The GardenDespatches from The Satyrs’ Forest

Mx Tynehorne’s link roundup, volume XV

A parked lorry, late at night, bearing the name "Discordia" on its side.
Seen on the way back home from Manchester — why on earth would you call your logistics company “Discordia”? It’s like calling an airline “Icarus”. Just asking for trouble.

    Someone once pointed out to me the strangeness of naming a chat client discord.

    I love Golden Brown. Instantly captivating song.

  2. Xanthe says…

    On the contrary, i would argue that Discord is in fact the perfect name for a yoof-focused chat app. It brings to mind “discussion” and “discourse”, while still maintaining a wry, anarchic sense of humour about the whole affair (“well, we know you’re just going to use it to get into fights”).

    God, i sound like Patrick Bateman.
