I have returned from my five days in the wilderness. Did you miss me? I missed me.
Happy Thanksgiving. This is for everyone who has never seen a white boy rhyme badly. The first rhyme is about the scarf you might not be able to see. It’s short-lived. But it’s still horrible.
My parents called me on my birthday. Listen to my...
It's My Birthday.
I’m 22 and I have a headache.
dalasverdugo: T-Pain fights his vocoder. Awesome. HAHAHAHA.
joshuar: I linked to Perspectives earlier. I hadn’t watched them all and this is one I happened to miss. My friend emailed me to point out how amazing it was, and I think she is right. This is probably the best one of the lot. Vely vely intelesting.
Sloth Meets Pride Voting Link →
I’m up to 13 votes. Woo. Seriously, people need to stop commenting on the sloth’s wonderful butt.
My shirt is up for voting. I spent forty minutes trying to figure out how to upload my print file, until I found out you don’t necessarily have to do that. Um. So I wasted like 40 minutes. When I could have had the shirt up right when the derby started like I wanted. Guh. This is important in these derbies because often it is some of the first shirts that come out that are the ones people...
A moment I’ve been dreading. George brought his n’er-do-well son around this...– The [Ronald] REAGAN DIARIES, entry dated May 17, 1986 (via pica) (via asprettyasasong) Whoa.
I’ve been trying to write this time-travel story for a while now. Like, two years. The rough draft came out as an assignment at Orson Card’s Literary Boot Camp, and the idea has been floating in my head ever since. I was trying to make it how Orson suggested I did, using a closed temporal loop like in Back to the Future, but it never worked. At least, it didn’t plausibly, unless...
Wake up. It is dark out and there is snow on the ground! Only those that rise before the sun can make rain while the hay… Oh crap. I woke up too early.
I won’t ever have a bad day again, as long as I can watch this.
Successful Troll. Is Successful.
Adam Holwerda: i feel a lot more like i do now than i did an hour ago
Adam Holwerda: what
Vanessa: you feel a lot more like you do now?
Adam Holwerda: yeah
Adam Holwerda: an hour ago i didn't feel at all like i do now
Vanessa: what feeling is this?
Adam Holwerda: the feeling of being in the now, a sort of "presentness."
Vanessa: and you didn't feel present an hour ago?
Adam Holwerda: an hour ago i felt a futureness. like, i felt like i feel now.
Vanessa: i think i get it
Vanessa: but sure
carolinemartin: Listen. I just unfollowed a bunch of you, not because I don’t love you, but because my life is ridiculous and cluttered and I need my dashboard to not have eight pages of new posts every time I get on tumblr. Seriously, I love you, and I’ll be back soon, I promise. Ditto. Apologies.
I want a Blackberry Storm. It’s Verizon, which falls under my plan. It has space for microSD cards, of which I have several. I can watch videos on it, write stories on it, play games, listen to music, organize all my stuff. Record videos, audio…I mean, what can’t the thing do? Only thing is money, and after that only thing is whether it lives up to the hype. I’m gonna...
I Stumbled this at exactly 4AM. Coincidence? I think not.
Fiction in Haiku
I read in a book A crime-solving team of wives Plucked from the fifties Each of them a year Their code-names, you see. Clever Fifty-five wore white Time-travelers all Dabbling detectives chosen By some wise old man Now, no, later. Future With their tools, knitting, baking Crosswords and puzzles They join under ground An old train station; fifties lair Set about the work Worry for their men Left to...
Tumblr's 'like' feature
carolinemartin: thommy: blakewhitman: First off, even though this feature is very similar to what we have at Vimeo, I still think its a pretty cool feaure and will actually transform the way people use Tumblr from now on. I can see more interaction and feedback, but I can also see more inflated egos. No matter. I’ll willing to bet though, that Vimeo’s ‘like’ feature will be used a lot less...

Shirt Design Clichés
Okay, I’ve been looking at shirts for over three months now, studying each design from sites like Oddica, Threadless, Design By Humans, Uneetee, and other such non-clever-joke and more art-oriented-thoughtful collections. Here are some things I’ve noticed. Birds. Every freaking day I probably run into two or three shirts with birds on them. Why? What is it about birds? Trees. It seems...

CNN To Use Holograms on Election Night →
I don’t know. But if this does indeed pass the BS test, it might be some cool television. I just wasn’t actually aware that hologram technology existed? Soooo. Maybe this is fake.
