It’s way too cold for it to be Memorial Day fucking weekend. Fitting soundtrack.

I spent a lot of time in Chris Campos’s basement near the end of high school. Watching docs like this, GG Allin’s Hated in the Nation, Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer, Street Trash and oh so much more.
GoogleFaces: An independent searching agent hovering the world to spot all the faces that are hidden on earth.
“The way we perceive our environment is a complex procedure. By the help of our vision we are able to recognize friends within a huge crowd, approximate the speed of an oncoming car or simply admire a painting. One of human’s most characteristic features is our desire to detect patterns. We use this ability to penetrate into the detailed secrets of nature. However we also tend to use this ability to enrich our imagination. Hence we recognize meaningful shapes in clouds or detect a great bear upon astrological observations.”
“One of the key aspects of this project, is the autonomy of the face searching agent and the amount of data we are investigating. The source of our image data is halfway voluntary provided by Google Maps. Our agent flips through one satellite image after the other, in order to feed the face detection algorithm with landscape samples. The corresponding iteration algorithm steps sequentially along the latitude and longitude of our globe. Once the agent circumnavigated the world, it switches to the next zoom level and starts all over again.”

a friend and I seek a corner to crash the weekend of June 14th. We will be in town for the Limp Wrist show. We are nice, clean and respectful.
Also super duper fucking handsome.
Thanks though, for real.
It all starts with the person who seems committed to win the current spirited competition as the most loathsome person in American political life: Mayor Rahm Emanuel. The same Mayor overseeing the closing of fifty-four schools and six community mental health clinics under the justification of a “budgetary crisis” has announced that the city will be handing over more than $100 million to DePaul University for a new basketball arena. This is part of a mammoth redevelopment project on South Lakeshore Drive consisting of a convention center anchored by an arena for a non-descript basketball team that has gone 47-111 over the last five years. It’s also miles away from DePaul’s campus. These aren’t the actions of a mayor. They’re the actions of a mad king.
Burn someone before they get a chance to burn you.
sugar ray’s original name was “the shrinky dinx.” this is their debut music video from 1994.
people talk about the rotting of the record industry like its a shame that musicians can’t make a living off selling plastic recordings but you have to realize that system was so insane and fucked up that it resulted in the production of this kind of garbage.
Holy shit. Shrinky Dinx were both five years behind and ahead of their time. Black Crowes + 80s RHCP + Limp Biscuit.+ Kid Rock + a random Mexican guy menacing at the camera for 2.5 seconds
I can’t even.
Do you think there were any goths on Hoth? Hoth goths, as it were.

I hate these idiots.
All the stuff with Yahoo and “will it stay cool” seems to be missing the point. They now own what’s cool, and through data aggregation, will be in a better position to observe, predict and exploit that.
agreed, we’re all gonna jump ship. but to what.
Yo tumblr fiends, I had a day where I had a lot of fun times but inside my head I was falling the fuck apart. It was a strange dichotomy where I was having fun times with my friends and family but inside feeling all the negative feels.
And yeah, I get it. I always feel shit. “That’s Diego, that dude has so many emotions”. Yeah yeah yeah.
