One of the thing that nauseates me about Portland, that Portlandia leaves out even though you can guess at what’s underneath all the white liberal cluelessness they mock (while arguably being part of yeah?) I don’t know a succinct way to say this. The racism, the imbedded and entrenched racism of…

Second or third time in the last couple of months that a dispute like this was resolved by neighbors buying the house. The other case (or maybe two) was in Sellwood. Pretty sure that casually buying a large home is not a tool available to most neighborhoods.

Opening a box set and finding a set of dice. Feeling very old school. Or just old- you decide.

Don Draper would be an amazing Dungeon Master. He’s good with the words.

Agent Coulson? We are going to have a pizza party!!!

RuPaul. Nuff said.

Miss Marple - Joan Hickson.

Number 6 is my Dungeon Master. Which probably means that I am a plant from 2 here to break his will, one way or another. 

Worf, son of Mogh. I am so fucked.

Another great article on retrofuturism by the always interesting writers at Boing Boing.

EDIT: Oops, accidentally reblogged instead of queuing. I haven’t actually read this yet.

  1. Disney didn’t kill the EU.
  2. The EU hasn’t died unless you and everyone else let it die.
  3. Lucasfilm made the decision to create new stories.

Get to know these facts.

I spent a good minute staring at this trying to work out how Disney could possibly kill the European Union.

I just did the same thing.

Object in the News: The Face Privatizer

Rob Walker (aka murketing) dissects how a current newsworthy subject’s use of a sunvisor has unintentionally become a statement on panopticonic celebrity culture and technology - from Design Observer:

But let’s put aside the question of how this object came into existence. What I’m interested in is how Stiviano is using it: Not to protect herself from the sun’s glare, but rather from the media glare. In other words, she is misusing, but I’d say rather effectively. This is a pretty good object-use hack.

And the aesthetics are, in my view, amazing: Unlike the traditional coat draped over a bowed head, or whatever, this visor allows her to do more than thwart perp-walk aesthetics. Instead she rather brazenly defies paparazzi culture. And indeed she seems to know what she’s doing, as she pairs her weird Darth Vader headgear with overtly camera-ready outfits — from semi-blingy-business attire to ostentatiously “casual” combinations of silly T shirts and cutoffs.

… And interestingly, in almost every picture I’ve seen, she’s prominently clutching some kind of image-making device: either a smartphone with an attachment I don’t understand … or … an enormous camera.

It is as if her jarring, sci-fi look is not merely defensive (anybody who cares to can find a million pictures of her face online right now) but a blunt provocation — meshing a public presence, an absurdly privatized face, and gadgetry for documentation. (In the images I’ve seen, she’s never documenting anything, just brandishing some gizmo that could do so if she cared to.)

Obviously it’s the privatized face, and the object privatizing it, that makes the resulting documentation
of her so compelling …

Have I already mentioned the lesson we can draw from this? I’m not sure I like it.
