The Internet Has More Secrets To Behold

If you haven’t heard of an “easter egg” — the extra, pointless doo-hickey that gets stuck into programs, CDs, search engines and video games — then you simply aren’t spending enough time on the internet. These are reserved for when one has actually reached the end of the web; when you’ve checked everything 9 billion times and there’s nothing left. I guess it also applies to CDs and movies. You bought the DVD and you watched it twice and now you’ve seen it and don’t want to watch it again. Well, I’m not going to help you watch it over and over, because that’s not my thing (though I strongly suggest that, if that is your thing, you go search the movies at the first link below). I am, however, really into milking the internet for all its virtual milkiness; same goes for boring computer applications. Now you, too, can be the asshole who’s like, “You guys know that in Airplane! they stuck in Adolf Hitler as a member of the tech crew?” And everyone’s like, “Whaaaaa?”
Here, some hidden gems for your nerdy pleasures:
What people did before the internet.
“Chicago” — Sufjan Stevens (mp3)
“It’s All Mixed Up” — Red House Painters (mp3)
