Posted an animation that took hours today. So far the response is underwhelming.

Here's one of them:

Was the original intention of the film to have Sweet Transvestite start out like that, but they didn't over budget trouble.

Still working for a while... I'm often exhausted and had a migraine yesterday. And in mourning for one of my heroes Stephen Hawking.
In other news my father was sent an article in a Dutch science magazine about recent research claiming to have pinned down migraine to a vitamin deficiency: specifically of vitamins B2, D3, folate and Q10. In female patients it would often be related to Q10 deficiency and in male patients to vitamin D deficiency. So I've turned to supplements - little to lose and a lot to gain.

Still, Poly, I have a hard time believing that you down there in Australia would have a D3 deficiency. Although vitamin D deficiency is so common in The Netherlands to the extent that the government advises all people under 4, pregnant or nursing women, senior citizens and people of colour to take supplements.

Today, 15 March 2018, we installed a new lamp in the 70s light fixture. It's an expensive type of which I can't find the English name, but it has a pleasant light. We keep on trying to keep track of how long they last, but the data failed in the last few years.

I was diagnosed with a Vitamin D deficiency a couple of years back and have been taking a supplement daily ever since. This certainly hasn't reduced the number of migraines I get - maybe the severity - it's not clear. I'd not heard of Q10 before. Apparently it's not a vitamin but a coenzyme.

True. It's hard to find too: only in beef, fish, and to a lesser extent in avocado. Dad's already anticipating eating beef liver. Yegh.

Just got back from visiting BF.
There's an annual week to promote Dutch book sales, it's a big thing every year. Most noticeable to the common audiences is there is one short book written by a prominent author that's given away for free when you purchase over 15 euros worth in Dutch-language books. Now that the Dutch Railways are the main sponsor, they allow you to travel for free with this book on the last Sunday of the week.
So that's how come I spent a weekend at BF, a day of free train travel is too good to lose out on. This year's free book was nothing to write home about, BTW.

One other action I saw this year is notable author (until he was found guilty of plagiarism) Adriaan van Dis, he used to host a TV show where he interviewed other authors. A few days ago they revived it for a day, and it resulted in a wonderful interview with Stephen Fry. Here's a fragment:

Fry really is an interesting person. I should delve a little more in his stuff.

And, Bonny, beef liver is excellent.

I'm reading his first book "The Liar" now. I'm not going to pretend I understand it yet, but I can be completely honest about it being occasionally disgusting.

Have you finished it yet? I read it about 2 years ago and found it quite brilliant. Smart and funny, kind of reminded me of David Foster Wallace in some ways. (Infinite Jest is still a "read once every year" novel for me.)

Hope your migraines are better! I used to get them too, but they mysteriously disappeared over the years. Doctors can't explain it.

Get well soon, Bonny. I spent most of the day working in the rain to try to gain time cause my boss completely fuck up his estimate, and now we have to run to compensate for his mistakes.
