North Korea Tweets

Written by Musashi on . Posted in News

Our favorite despotic dictatorship, North Korea, is now on Twitter. I’m not sure how North Korea plans to use it’s newly found communicative ability, but I can’t wait to hit the ‘Follow’ button. I bet all kinds of crazy Tweets are in our future – except I don’t read Korean, so that might be a […]


Miyazaki is a luddite

Written by Musashi on . Posted in Anime

Famed animator Hayao Miyazaki is an Old Guy. And you know what that means! He’s old-timey and hates newfangled gadgets, like computers and TV’s. And what does he compare the iPad to? Jerking off! That’s right – to Hayao Miyazaki, all you people out there stroking your lap-tablets are just playing with yourselves! In an […]

AT&T picks fight with 4chan – this will not end well

Written by Musashi on . Posted in News

AT&T has placed itself in the dubious position of policing net traffic to 4chan’s infamous /b/ message board. Why they did so is predictable, but I’m amazed on two fronts: one, that they would place themselves in a position to censor net traffic and two, fucking with 4chan – possibly the largest hornet’s nest on […]
