Jaco Pastorius was a jazz bass player from Florida who changed the way people play the bass. He played a fret-less electric bass in the same lyrical way that Ornette Coleman played the clarinet. He played it like a soloist plays a sax. He would learn entire Beatles and Coltrane albums and play all the parts on bass. He played for Weather Report and Herbie Hancock and Joni Mitchell. He had bipolar disorder and it made it impossible for him to keep a job. Eventually he died homeless in Florida at only 35 after getting in a fight with a bouncer at a club. This video has Jaco talking about his music.
This is a silly mexican gunfighter based on yosemite sam. He is angry, short and has chapped lips and a giant nose. He curses in spanish and listens to ranchero music.
I love neckbeards. They are neurotic and have autism, bad hygiene and pee in bottles but they are some of the best people on the internet. Neckbeard tech support geeks love ponis and drunken chat rooms. They are forever alone and miserable but loyal, smart and good talkers behind a keyboard.
Operation KKK is an Anonymous-led effort to shut down the Ku Klux Klan. They have released a list of names that they say represent members of the KKK. This guy spreads rainbow laser beams of love instead of hate.
I love the Beatles. I have been a fan for as long as I can remember. Their movie Yellow Submarine is great. It has a subversive 70s stream of consciousness hippy imagination running wild narrative. The art director was Heinz Edelmann. RIP Mr. Edelmann. I love all of his psychedelic critters and inventions. They are so simple and perfect. All you need is love. And the internet. And spotify.
I listen to them on spotify almost daily. I like their later work the most with its ruthless inventiveness and sarcastic bent. It is hard to believe that 4 kids from England made so much world changing music.
Monopoly man has fallen on hard times. People aren’t buying board-games these days. It kind of reflects what has happened to western economies and their monopoly on getting rich. Monopoly Man Poor. Stock market crash 2018.
Paco the Mexican wants a hug. He is a lovable fatty with traditional clothes. Paco loves you with all of his fatty ectopic beating heart. I recently moved to Southern California and was surprised to be in a racial minority for a change. Bakersfield is incredibly Mexicanized. There are more Spanish language radio stations here than English and if you go to the DMV it is like being South of the Border. 🙂 This is a digital illustration of a man with a sombrero and poncho trying to give you a hug. Watch This.
A cat is placed in a steel box along with a Geiger counter, a vial of poison, a hammer, and a radioactive substance. When the radioactive substance decays, the Geiger detects it and triggers the hammer to release the poison, which subsequently kills the cat. The radioactive decay is a random process, and there is no way to predict when it will happen. Physicists say the atom exists in a state known as a superposition—both decayed and not decayed at the same time.
Until the box is opened, an observer doesn’t know whether the cat is alive or dead—because the cat’s fate is intrinsically tied to whether or not the atom has decayed and the cat would, as Schrödinger put it, be “living and dead … in equal parts” until it is observed.
In other words, until the box was opened, the cat’s state is completely unknown and therefore, the cat is considered to be both alive and dead at the same time until it is observed.
I love Uncle Sam — he is such a cool mascot. I remember when I was a little kid asking my dad if he was a real person. And if he was my grandma’s brother Sam. This is Uncle sam making a peace sign.
