Proof We Landed On The Moon

For many years, issues of atmospheric interference and insufficient resolution prevented us from providing photograph evidence that we did, indeed, land on the moon.

Modern Extremely High Resolution, Space-Based cameras solved that problem and we now have photographic evidence of the moon landing.

"Live Action" Cats Movie Trailer Is Horrifying

They should just release the album and forget the movie



So, Who Really Got Belle Delphine Banned?

The day after Belle Delphine got banned from Instagram, at least a dozen irritated incels claimed to be the one who got her banned (including secondlife's Britbongreturns aka MrBtfo) 

They all used the same image as "proof" they were the one that did the deed.  

Most likely it was another Instagram user known as athlete_thedog that accomplished the deed as he was the first one who posted the image.


Belle Delphine recently made herself more noteworthy than the thousands of other cam girls by selling her own bathwater for $30 a pint.  The only thing funnier than her getting banned was all the weirdos trying to make other weirdos think they did it.

Everybody Loves Shirley

After much prayer and thought, Linden Lab's good ol' Shirl decided to give Aubrexx her account back to her!

Once upon a time, Queen Aubrey decided to call out an evil, loathing, hateful mexican (and former casino cash out employee) Honeybear.Sparta (Honeybear.Pooley She announced (to the kind citizens of Korea) that this was a bad person who did bad things to good people. After doing so, Honeybear was upset enough to call Linden Labs and impersonate our fine queen. While pretending to be Aubrey, she stated that she felt her account got compromised. LL shut down the account to investigate.



The Aubreyxx account was falsly flagged. Aubrey was never banned. It was up to Aubrey to verify information from 7 years ago. This was very difficult to do. However, with the help and budding friendship between Shirl and Aubrey, she was able to restore everything.

Queen Aubrey now has her account back.

Honeybear is no where to be found (Not even in Drip City where she has been hiding with Cheche). Moral of the story is, Dont fk with the queen. Being jealous and hateful never gets you anywhere.

David Bowie Was More Well-Read Than I

Below is a list of David Bowie's 100 favorite books from the current exhibit on his life in canada.  I highlighted the ones that I've also read, whether they are in my list of 100 favorites or not (although several are).

A couple things struck me about this list.  First, Bowie was really fucking well-read.  My respect for him grew.  Also, most of his reading list focus on the American experience, even though most of his life was in England.  If I were to make a similar list, it would probably include more British writers than his.  I'm surprised he picked As I Lay Dying for his Faulkner entry, my choice usually is Absalom,Absalom!  Although he seems to prefer southern novelists, his choice of books makes me wonder what he thought of us.  After reading Black Boy, he must have hated us, after reading Confederacy of Dunces, he must have pitied us.  Combined with Sweet Soul Music, and I'm coming to see Bowie had more of an interest in our peculiar institution than I ever knew.
Only a few of these books are about music or musicians.  I expected there would be more.  He clearly has a developed interest in cultural psychology, but none for cultural mythology (religion) and none at all for science fiction.

Despite his interest in acting, there are no plays and only one poem.  Not that many of his choices are novels.  I'm surprised two of his choices are collections of comics.  Although Bowie himself was an icon of the 60's and 70's, the only book really about that era is the Hitchens book on Kissinger.  He seems to have more of an interest in the 50's when he would have been a boy.
