Man ships himself across country in crate with only access to the outside world through Lord of the Rings Online. Remember the time someone set themselves up in the display window of the now defunct Vancouver boutique, Dadabase and played Grand Theft Auto for 72 hours straight? (via Kotaku)

“Jeter pointed to the N.L. dugout as he left the diamond, pausing before the baseline and then stepping over it, like Burt Lancaster in “Field of Dreams,” crossing a threshold and knowing he could not return. That was the end of his All-Star Game career.”

As you may know, I’m always interested in projects that mingle between make believe and reality — I think my entire life might be a project of the same ilk, but that’s a TUMBLR POST best left my DEATH BED.

Richard Linklater’s Boyhood, which premiered last night in New York, is just such a project. Nothing glues an audience to a character more than watching them grow old; a story arch at the core of Boyhood, since it was filmed over 12 years and documents the aging of its cast in real-time.

There are no “coming of age” plot twists featuring sex or crises like death, overdose and crime. Linklater has been quoted as saying about the project, “People would ask, ‘So what happens?’ And I’d have to say, ‘Not much.’ ”

"Nothing happens" is a typical way of describing stories that are grounded so deeply in the archetypes that define the human condition we barely notice they’re there.

I am not suggesting that you watch this 2 hour video created in 1990 that goes through the design and functionality of user face widgets.

Instead, I would like you to scroll quickly through it and take a moment to ponder how most of these widgets have become some of the most ubiquitous symbols and functions of our daily experience. So much so, that revisiting them in this kind of detail takes on an air of the perverse.

Bonus: it’s also one of the first documentations of what has now become known as the “hamburger nav”

A 19 minute low-fi case study on fame and how the internet has the ability to grant it to anyone. Very well done. Anyone interested in culture politics should watch it or you’re all a bunch of assholes ;)
