1. Cat War!
This australian man is tired of cats and their urine and he makes the most elaborate revenge ever and it’s completely awesome.
2. New Music!
Yeah, Grizzly Bear and Yeasayer are back and I already can’t wait for the awesomeness. I mean, just listen. What else is there to say?
3. Boryeong Mudfest!
What is that?
A very good question.
Every year in Boryeong, Korea there is a gigantic gathering of people who get way too drunk, way too sunburnt, and way too muddy. It was one of the most fun things I did last year and I missed it this last weekend because, um, I no longer live in Korea. If you want to know what it’s really about you can read about it here, but I think the pictures speak for themselves. Not being there makes me miss Korea like crazy and all the wonderful and strange humans I met there.
4. Internet Silliness
This should probably just be its own thing every week because it’s the reason I love the internet. See, the internet, it’s a country where everyone lives, but we all live on the same street, like in Snow Crash. Now, some of these people are your real life friends, some of them are your irreal life friends, and still others are ones you only know because you live in internetland. But what we need to remember and be careful about is the fact that most of the other people inhabiting the internet are honestly insane and they hate everything. Whether it be 3D movies, Charlemagne, healthcare, predator drones, Snookie, abortion, Daniel Tosh, William Taft, or Taylor Swift, there are people on the internet who not only hate this thing, but they hate you for not hating it, and they know how to use the internet to stalk you and be just absolutely crazy in the most aggressive way imaginable.
But, at the same time, many of these crazy people make internetland so delightful. And for that we love them, even though we should still avoid eye contact, or any contact, really. Remember, these people are insane. But, yes, here’s some silliness.
This is pre-emptive, actually, but I’m leaving for Tennessee on the 17th, which will be yesterday by the time this goes online. So who knows yet if it’s my favorite place–it may be the worst place on earth. But my favorite person on earth lives there, so it couldn’t be all bad.
Off to see a very special lady.
