House of Cards, S02E03: Hieronymus Bot! Lucas’s wacky deep web adventures are fun for now, but the minute I see a Guy Fawkes mask, I’m out.“If you’re poor, stop being poor.” Wow. http://t.co/U80FOeNgra
“Da prom here... is we don’ ave enuff akkers hew are willen to masser da Filelfia acksin.” http://t.co/7aoGCeZ9yi@beep Hey, just trying to help and oh is that a new title in the Portal series of video games over there? *smoke capsule*@beep iOS has done that to me a few times. They usually come back within a day.
House of Cards, S02E02: Will Frank also undermine Major Dad’s sway over Walker’s Netflix queue? “I suggest ‘Usual Suspects,’ Mr. President.”My Top 3 #lastfm Artists: Brutal Juice (13), The Notwist (12) & St. Vincent (11) http://t.co/VM9BBr0OKY@krystynheide Good tips for sure (and appreciated) but I’m looking for stuff outside the city.@dropslash Thanks for the tip!“The Dark Power of Fraternities,” outstanding reporting from @CaitlinAtlantic: http://t.co/5yS6Obg4Wk@limedaring Thanks for the suggestions! I’ll let you know what we wind up doing.@limedaring Within a few hours’ drive of the city.My lady and I will be in SF in April and want to spend a couple days at an Airbnb up or down the coast a bit. Location/activity suggestions?Hey, Heineken. Your little 7oz bottles should be called Tinekens. You’re welcome.
So, people really enjoy musical theater, huh?Taking my mom to see Mamma Mia. Looking for other males with whom I can exchange sympathetic looks.
Politicians accusing politicians of acting like politicians.@Hicksdesign @andybudd @jasonsantamaria @AaronGustafson @adactio @clagnut @KuraFire I would definitely be into that.@AaronGustafson Fine by me, but it’s @jeremyflint’s photo. :)@AaronGustafson Very fond memories indeed! http://t.co/wETSvcGR7e +@adactio @clagnut @andybudd @jasonsantamaria @KuraFire @Hicksdesign“Try Anyway,” a nice little story from @steph_hay about the great places self-confidence can take you. https://t.co/3bkDvNsWdU10 Ideas for TV Shows Starring Glenn Danzig: http://t.co/MGBV6PotG4 (via @essl)
@AaronGustafson @gjhead Yeah, sorry guys, I just never really got into Frankenchrist.@cameronmoll @trammell I have a similar restriction with RSS, only with the mobile/desktop relationship reversed. iPad only, once a day.@trammell @cameronmoll My notifications are off, but I hadn’t considered removing email entirely. Care to share more about reasoning/result?
@stop I’ve never understood that follow-back “etiquette.” I guess for some people, Twitter is just a game of amassing followers.If your app prompts me to rate it, with the options being “Rate 5 Stars” and “Not Now,” I’ll go out of my way to give it a one-star rating.
Today’s view of Manhattan. http://t.co/M5XedJDKTdAfter a few days, the snow is basically a white glove test for the city, like, “See? This is how filthy this place is ALL THE TIME.”
It’s impressive that Cheers’ Sam & Diane dynamic was consistently compelling, but it took a nosedive in Season 5. It was time for her to go.
@SceneStealrEric @letterboxd Also, the personalized Year in Review generated for Pro+ members is great. http://t.co/QpZEAJLY5U@SceneStealrEric @letterboxd It makes for interesting personal viewing stats: narrative vs. documentary, iPad vs. HDTV vs. theater, etc.@SceneStealrEric @letterboxd I use a simple taxonomy for tags on each diary entry with screening details: source, format, location, etc.After a year of Pro @letterboxd membership, today I became a Patron, because it’s worth every penny and more. http://t.co/v49XxbmpdEWhat I find most enraging about 'kids these days' rhetoric is that the people indulging in it shape the world that those kids live in.

@jason_m_heller Fear of a Punk Decade: so many bands, so little space. You must want to do a book, right? I’d read it.
The snow and ice don’t bother me. It’s the cars trying to get out of their parking spots. My block sounds like the fucking Daytona Speedway.
