“When Chekhov saw the long winter, he saw a winter bleak and dark and bereft of hope. Yet we know that winter is just another step in the cycle of life. But standing here among the people of America and basking in the warmth of their hearths and hearts, I couldn’t imagine a better fate than a long and lustrous winter.”
While the US was watching its liberal democracy come to an end, North Korea was having real problems.
Apparently a giraffe was on the loose. But unlike our own ill-fated Harambe, the Dear Leader was on the case:
Day two of Comic Con was a blast! Here are some of my photos from the days adventures. My partner and I went as Steampunk Mario and Princess Peach. Now ThunderCats, Hooo!
127 weeks ago, I assume, I was a starred commenter on Gawker. Not UK Gawker, but America Gawker. Now, I’m regulated to the grays.
Wow. I just got done with the 7pm showing of the new Ghostbusters here in NYC at the AMC on 42. And here are some of my initial thoughts:
In less than an hour, aircraft from here will join others from around the world. And you will be launching the largest aerial battle in the history of mankind.
In a shocking post on our sister publication Jezebel, it was revealed in an un-doctored photo that the Queen of England only has one outfit. The bright green dress allows palace photographers to later superimpose various forms of dress onto the Queen. This is a developing story. Stay tuned for further updates.
So, before my most recent trip to France, I upgraded my old iPhone. I loved the 5, and I was not terribly excited about the protruding lens and the size of the 6s. But, after living a few months with a broken screen—and Apple changing their policy about accepting broken screen iPhones for trade-ins—I took the plunge.
In the memory of Justice Scalia, I’ve compiled some choice dissents by the late Justice.
In less than an hour, aircraft from here will join others from around the world. And you will be launching the largest aerial battle in the history of mankind. “Mankind.” That word should have new meaning for all of us today. We can’t be consumed by our petty differences anymore. We will be united in our common…
This. This is why the Internet wins. Also, the cats and kittens over at Jezebel broke this story. IO9ers where were you on this?
Perhaps this is old news to you guys here, but I only learned today that Canada's Supreme Court dresses like Santa Claus. So, while we're losing Panda cams, National Parks, and WW2 Memorials over a fight "to bring the nation’s health care system in line with international standards", we can still laugh at Canada,…
Because one too many people posted on my theFacebook dot com today about where they were 12 years ago, I offer a section from a novella written long ago:
America fails again. A few years ago, NASA/Congress didn't go through with a mission that would send a BOAT to a new planet/moon to sail on SEAS of methane. This country has all its priorities wrong. We're talking about a BOAT in SPACE. Could one propose a more awesome mission (well yes, but it involves yet to be…
There is no question in my mind: AD is the greatest comedy program produced in the naughties (a wee-Britishism for the aughts or 00s, kind of like a banger in the mouth). I remember the day I watched my first episode of the series: it was March 18, 2006, the day after Saint Patrick’s Day, and it was a Saturday. The…
