– Hijinks Ensue. It’s basically Penny Arcade with worse art and fewer game references and as I keep trawling through the archives I’m growing a suspicion that the author is kind of a dick, but I can’t. stop. clicking. through. Definitely by geek, for geek.
– Lots of people have commented on this story about breast milk ice cream. I’ve got limited comment- for one, human milk is higher in fat and MUCH higher in milk sugar than cow milk, so this is likely to be a very rich, sweet ice cream, and for two, I don’t get why it’s not disgusting to give a baby but apparently is terrible to give anyone else. What really gets me about this is the fascination factor of what Metro UK spits out on the sidebar as “related items”. Apparently ice cream and breast milk are the best keywords ever if you want interesting news in the UK. My favorites are the banned ice cream ad with the gay priests and the rapper with the ice cream cone tattoed on his face, though the winner of the day overall is how to make breast milk taste like a banana milkshake.
– Every once in awhile we rewatch the 2001 schlocky sci-fi comedy Evolution. It’s a gigantic festering ball of bullshit with a paper-thin plot and one of my most-hated romantic tropes, the love interest who basically falls on the hero’s dick despite having no reason to and many reasons not to want to. Every single plot device is made of pure refined Stupidium and everyone spends the story passing the idiot ball like the Harlem Globetrotters. And yet it’s hilarious. Stingray and I spend the whole movie each time giggling and then randomly twitching like shocked lab monkeys and crying “bullshit!” on one of the many, many flaws. It’s a conundrum why we keep doing this to ourselves. Contrast Galaxy Quest, which we rewatch about as often and yet only love more each and every time.
– It is my ambition that I may someday have something to say about this other than “COOL!”
