Late Fucking Friday Photo

Unfortunately, Flickr is not letting me embed this week's pick, so you'll just have to follow this link and see it for yourself. It's worth it, I promise.

Yes, the Blondie version is a cover! I was amazed too.

Fucking Friday GIF!


Read This Article IMMEDIATELY.

Just do it. Seriously, you won't regret it. 

The article, called The War Between alt.tasteless and rec.pets.cats, is a hilarious glimpse into the origins of trolling. It is also a fascinating little time capsule from the golden age of newsgroups, when the power of the internet to bring together communities around common interests (and also communities united by freakiness) first emerged. It originally appeared in Wired magazine in 1994.

It's especially funny to see how worked up everyone got about what would today be a fairly mundane troll attack. I mean, the ISP even got involved. If something like that happened in a forum today, the incident would have likely been met with mass banning and a collective sigh of "don't feed the trolls."

A Useless Update

I am now blogging from my itouch.

God, I feel so CURRENT!

I hope you all realize that this means I can wake up in the middle of the night and post now. Be afraid.

How I Know The Internet Has Killed My Brain:

When I saw this, the first thing I thought was: "Oh man, they missed out on the perfect opportunity to put this to Yakkety Sax."

Yep. That's it. I'm officially insane.

Cameo Lover (Live at Sing Sing Studios)- Kimbra

I would have posted the studio version of Cameo Lover, but this live session is seriously better.

Your Reward for Surviving the Fourth

foobar: the FUNNIEST tech glitch ive ever heard of happened at my workplace
foobar: ok.. so we run an internet storage service right?  and one of our clients is a large photo site that allows people to upload pics and view them online
foobar: well.. our software had a little bug in it .. sometimes if a file is uploaded and not cached properly by the system, the system will deliver the same file for hundreds or thousands of different files
foobar: so what happened is someone uploaded some bestiality pictures, and those got caught in the cache, so everbody uploading their 4th of july pics got them ALL replaced by the same picture of a girl jerking off a horse
foobar: 50,000 times

Apology #123427

Sometimes I really wonder what the readers of this blog think of me, if I actually have readers, or even a reader. I wonder this because of how consistently awful I am about posting. I post in irregularly-timed bursts, between which there are long lulls, and I can only imagine how frustrating that must be for anyone reading. Recently I discovered a post scheduling feature that could get me out of this sad plight, but I can't even get together enough spare posts to use the fucking scheduler. With my new features, Weird Song Wednesday and the Fucking Friday Photo, I set the bar very low for myself, only requiring two posts a week. As per usual, I missed it anyway.

The point of this all is that I'm sorry I'm such a shitty blog author. I know I've said this a million times before, but I will try to be better. And I will force myself to use that post scheduler. I swear. Eventually. In the meantime, I'll console myself with the idea that maybe my nonexistent readers find my utter failure to follow a very lax schedule endearing, or at the very least amusing.

Happy Fourth of July!

Play these at the same time.

Stats Mania

I just discovered the wonder that is my Stats page. Some of the exciting things I found:
  •  The most popular search term for getting to my blog, by far, is "the radium water worked fine until his jaw came off." Who knew there was such an untapped need out there to learn about Radioactive Quackery?
  • Two lucky people, however, have found my blog by searching for "urinal spinny things." I don't know, and I really don't want to know.
  • People have also found my blog searching for "habitat of the radish" and "band names that start with 'the holy'" (which I do not understand why I am a result for, and which also apparently happened today).
  • I was visited a couple times by someone searching "if you can't tell if its potato borscht, there might be children working in the mines." I'd like to think I helped them out.
  • Apparently I also get a lot of hits from my pathetic animation of a stick figure doing the Macarena. Because of this, this is also my most-viewed post of all time, which I feel is a little unfair to all my other awesome posts.
  • People have viewed my blog from iPods, iPads, and iPhones. In fact, more people have visited my site on an iPhone than using Linux. (However, far more people have visited using Other Unix operating systems, which I find very interesting indeed. I guess I really do attract nerds.)
  • My blog has been viewed three times from a fucking PSP.
  • I have gotten hits from Iran, Brazil, Ukraine, Malaysia, Georgia, and Latvia. In fact, I got views from Latvia, Georgia, and Malaysia on this very day, which makes me feel very international.
  • My grand, all-time total of page views as of right now is 8,859, which is about 8,850 more than I expected it to be. Thanks, random people!

Ever wondered how to write a good limerick?

Well, wonder no more- as always, Wikipedia has got your back, this time with a shockingly accurate limerick template.
There once was an X from place B,
Who satisfied predicate P,
The X did thing A,
In a specified way,
Resulting in circumstance C.
This bit of brilliance was found in the Wikipedia article for Meta-joke, which has some more frighteningly accurate and inexplicably funny joke templates, as well as a collection of other jokes about jokes.

Fucking Friday Photo

All right, I know that since it's past midnight I technically missed my Friday deadline, but I was close, dammit.
