“The person who wrote that article gets to tell everyone she meets that she writes for a magazine, as does the copy editor who missed the mistake, as does the editor responsible for it. And everyone they meet is like, “Oh, that seems like a nice job.” And yet every third person I meet is all, “A blogger? You can make money doing that?” Yeah, I can. It’s not the best job, but I’m overqualified for magazine work.”—
(The last time I was here was the first week of June last year, for E3 2009).
I haven’t eaten a meal in ten and a half hours. But there are only buildings — hotels, offices, arenas — here. In “downtown” New York (or really, anywhere on the island of Manhattan), you can find food on every street corner. Here, I need to Google shit on my phone. Lame.
Why am I up at 6:41 AM on a Saturday? Because I’m flying to L.A. at 9 AM for the weekend, for a videogame-related event taking place tonight that I’m covering for Destructoid. I’ll be in town through Monday morning, and probably won’t be posting much, if at all. I still love you guys, though!
“I heard about LeBron James’ little tweet…He’s making a list of people that said something bad about him. Well, I want to make sure my name is on that list, because I thought that little one-hour special was a punk move. I thought them dancing on stage was a punk move…Him joining Dwayne Wade’s team was disappointing to me…If he wants to take that as criticism, so be it. He know where I be. I’m easy to find. I’m on TV every week.”—
I’m a nerd, and as such, I really enjoy statistics and data — when they’re presented in an elegant way, that is. I’m easily bored by dry, scientific writing, so when people like the folks at OkTrends, the data-tracking blog behind OkCupid, use the power of the Internet to amass a trove of data and then synthesize it into something easily comprehensible such as this, I’m floored.
Note to self: Your Canon PowerShot A700 isn’t getting you laid.
"I still can’t get over the bizarre audacity of Coke’s legal case. Forced to defend themselves in court, they are acknowledging that vitaminwater isn’t a healthy product. But they are arguing that advertising it as such isn’t false advertising, because no could possibly believe such a ridiculous claim."
