more than any reaction gif, I feel like this is the single most important link to have in your holster for facebook arguments.
Introducing: Divorcee, the new project from Yoni Wolf and his ex-girlfriend Anna Stewart. With their self-titled debut EP, the WHY? frontman steps out of the spotlight to craft all the music himself, while Stewart sets her brutally honest lyrics to each song.
The six song EP chronicles Stewart’s relationships with men, and is at times a podium for her to proclaim her own perspective about her former relationship with Yoni, a subject well-documented through previous WHY? songs (most notably on the album “Alopecia”). She recounts her relationship anxieties with gut-wrenching honesty and an endearing, confident tone, revealing the feminine counterpoint to WHY? songs like “Good Friday” & “The Hollows”. Her lyrics are impactful, unsettling, and sometimes quite deprecating toward her former lover / new bandmate.
In a lengthy blog post, OkCupid cofounder Christian Rudder explains that OkCupid has on occasion played around with removing text from people’s profiles, removing photos, and even telling some users they were an excellent match when in fact they were only a 30 percent match according to the company’s systems. Just to see what would happen.
OkCupid defends this behavior as something that any self-respecting Web site would do.
"OkCupid doesn’t really know what it’s doing. Neither does any other Web site," Rudder wrote. "But guess what, everybody: if you use the Internet, you’re the subject of hundreds of experiments at any given time, on every site. That’s how websites work."
There was a joke I loved on one episode of MTV’s short lived The College Humor Show (I don’t know, it was a weird time in my life, I think I worked pretty hard to get ahold of the few episodes that aired.) wherein the College Humor team think they’ve accidentally killed one of their users who won a contest. The ceo/site owner (I forget) is freaking out and says “Nobody will want to go to a website run by a murderer! Look at what happened to Friendster!” and one of the staffers says “The guy from Friendster killed someone?!” and the ceo says “I don’t know, probably”.
