Fluff Overflow

zoya:

Look at Jello Biafra wrestle Donna Death for half of “Holiday In Cambodia” and not miss a beat. 

This show — the first Dead Kennedys appearance in NYC — was a full year before the release of Fresh Fruit for Rotting Vegetables. I’m utterly amazed at how fully-formed their sound was by this point.

"California Uber Alles" from the same set is even better, but isn’t available online yet. NYU Fales Library has it in their archive.

The Manhattan Defonte's Closes For Good Next Weekend  

So bummed about this! All my favorite lunch places around here keep closing :(

They’re simply amazing live. I’ve seen them three times in the past two years, and they get even better every time. Had I known they were playing a Brooklyn show tonight, I would have bought tickets to that one too.

Major lack of Chipotle around here. Really wish this stupid LensCrafters would close and turn into a Chipotle.

Today I learned that the total number of tweets ever made on Twitter is roughly 4x the total number of posts ever made on Tumblr.

The number of database servers they have is far, far more than 4x, and ditto for the number of staff members working on their databases. Also keep in mind the average Tumblr post is quite a bit larger than a tweet.

Not knocking Twitter by any means — their work is extremely impressive, especially their open source contributions. But given visibility into the raw numbers, I’m especially proud of the database work my former teams (tiny, tiny teams!) accomplished at Tumblr.

Just realized this shoe bench is actually a sleeping ghost.
Maybe I should start a furniture ghosts blog.
