McDonald’s characters are evil:

There’s other characters. Evil characters.

They should’ve done more. Now I’m gonna have to look up their stories on the internets all by myself.

Cat Teaches How to Use Emojis On Mac

technology

What a time to be alive. For one thing, this is a video with a cat on a laptop. Another thing, when all the javascript and HTML magic ensues, one simple Twitter tweet turns into pretty much a full post for me:

What a wonderful time to fill you blog with semi-useful junk.

I’m Back, Losers!

Sort of.

Maybe.

For a while.

We’ll see if I like it or not. My life has had some twists and turns lately, and maybe I need a release. Or a drink.

Yeah, probably a drink.

Or 11.

Victory Over the Torture Bell

Finally, a simple way to get rid of that thing that nobody uses. It’s awesome to finally have a real answer to this question: How do I remove the Google Chrome notifications bell icon from the Mac OS X menu bar?

technology

Am I Asleep?

Not a question, but a fan-made video for the They Might Be Giants song, “Am I Awake?”

“Paul and Mike Swiatek, for the video I call “Sleep Study Voyeur:” Beautifully shot, hilarious, and unexpected. As a creator of list based humor, I must admire anyone who can keep the same joke so consistently engaging and surprising for three minutes.”

  • Writer – Paul Swiatek
  • Producer – Mike Swiatek
  • Locations – Josh Swick
  • Director – Joe Cuomo
  • Cinematographer – Kelsey Talton
  • Set Dresser – Bridget Topp
  • Editor – Jesse Newman-Lindorf
  • Actors – Leah Huebner & Nate Weisband

Funny stuff.

I ruin worlds (and something about WordPress)

technology

If you can read this, then you have the ability to read. Thank a teacher or something.

And if you can read this and you are using a web browser, then thank the browser–maker people and the folks that make WordPress. Because that’s what you’re looking at. WordPress.

Unless I’ve changed it to something else, and you are reading this in the future. If you are in the future, what’s it like? We got flying cars yet? Seriously, I wants me a flying car, and I wants it right now.

Or…a robot servant. One that won’t backtalk.

Makes me sandwiches.

I want a sandwich.

Anyways, the site now runs on WordPress. Continue the rest of your lives as usual.

How to fix a computer

education / technology

Ice T shows you how to fix common problems with your Mac. Today’s lesson involves a slight display problem. Slight content warning for language.

Also, this may void your warranty.

So, that bad idea I was going on about

technology

Just thought I’d let you know, it’s back on like Donkey Kong! Yep, I’m back to going back to going back to the drawing board. Again. This time for reals — I’m being totally cereal, you guys.

Plus, I’ll have a nifty GPL–ed WordPress theme that looks just like this site! So you too can steal my theme and fill it full of crap I’d never use. Like TrackBacks, or lots of ads, or pictures of cats, or…comments.

Point being, soon I’ll be transitioning this site back to WordPress (part 5).

Good times, good times.
