These Are Just To Say

aka "Variations on a Theme by Kenneth Koch": versions of "This is Just to Say" hybridized with other poems (such as "This Be The Verse" or "To Lucasta, on Going to the Wars") or just recast into different forms (such as the double dactyl or the villanelle). [more inside]

Problems From Everyday Life

The Whelk and I asked ourselves, wouldn't the first season of NBC's Hannibal have turned out differently if, instead of turning to Dr Lecter for advice, they had mined the collective intelligence of AskMeFi? Ladies and Gentlemen, this is our design.

I'm Pope Oscar! dot com

Last week, the internet decided that George Bluth was the Pope. You've all made a huge mistake. Oscar holy, Michael!

Houndton Tabby

In anticipation of the season 3 premiere of Downton Abbey, I've begun a series of portraits based upon the memorable characters from the show. Depicted as dogs and cats, naturally. I am selling them as prints in my Etsy shop.

Heathrow Facts

Future Earth's surviving bacteria colonizing Heathrow Terminal 5. A superior airport experience. A place to replicate & escape the heat.
So: a parody London Heathrow Twitter account, tweeting from an alternate, slightly less benign universe. Learn about Heathrow's sinister cosmic plans for expansion, upcoming Christmas specials, and the airport's occult connections with Ancient Egypt. Brought to you by that 0430 British Airways flight that swoops low over my house every morning and wakes me up.

Daily Mail Headlines

A friend of mine rewrote a Daily Mail parody headline generator (originally in JavaScript) in Python to serve as input to an IRC bot. I rewrote it in Go as a parody Twitter account. It updates 3-4 times daily. [more inside]

The How Not To Kill Your Baby Official Growth Chart Of Doom

Have you ever read a parenting book that left you feeling inadequate and/or terrified? In other words, have you ever read any parenting book whatsoever? Then you might enjoy my new book How Not To Kill Your Baby, a parody of all those crazy-making pregnancy and parenting manuals. It comes complete with a poster-size detachable Growth Chart of Doom, which will tell you if your baby is big enough to survive an encounter with an angry capybara. For the story of why I decided to write the book, you can read my guest post at the New York Times Motherlode blog. [more inside]

Before The Movie Begins

"On leaving the theater, you will be assaulted by baseball-bat-wielding ushers, who will pummel your skull until you forget what you have seen. Any remaining memories are yours to keep and enjoy." I wrote the Shouts & Murmurs in this week's New Yorker. It's a parody of those infernal anti-piracy announcements. [more inside]

FaveRunner: The Video Game Of Missing The Point Of Metafilter

I'm teaching myself the blitting-centric Flash games library Flixel, and my Hello World program sort of got carried away and turned into this silly little platformer in which you try to collect favorites while avoiding the menacing flags. Fifteen levels in three worlds (blue, green, and grey), random fave and flag placement, and, in fine oldschool platformer fashion, compensating for it's shortness by being unfairly hard in spots. Features chiptune snippets of matthewchen is Spamming and Doing the Churlish Pule!

Monsters of Grok: fake band shirts for history's greatest thinkers

If want to live in a world where being a scientist is considered bad ass, and philosophers are worshiped like rock stars, so my newest lineup of t-shirts parodies famous band logos by re-purposing them to celebrate some of the world's most influential minds. Hope you enjoy them.

Baby's First Single Serving Web Page: Deleted Post Filter

I decided to teach myself some python and CGI. This is what came of it. It is a single serving page that delivers a markov chain of every deleted post's title, plus a markov deleted reason and some text from my comments made into a fake post description. In later versions, I may scrape deleted post descriptions so it's less disjointed than it is, but I don't want to think about how long it would take to scrape every deleted post, and if it could be done in a server-friendly fashion (I haven't done any back of the envelope math to see how it goes).

"Wii U" parody song

I saw the announcement video for Nintendo's new console, the "Wii U" yesterday morning, and immediately after that someone sent me a YouTube video of William Shatner's cover of Cee-Lo's "Fuck You". A terrible idea was thus born in my tiny brain, so I cranked this out yesterday afternoon. Enjoy.

Joel on Coal

Software blogger Joel Spolsky has a new blog, where he discusses coal mining and its astounding parallels to software development and management. "The other crucial thing about having a schedule is that it forces you to decide what seams you are going to choose, and then it forces you to pick the least safe corridors and cut them rather than slipping into pillar-robbing (a.k.a. slope creep)."

Drag Me To Hell As Remembered By Bunny and Coco

In Los Angeles last week we discovered we had access to several of the props from the Sam Raimi film "Drag Me to Hell," as well as the locations where the film was made, as well as our friend Abbie Cobb (currently on Beverly Hills 90210), who was Alison Lohman's body double in the original film. So we did what anybody would do. We remade the film from memory.

OK Monkees Parody Mashup Video Remix

OK Go's latest video (four guys playing with a bunch of dogs) instantly reminded me of something I might have seen in an old episode of The Monkees. I Monkee-ified the soundtrack with a fitting song and made a few adjustments to the video to achieve this result. 1966 meets 2010!

Parody "I'm Voting Tea Party" Shirts

The Tea Party might have a quasi-mainstream official platform, but it also seems to be a magnet for far right loonies, angry racists, borderline psychotics and those that are simply grossly misinformed. These shirts are for those fringe nutjobs that make the Tea Party rallies so much fun to read about. "Obama is right handed, just like Hitler. That's why I'm voting tea Party!"

Nine Inch Niles - The Seattleward Spiral

A bizarre auto-mashup album I made today using Echo Nest Remix: it's a frankensteinien reconstruction of The Downward Spiral using only a few minutes of audio from the show Frasier.
