Petition &Keep the SU community alive. Petition to keep photoblogging and html intact&

http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/keepphotoblog_htmlatstumbleupon/ Much as I admire the spirit that moves this petition, I think the very fact that Stumblers like us *use* petitions is what makes the Devs happy to be rid of us. There’s no point in signing; they won’t listen. That they had no export feature ready to go with the announcement of the […]

judefas reviews – StumbleUpon

http://judefa.stumbleupon.com/review/9053023/ Judefa enumerates the many, many problems inherent in the new StumbleUpon. Thanks from one who has exactly the same complaints but a tendency to foam at the mouth when listing them. The Devs – in their quest to solicit cash from spammers and corporations – have completely ignored the input from the old timers […]

Princess Sparkle Ponys Photo Blog: Background Check

http://sparklepony.blogspot.com/2008/10/background-check.html Sarah Palin’s hoary hands have made me realise what I should’ve realised months ago: She’s a witch. The first obvious signs were the wrinkly ungloved hands. Next – has anyone seen her feet outside those Naughty Monkeys? Can we confirm that she has toes? That hair looks too perfect to be anything but a […]

http://www.humoric.net/2008/08/31/40-ways-to-ruin-a-photo/ Most of these “ruined shots” – puerile though the idea is – have actually been usurped by the drunken antics or sober tomfoolery of their background characters, and thus fit the bill. This one, though, is totally undeserving of the term “ruined”. This one is improved.

Op-Ed Contributor – Jerry Seinfeld on George Carlin

http://www.nytimes.com/2008/06/24/opinion/24seinfeld.html?em&ex=1214452800&en=33d98b4f11507cbf&ei=5087%0A Jerry Seinfeld eulogizes the great George Carlin. I’ve been trying to figure out how best to honour him, but this beats any sorry tribute I could offer.

http://www.pandemian.com/ GreenFairy has moved and renamed her blog, but the content remains satisfyingly fresh and enviable (though less in content than in her fabulous, witty writing). Here’s one of the many, many reasons I keep coming back:

Boing Boing: New land speed record set for sofas (92 mph)

http://www.boingboing.net/2007/05/16/new_land_speed_recor.html New land speed record set for sofas (92 mph) As one who has marked off only a handful of the National Express notches she’s got lined up, this is envy-inducing. Oh, for a mini-fridge and Internetted computer to complete the fantasy! (With a nice, rounded CRT screen, to enhance the aerodynamics!) There’s something very […]
