Nobody makes the distinction better than Encyclopedia Dramatica: The Internet is where normal people go to find things out -- to get business info or the news. The information superhighway, if you will. The internetz is like the landfill beneath that -- a nerd-dominated repository of all things filthy, wonderously bizarre and, most of all, random. Because Wednesday is a slow news day, each week we're bringing you the best of that haphazard world in a collection of loosely related items about whatever topic we happen to come up with. Today, we're bringing you "Haters Gonna Hate," one of our favorite 4chan memes (that link, by the way, is extremely NSFW). Let your freak flag fly.
Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
