It’s about that time of year where I check in with my mirror dance progress by dancing to the same music that was in my first videos.

2020 original (bad audio): 

2020 director’s cut: 

Last year’s:

At first I wasn’t sure what to think about this dance, but now that I’ve just given these videos my undivided attention, while sitting comfortably in the bath with my new bath shelf, and using some nice new headphones I was given for Christmas, I will indeed say that that the dance has its quality moments.

Also, in exchange for a free battery, I will also say that the particular Bomaker “CA-Dolphin Ⅰ” headphones I just watched the video with were worth doing business with, given that I don’t know anything about how they were made. I really would like to believe the company is wholesome, but in this matter I haven’t got a clue as to how I could actually learn something about the company “Bomaker“.

This kind of endorsement uncertainty reminds me of a website I developed about a decade ago: The success of a product submitted to this site was based on a combination vote_count and a green_score to rank products similar to something like Reddit. Individuals were incentivized to submit good products because they could include their affiliate id in the url, and publishers could serve a feed of popular items in their banners, swapping in their own affiliate codes in the product feed:

I recently managed to misplace all the code from GreenAds but that’s okay since it was garbage code anyway. The project that motivated GreenAds was, and there’s a bit more information about both projects at this Patreon I’ve been trying to work on when I have time:

As we all know, I perform an absolutely invaluable service by my looking into things. I don’t ask for much in return; but I do occasionally plug worthwhile products in the hopes of making a little pocket money from my endeavours. Today I ask my loyal audience to consider buying some of my award winning photographs as they are on sale through Fine Art America.

Just think, on Dec 3, you could purchase this beautiful piece as a tapestry to work under at your open plan office desk, for 25% off!

For the full list of sale items and the dates they go on sale, I refer to you this schedule:


A few months ago I said I would do a computer accessory inventory affiliate post:

The following products are a more general assortment, but I enjoyed them (the headphones are similarish to what I did buy) enough this year to endorse them a bit. Also, I’m trying to use a plugin from to geo-detect the right Amazon affiliate links to use, but it’s not quite working, as it’s just using the .com. If you’re from Canada, click this, before looking for the products on, so that I can make money off you.

I wanted to do this through GreenAds but I need to fix a few things on that site before I can.

You can see a number of interesting patterns in the shower curtain.
