The worst part of Ironic isn't that it isn't, it's that it would sound better if Geddy Lee was singing the screamy bits.

There's a particularly succulent deliciousness in being able to reply to an archly-worded email that the reason someone isn't getting what they want is because of a failure on their part to perform a necessary action, and that we're just waiting on them.

Are you reading my pending zendesk queue at work?

It's like that movie Desk Set where something goes wrong with the newfangled computer and it gives everybody pink slips, even the president.

So apparently some ex-Tumblr employees have said this is something that was mandated by Verizon when they got bought out and it's been in the works for awhile (the whole pedophile ring thing just sped it up). Basically, Verizon can't sell ads on the site as long as there is porn on it and they really want to cash in on what they view as the valuable properties; namely, the extensive fandoms and Social Justice communities.

Considering the backlash and the plans for numerous communities to switch to Pillowfort.io, it's quite apparent Verizon just shot itself in the foot.

I just sent my main guitar in to either get refretted (partially or fully) or get the frets dressed. I'm so excited for it to be back but nervous that my baby is in someone else's hands. I do all my own setups and electronics repairs, but this was too much for me to handle. After 15 years too many frets were flat and buzzy.

Pretty good day, made three Postmates deliveries...but while I HATE looking a gift horse in the mouth, I STILL feel a bit bad about delivering food...from a mall food-court...to people barely a few blocks away. Oddly enough its the food court part I find MORE silly, like I could get food from ALL over the city, Arch, Chestnut, South street, PLENTY of great streets with PLENTY of great restaurants...and y'all chose Chipotle at the mall? THIS was what you decided?! You could've spent 35 dollars on literally ANYTHING, and you chose NOT JUST Chipotle, but Chipotle at the MALL?!

But even THAT yahoo doesn't compare to the OTHER mall client, who ordered...A DRINK! NOW-I don't know if you know anything about bicyling through Philadelphia, but there are a BILLION potholes, and not every SaladWorks has master bag-craftsmen who made me a safe bag for said drink. And she freaking KNEW it wasn't a bottle either, the freaking MONSTER! STOP ORDERING DRINKS THAT CAN EASILY BE SPILLED! NOT EVERY BICYCLE HAS A FRONT BASKET ON IT!

I'd feel worse about mocking my clients if not for the fact that I almost never get tipped, so fuck it.

I'm wondering what kept Tumblr from out-patreoning Patreon. There are so many independent creators who use Tumblr to connect with their followers. If they'd integrated crowd funding into their system, they could have made a mint.

Probably the same reason why Tumblr blogs aren't allowed to freaking profit off of the multiple ads that they are going to put on the site!

"Hey, rando anime minor character! Can you explain X?"

"No, I don't really know anything about X."

(Proceeds to explain X in excruciating detail)

This scene brought to you by every anime.

Got a call from my former employer yesterday...surprise surprise, turns out with me gone things are going even worse than they were, and they're now considering firing my former boss. Would I be willing to come back if he's gone?
...ehhhh, not so sure.

My boarder fucking loves Tiktok. He's the childest manchild you'll ever meet. It's fucking pathetic.

ONTO WHY I REALLY CAME TO POST IN THIS THREAD.

Recent Red Letter Media video has reminded me that Our Robocop Remake Scene 27 is still the funniest thing ever achieved by human beings. I won't link it here, because, well....you'll have to Youtube it yourself to see.
