A directionless cavalcade of things I find interesting.


The Litographs Tattoos Kickstarter campaign has taken a novel (GET IT?) approach to encouraging contributions: The first 2,500 backers will also reserve their place in the world’s longest (temporary) tattoo chain.

Litographs has broken up Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures In Wonderland into 2,500 temporary tats. Once they hit their goal, they’ll send the ink out for backers to apply, photograph and upload to their website. “Our goal,” they say, “is to recreate this iconic novel by showcasing every single word on the skin of 2,500 Kickstarter backers.” Which, OK, sounds a little gross — but I’m intrigued!

Also check out their free e-books. Really good stuff there: 


laughing at how CNN went into one of the looted businesses in Ferguson and spoke to the owner. the reporter started asking all these leading questions that were clearly setting up answers that expressed anger that their businesses were broken into. 

The owner was like “actually I just want justice for Mike Brown im not worried about material things”

I saw that, it was a fantastic response. She was all “we just have some broken windows, hardly anything was taken. What’s that compared to a life?” 

There was a great wisdom there, laid out simply. This lady should be in a book of proverbs or something.

Cecil interviews Night Vale CC President Sarah Sultan

I had this scene play out in my head while listening to episode 50, and just had to write it out.


We have with us today Sarah Sultan, president of the Night Vale Community College. Now, as President Sultan is a smooth, fist-sized river rock, she will communicate with me via telepathy, which, as everyone knows, cannot be transmitted over radio, as sound or despair can. Welcome to the show, President Sultan

[Ominous music plays]


Right… so, we’ll be right back with more from President Sarah Sultan after this message from our sponsors.



We return to our exclusive interview with Night Vale Community College President Sarah Sultan, who, I have discovered during the break, is not actually Night Vale Community College President Sultan, but is in fact simply a smooth, fist-sized river rock on my desk. Apparently placed here by the janitorial staff as a paperweight to keep my… um… “notes” from becoming scattered during the weekly station blood-stone disinfection.


I wish people still made mixes for other people.

My lady-friend and I made YouTube playlist mixes for each other.


i saw this on fandom secrets a long time ago but im gonna share it with u guys

if you ever feel scared by something like a creepypasta or a horror game and cant stop thinking abt it in the dark, imagine officer cosgrove from freakazoid pointing at it and telling them to cut it out
