Kenji Siratori

emoticon:cyberpunk So it looks like Cyberpunk isn't dead after all. Wink

I've just come across another new Cyberpunk writer [1]. Apparently Kenji Siratori is a :

Japanese cyberpunk writer who is currently bombarding the internet with wave upon wave of highly experimental, uncompromising, progressive, intense prose. His is a writing style that not only breaks with tradition, it severs all cords, and can only really be compared to the kind of experimental writing techniques employed by the Surrealists, William Burroughs and Antonin Artaud. Embracing the image mayhem of the digital age, his relentless prose is nonsensical and extreme, avant-garde and confused, with precedence given to twisted imagery, pace and experimentation over linear narrative and character development. With unparalleled stylistic terrorism, he unleashes his literary attack. An unprovoked assault on the senses. Blood Electric (Creation Books) was acclaimed by David Bowie.

Now I'm a great fan of the beat authors - so this is quite some claim. I have a digital copy of to read, so I'll let you know what I think. Very Happy

[1]New to me at least, it looks like he's written quite a collection of books already.

Hair Care

emoticon:file1 Ok, so I feel slightly silly making this blog entry. Embarassed

I have nice long hair, and am determined to enjoy it before I go bald. [1] There's a slight chance this information will be useful to someone else, so I'm going to post and be damned.

For a long time I tried hundreds of commercial shampoos and conditioners - to try and find any that didn't leave my hair feeling dried out. No luck...

Eventually a friend (who is a hairdresser) pointed me to almond oil. It's a light oil often used for massage. You can buy it from health food shops in one litre bottles. I'm sure I could get it cheaper (I currently pay about fifteen quid for a bottle), but a bottle lasts me around six months [2].

I wash my hair most days, and never use commercial products now. The almond oil prevents my hair from drying out much better than any conditioner ever has ! Very Happy

Dry hair problem solved ! [3]

[1]My Dad is pretty bald, and my maternal grandfather had a head as smooth as a snooker ball.
[2]This will be a good benchmark. Next time I buy a bottle I can check against the date of this post.
[3]Seemingly superfluous comment added for the sake of google. I hate writing content for search engines. Sad

The Old Blog Archives

There was so much ancient wisdom distilled into my old blog, that I couldn't let it just creep ignominiously into the pages of cyber-history. More to the point I'm still getting some hits from google with the old entries. Here are the archives of my previous Blogger based blog.
