Here’s a couple of bad-ass geeky videos to get you through the week.
This first one has a Kickstarter project. I’d say its probably worth a look.
This next one is just…incredible.
So I thought up this awful joke last night, then decided it needed a picture to go with it. Ready? Here goes!
Wil Wheaton made a fan’s day when he retweeted her yesterday.
Which lead to more adorable fangirling on Twitter.
And she posted the interaction on Reddit — where this happened.
So…I’ve been looking at this “Creepy Pasta Index” for a while. It’s a collection of “creepy” stories from the Internet? Often times, I find myself reading the comments, because they can get pretty amusing. It’s probably pretty awful of me to sit here and laugh at what these people have to say, but hey, it’s what I do.
Now I must admit, there are actually some pretty good stories on there. For example: Candle Cove, Airlock, End of the Line (predictable, but interesting nonetheless), and The Strangers.
The one I’m talking about tonight isn’t really that great, nor is it the worst thing I’ve read on there. It’s a bit . . . silly, shall we say? There’s a lot that doesn’t make any sense at all. It’s called Perfectown. If you have any interest in reading it, and you don’t want the ending spoiled, I suggest you stop reading this post and go check out the story. Those of you that are still with me, here we go.
This story is about a guy who finds an entrance to this “Utopia” in his attic. He moves there, lives there happily for a while, then ends up with these urges to kill people and do awful things. In the library in this town he finds out that every 40 years they take someone from our world and let them fill up with all the evil from theirs so that they can keep living in perfect harmony. The story purports to be a diary entry by Jeffrey Dahmer.
The bit I like is this comment by Kate: “I (as the rest of the reviewers). found this story…. well… bad… it had (sorry if im using the wrong word) “idiosyncrasies” or stupid mistakes… but me being the person that loves to research like i am, i researched the person and the journal that this was allegedly taken from. the link above is the Wikipedia of the man who allegedly wrote this journal… it says he was a cereal killer… now cereal killers have (obviously) severe mental issues… ”
Now, as we all know, cereal killers have “severe mental issues”. I’m sorry. I couldn’t stop giggling. I just can’t help picturing Jeffrey Dahmer attacking his Cheerios with his spoon. Maybe that makes me an awful person, but I just had to share.
It’s Halloween and the birds are chirping. I’ve got to get ready for work, but I thought I’d leave you with some Halloween Cheer before I go.
I’ve got my pumpkins all ready. Got my skeleton flamingos on display. Next goes the candy and I’ll be all set.
Now how about you all settle down and watch this amazing video.
So my intention was to use this more as a…collection of interesting geeky things? But it seems as if that’s not working, and why shouldn’t I use this as a personal blog as well? I am Reap, after all. This is one facet of my personality.
So here we go. This is my little rant on Christmas Commercialism. A little early in the season? I agree completely. That’s my problem.
I work at Lowe’s Home Improvement, currently. Like most such stores, we have a seasonal department where we keep up with the different seasons and holidays. About mid-September, all of the Halloween decorations went up. Now that seemed a little early to me, but I let it slide, because I happen to like Halloween. It’s the only holiday I still really enjoy, in fact.
Now, only a couple of days before Halloween, all of our Halloween items are clearanced to make way for Christmas. The Christmas decorations have been up for maybe around three weeks. Two months from today is Christmas. Do people realize this? We still have two whole months?
Now, I know, it’s been a little while that this has been happening. Why am I complaining now? Let me tell you.
As a cashier, on a closing shift my job sometimes is to zone the light bulb aisle. This aisle is located right by the main entrance, across from the seasonal department. Zoning light bulbs last night, I was forced to listen to a Christmas Tree singing Jingle Bells. Halloween is in six days, and I was listening to Jingle Bells. Really? What is wrong with this picture? Can’t we at least wait until the first snow? Please? I mean, Jesus Christ people. I still remember when all the Christmas stuff going up the day after Thanksgiving was shocking to me.
Can’t we just enjoy our holidays for what they are? Just for a little while?
