The Atlanta Radio Theatre Company is consistently a blast.

"The Colour Out of Space" is a short story written by American horror author H. P. Lovecraft in March 1927. In the tale, an unnamed narrator pieces together the story of an area known by the locals as the "blasted heath" in the wild hills west of Arkham, Massachusetts.

Sabrina sent along a link to these guys at Fairphone building Android based smartphones with an eye on being more socially responsible than your standard suicide net monstrosities. They need to sell a little over a thousand more pre-orders in the next two weeks to start production on what looks like a pretty cool little.

Their press kit says the phone will be completely unlocked, ready for root access. More details are obviously available on their site. Right now they're only shipping to locations in Europe, but if you know someone with an address in one of the countries listed, maybe it's something to consider.

Here's the pretty, feel-good video the site provides:

... and the device with specs.


Fairphone specs:

Dragontrail glass: Ultra thin and light; super durable and scratch-resistant
Mediatek 6589 chipset: Quad core CPU for faster processing and page loading
16 GB internal memory: For music, movies, apps, games and more
qHD display: 4.3 inches of touch-screen goodness
Dual front/ rear camera: 8 mp + 1.3 mp for photos and video calls
Android OS (4.2 Jelly Bean): Special interface developed by Kwame Corporation (Also open!)

Outlawed in Pakistan

When 13-year-old Kainat Soomro accused four men of gang rape, she risked everything: her reputation, her education and even her life.

Just a few dudes, hanging out, lamenting the big mouth of a rape survivor. You know, any Friday night, really.

With a US proxy, check out the full documentary over at Frontline now.

In 2012, three garment workers were shot during a protest outside a Puma supplier factory in Cambodia. Despite their pain, the women have all returned to work. Their shooter remains free.



You can see/ sign a petition over at change.org.

You can also learn more about Cambodia and the Garment Industry over at Heather's site.

Thirty four might be "young" in quotes, but I'm not addled enough to think it's charming to provide my age against the contrast of my youth being an implausibility.

Fuck you, you condescending, smug, assholes.

Also, capitalize your name; lower case proper nouns aren't hip, they're illiterate.

It's not completely clear the edges of why this is so depressing, exactly, but it is.


Cyanide and Happiness. Buy some of their books.

The Truth Hurts

Gametrailers.com is making me re-register following their site revamp and their Tees and Cees are prefaced with this little gem:

Social Project ("SP") is established in the United States, meaning that you are accessing a community network in the U.S. Any personal information you provide to SP is governed by and will be dealt with in accordance with the SP Privacy Policy and U.S. law. Please note that U.S. law provides a lower standard of protection for personal data than the laws of various countries including, but not limited to, the European Union.

Man, the truth hurts. Oh, and the link to their SP Terms is a 404. So pretty great work. Also, IIS? Really? If you say so guys.
