Your world is not what it was

I changed some things:
-altered the page template to the new blogger system, which allows cool drag and drop layout and a widget system, but also allows some editing of the underlying code
-added labels widget, hacked it to only show tags used more than twice
-hacked the post template to only show the author on the individual item page, not on our front page

If anyone dislikes anything, comment below.

Maybe I'll do some actual look and feel hacking, too, cuz this template is fugly. It'd also be cool to add the number of posts by contributors next to their name, but haven't figured that out yet.

Ars Mortifera

The target of this post is appropriate for anchorbutt, but my prose can not rival that of tormp's previous post, so I'll just link on through.

national pornographic on youtube

national geographic has a lot of content hosted on youtube. the presentation has been foxnewsinated for the youtube generation, albeit in a sad way that suggests discomfort with the whole enterprise.

EXHIBIT A: LAGOMORPH DEFILED TO SATISFY POPULAR BLOODLUST




discussion / spoiler alert
What the hell is dad thinking? "My daughter doesn't know yet, so I wanted to, you know..."? NO! How many sane ways can you complete that sentence? ZERO. Also, aren't 5-year-olds all internet-savvy now? Seeing "Thumper" disintegumented on YouTube over and over again will be less traumatic than confronting her erstwhile friend's return to the void? Asshole.

I think the subject matter and production here seems geared to match TLC-level "edutainment": a presentation of tawdry subject matter whose entertainment value clearly lies in schadenfreude or other base titillation, and not in the, eh, noble facade of learning something stimulating about taxidermy.

EXHIBIT B: WHEN CETACEANS ATTACK




It's a clever tactic, anthropomorphizing the side that wins from the first couple of frames. This reminds me of an interaction I had with Kyl's uncle, over an adorable new calf that was stumbling around their farm in NE Ohio. "Did you give him a name?" "Lunch."

Seriously, this is not the N.G. that I grew up with: the dispassionate egghead explication attending hours of nothing but blank-eyed lizards clambering over dry dirt and rocks, punctuated by fleeting moments of mind-rending horror. To what end is this progress? John Madden narrates the Serengeti?

Two for One

Originally I was just going to link the Titanic conspiracy theory. An unconvincing hoax since he chose to justify his text, rather then use the center tag. But now I'm also linking the iPhone rant.

ohhhhhhh yeahhhhh

"The ambitious Swiss electronic duo Yello comprised vocalist/conceptualist Dieter Meier -- a millionaire industrialist, professional gambler, and member of Switzerland's national golf team -- and composer/arranger Boris Blank."
