What the World Really Needs Now: YouTubeocalypse Meets Blogocalypse Carnival

Yup, it's official! Mostly Harmless will be hosting the Blogocalypse Carnival on April Fool's Day 2007! So start those keyboards and send your links to the[underscore]constructivist18[at]yahoo[dot]com no later than the morning of Saturday, March 31. Anything that combines bloggy with apocalypsy matters will at least be considered. Apologies for the short notice, but hosting arrangements had to be worked out with a certain Party's higher-ups, and you know what they say about the wheels of Justice.

On a lighter note, here's a cheery clip (with ninjas!) that always brightens the spirits of the Constructivist household whenever we catch it on Japanese kids' tv in the morning or afternoon. Consider it inspiration for your blogocalyptic efforts, if not as The Official Dance of the End Times:

Cheery indeed! Ninjas indeed!! The Algorithm March puts the algo back into formal posture-perfect walking. (That sounded different in my head.)

All go?

Sadly, "rithm" was the intended target. Those things in one's head that spark about and eventually make words saw it perfectly. Rendered in actual language, the connection disappeared. Likely because "rithm" in algorithm has nothing to do with "rhythm" and everything to do with a coincidence of Arabic sound and English phonetics.

None of which is as fun as the Algorithm March. The part with ninjas is much like how I visualized my first Fortran program extracting primes from integers. Good times.

I told the tsuma it was "All Go in Rhythm." She told me I'm an idiot. Right again!

Ah, to make up for my idiocy, here's another ninja!
