Blogger's time is six minutes ahead of mine.
By that I mean--in a brand new post the default timestamp at the bottom says 9:06 and my menubar says 9:00--my menubar is synced to tick.usno.navy.mil, and network latency isn't an issue--syncing with time.apple.com no different. This didn't use to be the case.
Side note: When you type time.apple.com into a browser it times out. Why isn't there something there? Why the fuck doesn't Apple have a nice clean page with just a big, elegant, ajax-rendered clock (synced with their servers of course) running 24/7? Make that an alarm clock. Something pretty much just like this (or this), only Ivefied. Wouldn't that be nice (I mean generous)?
Side note: I love that both articles about online clocks I've read lately (Gizmodo, Gizmodo) feature a screencap displaying the time 4:20. I love how often you see it snuck into print (read the ads close on Sundays) or TV (The Simpsons especially). Lost in Translation opens on a clock reading it.

I first saw it at twelve or thirteen, sitting on a friend's living room floor behind a pizza soaked box (the first time I had had peppers on pizza). Ever since and often, I use this model--a violently expanding spherical absence--to describe ideas of a wide sort. On anxious days I employ it too, to level blocks behind me in step with a beat.

None of the classicism of the first, could be Heather and I. Like that they cling to empty signifiers, could be anything.

Yeah, even though I say "on my knuckles, MAKE WORK".
