  1. fakebook

    January 14, 2010 by jjosh

    from this giant interview with an anonymous facebook employee that's making the rounds:

    this guy had evidently added him as a friend, and sadly he accepted it, but literally stole all of this guy’s information, created a fake account, and was communicating with himself from the fake account. He was writing on his wall and posting back to the “other person’s” wall. We found out the guy actually had about fifteen fake accounts that he created, stealing other users’ pictures and information to create the accounts, and was actually communicating back and forth with himself. Just to try to make himself appear cool, I guess?

    J: What do you think about that?

    JG: Sounds pretty cool, I guess.

    J: Yeah, the guy sounds alright.

    JG: I hardly ever use my facebook account now. I don't really miss it either.

    J: Yeah, me neither. Sometimes I would get that weird addicted-y feeling like I had to know what was going on with other people, even though they weren't people I cared one whit about.

    JG: A whit, huh?

    J: That's right, a single whit.

    JG: Pretty wild the fact that they're tracking every single piece of information about their 200 million users, though, right? Every click, where the eyes go, keeping every shred of data…

    J: Makes sense. There's probably novels of the future in there somewhere.

    JG: Totally. Have you read kfan's wanna start a blog one-acts?

    J: Genius.

    Here's an info-dump of things I've been surfing…

    Damn, why is it Batman Jones has got to get there on a bike? Also he's going really fast…

    Here's the video for the new Vampire Weekend single, which normally I wouldn't bother linking to, but it's pretty good. Simple and well executed…

    This is pretty amazing. This is software I'm using, but this guy is doing a million things I've never heard of/thought of. Good inspiration, and also a bit daunting.

  7. loved him like a brand

    July 15, 2009 by jjosh

    I have to say, I’m tired tired tired of all the MW boring tribute crap…

    That said, I love Jay Smooth, and he uses MW’s death as a platform to meditate on camera awareness, brand management and what filmed images will mean to the future…and he does it really well…be sure to stick around for the end to see the woman dancing bit…

  8. short and oh so sweet

    July 13, 2009 by jjosh

    Hey, we love Pes, right? The bombing thing with the peanut, the mini rubix-cube mayhem, the chairs having sex…

    I like this one a lot…it’s short, but somewhere in the middle of it you find yourself kind of forgetting that he’s skating on a guy — it begins to seem weirdly normal…or normally weird…

  9. we’re off to party island!

    This is nice. While watching, I kept forgetting exactly what I was watching, getting caught up in the action, which is a testament to its storytelling I think. I may have to make a category just for "stop motion" because it seems like there’s so much of it out there these days…

    I don’t know why I kept resisting this whenever I’d see links to it, but I finally succumbed, and it’s a hoot. If you haven’t seen it, you should.

    Katie Couric is amazing.

    here’s some random stuff…

    lots of people apprently have seen this, but I never did…it’s good, I love the whole ytmnd thing…

    my dad gave me a great geeked-out book on language and linguistics for Christmas…it’s like the most amazing, uh, bathroom reading…you come out of there with stuff like "Hey Maxine, did you know that of languages with no relation to other languages, Korean is the most isolated?" Lately I’ve been reading about what the author calls "garden path" sentences. These are sentences that seem to go one way but then suddenly force you to change direction due to the syntax. For some reason they really tickle my brain. This is my favorite, chew on it a while:

    The old man the boats.

    Also I came across this the other day and I just watched it over and over and over until I was in a pleasurable trance…something about that flip is so appealing:

    ps they accepted our offer on the house in Williamsburg (Brooklyn)! we’re all jacked up and getting readt for months of paperwork and follow-through…you’re all invited to our house-warming, we’ll let you know when…

    I’m such a sucker for this kind of stuff…

    I love that they bleeped them, so B&E still seem sort of nice…I love how well the mouth movements are synced up…I love the nods and looks they give each other…it’s great…
