I've been listening to a few episodes of the Smart Passive Income
podcast and, for the heck of it, I'm trying making an amazon affiliates website. And so, I introduce to the world, Board Games For... (Board Game Reviews)
which is a quick website where I write blurbs about board games with the intent of redirecting them to the Amazon page for those games where I would get a cut of the money if someone buys it.
We'll see how it works out. I've got to generate all the content for the blog now, but the main goal is to get people onto the site and over to Amazon.
So let's say you're Taylor Swift. I'm sure all the time fourteen year old girls say to you, "YOU GET ME, TAYLOR!" and "Your song meant so much to me! I did
know that he was trouble when he walked in! Your music really helped me get through a hard time! I told him we were never ever ever getting back together!"
But I wonder if you are other musicians if anyone is just ever like "hey so at work I spend a lot of time filing TPS reports and doing HR duties and I like listening to your music when I do it.
Anyhow, in case anyone was looking for a good set of songs to do mortgages to, here is mine. The key is keeping things pretty fast paced. Enjoy all of my both good and/or embarrassing songs!
Ironically, lyrics may not be safe for work on a few of these.

This song except the extended
version. From Attack on Titan [Hulu Link]
which I watched in like 5 days while feeding our new baby in the middle of the night. If you think this is nerdy, wait until a few songs down
I've always found the video kind of obnoxious but the song catchy. It's a Far East Movement
Here are a pic from browsing imgur.com on my phone
I'm posting from my phone and am curious to see how this looks later.
And I'm sure this would only be in certain cities and blah blah blah but still a very sci-fi sort of idea.

Someone made a game about developing games. That game got pirated. So, to fight back, the real life developers made it so that if you were playing a pirated copy of the game, your in-game game company would go bankrupt from piracy: http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2013-04-29-game-dev-tycoon-forces-those-who-pirate-the-game-to-unwittingly-fail-from-piracy
....or it's just burning of NH4Cr2O7 with hidden HgSCN
(I just copy/pasted that from the file description)
A whole gallery of weird/interesting reactions (that will take a while to load):
The Consumerist had an interesting article
about the terms of being a franchisee for Subway which included this from a subway worker:
2) How many veggies are supposed to come on a Subway sandwich? For a 6 inch, it is:
1 oz of cheese
.75 oz of lettuce
.5 oz spinach
.5 oz of onions
3 strips of green peppers
3 olives, 3 banana peppers, 3 pickles, 3 jalapenos
If a Subway chooses to give you more veggies than that, BE GRATEFUL
And today I went to Subway and I got like 10 green peppers on my footlong.
And speaking of women in mirrors, if you have been looking for Manet Trucker Hats for Christmas, I happened upon this in my search for images for this post.
And if you have been looking for a name for your metal band, may I recommend: Manet Trucker Hat. I know of at least one item you can sell at your merch table
