Over a decade later, I’m still fascinated by Techno Viking

More than a decade after its release, I’m still fascinated by the notorious Techno Viking video. There’s something indescribably captivating about it. I find myself watching the clip at least several times a year. I can try to explain it, but its mystery evades writing. Every little detail in the video simply falls perfectly into place, as if it was staged. But it wasn’t. Where do I start? Bear with me throughout this synopsis — or scroll down to watch the actual video first. The video opens with a woman in a bright, cyan wig awkwardly dancing to a techno track…

These songs inspired by Trump’s handwritten quid pro quo defense are peak Twitter

The Twitter-verse is alive with the sound of music that was inspired by the most unusual of lyricists: US President Donald J. Trump. Earlier this week the embattled number 45 put on one of the strangest performances of his presidency as he spoke to media outside the White House. Starring as both narrator and lead, the President acted out what it might look like if he directly responded to inquiries raised by US Ambassador Gordon Sondland during the ongoing impeachment hearings. It has to be seen to be believed, here’s a video from C-SPAN: But if you’re not able to…

We finally know where Rick (from Rick and Morty) stands on the Intel vs AMD debate

Wubba lubba dub duuuub! Rick and Morty‘s back for its fourth season, peeps — and we finally known where Rick stands on the AMD vs Intel debate. Spoiler: he’s more of an AMD guy.
