Look at that: It’s my typewriter there in Naked Lunch.

Maybe not the exact same model, but pretty darned close. Mine (bottom photo) is an Olivetti Underwood Lettera 22 (circa 1950s). The one in the film is called a “Martinelli,” but seems to be a Lettera 32

Twitter Campaign: These are only facts. 

Feel free to join in on this campaign to boycott the Exodus movie trailer. I’m so infuriated that it is 2014 and we are still portraying on the silver screen a falsehood of what the ancient Egyptians were! Use the hashtag #BoycottExodusMovie to join. This is honestly some fuck boy mentality honestly!

i will be boycotting this. I hope this takes off

Not to mention that the only two non-white folks in that picture are literally spear carriers.

Thoreau's Walking - 1

[2]    I have met with but one or two persons in the course of my life who understood the art of Walking, that is, of taking walks, who had a genius, so to speak, for sauntering; which word is beautifully derived “from idle people who roved about the country, in the middle ages, and asked charity, under pretence of going à la sainte terre" — to the holy land, till the children exclaimed, "There goes asainte-terrer”, a saunterer — a holy-lander. They who never go to the holy land in their walks, as they pretend, are indeed mere idlers and vagabonds, but they who do go there are saunterers in the good sense, such as I mean. Some, however, would derive the word from sans terre, without land or a home, which, therefore, in the good sense, will mean, having no particular home, but equally at home everywhere. For this is the secret of successful sauntering. He who sits still in a house all the time may be the greatest vagrant of all, but the Saunterer, in the good sense, is no more vagrant than the meandering river, which is all the while sedulously seeking the shortest course to the sea. But I prefer the first, which indeed is the most probable derivation. For every walk is a sort of crusade, preached by some Peter the Hermit in us, to go forth and reconquer this holy land from the hands of the Infidels.

"Walking," Henry David Thoreau.

Desire path - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

desire path (also known as a desire linesocial trailgoat track orbootleg trail) can be a path created as a consequence of foot or bicycle traffic. The path usually represents the shortest or most easily navigated route between an origin and destination. The width of the path and its erosion are indicators of the amount of use the path receives. Desire paths emerge as shortcuts where constructed ways take a circuitous route, or have gaps, or are lacking entirely.

Walking - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Walking (also known as ambulation) is one of the main gaits oflocomotion among legged animals, and is typically slower than running and other gaits. Walking is defined by an ‘inverted pendulum’ gait in which the body vaults over the stiff limb or limbs with each step. This applies regardless of the number of limbs - even arthropods, with six, eight or more limbs, walk.

Lucy (2014), directed, written and edited by Luc Besson.

Itlooks like an interesting film, at least from the trailers. A bit Neo, I think, but could be done well. Not all familiar tropes are cliches. 

BUT THAT PREMISE! It is absolutely a myth that we only use 10% of our brains. We use 100%, 100% of the time. Sick of that bit of copy-paste e-mail/chainmail bunk, it needs to stop. 

It hurts to hear Morgan Freeman’s voice peddling that in the teaser trailer. One can hope the actual film is smarter than the trailer makes it seem.

(Now Hanson’s “Lucy" is stuck in my head. I know, I know, it should be "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds," but it’s not. It just isn’t. Not this time.)

Liking the new Minecraft banners in the latest snapshot. 

I think it would be fun for each server to keep a heraldic registry, so each player can register their specific banner.
