Recent things I’ll want to find again, filed under geekiness.
- Most people were first enamored by Superman or Spider-Man, but my first comic love was Static. It’s bizarre to think that all of the character’s creators have passed away way too young.
- This is not new by any stretch, but its still great. A fan song about the dreamy awesomeness of David Duchovny. I hope Beta Test covers this at some point.
- Apparently the Namer (the person who names the stuff) at google is a big metalhead.
- You know what MC Escher needs more of? No, not staircases. Star Wars. And legos.
- Geeky for its sci-fi-ness: A report came out that during Madonna’s MDNA tour (note the letters) has a sterilisation crew that removes all of the singer’s “hair, skin or saliva.” This is apparently to prevent anyone from being able to copy her DNA. That is, obviously, insane. I still chose to consider the implications of what it may be like in the future to have genetic copies of people created. It sounds almost like pop singers could be bred like thoroughbred race horses. Rather than use the old useless pop star as a sire, one could just create copies. Nevermind holograms of dead rappers: imagine 70 years from now a 19 year old clone of Justin Bieber singing in Las Vegas created via the DNA contained in his sweat.
