She's also working on a game with her frequent collaborator Brenda Neotonomie, who also played a crucial role in developing the Twine collection. "It's about two sisters on a purple ocean. Imagine the hypertext structure of my twines but with gorgeous 3D landscapes. It has necrocoral reefs, islands in the sky, sexy coffins. We give the people what they want," says +Porpentine.
Porpentine's dystopian interactive fiction gets collected in a bundle called Eczema Orifice Angel.

Relevant to my interests, and probably yours.
 
This is brilliant. In her quest to create the perfect framework for understanding haters, Ann Friedman has created  the disapproval matrix. 
Now, when you receive feedback that falls into the top two quadrants, you should take their comments to heart and figure out how to address them. Even if you decide to ignore them, make sure you do so consciously. The kiss of death is to decide unconsciously (and all of us do that).

Even more critically, if you are "blessed" with feedback from the bottom two quadrants cue Taylor Swift and go... haters gonna hate hate hate!

Let me also plug self-awareness. Sometimes it is difficult to see if the feedback is in the bottom two or the top two. This is when any investment you've made in being self-aware (honestly, genuinely, critically, with all in the love for yourself) will pay off big.

If you are not self-aware, or don't trust yourself, just find someone close to you and they'll tell you which quadrant the feedback belongs to.

I'm seeing Mad Max: Fury Road tomorrow, which is probably when most of you are planning to see it for the third or fourth time.
Given all the chatter about it, one might suspect that I'll be looking forward to going, "oh, now I get what you guys were talking about!". But I strongly suspect it'll be the opposite - I think I know what you're talking about now, and tomorrow after watching it I'll be all wtf were you ppl on about all this time

Reminiscent of Key and Peele's East/West Bowl sketches, and the increasingly improbable names of the players.

If this is not an insidious viral marketing campaign, Return of Kings is missing out on a very lucrative business opportunity to squeeze money from Warner Bros. in exchange for making people like me really excited to see it out of spite.
So you may have heard vague rumors that there's a new Mad Max film coming out. You also may have heard that it stars Charlize Theron as a shaven-headed postapocalyptical badass named Furiosa alongs...

My burrowing tusk is a bit dull, but I'm in Alberta. Lake season doesn't start until June anyway, so I still have time to unpack the ol' steel rasp.
