The other day I was saying to myself “Self, you need to tell more people about that book you wrote.”
So here I am again, talking about Reboot Your F*cking Computer (or, as I sometimes refer to it, “How I Learned to Stop Troubleshooting and Start Power Cycling”).
Buy it for Kindle here. Tell your friends. Laugh. Cry. Then ask me to sign your e-reader. Because it’s the best five bucks you’ll ever spend.

I have watched 2:40 hours of pingu so far.

I am creating a compilation of every NOOT NOOT in the entire series.

I am destroying myself.

This is it so far.

I’m obsessed with this compilation for reasons I can’t explain

I haven’t gone in a long time [to a Masters of Horror dinner]. I went to the first few and it was a lot of fun. [..] Then, it sort of became something else. I think the night that got me— David Cronenberg showed up. And he’s an old friend of mine. And unfortunately, he takes himself so seriously these days…He’s an artist now. And literally, he was holding court in the middle of the room, so I came over to talk to him. And he didn’t look at me. And I thought, this is enough of this, forget it, goodbye. And I walked out, I thought, I don’t need this anymore. And you know, fine, Eli Roth with his Hollywood hair … Darren Aronofsky, secretly I think hates horror films… Let the geniuses go. Let them go— let them be geniuses. I’ll stay home.

[Interviewer: Play X-Box?] Hell yeah.

John Carpenter. (via twiststreet)

This is not my beautiful house.

(via highway62)

As much as I like the idea of a shoot-from-the-hip kind of guy stepping into a party and deflating pomposity, I have to wonder if Carpenter just has a weird anti-intellectual streak.

From the New York Times:
"There is also a revival of interest in his Reagan-era alien movie They Live, with rumors of a remake and a recent book about it by the novelist Jonathan Lethem, the winner of a MacArthur grant.

This seems to make Mr. Carpenter somewhat uncomfortable. After listening to a passage from Mr. Lethem’s book praising one famously long fight scene involving Keith David and the wrestler Roddy Piper, Mr. Carpenter scoffs. ‘Dude, he was a wrestler,’ he says. ‘I cast a wrestler. We just wanted to put on a show, because this was a wrestler. I like what this genius writer says.’

The so-called “startle reflex” is probably the fastest response you can have.

The science of why certain sounds scare us – another great illuminator from Joe Hanson. This might explain why Dickens and Babbage waged a war on noise…

Pair with Alfred Hitchcock on the fright complex and Vi Hart’s animated explanation of the science of noise.

Anonymous asked: Being fit is being skinny you idiot, being athletic and flexible is a whole different thing, you don't have to skinny to be athletic but you do have to be skinny to be fit

"Fitness." Merriam-Webster.com. Merriam-Webster, n.d. Web. 28 Dec. 2013. <http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/fitness>.

I don’t know what prompted you to send me the dumbest message I’ve received in at least 6 months, but nowhere in the Merriam-Webster dictionary definition of “fitness” do I find the word “skinny.” Even synonyms for the word “fitness” focus 100% on health attributes as opposed to size attributes. So I’m sorry if you have this deep seeded complex that refuses to allow you to accept that, from all standpoints of medicine, science, and flat out fact, fitness is irrelevant to body size. That really sucks for you that your brain is struggling to let you come to terms with that. However, it is also 100% not my problem.

tl;dr: Blow it out your ass.
