off topic open thread

Friday semi-random image dump and open thread

If we’re going to live in a world that’s utterly surreal, why can’t it look more like this?

By David Futrelle

Someone I follow on Twitter recently did a thread of oddball images she’s collected in her photo roll over the last few years, presented without context or explanation. I thought I’d do the same, in the form of a post. Needless to say, I’m not necessarily endorsing the messages of any of these, insofar as they have messages.

Also: OPEN THREAD. It’s been another busy week. Discuss whatever you want.

Hey, has anybody here ever heard the song “The Ugly Truth”, by Louis Logic? It’s really appropriate to the current political climate, that’s for sure. I made a music video of it featuring offensive cartoons (purely for satirical intent, of course)! TW: pretty much everything.

I know there’s so much crap to deal with in the world today, but if anyone can find time to sign this petition I’d be eternally grateful.

Warning: it’s a grim story, but there’s some cute lion pictures.

I tried just now, Alan, but oops “You signed on September 26, 2018” I had forgot :-s

The photos are lovely, but yup the story is a sorry one. Just adding as a fyi to anyone who might hesitate to click through: all the visual information is fine, there are no horrible images on the page.

Heh yeah, I know that feeling. Of course I’m now at that stage that I forget what I went into a room for and then when I get back I’m like “Oh yeah, fire extinguisher.”

But much thanks for signing.

I feel oddly pleased that I was able to recognize the top image–at least, recognize it as having come from the “Baroness” series; I had to use Google to determine that it was specifically the cover for the seventh novel, FLICKER OF DOOM. (“The Baroness” was a series of paperback novels published back in the 1970s, attributed to house name Paul Kenyon. Basically, it was “Modesty Blaise” with more sex, more violence, and less intelligence.)

@sarah_kay_gee, I believe in you. You can beat up that cancer or whatever-it-is! I mean gosh you wear an avocado on your head, if that isn’t evidence enough that you got this I don’t know what is. I’m a scientist, you can trust me on that.
