Forget Sewell Chan! Gawker is totes stealing my posts! Note, Krucoff, when I say ‘stealing my posts' I mean they coincidentally ran something that was on the wires. Not the wire. Of course, it’s unlikely you are going to tip them on their own laziness. But if you email Sewell, please don’t say I’m calling plagarism. I don’t want to have to watch you grovel again — Sewell won’t ever fuck you on the couch.
Why aren’t more people talking about the Snipes case? [Oh, because someone won’t kick start Blottered]. Anyhoo, isn’t weird when you see just ‘Snipes’? My first thought was ‘his name is Snipes?’. And then you find out it wasn’t an accounting error, but that Blade — who proved that he could not only exist but thrive, handsomly, doing next to no real work — decided to become a tax activist. Isn’t that like Kate Moss becoming a body image activist?
Gruberwatch: over before it started. Grrr. AAPL still at $130. But I did get this precious bit of wire snippet emailed to me earlier: “OYU TOLGOI, Mongolia — When Robert Friedland got out of prison, he headed straight for Portland, and that’s where he met Steve Jobs. The Reed College duo bounced around 1970s India, teamed with Woodstock emcee Wavy Gravy and communed on Friedland’s Oregon orchard, credited with inspiring Jobs to name his company Apple Computer.”
"Does anyone actually know someone with a trust fund?" Did this come up on the Gossip Girls or something? You know what? The last person I knew with an honest to goodness trust was in college, so she probably doesn’t count since we haven’t spoken in 15 years. But you know what I do know? About 15 people who had their apartments partially or fully financed by their parents. So, yeah, keep saying that over and over at Bar Martignetti, asshole.
GOOG at $573. You can go back to seething. AAPL? Who cares. I’m doing DTrace Controversy Countdown, waiting for Gruber to come up with a tortured explanation of how Apple mangling open source tools is a feature.
Stop wanking to the memory of Heath and start commenting on the accuracy or lack thereof of this. I would but I live over 3000 miles away, for chrissakes. Do you know how long it would take for my post to show up over there? (btw, Krucoff wishes this was him.)
APPL at $126! John Gruber considers suicide, then pauses and writes a bitchy 9,000 word screed about how every stock broker is an asshole who has it in for Steve Jobs because the Pearl just isn’t as sexy as the iPhone.
GOOG at $533. That means there’s a good chance that anyone hired in the past 18 months is learning about the concept of ‘underwater’. If you see them out this weekend, no longer fear that you are staring at a ITP grad who is a millionarie because they were faster than you at Sudoku.
Why does everyone feel the need to wax nostalgic about Kokies? It was an open sewer whose history has somehow has taken on the patina of myth. Here’s the real deal: Kokies Was Not Fun. (And neither was the Turkey’s Nest, since we’re on the subject.) Anyone who liked Kokies also likes to read Vice. Thank you.
I know, right? Kathy Acker? A guy trying to woo me gave me one of her books and told me I reminded him of her [this is Krucoff, btw]. I reminded him of a woman who died of cancer because she believed she could be cured through REBIRTHING, which is even dumber than Steve McQueen, not to mention none of her work features car chases or prison breaks.
fs the feed? who can’t say fuck? or since it’s tumblr, should I say fck? can anyone explain how this is different from blogger? or vox? im all lowercase, since the only thing it seems to do is ruin your grammar. if it is makes blogging easier, how come the only people doing it are net geeks? has anyone read kottke’s explanation of tumblr? is there any more piece of shit bad rock critic writing than trying to differentiate between a ‘link list’ and a blog post? do people really sit around and theorize about this? rex? comments? I need some kind of explanation because I read Donna Harroway for like five minutes in college and Kathy Acker after for like ten, and it was all a bunch of self indulgent hoo hah. cunt cunt cunt. there’s some acker for your. acker. acker acker. ack ack. ack.
How is the How?! You can post one MP3 a day on this bitch. The 24 hour clock starts now. UPDATE: The flash player really fs the f in the feed here. Let’s go old fashioned with our badass Jumper K. Balls.
Tourist:Could you give us directions to Olive Garden?
New Yorker:I'll do you one better. I'll walk with you there. I'm going there anyway, I'm appearing in a porn flick that's shooting near the salad bar. It will be on YouPorn 3 minutes before we're done.
