"We were sitting around drinking wine at my house one night and the idea popped up that we were somewhat like the Spanish friars,” he said. “So we put on green friars’ robes and protested the spot and claimed it as a community nature park and we got the newspapers out there and everything and it was hilarious and delightful. Then we went to a Joshua Tree saloon after and sat around in our green friar robes drinking beer and planning revolutions."
Facebook is the community bingo hall of social networks
Twitter is the bar nobody goes to anymore because it’s too crowded
Tumblr is the only place that doesn’t make me want to jump off a bridge
The Next Four Months Are Gonna Be Fun
Hold on to your butts, kids.
"There’s a huge swath of new jobs created in the last three years or so. They’ll be around for… a while. Who knows how long! (Can’t wait till Vox goes public though!) It’s good, obviously, that young people have jobs where they can get some learnin’ and get paid and maybe write some things they care about. What I’ve noticed the last couple months though is that once they have that job for a year or three, there’s now nowhere for them to go. The requests for coffee dates I’m getting these days are less “How do I become a writer or reporter?” and are more “Okay I’ve been doing this a couple years now, and there’s literally nowhere for me to advance, what do I do?” You’re seeing longevity in blogging jobs for the first time ever since we created professional blogging. It’s not a job that one ages well with, for the most part. I mean, you go make cat gif listicles when you’re 50. Try that on for size."
Seriously, Choire for President.
This picture reminds me of home and the summer and friends and makes me feel intensely about all of those things at the same time.
I have a date tomorrow and I probably haven’t been on an honest to God date in over two or three years. What the hell do I do?
