dear internet,

thank you for entertaining me all day today.
A list of things worth checking out:

1. I have an external hard drive, which I really love. It makes schlepping from work to home so much easier, serves as backup and generally looks very sleek and sexy. But it needs a case if it's going to survive in the beat-em-up lifestyle it is being subjected to. So I've been on the hunt for a pouch, and just bought this today.

You can find the Etsy shop here. (She also has some nice cutout paper prints of arctic animals).

2. This absolutely hilarious snippet of an interview with rapper DMX: (via kottke)


In the middle of this interview with rapper DMX, it becomes clear that he's never heard of Barack Obama before.


Q: Barack Obama, yeah.
A: Barack?!

Q: Barack.
A: What the fuck is a Barack?! Barack Obama. Where he from, Africa?

Q: Yeah, his dad is from Kenya.
A: Barack Obama?

Q: Yeah.
A: What the fuck?! That ain't no fuckin' name, yo. That ain't that nigga's name. You can't be serious. Barack Obama. Get the fuck outta here.

Q: You're telling me you haven't heard about him before.

A: I ain't really paying much attention.

Q: I mean, it's pretty big if a Black...
A: Wow, Barack! The nigga's name is Barack. Barack? Nigga named Barack Obama. What the fuck, man?! Is he serious? That ain't his fuckin' name. Ima tell this nigga when I see him, "Stop that bullshit. Stop that bullshit" [laughs] "That ain't your fuckin' name." Your momma ain't name you no damn Barack.


3. And this, my new favorite short film, titled Dog Years:
