Focusmusic.fm Is Simple, Minimal, and Streams Music to Work To

Music for productivity comes in various forms, but if you’re the type who enjoys non-vocal electronica in the background while you get stuff done, Focusmusic.fm delivers. Best of all, it’s in a simple, minimal interface with few controls and no playlists or other tools to distract you.

What if by alien standards we are really cute?

And I don’t mean like attractive cute, I mean like baby otter cute. What if the stumble upon us and go “ohhhhh my god!!! Oh my god!!!! I’m dying this is- look at it! Look at them!!! Oh my god!!!”

We usually imagine having to come up with some Devils trade or unholy arrangement to get tech and trade with aliens, but the instant they see us the aliens immediately set out into conservation efforts. They’re like “their habitat is becoming harsh and unlivable for them! We have to save them!” And everyone just puts a picture of us next to this information and they all agree “Look at them! We have to save them!!” We become like the panda mascots of intergalactic conservation efforts.

Simultaneously, our main export is just streams, videos, holograms, and photos of us. Aliens lose their composure completely over videos of us sneezing or yawning or eating pop tarts or playing video games or taking care of our kids.

There are lines of aliens who would LOVE to have a human in their home or on their ship. It’s a little condescending (we’re not sure if we’re guests or well treated exotic pets) but still a good opportunity, and any human who wants can go to space at any time basically for free or even for profit, and the aliens will go out of their way to give you anything you ask for.

There are obvious downsides. We struggle to be taken seriously. While it’s usually shut down pretty quickly, every once in a while some alien group sees the demand for us and tries to start an illegal trade. But at the same time, it’s neat that somewhere out there is an alien (or usually a LOT of aliens) that would love you unconditionally, find every flaw and idiosyncrasy endearing, be worried about you and do anything they could to make you safe and happy. They work hard to make our planet and our personal lives better and don’t ask for anything in return. They just do it because they decided we are important and worth saving just for existing. It’s an odd relationship, and we’re not always sure what to make of it, but honestly it goes a lot better than we worried alien contact would.

I’m down to be a spoiled pampered alien pet.

It would be a lot easier to get “fixed.”

We’re all a bit confused by the cute human memes, which are usually just pictures of some random human with a phrase in alien cuneiform next to it, but which many of the aliens think are hysterical. Photos of the Lincoln Memorial are particularly popular for this for some reason, and it’s a little unsettling to see the alien spaceships with pictures of Lincoln plastered across their forcefields, saying “g+gnor’gax!” and the humor just doesn’t translate at all.

I mean, it’s not bad, exactly. Just…odd. And fortunately alien music is mostly outside our hearing range, so the sad commercials with the interstellar equivalent of Sarah McLachlan broadcasting over them, explaining how the humans are suffering at this time of rotation just look like a rather puzzling montage of normal people. It’s just the aliens get so sad when they see it and their temporal glands leak and it’s…well, a little messy.

Miles de millones de euros abadonados en el mar

En The Economist, Why billions of dollars of goods are stuck at sea,

A finales de agosto la compañía surcoreana Hanjin Shipping, la séptima compañía de transporte marítimo del mundo, se declaró en suspensión de pagos. 66 de sus buques, cargados con 14.500 millones de dólares en bienes de todo tipo, se han quedado tirados en el mar. Ningún puerto del mundo quiere dejarlos atracar al tratarse de buques de una empresa en bancarrota, incapaz de pagar las tasas portuarias. Tampoco quieren que los acreedores soliciten el embargo de los buques y que éstos permanezcan meses ocupando espacio el muelle.

Los contenedores de mercancías cambiaron para siempre el comercio y los negocios aunque —igual que sucedió con las vacunas o el software— cuando se inventaron en los años 50 «pocas personas entendieron la importancia que adquirirían» en el futuro.

Año tras año el uso de los contenedores ha ido creciente por encima de lo que crecía la riqueza mundial, excepto en 2009 (por la crisis) y en 2015. Esta es una de las causas para la quiebra Hanjin: el año pasado por primera vez en medio siglo hubo más contenedores vacíos que ocupados.

This Guy Doodles on His iPad During His Daily Commute on the NYC Subway

by twistedsifter
Al Navarro

I've never read "the Wild Things", I've just see some illustrations of the book(s?) art, but this remind me of that, for some reason...

nyc-subway-doodles-on-ipad-by-ben-rubin-cover

 

Artist Ben Rubin has found a creative way to pass the time on his daily commute to and from work— by doodling on his iPad.

If you’ve ever been on the subway in New York City you know there’s never a shortage of bizarre and interesting things happening. It’s the perfect setting for Rubin’s cartoon characters which he humorously integrates into his immediate surroundings.

You can follow the ongoing series, entitled Subway Doodle, on Instagram and Facebook where he is quickly amassing a loyal following.

Below you will find some of the Sifter’s personal favorites, but be sure to check out the links below for hundreds more!

ha ha, imagine some oceanographer loser at the national environment research council having to board the s.s. boaty mcboatface! imagine her having to tell all her associates that that’s the name of the boat

imagine the ship taking on water in rough seas, and the captain knows he’s made a mistake, and he has to radio for help — “mayday, s.o.s., this is s.s. boaty mcboatface, need immediate assistance” — lololol

ah man. the thing where you take a word, and you put a Y on the end, and then “mc[word]face” or “mc[word]ington” on there like a last name. brilliant

WHY RELEVANT: I was approached for a more official-ish TPG interview by two separate people around the same time, so…I did two! Funnily enough one was a text-chat, the other a skype call. I’m an awkward blabberdunce in both, but both interviewers are cool and you should check more of their stuff out (and my interview(s) I guess)

awed-frog:

robotmango:

it’s ninety-nine degrees outside, four fuck-thousand percent humidity, and my husband was like, “i’m gonna go for a bike ride.” and i was like “why. no. why. don’t put us on the news like that. local fool collapses on unnecessary journey. don’t do it.” so he says he doesn’t want to “hide in the house” because the sun is shining. bruh. honeybruh. “the sun is shining” does not cover it. its hot outside. its motherfucking hot as fuck outside. our outdoor plants have been crying into their hands all week. whole cars are melting into the sewer. our fucking patio umbrella developed sentience to ask me for lemonade this morning

@robotmango, you need to work for the weather forecast - this was both hilarious and so vivid it made me stand up and get some iced tea.

this is a great idea, thank you. here goes. my audition tape for the weather channel. dearly beloved. we are gathered here today to have a fucking funeral for the outdoors. it had a good run, with all its creeks and clouds and shit. pretty great. now it’s ten-thirty at night but still ninety-two asshole-sweating degrees and humid as fuck. everything is hot and slimy, like being a “borrower” that got trapped inside a bottle of shampoo and then accidentally microwaved. you can see on my doppler radar that nothing is moving around out there because everything is probably dead. the only alive thing is the mosquito currently trying to drill a hole in my leg. no surprise that all the shitbag mosquitos are fine, since the thermostat of hell is always at the devil’s preferred temperature. this forecast has gotten away from me a little, but in conclusion fuck the sun
