Dad Reflexes

You know this guy's a dad. Not because of his age, but because he protected the person he was with... by reflex, and without having to drop his beer.

If this guy ever gets pulled over and they see him with a beer, all he has to do is show the bat... "Reflexes?  Nope, not affected by the beer at all, ossifer."

Very much yes

Many of the things I enjoy most are because they mean I spend more time on them.

A leisurely shave. Barbecuing -- I love making pulled pork partly because I like eating it, partly because it means I have time to spend six hours babysitting the Weber. Hosting a dinner -- I hate 'cooking supper', but I'm happy to spend a day or two preparing a dinner (some recipes I start the day before to let flavors blend). Baking bread starting with a bowl of warm water and some yeast.

I don't begrudge the things that take time to do them right. I savor them.
 
Gracious Living 101

After a life full of “productivity hacks” as part of an effort to optimize the little personal time available to me, I have reconsidered. As I decompress slowly in a world where I own my every waking and sleeping moment, I look for “idleness hacks”. These are small things that help to remind me of the fact that there is no rush. There will be another bus, boat, train, meal, and day.

Idleness 101 - The Shaving Brush

Shaving is no longer a hurried, sometimes bloody necessity. It is a pleasure. Working up a lather with hot water is relaxing. Taking the time necessary to do a good job is satisfying. In an email-free life one can simply do a really good job (or at least as good a job as one cares to) on every task. No blazing through tasks A, B, and C in order to get to task D.

Food is more carefully prepared and tastes better. Walks are enjoyable and re-routable based on whim. Nothing is rushed through.

Even if you are still gainfully employed, you need to carve out some space and time where you are the Master of Your Own Destiny. May I suggest that your morning shave is such a time.

I like listening to Hank's stories, but I particularly love this one.

I like the one where he shit on people who commit suicide, saying that he could "no longer take (them) seriously," because of it, referred to the 40,000 people who kill themselves annually as having "blew it," and closed his editorial, non-ironically, with the phrase "I have life by the neck and drag it along. Rarely does it move fast enough. Raw Power forever." 

Henry Rollins can never shut the fuck up enough.

aaand back in. I was in at Nirvana level (triple set plus upgrades, but once the shipping was included it was somewhat more than I was prepared to pay), backed off to double sensei (plus two lids and a second base, smoked finish).

Too Cute

Obviously Captain Hammer couldn't do it. Totally not worthy.
 
This is the best thing I've seen all day.

I said it was a bad idea to steal the Sultan of Air's jewels, but when does anyone ever listen to me in this party?

Definitely see Hayao Miyazaki's influence in this.
 
French Student Sets Internet on Fire with Animation Inspired by Moebius, Syd Mead & Hayao Miyazaki
The internet over in Japan was lit ablaze last month by a student film. Titled “Celles et Ceux des Cimes et Cieux” (“Girls and Guys from the Summits and the Skies”), the short is a gorgeously animated trailer for what looks like an amazing yet-to-be-made feature film.

On Inheriting a Threatened Throne

"Your majesty, the forces arrayed against you... regardless of how this plays out, you will be bloody to the shoulder.

"If you act now, decisively and ruthlessly, your arm will be bloodsoaked and stained to the shoulder.

"If you wait and let them act against you before responding, you will wade through blood shoulder-deep.

"If you do nothing, there will be minimal blood shed... but it will be that of those you love and honor, filling the bucket your enemies will hold you in head-first."

Not seeing a problem here

I honestly can't say I like the swim suit, but I do like the tan lines.

Forget Hogwarts

I distinctly remember that the first time I watched this movie I desperately, desperately wanted to go to school there. Even though I knew it was a fictional place.

I still do.
 
This reminded me what a fun movie this is & begs a rewatch soon.

Dat Voice

Freed from a private share... I've long thought that Peter Dinklage has one of the best faces in Hollywood, I didn't expect this voice from him singing.

And the snark in this is quite... impish.
