I’m ordaining you the keeper of pre-holiday day drinking, thank you for being the realest of the real and knowing how to seemingly give no fucks (while actually having many, many fucks to give for those you care about). Let’s go to a Mets game this summer!
Many, many more parties in our future. Just remember: Always get more ice/beer/food than you need, 50% of your guests won’t show up, and if shit ever starts to hit the fan there’s a good chance you can take care of it without anyone noticing (especially if you have enough drinks and food to keep the crowd placated).

I managed to stave off tears all god damn day and this post was the one that tipped me. I have no idea what we were brainstorming at that beach (maybe Pringles?) but I will never forget that afternoon, just like I’ll never forget our honest SXSW conversations, our red room arguments, and our post-event bottles of… Read more
If Leslie and Greg are beginners at this then I am the pope.
I was wondering if anyone had a suggestion for smart, story-based puzzle games for PS3/4, 3DS, PC or mobile. Growing up I played games like Myst, Star Trek Judgment Rites, Journeyman Project, Titanic Adventure Out of Time, but I feel like most of the games I'm seeing now are either FPS or RPG. I've tried games like… Read more
Ryan and I are trying to bring back ripped jeans (did they ever go away?)
I've also found airplane mode is useful for resetting my connection when my Galaxy S5 shows connectivity but isn't able to download anything. I used to have to reset my phone in order to get the signal working again, but recently realized that turning Airplane mode on and off achieves the same result in a fraction of… Read more
Interesting, I hadn't heard any of that. Can you source your information? Where did you see the spectator's account that claims the brothers were unarmed?
Heh, I know. Trying to show proof of concept to a degree...any other forum this back and forth would have devolved to troll baiting on both ends. Instead I think we both walk away with a mutual understanding of each others' points, if not semi-agreement. The software will only ever be as good as the people sitting on… Read more
The irony certainly isn't lost, it just is what it is. I think you're trying to say we're being hypocritical, but hypocrisy would be attacking those who do it while secretly doing it ourselves. We do it openly and our editors frequently make reference to it (hence you even being able to have a conversation with me… Read more
Nick has addressed this before. Gawker's use of an international tax haven is simply standard practice, something that every large, sensible American business takes advantage of. Corporations have no morality when it comes to profits, so why would we handicap ourselves if it's perfectly legal and what everyone else… Read more
Yeah, Nick gives me shit for being so optimistic about advertising too sometimes, and he's as pipe dream as they come. But I've been banging this gong for a long time and I think we're starting to see some traction. 5 years ago if you told me the entire industry would finally begin move away from banner ads I would… Read more
