Isn’t Sunnyvale the headquarters of SST Records?
Filling your white bar asshattery quota: White solar panel enthusiast with a ‘plug in electric car’ forces white Prius enthusiasts with sunlight (and power) occluding redwoods (they absorb excess CO-2 yer honor!) to cut them down. White people everywhere win. Bonus white irony: they live in Sunnyvale.
This is a post about chastisizing myself for not having a racial quota applied to my music collection.
This is a post about feeling bad for not knowing more black people.
This is a post about apologizing for my skin color.
I just realized we should start calling this the white bar.
So someone asks you, is there a bigger dick on the Internet than Gruber? Well, most days I would say, sure, I hear that Arrington guy is, but I have a life and I don’t read tech blogs, so I wouldn’t know from that. And Jeff Jarvis is dead, right? Somehow I always forget Jason Fried, who is like a dick squared or something.
Could one of you creative writer types coin a term for when hoary internet windbags pat themselves on the back for thinking of something really obvious?
Oh, god, that’s too fucking good. You know why the white stuff guy started his blog? Because he was talking to a friend about the The Wire.
In keeping with YM’s current theme, here’s Mos Def’s Personal Mixtape, as revealed last night at the Y.
Stop giving young people hope.
argh. my eyes!
See the kid on the right? Never met him until that night. It was his 27th birthday, he said somewhat dejectedly. When I told him my age (he asked), he said I give him hope. Hear that, Obama? I AM THE FACE OF HOPE. Sweaty Jew beard and all. At least that’s the vibe that double-fisting Bud Tall Boys at 4am will give off.
If they are, and pandering like that actually works, then you can be certain I will be exclusively talking shit about you in the future, you simpering link-whore.
I’m calling a team meeting tonight to discuss who you may and may not talk shit about. For the moment, the City Room blog falls in the latter group. They linked to the Y blog! It’s quite possible they are reading the YM Tum.
Oh, that was me.
GodDAMNit, which one of you Educables posted about the 1 in 100 study before I did? You neglected to mention the part about how 1 in 15 black adults is incarcerated. Right now.
Is anyone else tired of the Gay 101 veneration of Schnabel and the Gossip Girls on Daily Intelligencer? I keep expecting every post to end with ‘Oh, sister, snap!”
More proof that dipshit Chris Anderson is right: Incarceration is the new social anti-networking. Testing the “1%” rule (1% of the premium users pay for all the freeloaders), the US of Pound You in the Ass Prison Fucking A now has 1 in 100 adults behind bars (are you happy Boss? I found someone to hate on more than Jason Re-re).
Quarterlife is the new Coke Zero Movement (and will last for about as long). Honest to blog.
Sure it took awhile, but you know, chicks. Anyhoo, we can shut down the Internet: the stupidest blog post in history is here.
Before anyone forgets, this is a MUSIC BLOG, and so: The Red Squares’ Ottawa Today 7”
So Balk started his tumblr in order to increase Radar traffic? Good job security strategy. I know I’m reading more Radar now. What with all the new maths that long tail guy is talking up, I just added a bazillion dollars of worth to Radar. Balk, you me a Wild Turkey. Oh, and though it wouldn’t have been entirely accurate, adding Julia to this would have been funny.
Someone’s kid is so much more precocious than everyone else’s kid. Why am I surprised?
The only libertarian I could ever love is Jack Shafer and that’s only when he’s covering cockamamie drug stories, media dupes, or pedophilia.
Christ, that blogger photo thing is a parade of horrors. 99% of them would have been killed at birth by the Spartans. The other 1% is Ana Marie Cox.
Screw Hillary, here’s One Tough Broad From The Bronx.
Okay, all my initial thoughts are suspect because of that error. But, if it is otherwise correct: What, is Zeldman 60? Jeebus. Gruber doesn’t look like his asshole is unnaturally constrained. And no wonder Spiers is so full of herself. In a dark room, she does look attractive relative to this bunch. Now, if she can work on that rictus she calls a smile…
This has to be one of the all-time biggest linkbaits. And yes, I am only linking to it because I am on it and the picture of Lockhart is the best I’ve ever seen of him.
So if ForumWarz adds an open thread tchotchke, Rex is going to think the space time continuum imploded? Related: by next week Nick will start doing open threads that are far more obvious than ‘open caption’, and the day after that, Kottke will claim he thought of it first. Oh, and thanks to Carney being all up in our dashboard, I know William F. Buckley is dead. I’d cross link to...
Our retarded, bipolar libertarian. Jesus, I used to pity Lodwick. Now I realize what Julia saw in him. (A blank, reflective surface.)
One more reason to support Nader: he’s been blogging since 1972! Suckit, Kottke.
They still can’t figure out that tricky code when wrapping an image (is line spacing all that hard?), but thank jesus, the ugliest blog on the planet (not counting 90% of anything on tumblr) no longer eye rapes you. The logo, however, is still shit. They should have called Kottke.
Here’s an interesting thought: Is Lock only relevant at bitchy New York Media gatherings because he dates one of the tribe (bitchy media types, not jews, not that you could tell the diff from that photo shoot)? After all, you don’t see the likes of Brad Inman at the Spotted Pig. Eater doesn’t have that much pull.
Krotchke fumbles through wrong-headed feminist film theory in hopes of getting laid tonight. Ignores the fact that that role was originally written for a man.
Before the end of the day, expect a one line post from Kottke about how he thought of this whole ‘buzz’ idea, like, two years ago. Am I making fun of Yahoo or Jason? Will he shoot mean glances at cocktail parties when he sees Caterina? Is he just bitter because his half-baked entirely unoriginal idea didn’t net him a pile of stock options of dwindling value (GOOG at $464!!!)?...
Julie Christie is a GILF.
Look! The Obama as Black Jimmy Carter thing has legs. Real fast, athletic ones! That Peter Feld is a real smart black & white Jew cookie.
John Carney has a heart? Fuck me. Next you will be telling me the Boss isn’t a coward.
Maybe it was injuns (that’s a Coen shout out — not a cokehead shout out — Dana). Or Mormons.
The brain trust at Gawker explains to us all what NSFW means. SRSLY.
Stuff I Am Reading That You Are Not: Habitus.
Nevermind, they deleted the post. Let’s chalk it up to panned obsolescence.
Yes, it was 99 - I say that with 99% certainty. You can tell by its close proximity to a Kottke crack. (Something I should add that is 100% 99’s own opinion which I do not share in the least but I’ve already banned him once and I can’t risk doing that again. 99 is the only thing between YM’s pride and an ass-kicking by a 5th grader.) And fuck, are we seriously...
Tumblr is making me sadder every day.
Krotchke pretends to not care about the Oscars. What a fucking tool. (Damn, that was clever.)
Dork irony water has found its level, somewhere in the sub-basement: 43things co-hosts a party with The Onion.
Finally, Rex is a real New Yorker.
