Recent movies, Singularity edition

How did I end up seeing four Singularity movies in a row? Normally I'd say "bad decision-making", but three of them were actually good:

The Machine: Military reconstructive prosthetics lead to accidental hive-minding. Very pretty, nice effects. Naked robot fu.

Her: Siri is a really great girlfriend, until she ascends. People are remarkably supportive of someone dating their phone (that's how you know it's science fiction). It's way better than I expected it to be.

Transcendence: This was complete bullshit. Fuck this movie.

The Congress: Lawyers ruin everything, including the Singularity, which looks exactly like Toontown. This movie is bizarre and absolutely fantastic. It never occurred to me that Chuck Jones might be the architect of our drug-addled post-physical existence. That whole "lawyers ruin everything" thing was a given, though.

BREAKING: ankle-biting script kiddies cause me minor inconvenience

Feedly under denial of service attack

2:04am PST -- Criminals are attacking feedly with a distributed denial of service attack (DDoS). The attacker is trying to extort us money to make it stop. We refused to give in and are working with our network providers to mitigate the attack as best as we can.

We are working in parallel with other victims of the same group and with law enforcement.

I would be remiss were I not to point out that aforementioned minor inconvenience is only possible because you people -- yes, you -- have decided that you prefer centralized services with big, gaping, candy-like single points of failure over the kind of decentralized infrastructure that is actually implicit in RSS. You have to actually work at it to break the design in this way.

Zalgo on dating

baeddelbitch:

Date a girl who eats souls. Date a girl who slides through the cracks between people's nightmares, rising like smoke from their terror filled, sightless darting eyes. Who has teeth like knives and eyes of glowing yellow, bisected by elliptical pupils that contain constellations you've never seen before. Date a girl who licks her lips and opens her mouth eight sizes too wide, who's tongue can pierce your heart and wrap around your spine. Date a girl who's true name, unpronounceable and able to summon her from the void, is written in The Book Of The Unbidden, wrapped in human leather and penned in the blood of babies. Date a girl who makes you scream silently in your own mind Da̧̼̝͓͐̽͐̔t̛̠͕͉͔̋̿̑e"̛̘͙͎̍̀͠ ̧͚̤̙͌̾̿͝a͔̦͕̭͑͋̐̉ ̞̪̥̹̿̓͋̕g̛͈̺̗̘̿̋͝i͎̫̘̹͆͆͌͝ř̙̟̥̼͆̀̾l̠̭̺̤̃̆̈́͝ "̯͔͓͐͋̇̿ÿ̛̗̟̣͚́͗͘o͉̤̬̜̔̀̔̎ư͚̜͇̠͒͊͘ ̧̥̦̰̔̾̽͊ç̣̘̼͒͋̆͑à"̬͍̜͑̽͘n̙̼̥͇̓́̄̑ǹ̞̠̦̝̇͗͝ǫ̻̩͈͋̄̇̊t̖̙͕̑̈́̄ͅ "͇̖̖͗́͐̈́e̳̼͍̿͋̀͋ͅs̨̖̠̱̀̃̃̈́ċ̖̺̻͖͋̅͠a̼̭̜͉͂̀̌̈́p͍͈͓͂̾͜͝͝ĕ̻͈̙͉̿͘͝ ̧̗̻̥̾̄̅̈́f̨̛̻̬̟͋̓̽ŕ͓̲͉̥̿̊̊ǒ͕̻̳̺͊̇͐ḿ"͖̻̞͘͘͠ ̘̼̲͓̏̅̽̇ṅ̼̗̺̖̐̌͠ơ̙̥͔̣̌̇̔ ̛͇̻̜̠̒͗̍m͓̝̬͍͂̌̅́â͖̘̙͙̄̿̒ț̳̲͙͑̈́̅͝ţ̰̙̹̇͑̒͠ȩ͈͇̪̐̔͂̀ŕ̖̜͇̥̋͛̚ ̞̜̰̅̊̓̓͜ȟ"͇̦̙͂͌͊ő̦̱̫͉́̈́̃ẇ̥͎̰̝̽̎͆ ̛̗̯̝̤͌̆̌f̼̝̮͙̅͐̄͑a͍̥̻͛͋̈́̋͜ṟ̖̪̼͋̔̆̕ ̙̤̮̱̽̆͌͠y̫̘̭̳̿̑̈́͒o͖͕͛́͘͜͝ͅu͓̝͕͈͑̑̍͘ ̣̪̬͕̒̽̍͝r"̳̺͖̓̋̔̀ǘ"̦͇̟̒́̄ņ̛͓̦̪̿̽̓
