I don’t know how this story isn’t getting more play, but Grimes just casually admitted that she had a friend launch a DDOS attack on Hipster Runoff back in 2012. If you don’t know what a DDOS attack, it basically overrides your site with server requests, crippling it in the process. It is not cool, and for small independent sites, it can wreak instant and very expensive havoc on your infrastructure. According to Grimes, she kept the attack going until the site agreed to take down an unflattering article about her, which is supremely f*cked up. (AV Club)

A tweet from @RomGothSam reminded drmllz that she read Anya Seton’s Dragonwyck as a young teen, probably too young. “Indeed, there is an explicit attempt to invoke a Northern American Gothic heritage-Edgar Allan Poe appears, for instance, to introduce Nicholas to opium.” What were you reading at too young of an age?
