Man, there are like 500 things I want to write posts about lately and I’ve had like zero time to tackle any of them. Stupid real life getting in the way of posting outlandish steroid accusations and unnecessary rankings/lists of things!
Anyway, the biggest news in the last week was probably that awesome Super Bowl, in which the Patriots picked off a late-game pass attempt by Russell Wilson and caused Richard Sherman to do this:
Ahhhh, the schadenfreude — how delicious it is! I could watch this on loop all day long.
Anyway, I’ve got some more Sherman stuff coming up (spoilers: it involves his ultra-pretentious MMQB article from last week) and I’ve got some Super Bowl commercial thoughts too.
I guess this isn’t much of a post, now that I think about it. Oh well.
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays, everyone. Your gift, besides the amazingly irrelevant content that gets posted here on a semi-regular basis, is this picture I made a few years ago. I think it sufficiently covers all of the holiday bases.
Merry Everything, everyone!
It’s been a while since we’ve done one of these, but I was perusing the ol’ spam queue this afternoon and it looks like we have a new contender for “JSG’s Favorite Spam Comment Ever!” (All winners receive a small bronze trophy in the shape of a can of Spam, much like this one, and a coupon for One Free Hug from yours truly.) Let’s hit that blockquote:
“Hurrah, that’s what I was exploring for, what a stuff! present here at
this blog, thanks admin of this site.”
What a stuff indeed! I like this one the best because it’s just so short and sweet, and in a weird way it feels the most earnest of them all — usually spam comments are trying to get you to pay for some SEO service or buy knock-off Nikes, but this one just seems like a small Malaysian child went online for the first time and wanted to tell us we were doing a good job. Awwww. Thanks, small Malaysian child. That warms our icy robot hearts. Readers like you are why we do this.
GG turned 100 posts old today! This is technically Post #101, since the 100th was my total throwaway post where I came up with all those innuendos. Either way, ’tis truly a milestone for ST and I. It’s a real banner day in the glitchgoals world.
Anyway, thanks for putting up with our (OK, my) insane ramblings and our wildly accusatory posts about NFL steroid usage. ST and I have been at this since July 2012, so here’s to another 100 posts of questionably entertaining content within the next 2.5 years!
How many tries has it taken you to figure out what’s happening here? I’m looking at it for the 30th time and I still haven’t gotten past Mario. Image via Reddit.
My brother and I have had career paths as diametrically opposed as…huh, I can’t even think of a metaphor for this one. But it’s true: He’s spent very little time in a traditional office environment, I’ve been in one almost exclusively; I’m confined to pretty strict office hours, he’s just responsible for getting things done before a given deadline, no matter when that may be. Such is life when one of you is primarily an artist and the other is in finance. As a result, it’s possible people like him won’t fully appreciate the point of this post, but I’m going for it anyway (especially since I know ST is gonna feel me):
The traditional office structure, from the length of the workday to the types of interactions that take place to the pervasively toxic social atmosphere, is complete bullshit — and if your office is anything like mine, it’s actively harming your best employees.
