Co-opting the language and posture of grievance is how members of a privileged class express their belief that the way they live shouldn’t have to change, that their opponents are hypocrites and perhaps even the real oppressors. This is how you get St. Louisans sincerely explaining that Ferguson protesters are the real racists, and how you end up with an organized group of precisely the same video game enthusiasts to whom an entire industry is catering honestly believing that they’re an oppressed minority. From this kind of ideological fortification, you can stage absolutely whatever campaigns you deem necessary.

Kyle Wagner, The Future Of The Culture Wars Is Here, And It’s Gamergate (via absurdlakefront)

This is the key bit from probably the best thing written about this utter, utter shitshow.

Recent reviews of Kim Kardashian: Trapped In Her Own Game

OK I know you *think* you don’t care about a story about Kim Kardashian or her stupid game, but look: I’m working really hard on this, and I’m only telling you about it now because I don’t want you to be mad later that you could have been reading it sooner.

kfan continues to write the greatest work of celebrity fiction of our time.

Reblogging because this, in addition to being amazing, is also about TRON.

We spent 93% of our time in the run up to The MEN IN BLAZERS SHOW working on the theme song. We wanted one that would be influenced part by Jimmy Cliff, and part by Hank Williams Jr. The thought being, that might just make it the worst television theme tune of all time.

The MEN IN BLAZERS SHOW premieres tonight 10 EST on NBC Sports Network

If your friends would describe you as the “MacGyver of data analysis,” then this could be the role for you.

If this is how your friends are describing you, looking for a job is the least of your problems. (via tmills)

Wouldn’t this mean you’re making up the analysis based on whatever data you find lying around?  Instead of basing it on good data?

Production DesignMoon (2009)

Well, my generation of geek was a big fan of films like ‘Outland’ and ‘Silent Running’ and the original ‘Alien.’ Those kinds of science fiction movies were more about the character and sort of human qualities than about the technology. I love those films and I miss those films in some ways, and we wanted to create something which felt comfortable within that canon of those science fiction films from the sort of late seventies to early eighties. - director Duncan Jones; P.D. by Tony Noble

"So I copied their aesthetic verbatim and married them with a boring, derivative, and poorly-told story. Thank God it had a great score and lead performance to save it from being a total laughing stock."

I’m not sure I agree with the esteemed Mr. Atencio here, but I just wanted to underline the shout-out to Sean Connery’s OUTLAND.
