Chuck Norris wearing a sweater woven from the universe? Check. A woman with a giant gun leaning through an interdimensional portal? Check. The bust of a ninja with no skin, with a hand that can’t possibly be his brandishing a sai in front of him? Check and check.
And that tagline: “In a world of choices, for one man there is no choice….” Which world is this? Are there worlds without choices? The poster doesn’t appear to be depicting Earth, is ours one of those worlds? Is this subtle social commentary?

I guess this is as good a time as any to announce to you guys my new project, Nullary Sources. It’s a link blog I’m doing with my bestest buddy ‘Ili Butterfield — think of it like Chitwood & Hobbs but about current events, rad music, and amazing internet finds like the above (written by ‘Ili, natch).

I hope you guys like it — I’ve been having a blast. (I doubt I’ll be doing much more tumblring here, although I will definitely still be updating my regular blog, iamthewalr.us.)

The Confusatory: Contested

cbowns:

Long story short: Andy and I threw down our respective gloves after throwing back the third glass of whiskey, and came up with this: every Tuesday, we’ll spend 20 minutes of our respective shuttle rides to work writing something. It doesn’t matter what, but when those 20 minutes are up, you publish it.

Great post from Chris. Oh also, I’m in. (Although I don’t have to ride a shuttle. Suckas.)

Every mission to Mars

Nerd stuff.

I’ll bet there isn’t a tornado warning on Mars right now.

“What’s the matter, son? Too wasted to pick your age off of one the colored balls on my pants?”

I sure am glad I’m not 37, 38, 42 or 43 years old.

This cartoon needs a caption! Enter our caption contest.

“I can’t hear you very well. Could you sit a little closer?”

Chairman of the Bored.

“Christ, what an asshole.”

"I’m masturbating under this huge table and I don’t give a shit if you catch me."
(Seriously though, The Monkeys You Ordered is one of my favorite tumblrs. Check it out.)

This is so much better than the album version. Listen to that synth riff! Listen to that coda! On Summerteeth, they kind of back away from this song a bit — here, they’re really leaning into it.

Still can’t really process that we lost Jay Bennett to the jackals at the insurance companies. Godspeed, sir.

Felt Tip blog: Slow Company

felttip:

There’s the Fast Company magazine*. There’s the Slow Food movement. Let’s start a Slow Company movement. The idea is to take ideas such as the lean startup and organic growth and apply it to the companies we run. It’s not going to be a runaway success, but you have a better chance of actually making a dent in the world with your app and making people’s lives better even if not everybody knows who you are.

Lucius really nails it with this one.

Robert Reich: Safety on the Cheap

robertreich:

Can we please agree that in the real world corporations exist for one purpose, and one purpose only — to make as much money as possible, which means cutting costs as much as possible?

The New York Times reports that G.E. marketed the Mark 1 boiling water reactors, used in TEPCO’s Fukushima…

Read the whole thing. Seriously.

Dr.Katz - Ray Romano - Ep. 102 Pretzelkins

Ibid.

It’s interesting how similar this is to one of Ray’s standup routines:

Still though, classic. Love Dr. Katz and love Ray.

Great performance, great song, great album, great band — but one thing has always mystified me about this song.

Just watching the miles flying by
You are not my typewriter1
But you could be my demon
moving forward through the flaming doors

I.. I don’t even… Anyway, ignore that and focus on the chorus: You have to learn how to die / If you wanna wanna be alive.


  1. I always hear this as You are not my tie fighter, which doesn’t help.
