thirty million

Something interesting is happening. A few days ago, I noticed an uptick in the comments I received on YouTube. The weird beard video was bringing in more views than usual, and, judging from the comments, many of them were due to YouTube’s internal recommendations: someone would be watching something, and then the system would automatically […]

The Longest Prints

The other day I witnessed a drone crashing on the moon. There was no sound and no explosion, just a slow descent and then something that looked like it would make a thud, only it didn’t. That’s the type of shit that happens up here, in space. On a side note, I am going to […]

The Longest Pixel Mug

Space. There are no frontiers up here, there is only silence. Or maybe it’s “down” here, however you want to look at it. Up can be down, and that which is big can look just like that which is small. A black hole winks at us, and a molecule winks back. Castor and Pollux, one […]

The Longest Pixel Shirt

Before you ask: Yes, I am still in space. The vacuum is very pleasant up here. It is endlessly quiet. Sometimes I get a bit of stardust in my eye. I’ve been trying to design some merch for TLW for a while now. It’s been almost exactly 10 years since I uploaded the original weird […]

sitting in my tin can

As you can see from my location I am currently far above the moon. I am still not quite sure what happened. Maybe I’ll tell you one day. Can you hear me?

it’s embarrassing to like Bukowski, but I do

I remember I was fifteen when I heard about Charles Bukowski for the first time. It was a group of older boys who told me to check out this writer who was super obscene and controversial. Apparently those who were familiar with his work called him “Hank”, and reading it was supposed to be life-changing. […]

little boy with colors

He is eight now, he wears glasses, and he is a rather bouncy person. I mean he likes to bounce around. In his room. In the hallway. In his car seat. Recently his mom gave him a little microphone with a built-in speaker that can amplify and add distortion effects to one’s voice. She says […]

chainsaws

This circus is much louder than the one I saw in Georgia. There are about two or three hundred people in here, most of whom are kids with their parents. Nobody seems bothered by the sheer volume of the show. They applaud rhythmically to anything resembling music. Then the tune changes and everyone stands up […]

the lagoon

The way to the lagoon leads past two old men with scruffy beards and soft smiles. They are leaning out of the gate of their house near the water, and if you know someone who knows them well then they might just hand you a bottle of something that looks like water. There is more […]

What’s up

Hey everyone!

if you want to read up on the walk, you can click on Blog or just use the map above in order to navigate between posts. All 1300+ entries are on there, starting with the first blog post I ever made.

If you just want to get a general idea about the whole thing, you could refer to The Plan, and in case you have any specific questions, make sure to check out my extensive FAQ section (in three languages).

Another thing you can do is download the Google Earth file. It is broken down into daily tracks and shows some landmarks and a vast amount of photographs.

Or you could just go and read one of my books.


Meanwhile, I have returned to The Longest Way. Here's a little animated video about it the way so far:

Oh, and I keep a few social media accounts:

YouTube - I post videos from the road whenever I can
Twitter - Have been using this one a lot lately
Facebook - I mean I have one, but meh
Instagram - Trying to post daily blog updates here
