“…but what about FUCKING PHOTOSHOP? Or, to be more precise, Photoshop Extended, which features “3D image creation, motion graphics editing, and advanced image analysis features”. Oh, it’s not a game, you say, so perhaps it doesn’t count? Would it count if we called it “Marioshop” or “Super Mario Photo” or some shit, and plastered Mario’s mug all over the start-up screen? Or if, every time you wanted to use one of the drawing tools, you had to play a stupid little mining mini-game? And if, whenever you saved your data and closed the application, you lost a few of your hoarded up “drawing tool resources” to random “critters” that Adobe inserted to help you avoid SHOOTING YOURSELF IN THE FACE FROM THE SHEER BOREDOM? How many of these utterly retarded modifications would we have to make to Photoshop for you to realize that it does more or less the same things that Minecraft does ONLY A BILLION TIMES BETTER? And actually, fuck Photoshop, the game that really trounces Minecraft is a very obscure little gem that only a few old timers like me are aware of: it is an amazing little indie game called AutoCAD, launched in December 1982 by independent game developer John Walker and a handful of close friends.”—
“Well, like I said, I grew up in Albuquerque, and what I heard is that it just means “penis”—it’s short for “chorizo,” and it came from the vatos. That’s how I heard it growing up: The cholos were like, “chode—short for ‘chorizo.’””—
Mind blown. I was childhood friends with a couple of metalhead brothers in my neighborhood who would allow me to borrow their Nintendo games in exchange for me putting up with a few pummelings here and there. They constantly called me a chode and argued about what it meant.
“They were fighting so hard to get me to take it out, so I went out on a limb and said, “OK, let’s specifically ask the focus group at this next screening, and if they don’t like it, I’ll take it out.” So this group of 19- to 30-year-olds or whatever said it was great. The woman running the thing was trying so hard to pollute the thing. She was like, “What’d you think about the music?” And they were like, “Oh, it’s great!” “But what about the gangsta rap?” And then they said, “Oh man, it was great!” “But maybe there was too much of it?” They wouldn’t give her anything. Not one bit of negativity came up, and this focus group saved me.”—Mike Judge on the gangsta rap featured in Office Space
"u can lie and all that but what would u REALLY do like what if it was super night out and u go downstairs and there it is a skeleton. its not doing anything outside the realms of a skeletons ability but it is walkin around checkin out stuff but u dont know whats up."
“Frank Oz, the most famous living Muppets performer — known best as Miss Piggy — spoke more harshly in a recent interview with the British paper Metro. “I wasn’t happy with the script,” he said bluntly. “I don’t think they respected the characters. But I don’t want to go on about it like a sourpuss and hurt the movie.””—
“One can leave this arrangement anytime they like by purchasing their own games, and writing to nobody on Tumblr. You stay because you like the arrangement. These little strains on the leash are performance art, and you may be sure that they tantalize your master; they are like the dance of a fish on the hook. They do like a bit of fight in ‘em; softens the meat.”—
