Holy fucking shit, you guys. I’m currently in Salt Lake City on a layover. Here’s what Tinder looks like in Mormon country.
(There is so much comedic gold lurking in that app. As someone who travels a lot, I love what Tinder reveals to me about mating rituals from region to region. It’s like some grand and ridiculous sociological experiment with the potential to reward me with either good sex or great stories.)
100 percent share this fascination. I want to do an essay about Tinder next time I go on book tour.
Stop everything and watch this. You won’t regret it. It’s fabulous. I might cry.
Oh my god I love it.
By now, we’ve all learned to be a little more cautious when it comes to “liking” Facebook pages. One click in support of a band or a TV show, and suddenly your News Feed is bombarded with spam and unwanted updates. But did you know with a simple Facebook “like,” you could be signing away several of your legal rights as well?
That’s the case with General Mills, anyways. The food giant — which owns numerous brands including Cheerios, Lucky Charms, Trix, Betty Crocker, Pillsbury and Häagen-Dazs — updated its legal terms on Tuesday. While that would normally be snooze-worthy news, the new conditions are enough to make your jaw drop: Now every time you download a coupon, enter a General Mills sweepstakes or even “like” one of its brands on Facebook, you waive your right to sue the company.
Can you guess who?
Fuck you !!!
im laughing so hard omfg it’s like walking down the unflavored oatmeal aisle
wait, are these not all the same dude?
Is it that hard to identify them all?
i’m not sure that these aren’t all photoshop manipulations of the same actor >.>
Oh, they definitely are, they’re all variations on Cumberbatch, but it’s his face mixed with Jude Law, Jensen Ackles, RDJ, Fassy, Hiddles, Quinto, Pine, and Evans.
“The only way you can explain the behavior of women in most mainstream comics is that there has to be some sort of orgone accumulator that’s broken and driving everybody crazy. Why else would you be presenting your labia?” laughs Fraction. “Comics have done a lot of fucking wrong to its representations of women, let alone women’s sexuality.”
And maybe that’s what sets Fraction apart—and what makes Sex Criminals his most daring book yet. It’s not just that he realizes that there’s a serious sex problem in comics, or that he knows how to discuss it in incredibly nuanced ways, or even that his work often functions as counterprogramming. It’s that it so obviously pisses him the hell off. And in an industry that often seems trapped in a reductive and inane conversation about whether or not sex in comics is “good” or “bad,” Fraction loves both sex and comics, and loves talking about both in equal proportion to how much sex in most mainstream comics makes him want to facepalm.
This is a great read. mattfractionblog is a smart dude.
Now, in New York magazine, Justin Davidson argues that New York City should embrace Vienna’s superior model of housing as a method of social justice. “If de Blasio is serious about making New York not just pleasant but just, he ought to go on a scouting trip to Vienna,” he writes. Why is Austria’s capital such a hotspot for urbanist obsession?
