Overnight Open Thread

Lotta’ bitchin’ lately about the ‘80s hair metal bands being tacked on to the weekend ONTs. Might be a little too much for you old-timers and hayseeds. Since I’m all about customer service, here’s something maybe a little more your speed (complete with out-of-synch audio/video):

2. The Binarium: Just a reminder that tomorrow is 10/10/10. I think I mentioned it on an ONT last week. Remember to celebrate responsibly yet geekily.

Sloths Gone Wild:

Don Ho Closes it up tonight:

(Well, would've if the embedding hadn't been disabled) Here's linky though.
