Gaming for Millennials

Gaming for Millennials: "Games such as Mass Effect allow a millennial to spend hours modelling my own face but prettier, something that has become important to me after years of Mad Men era advertising deriding my own self-image in order to have me buy their beauty products in a feeble attempt to feel better. Mass Effect also enables me to go out into a world of arseholes to battle some made-up concepts in order to gain made-up currency, something I imagine Wall Street executives braying over as they have a butler hold their dick at a urinal. What an outlandish idea! How could it be applicable to the real world."

Going back to summer in Igboland

“Before the trip, Nigeria was a dim set of associations in my mind: my parent’s stories of their childhood, highlife cassette tapes, dated images from Google searches, negative news headlines, the taste of rice and stew. Going back gave me vivid experiences to call part of my life, to draw from when I talk about the country, my identity, what kinds of people I come from, and the roots of why I do what I do.”

Tell me how all this, and love too, will ruin us

Supernatural fans thought it was fanfic - specifically Wincest - and have used many lines to fuel their own slash. Meanwhile, Siken himself has become involved in Sherlock slash. The Awl's Adam Carlson interviews Siken about all this and more, including I Can Haz Siken.

Mmm, web fruit

Fruits of the Web is a blog that takes the often clunky and goofy world of scientific modeling out of context, reveling in the surreal effects of block men ironing, masks of points, and skeletons shoveling. Thankfully, they also tend to post source articles and videos so you can find out just why someone would make something like that. They also post other web ephemera, like strange Easter gifs and whatnot. Overall, just a nice little cornucopia of oddities. Occasionally slightly not work safe.

Regional Gothic

It is summer. The sun is shining. It is winter. The sun is shining. You aren’t certain, upon reflection, when the last time was that the sun was not shining. Tumblr's latest meme is Regional Gothic, in which the established Southern Gothic literary genre meets Welcome to Night Vale, and is applied to short, creepypasta-esque fiction of other regions, cities, and communities. The Meme Documentation tumblr provides an explanation and examples of the meme, more of which can also be found under the global regional gothic tag. [more inside]
