What happens when you run the lyrics to the theme song from “The Fresh Prince of Bel Air” through every language on Google Translate? Well, this. Enjoy. Apricot.
If I don’t show up to work tomorrow, it’s because the FBI has arrested me, thrown me in jail and confiscated all my stuff. I just got an email from FBI director Robert Mueller III. The subject line of the email is as follows:
“Attn: This is to inform you that we the fbi have a warrant to arrest you if we dont hear from you immediately,this is the final warning you are going to receive from the fbi office do you get me? I hope youre understand how many times this message has been sent to you. We have warned you so many times and you have decided to ignore our e-mails we have been instructed to get you arrested immediately, and today if you fail to respond back to us with the payment then, we will close your bank account and jail you and all your properties will be confiscated by the fbi.Robert Mueller, III FB I Director”
Nukemap is a handy online app that allows you to rain some nuclear annihilation down on your hometown (or any town for that matter). Simply input the GoogleMaps location you’d like to destroy and select the historical payload you want to unleash. (Do you feel like the dainty 16-kiloton “Little Boy” or the whopping 3.3-megaton Chinese ICBM today?) Then, push the button and see if your neighborhood survives. Probably not. It’s scary and fun ... and educational too, I guess.
Last week, I tracked down comment from New Mexico’s representatives and senators on the Stop Online Piracy Act and its twin, the Protect IP Act.
Rep. Ben Ray Luján, who represents Santa Fe and northern New Mexico, was signed on as a cosponsor of SOPA. A few minutes ago, his spokesperson Andrew Stoddard sent word that Luján was no longer supporting the measure:
You’ve probably heard that Wikipedia, Reddit, Boing Boing, Mozilla, TwitPic, WordPress and others will go dark tomorrow. Politico estimates about 7,000 sites will participate in the blackout.
There are two pretend guvs on Twitter.
At least, the Alibi hopes they're pretend. Because no one should outlaw Don Schrader's booty shorts. Our official editorial policy is firmly in favor of those shorts. Anonymous sources confirm: The other apparel option is nekkidness.
Like a bumbling discoverer from centuries past, last week I stumbled on a populated continent: netlabels.org, a catalog of labels offering free mp3 downloads. You can shovel through the heap of costless audio by genre. There are 500 categories, each housing anywhere from one to 100+ labels. Those labels harbor scores of musicians and release their cuts on the web, no charge.
Now you can get intimate with even more bands than your compatriots, which is vital to reproductive success.
The Picture of Dorian Gray is a classic Gothic horror novel by Oscar Wilde. It’s also a nifty little web game. Cute little Dorian is aging at a rapid pace. You’d better solve a series of puzzles quickly, or the dude is gonna expire of old age. The title has “Chaper 1” in it, so we can assume more of these will be on their way. This one’s (very) short, but sweet.
According to today’s top Google search terms, human beings are more concerned with zombie attacks than severe weather. That means something. Not sure what. But it means something.
