Remember back when Libertarian bloggers, especially ancaps, were doing this on tumblr all the fucking time? Super wild that this was first published in 1977.

"Anarcho capitalism" makes as much sense as halal pork or kosher shellfish.
It’s really quite difficult to contain my urges to buy things when I’m looking at fine books. I know I can get the same words for pennies or less, but they’re not the same thing as books, and while the addition of goatskin, gold blocking, silk and vellum doesn’t make the words any more or less true or valid, they add something to the experience of the book in question. So I either need to find the willpower to stop looking up esoteric publishers like Scarlet Imprint or Three Hands (unlikely) or I need to find a funding source to sate my consumerist cravings so I can own all of the books.

this image is quite literally six years old now and that’s wild to me. there are actual real live human beings younger than this .jpg who are walking and talking unassisted. i feel so old. i feel death approaching. will i sleep? will i dream?
Old 4chan memes are so incomprehensible now. Matthew and I were just talking about this last night, I was describing a Hot Topic in 2003. “It was a simpler, more ancient time,” I said, “When a meme had a real longetivity to it. Years and years. And when somebody understood the bizarre reference, it was actually really cool, like: Yeah! We’re both internet weirdos! High-five! Now I see something funny and I’m already immediately exhausted by it, because tomorrow it’ll be on the Ellen show and my grandma will share it on facebook, and next week you can buy it on t-shirts at Urban Outfitters, and six months from now it’s going to be in a bunch of parody movie trailers. By the time South Park gets it in their show six days later it’s stale. It won’t go quietly into the night like ‘I’ma chargin mah lazers’ — an honorable death, at the highest it could go. It just immediately is sold and consumed and fucking awful. Immediately. And then it’s dead, before it even happened.”
