The Internet is Eating Me

No, I'm serious, it is.

Every Single Lawsuit From Elmo's Accusers Has Been Thrown Out of Court

Kevin Clash isn’t Elmo, nor is Elmo Kevin Clash. But putting that aside: it’s interesting that his exoneration gets no major press, which his accusation did. Hope he can go back to Sesame Street now.

  • Crows remember the faces of ‘dangerous humans,’ with the memories likely lasting for a bird’s lifetime.

  • Crows may scold people who threaten them, bringing in relatives and even strangers to mob the person.

  • The crows within mobs then indirectly learn about the person, so they too associate that individual’s face with danger and react accordingly.

CHILLING.

God, why did you include crows in your plan for us? They are literally your greatest mistake, Lord. Amen.

Oh, Tumblr.

You guys don’t know it, but you really helped me out when I was feeling helpless yesterday. I got a lot of supportive notes from people I like and respect a lot. It soothed me and strengthened me quite a bit.

This is what the Internet was made for; not distance and disconnection, but togetherness. It’s our magic mirror we all look in as a group and see a little of each other as we look back at ourselves.

Never change, you beautiful little sandwiches.

Baby’s First Panic Attack

I was driving to get lunch and I started thinking about some crazy life/job/family mess. I immediately noticed that my breathing was different. I started feeling like someone was tightening a wire around my chest and I started feeling light-headed. I pulled into the K-Mart parking lot and just started crying.l uncontrollably for about ten minutes.

I called my mom, who salved the wound for the most part. I’ve been under a lot lately and I don’t think I’ve handled it well. I went back to my office and ate some granola with dark chocolate in it, which made me feel better somehow.

Can I say, dealing with stress is hard, but swallowing it and putting on a happy face is not “dealing with it”. Lesson learned, to be sure.

And to anyone who deals with panic attacks more than once a year? You have my utter sympathy and I wish you the best, because damn, that thing nearly fucking ruined me.

The Official Website of Jimmy Marks

I re-tooled my website a little. Played with the colors, knocked out the individual project “pages” and just went with a continuous stream of collected work. I still need to refresh the writing page but I’m happier with it now than before.

Give it a look!
