Despite how much some claim to love boys, I can’t help but notice their distaste for actual boys and all the things boys love. If you do not love curiosity, wildness, unpredictableness, getting dirty, or making an idiot of yourself… you do not understand boys. How can you say you love them? Fuck off my pond. — Stormofthefirefly

We show off the 10 most recent donations in the sidebar from now on to give the people who help us paying the server bill of $ 200 per month a bit more publicity :) You can decide which name we’ll use and if you want your name to be linked with a website (e.g. your blog). You can donate anonymously with tipit – leave your desired name and link in a comment with your donation.
Besides that I’d like to thank everyone who has donated and everyone who will donate! When we had to switch to our own server I was quite concerned if we will be able to pay the server but you guys are showing great support and it needs usually just a few days every month to get the money for the next bill together :) Thanks!
Each time Google extends Street View to a new country, there’s a fresh wave of ‘privacy’ complaints. The UK’s proving no exception. Over the last two years, Google has been adding street-level photography – Street View – to its maps of various countries. The images are collected using cameras on cars driven around the areas to be covered. Google’s software then stitches the photos together to provide continuous views of the streets
OMG, nekkid kids, we will all diiiieee!!!
“Every time Street View arrives in a new country, there’s a fresh wave of reports of objections to certain images, often because they show someone in a bad light. Examples of UK images Google has been asked to withdraw include people vomiting, being in the immediate vicinity of sex shops, and being arrested. There has even been a report that Google’s cameras snapped a child playing naked in a park in public view.”
The British government — of all people. They have the most CCTV worldwide but now they are “concerned” about privacy because of Google Street View? The fuck. Nice how they get hysterical over a kid playing naked in a park. What’s wrong with a society where RAPE is the first thing you think of when you see some children having fun!? Next thing you know is they’re closing all nudist beaches and the churches are getting rid of all the naked Jesus children… Fucking hypocrites.

In a small town in France that he calls Kidderminster (maps call it something else), there lives a 15-year-old boy named Leo. He’s a mini-troubador who specializes in drums and the left-handed ukelele, and you might already have heard one of his songs, recorded with Kimya Dawson and her husband as a group called Antsy Pants, on the soundtrack to Juno. Leo’s first band (formed when he was only 12) was called Bear Creek, and he and his pal Alex also have a band called the Matching Cubes, but his main project at the moment is playing drums and singing in Coming Soon, a band he formed wih his older brother Ben Lupus and a bunch of their mutual friends. Their music is sweet and naive, wry and dirty, and sung in English – they grew up on British and American music and, as everybody knows, rock music just doesn’t sound right en francais. It’s got an effortless cool that’s half Gallic charm and half Strokes-y self-confidence, but it’s as unpretentious as your average 9-year-old, full of dirty jokes and a quirky sense of fun that recalls their friends in the Moldy Peaches. They’re touring all over France this summer, and their debut album, New Grids is out now on the French label Kitchen.
