Link dump

Hola pendéjos. How is today finding you, hmm? Me, I am at work. Grabbed myself by the neck and got the monster translation finally done and sent to check up, and am now finding myself with a bit of free time. First of all, raided the storage for left over candy from the expo, and will now dump some links that have accumulated during the past week. I think I’ll experiment with a different, cleaner bulleted layout this time, will see how that works out… Comments are welcome.

Ok, here goes.

  • Eight way restaurants fuck you over. Most things on the list are no-brainers, but there are a couple of interesting ways listed.
  • 5 TV shows that should be canceled ASAP. Entourage? Sure, it’s crap and tediously repetitive. Dexter? Ok, fine, axe it if it grew stale enough. Same goes for Weeds. But the rest are non-entities as it is and have always been. Scrubs isn’t about character growth or an evolving plot, and never was. Quit treating it as a major work of drama, ffs. It’s about gags, people. They might as well have different actors every fucking week, and it’d still be the same, it’s not like it degenerated from a shining gem into a pile of pig droppings. As far as I am concerned, Scrubs can go on for another 20 years and the ratings won’t change as long as they don’t change their brand of humor. And I’m fine with that. The [enter country name here] Top Model is obvious, it’ll always have a following. It’s just gonna be more like Big Brother, and will probably drop the pretense of giving the girls a shot at the fashion world. But come now, surely no-one believed the hype to begin with?
  • Time Out’s 50 greatest animated films, with curated by Terry Gilliam. Someday I’ll patch up my gaps in this list. I mean, shit, I still haven’t seen Persepolis! And I think I have My Neighbour Totoro waiting for me somewhere on my HD.
  • This is just a Huge pic of 50 Years of Space Exploration. Pleasing to the eye, this.
  • Remember that scene from The Empire Strikes Back where Luke Skywalker rips open his furry bipedal mount and crawls inside it to save himself from freezing to death in a blizzard? Well, that thing was called a Tauntaun. And now you can crawl inside your own!
  • So lets end the link stream on a sombre note and move on to clips. The following extensive and uncharacteristically interesting article is asking a difficult question: Will California Become America’s First Failed State?

…and cut. Remember the super slo’mo video compilation I posted a while ago? This new one is 1,000,000 times better. Because the camera in this one operates at a million frames per second! So what better to film than impacting bullets?

Next one is a double feature. First, a movie commisioned by Dove, for their Campaign For Real Beauty, a thinky disguised marketing ploy that smacks of hypocrisy and vile self-righteousness. In my opinion all those “hey, lets celebrate fat ugly people!” campaigns do. Fuck, fat ugly people don’t belong on catwalks. I don’t wanna see fat hideous strangers staring at me from billboards and imploring me to buy their pants. If there is going to be visual spam then for chrissake at least let it be pretty visual spam. But here’s the movie:

And here’s the joke. Somebody made a parody! And it is better than the preachy original:

This is it for now. But something tells me that we’re gonna have some breaking news here tomorrow… Will see how that works out. As they say, watch this space.
