“We came, we saw, we kicked it’s ass!”

Trust me, it’s catchy. Watch it twice.

Sloth and Goonies and ugliesttatoos.com


From an entry on ugliesttatoos.com(site is somewhat NSFW but this entry isn’t):

GooniesSlothTattoo-P.jpg

That said, in a few years there will be a generation of adults for whom The Goonies is not the nostalgic icon that it is for us. And those people are going to ask you why you have a tattoo of a retarded pirate on your arm. If there are any measures you can take to prepare yourself for this outcome, you should probably do it.

…and that’s sad.

OMG! Virus! (c. 1988)


An awesome retro news report from 1988 about the super scary Morris Worm. Centered on MIT, it features none other than jis himself a few times. And an amish part-time virus hunter cum MIT student? Courtesy of The Scottographer .

Some good quotes:
“the students were safe … their computers were not.”
“the suspect, somewhere…. a dark genius.”

Stuff Magazine: Hickman Mania?


On my way into the office this morning I did something I usually don’t do. I grabbed a copy of Stuff Magazine because on the cover was none other than everybody’s favorite bassist with the stylin’ threads and handlebar mustache, Zachariah Hickman:

Turns out there’s a section inside about 11 Bostonians with signature looks, and of course he’s featured prominently in it. He calls it: “cowboy suits, seersucker, and general haberdashery.” General haberdashery, indeed. Figured my pickin’ partners would enjoy this.

Flood: Turkish Datacenter Into the Weeds


This video is pretty awesome in a “glad that’s not me” and “I hope they have offsite backups” kind of way. At around 5:21 watch the plate glass window fail, and then at 6:10 the video switches to a camera in the machine room. Servers and water don’t mix.

Your junk email, illustrated.


Came across this set of illustrations by Elliott Burford tonight, and I found them too awesome not to share.

I’m at the combination Pizza Hut and Taco Bell


This may be the next best thing to the bumblebee tuna song. It’s stuck in my head, but it’s wonderful:

MP3:> Das Racist: “Combination Pizza Hut and Taco Bell (Wallpaper. Remix)”

From the above linked review:
Reactions within our staff have ranged from “I’d like to punch these guys in the face” and “this was sent here to destroy my interest in music” to “Harold and Kumar existentialism” (this wasn’t me) and “a critique of commercialism/lack of a leisure culture” (um, this was)
