» Curio City

Which is also known on the tubes as CurioCity.org.

Here you'll find the flotsam and jetsam from the collisions between my interests and the Internet, a bit of cosmic debris, and the small, crunchy bits that collect in the gutters of my mind. If you like what you find, you may also like the longer original works at Hidden City. On the other hand, if you are interested in the person behind this collection, you can find out more than you need to know here, or find my on seemingly numberless services as mkhall. And if you are the person who likes to do such things, you can leave me a message at 786/664-7070.

I love Iceland. I love volcanoes. Ergo, I love these photos of Iceland’s Bardabunga volcano erupting.

Talking Rug

Now this is a rug that would tie the room together! The rolling planchette coffee table is a bonus.

Extinction Symbol

The symbol above represents extinction. The circle signifies the planet, while the hourglass inside serves as a warning that time is rapidly running out for many species.

Six Spaces

This is from 2007, but I think it is still a valid definition of the types of social media environments. Can anyone think of something which doesn’t fit into any of these categories?

Welcome Back to School (Shootings)

There is a tacit agreement among children to wait until they are grown to start killing one another, and when this is violated we call it “the unimaginable.” We say, “I never thought this kind of thing could happen here.” But at some point in the past 20 years, it began to seem not just imaginable, but inevitable.

Lighthouse HQ

The US Federal government is selling off obsolete lighthouses. Should one not attract a buyer, they will give it away to someone willing to maintain it for historic purposes.

Silver Dreams

The Sandman Omnibus Silver Edition, Signed By Neil Gaiman – CBLDF - Rewards Zone

It’s incredibly greedy of me to want this. I already have the original issues, the original collections, the original hardbacks, and the Absolute Editions. Do I really need a limited edition omnibus of Neil Gaiman’s The Sandman signed by Neil? Of course, sales of this edition go to support the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund, an organization I strongly believe in.

But no, I can’t justify…

from various reddit threads

at dinner last night, a coworker was talking about hanging out with his white friends and getting fed up with the racist jokes, and asked them to tell a white people joke.  nobody had any, so he googled and found these. after a few of them, people were a lot less comfortable.

white folks, next time you hear a racist joke, maybe lead with one of these in response.  tag this “I’m white” when you reblog it, if you are.

Samantha, is that you?

This has two strikes against it for me: I have never found a comfortable earbud, and my voice is usually pitched too low for Bluetooth mics to pick up.

Moderate Muslim majority

I often hear people ask why there isn’t any outcry from moderate Muslims when terrorist groups commit the all-too-common atrocities.
