Getting A Bad Vibe Here

Attn Parents: This post is not appropriate for young children. Or adults, really, but I won't tell if you won't.  

Since I know you're curious about the behind-the-scenes workings here at Cake Wrecks, I thought I'd provide you with the actual dialogue between me and John while discussing a cake.

This cake:

Ready? Here goes.


Me: [calling to other room] "Hey, you don't know any vibrator puns, do you?"

John: [crossing the distance in approximately .7 seconds] "What are you working on?"

Me: "Oh, it's this one. I've got the 'bad vibe' thing going for the title, but now I'm at a loss. What else do you call these things? Do you know any euphemisms?"

John: [staring] "What's it supposed to be?"

Me: "Beats me. It just looks like a giant pink finger."

[both of us pause]

Me: "Hey, I bet that's one."

John: [unable to speak due to laughter]

John: [getting his breath back] "You HAVE to write this down."

Annnnd that's about it. By the way, I feel this is an excellent time to mention that, yes indeedy, we actually get paid now to do this. Living' the dream, people. We're livin' the dream.

Oh, and neither Lis B. nor I have any idea what that cake is supposed to be. However, since it was in the "kids cakes" gallery on the bakery's website I'm guessing it's probably some perfectly innocent character from a cartoon or something. No doubt many of you are preparing to point this out in the comments, too, so that the rest of us look like pervy malcontents. So, you know, I've got that to look forward to.

Livin' the dream, man. Livin'. The. Dream.

BUFFY: Let's just pretend for a second that... Angel somehow found his way back to Sunnydale. What would he be like?
GILES: I really can't say. From what is known about that dimension, i- it would suggest a world of... brutal torment. And time moves quite differently there, so...
BUFFY: I remember. So he would've been down there for hundreds of years.
GILES: Yes.
BUFFY: Of torture.
GILES: It would take someone of extraordinary... will and character to survive that and, uh, retain any semblance of self. Most likely, he'd be, be a monster.
BUFFY: A lost cause.

It's only natural, I know. You see all the wreckage on this blog and you think, "Ok, but surely I can keep my order from being wrecked, right? I mean, all I have to do is help the baker out a little!

"Why, if I just spell it out clearly, military style..."

Nice job, Ace.

 

"Or maybe if I write it all down...

 

"And if I indicate which part is the actual text..."

 

"Um... Or what if I ask for just a single letter? That's easy, right?"

Color me impressed. Or magenta. 

 

"Ok, fine, I get it. You've made your point. No text. I guess I'll just ask for a flower or something."

 "AAAAAUUUUUUUGGGGHHH!!"

 

Thanks to Katy E., Cristina B., Terry M., Brandt H., & Anony M. for making this post literally painful.

Things You Can Believe In

1) Has anyone else watched the movie Their Finest? I loved it. Read more... )

2) We've been watching Manhunt: The Unabomber and it only confirms my belief that the best and the brightest do not go into law enforcement. (Or if they do, chances are they don't last there). I actually found myself agreeing with the Unabomber's view of them. Read more... )

3) That people were more concerned about their legacy and the standing of the agency than actually thinking outside the box (although if you've got written evidence, how out of the box could linguistic analysis possibly be) contrasts rather painfully with the noble and dedicated view of investigators in fiction. (Although why should we expect these agencies to be different than any other workplace?) I couldn't help being reminded of their shortcomings when reading the following though:

"To push the limitations, I downloaded all the novel-length stories of the fifty most prolific Twilight fan-fiction authors on Fan-Fiction.net—each of whom had written more words in the Twilight universe than Stephenie Meyer herself. I thought that if you compared writers writing at about the same time as each other in the same universe about the same characters and in the emulated style of one author, the word frequencies might not have as much determinative value. Instead, it was 99.7 percent accurate at picking out who the true fan-fiction author of each story was."

4) We also recently watched Race, the Jesse Owens story. It was ok but the timing of seeing it was quite good. Read more... )

5) Nothing like finding a story that's rare in the fandom only to discover that, not only was it not finished, but it and all the author's other stories have disappeared from the net so you can't even look for their other work :( Read more... )
