Lately I've been reading a lot of children's picture books, over and over? I thought "Goodnight Moon" was pretty spooky, but I had trouble finding anyone writing about that online. @redoak jokingly suggested that I become the conspiracy theorist blogger I want to see in the world, so... I did it. Here's a totally serious take on why "Goodnight Moon" is an esoteric text, from me, a serious scholar of esotericism (aka podcast listener): pseudony.ms/blags/goodnight-no

when your tests are hermetic it's all "attaboy," but when your api docs are Hermetic suddenly it's all "you are scaring the QA testers" and "you are getting DMCA takedown notices from Alistair Crowley"

back in the day, if you wanted wifi to work on your linux computer, you had to invite a burly guy named Ndiswrapper to your house and let him shit on your mom's nicest tablecloth. to this day, i'm still not sure what he got out of this arrangement, or how that fixed the wifi

I have a similar story down to reading megatokyo back in the day 😂

did i buy a starch press openbsd book in high school (in a real physical barnes and nobles) and try to install it on my only working computer? you bet
did i do that mostly because someone mentioned it on megatokyo one time? absolutely
did i get networking or startx working? extremely no

Christopher Lee and Vincent Price had the same birthday, today. They were in very many of the kind of cheesy movies I love. They were in so many movies in fact that they were in 24 movies together: screenrant.com/christopher-lee

Happy birthday, you enormous cheeseballs!

The secret to enjoying Shakespeare is to only ever read the zingers, not the whole plays. The only notable exception is that one where there’s a talking donkey who gets a love scene.

CW your unlewds, everyone! What kind of example are we setting to see non-sexual content plastered all over main!

im sure this omnibus will goof it up soon, but the Night Lords are the funniest 40k faction and i love my awful sons?

they are like that mopey vampire faction, but somehow so much more petulant? their whole deal is an earnest desire to bully space marines, forever.

its like if gormenghast was part of 40k, they are horrid instead of horrific.

the reason why britney spears has had such a bad time in the past few decades is because she has a very unfavorable match up with her rival britney axes. her strength against britney swords just hasn't been relevant
