Socializing

Socializing is as exhausting as giving blood. People assume we loners are misanthropes just sitting thinking, ‘Oh, people are such a bunch of assholes,’ but it’s really not like that. We just have a smaller tolerance for what it takes to be with others. It means having to perform. I get so tired of communicating.

Tetsuo!

Minimalist movie posters are so hot right now, they’ll be passé in about five minutes. I wanted in before it was too late.

At last: A fighting chance for the iPhone!

Adobe announced today that they are ceasing development of Flash for mobile devices. Said Danny Winokur, Adobe VP and Gen­er­al Man­ag­er of Inter­ac­tive Devel­op­ment:

HTML5 is now uni­ver­sal­ly sup­port­ed on major mobile devices, in some cases exclusively. This makes HTML5 the best solu­tion for cre­at­ing and deploy­ing con­tent in the brows­er across mobile platforms

which had to hurt.

Yelping with Cormac: IKEA

I went to the damndest store I ever saw with my son and my daughter in law shortly after my granddaughter was born. Had to be the biggest furniture store in the world. Showroom floor with these little rooms all done up you could walk through. I felt like I was trespassing. My son and his wife were arguing about I don’t know what so I hung back a bit and before long I lost them. I ended up next to a wall of chairs. Maybe 30 chairs on shelves all lined up. I guess I stood there for a long time just looking at them.

Via the hilarious and brilliant Yelping with Cormac.

Stuck In The Middle With You

Stuck in the Middle With You was written as a parody of Dylan’s more paranoid, drug-induced ramblings, which is another way of saying it’s a parody of every single Bob Dylan song ever recorded. The line “Clowns to the left of me, jokers to the right” is a dig at how Dylan would often generalize a group of people by cleverly referring them to as clowns or jokers. Rafferty also borrowed Dylan’s distinctive singing style, which sort of sounds like Neil Diamond trying to eat oatmeal while having a stroke.
