So get this right; an extremist hate group brutally murders an innocent man, presumably due to their stupid beliefs. The media propagates this in an intentionally inflammatory way, causing extremists from the other side to become enraged, causing more hatred, and encouraging more violence.
Here’s the punchline: no reputable sources have reported that the attack is from a specific extremist group. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
We are doomed as a species.

Why It's Dumb to Abandon Tumblr Today
Since it became clear that Yahoo was going to buy Tumblr, Wordpress saw the number of blog imports from Tumblr rise from about 400 an hour to more than 72,000. That’s a ridiculous jump. and also a stupid one. Here’s why you shouldn’t leave Tumblr just because it’s under new management.
With regards to R.A.M.
Imagine you’re at a Halloween party. You see an old friend across the room, and you think “oh hey, I remember this guy, he’s cool, I’ll go talk to him”. So you walk across the room, and try and hold a conversation, but he’s dressed as someone from the disco era and is acting annoyingly in…
Well, if you asked for my 2 pence on the matter (which I know you didn’t):
I can see why people think this about Random Access Memories. It’s a bit weird.
Okay, that’s an understatement, it’s reeeeally weird.
At the same time, it’s exactly what I needed in my music library. I’ve spent the last year on an EDM binge, and while that shows no sign of stopping it’s so refreshing to take an hour-and-a-bit break for some 70s disco with modern production.
I get why people are disappointed - it sounds little like previous Daft Punk* in many respects. If I think about it that way I could feel the same - I fucking love old Daft Punk*, and I wish there was more of it - but at the same time I am in no way remorseful of my purchase.
This wasn’t the album I was expecting, it wasn’t the album I thought I’d be able to listen to and enjoy, and for precisely those reasons it’s brilliant to me. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed damn near every track.
Maybe their next album will return to their ‘roots’, though I doubt it. There’s already 5 albums and a film soundtrack of ‘old’ Daft Punk*, and that’s enough for me.
*I feel it should be noted that I considered shortening Daft Punk to it’s leading characters, a D and a P. Then I realised writing about my love for DP wouldn’t quite come across as I intended.
Computers, a haiku.
What are computers?
I mean, I study them, but
What the fuck are they?
