Worst Birthday Ever?

Joseph Ducreux is B.A.

I feel like sometimes we forget that there have been badass gangstas forever. The Internet remembers sometimes, though. And the brilliant people who have created the memes around Joseph Ducreux's fabulous portrait from 1793 have done a wonderful job of it.

Birthday Songs - Feel free to draw inspiration.

Yesterday was my birthday - the big 2-5 dun dun dun - and I got loads of great videos on my Facebook wall, and I thought it'd be fun to compile them all here. So, without further ado, please enjoy!

I like mean people.

No, really.

I feel like this site could be 100% guido, but no - they mix it up. Bring all sorts of idiots who like to make the duckface.

What, you may ask, is a duckface?

Oh, my goodness. That is why I am here.

Here are all KINDS of duckfaces!

This isn't funny.

Sometimes I feel like maybe I worry too much about drunk people who take the subway alone. I no longer feel that way.



Where were her friends? Just those two old dudes to protect her - thank God for them. And why the hell was she smoking in the station?

This isn't funny and, therefore, doesn't really belong here, but goddammit it makes me mad.

Archives Stuff on Twitter

Time for some shameless self-promotion!

I've created list on Twitter focusing on archives. The only criteria to be added to the list is that the ... tweeter? ... talk about archives related topics about 75% of the time. If you are interested, you should follow it and learn all about what's going on around the world in archives.

Also, I'm always looking for suggestions on who should be added to the list!

"He's coming... he's coming... he's coming..."

Mind you, I've only read a few of the comics on Overcompensating, but this one commemorating Columbus Day is amazing. If you don't laugh, get the hell outta here.

Or you know - just hang around until the next post and see if you like it better.
