In unrelated news, I really wish I had gone with a more artistic career choice, or that at the very least I programmed for more creative endeavors. I miss having inspiration and aspirations, two things I may have lacked since moving to Ithaca.
In other unrelated news, I’m considering trying this whole ‘Twitter‘ thing (which I had previously been discounting as a silly fad). If that goes well, chances are you’ll hear more about it from me.
For the record, I’ve known about Dr. Steel for months. I think he’s cool, too, and the music is good to dance to. But Dr. Horrible has the better narrative and the music is good to sing-along to. This whole “we were here first” kerfuffle is sadly both necessary (because otherwise Dr. Steel will be derided as a rip-off later) and stupid (because it shouldn’t matter).
As Krissy pointed out, hexakosioihexekontahexaphobia is tied with floccinaucinihilipilification as the longest non-technical word in the English language. But, in a non-monospaced font, hexakosioihexekontahexaphobia will appear much longer, making it cooler. Both words are longer than the oft-mis-cited antidisestablishmentarianism.
I don’t see why this guy needs a video dating service. Afterall, he’s very romantic and everything, as well. If I weren’t already taken, he would certainly have my interest! It seems like I’m just his type, too, as he so eloquently states, “I think it’s pretty hot that when a woman that is-is a goth, like I am”. Also, I like the same things like he does, such as carpools, museums, symphonies, and strip clubs.
Soon the Rickrolling phenom will become too mainstream, and I will be forced to stop liking it so much. Not really. Well, maybe, but it would probably be coincidental. I wouldn’t want the terrorists to win, afterall.
If you don’t know what they’re going on about with the actual news section of the video, here’s the story. It’s worth looking at even if you hate real news, as there’s some humorous photoshop mashup mockery submitted by readers.
Witness, the best MST3K short ever. I remember looking for this a while back after I failed to convey how awesome it is to some friends, but I couldn’t find it. Luckily, VideoSift is more on top of these things! Now they can witness this marvel of modern edutainment for themselves.
