Everyone’s suddenly obsessed with Jonathan Banks, as if they’d never seen Freejack.
So, ___________ is still doing that thing where a half-sensible critical review is followed by a random selection of songs from the author’s iPod?
Tumblr: Biggest Ship Yet To Sink? →
For the love of god, do not stop photoshopping cute pets into Clint Eastwood’s angry chair
Today is like waking up the day after the Grammys, after not having watched it, and reading stuff online and thinking, “Oh, wow, THAT HAPPENED?” This whole week, really.
henryeatspeople: Most of my posts are from my Instagram because using the Tumblr iPhone app is like pulling fingernails. When is Tumblr going to realize it fucked up with the new app and just scrap it and start over. It’s so paaaainful.
Nic might have been right, this Billfold problem might only be solved with a power drill aimed squarely at my frontal lobe. Mike Dang writes about scrutinizing all kinds of minor purchases but then doesn’t hesitate to cough up a fiver to a known scam artist on the subway. WAT? This is so very wrong in two ways. First, if you’re concerned about finance and about charitable causes,...

The tech scene is not ruled by nepotism at all. Nothing to see here, keep moving
Not sure what I should find more repulsive - that corporate America found a new Moby to soundtrack all their commercials, or that it’s Skrillex
Someone somewhere is commenting, “Damn, BrianVan recycled another joke about, “Damn, Tumblr is having ANOTHER party?”?”
Even if you decide to just stick with the Roth and a good ‘ol fashioned savings account, I think you’re doing just fine. The only worse answer here is to advise stuffing the money into a hole in the mattress, like they did in the Depression. Let me Google that for you?
clientsfromhell: Me: Are there any special features you’d like added to your website? Maybe a Facebook widget? Client: Can we make the cursor look like a gorilla and have it rain bananas whenever you click something?

My Qwitter email this week was light. Have no idea where this came from: Chef Catman @CHEFCatman Renaissance man, Chef, Writer and all around good guy! Still working on my plan to take over the world… I make the Best Fresh Mozzarella in NYC- Guaranteed! His own Twitter feed is a clinic in copywriting - well, more like a Nazi medical experimentation clinic than the kind of clinic...
I’m glad that Quora is fulfilling the ever-important mission of answering for tech geeks and VCs in the valley questions along the lines of, “What happens in the world?” Judging by how these questions are posed, they have a lot of catching up to do.
All this time later, I still get “All Things D” confused with “One D at a Time”
We got a Jawbone JAMBOX last Xmas as a gift, and we really love it, and I’m glad we have it. That said, I registered the product in order to use the software updater, and now I’m on Jawbone’s email marketing list, and their messages to me consist almost entirely of suggestions to buy another JAMBOX. I wonder what the conversion rate on THAT one is, especially with all of those...
Today In Questionable Comments
I’m not making fun of this incident - it’s incredibly sad - but maybe this wouldn’t be the first thing I think of as a response if I were a close friend: Carlisle was a coworker and a close friend of mine. She was a beautiful, smart, and Infinitely positive person. I will never forget her. She always lamented that her wedding announcement mistakenly stated that she was only...

Neil Armstrong is currently flustered to find out that Heaven is also a well-fabricated TV set
Ok rendit, since I might be here awhile, I finally installed Missing E on my work computer, photo replies now enabled by default, happy now? Note: I got the “Missing E popup” about 100 times on this computer before I installed Missing E. Every time it pops up, my mind reads it in David Karp’s voice, vacantly and arrogantly asking me to do everything his way and only his way. It...
“When I was invited to this bachelor party, the first thing I asked the groom was if there was going to be a strip club involved, because, no thank you, not my thing, too expensive, etc.” REPORT: PEOPLE MISSING THE POINT OF BACHELOR PARTIES (I agree, it’s unappealing to visit a modern strip club. But, guess what? You do whatever the groom wants to do, and then for your own...
What is this? I’m confused. The New York Post is actually talking about enhancing a bike lane? (BTW, anyone who designs a “bike lane” or multi-use park path with chip seal, stone dust, paver stones, Belgian blocks, milled asphalt, or anything else that isn’t a fairly smooth continuous surface - you’re a fuckin idiot. There are other ways to design a road for slow...

Someday I’m actually going to “write” something Just as soon as I close all these tabs.
How can you be sad when you give someone such an awesome going-away line?
“DaringFireball’s John Gruber reported” Never.
titivil: It’s not the first time I’ve seen this pernicious bit of speciousness. But to whoever wrote it, we of Gen X didn’t exactly stand around holding hands hoping against hope that someday some who graduated high school with us might be vice president. In fact, if we’re suspicious of anything, it’s of people who suggest that “Generation ___” might...
The NYTimes asked a bunch of liberals what they thought of a Republican. Surprisingly, they people they interviewed weren’t thrilled. And then there were a bunch of snide remarks about Lollapalooza and Jane’s Addiction. Ugh, die already.
REPRESENTATIVE Paul D. Ryan, the presumptive Republican nominee for vice president, favors grunge music, Coen brothers movies and craft brews. He sprinkles the word “awesome” into daily speech and, as a teenager, worked the ultimate “McJob,” at McDonald’s. So it might seem fair to assume that the ascendance of the Wisconsin congressman — at 42, the first member of so-called Generation X to...

I needed to take an Adderall after reading this
As the writer pointed out, “Friday’s events did not take place within the building, nor seem to have a direct connection to it…” Neither was this a “mass shooting”, as we have come to understand the term in recent years. This was the settlement of a grudge against an individual by a man with access to a gun. The man who was shot just happened to work in the Empire...
If you enjoy Game of Thrones (the TV show) then I apologize to whoever has to clean your brains off the ceiling after you read this.
Update: It was indeed terrible! I want to dock someone’s pay over it!
Vulture is currently running a post entitled, “If DMX Was Featured on the Theme Song to Reading Rainbow”. My remedial sense of pattern recognition says: this SOUNDS profoundly amusing but it will actually be clumsy, amateurish, and tiresome. Well, let’s find out! I’ll report on it in 2 minutes.
