts. The grand opening of the newly improved haverholm.com is to be taking place two weeks from now. It’ll be really nice and quiet, since nobody reads this, but what the hell … See ya there!

Mouth for War

March 30, 2008

An excerpt of some lyrics that have followed me since my teens –

 Now a new look in my eyes my spirit rise
Forget the past
Present tense works and lasts
Got shit on
Pissed on
Spit on
Stepped on
Fucked with
Pointed at by lesser men

New life in place of old life
Unscarred by trials

A new level of confidence and power

Which have to be followed by –

 I see you had your mind all made up you group of pitiful liars.
Before I woke to face the day, your master plan transpired.
Something told me – this job had more than meets the eye.
My song is not believed? My words somewhat deceiving?

Now I’m unwhole.

Youve waged a war of nerves
But you cant crush the kingdom
Can’t be what your idols are. Can’t leave the scar.
You cry for compensation.
I ask you please just give us…

5 minutes alone

The first was ‘A new level’, second ‘5 minutes alone’. Both written by Phil Anselmo. They somehow seemed fitting.


You gotta laugh …?

Well,  you have to try, anyways. The site transfer went through today, but it seems I uploaded a bad database or something. Meaning? As far as I can estimate, I have to build the durn thing again from scratch. Read the rest of this entry »


Tomb of the Rabbit King

March 6, 2008

I recently finished up a comic for Danish monthly Free Comics; it’s 13 pages of skeletons, bunny rabbits, evil science and heavy metal. Did I mention it has bunny rabbits? And heavy metal 😉 Read the rest of this entry »


Hello world!

February 17, 2008

This will be my refuge (and yours) while my main site is caught in Limbo between two servers. Just as I am pushing the siteware on the regular Spider-Howl site, so will I be exploring this WordPressthingamajic to fit my purposes – expect things to change around here as I go along.

I won’t tire you with long welcomes or introductions; most of my info is up at the “old”, rather more comprehensive site. Do look in to see what’s been up ’til now, but check back here for news. Also, if you’re in the mood to be annoyed by irrelevant (and propably irrevelatory) comments, follow me on Twitter. Be forewarned, though, I can be a real pain.
