In April, Google brought a new confidential mode to Gmail’s desktop version, allowing you to send emails that automatically expire. The idea being that if you use Gmail to send confidential information (which let’s face it, isn’t the safest idea), then using the confidential mode will make that decision a little bit safer.

Hashtags have defined pop culture. You spot them all over social media, and now many of them have become popular phrases, especially when they highlight blackness: #BlackBoyJoy, #BlackLivesMatter, #GrowingUpBlack, and the list goes on.
#Melanin is a shining example of a hashtag-turned-movement. Not only is it a fresh and delicious word to use in place of “skin tone,” but it’s a...View more »
Guild Wars fan Enayla has outdone herself here. Not only has she gone and made a fantastic Asura costume, but she built the accompanying Golem as well. A Golem that’s nine-feet-tall.
The Golem can’t walk (at least not yet, anyway), but it has been wired so that its gems light up. Enayla can also clamber up behind it and get in, so it’s more than just widow dressing.

The third Thursday in November is upon us! If you’re one of the brave people visiting a black family as a single and childless person, you need to devise a strategy for dealing with nosy people. Don’t think you need a strategy? Well, what are you going to do when Nana gives you a look that says “You should have a baby in those arms instead of that store-bought pie”? Lucky for you, I’ve...View more »
I was ready for this all to be about Novak Djokovic. Novak Djokovic, having reclaimed the No. 1 ranking, was ready for this to be all about Novak Djokovic. His level of play over the last half of the season, and specifically over the last week, is a psychoactive substance . Sunday marked the end of the ATP Finals, the year-end event that pits the season’s eight most successful players against...View more »
Apparently 20th Century Fox has declared this Alien Day (I guess because of LV-426, the planet from the original Alien where the ship and creatures were discovered—to-day is April 26, or 4.26). To celebrate, they’ve released a short starring Noomi Rapace and Michael Fassbender:
I’m not sure if any of this is footage that will be included in Alien Covenant. It seems like the sequel one would...View more »
While pedaling to work I spotted a fairly rare thing in Finland. It seems to be from last year model of Unos and registered to Finland some months after the production had already ended.
The sticker in the rear window is saying “vahva menestys” which means “strong success”. Such slogans were very popular here but they have now vanished. Someone has removed one letter and now it’s saying “strong...View more »
Black Angel is legendary among Star Wars fans, but also fans of 1980s sword-and-sorcery movies. This short film about a knight returning from the Crusades, who has to enter a mystical realm and rescue a princess, was directed by Empire Strikes Back art director Roger Christian. And it was shown before ESB in Europe and Australia.
Black Angel has been lost for decades, but a print was...View more »
Ted Cruz grew out a beard and the world recoiled in disgust. Now, Cruz claims that his “good friend” (definitely real) who is conveniently abroad knows a rabbi (definitely real) who said that he likes Cruz’s beard:
Cruz claims that the rabbi elaborated on his (definitely real) approval of the beard by saying in a (definitely real) quote, “It gives Cruz a Talmudic & Rabbinic look & presence...View more »
The NBA has successfully branded itself as the professional sports league that embraces progressive politics and the individual freedoms of its players—the “woke” counterpoint to the NFL. You don’t have to be very cynical to see the intentionality behind this.
The National Football League has a lock on the sort of people who politicians refer to as “real Americans.” They’ve invested millions...View more »

Taking a break from car things because wisdom teeth pulling this morning, still did 931 stuff yesterday. A generous 944 enthusiast allowed me to take as much of the interior of one of his 944 parts cars after work and said I could come back for other interior bits I might be missing. I got all the carpet to fill the floors (have to clean 6 years of rallyX wins tho).
And started the front...View more »
