a good premise

Bababooey to all!
Hi Dan - Community is my favorite television show and Grantland is one of my favorite websites, so when Grantland posted an article about you today I read it. And also the article Alex Pappademas wrote about you a while ago, I read all of its words. I think I am like you, I am the most brilliant amazing person I know. And also an egomaniac asshole. But I'm only 21 years old. What advice do you have for a 21 year old version of yourself?

Skip the cocaine.  Best case scenario, you become a bad person for a half hour and then need more coke; worst case, you end up homeless or dead.

Don’t judge things that make you jealous and don’t lie about the jealousy.  Just say you wish you had something and figure out if there’s a way to get it.

Good writers hate bad writing but hating bad writing doesn’t make you good.  Writing badly does.

Luck and talent are the same thing, and neither of them have anything to do with your value as a human being.

When someone gives you a compliment, and you tell them they’re wrong, you’re not being humble, you’re being rude.

People attempting to prove you’re a bad person will shut up if you admit it, and they’ll leave you alone if you ask them to help you be better.

You’re going to marry Erin McGathy so try to be up front about that with all the women you date for the next 27 years.

You can’t control the outcome of your actions, so make your actions fulfilling.  That way, if the outcome is shit, you weren’t a total sucker.

Brush your teeth at night and cut down on the carbs.  Gawker and TMZ don’t scour the archives for your only hot photo.

Famed photographer Ferenc Berko took this photograph of this denture shop in Rawalpindi, India, in 1946. The giant model dentures may have been used to market false teeth, but they could easily have been the set for some fantastical horror film. I can’t help but wonder if the models scared off more customers than they brought in.

Bababooey to you all!

Still, the question of what happens with somebody’s digital assets after their death (including music, ebooks and social networking profiles) is something we haven’t quite figured out yet and that’s worth contemplating, even outside of this slow news day story.

Sites like Deceased Account, for example, lists numerous major web services that don’t currently have policies for how they handle the accounts of deceased users. Most services that do have policies, including Twitter, allow family members to close a dead user’s account but don’t provide them with access to the user’s data. Facebook, which probably has to deal with this problem more than other online services, now offers a feature to turn a dead person’s profile into an online memorial.

As for the music people download from iTunes, though, most of the rules for how Apple handles music rights aren’t so much determined by Apple as by the music industry.

Breaking Bad: White and Pinkman by Micah Lanier

Prints available at bigcartel. Let’s get something straight. This… the chemistry… is my realm. I am in charge of the cooking. Out there on the street, you deal with that. As far as our customers go, I don’t want to know anything about them. I don’t need to see them. I don’t want to hear from them. I want no interaction with them whatsoever. This operation is you and me, and I’m the silent partner. You got any issues with that?

Quotable Arts by Evan Robertson / Obvious State

High quality giclée prints available at etsy. Distilling literary quotes from a handful of the masters down to a single graphic representation, Evan captures the raw concept of the sentence and makes it damn purty to look at as well.
