Today in Things I Never Thought Iโ€™d See in Opera: A Residents Tattoo

I want a body pillow of my waifu, except it's a body pillow sized bag of doritos.

Why has nobody mashed up Electric Six's "Gay Bar" with the Alex Jones "Gay Frogs" rant?

it's a special kind of high to be stuck in a moderately uncomfortable position and needing a significant act of will to move out of it.

I know the Kelvin-universe Star Trek movies are controversial, but are they worse than, say, Star Trek V?

No.

Into Darkness may be _as_ bad, but it's certainly not worse!

Anyone know some good industrial / synth stuff by trans artists?

(Yes, I am quite familiar with Wendy Carlos, thank you.)

online advertising (3/3) 

I would love to see a high-profile website take an approach to advertising where they sold direct ads, based on their audience size, the way it works if you buy in print: "Pay $x, and we show your static ad to this number of people. The only data you get is clickthroughs."

This is a model these new websites being launched by high-profile, fired journalists should consider if they're going with an ad-supported model... and none of them will.

If anyone has any use for someone like me who has data center and networking experience hmu.

Ordered a $20 USB-C enclosure for my backup clone drive, and it's already an improvement over the USB-A enclosure. So much faster to backup and to boot from when I test the thing.

star trek, drugs (+) 

The time travel episodes of Star Trek are always the best to watch while high... and Trials and Tribble-ations might be the _best_ one to watch while high.

cartoons, abusers, media revivals, continued 

Okay, the Rolling Stone article says John K. isn't involved, or making any money from this. Still, can we perhaps not keep doing fucking nostalgia cashgrab revivals of old media, and make new shit instead? Christ.
