DIS week: I Think You Misunderstood Me…


The Graduate: Instead of emailing her class the answers to a homework assignment, a TA at the University of Iowa accidentally sent private, pornographic pictures from a ‘vid chat sext sesh’ with her boyfriend. Obviously, this sucks, but my most pressing question is… who uses Google Hangout?? I still don’t even know how to navigate this new Gmail layout ughhh.


CAKE CAKE CAKE: Nothing merits a ‘you shouldn’t have’ more than a vagina cake. Especially when there’s a baby clawing its way out of said vagina cake. Why do the worst gifts never come with a gift receipt?


HEAT IT UP: Jumping on the bandwagon of rappers turnt cookbook author (looking at you 2 Chainz), Ja Rule is releasing a cookbook for microwaveable food. Yeah, really! Oh wait, maybe not. No no, he’s not. Well maybe now that he’s #relevant again he’ll finally put out a new song since he HASN’T HAD A HIT SINCE 2003.

2013 Bitch Manifesto: Britney Spears, otherwise known as the second coming of Jo Freeman, shared her thoughts on one of her favorite words in the english language, ‘bitch’. A highlight:

“I don’t call everyone… that word. I just use it as, it’s like in respect to the gays as a term of endearment… It’s like a street slang for everyone, you know, like you get to work, that’s what you do when you get to work and it’s like, cool.”

You know what though? It is, like, cool to do work. I like this new philosophical Britney – like, who better to spearhead a discussion about the evolution of the word ‘bitch’ than the boss bitch Britney herself? Because as much as you may not want to admit it, before ‘Queen B’, there was Miss Britney Jean Spears. So yes, you better work bitch. You work away.


No I Really Mean It This Time: Jil Sander is leaving Jil Sander again because she feels like it.

This Week at Art School: 19 year-old gay art student Clayton Pettet is set to lose his virginity in front of a select audience at a London gallery space this January. His project, titled “Art School Stole My Virginity”, has already stimulated much discussion on the topic of virginity among critics and fans alike – all except his parents, who apparently are still out of the know.


Bloody Murder: There’s something about the post-dentist visit youtube video that always has me coming back. Maybe it’s because I see them as a tiny window into one’s true psyche, but most probably because they’re fucking hilarious. So, sit back and enjoy this video of a teenage girl distraught after ‘murdering her wisdom teeth’.


#FF: We’re as intrigued by Billy Rennekamp‘s Instagram portraits of his unnamed competitors at the World Othello Championships in Stockholm right now, as we are confused as to what this game even is – and that’s why we love them.

r3@diNg is for l0serzs: Buzzfeed Articles Without the Gifs proves that the only form of effective and popular journalism these days is by sounding like a 16 year old girl – because, like, who has time to like read anymore LOL LOL LOL.


The future generation is doomed. 100%.

nils lange + saliva : l’eau des algues

Toward a Low Key Voting System Where Votes Are Actually Considered | Adrian Massey

While reading A Very Short Introduction to Game Theory, I came across the following passage, “If you want people to vote, we need to move to a more decentralized system in which every vote really does count enough to outweigh the lack of enthusiasm for voting which so many people obviously feel…Simply repeating the slogan that ‘every vote counts’ isn’t ever going to work, because it isn’t true.” I was jarred. For me, anecdotally knowing… [read more »]

Tough Luck | Tyler Reinhard

When life is being super unfair, just do what we all do: suffer the consequences. I wake up and the first thing I do is check my phone. A convenient euphemism for using Facebook’s machine learning techniques to discover which 300 entries are statistically most likely to stand out from the tens of thousands of brain dumps my friends and family have produced over the last 48 hours. Impressed by what Facebook provides, I think… [read more »]

America Is Hard to See: A Guide to not being depressed about US electoral politics this November

In order to make sense of state politics in the birthplace of statistical marketing and the internet, one has to be wary of the effects of these technologies on the country’s popular media. In a time when our news and advertisements are tailored to our pre-recorded political opinions, it can be especially difficult to empathize with differing political views. Likewise, learning about the histories of state politics is not encouraged by platforms that profit from… [read more »]

On self-care and the election | Eva Saelens

We can get together and laugh about it. We can heave sighs and express disbelief, but it’s never enough. This presidential election year has lasted for years, and they sit on citizens like a slick film. We feel touched by an unshakable germ, invaded by a blood-sucker, afflicted by a social cancer, drained of the plump vitality of life and the amazing liberty of choices, and transformed into a cynical, depressed shrivel. After being touched… [read more »]

What is a piece of clothing that “works”? Who is working whom? Is the one who poses the one who actually “works” hardest? The S/S 2017 collection of Berlin-based, Swedish- Vietnamese designer NHU DUONG entitled ‘WORK COLLECTION’ plays with the ideas of professionalism, leisure and appropriateness through a range of garments that are inspired by work outfits and hobby uniforms. Overalls, raw denim outfits, kung-fu pyjamas, biker pants, baggy tights and gloves, bomber-jackets, bomber suits,… [read more »]

Preparing to Welcome the Chthulucene | Agustina Zegers

Preparing to Welcome the Chthulucene is a text made up of living exercises to accompany Haraway’s theorization of the Chthulucene and her upcoming book Staying With the Trouble: Making Kin in the Chthulucene. Haraway posits that not only should we name the Anthropocene carefully (including the terms Capitalocene and Plantationocene within its narrative) but that we should also be using this crucial ecological timeframe to move towards a dynamically multi-species, “sym-chtonic“, sym-poietic future: the Chthulucene.… [read more »]
