After seeing Mad Max Fury Road I couldn't help but make this.

Being locked in a barbershop is certainly one way to go...

I wrote a song for my husband.  It's about love. And not killing people.
Enjoy!

SprinkleGate is currently a hotly contested debate among Android users, whereby their donut emojis have no sprinkles.  iOS and OSX have sprinkles, as do donut emojis on Twitter.  But Android has chosen to stick with the standard Unicode donut emoji which shows a chocolate glaze. Microsoft, always the last on the playground, has a strawberry glazed donut sans sprinkles.  http://emojipedia.org/doughnut/

Over on Noto there was a pull request filed to get sprinkles on the Android donut. The project member's response was that donuts in Unicode don't have sprinkles and thus the added sprinkles were non-standard.  https://code.google.com/p/noto/issues/detail?id=203

Samsung, LG, and other phone manufacturers who produce Android phones have sided with the pro-sprinkle factions and their emoji files include chocolate glaze with sprinkles. However, Nexus, the Google produced phones, have chosen to stick with non-sprinkled chocolate glazed.  People are pissed they don't have sprinkles.  

I've created this petition on Change.Org to get Google to add sprinkles to all donut emoji.  Make sprinkles the standard! https://www.change.org/p/google-inc-sprinkles-for-all-donut-emojis

My library is the coolest place ever.  I mean, which libraries have been picked up by Vice lately?
It’s wonderfully subversive for a government institution to teach people how to use Tor in a series called “Orwellian America.”
