Evidently, I am not indispensable to fandom

The other night, I came up with the line:

One does not simply warg into Hodor.

It was a variation to a comment on walking into him that I’d seen. I felt very clever, as it nicely sums up the implications of Bran Stark’s repeated takings-over of the big guy.

So I went to a search engine to see if anybody else had come up with this, and not only were there dozens of hits, there was already somebody selling shirts with it.

just john remixing Negativland - The Letter and The Numeral

The Letter and The Numeral is my second response to Negativland’s release of their master tracks for their single ‘the letter U and the numeral 2’ for the likes of us to remix.

This is more sample-oriented, using some Ableton tricks.

Turnaround Time

I gotta wonder.

When the Yo app was introduced, how long did it take for somebody to release an Oy one?  Hours?  Minutes?

just john, remixing Negativland - The Letter U and the Numeral 2 -- jj remix

In honor of Casey Kasem’s passing, Negativland have released their master tracks for their single ‘the letter U and the numeral 2’ for the likes of us to remix.

This is my effort, not all that inventive, but that spoken version of the lyrics just cracks me up.

Game of Thrones S4 finale

That skeleton attack? 

It was the first thing in this entire series that looked and felt like something right out of a D&D module.

… and people wonder why we Comcast customers are so pissed off.
Actually, that’s a total lie.  Nobody wonders that.  People who don’t have Comcast don’t care, and those of us who do don’t have to wonder.

The Universe is trying to tell me something.
This is on Main Street of Poughkeepsie, NY.  It was the “House of Cards” and I used to shop there, decades ago.

Only a bit over half the respondents thought their generation was particularly unique. Of those respondents, 6 percent of the Baby Boomer contingent answered the question ‘What makes your generation unique?’ with, simply, ‘Baby Boomers.’ And that has to be the most meta, most Boomer thing ever uttered by any Boomer.

 From a Slate article on a Pew survey.

As a late Boomer, I’m surprised there wasn’t the massive reply, “The first generation to grow up knowing there were live nukes aimed at us, ready to launch.”

That always seemed the defining characteristic to me.
