porn studies

You can buy the whole thing for just £80!

DensityDuck

The porn study is tagged with "prosumer". I don't k ow whether to be amused or concerned at the notion of a pornography prosumer...

Hal

Tiny tools.

May actually be somewhere else, otherwise just go for the entirety.

svh

Um...

I keep telling myself they're doing the conga.

David

May actually be somewhere else,

Link fixed, thanks.


I keep telling myself they’re doing the conga.

I think it’s the off-camera chat that tips it over the edge.

Linkclump extension -
It's best use: lassooing all the links in the friday roundup and opening them in thirty tabs simultaneously

Watcher In The Dark

The snow in Doctor Zhivago... I still can't get over how they physically spread the crushed marble over all that area. There were some busy Spaniards sprinkling it but even more so, fearing it up afterwards. Some of them would be on the horizon, shovelling away...

Watcher In The Dark

For fearing, read clearing. Though maybe I would fear shovelling all that white stuff up, too

Steve 2 - A Touch of Stevil

Love that slice of Maggie nostalgia.

Some of the best bits:

* Early 80's SJW's screaming at Young Conservatives, who in turn just laughed at them

* The narrator describing the celebrity guests at the Tory Youth rally as "blond superathletes"... a few seconds later, ginger snooker player Steve Davis appears.

* Bob Monkhouse

* "Margaret Thatcher vibrating with crusading passion"

* Kenny Everett - "Let's bomb Russia!" :)

Heh. Yes, it captures something of the time. And dear God, the hair.

When I saw the "conga" vid over at Ace's place, I thought, "I wonder if David Thompson will find this for Ephemera?" I needn't have worried.

Oh, and SMOD puts out campaign GIF.

Imperfect produce

It's a great idea, well worth a go. I just have visions of hipsters firing off lawsuits when they're not imperfect enough, though.

Can there be anything worse than trying to show how hipster-green you are to your mates, opening your box of supermarket-reject veg to find they're almost mainstream?

O/T, but over on Twitter, Laurie Penny has attended a US sporting goods store. Hilarity is already ensuing...

Researchers hope to drill through crust to the Mantle at the crusts thinnest point

I wonder which crusts they'll be drilling...

Why parents rarely want their children to be artists, part 16.

Or arts journalists.

When Laurie lies, does she realise that other people can tell? Or does she simply not care?

There were many guns for sale IRL. I could have just...bought one.

    * Makes name as journalist.
    * Spends a whole year living in the US while studying Nieman Foundation for Journalism at Harvard University.
    * Expresses surprise at finding guns on sale in a shop.
David

Expresses surprise at finding guns on sale in a shop.

And note that when her bullshit is challenged by someone who knows quite a bit about US gun laws, Laurie simply changes the subject.

Nikw211

Speaking of challenging bullshit in another sense, I’ve just come across quite an astonishing display of hope-nobody-notices dishonesty:

    “In the film ‘Hanging in the Woods’ the viewer can witness the breakdown between performance and reality as the indented performance goes wrong and the performer is stuck hanging from the tree without being able to free herself or any visible means of help or escape.”

The first two minutes gives you the idea, but the best part comes at about 08:18.

It’s a Weekend treat.

"Probing the mantle."

    In early December, the drill ship JOIDES Resolution will depart Colombo, Sri Lanka, and head for a spot in the southwestern Indian Ocean known as Atlantis Bank. There, it will lower a drill bit and try to screw it through 1.5 kilometres of rock, collecting a core sample as it goes. If all goes well, future expeditions — not yet scheduled or funded — will return and finalize the push into the mantle.

Uh-oh.
