Are you good at rolling blunts? I mean really good? Waka Flocka Flame wants to talk to you.
The rapper isn't using a headhunter. He's interviewing applicants for the position of fulltime blunt roller himself.

Somewhere there is some 40 year olde ex-hippie with a wife and kids and a morgage going "Just when I think I am out of the game they pull me back in..."

How badly do you want your soul to die? Bad enough to read this shit? Seriously, Nick Shore - the inside of your head is pure cancer.
Amy Pascal made some mistakes. Nobody is going to dispute that. But here’s at least one good decision she made: turning down some aging tech schmuck’s pitch to turn Spider-Man into an EDM-loving, Tough Mudder-participating, humblebragging shithead.

Fuck positivity - let's be jerkfaces for a little bit!

Avengers: Age of Ultron comes out in a week and supposedly it's just as good as every other Marvel movie (which is to say 'not shit for the most part'). But nothing lasts forever! Someday Marvel will royally fuck one of these up and nrrds across the internet will cry a river of tears in which their dreams will drown and die a sad death.

What upcoming Marvel movie has the greatest chance of being total, unremitting vomit?

To me, that's the only version of Bullseye that matters. "Peanut?"

OH GREAT.

Been nice knowing you guys.
As tourists to Yellowstone stroll between 300 active geysers, they are treading one of the planet's largest time bombs. It's bigger than previously thought.

Snagged a two-foot-high stack of books from Half Price Books last night; lots to read, but this is Priority One.

One of the fun things about used books - the previous owner left a bunch of little annotations in pencil. Not a ton, and easily removable, but underlined sections with HA HA written in the margins. It's like having a goofy commentary track from some complete stranger included in the book.

The rest of my Half Price Books haul from earlier this week.

As usual, gotta pay the #noahtax  ...

ADQ speaks for itself - they had a bagged selection of issues from the mag's later years (including the very last issue) for a mere $5. 

Red Storm Rising - Not a big Clancy fan, but I like this one - it's a less character-driven piece focused on the outbreak of WWIII and how that business goes down. I've only read a handful of his books but this one's my favorite. Looking forward to reading it again (after which I expect I feel a strong magnetic pull to run Twilight: 2000 again...)

Ilium - I'm not a Dan Simmons fanboy per se, but what I've read (Hyperion, Hyperion Cantos, The Terror) I really, really liked. I have only a vague notion what this one's about but I was in the mood for a big slab of Dan Simmons so...yeah...

Her Majesty's Spymaster - This one's been on my radar for a while now. Briefly, it's a historical roundup of Sir Francis Walsingham, who was apparently Queen Elizabeth's 'M' - helping to run Britain's spy networks during the 16th century. I mean - that just reeks cool, right?

Black Horse Riders - I'm always a sucker for a good military history tome, and attentive readers will know that the Blackhorse was the armored regiment that  Hammers Slammers author David Drake served with during Vietnam (and subsequently was the inspiration for many of the Slammers stories.) That alone was reason for me to grab it.

Count Brass series - I've become something of a Moorcock collector...every time I see earlier paperbacks of his works I grab them. Which isn't to say I don't intend to read them, I mean dude's probably my all-time favorite author. But my Moorcock shelf is getting pretty heavy at this point :)

+Alex Mayo Wow, yeah! That's right! But what computer did I do it on? What's the date on that thing? I pretty much had to do that on a PC with a 24 bit graphics card, probably in Fractal Design Painter. I'm betting I did that in black and white, and the red was added as a spot color in layout.

I had no idea Marvel was doing a subscription box. Pretty tempted.

Whoever came up with the 'You won't believe what happened next...' clickbait headline and anyone continuing to use it needs to die in a fire.

Repeatedly.

Forever...

Well, technically Vampi's an alien too - but Alien vs Aliens doesn't have the same ring to it I guess.

I keep seeing this being passed around and honestly it just makes me sad. Like - that's some cute passive-aggression but I think you may have found the wrong person to live with, bro.
 
DAT BASEMENT.
Imgur user "ohhaibroadcast" got told by his girlfriend that he already had enough geeky stuff in the basement, so she didn't want any of it upstairs. Instea

I keep seeing tentacle monster pics show up in the Lovecraft community I'm part of on FB and while there's no denying that tentacle monsters are part of the Lovecraft idiom I feel like the tendency to reducing his work to this stuff kinda misses the boat. It's hard to put the genie back in the bottle but man, formless existential dread isn't what it used to be, huh?
