And now on #UselessMilestone day: 15,000 pins!
Yeay… I admit, it’s times like this that I question the use of my time (not to mention my sanity).
To my defense there is something oddly therapeutic in the act of pinning.
That said, I also find enjoyable the act of curating my boards to the point where tediously moving 100s of pins to new boards (or re-purposing old ones) feels good. Now THAT’S insane, I know it’s insane, and yet I still do it every week and feel happy about it.
Maybe it’s that I find joy in performing simple mindless tasks, maybe it’s that I’m crazy, or most likely it’s that the OCD fairies demand tribute.
Either way what I’m certain about, is that what begun as an exercise to move my picture collection online has turned into a guilty pleasure, one that I’m directly sharing with 5,000+ people.
Living in the future sure is weird.
I Think Facebook Got A Mike Trout-Like Deal On Oculus
To me, it’s pretty simple. Facebook is taking out an option on the future. And, in my view, it’s a pretty cheap option to boot. In some ways, it’s not unlike the deal the Los Angeles Angels (of Anaheim or whatever) just signed with Mike Trout.1
Yes, $2 billion is a lot of money. But it’s also roughly 1/8th of what Facebook just spent on WhatsApp. And it’s roughly 2x what the company spent on Instagram — and that has turned out pretty well so far. One of the better deals this decade, perhaps.2
Studio Trigger Delivers
It’s been nearly a year since I saw Little Witch Academia; a short that I absolutely loved. Shortly after that I read that the same studio was making their TV debut with a series called Kill la Kill in the fall of 2013.
It’s been a wild ride since then.
I just watched the RAW of the final episode, and while I could only comprehend about 50% of what they were saying it didn’t detract from it being an AWESOME conclusion to a great journey —and thank Haruhi the Almighty, it didn’t turn into a Gainax ending (I was worried there for a while).
Now to wait for the subtitled version, which I’m hoping to watch tomorrow to give my face muscles time to rest from all the time spent
grinning like a maniac *cough* smiling while watching experiencing the finale.
I’m really looking forward to whatever comes next from Studio Trigger.
