Hipsters = hippies - subversion + Twitter– Valleywag… …Inspired by Adbusters Me, I’m waiting for Hipster Runoff to chime in… (via jimrock) It should say something about my state of mind that for about nine seconds I truly, earnestly thought that Valleywag was talking about source control systems.

Obviously, I searched for my name. First impression: they need to do a little bit better job of collapsing identical pages. 75% of the first 3 pages of results were identical mirrors of Vim changelogs.

A couple months ago, an anonymous blogger set out to try to be the ESPN.com featured comment of the day. He was armed only with a careful study of the cheerful banalities that usually appeared, and endless patience. On his 42nd try, he succeeded.
Food For Thought: Greatest Characters In The...
skeetonmischa: This is another one of those topics that comes up often in these parts after watching an especially amazing TV series. With the new season of “Mad Men” starting next Sunday, I believe it’s time to drudge out this list again. In no particular order, here’s a rough list of great TV characters in my opinion: Homer Simpson from “The Simpsons” Alan Partridge from “I’m Alan...

There were two tugs under construction at the time; like everything else, they’re completely gone. “It’s like the building melted,” said my dad over the phone. Water pressure south of...

At least, the only one working for the MSM. Despite this, I still only read his stuff when I remember to, like when Deadspin links it.
