:flash: Trent Reznor and Saul Williams Discuss Their New Collaboration, Mourn OiNK – “I think it’s just an awkward time right now to be a musician. The reality is that people think it’s okay to steal music. There’s a whole generation of people, that’s all they’ve known.”

:flash: oink.cd – the number 1 site in the world for waffle recipes – “These are the waffles that taste really good according to google.” clever.

:flash: Pac-Txt: Pac-Man meets Zork – “I had just got back from a party where the concept of a Pac-Man + Zork hybrid came up as a joke. So, being 2am with a little alcohol in my system, I thought it’d be funny to code it up (as far as I could before collapsing).” [via waxy]

:flash: David Lynch and psychosis – “Lynch’s dark and mysterious films can be seen to draw upon-and to inform-concepts in modern clinical approaches to psychology, especially the psychology of psychosis.” the film disturbed me so much, i couldn’t watch it to the end. this may expain it.
