Create your own band and debut album cover randomly
To Do This:
1 - Go to Wikipedia. Hit “random” or click http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Random The first random Wikipedia article that comes up is the name of your band.
2 - Go to Quotations Page and select “random quotations” or click http://www.quotationspage.com/random.php3 - The last four or five words of the very LAST quote on the page is the title of your first album.
3 - Go to Flickr and click on “explore the last seven days” or click http://www.flickr.com/explore/interesting/7days - The third picture in the top row, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.
4 - Use Photoshop or similar to put it all together.
5 - Post it to your preferred online outlet with this text in the “caption” or “comment” and TAG the friends you want to join in.
Instant Origami. I’ve always wanted to know how the masters do this. Now I do. (via kanYe)6 years ago
I have no idea who Patton Oswalt is, but this is the longest article I’ve read in weeks. It is a great speech, with some profound advice.
The path is made by walking. And when you’re walking that path, you choose how things affect you. You always have that freedom, no matter how much your liberty it curtailed. You…get to choose…how things affect you.
Coined a new phrase for this - ScaryCool.

Me and Billy Bob, a recent DVD and web project, takes as its subject a ‘crush’ I have on actor and musician Billy Bob Thornton. Unfortunately, Billy Bob has not responded, and I am ready to make him jealous.
For our latest mission, we filled a subway car with identical twins, creating a human mirror. Enjoy the video first and then see below for our report with tons of photos.

Just got handed this from some dude on a sales pitch. It’s just a bunch of made up shit, and crappy sales weasel words! These guys are obviously retards and have no idea how to market their software. I’m no expert when it comes to marketing, but I know shit when I see it. Five minutes to clear it up is all it would take…
Let’s break it down
• No RAW DATA ever leaves your computer — only coded algorithms.
• We use the latest, most secure encryption coding available.
• Peer to Peer computer password protocol for added security.
Coded algorithms? Come on, sounds like this is a crap movie. It sounds technical, so they use it. Despite it making no sense. Peer to Peer computer password protocol is just complete unadulterated bullshit. Some salesmen in a room just fucking made it up. Google it, go on. All you’ll find is the company website who were pitching this to me…
• You become immune to Staff and hardware shortcomings, not to mention if a misfortunate fire or theft occurs — we can get you back up and running very quickly.
• Backup & running™ service subscribers actually get the use of our two servers which are located on geographically separate sites — this gives anyone their own dedicated off-site servers.
Please leave your details below and within 48hours you’ll have the comfort of knowing your confidential information is safe and secure?
Immune to Staff and hardware shortcomings. I’m sorry, that doesn’t make much sense. Sounds like it was written by the fucking work experience kid - I would email them telling them this, but I’ve got in trouble for that before…
geographically separate sites? What other kind of separate is there in this context? and I don’t understand how having 2 servers gives all their customers a “dedicated” server. If they have 3 customers then it’s not fucking dedicated
A misfortunate fire or theft? What the fuck? Why the question mark at the end of the last paragraph. Are they not sure that your data will be safe and secure?6 years ago
Could you write a Tumblrbot that randomly chose people to follow and unfollow, and, several times a day, just randomly reblogged items from them? And through these actions, would this bot eventually accumulate a large number of followers and people who felt like they really “got” the bot’s personality?
I’m going to find out…
