Kevin (aka ThreadKilla)

Seattle-based PR guy who loves gadgets, the Red Sox, photography and bacon. Not necessarily in that order.
I think the right phrase is "destroyed music": How an oil engineer created Auto-Tune & changed the music industry http://venturebeat.com/2014...
Good luck in SF @JakePeavy_44. You'll always have fans in #RedSoxNation.

I can't help it. I read stories like this and all I can think is they're doing it to figure out how to serve targeted drug ads to people. - Kevin (aka ThreadKilla) from Bookmarklet

Ocala, FL criminalizes sagging pants - Boing Boing
On the one hand, this is clearly unconstitutional. On the other hand, wearing pants below your butt crack is criminally idiotic. - Kevin (aka ThreadKilla) from Bookmarklet
Huge Microsoft job cuts means we’ll probably be seeing fewer Maseratis and Teslas on the roads here in Seattle. Or not.

Now I need to decide whether the Pats are going to be good enough for me to spend $200 to watch about 12 games via Sunday Ticket streaming. - Kevin (aka ThreadKilla) from Bookmarklet
The top 2 stories on @techmeme right now: Apple-IBM partnership and major Microsoft job cuts. Says a lot about the last 10 years in tech.
All this talk about the new Apple-IBM partnership and no one’s mentioned Pink yet? For shame, Internet, for shame.

Masahiro Tanaka of New York Yankees has partially torn UCL - ESPN New York
The New York Yankees will be without ace right-hander Masahiro Tanaka for at least six weeks due to a partially torn ulnar collateral ligament in his pitching elbow, but for now have dodged the bullet of season-ending Tommy John surgery. ---- BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA - Kevin (aka ThreadKilla) from Bookmarklet

The best worst president ever - Notes & Errata by Mark Morford
"I sipped my rosé, took a deep breath, enjoyed the magnificent landscape as one final, predominant thought swam into view: how? How can there be such a radical disconnect between Mr. Newport’s engorged portfolio, his fantastic insurance plan, low mortgage rate and grotesque corporate privilege – most of it born of the past six years – and Obama’s overall policy successes? Does he consider it all just a fluke? Dumb luck? Is he drunk on Limbaugh and Fox News, unable to see actual facts?" - Kevin (aka ThreadKilla) from Bookmarklet
Touchdown Germany! #WorldCup
RT @PeteAbe: Scoreboard at Fenway showing inconsolable fan crying because her team can’t score. Waiting to see if it’s a Brazil fan or Red Sox fan.
Feeling bad for Brazil right now. No way to exit the World Cup tournament. Can't imagine Rio will feel much like a party town tonight.
If by "runners' high" you mean the feeling of wanting to puke my lungs out after about 5 miles, then, yes I'm the Tommy Chong of running.

Since so many people now think that Melisandre is going to _____ Jon Snow, I'm pretty sure that means it won't happen. - Kevin (aka ThreadKilla) from Bookmarklet
I feel vaguely stupid for not having thought of some of these. - joey
The whole confusion about fostering seems odd - in the cultures Martin is drawing from, that was a very, very common practice, especially during times of potential unrest. That's what you do with the younger children (Ned, Robert) of your political rivals or potential threats. - Jennifer Dittrich
Jennifer, I also don't understand why they'd be doing that as some elaborate, multi-generational plan to later band together and demand something...why not just...band together and demand something? - joey
Maybe it's just me, but I think the article conflates "fostering" in some cases with "hostage-taking." - Kevin (aka ThreadKilla)
Well, that's what it was, though. You 'fostered' your kids with either your enemy, or at least someone politically neutral, and if you didn't hold up your obligations they were forfeit. That didn't always mean death - sometimes that meant their parents were deposed, and they were put in charge, or they were married off to someone in the family to generate heirs down the line with multiple claims. - Jennifer Dittrich

This match has pretty much brought my Saturday to a halt.
I already planned to watch three matches today but at the half I was like 'When this is over I'll go to the farmers market!' and then I ruined everything. - joey

Sometimes when you win, you really lose, and sometimes when you lose, you really win, and sometimes when you win or lose, you actually tie, and sometimes when you tie, you actually win or lose. Winning or losing is all one organic mechanism, from which one extracts what one needs.

RT @panzer: Google gets serious about Android design, again, for the nth time.
ProTip: Shipments ≠ market share.
Today we’ll hear all about the great features of the latest version of Android. Just a year and half before most users get them! (If ever.)
.@PeteAbe First game I get to see live all year so I’m not thrilled to see Buchholz pitch. Too bad Workman’s still suspended.

Hope Solo pleads not guilty; court document describes a brawl | The Today File | Seattle Times
"According to the court document, the teen said he was talking about theatrical productions he’s been in and explaining how he believes that a good actor has to have an “athletic state of mind” when Solo allegedly told him he would never be athletic because he was “too fat and overweight and crazy to ever be an athlete.” The two eventually got into a fistfight, the document says. When the boy’s mother tried to pull Solo off her son, Solo punched her in the face, according to court documents. Court documents also say the nephew broke a broom over Solo’s head and the teen pointed an “old gun that did not work” at Solo to try to get her to leave, but she would not leave and kept “circling like a shark.”" - Kevin (aka ThreadKilla) from Bookmarklet

Let’s face it: if Hope Solo was unattractive, she would've gotten Tonya Harding-ed by the media a long time ago.
Yeah, I get the feeling they passed on the first one because of her husband's previous reputation. This? Obviously all her. - Jennifer Dittrich
Well, that and her discipline issues, griping about playing time with the national team, etc. But she's sorta hot, so she gets a pass. (No pun intended.) - Kevin (aka ThreadKilla)
Well, when Ronaldo’s playing days are over, he won’t need a makeover to lead that 80’s boy band.
