Oggi la repubblica dedica un intero articolo a Banksy, il suo documentario e tutta la storia della partecipazione alla cerimonia degli oscar, con un tono da noi vi spieghiamo chi è questo tizio genio e molto famoso che gli ammerigani non stanno capendo.
Bravi, peccato che abbiate sbagliato a scrivere Banksy almeno quattro volte, tra titolo, didascalie delle foto e articolo.
Long answer: There really is no other choice, is there? (Lolskies)
Let’s investigate: she’s trying to cultivate a fan base of gays and tweens who think they’re emotionally disaffected and anyone else who feels somewhat marginalized. Okay, that’s kewl, but to what end? I…
“Gaddafi has ordered security services to start sabotaging oil facilities. They will start by blowing up several oil pipelines, cutting off flow to Mediterranean ports. The sabotage, according to the insider, is meant to serve as a message to Libya’s rebellious tribes: It’s either me or chaos.”—Robert Baer (via soupsoup)
“We’re part of a generation that is not content to passively consume culture. We’re creators: of memes, hashtags, Twitter one-liners and homemade videos that take the pop culture of our collective past and recreate it in our own image. Marriage and parenting and mortgages can wait; we’re all about living in the sacred present tense and chronicling its key moments 140 characters at a time.”—The most offensive paragraph from “Two Cheers for the Maligned Slacker Dude,” an op-ed where Nathan Rabin argues that being a self-involved loser is important in yesterday’s Wall Street Journal. He’s under the impression that an extended male adolescence is somehow a good thing that we should celebrate, and uses a few isolated success stories of people in their twenties (who, it should have been noted, were successful precisely because they weren’t slackers or self-involved to the point of exhaustion) to try and prove his point. Not only does he fail to make a convincing case, but at one point he asks, “Do we really want more generations of 23-year-old men who drink themselves to sleep every night dreaming about what they might have done if they hadn’t gotten married and had kids right out of school?” I would put a lot more faith in the guy who has taken on the responsibility of caring for other people than I would the guy who can’t get his shit together until he’s in his thirties and is motivated only by selfishness. Besides, most of the guys I know who are slackers still drink themselves to sleep every night. (via atencio)
Sorry. Cheap shit is chaep shit. When you buy tools you buy the best. It makes life easier. iPad or nothing. Just saying.
Ok guy with all the money! Thanks for coming out and offering nothing but a bullshit,…
let me tell you a little story about this bullshit. last week i was on the train happily reading franzen on my kindle when i spot a hipster girl three seats down hunched over some sort of half closed black book with a douchey silver apple logo on it, literally doubled over in her seat, squinting through a small opening at whatever it was inside that cover.
A sorry sight, let me tell you. It turns out she was desperately trying to watch something on her ipad but couldn’t because of a serious case of sun glare coming in from the fucking train windows, on a shitty cloudy day in fucking february.
LCD screens are definitely worse than books for reading, whereas e-ink is pretty much the same as good old paper
The worse thing about Hunter S. Thompson is the unfortunate people who latched onto his writing because he did drugs.
You’re not actually serious are you? because honestly I…
What an unfortunate choice of words i’d say. The worst thing about HST? You probably mean the worst thing about those people, and even then, i mean, bad as it may be, i don’t think this ruins anything in any way for you, the enlightened reader.
Now even liking something for the supposed wrong reasons is so despicable to be blog-rant worthy? Come on internet, you’re tearing me apart.
