As ironic as it may sound – I’m part of the problem.
As irony has it this video will be reblogged and seen on social media outlets the world over. Go ahead and participate in the irony and reblog the video on your facebook and twitter accounts.
People look at me like I’m from another planet when I tell them I don’t have social media like Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram. In the eyes of social media I’m severely outdated, lost and not ‘connected’.
Not partaking in the aforementioned social media makes me an outsider looking in on how hyper frequent society uses its sacred social media. I can’t help but observe the people around me who appear to be consumed and addicted to trying to keep up to speed on their social media pages.
You check your Facebook page while driving. Tweet a message that you ‘just took a shower’. Instagram a photo of your double soy macchiato with extra foam and so it continues ad infinitum.
I have more questions than I do answers with social media. We live in a ridiculously hyper fast pace life where information is exchanged so rapidly that it makes us feel inadequate and drains our attention span. This painting was executed at the GALORE festival (werket.dk/galore/) in Copenhagen, Denmark. The painting is a time-lapse composed of over 9,000 photos and painted over a 5-day period. Enjoy and try to keep up.
There’s plenty of disk drive renditions of theme tunes out there, but few of them are as as good and post worthy as this version of Ray Parker Jr.’s “Ghostbusters Theme” as played by eight floppy drives.
Being a true geek isn’t about what everybody can see, it’s about what you are underneath, or what you wear underneath, and what better way to share your love for Portal than with a pair of companion cube panties. You’ll always have your companion cube with you wearing these but we can’t guarantee that your boyfriend won’t try to open the cube.
These underwear look like a companion cube, which is designed to be the object of your affection while spending time at the Testing facility. You see where this is going, buy them for the non-cubic, human-shaped object of your affection today! (Note: It is perfectly acceptable to be the object of one’s own affection.)
What happens when the apocalypse happens and all power goes out? There you are with no food, no source of heat and no tools except your tiny computer repair kit and all those bottles you filled with pee because you couldn’t go to bathroom during a raid. How do you keep warm and make fire?
