“OH MY GO— What? No, that didn’t scare me. Check out this tongue thing I can do. What’s that over there?”
This is one of the most schlarly and well-researched articles I’ve ever read on Wikipedia. But it could be a bit more thorough.
I think naming your kid “Pierce” will set them up for a future of success and/or infinite sexy romps with exotic ladies. Exhibit A: Pierce Brosnan. But any variation in spelling will only punish them with a lifetime of unending wankerdom.
I want Larry King back.
I want to protest SOPA/PIPA in the best way I can, which is generally by being an idiot.
Boy, did that feel good. Now for some real-talk. I like making things. I like making things and leaving them on my desk. I like making things and putting them on the Internet. But if the powers behind SOPA/PIPA think that posting up pictures of Trent Reznor sitting on a cliff (or pictures of a jazzy panda) is a violation of the law, then they can have my humble (and lame) website blocked. And WordPress would get penalized as well for hosting my blog in the first place (and not solely because it’s lame).
This bit of legislation might as well take a sledge-hammer and smash the Internet into tiny bits. Oh yeah, now’s a good time to tell you that the Internet is actually a small black box. Don’t believe me?!
I saw it on an episode of The IT Crowd. I would tell you which episode it was on, but Wikipedia’s been blacked-out in protest. Are you mad now, nerds?! [ed: Season/Series 3, Episode 4]
Sorry about that. Got off track again… So yeah, SOPA/PIPA.
Our love for the Internet blossomed with the user-generated revolution from a few years back. And this bill will destroy the collective community that we netizens have nurtured. So if you like, lols, jazzy pandas, bacon, video mash-ups, YouTube guitar covers, catz with terrible spelling, funny GIFs, … and happiness — fuckin’ JOY AND HAPPINESS!!! Sorry, went off the rails again. If you like the aforementioned nice things, and other nice things I was too lame to mention, let your voice be heard. Sign a few petitions for the cause. Contact your elected officials. Find a jazzy animal to
exploit take delight in.
I stumbled onto this website called Time Trabble a while ago. It’s a webcomic by a guy named Mikey Heller. I don’t remember how I found it exactly, but I took to his stuff right away. His sense of humor is absolutely bonkers, and his style of cartooning is pretty inspired.
He’s studying film at Ithaca College. This film was a project he was working on for a while (which explains the lack of new webcomics). Watch it. It’s really great. And “Fart Robot” is an amazing name for anything.
