  6. Wow. Even the Italians dissect my argot
  7. “A Brockton neighborhood activist who has protested profanities screamed at rock concerts has hosted ‘horny bi-dads’ for free-for-all orgies across from a junior high school.” Next they’ll demand their own float (or pull a dyke and demand a separate parade)

  15. The slightly obsessional PR sense-of-place site” and Stephen King and “Charlie Don’t Surf” (Cf. PR-otaku)
  16. What does a deaf rave sound like? Frigging loud, probably. “If not deaf when go in, deaf when come out”
  17. The Honesty Virus”: “[H]e found that the students had mishandled the truth in about one-quarter of all face-to-face conversations, and in a whopping 37% of phone calls. But when they went into cyberspace, they turned into Boy Scouts: only 1 in 5 instant-messaging chats contained a lie, and barely 14% of E-mail messages were dishonest…. Indeed, the axiom that machines never forget is built into the very format of E-mail – consider that many E-mail programs automatically ‘quote’ your words when someone replies to your message.” So knock off the top-posting

  28. The Squandered Promise of Science Fiction”: “Among the factors arrayed against acceptance of SF as serious writing, none is more plain to outsiders than this: the books are so fucking ugly. Worse, they’re all ugly in the same way, so you can’t distinguish those meant for grown-ups from those meant for 12-year-olds. Sadly enough, that confusion is intentional”
  29. Baader-Meinhof: Interview with Bruce LaBruce

  31. Screen-reader visibility. Rather more comprehensive than my article
  32. Matt Damon’s “Porn Identity”: “The Bourne Supremacy star wants to make a ‘character-driven porn movie’ with an intellectual plot…. ‘My theory on action movies is that they’re like porn movies…. A porn movie has got really bad writing, really bad acting and really thinly-drawn characters. What I want to do is make a character-driven porn movie…. It’s all going to be about the character and the porn’s going to grow out of the characters and serve as character development.” Paging John Cameron Mitchell and Mindy Kaling and Brenda Withers!
  33. Fleshbotism: I do get around.
  34. BigMuscleBlogs:

    Meaning: it’s a porn site. Now as some of you know, I’ve worked on porn sites before – if a site uses CSS for presentation and layout well, who cares if it’s a financial site or a site like, say, farmsex.com? And besides, we’re all adults here. Right? Right.

    OK, here we go.

    The client came to us looking for a product that emphasizes clean design and responsive loading times.
    [Everyone else nods]
    I tried to convert the navigation into an unordered list, and…
