The Linux Murder Trial: You’re about to experience chaos.
Fuck Sewell, he never showed up last night. Actually, neither did you two. Fuck all three of you.
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.
And holy shit, speaking of 9/11, Gothamist built a time machine and it runs on a combo of whiteness and musical obliviousness!
Heck, let’s have another 9/11. It’s not like my portfolio isn’t already in the terlet.
Don’t worry Rudy, we’ll always have 9/11.
The Snipes Trial? Wasn’t that decided already? Damn those creationists!!
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.”
New bands from the guys who brought you Drive Like Jehu, Rocket From the Crypt, Hot Snakes, &c.
Gruberwatch update! Still silent on DTrace controversy! AAPL at $130. Chortling still an option!
“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.
Hey, it’s how they caught Capone. Sorta. Except not by accident. [Warning: Not self-referential or NY nu-media centric.]
Second prize is a set of steak knives or the murder weapon of your choice I guess.
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.
