It’s official: The Internet just ran out of addresses.

“There are lots of workarounds, and we can do more of that,” he says. “The big problem is that when things go wrong, debugging the Internet is [expletive].”



Live blogging “In Bruges”

It’s about hitmen touristing in Belgium.
There’s beer.
And fat Americans.
And now, a dwarf.
“I hope your midget doesn’t kill himself. Your dream sequence will be fooked.”
Also, Mad-Eye Moody is one of the hitmen. And Colin Farrell is the other hitman.
And an ugly bear dog thing.
I’m really selling this movie, huh.
Now Mad-Eye Moody, Colin Farrell, the dwarf, and two prostitutes are all doing drugs.
And the boss of the hitmen? Voldemort.
Oh, and Fleur Delacour is apparently also in this.
And the guy who’s gonna play Aberforth Dumbledore…jesus, this movie had *everyone*

Voldemort just kneecapped Mad-Eye. Better than the alternative, I guess.
And now Voldemort’s blown a dwarf’s head off. So, that’s true to form.
Everyone should have done this movie in character/costume.

And now, a key scene. Use headphones, Brendan Gleeson gets with the sailor talk.

Steve Albini, Guitar Amps & Encapsulation

February 7, 2011

“Steve Albini plays and records music. In addition to playing guitar and singing for the band Shellac, he is also a highly recognized audio engineer.

I’m not sure if Mr. Albini knows anything about computer programming but he certainly understands the concept of encapsulation.”



Data are the original huddled masses, yearning to be free.

Be True To Your School (The Beach Boys)

When some loud braggart tries to put me down
And says his school is great
I tell him right away
“Now what’s the matter buddy
Ain’t you heard of my school
It’s number one in the state”

My guesses:
1. Asbestos abatement
2. Landscape and Arboreal Arts
3. Teen pregnancy
