Teju Cole continues to devastate in 140 characters or less.

ProPublica: Everything we know so far about drone strikes

Teju Cole’s Twitter account is consistently amazing. This is because Teju Cole is consistently amazing.

P.S. - Drones are fucking evil.

This is an awesome, bizarre version of Silent Night my uncle recorded ten years ago.

I seriously love it. Stick around for the vocals. Shit gets Radioheady.

I have a cool family.

Blake Fall-Conroy, “Minimum Wage Machine,” 2008-2010
This machine allows anyone to work for minimum wage for as long as they like.  Turning the crank on the side releases one penny every 4.97 seconds, for a total of $7.25 per hour.  This corresponds to minimum wage for a person in New York.  
This piece is brilliant on multiple levels, particularly as social commentary.  Without a doubt, most people who started operating the machine for fun would quickly grow disheartened and stop when realizing just how little they’re earning by turning this mindless crank.  A person would then conceivably realize that this is what nearly two million people in the United States do every day…at much harder jobs than turning a crank.  This turns the piece into a simple, yet effective argument for raising the minimum wage.

Please spread around this video of my friend Murf Meyer expressing his love for his lady Dianimal Kolsky. I know Murf and this is as heartfelt as it gets. I think this is a beautiful piece of video art that embraces the heartfelt and tears down the cynical. I think it’s an amazing and completely ridiculous tribute to true love and it nearly brought me to tears. Also, you get to see Murf with his hair down, both physically and emotionally.

This is so magical.

#Romnesia. This is the best. It should be shown in sketch classes as how to write the perfect button.
