So, It's Come To This: A MacBook Selfie Stick

February 26, 2016


This is the MacBook selfie stick, a two-handed selfie stick for MacBooks created by artists Moises, John Yuyi and Tom Galle. They aren't actually selling the device, but rather created it as a social commentary on our "obsession with self and vanity," because that's completely new and original social commentary that in no way hasn't already been beat into the f***ing ground like a fence post. We get it, selfies are big right now. FUN FACT: I have never taken a selfie before. I almost pushed the button once but it looked like I had three chins so I broke the front facing camera on my phone so I'd never be tempted again.

Thanks to SAM, who's holding out for a selfie stick for an IMAX camera.

  • "...created by fags Moises, John Yuyi and Tom Galle."

    I fixed it for you. Somehow it's even worse when it's done "ironically".

  • I figured out I could shove my 99 cent tablet in a mic stand clip, purely because the salesperson told me I "didn't wanna be 'That Guy' who takes video on a tablet." Looks like I win...

    The zombie apocalypse and fall of society needs to happen ASAP.

    Zombies are a critique of consumer culture.

    Most of the realistic apocalypse scenarios are pretty boring. For example ocean acidification is happening now and a very significant amount of marine life is dying because of it.

    There's less life-ending triggers for societal collapse like helium loss. The ground reserves of helium are drying up and once we run out of underground helium pockets we'll have to change how we manufacture a large number of things that are used by the civilized world.

    At just about any time a pandemic could wipe out entire species and if it's not a species we actively monitor it could go unnoticed until the ecological niche the species fills causes a second wave of extinction which cascades upwards.
