Merry Christmas Everybody
A Christmas Story
I went on a Christmas mission to the hardware store with my brother this afternoon. It had snowed a great deal in the several days before my arrival in Milwaukee the night before, and the streets were stacked with drifts. I told my brother the story about how, five years ago walking back from a double date, a girlfriend had poured less than a handful of snow down the back of my shirt. “Watch...
groupuscule: art imitating luxemburg: A major problem with current “political analysis” is that there’s no need to analyze something that’s obvious to everyone. American national politics is a vulgar, transparent, and stupid drama. You can read a few news wires regularly and understand every major politician’s short- and long-term intentions. This is why most of our Wonkette posts are composed...

For a while I couldn’t find this but now I can. So here it is.
A Trio of Video Links
In honor of arts and crafts day. College Humor’s Minesweeper: The Movie A live-action recreation of the Goldeneye N64 video game. This one isn’t funny, but it uses 120 frames per second to shoot skateboarders at the Palais de Tokyo in Paris, which is where I skated during my year abroad.

It should surprise no one that “The Dead” is available online at any time. It’s pretty sweet how Joyce compresses the song into a relatively small space, waits through the cab ride, and then explodes it in the final pages. By the time the reader reaches Gretta’s explanation, so much has happened that it’s easy to have forgotten the little ditty. I can’t stop...

Also boss-hogs, I just got rickrolled like fifteen times clicking on assorted YouTube links promising “Chris Cole Ride the Sky Full Part in High Quality” and, weirdly, “ryan sheckler backside flip el toro,” among others.

derrinyet: Techno-psychopathology digest True: “There are lots of kids hurting badly online,” she said. “And guess what? They’re hurting badly offline, too. Because it’s more visible online, people are blaming technology rather than trying to solve the underlying problems of the kids that are hurting.” Less true: There’s a tendency to look at cases like these and dismissively conclude:...
