• gamer dweebs: if you don't like the game, why don't you just make your own version? That way I can ignore it, downvote it, talk shit about it, roll my eyes when people talk about it, refuse to play it, badmouth the person who made it, steal it, play five minutes of it, write a passive aggressive jemble review about it, then pretend it was some infallibly neutral and objective invisible hand of the market that caused it to fail, then use it as an example of what happens when people don't do what I want
  • Me: *goes looking for a definition of 'jemble'. Finds out it's a term for a massively confident but equally massive loser. Oh.*

NO. I do not share the same brain as my co-workers.

NO. I do not have every damnable transaction, item, delivery date, etc. etc. memorised.

NO. I can not read your pathetic excuse/surrogate for a mind.

NO. We will not collect your rubbish for you.

NO. You are not doing us a favour.

if you want to understand the psyche of our generation take a good look at the stories we tell ourselves about the future

because it isn’t flying cars or robot dogs, it’s faceless government surveillance and worldwide pandemics and militarized police brutality and the last dregs of humanity struggling to survive

our generation isn’t self-centered, or lazy, or whatever else they wanna say about us. we are young, and we are here, and we are deeply, deeply afraid.

How do you feel about Notch selling Minecraft to Microsoft and leaving Mojang?

edmundmcmillen answered:

id totally do it if i was in his shoes, the guy did the right thing. 

when something you create gets so big that it becomes something the players feel more ownership of than the creator, i think its good to hand it off to a larger company who can do more with it than you can/are willing to do.

much like the star wars situation, if i was in either of their shoes id totally do the same and move on to a totally unrelated IP.

So I finally got a handle on Mixed In Key’s MashUp program and managed to cut down “Roadside Attractions on the Way to Bliss” by Aavepyörä, off his 2010 album Kotiin haltiakansan luo. Not everyone likes goa trance tunes that last ten minutes plus, so for my first edit, down it came from eleven minutes to six and a half.

Nowadays if you want that album, you need Katso kukkaa. So go get it!

(This version is a low-quality 128kbps version. Not fit for sale, use on livestock, or Finnish trance producers.)

I suffer from acute awareness that I have only forty more years to live, and that paralyses me when I contemplate all the things I want to do, despite my death being further away than it actually appears.

Breaking news: The D.C. Appeals Court just killed Net Neutrality.This could be the end of the Internet as we know it. But it doesn’t have to be. Tell the FCC to restore Net Neutrality: http://bit.ly/1iOOjoe

they want to make the internet like tv. with channels and paying to get to specific websites and things. net neutrality = not doing that

I do not reblog things like this very often, but this affects me both personally and my business as a freelance artist.
In the economy here; cash is already strapped as it is. You bet your ass companies would suck the ever living life out of misc. art sites.
I don’t want it to ever come down to me choosing between groceries or purchasing a new tier package via comcast to be able to access tumblr or DeviantArt (let alone not guaranteeing I’ll even be seen by my customer base since they may not want to pay out their asses either). It doesn’t seem important to most, but I do 90% of my business online entirely.
Please sign up, fight for this and share it with your followers/friends/family and urge them to give them hell as well.

Not writing related, but this is incredibly important. While we pay for service via ISPs, the internet has been a relatively free space where everyone, no matter their income level, is able to connect, access a wealth of information, and express themselves. The Internet has become a major part of our culture as human beings and the notion that ISPs might be able to limit what sites I can access unless I pay them more is utterly sickening. A lot of us are cash strapped as is, and I’d rather not be limited even more by someone else’s greed. Net Neutrality is essential and I hope you guys will understand why it needs to remain.

As a Kiwi, I can imagine that the demands of the greedy US cunts will effectively push up costs down here, even as the service degrades (because Big Internet is in bed with Big Copyright). Which, of course, will affect the entire NZ economy, to say nothing of the global one.
So signal boost the everloving hell out of this.