@jodify @endashes Re: Cro-Mags: https://t.co/2vTa1VBRDW@endashes @jodify I haven’t read any of Richard Hell’s books, but I’m in the middle of David Byrne’s How Music Works, which I recommend.@jodify http://t.co/C9jbrx3dwKTonight’s iTunes shuffle realization: Joy Division’s “Transmission” can comfortably follow pretty much any song by any artist.Tonight’s smart playlist formula: “A-Sides.” http://t.co/ID2ZkJzepNIn tonight’s internet rabbit hole news, I just learned that Shirley Temple’s daughter was The Melvins’ bass player for several years.@pdoughbrie Totally agree. Like I said, it has some moments, which is more than than I got from the last one.@robotkid It has been my best friend and worst enemy for almost twenty years. Lately it’s been crashing like it’s 1999.This is how Adobe Illustrator and I are getting along these days. http://t.co/IpWiysngdw@pdoughbrie It has some moments, but it’s still not really for me. Sorry buddy. Don’t give up!Saddened by the end of @GetEditorially, a great product made by great people. Here’s looking forward to more great things ahead of them.
@essl I thought improv was improv for nerds.
Facebook, perhaps knowing its schmaltzy approach is likely incompatible with my content, will not generate an “A Look Back” video for me.My Creation Museum visit years ago was one of smug bemusement, but Ken Ham’s willful myopia in yesterday’s Creation Debate just made me sad.
@keefTV Thanks for the heads up! This is gonna be fun. Related, check out pics from my 2008 Creation Museum visit: http://t.co/Dk67JUcyO6@gjhead Thanks, I’m glad you dug it! By request, I’m planning similar primers for The Misfits and Thin Lizzy.@monteiro @keefTV Fair enough. Bowing out. Bottom line: I’ve read a lot, can’t draw a concrete conclusion, and I don’t think I’m a bad guy.@monteiro @keefTV Should we have believed the children that testified against the West Memphis Three?@monteiro @keefTV In general, I agree. But in this complicated case, is it fair to equate doubting the victim with vilifying the victim?@monteiro @keefTV The argument is “Did it happen?” And you don’t help your case by mischaracterizing people who doubt your case.@keefTV Mind you, I don’t know enough to take sides (most people don’t). I just think mischaracterizations distract from the real argument.@keefTV I get it, but the argument’s premise in this case is incorrect. Woody’s supporters acknowledge Dylan believes it happened to her.@keefTV No one is calling Dylan a liar, and accusing anyone who doesn’t pile on Woody as being complicit in rape culture is not productive.Thoughtful insights from @adactio on award culture running counter to the collaborative spirit of the web: http://t.co/UtpOOHEXYe
This morning I discovered a band that chose to call itself Unclown Despair. Surrender your badge, Hoobastank, there’s a new sheriff in town.
@halvorson Ironically, they’re all heroin addicts now. Like, all of them. Even the baby.@halvorson These are the moments @EmergencyPuppy was invented for.@halvorson I was once like you. http://t.co/xDbWw36RnoIt is very likely that I ate more lentils tonight than you did.@pdalkner Funny how many of these folks decrying “elitism” are the same ones blasting Gen Y’s supposed “everyone gets a trophy” upbringing.“…self-esteem, not achievement, is the ultimate human value, and it’s making us all dumber by the day.” http://t.co/FLRX3oMees
The 30 Years of Mac icon font is surprisingly sloppily drawn, and has odd lapses of detail (e.g. wrong aspect ratio for TiBook-era laptops).
So @Squarespace’s amateur website creation tools are okay but their amateur logo creation tool is bad? I don’t get what the problem is.@fchimero @jasonsantamaria Nothing is really about technology, is it? Look at Apple ads. All emotion. Her is kind of a parody of that.@jasonsantamaria I’m less interested in the Hollywood subtext than the concept of a calculated failure of emotional resonance.“Her made me think a lot, but it never made me feel anything.” Interesting analysis of a movie I found underwhelming. http://t.co/lcdBgUdN48
The recipe said to slice the fennel using a mandolin but I don’t have one and neither my guitar nor my ukelele did a very good job.@hoyboy Yep. Upworthy, Viral Nova, Distractify, etc = I no clicky.
