This is a brief commercial that came up for Reeses peanut butter cups which I generally consider to be a foul imitation of what is available at trader joes at higher quality and a better price. This commercial came up at beginning of a dubstep video that someone had sent me. Internet advertising is so amazingly focused. Despite the music being uninspired it’s still produced very well. The video itself seems to know the demographic that it’s marketing to.
This is the first full on dubstep beat boxing that I’ve seen. via Fred
A black president just signed a bill allowing homosexuals to be gay in the military! Seriously, bigots all over the country must be having puppies right now.
My opinion is that you need to type faster than Google autocomplete if you want to get anywhere on the web.

I came across a pretty solid definition ofBias for Action – if you see something wrong…fix it rather than waiting for someone with more authority to tell you to fix it.
Silicon Valley is surrounded by an impenetrable moat of bullshit jargon whose tides are stunning to behold in their own rite. The effluvium spills out of an environment of merciless hucksterism with entrepreneurs desperate to do anything at odds with the staggering arrogance of venture capitalists burning money at the pyre of technology. When I leave and come back, this place seems utterly insane. The entrepreneurs have no products and no experience while the people giving them money have no track record of successful investing. It’s amazing to behold and yet still produces one of the most economically active zones on the planet.
The language reflects a culture immersed in deal making. For instance, the term “elevator pitch” comes from the idea that every person in Menlo Park is entirely willing to sell you a company between the lobby and the third floor! People actually try this and it’s weird because there aren’t even that many elevators in the Bay Area!!
My life is hilarious and awesome. There are certain days where I just want to do a raw feed of the ridiculous things that come through my inbox. My friend Charlie does this but I want to instead make a public commitment that I will keep things anonymous given the uncertain nature of the future of public records.
The following is on the invite for a new years day “carousing” in upstate ny.
OUT OF TOWN GUESTS:
Our guest house, listed below. But to ensure no one attempts sleep, the dance party will be here as well:
We do have several visitors traveling from Philly, Delaware, LA, Boston, Rochester. Although we adhere to a strict no-sleeping policy, be aware that it’s going to be cozy. Sleeping bags and/or pillows will be useful. We also have bedrooms and plenty of couches in our house.
Friend 1: My roommate and I were discussing it, and we’re pretty sure that there are no good movie adaptations of video games.
Friend 2: All three Carmen Sandiego movies were awesome, but I didn’t like that they renamed her Jason Bourne.
This is actually worth watching. I kicked these people five dollars. They are buying the satellite from a bankrupt telecom and giving free internet access to poor regions on earth. Sounds like a crackpot hippy that’s just crazy enough to work.

I really wish there was a kickstarter project for this. I’d probably give them 20$
