Some cretin by the name of Ian figured out how to run a blog. This is the result: music being shoved down throats, unwarranted opinions on things, and generally being a very bad blog. skype: ihitterdal
mturk is a weird place
i’m being paid to identify pictures that have vaginas in them at a rate of four cents a page
What is vaporwave?
"Vaporware" refers to any piece of software that’s (supposedly) been in development for ages, but shows no significant signs of making progress toward release.
For example, Duke Nukem Forever was vaporware for like ten years before it finally started actually making progress toward its eventual release.
Um, that’s vaporwaRe.
I wanna know what vaporwaVe is
vaporwave’s a music genre
shit like macintosh plus
i had an idea of a short story/novella, and i want to know if it’s completely stupid or if i should run with it
it’s the story of live minnows that suddenly gain sentience and the ability to communicate amongst themselves while trapped inside the plastic bait thing. they discuss their newfound sentience and its implications, only to be interrupted by being purchased and taken away from the store they were in. during a relatively brief car trip, they question what’s happening, only to see the equipment around them and slowly figure out that they’ll be killed and used for some purpose.
of course, every minnow panics. they helplessly try to come up with ideas by which to escape, but then realize that the water in which they live is the only thing keeping them alive. escaping the container would mean nothing more than certain death.
they are brought to a lake and taken onto an old rusty fishing boat along with the equipment. they now understand the purpose of the tools: they will be killed by other fish to get larger fish. another wave of panic sets in, but then the minnows hear the voices of the people about to use them.
these aren’t rich people going on their pontoon for a recreational fish fry. these are a poverty-stricken father and son who have lately had to rely on fishing to survive. the death of the minnows allows these people (these beings much higher than themselves) to survive.
after another lengthy discussion about the value of their lives, the minnows all choose to accept their fate. if it weren’t for this, their lives would be completely pointless. their willing sacrifice gives their brief lives meaning. they know exactly why they’re going to die, and that gives them peace in their final moments. everyone says their goodbyes, and the story concludes.
and that’s about it. could i develop this into something worth reading, or would it be absolute garbage no matter what i did with the concept?
