From time to time as we surf the web – the greatest medium for human communication the world has ever known – we come across something that makes us think; that makes us feel.
This is not about those times.
This is about the times we stumble across something that makes us say, “HA!”, or “Huh?”, or “Hey, get a load of THIS.” And we bookmark it, and then forget about it, until our “Bookmarks” folder starts to look like this.
In tribute to “Linky Fridays” over at sibling sub-blog Not A Potted Plant, we hereby present the first (highly) irregular installment of “Stinky Saturday”: a clearinghouse of (extremely) odds and ends with guaranteed 0% nutritional value. All links were encountered via BoingBoing, Dangerous Minds, or Warren Ellis.
These links are not always completely Safe For Work; they may not always be completely Safe For Your Sanity. They are best perused with something stiff in your fist.
No, not that; get your mind out of the gutter. A drink, for gosh sakes. Didn’t you see the post picture and title?!
Proceed at your own risk, and let’s get Stinky.
1.) It’s 9:00 PM; do you know where your children ar – OH MY GOD THEY ARE RIGHT BEHIND YOU. Come visit Scarfolk, a UK town caught in a 1970’s loop. You may enjoy it so much you will never leave. (RATING: HC)
2.) There are many sites featuring Photoshop tomfoolery. LiarTownUSA is one of the best, with varied subjects unified by a singular absurdist comic voice. (RATING: L)
3.) You can’t spell “art” without the letters C, I, and A. (RATING: AN)
4.) Thug Kitchen teaches you how to eat better, like a BOSS. I don’t know about you, but this speaks to my life. I thought we were cool, spoon. (RATING: MFL, MF)
5.) In every dream home, a deathtrap. (RATING: CP)
6.) 9 Film Frames. (RATING: D)
CP: Children in Peril
HC: Hilariously Creepy
MFL, MF: MotherFishing Language, MotherFisher
AN: Actual News
The next key step came in 1950, when the International Organisations Division (IOD) was set up under Tom Braden.
Best known for writing Eight is Enough. Seriously. The same guy Dick van Patten played.
I don’t know whether this fits the theme (though not being able to tell may be part of the point of the theme) but here’s a collection of still pictures of dogs shaking themselves. Rated CAP for Cute Animal Pictures.
The only theme is that There Is No Theme. Bring it on.
Some of those pics kind of weird me out, because the dogs look mutilated (the one that looks weirdest when NOT shaking – the Chinese Crested dog – fared best, as well as the Bull Terrier, who is apparently so compact/dense that nothing on him really jiggles).
I don’t think the nine frames thing works. Doesn’t tell the stories even if you know the film well. Presenting them out of sequence doesn’t hhelp.
I’m not sure if they are trying to re-tell the story (they just say “showcase”).
Look at them like 9 snippets of someone’s dreams. (It would be really cool to run them all on a random slideshow).
If you are not turned off by the language (and, the vegetarian-ness), you might find some good summer snack ideas at Thug Kitchen there…
Nothing wrong with vegetarian-ness. I eat meat but I don’t have to. Not every meal requires a protien.
ANd while vulgar, I approve of the ingredient selection ethic at Thug Kitchen. Gonna try the grapefruit strawberry margarita.
