After all, MFA grads are fairly easy to spot. For example, if you have an MFA degree, you usually teach at the college level for at least a few years; you have an incredible support system; you’re well read in both the classics and contemporary work; and if you’re worth your salt, Stranger Than Fiction with Will Ferrell and Maggie Gyllenhaal means more to you now than it did before you entered your writing program.

[No to all of this. I hope this is sarcasm. Girl, please. Incredibly support system…where the hell did you go to school? Clearly, I’m bitter. It’s cool -d*]

Adorable! Kinda agree with #22. Not taking that unless he also takes mine. Might as well make changing legal documents a PIA for both parties involved.

h/t to @theferocity I… the internet is a weird place, man.

This song is so weird to me. It has Dan Tyminski from Alison Krauss and Union Station singing. I dig it a lot, though.

When something really bad is going on in a culture, the average guy doesn’t see it. He can’t. He’s average. And is surrounded by and immersed in the cant and discourse of the status quo.
The big takeaway is: Snapchat is onto something, and it’s much bigger than sexting. The service is a reaction to the saturation of social networking and the the dominant interaction modes on Facebook and Twitter. It’s an immune response, nurtured in the tweaky rebelliousness of teenagedom, to the forces of Big Data, behavioral targeting, and the need to record every stupid little thing in the world. Snapchat might be the defining product of our technophilic, technoanxious age.
