I’m always sympathetic to labor (perhaps more so when that labor does actual labor, and not necessarily political fan-fiction), and it sounds like The New Guy is out of his depth, but at the same time, none of this is really shocking to me. Corporate does corporate stuff. Corporate stuff is frequently dumb.
There are puppies. There is Keanu. There is Keanu making a joke about how gravity is why he’s so down to earth, while playing with puppies.
And made Keanucon?
That’s 794 ads being blocked, resulting in 796 console warnings and 385 console alerts. My page froze for three minutes while it was counting up. The last time I stopped adblocking (out of guilt) every fifth new link I clicked got hijacked and redirected me to a (potentially) malicious site. I like my GMG hate reads…
Humbly submitted by member S. MacIntosh, 27 August, the year of our Keanu, 2018.
I’m on vacation for the next week, and I am using that time to bake stuff. I am a pretty shit cook, but I love bake. Mostly, I love to eat things that I bake. I’ve already made oatmeal cookies, and I’m softening butter to make brioche. I’m also thinking of trying to make puff pastry from scratch, to do a brie en cro…
Here is some text to get to the link with the link to the vid of Keanu on a horse. Because we need Keanu on a horse. It’s okay to picture yourself on that horse, too, CT. I know I am.
It’s my last full day in France. I miss you all, but there’s cheese, so it’s okay. I’ve drunk gallons of wine, I can get by on my French, and the food is soooooo good. Stupid kinja won’t let me upload a photo, but I’ll share when I get home.
It’s here. I’m leaving for France on Sunday afternoon. I’m all ready to go, all I have to do is pack and make some calls. But I have a funny story.
“I know we normally hate our commenters, but we’re too Jezebel to find/call sources, so can you do the legwork for us?”
A middle school student in Noblesville, Indiana opened fire with two handguns this morning. He was tackled by a teacher, who was injured, as was a 13 year old girl.
Oh fuck off David Cross. You, too, AV Club.
So after all my bitching about how most of GMG never leaves the office, I read this piece by Whitney Kimball -
As some of you know, I’m in Indiana. I live in one of three liberal dots in the state (Indianapolis, Gary, Bloomington). We’ve got a useless democrat in the Senate (Joe Donnelly) and he is unlikely to be primaried, so he’ll be running against one of the winners below in the fall. The Republican primary is on Tuesday.…
Happy Monday, Clashtalkers! I’m feeling smug about starting my day five hours before Jez does. Let’s have some coffee and pettycakes!
I’m going to France in July for work (it’s a tough life, let me tell you. I strongly advise working for a French company.) I haven’t done any international travelling since the early 90s, and I assume a lot of things have changed.
Thanks for the privs, BP, I promise to use these new powers for good, or to be delightfully petty, or to talk about why people should not wear flip flops outside of a communal shower or the ocean/beach/pool.
